Q. How do I get to A Taste of Alaska Lodge?

We recommend that our guests rent a car while staying with us. We unfortunately do not have a shuttle service. Most of the major car rental companies have facilities at Fairbanks International Airport.


Although roads are kept clear of snow, and our driveway is plowed during the winter months, (October 1st to May 1st), you will need to rent a car with All-Wheel Drive (AWD) or Four-Wheel Drive (4WD) during that time.


If renting a car is not a possibility, guests can take a RideShare service to the Lodge. A ride from Fairbanks International ranges from $35-50, and from downtown Fairbanks $20-35.


We recommend either Uber or Lyft. Check their website for price estimators

Q. Does the Lodge have cooking facilities for the guests to use?

In the Main Lodge we do not have a kitchen for guest use, but there is a refrigerator and microwave for guests in the dining area. However, the Log House, the Spruce House and the Cottage have full kitchens.

Q. Do you have internet service?

We have limited WiFi available. Wireless phone receptions are at 4G LTE speeds. There is also a computer and printer in the main dining room available for guest use.

Q. We are celebrating a special occasion while staying with you. Can we arrange to have flowers, champagne, gift baskets, etc., put in our room before arrival?

Yes, we can arrange all of that. Just give us a call in advance.

Normally, we get our first snow that “sticks” in October. Sled dog tours typically begin in November, depending on snowfall and trail condition.

Q. Do you have cold weather gear for guests to use?

Yes, we have cold weather gear for our guests to rent. Our outfits include snow boots, snow pants, and a parka, for $15 a day. If you are looking to buy winter gear in Fairbanks, we have several outdoor stores. Or, if you are not looking to not spend a lot of money, try Value Village or The Salvation Army when you arrive in Fairbanks. Both thrift stores have a large selection of outdoor gear, for travelers on a budget.

We don’t have a washer and dryer for guests to use themselves, but we can do laundry for you for $15 a load.
