We didn't stay in the lodge, but came for the viewing. My mom and I had been to a couple other Aurora viewing venues and this one was hands down the best. I wouldn't waste my time at the other viewing spots - you just can not do better than this place. Mok was wonderful, the cabin was warm and... More

What else can I say?!!! We finally got the opportunity to visit The Lodge and it was a beautiful experience. The location is just perfect.... Mok and His family are super kind and sweet. We saw the Auroras one night and I can't wait to come back.

With three prior stays at this lodge, I knew this was where I wanted to be for my fourth trip to Fairbanks March 2014. The lodge is located on Cleary Summit 20 miles north of Fairbanks and offers a gorgeous panoramic daytime view of rolling hills and the White Mountains, and it is a pleasure to watch the light and...

I wanted to stay at this lodge soooo much.... but... it books out up to 18-24 months in advance... and with excellent reason!!! From the lodge rooms you have a private deck facing north for the best possible views! The owner will call you if the lights begin their beautiful dance so you won't miss it. However.... if you are... More

I've read just about every review on this website (Yelp, too) and I think it's a testament to Mok & Logan to receive so many consistent reviews. They are definitely doing something right. True to form, they exceeded our expectations during our stay this week. The room we were in was fantastic, as I'm sure they all are. We stayed... More

We didn't stay here but came up for the Northern Lights viewing in the lodge - what a great deal!. We had our own car so it was just $25 per person for the visit. Hot beverages, comfy couches and great company while we waited for the lights to appear. The lodge had a great outdoor porch for viewing -... More

Our stay at the lodge was super! The accommodations are very comfortable and the view out the north facing window is great. Even the daytime view is beautiful. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. Seeing the lights was easy and Mok does a wonderful job of making your stay memorial.

We had a wonderful stay in January where we were lucky to see the lights on both nights of our stay. Mok and his family have created not only the perfect viewing area to see the lights but rooms that are very comfortable with everything you could need. During the day there were snowshoes and sleds for our use and... More

If you want the best chance to see the aurora borealis without sitting in a car all night at -11 degrees, this is the place to stay. The room was clean and nicely decorated in an austere style. Large windows face north and walkie-talkies are there to notify or be notified when the lights are showing. Mok explained that, if... More

The aurora are elusive and while we were there during a quiet aurora we still got to see the lights and we got our picture taken by Mok with the Aurora in the background. We could only get two nights booked, but it was so great we drove back for the evening viewing with the hope of seeing the lights... More
