I am different than other hosts as I offer Northern life activities, adventures and some local trips for a little shared help with day to day chores. Since “Life truly begins outside your comfort zone”, I offer Northern challenges too! You can spend your time reading a book in front of the cozy woodstove in Winter or on a sunny hidden beach in Summer. Swim in the lake or have a campfire. Search for an awesome photograph of sunrise, wildlife or mountains, we have lots of awesome scenery! Try baking bread in the oven and cooking delicious meals. Hike up a mountain. Discover secret hot springs and World's smallest desert. Have you ever tried snowshoeing? Tenting in the snow? Swimming in a lake at night? Taken a Dip in a wilderness hot spring? You do have three days a week off to do your own thing. Explore Whitehorse, hike the local area and do programs at the Canada Games Center, or stay at home and enjoy the wilderness. Check to see if you have the approved vaccines to visit Canada: https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/covid-vaccinated-travellers-entering-canada#determine-fully
I treat my guests as friends and as my family, never as workers or employees. There are no work commitments, therefore no Work Visa is required. We share this Northern lifestyle. We share a home, we share meals and we share adventures and roadtrips. You have lots of control over deciding the meals, activities and trip destinations. I have hosted for over 11 years, so I am a knowledgeable local who has taken my past guests all over Yukon, Northern BC and Alaska. I look for enthusiastic and adventurous guests who can make their stay an adventure for them and for me.
My experience with Stephen was wonderful and unfurgetable. The house is simple and surrounded by nature, in 3 minutes walking you arrive at the Lake which has an incredible view. Stephen is a person with a giant heart, has a lot to knowledge about the local history, and is very pacient to talk (which made a big difference for me because I don't speak English very well). We visited many different places, swan in Hot Springs, and we had a great time around the campfire and watching movies. I had the opportunity to see bears and many other animals. I will take this experience with me always <3

A really great stay in a great place! There are many fun adventures, but also lots of learning about sustainability and life off the grid. Work is very minimal, but you never feel bored. Stephen is a great host and goes out of his way to make the experience memorable.
