Wild and cultivated flowers adorn the landscaped grounds of this 105-acre resort bordering the Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. The Alaska Bird Observatory, a local nonprofit that researches and promotes the conservation of Alaska's birds, is headquartered here, and trails at the 75-acre Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary connect with ones at the waterfowl refuge. The Fountainhead Antique Automobile Museum, one of the world's finest car museums, is also on the property.
Free evening events include mushing programs, live owl presentations, and screenings of Alaskan movies. All accommodations 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. A free shuttle transports guests to the resort's sister hotels, the Bridgewater and the Sophie Station Suites, and to downtown Fairbanks, the Alaska Museum of the North, and shopping spots.
