“Are you looking for the true northern experience? If so, Stephan and Allyce's lodge is the perfect place to go! Do not forget to get the VIP pack; whether you like to relax under the northern lights or to do ice fishing and snowmobiling, you will be charmed by Stephan's advice and stories about Yellowknife! I also slept like a log thanks to the amazing bedding (very important when you stay up all night to watch northern lights!). I truly believe that was one of the most incredible experiences in my life. If you are looking to live the true experience of the Canadian Far North, I can only recommend the house of Stephan and Allyce. With the VIP pack, whether you want to chill under the northern lights, practice ice fishing, or get active by snowmobiling, you will not be bored! Stephan is great, he will advise you according to your preferences and will tell you his many anecdotes about the city. The bedding is very comfortable (which should not be overlooked when spending the night watching the dawn). I honestly think I had one of the best experiences of my life: DARK!”
Great Slave Lakeside B&B is a waterfront and fully licensed bed and breakfast located in the heart of Yellowknife's Old Town.

“This is the Airbnb that you book for two nights and the moment you check in you wish you were there for the week. This brand new suite could not have been more perfectly appointed in offering cozy creature comforts on the edge of a frozen snowy lake. Having stayed at a lot of Airbnb’s we enjoy quite a high standard such as a beautiful nights sleep, a tranquil setting, thoughtful provision of guest amenities, technology, and perfect location. From the kitchen that wasn’t missing a thing (including a great breakfast to start your day), to the hottest shower and soothing bathroom environment including a magnificent claw foot bath, we knew from the moment we walked in we had absolutely landed the best AirBnb in Yellowknife! The view from the bay window is so perfect it’s difficult to describe. Looking across the back garden down to the lake’s jetty, through magnificent tall timber and a back deck had us smitten! The photos you see on this listing are 100% accurate! The Airbnb was not only located on a quiet and beautiful looking street, it also backed onto the lake, given you a natural wilderness experience that was simply breathtaking. At night there is even the potential to see aurora lights from your back step! Andrea is a warm, friendly, thoughtful host who will do anything to ensure you have the perfect stay! The suite provides plenty of traveller information including local dining options that deliver, and local tour options. This stay is the reason Yellowknife is on our travel agenda in 2021! We will be back!”
We are a family of 4 who love our neighbourhood and our fresh air life on the lake. Our home is on Latham Island in Old Town, surrounded by natural highlights. Great Slave Lake access is a 2 minute walk. It is a warm family home in a beautiful, friendly neighbourhood. Walking is easy and we’re 2 minutes away from the nearest public transit bus stop. We have a parking spot and a plug-in for guests who bring a vehicle. We have a friendly, quiet dog who has never been in the suite.
“Loren's place is really great! The room is big and clean, and you will have your own bathroom. Also, there's a coffee maker in the room! That's awesome!!! Loren is a really nice host, he provides everything you need for your stay. The location is good too, easy to explore old town. If the Aurora is strong enough, you can even watch it just outside the house! There's a bus stop just right next to the house, it will take you all the way to downtown. I highly recommend Loren's place. We are super happy to stay here!”
