Yukon Cabins for Rent

The Tiny House

Tiny is terrific!

Ever wanted to find out how little space or stuff you’d need and still be happy? Ever wanted to experience what “less is more” truly means? And you wanted to do it in style?

Then our Tiny House is calling you!

And it might be tiny, but it has all the basics you need: a double bed loft, a cozy dinner table with benches, some room for storage, potable water, electricity, an outhouse, an outside shower house, and even a fully equipped kitchen with a two burner stove and kitchen sink. Besides that, there are also some extras, like a skylight roof (imagine yourself laying right between the crowns of spruce trees, the stars, northern lights or midnight sun shining down on you), lawn furniture and a BBQ, and a lot of well read books and magazines. Besides all that, the Tiny House has plenty of tiny details to discover. (Oh yes, we had fun building that cabin!)

Emily, August 2017: “Little cozy getaway during our tent camping trip. Tiny house (and outhouse) are rustic but meticulously clean, bright, and well set up. The hosts were super flexible about our pet and very friendly and helpful. Thanks!”

Gabriel, August 2017: “Great tiny place if you’re traveling or just want to spend a quiet evening away from it all. The place gives you that feeling from childhood when you have a secret hiding place, except that this one has a gas stove and a proper comfy bed. Would definitely go again.”

Dina, June 2017: “We were mountain biking in Whitehorse and Cacross so we decided to stay someplace between the two. It’s about 45 mins from Whitehorse and 45 mins from Cacross. Marsh Lake itself had a lot of recreational activities that we regret not taking part in. We loved the tiny cabin. Hendrick was stayed up for us when we arrived late at 10:30pm. The tiny cabin fit the two of us and our 3 dogs. Even though it’s a dry cabin, there was enough potable water provided for our 3 night stay. The partial clear roof allowed plenty of light in especially since we came during the summer and enjoyed the midnight sun. The cleanest outhouse was on the property and there was an outdoor shower. Thanks for the wonderful stay Hendrick and Nicole!”

Courtney, June 2017: ““Hendrik and Nicole went above and beyond to make our stay the best. The tiny home was wonderful and peaceful. Out of our entire trip from Vegas to Anchorage, this was by far the most peaceful stay we had. The location is serene.”

____________________________________________________________

Nicole: “This tiny house was a perfect getaway, and Hendrik and Nicole couldn’t have been more welcoming–they even gave me a quick and thorough rundown of bear safety, and showed me some amazing walking paths in the area. They were always available if I had any questions, but the cabin was still very private. And holy moly is Marsh Lake ever BEAUTIFUL. I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the world for a few days, even (or especially) if you’re used to city living. Hendrik and Nicole made my transition from downtown Toronto to rural Yukon seamless. (It’s worth noting that there’s no cell service [for Telus, at least] from the cabin itself, but you can walk a short ways down the road and get a few bars.)” Sebastian: “We really enjoyed staying in Hendrik’s Cabin. It was nice and small and so beautiful. We felt home from the first second. The area around is also nice and you can go to the March Lake, if you want to. We appreciate staying with you Hendrik, thank you for taking care of us.” The Airbnb Team: “Hi Hendrik, Your guests are loving what you’re doing! You’ve gotten five 5-star reviews in a row. It takes a lot of work to make such a great impression on travellers, and you’re doing it consistently. Thanks for being a conscientious and welcoming host. Keep up the fantastic work!”

Daniel: “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hendrik and Nicole’s tiny house in the Yukon. It was exceptionally clean and gave a great northern experience. It’s located very close to many hikes as well as only a 45 minute drive into Whitehorse. Nicole provided several recommendations on hikes and activities. Would definitely stay again”

____________________________________________________________

Eric: “Both Hendrik and Nicole were very welcoming! The tiny cabin was clean and in excellent condition and we really enjoyed our stay. It was Hendrik’s birthday and friends were over, we got to meet others while enjoying a fire and even trying moose for the first time. Hope to be back again soon!”

David: “The tiny cabin was beautiful, peaceful, and just what I wanted. Thanks!”

Justin: “My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon because we wanted a place that was in between camping and a hotel, and this was ideal. Rustic, but still cozy and warm. The view was incredible, the cabin was clean, and the hosts were accommodating. While this is far from roughing it, be sure you are prepared for a small, practical space that will require some patience at times. If small cabins are your thing, I highly recommend this! Some decent easy trails nearby for hiking, and of course world class Yukon hiking all within short drives. Whitehorse is about almost an hour away, but it is an easy, scenic drive. We had a wonderful time! In praise of the hosts: My wife and I were held up with bizarre rental car issues, and Nicole graciously waited up for arrival which was about 1am! I couldn’t believe what great hospitality that was. She made sure we knew where everything thing (outhouse, extra clean water, heater, etc) when we arrived. They were gone on a outdoors trip the following day so that was our only interaction, but we are extremely appreciative of their hospitality.”

