Great Slave Lakeside B&B

Lakefront Apartment in Yellowknife with kitchen
Great Slave Lakeside B&B is a waterfront and fully licensed bed and breakfast located in the heart of Yellowknife's Old Town. Situated directly on Great Slave Lake, the studio suite is self contained, includes a private entrance and is ideal for a couple, 2 adults, 3 adults or young family of four. The suite offers lovely lake views and the beautiful Aurora Borealis. Backyard wildlife are common and include magpies, ravens, squirrels, muskrat & sometimes even marten and fox.

The private B&B studio suite is modern and bright with newly painted walls and beautiful hardwood floors. The suite is made up of three rooms: one large room that houses a king sized bed, queen sized sofa bed and living area. The kitchenette has a bar sized fridge/freezer, induction plates, toaster oven and microwave. Self-serve coffee and tea are provided in the unit as well as continental cold breakfast options for your enjoyment. The private bathroom has a claw foot tub and separate shower.

A west facing deck and sitting area allow for a beautiful midnight sun experience.

All amenities including linens, towels and bathroom toiletries are provided. Free WIFI is available but it is not unlimited and therefore streaming is not allowed. Laundry facilities are available if needed for a small fee.

Great Slave Lakeside B&B is very near to some of Yellowknife’s best restaurants and shops. For instance, a 10 minute walk will get you to Bullock’s Bistro, a unique restaurant that is famous for its Great Slave Lake fish and Weaver & Devore Trading Co. which has a great selection of winter gear including Canada Goose parkas. Also nearby, is the NWT Brewing Company which serves pub food and locally brewed beer. Down to Earth Gallery, which is next door to the brew pub, features beautiful jewelry, arts and crafts made by local artisans. Old Town Glassworks is a cooperative where you can learn to sandblast recycled glass and make your own unique souvenir gift whereas Just Furs features beautiful northern furs such as mink, beaver and rabbit; both are very close to our home. The Old Town is also very well-known for its colorful houseboat community and Pilot’s Monument which offers views of the city skyline, Great Slave Lake and northern landscape. In the summer, you can watch the float planes while dining on the deck of the Wildcat Café, Yellowknife’s first and most iconic restaurants in the North. In the winter, you can enjoy the Northern Lights and a dog sled ride from one of the local tour companies. Downtown Yellowknife is about a 10 minute drive or 25 minute walk and offers many other shops and restaurants.
We have wanted to open a B&B for some time. Blair and I were both born and raised in Yellowknife and sharing our community with others just feels natural. We have two children. We all enjoy spending time outdoors whether we are camping, fishing (summer and winter), snowmobiling, hiking, boating and swimming. The B&B suite is on the main floor of our home. We have included many activity and attraction brochures as part of our welcome package which you can read at your leisure or talk to one of us - we can answer your questions and give you some ideas of what to do while visiting. If you need anything during your stay, you can just ask as we are only moments away.
Guest accommodation at this apartment offers a hairdryer and an iron/ironing board. Kitchens offer microwaves, kitchenware and utensils and coffee/tea makers.
