Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Bethel: 25.0 km
Railway: Portland: 70.0 km
Ferry: Portland: 70.0 km
We send driving directions once you reserve.

Please Note: We are on a ridge, two miles from the pavement. November - April, AWD/4WD is required, as the weather can quickly take a turn for the worst! Snow, ice, mud, wind.... this is an outpost... that’s what makes it so cool! We don't sand the road; you need to be able to get yourselves in and out. If we can help, we will.

We do not issue refunds for weather-related issues, but may at our discretion, offer you vouchers for future visits.
