» Your iconic log cabin style guesthouse has been featured on popular TV channels around the world such as National Geographic. What inspired the design and construction concept?
The design concept of Little Wolf Resort combines luxurious elegance and pure natural beauty. It was inspired and predetermined by the natural growth and diversity, as well as by the individual appearance of every tree that was used in its construction. Each one is a rare jewel of the forest, showing natural character and beauty. These characteristic trees were carefully selected and collected over years and finally compiled into a natural artwork. The entrance of the resort features four giant red cedars and a curved arch. These unique beauties developed a twisted growth to be resistant against exposure to strong winds. The mighty, over 1,000-year-old red cedar burl is one of the principal design elements of the hotel.
The interior also showcases elements that were inspired by the wilderness setting of the resort, surrounded by glacial creeks and the churning Skeena River. A white and blue Brazilian Azul granite slab with white quartz veins reflects a spring connected to a white quartz pebble river that runs through the entire main hall of Little Wolf. The original Burgundian medieval stone fireplace from the 11th century gives this area a magical and romantic atmosphere. It emanates warmth from the crackling flames and sheds atmospheric light, serving as a focal gathering point. A huge forked cedar tree is supporting the staircase and giant flared beams as well as pleated, mighty posts in the main hall, giving the feeling of walking through an ancient old growth rainforest.
