We stayed in early Decemeber 2016 for 4 nights as a family and were blessed to see the lights every night! This is a superb location to view the lights as there is no light pollution, unblocked views and apparently, the chances of clear skies appear to pretty high here. We stayed in Cedar Lodge upper floor rooms which had large windows facing where the lights usually have their display. Our room was very clean, spacious, well appointed and warm. Loved the heated toilet seats! The fully equipped kitchen even had a rice cooker! There's a walkie talkie set in each room for to buzz us in the middle of the night when the lights come on.
Mok, the lodge's wonderfully gracious owner, helped us set up our camera and also took some great family photos on his camera for a small fee. The main viewing lodge was well stocked with hot drinks and cookies. Excellent alternative to zip in out of a warm and cozy place to catch the lights if you don't want to do it from your room.
Look no further if you want the perfect place to view the northern lights.
