We have heard of the beauty of Haida Gwaii for years and took the opportunity to discover it for ourselves . 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. Our hostess Joelle ( Haida House Manager) and Aaya Aaya ( her... More

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

I spent the last 3 days at the Haida House and Tllaal and it is one of the moist beautiful accommodations I have every been too. A beautiful setting, log design which made the facility to comfortable, friendly staff and I know the local Aboriginal community benefits and owns the location. A short walk to the beach and a river... 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

We needed to travel a bit outside the customary 'package trip' time line but this seemed a "no problem" situation for Kathy and Joelle and they organized a special 9 days for us and were flexible re the programs. We loved it all , the peace of the Island, meeting the Haida Nation peoples ( they have a rich culture... More

Four of us, all adults, spent five nights at Haida House and all of us agreed that the food (breakfasts and dinners) and warm attention added to the great experience of visiting Haida Gwaai. Joelle and her staff were easy to deal with and responsive to our requests. The rooms were clean and comfortable and serviced daily without any fuss.... More

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful 4 day stay at Haida House where we opted for the 'Discover Haida Gwaii' package. From the moment Joelle picked us up at the ferry, throughout the cultural tour lead by Albert and the final wave of goodbye from Kathy our entire visit was the most marvellous experience. We've never... More
