Stayed 5-9 Jun 13 in one of the upstairs room. Very cool guest house tied to the historical/legendary Sam McGee. The hosts Bernie and Pam did a great job. Charming, comfortable, clean and full of friendly people and canines. Close walking distance to amenities, bars, restaurants, shopping areas, museums, educational/cultural centre.. Whitehorse is not a cheap town. The kitchen and BBQ in the back yard will help if you want fresh and more economical than the restaurants. Go to the farmers market near Shipyard Park. You can get fresh/flash frozen seafood at one of those truck vendor Frisky Fresh Fish on 4th Ave or wild games meat/sausages at the deli. Liquor store close at 6PM, off sales are $20 for 6 pack. They also have a fire pit in the back yard for cool evenings. Very good restaurants I enjoyed was Klondike Rib and Salmon BBQ, Burnt Toast cafe, and Dirty Northern Pub food. Go to the Craft vendors behind Ramada Inn for some excellent souvenirs There were also archaeology students staying in the basement during that time that made the stay very entertaining and some good laughs had by all. Thanks all for an awesome adventure after Logan. Jeff.

The 2 story log house was built in 1907 by Mike and Tony Cyr for the "real" Sam McGee. All of it's historical charm is intact. Historical Guest House is for the independent and reasonably self-sufficient traveller who likes all the amenities and comforts of home when travelling. We welcome you as a guest and a friend.

Food is provided for a self-serve continental breakfast - a variety of hot and cold cereals, whole wheat bread for toast, a variety of jams and peanut butter, tea and coffee. Let us know if you have special dietary needs. It is called self-serve because guests are free to eat breakfast on their own schedule. Since the kitchen is communal it is also available for cooking at any time of the day. We want you to feel comfortable going into the fridge and the cupboards to find what you need. There is room in the house and in the garden under the gazebo for socializing, as well as privacy. We live in the green log house right next door. ... more less
