Thank you so much for our visit.
I place Copper Beech House at the top of our near
perfect vacation. I saw angels everywhere. You made
every minute comfortable, charming & exciting.
The food, the guests, the books & art! The feeling
of being in the right place. We'll miss you. Take

person finds even a small space accommodating." -Chinese
Proverb) and has the best view. Bathroom is private, though not en suite,
and has a big claw-foot tub. Robes are provided for guests who need to use
the facilities in the dark of night.

TOP FLOOR of the House
Which we secretly refer to
as the Secret’s Room, takes up the whole top floor
of the house, and Sleeps three ; there is a queen-sized bed
and a single bed (in a separate part of the room – useful
if you have a child travelling with you, or you find yourself
in a domestic dispute). There is a delightfully tiled bathroom
This is formerly the room that Sydney
Harling Smith, the owner-before-David, made over every
year in anticipation of the arrival of “The Secret”,
a mysterious entity who never quite made it as far as
Masset (as far as any of us know).

Chadwick Room (2-3)
overlooks the garden and is a
tribute to the memory of Florence Chadwick. When David
owned an antique shop in Toronto in the 60s, he acquired
a steamer trunk full of her possessions, including her
passport and other personal memorabilia. This room has
been decorated with her adventuresome spirit in mind.
The room has a queen-sized bed, and a private bathroom
down a small flight of stairs.

Harbour Master’s Keep (3)
Sleeps three; it has its own kitchenette and bathroom,
and overlooks the tangled English garden. One double
built in “captain’s
bed” and one twin bed in a separate small room overlooking
the harbour. Guests can sit out under the wisteria and drink
their morning coffee or a sip a glass of homemade elderberry
Pierre and Maggie (the former
Canadian Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau and his wife)
made this room their love nest when they visited Haida
Gwaii, and stayed as David’s guests.

INFORMATION FOR GUESTS
Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. Avoid surprises for
yourself and your intrepid hosts by keeping these considerations
in mind. Check-in time must be confirmed in advance,
so we can be at home to meet you.
Check out time is 11:00 a.m.
If you require an early or late arrival, we will try to accommodate
you. However, it must be pre-arranged. If you arrive earlier
you are more then welcome to drop in, introduce yourself(ves)
and store your luggage.
No smoking in the house otherwise a sadly necessary cleaning
fee of $150 will be charged. But it’s okay to smoke
outside on the decks, or on the beach, or by the propane
tanks on the docks (just kidding.)
Wheelchair accessible. Pet Friendly. Inclusive atmosphere.

CANCELLATION POLICY: Due to our size,
cancellations affect us greatly. Deposit and cancellation
policies are generally less forgiving on Island than
those of hotels or B&B’s in urban areas, as
a last-minute cancellation may mean a significant loss
to our somewhat vulnerable, remote island business, especially
in the high season. (That said we try to be as understanding
as we possibly can be, depending on the circumstances.)
IMPORTANT: We highly recommend that you contact your travel
agent or credit card company regarding trip cancellation
insurance to cover refund of accommodations costs in case
of unforeseen changes to your plans (such as, but not limited
to, delays, strikes, closure of air space, death in family,
MORE THAN 30 DAYS CANCELLATION: no cancellation fee.
14 to 30 DAYS CANCELLATION: you will be charged a $40 cancellation
Please note the cancellation fee is per room, therefore if
you are a group booking, you will be charged $40 per room
LESS THAN 14 DAYS CANCELLATION: We reserve
the right to charge you the full amount for your reservation.
If we are able to rebook your room(s) we will gladly credit
you the amount we are able to recoup minus the $40 cancellation
EARLY CHECKOUT: The
nights you have reserved are guaranteed exclusively for
you. If you decide to leave early we reserve the right
to charge you the full amount for your reservation. If
we are able to rebook your room(s) we will gladly credit
you the amount we are able to recoup minus the $40 cancellation
DELAYED ARRIVAL: No refund of deposit with the exception
of cancellation due to weather (in the event of the ferry
or plane not making it to the Island.) In all other circumstances,
should we be able to rebook all the nights, we will be pleased
to credit you the amount we are able to recoup minus the
$40 cancellation fee.
NO-SHOW OR SAME DAY CANCELLATION: Full night (or nights)
Thank You CBGH Staff
