Your hosts, long-time Yukon residents, Sue and Rick Laberge are always pleased to welcome guests travelling for either business or pleasure to our home and Gold and Galena Bed and Breakfast in the Heart of the Yukon. We are open for business all year.
Gold and Galena Bed and Breakfast is located on a nicely treed, naturally landscaped lot in the Mayo Airport subdivision. (Less than a five minute drive from Mayo.) Colourful flower beds, hanging baskets and outdoor seating and barbeque area for our guests complete the scene in the summer. The circular drive and guest parking are well cleared of snow in the winter and vehicle plug-ins are available for our colder winter nights.
The separate entrance of the bed and breakfast leads into the nicely appointed common room, complete with large screen LED TV with multiple satellite channels, lounge chairs, couch, fridge, microwave, and convection oven. There is a selection of dvd movies, magazines and books available for guests to enjoy. Good wireless service is available at no extra charge. New improved service allows better cell phone coverage. We can provide fax service if required.
A continental breakfast counter features Midnight Sun coffee, a good selection of tea, fruit, homemade cranberry scones or banana bread, butter, jam and peanut butter for your toast. Milk, juice, yogurt, eggs and cheese are available in the fridge. Cold and hot breakfast cereals are also provided. We do the dishes!
Three comfortable bedrooms and the bath are accessed from the common room. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds, quality linins and duvet covers and a variety of pillow choices. There is good bedside lighting to snuggle in with a good book before a great sleep in our quiet country setting.
Sue and Rick are pleased to assist you in any way we can to make your stay at Gold and Galena Bed and Breakfast a pleasant one. If you have time we love to share a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of wine with you on our backyard deck in the evening and hear all about your adventures near and far.
