Exquisite craftsman cottage handbuilt of yellow and red island cedar, furnished with art and antiques, on an acre+. Yellow cedar floors, high beam ceilings, Dutch doors. You’ll love our home because of cosiness, privacy, and roar of the surf. We are just 30 m from the high tide mark-- a minute's walk over soft dunes is our 60 mile sandy beach changing every tide-- greatest beachcombing ever! Our house is best for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets), but children are welcome.

Words cannot describe the sheer beauty of the beach house and it's surroundings. Do your soul a favor and visit this place. You will want to stay longer I guarantee it.

Chipper's place was great. Located in Massett set on a beautiful beac, this was the perfect location for us. The beach house is also close to Tow Hill, several scenic heights, a delishious bakery and the airport if you fly into Haida Gwaii. Check in / check out was a breeze and very flexible which was great for us as we were at the mercy of the ferry schedule. The cabin itself is beautiful, clean and has everything one could need. When we were there we were unable to find a crab pot for cooking. Within the hour one was dropped off for us. Amazing service!! All in all an amazing trip in an amazing place.

Response from Chipper:
Thank you Mike, it warms the cockles of my heart to read your appreciation. As you can imagine it is very labor intensive and costly to maintain a wooden house right on the beach---like a ship! Especially on Haida Gwaii where services are few and far between. It is great to be appreciated. Please do visit again!
