|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Whether traveling under the midnight sun or the aurora borealis you will find this peaceful setting a perfect base for your interior Alaskan vacation.
View the Alaska Range and Denali (Mt. McKinley) from the inside loft or relaxing on the grand outdoor deck. During dark, clear nights enjoy star gazing and the excitement of the aurora borealis unobstructed by city lights either inside or outside this well-appointed log home.
If booking the entire house you will sleep 8 people comfortably in 3 queen-size beds and 2 twin beds. All the bedrooms are accessed via stairwells. Please note the twin beds are accessed over a low log wall using three stairs on each side. This is a popular place to sleep and brings out the child in all my guests. The large kitchen and dining area are spacious and seat large groups comfortably.
As a child I devoured books like Call of the Wild and White Fang. My love and respect for the frozen north and dog mushing was born. I never expected to become a resident of the great state of Alaska for over 39 years.
Kathy Alonzo purchased this lodge in 2005
I bought this property to fulfill a life long dream of owning a bed and breakfast. After nine years, I noted the need for vacation rentals in this area and am moving in that direction. Though we still rent by the night as A Moose in the Garden B&B, I am providing the opportunity for families and friends to have a 'home away from home.'
Booked for the dates you desire?
I also have a rental centrally located in town. VRBO #408751

Had a wonderful accommodations. Highly recommend the place. Beautiful facilities and wonderful breakfast.
This is an absolutely gorgeous home with a beautiful view. If you want a place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Alaska, you can not fond a better place. There are 8 of us in our party and we were all able to sleep comfortably. The place is clean and well maintained. The owner gave suggestions for things to do in the area. Wonderful rental!
We are a family of 4 adults (My husband,myself, my daughter and my sister) and were lucky enough to stay with Kathy in her beautiful log home. Three of us were from Florida and traveling to Alaska in the winter was not an issue at all! The home has radiant heat floors and it was wonderful to walk in socks and have warm feet. We were never cold at all. We even tried to keep the thermostat low to save on energy costs and we were always very comfortable. Kathy helped us with the wood stove and it made us even more toasty warm. The comfy chairs by the wood stove were very hard to leave - every one of the four of us fell asleep in one. Kathy went out of her way to be there when we needed her and then gave us space and privacy as if it were our own home. She lives on the property which is wonderful if you need anything. We spent every night watching the aurora (yes we did see aurora every night it was clear!) and I am sure we made lots of noise coming in and out of the front door at all hours of the night. Kathy assured us we did not disturb her. She even joined us one night aurora watching. Thankfully she understands the breathtaking experience it can be and is very forgiving of a family from Florida who has to come in from temperatures below zero to warm up frequently. Her kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and more! My husband was able to cook all our meals and even bake oatmeal cookies. All we needed to do was to go to the store (15 minutes away) and purchase food. Kathy was kind enough to let us use some of her supplies. We also met Kathy's daughter Stacey. If you are lucky enough to meet her like we were, we were treated to some of Stacey's baked goods as she is a student with the culinary arts program at the University of Alaska. Words cannot describe the buttery croissants!! We truly felt at home and was awed by the breathtaking beauty of Alaska - which is evident just looking out off the back deck. We saw aurora, went dog sledding, went to the ice carving championships, went to Chena Hot Springs and much more! A truly fabulous vacation made even more special by Kathy. I feel I made a new friend. I will be back and stay with Kathy again!! I also want to make note of the special touches Kathy provided - there were boxes of tissues in each room, cotton balls and q-tips in the bathrooms, soap and shampoo and hairdryers as well. The towels were wonderfully thick and warm. I cant wait to go back.
We were a party of 5, went to Fairbanks to watch the Aurora Borealis. The lodge is clean, comfortable and cosy, it felt like home away from home. If you stay in the loft, and if you are lucky to see the Aurora, you can enjoy it right in bed.
Kathy, the owner, is very attentive. She dropped by every day to ensure everything is alright and gave us direction to different sights.
If we go back to Fairbanks in the future, we will definitely stay there again.
Thank you, Kathy!
We family of 5 came from Vancouver BC Canada. We came to Fairbanks to watch the Northern Lights, we choose this place for it's location and viewing benefit. If you stay in the Northern Light Room, you'll be able to watch the Northern Lights in bed when it appears (if you're lucky). We really appreciate the facility , we have no experience of staying in the log cabins before and it is so unique. It's a very comfortable place, it's like a home away from home. All in all we enjoy every moment in this place and Kathy is a great host and she really cares about her guests.
This is one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. Charming accomindations. Delicious food. I recommend and hope to stay here again.
Set in the heart of the boreal forest, A Moose in the Garden is within 15 minutes of the airport, train station, Riverboat Discovery dock, Ice Park, Ester, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
