The Lodge Story

A Little Bit of History

Believed to have been built around 1895 the original building stood as a two room cedar cabin, typical of the Norwegian houses in the area. Through the early 1900's travellers making the long 5-7 day journey to Williams Lake could find a restful place.


After a long hiatus the doors reopened in 1995. With the developing tourism industry two generations of the Koroluk family transformed the walls and exterior into a standout building in the Bella Coola Valley to house their guiding company and guests.

 As current owners The Lansdowne Family (Clark, Shannon, Ellis, Saylor and Colt)  bring with them over 40 years of combined experience in the tourism industry and look forward to upholding Bella Coola Mountain Lodge's strong tradition and history of providing comfortable accommodation in Bella Coola and leave you with a memorable experience.
