The Lodge

Lodge Upstairs - Rahela Jagric

Blachford Lake Lodge was acquired in 1981 by the current owner, Canadian and long time Yellowknife-resident Mike Freeland, who has been committed throughout to conserving the area’s land, water and natural resources.  Comprising just one cabin initially, Mike has since added four more guest cabins and, in 1999, the custom-designed lodge, built from locally harvested spruce, and incorporating solar panels, The lodge building is oriented so that the roof overhang and half the windows face south. This provides shade in the summer and heat through the windows in the winter. A tour of the lodge facilities is part of your Blachford stay.

Our guest facilities include free wireless internet, hot tub, sauna, and Aurora-watch wake-up service.  Unusually for a remote lodge accessible from Yellowknife, our main building includes running hot water and showers, as well as comfortable hotel-style toilets. Full details of our  hotel rooms inside the lodge, as well as our rustic cabins can be found on our accommodation page. These log cabins provide a special blend of comfort and adventure, taking you back to the days of the fur-trappers, European pioneers and indigenous peoples who helped make northern Canada the vibrant, yet still timeless place that it is today.  

Your visit to Blachford begins with thrilling step back into Canada’s history: a 20-minute bush-plane flight from Yellowknife, landing on Blachford Lake, in an aircraft equipped with skis in winter, or floats in the summer. Read about the exciting bush-plane flight from Yellowknife.

This is the teepee up at Blachford Lake Lodge. I remember a fantastic evening up there listening to a Dene, first nations man, telling us some old stories about the past and the reliance upon the caribou migration for their survival.
