About the Cabin Lake AreaYukon Cabins for rent, Yukon Cabin Rentals


Cabin Lake is situated a short 50-minute drive southeast of Whitehorse. The Last 12 km of the drive is on gravel roads, before arriving at a secluded location on the shores of Cabin Lake. Our property is the only private land holding on the lake. There is no road access to the lake except through our property and so it is a very private and quiet location. Our wilderness property and the surrounding land offers a true retreat from modern life.
Cabin Lake is approximately 1 mile long ( 1.6 km) and is naturally spring fed with no out-flowing or inflowing creeks. It reaches a maximum depth of 20 meters or 65 feet. The lake is stocked by the owners with arctic char, a very sought-after northern fish known for its delicious dark-red flesh. On the way into Cabin Lake there is another small lake that has natural populations of northern pike.  The Yukon River, which parallels the road for several kilometers, is home to pike and arctic grayling.
In the countryside surrounding our cabins you will find true Yukon wilderness. A roadless area of more the 850 square kilometers starts at the edge of our cabin. Moose, woodland caribou, wolves, black and brown bears live in the surrounding area. Wolves and caribou are common visitors to Cabin Lake in the winter.
In the summer the following activities are available at the cabin; fishing, canoeing, hiking, swimming and birding. In the winter cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, aurora borealis viewing, and snow sliding are available. If you have the motivation to shovel some snow, Cabin Lake can be transformed into a wilderness skating rink.

A Word on Mosquitoes

In the area surrounding Cabin Lake there are numerous other small uninhabited lakes, and as such there is adequate habitat for mosquitoes to breed. The mosquitoes can be quite thick in June and diminish as the summer goes on. August is almost bug free. During the day the mosquitoes are not often a concern during July and August, however, people’s individual tolerance to bugs varies considerably. If there is direct sunshine and or a breeze off the lake than the bugs will be minimal during the day. However, if it is humid ( after a rain) and the air is still, the bugs can be strong even in the middle of the day. The mosquitoes tend to get thick when the sun is setting, but remember the sun does not set until very late so often you will be in bed already before the mosquitoes get aggressive.  If you have a low tolerance for mosquitoes, than you would be best to avoid June completely.

A Word on Our Wilderness Road

The last 7 km of roadway into our cabin is quite rough. It is best suited for a 4x4 but is doable with a 2-wheel drive that has medium ground clearance. It requires you to travel slowly. We recommend that our cabins are best used for people looking for a real wilderness retreat, rather than as lodgings for daily excursions around the Yukon. For that purpose one would be better served by accommodation closer to the highway.

A Word on Winter

Winter time special considerations at our cabins. The road is not kept free of snow during the winter so access to the cabins is by ski, snowshoe or snowmobile. We can provide delivery to the cabin by snowmobile for an additional fee or rent you a snowmobile with which to access the cabins. Snowshoe rentals are also available. The area is sensitive caribou habitat so we do not rent the cabin to people whose primary focus is to drive around on their snowmobiles. The snowmobiles are a tool for access.
The portion of the road that will need to be snowmobiled or skied is 7km in length and takes 15 minutes by snowmobile or 1 -2 hours by ski or 2-3 hours by snowshoe depending on your abilities. Typically the cabin will need to be accessed by ski or snowmobile from The first of November to April 20th each year.
Renters of our cabins during the winter need to have good fire starting skills and understand fully how to safely manage a wood-burning stove. They need to be comfortable to travel in winter conditions by themselves into the cabin etc.
Cell phones that work in the Yukon will work at our cabin, however, smart phones may not have their full range of services.
Water is not provided so you can either choose to bring in your own, or use the provided ice auger to cut a hole in the lake to retrieve water. Snow can be melted on the wood stove for dish water and all cleaning needs. The water from the lake should be brought to a full boil in order to consider it safe for drinking or you can bring along a water treatment product.
For weekend stays we do not provide information on how to light the propane fridge but instead have clients used snow in bags in a provided cooler to provide adequate cooling for your cooler. Anything that is required to remain frozen can be left outside in the lid of the barbecue.
Lighting in the cabins are provided by a single propane lamp in the main room so headlights are essential for the nighttime for the bedrooms.
If you are renting the “Trappers Cabin” please note that it takes from 3 to 8 hours to reach comfortable temperatures due to the fact that it is made of logs and has a high thermal mass. So, if you are traveling with small children they will need to stay in their outer layers for a while and you will need to keep adding wood to the stove while you drive the cold out of the logs. However, once the cabin is up to a warm temperature it is easy to keep very pleasant.
The “Hill top Cabin” can be brought up to a nice temperature is 1-2 hours depending on the temperature when you arrive.

Please note: On longer stays we will provide information on how to light the refrigerator. For an additional fee our staff can come to the cabin to give you an in-depth orientation if you do not have northern skills, ( how to run a stove, chop wood, use an ice auger etc. etc.




The Following Items are Standard in all Summer Cabin Rental Packages:

Please Note:  There are no shower facilities at Cabin Lake and no indoor washrooms, only outhouses. The lake is warm enough for short swims from the dock, and warm water for personal hygiene can be warmed in your cabin on the stove. Potable drinking water is provided in blue 5 gallon jugs for the duration of your stay.  For long term rentals jugs will have to be refilled in Whitehorse, at any of several public drinking water locations.  The water that can be retrieved from the lake is suitable for cleaning, bathing etc. and does not run out.
