Holiday Rental House
The 'Springhills' house is a small, cozy one-bedroom place, available for your exclusive use, comfortably accommodating 2 people.

(Please note that the Hotsprings are CLOSED as of late Sept 2020 while they are transitioning from an old to a new facility.) The house is ideal for adventurers, business travellers, and guests seeking to explore the surrounding attractions and the extensive network of hiking and biking trails beginning at your doorstep, or watch the northern lights (aurora borealis) in the winter.

A quaint, VERY clean cozy cabin. The hot springs, coffee house are just skip away. Makes a great combo! Whitehorse is only 25 minutes away, with amazing Klondike history. There are countless hiking trails and amazing beauty everywhere! Owners really care about your stay.

About the neighbourhood
Miles of hiking, biking and ski trails off your front door... - 3-minute walk to the Hotsprings pools... - Bean North, a lovely Cafe and roaster in the woods is 15 min walk away... - Yukon Wildlife Preserve is close by (20 min walk)... The house is secluded, private and safe, situated in a forest of aspen and pine amid rolling hills. Go for an evening stroll on the Perimeter or Hilltop Trails and enjoy the stunning views across the vast Takhini River valley. Look for northern lights while soaking in the hot pool (when reopened) or enjoy them from your deck or from 'Observatory Hill', a five minute walk away. The Yukon Astronomical Society is setting up a small observatory there.
Getting around
There is no public transportation to and from here. We do not provide shuttle/pick-up service.
