My husband and I are Yellowknife locals. We booked this B&B because the hotel we were going to book did not have any vacancies for our wedding night. One of the hotel employees recommended this B&B for our wedding night and it did not disappoint. From the moment I called to reserve the room I was very impressed with the... More

We stayed there for two nights while waiting for our flight to depart. The places is beautifully and carefully decorated to make it cozy and welcoming.

We really enjoyed our stay in Yellowknife. As Australians, we wanted to experience a Northern winter, but in Yellowknife we experienced something special - friendship and community spirit. Faith is genuinely friendly, caring and helpful, which makes all the difference to your stay. We travel for quite a few months of the year all over the world, and are not... More

Embleton is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed. There was a total of 8 in our group and we booked the suite rooms 4 5 6 7 at Apartment B. And since there were only 4 rooms, we had the apartment to ourselves which gave us lots of privacy. I called up Faith when we reached Yellowknife... More

The Embleton house is truly home away from home. We were a group of friends that first stayed at the suites and subsequently moved to the private bedrooms in section A of the house. The suites were amazing to say the least; more cozy and personal than any hotels. The house is conveniently located 2 min walk from Brunos pizza,... More

Faith Embelton and her husband run a great B&B as a base to see the Northern Lights, and try out dog team driving. I went in February, and despite the temperature (-50) it was a wonderful experience. The Embleton's use their re-modeled basement with 4 rooms with a fully equipped and fully stocked kitchen for breakfast, and any other meals.... More

This bed and breakfast is a comfortable and clean alternative to the revolving door atmosphere of a hotel. The people who own and manage it really make you feel like a part of their family. I have had my share of stays in hostels, shared and private suites and the quality from Embleton is exceptional. House rules are not uncommon... More

Made reservation and tried to cancel same day...but was told my credit card will be charged for full three day stay. :( Apparently, I needed 72 hours notice to cancel...no chance considering I booked and tried to cancel same day. Really disappointed.

Just saw this review this Am and "Yes", we have a 72 hour cancellation policy. Ms. Landry made the reservation and we honored it turning other potential customers away for the time she reserved. When she cancelled lucky for her that evening First Air had a cancelled flight and rented the two suites and a private bedroom. Ms. Landry had... More

I was staying there around getting medical treatment, just diagnosed with cancer.
