We're a family of 3 and stayed there for almost 1 week.
We were stunned by the tasteful way that Tessa decorated her house, with souvenirs and arts collected in her entire life living among the Northern community. Discovering all the stories and the culture behind her souvenirs was amazing and added something of magic to our trip, it was a plus that we would never imagine.
Tessa is the sweetest hostess we’ve met ever. She knows the region very well and gave us great tips about things to do, specially places to see the aurora less than 3 minutes away.
The rooms are small but have very confortable beds. From the porch you have a wonderful view of the bay, and it’s also possible to see auroras from there, despite a little light pollution. It is also great for sunsets views.
This B&B is located in the old town about 20 minutes walking from downtown, which was perfect to us for the tranquility and for the nearness of the Great Slave Lake.
If necessary, there’s a bus line serving to downtown.
There’s a restriction for use of water not only in this B&B, but the whole old town due to the water distribution system, so guests are reminded to take short showers, which we did accordingly as it was not a big deal for us.
The delicious breakfast is prepared by Tessa at the time scheduled by us previously, and it’s served in nice porcelain made by herself. When it was necessary to have breakfast later than scheduled, we just had to advise her the night before.
All her attention to guests and the ambiance made us feel at home.
The price was very reasonable, not different of what we use to pay in other cities. I would not only recommend, but also come back with my family and stay longer.
