Copper Beech House   Haida Gwaii

About Us


For a personable and memorable experience of Haida Gwaii, come and stay in this heritage house “dripping with character” overlooking the harbour in Masset.  The Copper Beech House is owned and managed by the writer, Susan Musgrave and her husband, Stephen Reid.  Read a full history of the house and it’s various lives here.

TAKE COMFORT: We offer fresh, local food, in season, and simple pleasures, too: a crab or chanterelle omelette, homemade scones and jam.

REJUVENATE: Spend a day beachcombing, wandering along a deer trail through the old growth, birding, food gathering…

TREAT YOURSELF: Unwind. Sip a good cup of tea, drift away in a book. Watch the tide roll out, roll in. Dream.

“The possible’s slow fuse is lit by the imagination.” Emily Dickinson
