Think of us as a vacation rental…your home away from home, which just happens to be located on Cleary Summit, one of the best aurora viewing spots in the world!  There are no restaurants or stores onsite, but we are just an easy 30 minutes drive north of downtown Fairbanks.  The Aurora Borealis Lodge offers two types of lodging.  The Cedar Lodge offers four private rooms with north facing windows with excellent views of the night sky. Logan’s Chalet is a spacious two bedroom Alaskan log home with an aurora viewing platform in the front yard.    All rooms & the Chalet has its own private kitchen, and private bathroom.

No Smoking & Sorry, No Pets allowed.

Overnight lodging is open August 16 to mid-April.

Travel Insurance recommended!  Though not as bad as the 2021/2022 season, we still noticed a handful of cancellations/changes in the 2022/2023 season.  And in early 2024 the Alaska Airlines B737-Max 9 issues have caused a handful of cancellations/changes, though that seems to be subsiding.  Unfortunately, with limited flights into Alaska/Fairbanks, it might be another 2, 3 or more days before the airlines can reschedule you on the next flight, which actually means that you’d most likely had to cancel your Alaskan accommodations/activities.  So please be sure to look at  ours and any other Alaskan travel components’ policies, and see if purchasing travel insurance is a good fit for you.  We don’t have a specific travel insurance company to recommend, but it seems like options to purchase pop up when you buy your airline tickets.  Also, credit card companies (such as American Express’ Platinum Card) may offer travel insurance so be sure to check into that too.
