Display their FAQs



1/ DO I have to cook our own breakfast? 

Answer: Yes! At Embleton House guests stay out until two three or four in the morning watching the Aurora. Others are leaving between 4 Am and 6 Am to catch international flights. This way every one eats when they want and what they want. No one wants to get up for breakfast before they need to. 

2/ What do you supply for breakfast? Answer: We supply eggs, bacon, bread, fruit, three kinds of cold cereal and hot cereal, milk, coffee juice.


3/ Do we have to take a tour to see the Aurora? 

Answer: No, you can see the aurora from anywhere when the sky is clear. It is best when there is no light pollution and this includes full moon. 

4/ What time does the aurora come out? 

Answer: I would like to say i turn on the aurora switch every night at 9 PM but the truth of the matter is it is out almost every-night but you may not see it if it is cloudy. When it is dark and the sky is clear most often you will get a viewing of it.  It can be there one minute or for hours. Sometimes it appears and disappears quickly depending on the solar winds. If you really want to see it you need to stay out there or you will miss it. 

5/ What kind of cloths do i need? 

Answer: You need warm cloths when you go out in winter. I suggest layered clothing and good foot wear and warm socks. You should have a hoodie with a draw string. I find wearing one under a coat and being able to tie the hood around your neck to keep the wind out, really helpful. You will need a good hat, mitts, wind pants, long under-ware. Long sleeved shirts are also great.

6/ What to wear indoors in winter:You will want warm socks and slippers, long pants and long sleeves. Often when you come in from out-doors you will be chilled. Northerners when this happens layer up their clothing. Heating is expensive so rather then turn up the heat most do this and helps get rid of the chills, quickly. 

7/ In Summer our temperatures can be as warm as +35 but they does not last long. Our normal summer temperature is about 21 to 27 C. 

8/ Do you have rooms service: 

Answer: not like a hotel: In the shared guest apartment every day we clean the shared kitchen living room and bathroom and empty the garbage. 

We replenish breakfast foods daily. 

Guests in private bedrooms  look after their own rooms. We change led sheets and clean private bedrooms every seven days.  Guest had access to fresh towels as needed. We clean kitchen, living room and bathroom everyday. 

The private suites: When guests go out

(or when we see their shoes gone from the foyer) We enter the suite and clean them, make the bed if necessary, and replenish breakfast foods and linens as needed. 

Note: Because you are welcome to provide your own food for lunch and supper and cook here we don't do dishes in shared kitchen or in privates suites guests are required to wash dry and put away their own dishes.
