After sending a couple of emails prior to our arrival, we arrived to a surprised Tessa. All I can say is that it do not look like the photo on trip advisor. The house was very clutter & needed a good vac, dust & clean. My Auntie wouldn't even sit down. After 20 minutes we left & went to a... More

What a great stay here with a professional photographer who devoted to serve her guest with patience and care. Tessa spent over half an hour on introducting the house, the city and the places that we probably could see aurora. She is so caring that she even lent her boots to us for chasing aurora at midnight to prevent us... More

The location is perfect to me, a little bit far away from downtown to have more quiet and clam space. The breakfast is awesome. Tessa shared a bunch of information about Yellowknife, which helped us to have unexpected and wonderful experience in this four days trip. The house is cozy and the collections is a must see. We joined aurora... More

I stayed for 4 nights, Tessa's great and considerate. She advised me on how and where to catch the aurora, made sure I had enough clothes and she lent me her gears. She knew I stayed up late at night for aurora so she's never rushed me for my breakfast time. Just about 3-4 minutes walk you'll get on the... More

I stayed in Blue Raven B&B for 3 nights. The house is clean and comfortable. It located in old town, and several spots nearby the house is suitable for aurora viewing. Tessa is nice and helpful, she provided some useful information to me during my stay in YK. More importantly she is a photographer and she provided advice for shooting... More

We loved staying here for 5 nights with the terrific breakfasts, helpful guidance and relaxed atmosphere. Tessa made us feel like guests in her home and gave us lots of wise advice and insight when we asked. She had a map ready and some suggestions for dinner when we arrived. We were within walking distance of several nice restaurants (Dancing... More

We stayed with Tessa for 4 nights. She gave us a quick overview of Yellowknife with a map as soon as we arrived which I found very helpful. She made fabulous breakfasts including accommodating my food allergies. The house is clean, the duvets warm, the common areas are inviting and there's a viewing area down the block on Great Slave...

When I checked in to Blue Raven, I was already at the end of a physically-taxing 3-week long photography trip. As you can imagine, weariness was already starting to set in. But Tessa's charming and cosy Blue Raven was a spirit lifter and served as a perfect home away from home. The rooms are pretty compact but still able to... More

Blue Raven B&B is located in the old town, up hill, from the balcony you can see a little view of the Great Slave Lake. It's very nice to sit in the balcony if it isn't too cold. It's the "aurora season" in September, therefore we made our reservations 3 months prior to our stay but we could only manage... More
