Fodor's Expert Review A Taste of Alaska Lodge

551 Eberhardt Rd., Fairbanks, Alaska, 99712, USA

Though just a 20-minute drive from Fairbanks, A Taste of Alaska is far enough outside town to make you feel as though you're at a wilderness retreat; the 280-acre property, graced with fields and forested woodlands, has great views of the Alaska Range to the south, and in winter you can see the northern lights. It's clear from the get-go that owner Kory Eberhardt was born to run this lodge, and he'll happily share stories of his family's life here: his grandfather homesteaded the property in 1947, and his parents built the lodge in 1992 with trees hewn from the property. Accommodations include a remote cabin, a two-story log home, and the main lodge. Collectibles decorate the rooms, with an endearing predilection for Elizabeth Taylor memorabilia. The room rate includes a sturdy and delicious breakfast, and Eberhardt offers dinner upon request. An extra bonus, the Paws for Adventure Sled Dog Tours mushing company is on the property, making it easy to enjoy a ride or more without straying far from your temporary home.
