I usually stay in hotels when I travel. As my purpose in going to Yellowknife was to pick cranberries I needed a place with a freezer. I had heard that Embleton House was good and decided to try it.
The proprietors were super friendly and helpful. The price per night was reasonable. It was also quite a bit cheaper than any hotel.
The B+B was spotless. The bedrooms weren't gigantic but big enough for one or two. There was a kitchen area with a table/chairs/TV/internet. You cooked your own breakfast. All items were placed in the fridge daily. You cleaned up after yourself. There was also a small living room area.
I can only speak for the one/two person area but I know there were larger suites available.
There was a deck/patio and BBQ area available for use to renters.
I very much enjoyed my stay. I would highly reccommend it.
