Nicely appointed clean cabins, Perfect location for the early morning ferry. Gas fireplace and a nice deck. BBQ. Functional kitchenette. No play area for kids on property. Not the most idyllic location with some light industry below the property but the view of Bear Cove from the cabin is very nice. Pet friendly. I would happily stay here again.

Just charming. Great view. Nicely appointed units. Grill available for use. Sensible kitchenette. We were glad for a home cooked meal after days on the road with restaurant food. Quiet except during ferry arrival - departure which creates a short window of street traffic. Owners were helpful. Ferry terminal is close, but not close enough to hike with luggage. With... More

The place is ideal before or after the trip through the Inside Passage. It is located only 1 km from the ferry-terminal. Even better is that the cottages are really comfortable. The view is tremendous. The cottages are clean and have all facilities, including a propane fire place and a jacuzzi.

We booked a fishing trip with Wicked Salmon Sport Fishing. Part of the package was a stay at the Bear Cove Cottages in Port Hardy BC. The cabins are amazing. Spotlessly clean and extremely well kept up. They are so well maintained they appear to be brand new inside and out. The bed was very comfortable and include a couple... More

This place is awesome! Cottages are very clean, comfortable and have everything necessary to make the trip enjoyable. Room had a queen bed and a bunk which was perfect for me and my two boys. Cottages are located in close proximity to the city center with a beautiful view of the harbor and walking distance to the water.

We stayed two days after a week of many travels. The quiet location and downtime was just what the Dr ordered. The cabins were in perfect condition, very clean and well appointed. Price was reasonable. A quiet family run business, in a very quiet setting. Views of the bay are as advertised.

Visited here for two days on way to ferry. Lovely cottage - very spacious with kitchen. Balcony with views over ocean and seats outside. Friendly staff and everything clean. Only complaints are the skylight has no curtain so light streams in as soon as sun rises. You also overlook other rooms at times so we kept one curtain closed. Cottages... More
