Welcome to the Grizzly Lodge

A Wonderful Bed & Breakfast Outside Fairbanks

The Alaska Grizzly Lodge is a beautiful European style lodge located 10 scenic miles from downtown Fairbanks, surrounded by spruce forest and hiking trails. This lodge sets itself apart from the competition with its friendly hosts, cozy common areas, comfortable rooms, delicious food, and stunning Aurora viewing from September through March. Our rooms feature private bathrooms, cable TV, wireless internet and some have direct access to patio decks. 

If you’re visiting to see the Northern Lights, our lodge’s location close to, but away from the city, means that the night skies are void of light pollution. The less light, the better your views and photos will be. We offer aurora wake-up service and have an aurora guide on hand to answer questions about this exceptional natural phenomena and offer tips on how to photograph them.

Nature fans take note that this Fairbanks-area lodge offers immediate access to trails through a beautiful boreal forest. Birds and wildlife call the woods their home and lucky guests have spotted fox and moose on their walks.

We hope you consider staying with us on your next visit and please reach out if you have any questions in advance.

“We stayed at Alaska Grizzly Lodge for a week around New Year’s Eve and had a spectacular time. Breakfasts were so delicious and filling, rooms were clean, the lodge owner is so personal and wants to make your stay great, and the lodge is just far enough outside of Fairbanks to think you are far away from a city.”
