In the perfect location, downtown Whitehorse, this house is comfy with lots of privacy and comfort. Not only do you have a room, but you have a livingroom and kitchen in the house originally build for the real Sam McGee of Klondike Gold Rush fame. This certainly beats a standard hotel room. The owner is personable, helpful and kind.

We stayed here before (preparing) and after (cleaning up) from a canoe trip. It was a great place to stay. Bernie and Pam were very welcoming and made us feel at home. It is very central and the house and garden itself are a joy to be in. Pam makes the garden feel like an oasis where you can rest... More

Bernie, Pam and dogs Eddie and Sophie were the perfect hosts at the Historic Guest House. Great location close to town centre. Eddie (golden retriever) gave me a guided tour of the local area, took me the short walk to the grocery store for supplies and even stayed up to watch the midnight sun with me! I stayed in the...

Stayed 5-9 Jun 13 in one of the upstairs room. Very cool guest house tied to the historical/legendary Sam McGee. The hosts Bernie and Pam did a great job. Charming, comfortable, clean and full of friendly people and canines. Close walking distance to amenities, bars, restaurants, shopping areas, museums, educational/cultural centre.. Whitehorse is not a cheap town. The kitchen and... More

My daughter from Alaska and myself ferried and drove from Juneau, and stayed in this Historical Guest House, built by the legendary Sam McGee in 1907. We didn't realize Bernie and Pam stayed in an adjacent house, but we finally found them. Bernie came right over and gave us a tour, and even started the wood stove for us! We... More

This was our first stop in the Yukon in early September. We took this B&B as our first choice was fully booked. It is an old house that has been raised to add a basement suite and we stayed in this suite. It was extremely spacious with an open floor plan including a kitchen. Breakfast was self-serve with cereals, bread,... More

We swung into Whitehorse with no clue of where to stay. We tend to be budget travelers (ie. CHEAP) and Whitehorse doesn't cater to our type! We checked three hotels and even the two hostels but they were either full or way over-priced in our opinion. We passed the Historical Guest House and stopped to inquire. Yes! They had a... More

We started out our trip in the guest house built in 1907. When you enter there are flowers everywhere. We met Bernie and Pam who run the house very friendly. We requested the basement, it had 2 queen beds a complete kitchen with your own bathroom. The upstairs was beautiful with old furniture, living room complete kitcken and 2 bedrooms... More

Our hosts at the Historical B&B were extremely welcoming and helpful. They went out of their way for us. The B&B is within easy walking distance to everything in Whitehorse, and we could use the bikes if we wanted to go further afield. It was lovely to be able to use the kitchen and prepare our own meals and be... More

Great location, we felt at home, we are going back this summer for four more days before and after a river trip. Very old house with all that come with it, creaks, dust, charm, comfort and a feeling of history. Green room is very large. We stayed in rose last year and it was fine for us too. Great location...
