“Wonderful Cottage & landscape”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Cottage where you can watch if you're lucky Aurora.
Andrew and Heather were our gracious owners.
It did not appear to directly above Aurora, was seen in a lower position in the sky.

it is located About 35 minutes from the airport, about 15 minutes from the takhini hot springs.
The room was perfect heating, towels and soap are standing and clean bed, a fully equipped kitchen.My room could use Wi-Fi level 2.

Andrew and Heather was very friendly owners.

Also, I always want to go to stay!

Love the location, it's 20-30 min drive from Whitehorse but the drive was beautiful and the road that leads to the cottages looked like winter wonderland. The cabin was so clean and spotless, with comfy beds and fully equipped kitchen. We stayed at the Fireweed which was located on the other side of the field which wasn't the best place to see the Northern Lights so next time we will pick the cottages closer to the field, but if you're not there for the Lights Fireweed is perfect. Heather was super nice and made sure our heater works properly when we had a little issue with it on the second night. The only thing that I can pick on it is that the Fireweed did not have Wi-Fi connection and we had to go to the Sunroom in order to use the internet, I think some of the other cabins do have Wi-Fi. We were glad that we picked Sundog Retreat over the accommodations in downtown Whitehorse. We definitely will consider staying here again.

The cabin was warm and cozy and the owners were super nice and helpful in dealing with unexpected temperatures below minus 40 and some car troubles. Needless to say, I cannot wait to go back but when it is a little warmer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Fuzzy Crocus which was perfect for 2 people

We came here just to get away for a night and it was very nice. We enjoyed the sauna and the hot tub as well as darts and ping pong table were fun. Cabins are very clean and well kept. We didn't take the dogs with us but I love that the cabins are K-9 friendly.

The scenery is beautiful and location peaceful. The cabins were very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We are a family of five and there was lots of room. We will definitely stay here again!

Found this place after getting bumped by a convention at the Westmark. Weather caused a slip in our arrival and found myself without a place to go that accepted dogs. I did an internet search for pet friendly locations in Whitehorse and found Sundog. I can't tell you how impressed we were. The house (not another hotel room) was ready and warm for us upon arrival...no checking in just show up. A complimentary gift basket was there on the table and was impressive. From start to finish this was a great stay. Would highly recommend!!!
