Taste Of Alaska Review Oct 31, 2022 Whoo Hoo! What a great Aurora Viewing Trip. I have been back here more than several times…¿ 8 ? WHY , YOU ASK? Well yeah we see Aurora of course. But it’s the Family owned/run place that makes it so special. Kory runs it with a bit of help from his Wild mom Debbie ( look on my YouTube!Ha!) and Dad King Dave. Plus various staff. It is a whole family affair. The Grandparents homesteaded a while back nd now Kory shares it with anyone who happens to find it. WHICH IS EASY. WHAT DO I DO? Go on his booking site, hurry up, it is popular, fills up sometimes a year in advance, even though he’s got a 8 room lodge and several cabins with kitchens. SO BOOK at least 3 nights, gives you like 90% chance to see Aurora. I have never been skunked. …close one year, ??¿ hmm Oct…snowed for 4 days, then our group of 12 just said ==> YOU GOT TO DO THE CHAIR TIME<=== Only thing you can control is staying awake and KEEP LOOKING UP. So we did some shifts, every 20 min woke up..snow,,,snowing…then like 3:30 am I just walk do walk down to the outdoor’cabin/“yurt” deck and sit. WELL IT STOPPED SNOWING ..I notice some weird clearing to far west….as if FIREHOSES are shoving the total cloud cover away…… Ask friend Hey take a pic over, way over there….ah HA…GREEN..= Aurora. Sure enough that stuff seemed like it just pushed the Entire covering clouds away. WEST TO EAST. Lasted 3+ hours…three highway stripes…with “elbow twisted sisters” at end. Gad. First time I ever went in to sleep when still it was working…¿ or was that the March before. Anyway. Kory’s is a bed and breakfast. YUP Hard to get up..until you sniff the food wafting around. Hugest Steak for dinner if you are lucky he cooks some nights too. ======== SEE HERE IS THE DEAL===== it’s 15 minutes from FAI AIRPORT, arrive at night, sit on right side to see lights from air. LAND. YOU. ARE. ALREADY. UP.. Plus SEE HIS ROOMS HAVE DOORS RIGHT OUTSIDE, NO weird lights, put in blinds, etc, ALERT SYSTEM. ALL. SO at night at 2 am…I take 3 steps out with my sonicare …look up…HEY MOM…COME OUT! There’re STREAKS SCREAMING THROUGH THE BIG DIP? …yup I’ve got my slippers on…..MOM now learns to keep close on in bed..age 89…she loves taking naps..THAT is what we do. ( plus dog sledding, snow shoe, Kory has em. He’s got Michelin Man suits and everything, GAD you don’t even have to bring clothes. I Do Not Make This Stuff Up.) SO Perfect LOCATION. PERFECT HOST FAMILY. = The SYSTEM. WE just got back after 5 night. Great nights, jaunts to Murphy Dome…. THERE ARE REASONS I BROUGHT 17 friends here!…
My son and I stayed here on a dream vacation. Came for the Aurora Borealis and we're not disappointed...great set up here for viewing. But this place is so much more. We stayed four nights in the log house and could see the Alaska pipeline running through the valley. One clear evening we even saw Denali! Owners are great. You really get a feeling of true Alaskan life here.
We spent 5 nights in the cabin and just had a fantastic stay. Kory and Debbie were fantastic host. The included breakfast was delicious. My wife and I really felt like we were Alaska homesteader with all the modern accommodations. We went for the northern lights and they did not disappoint.
We stayed in the Cottage one night. It was warm and cozy and full of interesting antiques. There was a complete kitchen and living room as well as a bedroom and bathroom. There were many thoughtful amenities like hiking poles, bear spray, a flashlight, and all the kitchen items you might need. There was a large window with a view of the Alaskan range, so when you sat in the arm chair or the sofa or at the table you could just admire the scenery. Breakfast in the morning was delightful and served in the large room in the lodge. We were able to sit at a table for two right next to one of the large windows that had a view of the Alaskan range. They have the best coffee we’ve had since arriving in Alaska. They have an alarm in the room that will ring if you wanted to if the Aurora decided by one of the guest, and that is what happened when we were there. This is a definite benefit so you don’t have to sit up all night yourself! I would definitely stay here again if I were back in the area.…
This is a lovely B&B just outside of Fairbanks that has a wonderful assortment of retro items that you cannot help but enjoy seeing. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and it was very quiet. We had a nice view of the back field and mountains in the distance. The homemade breakfast was wonderful and filling.
I spent two nights in a lodge room and two in a cabin. The accommodations are comfortable and attractive in a rural setting. The best part was the hosts who are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Nice view over the valley, and even a distant view of Denali. I thoroughly recommend A Taste of Alaska if you don't mind being outside of town.
