If you are planning an Alaska vacation, and prefer intimate places, and encounters with local Alaskans, then consider a visit with us at the Arctic Getaway. We offer classic Alaska accommodations in three rustic and cozy, furnished private cabins, each with a kitchenette. In the morning we invite our guests into our home, the 1910 gold rush dance hall, for a hearty, home-cooked Alaskan Breakfast. Guests may cook their lunch and dinner meals in the cabin kitchenettes. Please keep in mind that we live in a very remote region and far away from urban civilization including groceries/liquor stores, power plants, hospitals, cell phone coverage, etc.. Electric power is generated on site by photo-voltaic panels, windmill, and back-up generator; please inform us about special power needs. Our internet is provided by a Hughesnet satellite dish. The connection is very, very slow and has a very, very small daily download allowance; and sometimes does not work at all. Our guests can buy usage during breakfast in the breakfast room.
Check-in 4:00-9:00 P.M. | Check-out 11:00 A.M.
Although not guaranteed, early check-in is often possible. Please notify us if you will be arriving after 9:00 P.M.)
What Our Guests Say
" So, guest-houses are guest-houses all over the world, nicht wahr? Luxury, comfort, kindness, situation may be first-class. But ARCTIC GETAWAY is SPECIAL. Why? It's the people and the place.
