Meet Merlin Naylor

Merlin Naylor is the owner of Uproot Guest House

Merlin is inspired by Haida Gwaii and his unique business, Uproot Guest House, was built upon Haida Gwaii’s vast resource of up-cycled and found natural materials. Merlin salvaged things that were weather-worn or old and incorporated them into his Uproot Guest House. “Becoming an entrepreneur was self-motivating,” said Merlin, “and provided me with an opportunity to fill a niche for natural salvage and design.” The construction of his artistic accommodation was an adventure for Merlin. He liked being able to design and build a business that now financially enables his other interests and hobbies.

Merlin loves Haida Gwaii for all the wonders the land has to offer. “What I enjoy most about Masset is the unlimited access to the wild,” said Merlin. He enjoys adventuring throughout Haida Gwaii and foraging for a delicious addition to his next meal. It’s not only the nature that Merlin enjoys, he also appreciates the cool small businesses in Masset such as Ground Gallery & Coffee House.

Artistic. Original. Classy.
