The lodge is situated on 280 sunny hillside acres, 15 minutes from Fairbanks. Massive spruce trees were logged from the homestead and crafted into the unique structure of A Taste of Alaska Lodge. The 7000 square-foot natural log building, completed in 1995, is decorated with antiques and Alaskan collectibles. In 1947, the original 160 acres was homesteaded by Walter & Dorothy Eberhardt who developed the land for farming. Walter continues to farm it today. Our Northern Lights viewing is one of the finest in the Tanana Valley, with a panoramic display that dances across the Alaska Range. Come enjoy A Taste of Alaska Lodge.
