Thank you for the things you have done to make our stay amazing. You have been such a great hostess. Mahsi.


Very nice and comfortable place to stay

Arctic chalet b&b is a very nice and comfortable place to stay. The owner Lona is such a nice person and very welcoming. She always has a nice breakfast ready for us in the am. The room we stayed in was spacious and the bed was big and comfortable. The location of her b&b is located near everything like the hospital, shopping and restaurants etc. The neighborhood is very quiet. Lona is very informative of the ongoing community activities and where to go for tourism.

The best place to stay in Yellowknife

I'm Chinese guy and I'm studying at Dalhousie University now. There're thousands reasons for me to fall in love with Yellowknife, one of the most important is Arctic Chalet B&B. I definately believe that this is the best place to stay in Yellowknife. Delicious breakfast, confortable, clean bed and such a nice, well organized host Lona. Now I want to say thank you so much Lona!

とっても素敵なオーナーです!! クリスマスと重なり、お店が開いてないことも考えられたので、食料持参で行きましたが、朝食以外にも、常に食べ物、飲み物が準備されていたので、困ること は無かったです。 また、ゲスト用のキッチンがあって、レンジや炊飯器、冷蔵庫があるので便利でした。 ウォルマートやスーパー、レストランも近くにあり、タクシーで$5,6で行けます。ダウンタウンまでは、タクシーで$12位でした。 建物はとても清潔で綺麗で、静かな場所にあるので、とてもオススメです!!Wi-Fi環境もとてもいいです。 その上、料金も安いと思います!! 私は毎日オーロラツアーに参加しましたが、このB&Bからは、オーロラが観られることもあるそうです

Very nice neighborhood

The location is in a very nice neighborhood with hiking trails around lakes very close by. You can view the northern lights in her own back yard. Super clean and within walking distance to the center of town and most attractions - easy to get the bus- just at the end of the street. Lona provides a nice breakfast with variety each day. She is very welcoming and helpful hostess. I would happily come back and stay again. We stayed Sept 25th to Sept 29th/2013 Sue Gunter

Thank you

This is a testimonial for a great supporter of Arctic Chalet - Yellowknife B&B -- David Lovell:

"Thank you, former Yellowknife mayor, David Lovell, for assisting in an incredibly taxing day at the B&B. Your expertise was needed and greatly appreciated"

WONDERFUL time at the Arctic Chalet

I had a WONDERFUL time at the Arctic Chalet. It is in a nice, safe neighbourhood and close to all the amenities and highways needed.

Lona is an EXCELLENT hostess. She takes time to prepare you for your trip up north and answers your queries on a timely basis.

She is a fountain of knowledge academically, socially and culturally so please do not hesitate to pick her brain on any topic. Very down to earth and easy to get along with. I enjoyed visiting with her when possible.

My bed was indeed very comfortable. I didn't want to leave it :)

Breakfast was also one of a surprise. Make sure you request her omelet muffins (variation on the Quiche) and bannocks (baked and not greasy :)

All in all, the price of the Chalet is very affordable and the live-in quarters, a delight.

I highly recommend this chalet.



This is the cheapest place I could find to stay in Yellowknife but you would never know it when you arrive, the place is luxurious and the bed is super super comfy. Lona is also a great host and likes to share some of her homemade cooking which is an added bonus! Will defintely stay again if I return YK.
