A great alternative to cabins/cottages! Located overlooking the Bella Coola estuary. Life on the water with all the comforts of home. Bring your boats/kayaks & simply raft right up. Spend your days fishing, crabbing & exploring the area's local hot springs. Spend your nights feasting on the day's catch while the local seals & sea-lions entertain you.

Thank you for staying on the Float House Inn. During the summer months, Bella Coola is almost guaranteed warm & sunny weather, but as we approach October the weather can be mixed as we get into our rainy season. Many people still like to visit because of the fall salmon runs and bearviewing opportunities. Thanks again.

This Float House Inn was such a unique experience from the well equipped kitchen, lovely patio with colourful flowers on the rooftop to all the personal touches put into the decor of the boat. The warm welcome we received when we arrived was a great start to our stay.

The Float House is unlike any other hotel stay. You are actually staying on a boat! There is lots of room for couple or small family but is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Everything you would need is on board for a comfortable stay. The wifi is spotty but manage

We loved everything about the Float House Inn and would highly recommend it.
We had a blast catching crabs off the dock.
The beds were cozy and the little room up top was perfect for our son.
Kitchen was fully stocked and the herb garden was a great touch!

I think I sent you an inquiry about 10 minutes ago but I had to reenter my password on trip adviser. Could you confirm that you did or did not receive my earlier e-mail. Thank you. Jim Mac Devitt
"Space is limited and its a bit of a hike from the parking, don't pack alot of unnessesary items."
"3 bedrooms very comfortable and cozy. We watched the seals at night time from our bed."
"Not hard to do-only one room!"
