We recently stayed at Takhini River Lodge for 3 nights and had a wonderful time there. Jean Marc had dealt with us quite a bit over the net prior to us coming and welcomed us at the airport with open arms. Felt right at home straight away. Jean marc and Christiane are the most wonderful inviting couple with their daughter... More

We spent four nights at the Takhini River Lodge and could not have been happier. Christiane and her husband Jean-Marc were warm, friendly, and gracious hosts/owners. The lodge itself is beautiful, clean and very comfortable with fabulous views of the Yukon countryside. We had beautiful views of the snow covered landscape as well as spectacular viewing of the night skies... More

Can't say enough about this beautiful place. The lodge was designed by Christiane and Jean Marc and you can feel the personal touch in their cozy lodge. You feel like you're staying with friends and they go out of their way to keep you comfortable and welcomed. We were unable to see the Northern lights due to weather but the... More

We stayed three nights at the Takhini River Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed it. Christiane and Jean-Marc, our hosts and owners, were there to greet us and give us a warm welcome when we arrived and were always around trying to make our stay as perfect as possible. The lodge is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The lounge and dining room have... More

What a beautiful lodge nestled in the countryside outside Whitehorse...even designed by the owner, Christiane, with help from her husband, Jean-Marc. Just 4 large rooms, all tastefully appointed, and the living areas are expansive with massive windows to allow the viewing of the Northern Lights in comfort. What a pity the weather was not kind to us. Do take the... More

We loved this place. Christiane made us feel so welcome and her superb cuisine was a real treat to look forward to at breakfast and in the evenings. Christiane and Jean Marc have made the lodge a perfect place to use as a base to explore the area, and we were very interested to meet their team of huskies next... More

We spent 3 nights at Takhini River Lodge and really enjoyed it. Can't think of anything else that could make the stay better. The included breakfast was delicious, to say nothing of the dinner that Christiane cooked for us one evening. We hope to visit again in the winter season sometime as it's a beautiful lodge in a beautiful location... More

Takhini River Lodge is situated about 4 miles down a gravel road, takes about half an hour if driven slowly like me. What can I say, it's a beautiful place in an incredible location, if you are looking for peace and quiet with genuine hospitality then look no further. I was met by Christiane at the door who showed me... More

Watching the northern lights has been on my bucket list for some time now. I have chosen the Takhini River Lodge because of the excellent location in a "dark sky" area. Stayed for one week and my holidays at the lodge were one of the best I ever had. The owners are very friendly and helpful people, food was superb... More

Dear Peter, You had perfect crystal clear skies every nights. I am sure the members of your astronomy club will be amazed by your beautiful Northern lights pictures and the hundreds ans hundreds of pictures you took of all the constellations which are different of those in the South sky. Thanks for the wonderful review. Best regards Jean-Marc & Christiane More

We visited last year, but alas, no Northern Lights for us, so we came back this year, and saw them. Nothing had changed since last year, except that I had improved my French. Christiane was gracious enough to kindly correct my elementary French grammar. Christiane et Jean-Marc sont des hôtes charmants, et rein n'est de trop. We took advantage of... More

Dear Kathryn and Grahame, Thank you very much for reviewing Takhini River Lodge for the second time in such beautiful way. I am sure that next time you will come your French will be excellent. Dogsledding is an amazing adventure and can be very addictive. When I did my first trip seven years ago, I had no idea that shortly... More
