Blockhütten im Yukon

The Birdhouse

Willkommen in unserem kleinen Vogelhäuschen!

Eine Blockhütte mitten im Wald. Kein Netz, kein Strom, kein Telefon! Eine Weile lang einfach mal „abgekoppelt“ leben. Mit der wohligen Wärme eines Holzofens, dem warmen Licht von Propanlampen, dem Charme einer gemütlichen Hütte ganz aus Holz. Abschalten!

Vor der Tür: Wald und ein grosser See, welche je nach Jahreszeit zum Wandern, Radfahren, Reiten, (Eis-) Fischen, Paddeln, Schwimmen, Langlaufen oder Schneeschuhwandern einladen. Die Hütte beherbergt bis zu vier Personen und verfügt neben einer kleinen Küchenzeile mit Gasherd über eine Essecke, einen Holzofen und einen Loft, in dem sich ein grosses Doppelbett befindet (mit der Möglichkeit dort eine weitere Matratze auszulegen). Das Wasser wird in Kanistern bereitgestellt. Anstelle eines Badezimmers gibt es ein Klohäuschen, das für den Yukon typische „Outhouse“.

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.

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.“

Lake View Cabin

Diese Hütte bekommt gerade noch den letzten Schliff, aber eines können wir Euch schonmal versprechen:
Die Aussicht aus dieser Cabin wird einfach spektakulär sein!
