Enjoy the simplicity and privacy of this hand crafted Mongolian yurt. Set in 21 private acres on Cowley Lake, this is the perfect place to base your Yukon adventures and take time out to relax. The stunning lake and mountain views are worth the visit.
Enjoy the privacy and comfort of our hand crafted Mongolian yurt. The yurt is set on a south facing deck with lake and mountain views. The yurt can sleep up to five guests and is kept warm and cosy with a simple woodstove.
The simplicity of the Yurt allows you to enjoy the beauty of the Yukon landscape at its fullest.
Please note that if the yurt is not available for your holiday dates we do have the option of the Cosy Cabin which sleeps 4 guests.
Available for guest use in the main house is a bathroom with shower and toilet; laundry facilities; yoga room; living room and library; and a cold room for food storage. For longer stays there is an outdoor cooking area and there is a canoe down on the lake you are welcome to take for a paddle. Children can enjoy the outdoor play area, soccer field, playhouse and tree house.
We have a huge raspberry patch that guests are welcome to enjoy in the fall.
We also offer guided day hikes through the surrounding wilderness.
During the winter months, viewing of the northern lights is a major highlight!
Interaction with guests
Guests are welcome to make themselves at home in the main house when they are staying with us.
We have two children, so kids are more than welcome here and they will find lots to do to keep themselves amused.
We enjoy night time stories around the bonfire, star gazing, northern light displays and evening cups of tea with our guests.
Other things to note
The Yukon is evolving into quite the mountain bike mecca, and Traveling Light Bed and Breakfast is conveniently situated halfway between the amazing trails of Whitehorse and the spectacular biking trails of Carcross. The perfect place to base yourself for an amazing mountain biking adventure.
If you are coming in the winter months and plan to go on a dog mushing adventure, please take the time to book before you get here to make sure you get a dog team. My favorite place to go dog mushing is Sky High Wilderness Ranch out at Fish Lake.
We ask that guests using the main house shower or kitchen facilities do so between the hours of 8am and 8pm. We have a family and it is important for us to keep the house quiet while children are sleeping. Thank you in advance.

I'm a fun loving English girl who has made the Yukon home. When ever it's time for adventure you can find me skiing, biking, hiking, windsurfing, running or paddling. I love life and aim to make the most of it. I look forward to hosting your Yukon adventures.
