We booked here upon the recommendation of a local friend. The location was very convenient to shopping, restaurants and local sights.
Our suite was well appointed with all we needed in the kitchen, two flat screen tv's, a comfortable "living room" and overall a very comfortable space. Since we were staying a full week, it was great to have plenty of space. It was also very nice having laundry facilities available and easily accessible.
The front desk staff was pretty friendly, but not always knowledgeable about local sights. The tour company they recommended for an Aurora Tour (our primary reason for this trip) could benefit from customer service training. We booked with another one and were very pleased.

Whilst there are a number of designated camping area it is also possible to camp anywhere along either the road or river you can find a suitable spot. It was really nice exploring some of the trails and stoney riverbank on the bike ...
... that Tom & Marianne and Carl & Donna were as impressed with her as we were. You leave feeling like part of her family and with a much greater appreciation for the sport of Mushing and the resilience of many of the Alaskan people. We spent 3 hours on a 2 hour tour and loved every second. We even got to howl with the dogs.
On the way back to the house we stopped and did a little souvenir shopping ...
