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

6泊しましたが、ChristianeさんとJean-Marcさんの心温かい人柄と笑顔がそのまま出ている素晴らしいB&Bでした。人工的な光がないのでオーロラ鑑賞には最適の場所です。寒くなればすぐに部屋に戻って暖をとれます。無料の手作りクッキー・飲み物(コーヒー・紅茶)がリビングにあります。Christianeさんの朝食/夕食もすごく美味しいので、夜ご飯は予約可能なので是非食べて頂きたいです。Jean-Marcさんと一緒に犬ぞりも初体験させて頂きましたが非常に楽しかったです。ホワイトホースへ行く機会があれば是非利用したいです。 I stayed 6 nights at Bamboo Room from Dec. 27, 2014 to Jan. 2, 2015. Tahkini River Lodge become one of my favorite B&B and I have never stayed such a very cozy B&B! Christiane's cooking is very tasty+beautiful and really enjoyed my first dog-sliding with Jean-Marc, and would love to do it by myself next time. I will... 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

I waited over 65 years to see the Aurora Borealis which I did from the floor to ceiling windows in the dining room. The Suites were Outstanding, Meals Indulgent and Wonderful Hospitality from Christiane, Jean Marc and Eugenie. Take your hiking boots and walk the trails or drive to the great local sights.

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
