This is a one-of-a kind experience: two private floating homes at anchor in gorgeous Yellowknife Bay, surrounded by water, with perfect views of the Yellowknife houseboat community. These ECO, off grid floating homes are premium-built residences with all the amenities, including hot running water, a full-size bathroom with a tub or shower, and fully functional and modern kitchens with propane appliances. In summer months, you are provided with a canoe to get to and from the houseboats after we pick you up initially at the dock with your lugguage. Please note that you must have moderate paddling skills and be able to canoe 150 yards to get to shore. In poor weather conditions, we can ferry you over with our power boat. During the winter, you can drive right up and park beside our floating homes onEnjoy the Northern Lights right over your head, right outside the door of your B&B! Yellowknife itself is a vibrant community with beaches, fine dining, movie theatre, museums, art galleries and craft shops.
