Friendly and affordable, clean and simple accommodation that provides convenient access to scenic adventures in old growth Cedar Forest, the North Bentinck Arm, the Coast Mountains & Tweedsmuir Park.
Set in downtown Bella Coola near the Bella Coola River & Estuary, the Cumbrian Inn is a friendly & affordable hotel with clean rooms and basic amenities. We offer visitors to the Bella Coola Valley the ability to optimize their experience of unmatched natural beauty in territory that has been home to the Nuxalk Nation for more than 10,000 years.
Our guests can explore the area’s rich history through interpretive guides from the Nuxalk Nation, dine on fresh crabs, wild mushrooms & hand-picked fiddleheads, and meet the unique local characters who live in our community. There are many available paths and trails through ancient cedar forests to peaceful glades and remote waterfalls, with many great sights such as views of bears and eagles in untamed habitats. Several galleries showcase and celebrate paintings & carvings by local artists. The adventurous choose to explore the Dean Channel and Tweedsmuir Park, access the coastal mountains by helicopter, and hire fishing boats to catch Tyee salmon.
The Inn’s central location enables guests to easily walk to any of Bella Coola’s restaurants, shops, galleries and parks. Welcome to the Great Bear Rainforest!
