Wedgewood Resort Review

Both wild and cultivated flowers adorn the landscaped grounds of the Wedgewood Resort, which borders on Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. Headquartered on the resort is the Alaska Bird Observatory, a local nonprofit that researches and promotes the conservation of Alaska's birds. The property also houses the Fountainhead Antique Automobile Museum, considered to be one of the finest car museums in the world. Nearby, you'll also find a replica of a miner's cabin, a bush plane, and informative signage dotting the trails of the resort's Wildlife Sanctuary. Evenings feature free presentations including mushing programs, a live owl presentation, and Alaskan movies in the interpretive center. All rooms are suites with full kitchens. The Bear Lodge hotel—also part of the resort—has 157 large rooms available in summer, as well as a nice restaurant. The free Around Town Express shuttles visitors to the resort's sister hotels (the Bridgewater and Sophie Station Hotel), downtown Fairbanks, the Alaska Museum of the North, and local shopping spots.
