This B&B is in a great location to walk all around. Walk right out on to the dock and watch the Northern Lights! Lovely place! Remember not to let the dogs out! You can rent a canoe right there! Yummy breakfasts. Very friendly hosts.

It's on the Bay, so be prepared for gorgeous views, wildlife galore, and opportunities for kayak, canoe, and camping trips, all offered by the B and B. Cathy, the hostess/owner, is wonderfully low-key and really welcoming. The kitchenette has a kettle, teapot, coffeemaker, convection toaster oven and fridge. Easy to walk to Sunlines convenience store, and Your Independent Grocer, so...

Stayed in the Polar bear suite for three nights. No complaints for such a big room. Quiet at night. The B&B owner is a nice lady. She explained the rules of residence one by one. I think all the rules were reasonable. And her daughter prepared waffle and muffins for us early in the morning. We saw aurora outside the...

Clean homey place overlooking Slave lake. I was able to rent a canoe and this B&B and went out on the lake and caught some pretty big Northern Pike. If you are into free fishing this is the place for you.

Stayed three nights with Cathy, Tiffany, Devon, and the rest of the crew. If you want formal or the somewhat isolated feeling traditional lodging gives Narwal is probably not the place for you. If you're up for sharing the ground floor of a house with other guests, an owner who lives upstairs, and some escape artist canines it's absolutely awesome....
