I spent 4 nights here with a Road Scholar program after being in Fairbanks for 4 nights. We loved our stay there & didn't mind not having cell phone or internet service. It was a wonderful place to relax & enjoy the snow. Unfortunately it was cloudy every night, so we didn't get to see the aurora, but soaking in the hot spring lake surrounded by snow was wonderful. We stayed in the older lodges where the rooms were small but adequate. The restaurant is a charming log building divided into several small dining rooms that seemed uniquely Alaskan. The food was delicious, although pricey being a captive audience. When we returned to Fairbanks we missed our "Chena salads" with the fresh tomatoes & lettuce. The staff, mostly young college grads, were all friendly & enjoyed talking with the guests. I would love to return sometime in the summer to see what it's like without snow, but we thoroughly enjoyed our snowy experience.
