The French Elegance in the Yukon Wilderness

We had such a relaxing time at Takhini Lodge. We felt so lucky to be able to enjoy the beauty of the Lodge and the lands around. Furnished with an artist's eye, the entire Lodge was a visual delight. We can't say enough about our hosts. Christiane's cooking in her open kitchen was fantastic and Jean-Marc helped us in every way.   Joan & Mel
