Meet the Owners
In addition to running Chateau Norm, Norman is a high school shop teacher and a part-time paramedic, and Lori is the Chief Administrative Officer for the Village of Queen Charlotte. Chateau Norm has been a labour of love, sprinkled liberally with years of renovations. Norm and Lori enjoy sharing what they have come to think of as a grown up summer camp with their guests.
The couple is active in the local community and often volunteer to help out at events. They point out that being multi-vocational is just a way of life on Haida Gwaii. People are willing to rely on one another and this creates a communal atmosphere that is inclusive and fun. "We feel lucky there are so many opportunities for socialization on island."
