If you are looking for a place to see the northern lights this is the place to go! If you like being in the middle of nowhere, then this is the place for you. There is no cell service and little to no WiFi. But don’t let that stop you. They have plenty of stuff to keep you busy! There is cross country skiing and snow machines. It’s also nice just to relax and talk to other guests. Eric and Heather are the perfect hosts. They will do whatever they can to make your stay perfect. You will get 3 meals a day. I think I actually gained a few pounds. They have all the winter gear to keep you warm. Since we were there in the winter, we stayed in the winter lodge. The rooms have a sink, tub and a toilet. There is a community shower. I describe it to my friends like being at camp as a kid. Jane was so sweet. She was the one that would stay up at night and watch for the Northern Lights. That was the reason we picked this place. We were lucky enough to see them one night. It was amazing! So if you are looking to get away and have the best home cooked meals then this is the place for you!
