My wife and I stayed at the Blue Raven for 6 nights. The place was warm and cozy, and it made us feel just like home. It has a nice fireplace where you can sit by to keep warm while chatting with Tessa and the other guests. Blue Raven is only a stone’s throw from the Great Slave Lake, where we’ve seen one of the most beautiful aurora displays during our stay. Walking to town to do some shopping and sightseeing is only about 25mins away. Cafes are also within close proximity.
Tessa is the most wonderful host whom anyone can ask for. She gave us advice on our aurora hunting trips, taught us methods to keep warm out on the cold frozen lakes and even loaned us warm clothes and boots. Coming from a country where the norm is +30°C, we sure aren’t as well prepared with our winter wear as we thought we were. Tessa made sumptuous breakfast as well, accommodating us on our irregular breakfast schedule.
We are very grateful to Tessa for making us feel like home and helping us in making our trip to Yellowknife into such a wonderful and memorable trip. We’re already missing the place the moment we stepped into the taxi for the airport.
