We spent a week in Dease Lake and stayed at The Arctic Divide. We spent a fair bit of time with the owners of The Arctic Divide, Derek and Sophia, and their beautiful family. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Typically, we work during the day, and take a break to work-out or take a walk, and then work again in the evening until about 9 when we watch ‘our show’ on Netflix or Prime Video. If it’s been a couple days since we’ve ‘been out’ we will go to a local attraction or national park. In Dease Lake, there are no local attractions other than the great outdoors, which suits us just fine. We took a long walk each day. The scenery is magnificent. We walked to the lake on the trail Derek was building (he is a professional trail-maker). We walked to the one and only grocery store a couple times and we walked to pick up pizza at the only pizza joint (the other hotel) once. Everything in town is in walking distance – we never drove our car once while we were there.
