The most calming and relaxing time. We stayed in the Raven's Nest that is situated above the "common room." The common room offers internet for the entire property and has the sauna. Right outside is the hot tub which was truly an amazing experience with snow around you and the breathtaking stars. Apparently this suite is not good for the...

My fiance and I stayed here for 4 nights in early November 2016. We travelled to Yukon to see the northern lights. We were lucky enough to see the lights 3 out of the 4 nights! Our cabin (Cranberry) was perfect for viewing the lights from inside, without having to go outside, although we did go outside to get photos....

In early October we (4 adults ) spent two nights in cabins ( self contained accomodation) at Sundog. We were met in Whitehorse by Heather and transported out to the property and after an orientation of where everything was, we were left to 'retreat' and relax! The facilities are well suited to the environment, and as our prime purpose was...

The property is immaculate. The cabins are decorated with homemade quilts and local art. That's all eye candy. The owners are so very accommodating with only one goal in mind: your comfort, convenience and satisfaction. They were there when you needed them but left you to enjoy your stay in peace. The property was so inviting for nature walks and...

Much of what we did on our trip was truly influenced by this great local we had met! She had told us in passing that she was spending the weekend here to celebrate with some girlfriends, so we decided to check it out. It was fantastic! We got upgraded to the Cranberry cottage. It had two bedrooms, one with a...

What a wonderful experience to spend time at the Sundog Retreat. The team at Sundog are so friendly and accommodating. The Retreat is out of town and provides the perfect location to relax during the day and see the Northern Lights at night. Andrew collected me from my hotel in town and stopped for me to pick up the essentials...

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here while visiting Whitehorse and can't say enough about Sundog! Heather and Andrew were amazing hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay as memorable as possible. Our cabin (Wolf Den) was tucked away in the woods and provided us with lots of privacy and amazing views of the auroras (which we...

Andrew picked us up from our hotel, stopped at the grocery and liquor stores for supplies as this retreat is quite isolated, and took us to our cabin. We were lucky enough to have the Cranberry Cabin which had amazing views, was well appointed and well heated/insulated. The king size bed was very comfortable. We cooked our own breakfast, lunch...

Lovely area, away from it all location so a bit of a drive into Whitehorse. We stayed in Panorama cabin which was clean and comfortable, but did not have much of a view. Stayed up to see the Northern Lights and viewed from the viewing cabins and area, which were comfortable with hot chocolate available. Lots to see in the...

The retreat was simply outstanding. The room was exceptionally neat and the staff, particularly K, extremely nice. We stayed on our way up to Alaska and back along the Alcan Highway. After visiting downtown Whitehorse, we confirmed we stayed in the perfect spot.
