My wife, my 16 years old daughter and myself visited Bella Coola during the last week of August 2016 (5 nights). It was a raining week, but no impact for having a great time anyway.The business is managed by Leonard's family, the atmosphere of a very warm home.We booked 1 day Bella Coola tour ( eg. petroglyphs, bears viewing - a mam with 2 cubs! ), 2 days amazing overnight boat tour ( eg. hot springs, big tree, dolphins, killer whales, crabs, prawns - out skipper Croydon was just a wonderful guide and chef) and unforgettable wilderness rafting with Kynoch Adventures when we followed a bear for about 40 minutes with tonnes of pictures. We were picked up / dropped off by Leonard at the airport and managed avoid renting a car. The cabin #1 is very clean and it has a full kitchen, so you can cook/BBQ. We bought groceries on our way from the airport to the resort. FYI: you can walk to a supermarket ( max 15 min ) or there is an organic store few mins walk just across the street ( HW 20 ). Leonard treated us with a piece of a wild salmon, let us (for fun) to dig some potatoes, we pulled few carrots and picked up few corns - what a BBQ dinner it was! I also enjoyed to split the woods to be used after for heating the cabins - that's a very interested experience!

Room Tip: cabin #1 is perfect!

Awesome location, surrounding, view, people & cabin. Cabin neat, tidy, cozy, clean & fresh. Owners very friendly and helpful. Close to shops & lots of walking trails. Highly recommend!! We stayed 3 nights would stay a lot longer if I could.

Had an awesome voyage up the bentick arm to some natural hot springs. It was incredible. The captain and first mate were personable and very knowledgable. Megan was great with our toddler. The big cedar was super impressive

We had a trip booked with Leonard and it was amazing. We had a wonderful day. The scenery in this area is just breath taking. Lunch was provide which was delicious. Totally recommend going on this outing.

Really felt safe on the boat, as not a very good sea traveller.

The cabin was fantastic. Fully stocked kitchen, woodstove, plenty of wood available for guests. The views from the front porch of our (and presumably all) cabin was spectacular.

We were unable to go out on a boat tour but Leonard and his daughter Shannon took us on a tour around looking for grizzly bears. As the salmon were spawning there was a good chance we could see one. Wasn't meant to be...we were about a month early, there are a few around but most were still up in the mountains filling up on berries. Leonard knows his stuff! He taught us about the bear habitats, took us to prime possible viewing locations, showed us where some bears had bedded down. Very interesting!

I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone heading up to Bella Coola.

Thanks again Leonard and Shannon!

Room Tip: I believe all four cabins are the same.
