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.
