Anita, the owner is a very nice and helpful person. There was nobody to receive us when we arrived. But there was a note taped on the door to another guest, who had arrived just before, with her cell phone. We called and she gave us an apartment and allowed us to get in. We left our luggage in the apartment and went out to buy some things and when we got back we formalized check in. The Grizzly Lodge is a beautiful wooden house typical of Alaska, about seven minutes off the city of Fairbanks but the access is fast and easy. It is surrounded by forest, allowing great views of the sky. The tops of the trees against the sky allows great photos of Aurora Borealis that can be made from the balcony that surrounds the entire house on its second floor. There is a full kitchen and laundry facilities for guests to use at no extra charge. The next day Anita was again very helpful, serving a great breakfast including a deliciuous egg casserole, sausage, breads and pastries, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea... After breakfast she suggested things to do and attractions to see and telephoned directly to two dog mushing schools/operators for us, and although it was the very end of the season, she managed and reserved a wonderful dogs sled tour for. When we got to the place we realized that our car could not make our way back climbing that long frozen slope. We called Anita once more, asking her to tell the operator about our situation. She immediately left whatever she was doing to give us a ride in her 4WD truck, delivering us safely and on time in the right place. Thanks so much, Anita!!
