We came from Scotland to visit friends in Whitehorse in Feb 2014. One thing on the Yukon list was aurora so we all decided to book at Sundog for two nights. We stayed in Wolf Den which was cosy and well equipped. The highlight was watching stupendous aurora from the hot tub. Absolutely awesome. Good service and great facility. Top... More

We loved the lake and the cottages were fantastic! It is a little piece of heaven. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat from the city, this is it. And an added bonus- the lake is unbelievable for fishing.

My sisters encouraged me to participate in a weekend that I had no intentions of enjoying. Held at The SunDog Retreat, I was charmed by the experience. The cabins are joined, yet each one holds its own as an independant unit. Every modern convenience is available for use in the kitchen. The loft was more spacious than the website's pictures... More

We found Sundog on the internet, and it looked like the perfect place to spend our first year wedding anniversary. I wish I never had to leave, not only was it relaxing, it was beautiful, and had everything you could possibly want in a romantic getaway. Ted and Mary both went out of their ways to make us feel welcome,... More

I have stayed at many resorts around the world, cottages, and even have a cottage outside of Parry Sound..(little lake Mckellar).. However this one had a certain aura of romance. MAGIC! My girlfriend and i, took our relationship to a new level of romance during our stay her.. The decor was rustic with a real touch of class.. If you... More

Thank you so much for making our 1st anniversary such a wonderful experience! We had such a great time relaxing and enjoying the Retreat and all its amenities. Over the weekend we kept busy swimming, hiking and canoeing. The hot tub was very appreciated and capped off our everyday. Your hospitality and cottages are definitely 5 Star. I had such... More

From the moment you turn down Sundog Rd., it is apparent that you are in for a unique adventure. The road twists and winds until you arrive at a spacious four suite complex. Each suite has its own character and flair. Having just been married, my wife and I had the absolute pleasure of spending an entire week in the... More

After driving over 1,000 miles and anticipating a "cottage" as stated in the advertisement I was shocked to find one huge building divided into sections. The place was hot, dark and very unappealing. The walk down to the water was steep and dangerous. One of the sections had matresses on the floor and a toilet in the room without walls... More

Sorry to hear your concerns. You had asked to cram extra people into the two cottages you rented (over our recommended amount). I went out of my way to put a mattress down on the floor for the kids to sleep on. I was quite surprised you are complaining over us bending the rules for your group??? Our cottages are... More

SunDog Retreat is a real gift – a breathtaking escape in nature to soothe tired minds, bodies, and souls. We just experienced it in the heat of summer with its lush vegetation, wild flowers, & herbs, and its pristine spring fed lake that energized and cooled our bodies. We have stayed at SunDog in the spring and in the winter... More

We were very disappointed by Sundog upon arrival at the resort. It was not at all what we expected, nor what was represented to us via e-mail and the website. This is a not a resort for families with small children. There was no beach at all! There is a public one ten minutes away, but who wants to drive... More

So sorry to hear of your disappointment. I'd love to address your concerns. We have had hundreds of families of all ages stay at our resort who have had the time of their lives. I can't understand why you wouldn't think this is a family resort. We have a beautiful lake front with a sandy entrance into the water which... More
