Words cannot describe this place. History meets scenery meets wildlife meets hospitality. The 5 minute boat ride is a treat, the accommodations delightful, two beaches, trails and buildings to explore, glaciers in the distance. We had a wonderful peaceful time there and wish we could have stayed all week. Garrett and Skye couldn't have been better hosts and gave us an incredible tour of the cannery. We can't recommend it highly enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Talheo Cannery inn is on the site of salmon cannery that closed down 30 years ago. It's at the bottom of a 3000 metre mountain with a glacier beside a deep fjord. Sensational views across the bay. Jim the owner picks you up in a boat and it's a five minute ride from Bella Coola to the cannery with its tumbledown buildings. Guests stay in the former ladies' bunkhouse. We had a double bed with views across the bay. We cooked our own supper in the cook house while Jim told us lots of grizzly bear stories. If more than six people staying they will get a cook to come over from Bella Coola. ... more less
