Our weekend at Chateau Norm’s was nothing less than spectacular. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left it was pure bliss. When we arrived we were immediately greeted by Maya and Roper!

We thoroughly enjoyed every moment at Chateau Norm. Our hosts, Lori and Norm, made us feel at home and our every need was met. The beds and bedding are high quality and combined with the beautiful setting and perfectly clean air ensured that we slept well and woke up refreshed for a day of hiking and exploring Haida culture and...

We stayed at Chateau Norm for 5 days. Norm is a great guy with a laid back disposition. If we wanted anything, all we had to do was knock on his door and he was there to give us anything we needed. We got to have a fire and cook out with the sunset going down. It was a great... More

Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate hearing how we can make improvements, however we do think the rating is a little unfair. We tried to be accommodating to you, and moved you into three different suites to try and make you happy. The website does say that the suites are equipped with kitchens except the Boathouse, which is continental breakfast... More

I came from Phoenix, Arizona to run the Totem to Totem half-marathon. I knew nothing about this little island, but was excited to visit! I traveled with my dad, we did a bunch of research online before deciding on Norm's place. We were the first to stay in the Club House and Boat House, the perfect set up for people... More

Norm is a great host and has built a cozy, green cabin this past year that we stayed in. If you are flying into Sandspit and travelling without a car, Eagle Transport will drop you off and pick you up at Norm's. We made use of the complimentary bikes and kayaks which can take you to QCC or Skidigate. A... More

Thanks for your review and feedback. We did just finish construction of the Beach Cabin and there are still a few things we are working on. We are getting a stained glass window to put between the bathroom and main room, and we have just installed a new router so WIFI now reaches the cabin. We are still researching options... More

Staying with Norm and Lorri on their gorgeous waterfront property was indeed a treat. They brought us in as if we were family and showed us the truly beautiful parts of the island. Norm and Lorri are warm and thoughtful people who have created a wonderful life which they willingly share with all the guests they host. The space itself... More

The upper suite worked very well for our family of five - plenty of room and very comfortable. We loved sitting on our deck facing the boat launch where we could watch the eagles while we enjoyed a glass of wine and waited for the barbecue. A special highlight was the hot tub with the most fantastic moonlight views. On... More

We stayed at Chateau Norm for the first part of our honeymoon and loved it! Norm was very warm and welcoming, without being intrusive, from the moment we got there. We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, which suited us perfectly, especially since there weren't any other guests upstairs so the extra added privacy was nice. Norm took us out on... More
