I stayed in one of the cabins here just for an overnight as I was heading up North to Dawson. I had just been staying in a basic but very nice cabin down near Haines Junction so Sundogs was a real treat. Flushing loos, shower, fully fitted kitchenette and huge comfortable beds. The decor was extremely stylish with a Welcome... More

Stayed for one night on our way to Alaska (May 14, 2014), then for two nights on the return trip (May 28-29, 2014). Scenic ... quiet ... restorative. We traveled with our dog and he appreciated all the free space. Took a 30 minute walk to Yukon River - outstanding. Location is not in the Whitehorse hubbub, but an easy... More

We totally enjoyed our one night... wish it could have been longer! Great place! Would highly recommend the cabins to anyone who is just passing thru (as we were) or wanting to stay and relax. It was wonderful.

out of town about 30 min drive but on great highways and when you get there, you are IN the Yukon, not a city. Our cabin was lovely and had everything we needed. The circular driveway was a nice touch. We loved the little "care" basket - fabulous coffee and nice to have some apples to munch. Every item on... More

Our first stay at Sundog Retreat will not be our last! The hosts were gracious, the cabin was very clean, and it was peaceful. While it is a little drive outside of Whitehorse, it was perfect for us. We will definitely visit again!

My sister and I have watching the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) on our bucket list, so when she came to visit me back in December 2013, I planned a 3-day trip in January 2014 to Whitehorse, Yukon. This trip was almost 5 months ago, but we were SO impressed by our experience that even now I felt the need to... More

Extremely nice, cozy & clean cabins, spacious and surprisingly modern in decor. A lovely home away from home. The best Whitehorse has to offer. The owner was very nice and hospitable. There's a sauna on the premises as well. My family lived it.

Sundog is perfect for many reasons. The land is beautiful and the hosts are awesome. This is a very well-kept property, and each cabin has everything you need. If you are going to see the northern lights, the view at Sundog is perfect as it's away from the city lights, and has 2 viewing cabins that face the north. Andrew... More

Right from being picked up at the airport to being dropped off again a week later we were made to feel incredibly welcome and all our needs were catered for. Heather and Andrew are the perfect hosts, friendly, helpful and informative without being in your face. We stayed in Fuzzy Crocus. I was impressed how toasty warm it was given... More
