We stayed here as part of a photo tour with Hugh Rose and Patrick Endres for several nights in Oct. The cabins are great, comfortable and rustic at the same time. The kitchen was stocked with tea & coffee, the bathroom full of towels, and the beds cozy and warm. Bernie & Uta are friendly and knowledgeable, and welcomed us... More

We stayed here one night on September 9th. The place looks newly remodeled and has a rustic look to it but is a excellent place to stay. The owner greeted us and was very gracious. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.

Besides of stories about wildlife and hunting they had plenty of suggestions where to hike, to canoe, and where to go by car for a day ride/hike. Breakfast was delicious, served in the... More

We drove the bumpy, sometimes potted, Dalton Hwy. We arrived at the Arctic Circle Getaway to find a note from Berni and Uta, giving us directions to our unlocked accommodations and stating that they were out picking blueberries. How great and trusting is that? We stayed in the Wolverine cabin and found our accommodations delightful! Nobody was in the other... More

I stayed here for two nights in July with two friends. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Bernie and Uta who shared with us their excitement of living with the nature. The family built and decorated each cabin with craftsman quality, elegance and attention to details. The bathroom is modern and clean. This is by far the best accommodation we had... More

If you're thinking of taking a trip Northern Alaska-- you owe it to yourself to stay at the Arctic Getaway Bed and Breakfast in Wiseman, Alaska. The cabins are adorable and comfortable; the town is quaint-- and the Northern lights beyond belief. Uta and Bernie Hickers are long time residents of the area and terrific hosts.

Entering the village of Wiseman is like entering in a museum. It feels like time stoot still here. Old machinery, some old cars, and abandoned cottages , this is the setting of our stay here in this magical place . The Arctic Getaway B&B, called Igloo#8, is a fantistic place to stay. Owners Bernie and Uta are the perfect hosts.... More
