Float Inn was wonderful. It's cute and romantic, unique, and very comfortable with everything you might need ... only problem was having to leave it. It is located on a quiet part of a working wharf and watching the coming and goings of the boats (and harbour seals) was all part of the fun. The owner is a gem and... More

We stayed at the Float House Inn this summer and had an amazing stay! The unique, quaint Float House is both comfortable and super fun. The view off the back deck is second to none!! One of our favourite activities was cooking our dinner off the back of the boat on the onboard barbecue and sitting eating it on the... More

My husband and I and our 2 dogs stayed on the Float House Inn for several nights. It is a one of a kind cute little houseboat docked in the Bella Coola marina. The view from the back of the boat is beautiful and constantly changing, this is one of the best things about the Float House Inn. We loved... More

We thought two nights might be enough for a family of 4 on a floating boat, but I wish we had booked it for the whole week! It was my favorite accommodation in our 3 week trip in BC. The photos don't do it justice. The inside is super comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen including an herb garden on... More

My hubby and I spent our 4th wedding anniversary at the Float House Inn and it amazing...the drive in was terrifying and beautiful, and our first sight of the Bella Coola Harbour & the Float House Inn literally left us speechless. Spectacular scenery, amazing people and the cutest accomodation ever. Great welcome and thoughtful hosts ensured we had everything we... More

A hop skip and a steep road to Bella Coolla for the ferry saw us on a cute little house boat sipping wine on the roof garden on a summers evening. The host was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. With one double bed and two singles, the four of us had an amazing time each evening giggling at... More

I can't recommend The Float House Inn enough. The facilities on board are just what you need, and who would have thought such a small wash room would have such a great (and hot) shower! The view from the back and top balconies was fantastic - we arrived prepared with food and drink for our two nights, and couldn't get... More

We loved our time in the Float House Inn - by far the unique and wonderful experience in our coastal BC circle tour. We too enjoyed our kayak trip - we went up the coast a bit and explored the beautiful scenery easily accessed from the harbour location of the Float House Inn. We tried crabbing with equipment supplied -... More

A great experience. We loved the location, the amenities and the helpful owners. The view from the stern of the mountains, the fishing boats leaving in the morning, kayaking into the estuary with the boat provided with the Float House Inn really made it a unique and special experience. The owners were very helpful, showed us how to crab fish... More

We would like to thank you very much for the wonderful stay aboard the Float house Inn! Your attention to detail and cleanliness is outstanding! We enjoyed a kayak around the harbor and loved exploring the old cannery. We had the best time just sitting outside by candle light with our glass of wine and listening to the very comical... More
