Your hosts, Bernie and Pam Phillips

The Historical Guest House is located in downtown Whitehorse close to all of the amenities the town has to offer. The 2 story log house was built in 1907 by Mike and Tony Cyr for the "real" Sam McGee. All of it's historical charm is intact.


The Cyr House (pronounced "Sear")  was lifted up in 1999 and a new basement suite was added. We call this the "Cyr Suite".  Upstairs on the top floor are 2 bedrooms - the "Rose Room" and the "Green Room" - and they each have a private washroom downstairs on the Main Floor. The main floor also has a kitchen, a living room with cable TV, and an office with free local telephone calls. There is free WiFi throughout the house and in the garden.


Historical Guest House is for the independent and reasonably self-sufficient traveller who likes all the amenities and comforts of home when travelling. We welcome you as a guest and a friend. We want you to feel comfortable and at home. Food is provided for a self-serve continental breakfast - a variety of hot and cold cereals, whole wheat bread for toast, a variety of jams and peanut butter, tea and coffee. Let us know if you have special dietary needs.


It is called self-serve because guests are free to eat breakfast on their own schedule. Since the kitchen is communal it is also available for cooking at any time of the day. We want you to feel comfortable going into the fridge and the cupboards to find what you need. There is room in the house and in the garden under the gazebo for socializing, as well as privacy. We live in the green log house right next door.