Greg, August 2017: “The birdhouse is exactly as described and was very nicely cleaned and neat upon arrival. A quick tour from the host and the place was ours with much appreciated privacy. We were warned to go light on the woodstove and hoo-boy was that a good warning. There will be no problem keeping the birdhouse toasty in even the dead of winter. Thanks for the stay!

Jon, August 2017: “Excellent hosts. Quiet and wonderful cabin. Way, way, way better than staying anywhere in Whitehorse (and I’ve tried that).”

Bryce, August 2017: “Cozy space near a beautiful lake! My girlfriend and I were able to get a lot of rest and have a quiet comfortable place to relax. Well insulated and holds heat very well from the wood stove. If you aren’t comfortable without electricity, running water or an indoor bathroom then this is not the place for you! But it is a good spot to unplug for a little while.”

Wendy: “This is a lovely spot for a quiet getaway. Great attention to detail in the cabin – cute and cozy. Thanks! We will be back and have already shared our experiences with our friends so hopefully you’ll get some more business that way as well :)”

Daniel & Julie: “Hendrik and his family were great hosts with a very lovely cabin to stay in. Highly recommend staying here!”

Bryan: “My wife and I had a fantastic stay in this cozy cabin. On arrival we were greeted by Nicole who gave us a warm welcome and quick rundown of things we needed to know. The location is very scenic. The fire kept us nice and warm. The only thing was that it got a little too hot one night, but we were warned that it could get pretty warm. We really appreciated the knock on the door to let us know that the northern lights are out. What a sight! We would definitely stay again. Thank you!”

Frances: “We absolutely loved the birdhouse! It was so cozy and simple. The little cabin is set up with everything needed for cooking. The trails around are really nice, the lake has beautiful views, and the community is super welcoming. Hendrik and Nicole were really nice and helpful. Although its located really close to their cabin, I still felt that I had privacy. It was a wonderful place and I would love to go back. ”

Jordan: “We had a great time staying at the birdhouse cabin. Hendrik was super friendly and there was a fire burning in the wood stove before we even showed up so that we arrived in a warm spot. Can’t wait to go back.”

Michael: “For a 4-day trip to the Yukon, my wife and I stayed 2 nights at the Birdhouse near Marsh Lake and it was the perfect place to spend time just in the wilderness. It has everything that you would need to stay for a short trip: propane stove with oven, gas lamps, kitchen utensils including bowls and plates, a wonderful wood burning stove (which keeps you very warm even when it is -20 Celsius outside), a loft with a very comfortable bed all in a wonderfully decorated, custom built wood cabin. Its also a good launching out point to places like Tagish and Carcross, or if you really need to get supplies, its still a decent drive back to Whitehorse. We wanted to experience the Yukon as it once was and this was a great way of doing it. Thank you Hendrik and Nicole for allowing us to stay at your wonderful Birdhouse.” What Michael loved about your listing: We loved the cabin itself and how inviting Hendrik and Nicole were to us. We loved the craftsmanship of the cabin and the fact that Hendrik built it himself made the stay even more special.

What Michael thought you could improve about the experience: Keep building log cabins. 🙂       February 2016

Iris: “I didn’t get to meet Hendrik, but Nicole was very welcoming when I arrived. I was driving on my way from Colorado up to Cordova, AK, mostly camping, and the Birdhouse was a lovely place to stay along the way. It’s really cute – the perfect size for me and my dog, or a couple. I only got to stay overnight (I wish it was longer), but I took plenty of time sitting at the little table on the porch reading and drinking coffee and tea (from the little stash in the cupboard!) and taking meandering walks on the nearby trail next to the beautiful lake. There is a lot of natural light and it feels very inviting. And the sleeping loft is adorable (there’s really no other word for it). I’m not sure when I would have an opportunity to come back, but I would certainly love to in the future!” What Iris thought you could improve about the experience: I think it will be really great when you add the outdoor shower you were talking about.

Zephyr: “The Bird House was amazing, and the perfect place to stop and rest along my journey to Alaska. Hendrik made the stay easy, and his craftsmanship and attention to detail in the Bird House are impressive. Will stay here again if I’m ever nearby” ______________________________________________________

Dough: “We had such a good time in the “Birdhouse”; and it was just what we were looking for at the conclusion of our Yukon / Alaska trip. The  Birdhouse is really fun, well laid out and very nice attention to detail. Provides a great peek into life off-the-grid and pretty easy to take. Hendrik and Nicole were very welcoming and helpful, but leave you alone unless you want assistance. We would definitely look to stay on the property in the future, perhaps we might try the Lakeview cabin, but unlikely, we loved the Birdhouse! ”

What Doug loved about your listing: uhhmm … everything.

