The living/dining room has a pine ceiling, wood flooring, and comfy couches that call to you to curl up with a good book. Included is a futon for extra guests. There is a dining table, chairs for eight, an eclectic selection of books, CD’s and player, and TV with DVD player (new TV with USB connection). While we have no television reception, there is a great selection of movies for your enjoyment. This is truly a cozy yet spacious place to relax after a busy day of exploring these mystical islands.More

Toad Farm is great for exploring Graham Island towns, beautiful forest trails with great birding, beaches, museums, and guided fishing. The nearby grocery was small but very convenient. On weekends they have fabulous cinnamon rolls. Leandre was a perfect host and generous. He grew up on the island and knows it well. This made for a very nice vacation for us.

We needed a place to stay for our trip to Haida Gwaii and when we picked our date well in advance we had no idea that was the weekend of the music festival for Tliel so accommodation was very sparse. Having never stayed on Haida Gwaii we now know that this is a great location mid island. Leandre is a great host and met us on arrival with a dozen fresh eggs which were delicious. The place is very spacious, well appointed and we did spend a lot of time in the Sun room. It was perfect for our 4 day time on the Haida Gwaii.

Enjoyed our stay at Toad Farm which provided comfortable accommodation ideally set-up for families. Loved the location which was close the beach and several excellent hikes. It was a pleasure to get to know Leandre and his family.

We had an incredible stay at the Toad Farm guesthouse. House was everything that was promised and more, well equipped, close to the beach, and an ideal location for getting around the whole North Island. Hosts are fantastic. We will be back no question. Thank you very much for your hospitality

The sun room was fantastic, even on a rainy day. Beautiful beaches, an amazing music festival and only 20 minutes from the world class Haida Cultural Centre. We loved it here.

My wife and I would return here in a heartbeat. We just returned from a 11 day stay @ Toad Farm. What wonderful hosts and a super quiet location minutes walk to the beach and twenty minutes or so drive to Queen Charlotte City or Port Clements. You drive up from Crow's Nest Store to the Toad Farm lane. Although you do not have a beachview this is great spot to start exploring Haida Gwaii. Minutes from the Pesuta Wreck Trail or Anvil Trail and the Tlell River. It is spacious guest house with master bedroom with ensuite and another bedroom with two singles. Full kitchen with ample utensils and as well, there is a washer and dryer in the space. We have stayed at a number of cottage, home, apartment rentals etc. and I can't think of any other that rates as high as Toad Farm. We didn't want to leave. If we are fortunate to return to Haida Gwaii, we hope we can stay @ Toad Farm.
