The float house is a beautifully finished floating home moored at the iconic Queen Charlotte docks. This unique local landmark affords stunning views of the sun rising over the sea and setting behind the mountains. The perfect base to launch your Haida Gwaii adventure. Staying in the float-house is a truly unique experience. You will be connected to the pulse of local life through the rise and fall of each tide as fisherman and weary sea-folk go about their business all around you. A birder's paradise - countless different species of seabirds bob right past the west facing window while eagles watch eagerly from the masts above.

The Float-House is a peaceful, safe, funky place to call home base while exploring Haida Gwaii. We had a great time, marvelled at the changing light over the harbour in the morning and evening, and the sights and sounds of a working marina.

The newly installed wood-stove ensures a warm and comfortable setting on stormy nights; and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to cook up your catch of the day. Water from the taps comes direct from the town and is good to drink. The float house sleeps 4 in beds (1 queen and 1 pull out double), but more can squeeze in if you bring mats and bags (max 8). We are proudly LGBTQ friendly.

The float house is all yours and conveniently located within walking distance of all the shops in town. Free parking is available at the causeway next to the docks.

Price per night: $160, with a 2-night stay minimum.
