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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

This was our first day in the Yukon and the vibe and view from the yurt set the mood for the rest of our trip. This is a special place and I would definitely do this again.

Our stay here was a delight from the beginning to the end! A small, winding trail leads to the yurt, and opens up to the spectacular view. The yurt is actually an authentic Mongolian yurt imported from Mongolia! It was very fun to open the beautiful set of doors, and walk into the inviting and comfortable interior. Sitting on the private deck watching ravens doing arial acorobatics was incredibly relaxing and magical. We couldn't imagine a better setting. Did I mention the breakfast? Amanda is amazing!

The views are absolutely stunning. The direction are perfect get you right to the front door. I plan on definitely coming back. The only thing I didn't like was I couldn't stay longer. It's close to town yet far enough away to relax and feel like you miles from anyone. This is a must stay if coming to Whitehorse.

The yurt is super comfortable and offers an unbeatable view on to a private lake. Open door out house took some getting used to but the view made up for it. Lots of bugs in the summer to remember to bring spray. The property has canoes that go out on to the lake and a steep walk down. Amanda is a good conversationalist and when we were there, there were a bunch of other lodgers who made interesting conversation at the breakfast table. Amanda also dishes up a great breakfast, atmosphere is cosy and friendly and the resident cat loves pats.

Loved every bit about the one night here. Even the rain couldn't dampen the experience. I am only remiss that I didn't stay longer. Amanda is absolutely lovely. She invited me to dine with her and her kids. They prepared fresh pesto, and we had a lovely chat. I had to leave early the next morning, so she prepped an amazing breakfast that I could keep in a cooler in the yurt. Staying in the yurt was amazing. The view is priceless, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud, and reserving the yurt was one of the best decisions I made for my road trip through BC to Alaska.

Beautiful location. Good breakfast. Steep price for basic amenities, especially if you have more than one guest.

Response from Amanda:
In fact the price per guest decreases significantly the larger the number of guests staying in the yurt (maximum 4). I sincerely hope that all our guests find their accommodation comfortable; their experience unique; the views spectacular; the organic breakfast wholesome; their stay memorable; and their holiday money well spent. Happy Travels, Amanda
