“…Great breakfast food, reliable internet, heating and water systems make staying at Mo’s Houseboat B&B a relaxing, peaceful and memorable experience…”


Each unit has its own private kitchen and bath with a queen bed and fold-down couch. These spaces are very roomy for 2 people and have a comfortable fold down couch for a 3rd or 4th person.

Built in 2017, these two open-concept suites have separate entrances on opposite sides of the houseboat for your privacy. The mirror-imaged units boast airy vaulted ceilings with a thoroughly sound-proofed common wall. Each kitchen is complete with a large stovetop, a fridge and kitchen essentials. The bathroom contains a large shower, personal sink and easy-to- use-toilet. Make breakfast at your leisure with fresh and abundant ingredients provided by Mo’s.

SunRise Suite (East Facing)

Move your chairs around from the south side to sit or eat in the blazing morning sun or watch to watch aurora.

View of your large open concept room as you walk in. Your fold down couch provides another bed.

View from the kitchen area.

Your private bathroom contains a large shower and funky tiny sink with waterfall faucet.

SunSet Suite (West Facing)

Enjoy the sunset with your dinner.

Large open concept room with great views.

As in the SunRise suite, the couch folds down, providing additional sleeping options.

Large shower and easy to use, odourless off-grid toilets in both suites.

April and May are great times to visit too!

As long as the night-time is dark (we are within the region of the midnight sun) the northern lights are visible. If you would like to experience a snowy northern visit during warmer, not-so-cold weather, come in April! If you are ok with walking on the ice to the B&B instead of driving, extend the possibilities of your stay until mid-May.

IF YOU HAVE A 6AM RETURN FLIGHT DURING OPEN-WATER SEASON, it is required that you find accommodations on land for the night before you leave Mo’s. Mo’s only begins power-boating guests back to shore for check-out starting at 7am so as not to disturb the other guests and residents of Houseboat Bay.

There is NO WATER TAXI in Yellowknife bay and Mo’s does not provide water taxi. Mo’s will only ferry you over with the power boat for check-in, check-out and during inclement weather such as strong wind or heavy rain.

If you cannot paddle a canoe and instead plan to remain on the houseboat for the duration of your stay, you MUST have all your groceries before Mo’s comes to the dock with the power boat to pick you up at check-in, due to your inability to paddle to shore the next day. If you have a flight coming in later than 7:30 (the grocery store closes at 8), it is best to stay at a hotel the night before you arrive at Mo’s.

Payment Policy – We require your first night to be paid to hold your reservation through PayPal, Visa or Mastercard. Please settle accounts upon checking in, thank you. All prices include tax.

Cancellation Policy:  Your deposit will be refunded minus a $100 cancellation fee if within 4 – 8 weeks of your booking date. You will receive your full refund within two months of your booking date. Within a month, there is no refund of your deposit.
A non-refundable deposit of 25% is required for 2 week reservations or more within 6 weeks of cancelation.
It is dangerous to canoe the Great Slave lake with very amateur or no canoeing skills as the water is very cold. During open-water season, if you arrive with not having been honest about your canoeing skills, regretfully, your reservation will be cancelled with no refund.

Minimum stay:  Two nights

Check in: 2pm

Check out: 11am

When NOT to book: During break up of the ice (end of May to first week of June), and fall freeze up (last week of October-first week of November), Mo’s Houseboat B&B is closed due to unsafe ice conditions.
