Blue Raven B&B
Ranked #16 of 23 Yellowknife B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 31, 2010

Stayed here for 4 nights during Dec 24 and Dec 28 in Blue Raven. This B&B is in old town, and we took TAXI to downtown (5 mins drive and about $10) and airport ($22). The house has lake-view in the living room, so we can see some “free” aurora at home (although it’s not as good as the aurora viewing tour). The owner Tessa has lived in yellowknife for 35 yrs as photographer (can find her work/photos at Yellowknife prince of whales museum). When we arrived, Tessa mapped the B&B, several restaurants and museum for us, which is really nice and helpful. Since we didn’t bring warm pants there, Tessa provided us 2 ski-pants and lots of socks, which save us some money for cloth rental. The room is pretty quiet and clean. 3 rooms share 1 bathroom, but need to save the usage of water/internet. Blue Rave is the place I highly recommend: the price is very reasonable compared other hotels (everything in Yellowknife is not cheap) and people here are very nice and helpful !!

I read reviews for a number of hotels/B&Bs in Yellowknife, and decided on the Blue Raven. They have the best prices around and you'll wonder why they don't charge more! (Seriously!) The B&B boasts comfortable rooms, mouth-watering breakfasts, accommodating hosts, tons of local information and spectacular views of Great Slave Lake. And when it's cold outside, you can curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book and a cup of tea. Heaven! The rooms are very quiet which is important to me because I'm a light sleeper.

If you come to Yellowknife and want to feel like you're visiting family, stay at The Blue Raven! Hell, it's BETTER than family! Tessa greets you in the morning with a smile and hot coffee. My family grunts and rolls their eyes at me! :-)
