Rustic beauty

The Lodge is about 20 miles from downtown Fairbanks, but if you don’t mind being out of the city, this is idea, especially at this time of year. This is not a “cookie cutter” hotel, but it has the basic necessities. If you’re looking for the Ritz, don’t come here! However, it DOES have spectacular scenery of the mountains and of the night sky (even though there’s not much “night” at this time of year!). Breakfast (eggs how you want them, bacon, and waffles or pancakes) is made & served by Max every morning between 8 & 9. Delicious! Rooms are small, but you won’t be in them much. They are not soundproof, and the floors creak, but the building is historic, so it comes with the territory. All in all, an excellent experience.

Rustic lodge with the feel of old mine camp. Rustic but clean and run by family that cares.

Super small room !

Outside appearance was super poor.. Road in was terrible..no one was there to check us in for 45 min. Breakfast was not served till 9 am so we missed it due to having to leave earlier. Not worth what they charge.

Sorry you were disappointed. The roads were awful in June with all the breakup mud.

Historic Lodge

We only spent one night at this comfortable and rustic lodge, but the service provided was great and we truly enjoyed it. Will definitely try to stay again.