Our group has stayed in this place for two nights. I've liked this place very much. Looks like the owners put a lot of effort to keep great looking and home like atmosphere of the lodge. They offer very good breakfast. The dining room is huge. It's a state of art! You can see hundreds of artefacts hanged on the wall off the ceiling or standing on the floor. They are very interesting. Our rooms were also decorated with the taste. The whole property also has an unique style. Has an areas for relaxing. I've really enjoyed this place. I recommend it. RomanP
We had the opportunity to stay 2 nights at A Taste of Alaska Lodge. The log cabin main lodge is very impressive being built from logs on the property. Our lodge room was very spacious and the breakfast served was great. Enjoyed speaking with the owners and hearing the history of the lodge
When visiting Fairbanks, staying at A Taste of Alaska Lodge is as logical as staying at casinos when going to Las Vegas. The Lodge sits on a vast homestead piece of land at the end of the road. You can see the majestic Alaska Range with Denali in clear view during the day from the dining room window. At night, you only need to step out from your room (most rooms have 2 doors) and walk 30+ steps into the expansive opening and look up into the night sky. If you come during the aurora viewing season, you shall see plenty of light show in spite of weather forecast (clouds come and go fast, seriously). We saw aurora EVERY NIGHT at THIS PLACE during our stay. The lodge proprietor, Kory, placed a dozen chairs in the opening for you to sit and watch because the aurora can rage on and on, or take a while to develop. As the temperature at night time is literally freezing, Kory built a warming hut a few years ago next to the chairs that you can stay between viewings. You can grab some tea / coffee / hot coco from the dining room if you want (or you can bury your beer in the snow. It gets very COLD very FAST!). The lodge website says (Alaska-strength) winter clothing is available for rent should you need some. If you ever fancy staying at a friend/relative's country house, A Taste of Alaska Lodge is like that. We arrived late in the evening to find fresh fruit and hot drinks in the dining room. When we came to the scrumptious breakfast the next morning, Debbie called out to welcome us. She inquired after most guests' activity plans and offered valuable insights (like: flying to some town in the Artic Circle and drive south is better for aurora viewing than the other way around. Or icy roads this morning going Chena Hot Spring). Kory also stopped by every table to chat. One night he was out in the warming hut with us as well monitoring 3 websites and timed the most fierce aurora showing. (Thank you, Kory!) He is definitely an aurora enthusiast and avid photographer. If you are a budget traveler, you should not walk but run to make your reservation at this lodge: most aurora viewing tours are priced above $100 per person which more than pays for the B&B here and the SUV rental depending on your group size. Honestly, the aurora you see in the opening by the lodge is the same you see on any mountain peak, without the treacherous winter night driving on your own or restrictive schedule (i.e. pick up at 10pm, drop off at 2am). In my humble opinion (ha ha ha), A Taste of Alaska is the epitome of the wild and beautiful Alaska, rugged and generous frontier families, and thriving entrepreneurism. Come to see the aurora and meet the people (unless you don't drive or don't want to drive)! P.S. We stayed in room 4. My husband locked eyes each morning with a heavily made up Elizabeth Taylor aggressively displaying her cleavage on the wall opposite to our bed. Oh well! Michelangelo's David has worn less.…
A Taste of Alaska Lodge was such a great place to kick off our 2-week Alaskan vacation! We stayed in The Log House for 3 nights and it was perfect for our family of 4 adults. The entire property is inviting and the cabin was so cozy and had all the comforts of home. Not to mention, there’s a bonus hot tub in the lower level of The Log House! Kory, Debbie and Dave were delightful hosts! We enjoyed chatting with Debbie at breakfast each morning. They were available to answer any questions about the lodge and Fairbanks in general. If you’re looking for the perfect spot to view the Aurora Borealis, this has to be it! We saw some faint glimpses of the lights the first night of our stay and the rest of the time it was overcast and snowy. The property is outfitted with a viewing yurt and notification system to alert guests in their accommodations of Aurora activity. There are also great printed resources available about the Aurora Borealis in general. Since we had just traveled from the Midwest and were adjusting to the time change, we opted to utilize the large deck in the front of The Log House as our viewing platform. That way we could just throw our jackets on over our pajamas when the lights were visible. What we didn’t see in the Auroras was made up by the whole experience of the property, gorgeous scenery and kind hospitality of the Eberhardts. We took advantage of a Paws for Adventure dog sledding tour which is located on the Eberhardt’s property. This was an absolute “bucket list” experience that we’ll never forget! We would highly suggest checking out their tours. Our musher/guide had run the Iditarod and many other races and she shared tons of great information about dog sledding! For some true Alaskan hospitality, we’d absolutely recommend a stay at A Taste of Alaska Lodge! We look forward a return trip in the future!…
