I have just returned from 3 nights staying at the Takhini River Lodge where I have to say, I have received the worst customer and one of the most upsetting experiences on a vacation in my life. Having travelled the world and BC mostly the last 5 years it goes without saying I would not encourage anyone to risk themselves... More

Jean-Marc and Christiane were such great hosts from the minute they picked us up from the airport. The lodge was beautiful set in a valley amongst the snowy mountains. The Yukon Art room was well done with the wood vaulted ceilings, stunning views and a very comfortable bed. The extravagant meals Christiane prepared daily were not only delicious but presented...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in late November (Northern Lights Package)and we've been raving about it ever since! I booked the package through their website, and from the first contact Jean-Marc and Christiane were incredibly helpful and gracious. Our trip absolutely exceeded our expectations! The lodge is very comfortable and the surroundings are beautiful. I can... More

There are many words that could describe our trip to the Lodge. Breathtaking, vast, wilderness, nature, stars, lights, laughter, food (the meals were amazing!), crisp morning air, connection, unwind, sleep well, don't want to go home. Thank you for providing such a beautiful retreat to escape to and for making it such a personal and wonderful visit! We will definitely... More

On our road trip to Alaska, we traveled the Alaska Highway, and I doubt you could find a more delightful place near Whitehorse. We knew we wanted a couple of nights in the area given our interest in the Yukon Territory Wildlife Preserve in Miles Canyon. We weren't at all concerned about its distance from town (more than 10 miles),... More

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
