the space

In the two cozy bedrooms you will sleep in absolute comfort under fluffy duvets. And if you have children or teenagers, there is a third area with a double/single bunk bed and a relaxation/play area. High-speed WiFi is included in the price and each bedroom has a work area . The Land Haus has air conditioning and room-darkening window curtains for the midnight sun. In winter the windows provide solar power, the geothermal system provides warmth and the cozy wood stove makes your stay a true retreat.

Bathrooms are stocked with locally made shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, plush and waffle towels, bathrobes and hairdryers, as well as a few smaller toiletries if needed.

The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, a professional gas hob and exhaust fan, a dishwasher, an oven, a microwave, a toaster, an air fryer, a rice cooker, a blender, a Brita filter, a filter coffee machine, a French press, a coffee grinder and a milk frother. For ambitious cooks, the kitchen island is equipped with many extras. The open plan dining room comfortably seats six and the view from the wood burning stove is the focal point of the cosy living area .

The laundry area has a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board.

A well-located covered patio where you can watch the sunrises while sipping your morning coffee is a popular and perfect spot for Northern Lights viewing. There are two fire pits ; one by the house with a picnic table, ideal for keeping warm while the Northern Lights appear, and one by the river bank. Many locals and tour operators look for the Northern Lights from Burma Road as it is a prime location.

Your host Angela lives on the ground floor in a completely separate apartment with her own parking space and entrance. Other than looking after the animals or the garden, you won't notice she is on site. Respecting our guests' privacy is our top priority, however we are always available by phone or text if you have any questions or concerns. And if you'd like to say hello, Angela would love to meet you while walking her dogs, riding her horses or in the garden or greenhouses!

the site

Land Haus is situated on 100 acres surrounded by boreal forest, pastures with native flora, hiking trails and the Yukon River, a spectacular part of the site. The end of Burma Road is a local spot to start or end your river trip, the back eddy offers a safe place to jump in if you dare! Beavers are frequently sighted as their lodge is a kilometre upstream and is a great place to watch the annual Yukon River Quest participants paddling. Foxes, coyotes, moose and wolves roam the area and you may be lucky enough to see them!

Land Haus is 25 minutes from Whitehorse city centre and Erik Nielsen Airport, and 15 minutes from Eclipse Nordic Hotsprings , Bean North Coffee Roaster and Café in the Woods , the Yukon Wildlife Preserve and the nearby Forest Preserve which offers great marked hikes. Takhini Gas Station, 12 km away, offers snacks, staples, locally sourced baked goods and alcohol for sale. Tum Tum's Meats at the same location offers a wide selection of locally sourced organic meats. Check our guestbook for opening hours and other local information.

Depending on the season, our guests have access to a pair of snowshoes, scooters, bicycles and outdoor games. Hiking, cycling and skiing trails are right outside the door! In addition to two older dogs and the cat Nova, there is also a horse on the property

Our pantry and red mini fridge offer a supply of local products for purchase to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable – breakfast items, preserves, eggs and more

Angela has lived on the property for 23 years. She is a jack of all trades and knows a lot and can help you with everything related to your stay or help you plan local excursions! Our life like a local! Your guide can direct you to activities, tours, attractions, restaurants and more, but the serenity and calm that the Land Haus provides will make you feel right at home! We look forward to seeing you.

About host

Angela Rita L

Angela grew up on Vancouver Island and headed to the Yukon 'for a couple of years' after finishing University. That was in 1992! The allure of the North has never left her and she's happy to share her home and space with fellow humans who appreciate the beauty of the land and nature.
