I stayed at this place for 3 nights last year. The northern lights room is on the 2nd floor equipped with a private batch, luggage storage room. You can easily check Aurora from the window every night. I did see the Aurora there!! If you are here to chase Aurora, it is definitely one of best places to stay in...

To start with communication before the visit was very clear and friendly, as was the welcome. The room was extremely comfortable and well appointed and the view from the cottage was awe inspiring - even if Denali was hiding. Kathy was friendly and as inclusive. Breakfast was definitely worth a recommendation.

I do appreciate all the technology and ways to keep the communication with my guests open and on-going. I love sharing this amazing home. I strive to keep you as comfortable as possible.

We stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast for 3 nights. All the beds and furniture were super comfy and the house has heating flooring so we were nice and warm the whole time. Location is outside of town about 20 minutes so make sure you grab and necessities in town before you head out to this retreat. Kathy was...

I really enjoy the winter months with my guests. There is still so much to see and do...especially watching the northern lights. Making a hot breakfast and sitting around the table enjoying stories of the guests travels are always delightful. The heated floors make this large space cozy. I am always willing to build a warm, cozy fire in the...

The property is perfectly located for our goal in this trip, far enough from the city so we did not have light pollution when photographing the Aurora Borealis, but not so far away that it would be difficult to be in touch with the city's attractions (museums, restaurants, shops, Yukon Quest, etc...)

Thank you for your kind words. It was a special weekend! I was delighted to take you along to watch the exciting start of the Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race. It was wonderful to share the ins and outs of the race, the mushers, and the premium locations to spot the mushers as they began the 1,000 mile race! You...

We stayed in the Northern Lights room in mid-January for my birthday. The room was fantastic, I slept like a baby (when I wasn't peeking out the window looking for the Auroras). The jacuzzi tub was stellar, and YES we actually did see the lights from the tub!!! Kathy was absolutely great, such a character, and hilarious!!! Plus she makes...

I am so glad you enjoyed your birthday! The Northern Lights Room is definitely the room to choose during the aurora viewing season in the winter. The aurora generally appears outside the west window where the Jacuzzi tub is situated and dances northward where is can be viewed from your cozy bed. Though the aurora can be viewed from the...

As the host at A Moose in the Garden B&B and Vacation Rental, I often get an opportunity to read the poetry of Robert Service to many of my guests. Many people recognize his work and some have even memorized a poem or two in school. He is a renowned poet of the Yukon and wrote many poems about the...

Kathy is a friendly, warm, and wonderful host. The property is beautiful, clean, with gorgeous views extending to Denali from the back porch. Sunday breakfast was perfectly poached eggs over asparagus on garlic toast with hollandaise and a side of bacon with delicious coffee and OJ. We lucked out with the Aurora in full effect on our first night, and...

I love it when guests return at a different season of year for another completely different experience in Fairbanks, Alaska. There is no higher praise for me than to see people return to my B&B. I am continuing to improve my property and just recently purchased the land and cabin across the road. The big excitement for me there is...

One of the most authentic experiences we've had here in AK. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for peace and quiet in beautiful and serene surroundings. Breakfast was simply excellent too! I'm so glad we stayed here and will certainly return.

The only reason I did not rate this B&B excellent was that this was our 4th B&B of the trip and the other 3 were off the scale. We would stay at Moose in the Garden again in a heartbeat. By any measure the stay was comfortable and the hospitality engaging. We had the 2 downstairs rooms and shared a...
