We spend 3 sunny warm days in Sweetypie, a funky, cozy little cabin and enjoyed the stellar views of the beach ….. the beach that goes on for miles! Sweetypoo was very cute & the rainwater shower was toasty warm and perfect! It’s all very secluded too! (Perhaps the addition of a crib board would be good) The kitchen is very workable & the BBQ was great! It was all very clean and comfy! We did anticipate a propane fridge … although there was a cooler, it was a trek the next day for ice. The sounds of the waves at nite was so soothing! The beaching was great … everyday was a new experience!

Octopus House Don’t let the modest exterior fool you…This small-ish cabin is full of character and laid out to optimize the narrow but tall space. A side entrance and covered porch is handy for hanging any wet items and to store multiple coolers sheltered from the elements. Once you’re inside, Octopus House is divided by a light filled loft with sleeping nook. The main floor also boasts a two-person sleep space that doubles as a couch. Upstairs two comfortable chairs provide plenty of room for reading, knitting, or whatever you like to do on your downtime. I have never slept better in this quiet space, and waking up to the warm glow through the skylight is hard to beat. As an off-grid rental, you will have to boil water for washing up, but lucky for you…a propane heater provides on demand hot water for a private inside-outside shower experience at the back of the house. You may only book for a couple nights, but be assured you’ll want to stay longer.

We stayed in the Frogmore cabin for four nights and loved every minute. The off the grid experience reminded us how to slow down and be in the moment. The lack of cell service was perfect! We could get cell service down at the beach but found we cared less and less about that as we enjoyed our days in the peaceful cabin. We loved the decorating in Frogmore...so much thought and character everywhere you looked. The outdoor shower and the outhouse even had thoughtful touches. We had everything we needed for a wonderful experience. Lisa was a gracious host, wonderful to visit and was always available if we needed her. We brought two bags of ice for our cooler which easily lasted a couple days and it's not far to drive to Masset for more ice and groceries. We brought along a couple freeze dried meals as well that only needed boiling water which came in handy when we were low on groceries and finishing up last of our food at the end of trip. We also brought a portable charger for our cell phones to ensure we had enough batteries for all of the photos we wanted to take. Our bed was very comfortable, we couldn't ask for a nicer stay. We could not see the beach from our cabin, but it was only a short walk and we actually liked that our cabin was tucked away in the trees and not far from parking to haul our things in. A couple of the cabins were on the beach and also looked lovely. Thank you Lisa, we will definitely return one day :-)

We spent 3 nights in the Ravenshoe cabin and loved it! It was misty/rainy most of the time we were there and the cabin stayed warm and cozy with the wood burning stove. Plenty of firewood. One of the most organized, well-stocked kitchens I've ever stayed in, they really make very efficient use of the space they have. One of my pet peeves about rental homes is that the kitchen knives are usually dull and old, I was super happy to see so many really sharp chef's knives! The beds were cozy and comfortable (I slept downstairs in the cozy little nest next to the living room/kitchen and my daughter slept upstairs. Great Poang chairs upstairs to read in while you watch the waves over the top of your book. Note: upstairs is accessed via a ladder but it has wide steps rather than rungs. The location is perfect for beach walks and exploring Tow Hill. Communication with Lisa was timely and friendly. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, it was our favorite spot of the 4 different places we stayed on Haida Gwaii.

From the moment we arrived I was in heaven - the cabin and the stunning view. The incredible beach was right in from of us. On the misty days my husband LOVED the wood stove (which also provided hot water for washing up the dishes. A most popular item was the basket for lifting things up to the loft. Help was quick to come when the motion light in the outhouse ran out of batteries. I feared we would not get to experience the solar lighting as it was light out until well past 10 pm in early July. We have much more to experience. Thank you both for a memorable family experience.

Incredible experience! Loved the atmosphere, so well thought out and decorated so thoughtfully. The loft upstairs will blow your mind. Beds incredibly comfortable and you won’t find another place that beats the views. The beach goes on for miles...

