At the request of the Council of the Haida Nation (@chn_haidanation) Haida Gwaii remains closed to all non-essential travel. Copper Beech House will therefore not be taking any off-island reservations for the remainder of 2021, with the exception of essential workers and those in need of isolation. We look forward to welcoming all other visitors when the time is right.

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.  Read a full history of the house and its 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
