Jessica, January 2018: “The birdhouse was a perfect little getaway. Quiet and private. I would definitely recommend the birdhouse We look forward to coming back and checking out some of the activities available in the summer.”
Nicole, December 2017: “The perfect cozy little cabin for a relaxing stay. The area is beautiful to explore and the trails are easily accessible.”
Sara, Oct 2017: “Our stay in the Birdhouse for the weekend was the icing on the cake for our first Whitehorse experience. Hendrik was very communicative and helpful leading up to our visit and was flexible with our check-in, even though our arrival time was up in the air. Traveling with 2 dogs can always be a bit tricky and we almost stayed in a hotel before we found the Birdhouse. This rustic cabin beats a hotel any day in our book, we were so happy with our decision. The Birdhouse was pristine and cozy and everything we were hoping for. The woodstove provided the perfect ambiance for settling in with a cup of tea for the evening. I was skeptical about the outhouse, but even that was clean and had charming character. We are already looking ahead at when we can revisit Whitehorse and the Birdhouse in the spring. The 45ish minute drive from the cabin to downtown Whitehorse was very enjoyable! The scenery was mesmerizing. And then there was the view from the property… Absolutely incredible!!! Words and pictures could not do it justice. Thank you Hendrik and Nicole!”
Pavla, October 2017: “The Bird House is perfectly situated at the most beautiful place which we have seen in Yukon. Place was clean and well-equipped. Hendrik and his family are very kind hosts, helpful and they always have recommendations for a good trip. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. Thanks a lot.”
Alex, September 2017: “We had a great time staying at this little causy cabin for one night. The cabin is funky, but very well built, comfortable and warm! Very relaxing and quiet… We also enjoyed the trails nearby so we could do a little walk in the woods. Special mention for the outhouse, which has to be the brightest, cleanest and most odor-free we have ever seen!”
Austin, September 2017: “Hendrik’s cabin is awesome and secluded. Perfect for a nice getaway or the traveler looking for a place to stop for the evening!”
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!”
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.”
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
