Very comfortable house with top notch bedroom accommodation and bathroom with bath and shower. Charming French owners where Christina will cook a delicious dinner if ordered the day before. Excellent breakfast with fresh fruit eggs etc. First Class. Highly recommend. Owners live in adjacent house together with their huskies! We were there in summer but they specialise in northern lights... More

Just completed a 3 night stay at the River Lodge. Christiane and Jean Marc were perfect hosts . Helpful, friendly and never overbearing. Our rooms were supremely comfortable and the setting superb. You must stay here when visiting Whitehorse.

Gorgeous property, gracious hospitality, wonderful food and a complete rest for us! We celebrated our 45th Anniversary with the incredible Inn Keepers who made our stay most memorable from beginning to end! Loved hearing about the life of a Musher and meeting all the dogs. Such a special place as our home base for 4 glorious days in the Yukon.

This wonderful little gem of a place is located about a half hours drive out of Whitehorse. Situated in a break in the forest the accommodation reminded us of a chalet in the swiss alps. Clean bright and airy the lodge was tastefully furnished, clean and very well appointed. Christiane made us so welcome and provided excellent evening meals (pre-booked0... More

we stayed 2 nights and because we were the only guests we got thoroughly spoilt. Good food and excellent accommodation. Our hosts were very helpful about local attractions and places to visit. Overall we received a very warm welcome.

Let's start with the food: fantastic! Every evening promptly at 7 pm you sit down to an exquisite french dinner prepared by Christiane (with dietary restrictions taken into account if need be). The menu changes each night. For the nights we were there we had bison steaks, salmon, chicken breasts stuffed with fresh mushrooms, and all delicious. And, of course,... More

My mother, sister and I stayed for 4 nights and had the best time. The lodge was better than described and our hosts were wonderful. Our rooms (Trappeur and Bamboo) were great and Nelly kept them clean and well stocked. The breakfasts and dinners that Christiane provided were fantastic! Jean-Marc's photo coaching was extremely helpful. I couldn't have gotten pictures... More

In January 2015 my family travelled to the Yukon for an adventure. We stayed at the wonderful takhini river lodge and had a wonderful time. It is a beautiful lodge with 4 beautifully appointed and themed rooms and cosy lounge dining areas from which to watch out for the northern lights. The spectacular northern view makes sure that you won't... More

We really enjoyed our four nights at the Takhini River Lodge. The package included snowmobiling and dog-sledding, and was to have included ice-fishing but it wasn't cold enough. Instead, we snow-shoed a *lot*! They supplied the snow-shoes and Jean-Marc set us a snow-mobile track to go up the mountain overlooking the Lodge. Absolutely wonderful. Also wonderful (exquisite even!!!) was the... More

My wife and I booked in for 4 days in the start of December in the Aurora room. The Takhini River Lodge is an elegant two story building with cathedral ceilings located in what is a winter wonderland of pine trees, snow and hoar frost. It is run by a french couple, Jean-Marc who trains and races dog sleds and... More
