in their "Weekenders" article written By Jeff Topham.
"You could camp out in one of the Chief’s cliff-hanger
suites – a tethered tent suspended high above the funky main street of
Cleveland Avenue, on a wind-whipped rock face. But for a more restful
weekender, try climbing into one of the three luxurious rooms at
Nu-Salya B&B Chalet. Perched hillside in the Garibaldi Highlands,
Nu-Salya is the dream home of Bill McComish (Belfast builder,
photographer, first-class raconteur) and wife Sue (emergency room nurse,
killer cook). The word Nu-Salya is Coast Salish for "my
vision," and the B&B’s views of Howe Sound and the Tantalus
Range alone are enough to rejuvenate weary adventurers. But it doesn’t
hurt to also have massive, comfy beds, jacuzzi baths, an outdoor hot
tub, a comprehensive collection of First Nations art, a 12-metre-high
rock fireplace (not for climbing) and a baby grand piano (in case Oscar
Peterson decides to check in for some kite-boarding)."

April 2007.....LETTER FROM CANADA by
Gundra Kucy-Travel Writer Bahrain Traveler
"But when such grandeur of nature beckons, then even a delicious breakfast spread at one of Canada’s very few five-star B&B accommodations could not keep us any longer indoors. We were anxious to experience for ourselves what we had heard the evening before from a Swiss couple, sitting together in front of a soaring wood burning, 40 foot high, river-rock fireplace, sharing with other guests our first day’s adventure of eagle-spotting."
"Dear Bill & Sue,
Thank you for a fabulous stay at Nu-Salya! You
have truly a magical property -- and the personalities to match. We can
understand why guests come back over and over! Its going to be a
pleasure to recommend you as THE place to stay in Squamish."
