Rocket scientists from the nearby Poker Flat Research Range gather at this cedar lodge, as do mushers, snowmachiners, and local families. The eclecticism of the clientele is matched by the decor, which includes diamond willow lamps and bear, lynx, wolf, and other trophy heads and skins. Most of the thousands of Christmas lights at the lodge stay up year-round. The rooms generally have a double and single bed, a sink, and a TV; some have Wi-Fi. The toilets and showers are down the hall.
