We stayed in the 2-bedroom unit, which was spacious yet cozy, well furnished, and very comfortable. Their property is delightful to walk around, see their huskies, an Arctic Hare came through looking... More

The cabins were adorable and comfortable. It was nice that there separate rooms for added privacy. Breakfast was excellent! I'm looking forward to taking my next group of clients to Wiseman! Thanks for the hospitality!

The two bedroom cabin where I stayed was very comfortable. It included a kitchenette complete with a range for cooking. If you are staying for a... More

There's not much more that I can add to the previous very positive reviews that describe Bernie and Uta's hospitality, well equipped cabins and quiet and pleasant remote environment. Their breakfasts are delicious but make sure that if you staying here, you bring something to cook for dinner, You will be far better off cooking your own food than eating... More

I've stayed at the cabins at Arctic Getaway a number of times, and it's always wonderful. The cabins are beautifully built, cozy, warm and clean. The hosts, Uta and Bernie are sweet, helpful, knowledgeable, fascinating... I love hearing their stories of living a subsistence lifestyle off the grid. March 2015 I saw the most amazing Aurora ever when staying with... 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.
