The only reason I did not rate this B&B excellent was that this was our 4th B&B of the trip and the other 3 were off the scale. We would stay at Moose in the Garden again in a heartbeat. By any measure the stay was comfortable and the hospitality engaging. We had the 2 downstairs rooms and shared a big bathroom and sitting room. Location is about 20 minutes out of downtown but setting is lovely and the drive scenic.

If making a trip to Fairbanks, this beautifully appointed B&B should top the list. The owner treats the guests like rock stars with an amazing blend of hospitality & culinary expertise. The view is amazing and serves as a relaxing retreat.

Gorgeous place and view. Super kind and friendly owner, comfy bed. Lots of extra neat reasons to stay here- the reception, the breakfast (oh that syrup!), chance to see the lights (when we were there we saw a small show of lights, no colors but a hint of action!), it's quiet, and we even got to play billiards before we left! Great overnight stay. oh- check out the eagle sculpture while there. Pretty col!

Room Tip: we slept upstairs and found it private enough...

Best time ever! Kathy has an intuitive sense about her guests' needs and personalities and provides such good care of them. She had lots of good advice about things to do and see in Fairbanks and environs. The aurora was spectacular, right out the front door of A Moose in the Garden. On top of that, her home is wonderful-beautifully and comfortably furnished with interesting touches waiting to be discovered, AND with a view of Denali. It is cozy and clean. And breakfast-yummy! Book early-I wasn't able to stay quite as long as I wanted, despite planning months in advance (all other guests said the same thing). Thanks Kathy!

Room Tip: They are all terrific-depends on what you prefer.

From the moment that we arrived to our final good-bye, our experience with Kathy and our stay at The Moose in the Garden was amazing. We came to Fairbanks in February on a life long dream to see the auroras and we were not disappointed. Kathy even woke me up at 1:30 am on our first night to see the glorious display overhead.
The house itself is breathtaking, built with massive logs and adorned with wonderful examples of Alaskan décor. From the outdoor deck we were able to see Mt. McKinley at sunset and again at sunrise. We stayed in the Northern Lights room which was spacious and comfortable in every way. On our second night, I went from window to window trying to catch every glimpse of the aurora show displayed just for me in the quiet of the sleeping house.
By the time we arrived in Alaska, I felt that Kathy was already a friend. Due to a family emergency, we had to cancel our plans the year before, so by the time of this trip, Kathy and I had talked on the phone and e mailed many, many times. Kathy is perfectly suited to have a Bed and Breakfast. She extends a warm Alaskan welcome to her guests as she strives to anticipate and meet the needs of her visitors. She goes out of her way to make her home comfortable and her guests relaxed.
A Moose in the Garden is located out in the country in an area that feels like it is on top of the world, and yet it is only a few miles from downtown Fairbanks so it is convenient to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We actually have plans to return to see the Far North again when it is not covered with snow.

Room Tip: The Northern Lights room is an experience not to be missed