Just back from an amazing 2 part trip to Haida Gwaii. Part 1 was a 4 day trip to Gwaii Haanas with Moresby Explorers out of Sandspit (reviewed on their entry, but also 5 stars). Part 2, in this review, was to the North end via rental car picked up at Sandspit Airport, with a stay at All The Beach You Can Eat. Our stay was excellent in every way: * Booking was a breeze with all done with no fuss via email * on arrival, we were greeted by a whiteboard welcome as we came up the driveway that also gave directions to our cabin (we were in Ravenshoe which is a 50 M or so walk from the parking area). NB there were wheelbarrows at the parking that could be used to transport bags and food, but we packed light and just carried our things. * the cabin was lovely. It's on the beach, very private & set back in the dunes at the tree line just enough to get some shelter from onshore winds - which blew pretty much Gale force most of the time we were there, but never bothered us in the cabin and added to the views and beach walking! * everything we needed for cooking and was in the cabin. We had bought 1st day supplies at the co-op in Masset before going to the cabin so were set up for dinner the 1st night and following day breakfast. As it was early season, we weren't sure what added things we might find in the cabin that prior guests had left so we also bought anything we though we might need with dinner or breakfast like cooking oil, spices, etc and went prepared to find nothing. While the cabin is off the grid, there was no lack of comforts. **There was plenty of solar lighting so that wasn't an issue (although at this time of the year it wasn't dark until well after 10 PM, so we weren't moving around much by the time it became dark and never tested their staying power... ** the stove is propane, so cooking was easy. **there is an excellent cooler for cold storage. We bought 1 bag of ice and most of it remained when we packed up to leave ** the wood stove did an excellent job of taking off the chill & quickly heated the space. ** the BBQ, a tabletop Weber, was great and, unlike many places we've stayed, was in excellent condition (and I was happy to see that a full back up bottle was there as well). ** the seating was simple and comfortable and the small deck off the East side of the cabin had 2 resin Muskoka style chairs that we sheltered enough to be usable even with the winds that were blowing ** a plus is that the shower and composting toilet, while outside of the main cabin are accessed via a covered breezeway. Having grown up using an off the grid family cottage where trips to the outhouse meant an outdoors hike, this was like living in the lap of luxury. ** most importantly there was a french press for morning coffee..... From the cabin it is under 50 feet to the beach where you can walk for miles. Our rental car had a timer that restarted every drive and it let us know that Massett was a leisurely 17 minutes to the West and Tow Hill 16 minutes to the East. The road is paved for the first 12 minutes from Masset and from there to the end at Tow Hill is very well maintained gravel. The power line ends with the pavement. We spent most of our time walking area beaches & trails and exploring around Old and New Masset with the longest trip being to Port Clements to walk the Golden Spruce trail. While Rose Spit is a long (10 km) walk from the Tow Hill parking lot, it would be an easy bike ride or, if you have a 4x4 an easy drive along the beach to reach. Being off the grid, there are no amenities beyond the great view and a few books that have been provided / left by prior guests. Not even a radio and no cell reception(although my wife did break down and found that she could pick up a signal if standing below the high tide line on the beach. For my part, I found that lack of contact was ideal and hope it stays that way. In all a perfect base camp for local exploring the top end of Haida Gwaii!

Me and my wife have spent a week at Rich and Lisa’s “All the beach you can eat” cabins on Haida Gwaii twice. All their cabins are works of art with great views of the Pacific, and on a good day you can see Alaska in the distance. The beach is right there with ever changing weather scenes going by as you sit on the cabin porch or inside watching through the window. It’s all off grid, but it’s all there. Outhouses are the best and cleanest you’ve ever used, with running (rain)-water and hot showers. The forest surrounding the area is pure magic, the beach goes on forever and a drive/trek to Rose Spit will take you to the end of the island where you can see both the North beach and the East beach. Rich and Lisa are artistic craftspeople and have built the cabins with mostly hand tools and the results are amazing! The gem is the “Raven Shoe” with an incredible view from the upstairs room, but all their cabins are something special and this is truly the number one place to stay on Haida Gwaii!

Incredible stay at All the Beach You Can Eat. This was our second visit—the first time we stayed in the Whale House, which is cozy and cute and just a two minute walk down to the beach. But this time we got to split our time right down on the beach between the Sweetypie and the Ravenshoe, with the wild wide ocean right in front of us. We loved the wood stoves and the surprise hot showers, and especially all the big and little details Lisa and Rich have put into their cabins...there's really nothing else like them and they're super fun to explore. Can't wait for our next visit!
