I spent 5 days at Haida House in July, on the Discover Haida Gwaii package. I have limited mobility and, from the moment I was welcomed by Joelle and Kathy, to the final farewell, I didn't have to worry about a thing. Everyone who works at Haida House is warm and friendly, my room was very comfortable, and the food... More

We stayed three nights here and had a wonderful experience, from the delicious food to the comfy beds in our room overlooking the river, to the helpful, friendly staff. Kathy and Joelle were so welcoming and bent over backwards to make our stay the best it could be. Common lounge area with coffee, water, fridge, tv. Five minute walk to... More

My wife and I spent a week at Haida House. Wonderful value luxury accommodation and meals and a rich Haida culture weekend including a genuine Haida meal and visits to Haida carver, Louise Island and the Haida Heritage Museum and the Agate Beach at Old Masset. Lovely to see local Haida involved in high quality tourism. Congratulations to the warm... More

We were so fortunate to book it within the Pen and Palette weekend at the Haida House along with 10 other guests It totally exceeded our expectations.

Haida House is a lovely lodge, with the look of a gigantic log cabin. The reception area and dining room are first class, but the room was a bit disappointing - very spartan and no T.V. in the room. Terrific beds and pillow, and everything immaculate. The staff are very friendly, but could use some more training. Attention to detail... More

I had the fortunate opportunity to partake in the Pen and Palette weekend at Haida House. It was an amazing experience - Enriching, rejuvenating, delicious and fun are only a few word to describe a weekend that really is indescribable. The Haida House family were lovely hosts - Warm and Welcoming. Everything is done with quality and authenticity in mind,... More

18th-20th May 2015. A beautiful cedar house with clean, spacious, comfortable rooms. I had a view of the Tlaal river and watched river otters playing while eagles circled above the magnificent forest. Helpful, friendly staff offered information on the local area and served delicious food. The Haida art adds to the local ambience. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Staying at Haida House at Tillaal was the perfect place to stay . It is right on the river where you can watch Eagles while you are feasting on the delicious food in the dining room. A very short distance away and over the dunes is a magnificent beach. You could walk for miles and miles. We enjoyed the location... More

This fine west coast dining establishment is located on the scenic Tlell River. Food is expensive and menu is limited but the setting is lovely. Décor is very west coast with traditional totems and other Haida carvings. You can choose to dine inside or out on the deck. Location is somewhat out of the way but getting there is half... More
