    This is a one-of-a kind experience: two private floating homes at anchor in gorgeous Yellowknife Bay, surrounded by water, with perfect views of the Yellowknife houseboat community. These ECO, off grid floating homes are premium-built residences with all the amenities, including hot running water, a full-size bathroom with a tub and shower and fully functional and modern kitchens with propane appliances. In summer months, you are provided with a canoe to get to and from the houseboats with or we can ferry you over with our power boat in poor weather conditions. During the winter, you can drive right up and park beside our floating homes on well over a meter of ice! Adventure tours offered during Yellowknife's long summer days include fishing and boat tours, camping and hiking. Lod... more

Fantastic location for exploring Yellowknife in the winter. The accomodation was superb with lots of windows to look out on Yellowknife, other house boats, watch ski planes going over head, the Aurora and so much more. Dan not only cooked up an incredible breakfast but shared his enthusiasm for the north and Yellowknife in particular. This is an unique experience... more
