Mountain Cabin & Loft with Spectacular Views

John’s fully equipped cabin is “perched” on the edge of a plateau overlooking the Nusatsum Valley & Bella Coola Valley including the Thunder Mountain range.

You have 75 acres of forest to relax in yet town is just 15 min away.

There are 3 fold out cots (if required) for extra sleeping (up to 5). For cool nights, the CSA approved woodstove offers heat when needed, firewood is handy, cut & stored, under cover by the loft. The deck off of the living room looks out onto the Nusatsum Valley.

is a one room apartment (520 square ft) with a queen size bed & very comfortable couch schoolhouse mtn as seen from 'the point'for sleeping. It comes with a kitchen & living area with two balconies.

We provide a coffee maker and dishes for simple eating, a small dining area and the use of the BBQ downstairs. When the nights get cool, the woodstove can be fired up for the evening – cut and stored wood is right underneath the loft. It has two pull out sofas for queen size sleeping, the comfy couch and also additional mattresses for more sleeping area. Cots from the cabin can also be used, but please request them ahead of time.

The property is completely self sufficient. Hot water is provided by propane as is the stove/oven. Electricity is from the hydro-electric system. Our pure mountain water has been called by some as the ‘best water in the world’.road back to Hagensborg

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

johnsbearcroopBear Watching: 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 they will still come back to sleep at night, so continue to be bear aware). Please be extra careful around the local rivers at that time of year.
