Faith and Ken truly put their guests first. This is clearly seen in the design of their place and their easy going manner. We never asked a question they couldn't answer. We stayed 6 nights in a luxury suite and appreciated Faith restocking the fridge for hearty breakfasts. We were there to see the northern lights so it was great... More

The stay was awesome, it was like staying at your own place. They have BBQ's to use and you can come and go whenever and the location was close enough to the main down town to walk. They were great hosts, they made sure we felt welcome and everything we needed was there. Great value for your dollar.

We had the Northern Room. Beautiful place, clean and affordable. Faith and Ken keep their place very clean and welcoming for every guests. We will definitely go back again on our 2017 trip. The only draw back was maybe because it was summer vacation, but too many kids and toys on outside property ie, bikes, roller blades and other kids... More

Thanks for the kind words! Its appreciated. I'm confused about toys and bikes being in the way. Rarely do we have children here. When they on occasion visit they are told to keep these items away from sidewalks and entrances to guests residents. Some guests bring children to visit and sometimes rent bikes and a few have even had skate... More

Embleton House is a real find away from the numerous hotels that are in Yellowknife. Faith made sure that I was well looked after for the four days that I was there.

Quiet location a few blocks from downtown. This establishment is labelled a bed and breakfast. It certainly is not. If you are used to a common dining room with fresh breakfast cooked hot by a conversational proprietor, you will be very disappointed.
