What Past Guests Are Saying
Waterfront living on the Skeena River estuary
Beautifully renovated cabins remind me of a long ago era when BC was a booming coastal fisheries. This old cannery is being turned into a vacation retreat just outside of Prince Rupert. Water access. Tidal boat moorage or short drive to port Edward for boat launching
Cabins were well appointed with nice touches of fresh flowers and clean interior
I recommend this place to future travelers.
I plan to return next season to go fishing.
Brent and Charlena Robinson
We loved the accomodations. The view was breathtaking, the cabin was very clean and neat. The owners were very helpful and kind. The flowers in the yards and small bouquets in the cabin was appreciated and a nice touch. We were there for the fishing and able to come and go as our Captain Mike scheduled.
As the saying goes" Not for the fainthearted" You would definitely want to be interested in Nature, Beauty, Serenity and History:)
North Coast Gem
Our visit to Cassiar Cannery provided a unique experience, combining the rich cultural heritage of the region with an amazing natural setting, with eagles perched on the trees above the cabin and migrating salmon jumping out of the water literally right in front of our door. The most amazing feature of the cabin is the view across the Skeena River estuary; an ever changing panorama of sky, water, and wildlife. The cabins, which used to be the managers houses when the cannery ran, are luxuriously furnished in a maritime theme. The hosts, Justine and Mark, were very friendly and knowledgeable, providing suggestions for several excellent local trips we took with our family. It was fascinating watching the crafting of furniture from driftwood logs by Mark. Highly recommended for a great B.C. North Coast experience.
A beautiful place with inspiring people!
Everyone should come and visit this wonderful little nook in the northwest. Justine and Mark have re-energized this charming old cannery into a place a luxury and comfort. I had to let out a giggle as I settled into my great big bed under a window overlooking the water. Listened to waves lapping up against the shore all night long. The kitchen has everything you might want for and the little cabin is so pleasant that it feels hard to motivate leaving for a lovely walk down the shore at low tide. Justine and Mark are incredibly welcoming and hard-working people and it was inspiring to see the love and passion that they have put into this place- right down to the little touches of tulips growing in parts from the old dock!
Like it says, our family enjoyed living and learning in nature a
This trip was for three nights. It was so good that when we returned home it felt like we had been away for a week. It was a great relaxing time to enjoy the beauty of the North Coast and reflect with our children about the living ocean. In a relaxed atmosphere their curiosity kept growing about the history of the cannery and “old fashion things”. If you want a bright house with big windows that is right on the water this is it.
CB from a big city
Wonderful! Get the city out of our system
I was looking for a fast way to get la city life out of our system. Cassiar Cannery was a perfect choice for us. The home is located in a very reclusive area and there was little opportunity for having too many folks around. We went armed with our Kindles and high hopes of doing very little for 4 days.
My husband and I were not disappointed. The location is right by the river. And the house was recently redone. The owners did a wonderful job of making it comfortable yet maintain its original charm. The big picture window and sunshine were just what we wanted.
We found the owners to be passionate about preserving the natural beauty of their property and they are working hard to restore the area to match their vision. They were wonderful hosts.
If you want action, this is not the place for you. But, if you want to take time out from day to day life to rejuvenate spiritually, then this is a great place to do so.
Hopefully we'll be able to get back there.
peace and silence every sleep
Cassiar is a bit out of the way, but if you don't need to be next to a store or theater, you'll not find a better place to relax. The Inverness Passage is your front yard, and it, along with the changing tides and the variable weather delivers you "literally" a different scene each and every day.
Loving the North Coast!
Deep Rejuvination and lots of Laughter
I love coming to Cassiar Cannery. So far it is my third visit and each time has been excellent. Two times have been in the summer and once in the winter, which is equally as enjoyable but wtih different options for entertainment, activity and relaxation.
The air is super fresh, there is an abundance of wildlife to watch, more movies than you can shake a stick at and really clean water. Life is at a slower pace than the big city so it really gives me a chance to slow down and recuperate, definitely helped by the uber-comfortable beds and million dollar view. I love it up there, as do the other members of my family. We have it on our list of must-visit places every year.
