The Haida House

About the Haida House

The Haida House provides comfortable guest accommodation surrounded by nature - forest, open sky and water. Our front yard faces the serene Tlell River; our backyard borders the rugged ocean shores of Hecate Strait.

The lodge is conveniently located on the east coast of Graham Island near the village of Tlell, halfway between Old Massett in the north and Skidegate in the south. The Haida House is the ideal base from which to enjoy the many adventures, attractions, excursions and historical and cultural sites available on both Graham and Moresby Islands.

The Haida House is committed to providing our guests with first-class service, where attention is given to every detail. We pride ourselves in our welcoming atmosphere where our knowledgeable and friendly staff makes every effort to ensure that your Haida Gwaii experience and your stay at the Haida House is truly unforgettable.

The lodge, built in the 1980’s, was known as the Tlell River House and for years operated as a seasonal bear hunting lodge.
In 1995, the Council of the Haida Nation passed a resolution at their Annual House of Assembly calling for the end of recreational trophy hunting of Black Bears on the Islands. By 2010, the Haida Nation succeeded in retiring the last remaining bear hunting licence and purchased the lodge, renaming it the Haida House at Tllaal. (Tllaal is the traditional Haida spelling of Tlell).

In June of 2012, the Haida House will re-open its doors and welcome visitors from around the world who seek a comfortable base from which to explore the exceptional culture and nature of Haida Gwaii.