October 2015 _____________________________________________________ The Airbnb Team: “Hi Hendrik, Your guests are loving what you’re doing! You’ve gotten five 5-star reviews in a row. It takes a lot of work to make such a great impression on travellers, and you’re doing it consistently. Thanks for being a conscientious and welcoming host. Keep up the fantastic work!” ______________________________________________________

Traolach: “What a beautiful cabin and location. Hendrik was very quick in responding and was keen to answer all of our questions. The cabin is nestled in amongst the trees and is beautifully designed and built. It’s easy to park your car off the road and walk the twenty metres to the cabin. Everything you need is in the cabin, including a cooker to prepare your food. The wood stove is excellent, we stayed there on a cold night and we were toasty warm the whole night. The bed is very comfortable. You have all of the privacy you want and at the same time Hendrik is always happy to be available if you have any questions or need anything. The outhouse is immaculately clean. The location itself is beautiful and you are a short walk from Marsh Lake. It’s not a long drive from Whitehorse to this cabin and it is well worth it. Don’t bother with a hotel, stay here and get a real Yukon experience!”

What Traolach loved about your listing:

Hi guys, thank you for having us. The cabin is beautiful! Thank you also for giving us all the privacy we wanted whilst being open and welcoming at the same time. We had a really lovely time, than you.
What Traolach thought you could improve about the experience: The only tiny comments we have to make is that a small axe would be useful for kindling and a recycling bin would be nice.

Heather: “The cabin was perfect: expertly hand-made, beautifully decorated, well-designed. Thank you for having me for my short stay.”

Christopher:  “Henrik was able to accommodate us at the last minute in his clean and well-built cabin. The cabin is very well-done and has everything you need. It is dry (no indoor plumbing) but was clean and cozy and suited us well. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone!”

_______________________________________________________

Rox-Ann: “An absolute gem. Great construction, perfectly outfitted on a really lovely plot of land. Extremely nice hosts, responsive, welcoming, and available. I would come back here anytime – in fact, I hope to this winter! Highly recommended.”

_______________________________________________________

Curtis: “Hosts were very communicative leading up to the arrival and arrival itself was easy. Helpful and friendly folks and unintrusive during our stay as well. The “room” itself was super cozy and had everything we needed. Great for a couple or couple with a small child (like us) or a pet. Everything they described is what we received, no surprises and even helped us out when we needed a high chair (borrowed one from their friend). Great place to base yourself and explore this little corner of the Yukon (a vehicle is pretty much essential FYI). Our only problem was no way to store food so some things did spoil, you have to plan your meals accordingly and eat everything the day you make it. Be sure to stock up on foodstuffs for the time you will stay there. Not sure how the hosts could rectify this at all as there is no electricity at the joint, so just plan well. It’s not their problem. 🙂

Marieke: “The birdhouse was great! It as very unique and cozy, and after a month of camping it was great to have an oven to cook with. Hendrick also went out of his way to let us use the BBQ, such we really appreciated. Next time I think I’d like to check out the tiny cabin if we stayed!”

Ally: “Hendrix was absolutely wonderful! His place was great and a wonderful escape into the Yukon wilderness!!”

Amy: “This place is great. The whole property is really cool, with beautiful woods, lots of trails, and views of the lake. The cabin itself is perfect. Just rustic enough, and very cozy. ”

________________________________________________________

Kat: “Hendrik wasn’t able to greet us when we arrived, but he sent his very friendly neighbours to fill us in. The cabin was super clean, funky, no bugs inside – a hard thing to do in the woods! – and there were even some spices and tea/coffee available. Even the outhouse was clean and tastefully decorated. We appreciated such a peaceful place to stay. For those looking for an isolated space, this is not 100% private, as it’s close to their house with no curtains. However, while we were there Hendrik and his family were away, so we found the place very private. We enjoyed hiking around the area and appreciated the bear bell and bear spray that were provided, just in case! We checked out the community centre for dinner on Friday night, too. It’s a very friendly community! Overall we loved experiencing tiny house living for a couple of days in such a beautiful area. It’s not too far from the city, beaches, and hiking spots. We’d come back for sure and recommend it to anyone needing a break from city life.” “The views, the peace and quiet, clean well water readily available, and more. Your space is lovely – we loved all the little finishings, from the colours to the door knobs. We can see you put a lot of heart into your craft. Thanks for sharing it with airbnb-ers.”
