Taste of Alaska is an excellent place to stay as well as to observe the aurora when there is high activity. The one issue is that their northern horizon is blocked significantly. However, it is all the other amenities that make up for any possible short coming. Each room has 2 double beds, radiant floor heating, TV (if you really want to use it), and free wifi. Their are sliding doors that let you out to watch aurora. Even when there is a lot of snow there is plenty of territory to walk about. Sometimes you can see moose.
There are 3 buildings. We stayed in the main building in room 1 for 2 nights. Breakfast and dinner were first class. It is all due to the care and attention by the owners who go out of their way to make every guest feel special. After sunrise you can see Mt. McKinley off in the distance on a clear day. Sweeping views to the east and south. The sky at night, when clear, is quite excellent for night viewing. They also have a sauna. Plenty of hot water and the room temperature is consistent.
It takes about 30 minutes to get here from the center of town but the trip is worth it. The decor is quirky antique. Even if you decide just to hang out the relaxing experience is well worth it.
