No words can describe my experience at this extraordinarily
unique place on a uniquely extraordinary Island. When
I returned home, after a mere 4 days, a co-worker saw
me and said, “what have done? You look absolutely
wonderful, glowing.” I told her, that what I did,
was go to Haida Gwaii and Copper Beech House.
I was on a business trip, but it felt like a vacation.
Julia, a lovely generous spirit who manages the CBH met
us at the airport in Masset and guided us with ease and
grace throughout the 4 days we stayed. She went above
and beyond, always with a smile, making delish breakfasts
(granola, cereal, home made apple rhubarb cobbler, yogurt,
tea, coffee, juice, stewed apricots) and ensuring that
in such a short time, we imbibed the quintessential Haida
Each room is unique. I stayed in the Chadwick
Room, on the main floor next to the kitchen
and living room. Wonderful luxurious bedding, towels.
The bathroom was downstairs, just for me, but I didn’t
mind that it wasn’t ensuite it was cool to make
my way down the quirky stairs, again decorated with unique
pieces, ie an antique sewing box of thimbles, spools
and threads. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t
an old lady victorian ‘precious’ place. It
is funky cool.
Copper Beech House is truly the place to be.
