My husband & I brought our bikes to Yellowknife for 4 nights. We had good instructions by email prior to arriving (booking.com). We were greeted by a friendly girl (Rachel) who gave us a quick overview of the room/facilities.
We stayed in the family room on the main floor. Huge window gave us a great view of bay, and many other windows allowed us to enjoy the 19hrs of daylight. The room darkening curtains helped us sleep for those of the sunny hours that we wanted to, as well as provided privacy from the activity around the Adventure activities that were provided by the same owner.
The room was obviously newly renovated, with nice new everything! There is a minifridge, microwave, dishes, kettle, coffee maker and thoughtful food items placed in the drawers. The bathroom is brand new with a great shower. There are shelves to put your clothes on, as well as hooks & hangers, and a boot tray. The room locks, & we never felt any concern regarding our valuables.
The free wifi is excellent, with superior connectivity to that in major hotels.
The common area is thoughtfully inclusive of games/videos etc, although there is a tv & VHS/DVD player in our room. The kitchen is well stocked & clean. We enjoyed the Family Room especially as we felt it was complete and had everything we needed.
The owner has easy going dogs whom we fell in love with, and runs a kayak/canoe business, http://www.narwal.ca/, which we utilized for a wonderful day in a tandem kayak ($55/day). She also offers a kayak camp for kids that made us wish we had brought OUR boys to join in!
We enjoyed seeing the major popular tourist destinations without a vehicle, as we had brought our bikes. There are also reasonably good roads for fellow road bikers, that are easy to access from this B&B albeit via a short gravel road.
