Artists Point bed & breakfast is nestled on 2.3 acres in the rural community of Hyde Creek near Port McNeill and Telegraph Cove. Our private guest suite overlooks the magnificent Coast Mountain Range with it's snow capped peaks and lush coniferous forest and offers stunning ocean views of Broughton Strait, gateway to the famed Broughton Archipelago and the Great Bear Rainforest.

The ocean is just down the hill and a short 3-minute walk will take you to a nearly private beach where you may chance upon an eagle fishing, a family of Orca's on their way to their rubbing beach, dolphins playing a game of catch-me-if-you-can or seals popping up like curious onlookers.
Because we live so close to nature we are very aware of our impact on our surroundings. Taking care of the environment is important to us and we are continually working toward minimizing our effect on our surroundings and reducing our carbon footprint by investing in sustainable products in our B&B.
