  • Description

    Description

    We are a small resort at the northern end of the Alaska Highway, approximately half way between Whitehorse and Fairbanks Alaska. We have 5 high end en suite rental rooms, an RV Park, and a food service for our guests. We are off the grid , with power coming from our own generators and water from a well.The property covers 22 acres, and is nestled at the foothills of Kluane Park Preserve. We have our own vegetable garden, and are endeavouring to create a Northern Botanical Garden. We are connected to the outside world via satellite internet. There are no farm animals here, only the camp ground dog - Chunky.

    What else ...

    We are located in a very scenic, but isolated part of the Yukon. Anyone applying must be comfortable staying in a remote setting! We offer the use of tents, river fishing, canoeing, hiking, and berry picking.
    Despite having highway access, there is no public transport.

    We encourage our guests to join us around our nightly camp fire to exchange stories, share information, and describe our simple life style, in this last frontier!
