Country Haven is a marvellous place to stay. We have stayed there a number of times - we prefer the cottages - and quality, congeniality and fly fishing expertise are as high as you can get! The owner, Byron, took the time to personally teach my wife the art of fly casting ( Phew..! Dodged that bullet!") ! Great and clean accommodations, fishing guides who know what they are doing, lots to see and do in the area (including MANY Geocache opportunities) and a great beach and seafood close by!
If we cannot return to Country Haven this summer we will certainly return next year!

(ps we last stayed there in 2019 but had this site allows only 2020 or 2021 dates so we chose 2020.)

I have been visiting Country Haven for approximately 15 years and that, in and of itself, sort of says all you need to know! The accommodations are very comfortable, the food is fantastic and the staff are some of the finest people you will meet along the river. The Lodge Owner, Byzie Coughlan, has been at this a long while knows what visitors expect when they come to the Miramichi, whether for Atlantic salmon fishing or just to relax for a few days, any time of the year.. Country Haven has access to a wide variety of salmon pools for Atlantic Salmon and their guides are incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and kind. The staff who work in the kitchen are super friendly and have a wonderful sense of humour too! Before coming here on my own and with my family, I used to come here when I hosted events for my own business' clients ... many who had never fly fished before. It was a great place to have people try the sport and we created countless memories at Country Haven especially for our clients who were lucky enough to hook their first Atlantic Salmon! Bottom line is that I would unreservedly recommend Country Haven to family, friends or strangers ... you just can't go wrong. I know that it can be hard to get booking sometimes (other than during Covid!) because Country Haven has so many repeat visitors from the US, UK and Europe, but Byzie will always go out of his way to fit you in if it is humanly possible! I last visited Country Haven in mid April and my wife hooked her first Atlantci Salmon! What a memory! Thanks Byzie and the entire Country Haven team for always taking good care of us when we visit!

We had a great 2-night stay in June and the owner Byzie and Diesel (dog) look after all of your needs. The cabins have everything you need including TV, Wifi, Full Kitchen and Bathroom plus a big porch screened in and not.
The fishing is the best (see pics.) and many other activities including swimming, canoeing, golf in nearby Doaktown, and great fire pits to enjoy.
You can also choose to read a book as the river floats on by.
We WILL be back for sure.

We were looking for a relaxing weekend getaway on the river and wow did we get it! We spent the weekend at the Half-Way Lodge on the Cains and it was absolute perfection. Byzie showed us the way to the camp and we were blown away at how beautiful, peaceful and secluded this place was. It had everything we needed and more (including wifi in an otherwise unserviced area), fully stocked kitchen, games, BBQ, hammock and fire pit.
My boyfriend and I were both able to feed our souls in the ways we were hoping - me with an great book in hand by the river and him with a fly rod trying his best to hook a bite!
We didn’t see anyone all weekend except a family on a canoe trip adventure and a little bear cub playing on the opposite side of the river bank at dusk.
We would have gladly stayed a week if life would allow-
We can’t wait to return in the future.
Thanks for all of your hospitality Heather & Byzie!

Very friendly hospitality, beautiful location at main lodge with options to explore many local rivers. Even offering beautiful lodging along the Cains River.

I don't like Leaving ! The Salmon fishing makes country haven special & the team make it extra special ! I whole heartedly recommend a stay whether you are looking to fish for Atlantic Salmon or just want to enjoy a relaxing break on the banks of the river. I must also add that both the comfort of the lodge & the home cooking are excellent!

If you are planning to stay in the Miramichi area and love to fish, Country Haven is the place to go. The property is beautifully maintained, scenic and enchanting. The cottages are comfortable, filled with local maritime decor and feel like home the minute you walk in. Our hosts Byron and Heather attended to our every need. The home-cooked food sticks to your ribs. Our guide Jeremy gave us a wonderful fly fishing experience on the beautiful, breath-taking Miramichi River and worked hard to help us perfect our casting technique while sharing many stories about the area. Honestly one of the best travel experiences I've ever had.

We spent the day on the Miramichi with our guide and had 2 meals at the lodge. The owners and staff were amazing!

We will definitely return next year and spend a few days at the lodge and fish!

It has been about a year since we stead here. I had a wonderful time! We went on a family trip and stead for two days in the two bedroom cottage. Our main point of going was to go on a tubing adventure which was fun even though we got rained on for more then a hour. The cottage had everything we needed. Two bedrooms ,A screened in porch, A BBQ, Wifi, DVD player, TV, A/C , everything you need to cook with, lots of towels, lots of peace and quiet! and the view is breathtaking. We went for a boat (canoe?) ride which the lodge provided us free of charge.We had a Bonfire. It was so much fun that I am going this month with friends and we are going to stay in the three bedroom cottage! I've attached pictures of our stay last year!

I usually don't make a point of writing reviews, but Byron and everyone at Country Haven were such excellent hosts that I wanted to make a point of doing so for them. My dad and I were looking for a father-son trip; neither of us had ever fly-fished before, and our guide was great about teaching us the ropes and helping us out through some less-than-ideal conditions. The lodge we stayed in was beautiful, the food was great, as was the conversation with the veteran fishers the place attracts. We felt like we'd been welcomed into a real community for a few days. I certainly hope to return.

Can't find prices anywhere. Do I have to call for their rates?
Answer from Denise B
2 contributions1 helpful vote
I believe so. There are different cottages ex 2 bedrooms or 3 bedrooms as well as a lodge so prices would be different for each. Could possibly vary by season. While I don't recall specifics, prices were quite reasonable.
