Our Cabin Rentals

Cozy Log Cabins

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.


Aurora Viewing and Photography

Both summer and winter seasons deliver diverse and beautiful encounters with the Koyukuk River region. The aurora borealis dance across our winter skies, visible right from the windows of our cozy cabins! The summer sunlight gives endless hours for exploration and sightseeing.
