Uta was an absolute gem just like her cabins. My parents, husband, and I stayed in the Koyukuk cabin and it was plenty of space. When she warms you that the cabin is very well insulated and to not leave the heat on too long, she is totally right! You will not be cold here even though you are in the Arctic circle! This is a great place to serve as a hub to go explore the Arctic circle, Coldfoot Camp, Wiseman, and the other surrounding areas.

We visited from Fairbanks for a 4-day getaway and only wished it could have been longer. The Wolverine cabin is adorable, warm, and has everything you need. Berni regaled us with hilarious and epic stories of their life off grid in the gorgeous wilds of the Brooks Range. There is so much to do and see in this area. We just might have to move there someday.... thanks Berni and Uta!

I stayed here for four nights in March 2020. I cannot say enough good things about my stay. First, the hosts Uta & Berni are just wonderful. Not only are they mindful of your needs and comfort, they are just really nice folks. I stayed solo in the Wolverine Cabin. It was just right. It had two comfortable beds, a kitchenette and a bathroom that is shared with another cabin (if it's occupied). A delicious breakfast is complimentary. The grounds are perfect for a stay off the grid. The scenery is nothing short of spectacular with ample opportunity to hike or snowshoe. I even went dog sledding with a local guide who lives less than 1/4 mile away. You can't go wrong here.

We spent 3 nights staying in their lovely warm cabins while we explored Arctic Alaska. The cabins were very well fitted out with comfortable beds & small but well kitted kitchens. This was the perfect spot to explore from. The breakfast was superb & so filling! I definitely recommend this spot for folks who wish to explore rugged Alaska.

Planing this drive through Alaska and Canada was daunting to say the least. BUT ! It could not have been easier. Coming across the Arctic Getaway was the most pleasing part of our drive up to Prudhoe Bay, Our only regret was we did not stay 4 nights , we only stayed one, The best way is 2 nights if you are venturing to P>Bay. And 2 nights on the way back. The most delightful people are Berni and Uta this is what i call hospitality. It’s what the Dutch call Behaaglijk never had pancakes before Uta makes the best Yummy!! Unfortunately we did not see the northern lights but everything at this property made up for that. Thanks you Berni and Uta You are the best. Steven and Therese Hall 12th September2019 oh yes great weather too.

What a great find! If you’re looking for authenticity, comfort and great pancakes for breakfast, this is the place to be! Please make the effort to drive just north of Coldfoot to Wiseman to experience ‘old’ Alaska at its best! The icing on the cake was the northern lights - truly magical!

There are not many businesses with 5.0 ratings on Trip Advisor, but this one deserves it! Very friendly owners, great location, there is just no options for lodging and breakfast in this remote part of the world, like this one!

Services are pretty scarce along the Dalton Highway (DH), so we were very pleased and surprised to find a lovely, comfortable cabin waiting for us at the end of the long day. It had instant hot water for a nice shower, pots and pans for meals, and comfy chairs out front for relaxing. Uta and Bernie are great and welcoming hosts and gave us a lot of tips for enjoying the rest of our trip. A beautiful river walk with mountain backdrop is just across the street, and don't miss the lovely old chapel just down the street. For a finale, Uta prepared great sourdough pancakes and more for breakfast. You can stay in a bed-and-nothing spartan dorm room elsewhere or you can have a comfortable, affordable, unique experience with long-time Alaskans. We greatly enjoyed the latter.

Go on the extra few miles to Wiseman and stay at the lovely bed n breakfast with Uta and her family. And don't stay just one night. Stay at least 2. You will need to rest after the long drive from Fairbanks the first night (you should stop at Coldfoot and partake of the evening buffet that starts at 5pm on the way to Wiseman). The next day, after a lovely breakfast, you will have the whole day to yourself to go hiking, or a combination of hiking and a drive up to the Anaktuvuk Pass (while the highest pass in N.America, it is an easy climb since the road is designed for truckers). Btw, breakfast is special as either Uta or her husband will spend time with you answering questions about living there year round and any other thing they have learned in 36 years.

Uta and Bernie are great hosts. If you want to hear first hand about living above the Arctic Circle stay here. Clean, comfortable, affordable in one of the most remote areas of America. They live here year around and only go to Fairbanks every 2-3 weeks for supplies. If we come back to see the Northern lights we will stay here again.
