Discovering Annie Lake Cabins was truly finding a gem in the Yukon. We went there from Hawaii hoping to experience the Aurora Borealis but the skies were cloudy, the moon was bright, and the activity was weak during our stay there and as a result, we never got to see any spectacle of color in the northern skies. You would think that we would be totally disappointed but we had the most enjoyable stay at Annie Lake Cabins. From the time that Mathieu picked us up in Whitehorse, we already knew it was going to be a great experience. He was so pleasant and informative about the area and it's history. Our dog sledding experience at Alayuk that Alexia arranged for us was an experience that will be long remembered. Everything was provided for us including transportation, warm clothes for mushing, and a great team of dogs with a sled. My son, my wife, and I each had our own team of dogs and sled. Marcel, who will compete in the Iditarod, was a great guide.
But best of all were the meals prepared by Alexia and the feeling of comfort in our cozy, private cabin. The relaxing conversations with Alexia during our meals made us feel like we were at home with a good friend. Visiting with their dogs (a lot) was also an experience as well as watching Mathieu getting his team hooked up to his sled for a practice run.
Missing the Aurora Borealis only gives us an excuse to visit Alexia and Mathieu at the Annie Lake Cabins again. We highly recommend anyone to stay at Annie Lake Cabins when visiting the Yukon.
