Facilities at the B&B

A visitor enjoys the coffee/tea buffet at the Four Seasons Bed & Breakfast - Whitehorse, Yukon    In addition to your private room, we invite you to use the guest lounge. Relax and plan your activities for tomorrow, watch TV or a movie, or enjoy the company of the other guests. If there are other guests in their rooms, the TV should be turned off by 10 p.m.

   For your enjoyment, the antique armoire is stocked with complimentary coffee, tea, iced tea, hot chocolate, popcorn and other goodies. The microwave, refrigerator, small appliances and dishes are for guest use. You may store your groceries in the upstairs fridge as well.

   Laundry facilities - Guests are welcome to do their own laundry at no charge; detergent, stain remover, bleach and such are provided. You may use the machines between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. We have an iron and ironing board.

   Storage - If you need extra luggage or valuables stored during a wilderness tour, please ask.

   Telephone - A telephone for guest use is provided in the guest lounge. As is normal in Canada, local calls are free; long distance calls can be made "collect" or A visitor from Hong Kong relaxes in the guest lounge. charged to inexpensive phone cards available at local stores. If you require privacy, please feel free to take the phone into your room.

   Cell (mobile) phone service - There is cell phone coverage in all or most Yukon communities, but none between communities. In other words, stretches of highway are dead spaces. Not all cell phones work in the Yukon; some American cell phone plans do not allow calls originating outside the USA. There is a technical limitation as well. The Yukon's cell service is CDMA-based (code division multiple access); that is the system used by Bell and Telus in Canada. GSM-based phones (the system used by the Rogers network in Canada and some European phones) will not work here. For wilderness travellers, the Yukon government's tourism department says that satellite phone networks are accessible across the Yukon and that satellite phones can be rented in Whitehorse.

   Computer access - A desktop computer is available for all guests to check their e-mail or send a quick message. You can also connect your laptop to the wireless Internet signal from all rooms.

   Safety and recreation - The Four Seasons B&B is located in a very safe neighbourhood. Feel free to go for a walk in the area. We also have several bicycles for guest use. A small forested park with winter skating rink and summer playground is located directly across the street. The Yukon River trail, the Whitehorse Rapids fish ladder and hydro dam, a kayaking area (see super photos), and a skateboard park are only a few blocks away, and trails on the surrounding hills and on Grey Mountain are even closer. Please ask Greg or see the Whitehorse City Guide for directions to these wonderful places.   Back to top of page
