*Please visit our website for recent changes, more details, and instant bookings* Sitting across from a beautiful park at the confluence of the Yukon and Klondike Rivers in a historic gold-rush town, Dawson City Guesthouse is an ideal spot from which to access both cultural landmarks and rich wilderness. The guesthouse is situated in a serene setting, with plenty of well-kept outdoor garden/lawn space, a fire pit with ample and comfortable seating, and a spacious 2nd storey balcony that provides glorious sunset views of historic Tröchek, an ancient First Nations meeting place situated at the confluence of the Yukon and Klondike Rivers. Please note that all suites are privately located on the 2nd floor of our family home, so if mobility is an issue feel free to contact us to determine suitability. Please also note that we no longer serve breakfast on the premises, but would be happy to suggest some excellent options a short walk away. We look forward to meeting you soon!

My partner and I travelled to Dawson City for our honeymoon and stayed at this Guesthouse. The decor was beautiful, the beds were super comfy and the blackout blinds were super helpful for the midnight sun. The owners were friendly and accommodating- they drove us to the airport, were flexible on check in and check out time and gave us great restaurant tips. We would highly recommend this place!

Pleasant and helpful hosts! The home is located in the south end of the village; about a 20 minute walk to the center of the village. Room was clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped. Dawson City is an 'open air' museum; lots of history; well worth a visit!

Response from Benjamin Shore, Owner at Dawson City Guesthouse
Responded Jan 26, 2022
Thanks so much for the kind words, and we're so glad you enjoyed Dawson and your stay at our place! We just wanted to clarify for other readers that, though taking 20 minutes to walk downtown from our place is certainly possible (and even recommended - there's lots to see along the way!), to walk directly to the downtown core takes most folks under 10 minutes.

Our host ,Ben, was friendly and greeted us each morning with a delicious breakfast in our room. His B&B was within walking distance of the downtown area,very clean and inviting. Would stay here again if we are ever in the area. Thank you Ben for your warm hospitality.

A very clean , friendly B n B just a five minute walk to downtown. The hosts, Ben and Jenna were very hospitable, very helpful and their breakfasts were fantastic! Home made granola, waffles with birch syrup, or toasted bagels, coffee and fruit - a great way to start the day.

Jenna, Ben, and Sadie are lovely hosts! We had a very comfortable one night stay in one of their clean, spacious, and stylish rooms. The room was equipped with everything we needed and I particularly liked the separate sitting room attached to the bedroom, it would be an ideal home base for a longer stay in Dawson. The B+B is located on a sunny little street just a stone's throw from the river, a perfect place to wake up on a sunny summer day.

We didn't want to stay in the bigger standard fair hotel/inn in the town.So we chose to stay @ Dawson City B&B for two nights... and i wish we had stayed longer. The location was convenient, room perfectly clean and the beds cozy. Loved sitting in the front balcony after a long day overseeing a small, vegetable garden. Ben and Jenna have done a great job to set up the B&B and were great hosts to us. Ben gave us a warm welcome, even though we arrived fairly late at night... rather day - it never got dark in Dawson City when we visited. He provided lotsa useful local tips and advice. But our stand out memory at the B&B is definitely associated with Jenna's waffles. The breakfast was delicious, homemade and so fresh... easily the best meal we had in the town :) Thank you Ben and Jenna! We would love to stay at your B&B if we visit Dawson city again.

A lovely B&B away from the bustle of the city (but only a short walk to all the action). Wonderful, caring hosts, crisp white linens, delicious breakfast. Very clean. We were made to feel so welcome and cared for during our stay. The hosts readily share their knowledge of Dawson and area. The location allows you easy access to the Dyke Trail, 9th Avenue Trail, and a view of the river as well. I will be back!

Our time at this B&B was pretty much perfect. We enjoyed a lovely room with all of the right touches, a gourmet breakfast made to order (and delivered when WE were ready to enjoy) and the very pleasant and accommodating young hosts. We certainly will stay there again! Thank you, Ben and Jenna. And Sadie too!

Ben was an excellent host. It was as if staying in our own home. Room, linen, bathrooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast was delicious and provided promptly on time. Provided information about Dawson City, simple but invaluable local tips, as we were driving down Dempster Highway next day. Looking forward to stay again.
