We stayed 5 nights. Saw lights 2 nights. Staffs and owners were very friendly. One minor issue which is more related to the condition of the nature- we were out of running water 3 nights. Because the lodge is located in the mountains and a remote area, water was pumped from a well. Well water level decreases around this time...

We stayed at the Mushers Cabin during the first week of March, 2017. It was a fabulous experience. The location of the lodge is as excellent and so is the service. The Mushers cabin was ready at our arrival and it was exactly as we read about it in the website. We have a 5 year old and we did...

We went to see the Aurora Borelis for New Year's 2017 and what great hospitality. The owners were amazing and really made us feel like we were at home! We didn't think we would be able to see it but on 01/01, the night attendent ran down the hallway and we were able to see the Aurora with a KP...

I spent four days at the lodge last weekend! We had a wonderful time. The location is perfect for viewing the Northern Lights. We saw the lights every night we were there. One night we saw an entire sky of green, pink, and orange. It was amazing! I must say Josh, who works with the lodge, was wonderful! He was...

Excellent and cozy Lodge with GREAT staff. A BEST place to see Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), the lights just appear in front of the lodge. The staff is so nice and provide wake up call for Aurora.

We stayed 3 nights in September to see the Aurora Borealis. We chose it for its distance from the city and earlier reviews and a comparatively reasonable price. Staff were exceptionally friendly, and eager to make you feel at home. As advertised they wake everybody up (who wants to be awakened) when the Northern Lights appear in the wee hours....

This cabin was well appointed and nicer then we expected. It looks small from the outside, but it was set up well and felt much larger inside. One bed upstairs with the bathroom, and another bed and pull out couch downstairs. Full kitchen and washer and dryer for you to use. Big family size table for meals and games. Bring...

We only stayed one night at the Mount Aurora Lodge but wished we could stay longer. It had a rustic charm & a homely feel. The staff were fantastic & the views were amazing. Would definitely go back if I was travelling to Alaska again

A very nice and secluded spot. The rooms are basic but just what you need. The breakfast on offer is lovely! However, keep in mind that it is a lodge and sound travels. With people staying up late to view the lights, it's not the place to come for some rest! The shared bathrooms are not really a problem and...

Had a party of five in the Musher's cabin for two nights. The bathroom is upstairs with the shower not behind a door, but there is now a cloth cover to it so if you go up there one at a time it is no problem. The cabin itself is much larger and nicer than it appears on the outside....
