This remote mountain cabin ($175/night) is perched on the edge of a plateau overlooking the entire Nusatsum valley, the Bella Coola River Valley and parts of the Thunder Mountain drainage area AND Saloompt Peak. The 360 degree view is simply magnificent. You are surrounded by mountain tops, flocks of birds, including bald eagles, grizzly bears, black bears and other native animals, trees, shrubs, flowers, mushrooms, all of varied and bewildering species, cascading mountain streams â the wildness of life itself!
comes with full kitchen, washing machine and nature's dryer (clothesline), storage area, bathroom and shower, loft bedroom (double) with dresser, dining area and living area - surrounded by cathedral windows for ultimate viewing. There are 3 fold out cots stored in the upstairs bedroom for extra sleeping. For cool nights, the CSA approved woodstove offers heat when needed, firewood is handy, cut and stored, under cover by the loft. The deck off of the living room looks out onto the Nusatsum Valley.
is a one room apartment (520ft2) with one queen size bed and a comfy couch to sit or sleep on. There are also extra mattresses(for the floor)or you can request the cots from the cabin ahead of time. There is a coffee maker and dishes for simple eating and a small dining area, plus use of the downstairs BBQ. The living area is large with two balconies and dressers for storage. There is no interior washroom,so please use the cabin's. We are currently building a compost toilet for 2016. There are no washing facilities for the loft. Hauling water is the preferred method!! the creek water is fantastic and only a few steps away... The bathroom and laundry facilities will be available to you (in the cabin) if you have rented both of the accomodations with family or friends... The loft IS NOT AVAILABLE as a rental on it's own.
The mountain peak behind is 'Salloompt Peak' and is accessible by trail for those NOT faint of heart.
There is a map to show you the trails on the 75 acre property. It will also show you the trails on the adjoining crown land. You are free to explore the property and the crown land beyond the trails. Please be aware of bear and cougar rules.

The property is completely self sufficient. Hot water is provided by propane as is the stove/oven. Electricity is from the hydro-electric system.

No human touches the water before it reaches you. It is glacier fed from the Thunder Mountain Ranges and from Salloompt Mountain. One stream feeds the microhydro-electric system and the other stream comes directly to the cabin and to the loft. Dip your cup directly in the streams. There is no need for filters here. The water is fantastic and yes - water really does taste like something.

Bella Coola Valley water has been called by some as the 'best water in the world'.

There is no internet access at the cabin. But there IS cell phone service, so please bring your SMARTPHONES, etc.


Late spring and summer is the best time to see bears on the property - they will be feeding on the fresh grasses, clover and into the summer, the wild raspberries and huckleberries. Later in the summer you will not see them as often as they will be in the larger rivers catching salmon (but some will wander back to sleep at night, so continue to be bear aware). Please be extra careful around the local rivers at that time of year.
