“Winter at Its Best” is the perfect moniker for this vacation! Over the Christmas holidays, I began researching places from which I could achieve my bucket list goal of seeing the Northern Lights. Right from the beginning, the Northern Lights Resort and Spa stood out for their quick and professional email responses to my many queries for information. Not that... More

Wolfgang and Renate are the quintessential hosts you would always dream of sharing your holiday experiences with. They both demonstrate the unique ability to build instant rapport with their kind, giving, professional, humorous and knowledgable nature. The moment my partner and I stepped off the plane Wolfgang was there, welcoming us to Whitehorse and provided us with everything we needed... More

Everything at the Northern Lights Resort and spa is first class! Wolfgang and Renate were welcoming and did everything they could to make my visit as good as possible. Renate even woke us all up at 2am to see "The lights"! The food was wonderful too - all home made and very special - a special place in all ways.

Everything went perfectly on our 4 day/3 night pkg., from the pick up at the airport to the return. The cabins were close to the lodge, very cute, clean, warm, bright and roomy with a good kitchenette, comfy beds, wifi and satellite t.v. The owners/hosts were energetic, fun and very accommodating, anticipating every need, fellow guests friendly and enthusiastic, meals... More

Spent two nights here to check out the area and just want to reiterate that we totally agree with the other reviews on this site. The hosts - Wolfgang and Renate - were friendly from the second we arrived, and perfect hosts - without being "too much". They got the balance just right. Enjoyed hunting moose with the binoculars over... More

We made the excellent decision to stay at this B&B to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The hosts, Wolfgang and Renate know the meaning of the word hospitality. They were very responsive to our email inquiries and helpful in sharing information on things to do in Whitehorse. Our log cabin was clean and cozy equipped with a small kitchenette and a... More
