“Undeniably the most unique stay in northern BC”
Reviewed 25 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Cassiar Cannery is truly and undeniably a very unique lodging. My family and I are very adventurous people and are always looking for the most unique places to stay and Cassiar fit the bill exceedingly well. It is a million dollar view, for less than the hotels in Prince Rupert and in Rupert, you get a very boring stay in a very boring building. We loved everything about Cassiar and we will stay there again. The Steelhead house where we stayed was very nicely appointed and has beautiful first nations framed art that I would love in my home. The large handmade cedar table was a superb added touch for our large family dinner. My girls loved flipping rocks looking for creatures at low tide and playing with Kuma,Betty and Veronica the very docile, gentle dogs. I appreciated the gated entrance which gives your stay that extra feeling of privilege as this is your home while you are at Cassiar. The scenery is exceptional and so nice to be away from the major centre of Prince Rupert. I prefer giving my hard earned cash to a family operation and Cassiar is a family operation.
I am very excited about the VIA rail stop that is possible to organize and that maybe how we get there on our next trip from Edmonton. Memories are not made in the chain hotels. Memories are made when you take and adventure from the norm.
look no further, a million dollar view for pennies per night.

Our second go at this fabulously private getaway and more yet to come ! Such a wonderful space for relaxed sitting and watching of the world going by as the tide gently ebbs and flows beneath the deck. Truly at the end of the road with only the odd train passing by. Great place to practice your "porching", weather permitting enjoy a beverage of choice and get your tan on OR if the weather isn't cooperating, relax behind the glass and still absorb it all in while dry and delightfully warm. Everything provided, only had to bring our own grub and tonic :) we loved every minute of our stay in the Sockeye house with Mark & Justine 's finishing touches. Absolutely recommend the place and the people . Thank you Mark, Justine & Nicholas (oh, and not to forget Betty, Veronica and Kumho )

“Ecology Week”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

I had the privilege of attending the first Ecology Week run at Cassiar Cannery this year. It wasn't a hard sell: I love the beautiful north coast, I love wildlife and bird viewing, I love identifying wild plants ... and I love great food, comfortable surroundings and stimulating company and information.
The course delivered on all counts.
The schedule was action-packed, and included plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with nature. I saw herons fishing for eels from my living room window, I watched grizzlies munching on grass from the comfort of a large catamaran, I saw fascinating, wriggly critters (which I had no idea were living in the mud flats) under a microscope. I was impressed with the caliber of the instructors and lecturers, nearly all of whom were clearly expert in their respective fields. Beyond their expertise and preparedness - these lecturers were personable and entertaining.
One wonders, when one is preparing to share living quarters (and every meal in the lovingly restored general store dining hall) with new acquaintances including the hosts and instructors, how that will go down. Will conversation lag? Will you grow tired of each other's company after a week?
No, it just keeps getting better. You forge friendships. You learn from the other salt-of-the-earth types drawn to this kind of experience. And the science involved in the learning is completely non-threatening.
Justine and her family are natural hosts: they are flexible and generous, and their family tradition steeped in years' past experience in the restaurant business shows in the quality (and quantity !) of delicious meals. No detail was overlooked on the many excursions and it was clear a great deal of planning had gone into the selection of partners for transportation and adventure.
Cassiar Cannery itself is a beautiful, other-worldly place at the end of the road. It's really quite accessible but feels removed, sitting on a tidal river channel surrounded by forested mountains. There are two things to be aware of: dogs and trains. There are three charming resident dogs who greet visitors, but there is nothing to fear from them but being bowled over with love. And the trains - every few hours one is reminded there is an outside world by the very nearby passage of container trains. You get used to it quickly - but bring earplugs for night-time if you're a light sleeper. Otherwise, watch the train show then sigh and smile and remember you're here.

Garlicgurl! Thank you for leaving such a wonderfully detailed review of Cassiar Cannery's inaugural Ecology Week! Eight days of fun learning about the natural world by land, sea and air was a treat to put together and experience! We feel very fortunate that you took a chance to attend the first program and so enjoyed hosting this wonderful group of keen minds and interested people! We are working hard on Ecology Week 2017 and I know all the instructors are looking forward to another great program. Thanks for coming! Justine

“Cassiar Is Heaven”
Reviewed 10 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Cassiar Cannery is one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. My wife and I spent a week. that felt far too short, in this beautiful spot. The cabins are all original to the cannery, but updated. They are incredibly comfortable and you feel like you are staying in a five star hotel. The owners Justine and Mark were super friendly and helpful, and their dog Kuma was the first to eagerly welcome us to the area, and spent a lot of time snuggling with us as we watched the tide move in and out.

The area surrounding Cassiar is even more amazing. The northern temperate rainforest was just outside our door. Moments from Cassiar you can find waterfalls, huge ceaders and spruce trees, and many good hiking trails. And of course, there is the marine world. Just sitting on the cabin's deck watching the tide move in and out was amazing. Making this even better was watching seals, otters, herons, and other wildlife pass through Inverness Passage was amazing!

While you are up here make sure you charter a tout to get out to sea, and up the Skeena River to see the sights. Or hire a fishing carter, you will not be disappointed!

Cassiar Cannery is an amazing spot, and the perfect location for a romantic get away, to hide out from the world to rest and recover, or as a base to explore the many amazing outdoor activities the area has to offer.

Regardless of what you are looking for Cassiar will more than meet your expectations.

“Northern Shangri-La!”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

For anyone seeking a truly northern experience, this has to be it!
The Cassiar Cannery is an idyllic, pristine and truly memorable place and I hope to return there some time and introduce it to more friends and family.
It has been a labour of love for Justine and Mark over the past 12 years and they have turned an old, dilapidated cannery into a one-of-a-kind northern experience.
The self-catering cabins are very comfortable and cosy and kitted out with all modern conveniences and the views from them are amazing.
Cassiar Cannery is situated on a beautiful, secluded inlet where the silence is all around you and only broken occasionally by the trains passing very close by and during the night one can hear the wolves howling in the distance.
If you are looking for somewhere to relax and escape from your busy daily life, then this has to be the place.
