Stay Overnight in our Cozy Yurt for an Unforgettable B&B Experience
An overnight stay in this cozy, rural setting is a unique experience. Stay warm by the wood stove, enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, relax under a down comforter, and enjoy the photos of historical sled dog travel and Eskimo culture. During the summer, experience the midnight sun from your private deck. Take a nature walk on our forested trails. Enjoy golden birch trees on crisp fall mornings. In the winter and spring, the view of the northern sky offers a perfect opportunity to watch the northern lights or photograph the aurora.
In the morning, Eleanor personally serves a hearty, healthy home-made breakfast in the yurt. You can fix your favorite hot drinks at your convenience on a propane burner.
A stay in our yurt offers a glimpse into the lifestyle of an Alaskan dog musher. You’ll experience a unique blend of comfort and self-reliant living. Enjoy the luxuries of electricity and cell phone access, but do without wi-fi and running water in the yurt for a day. There is access to a shared shower and bathroom in the main house and a clean, comfortable Alaskan outhouse next the yurt for your privacy.
Please contact us prior to booking the Yurt if you have children under the age of 12 staying with you. The wood stove in the Yurt can be hazardous for young children.
“The sled dog ride was so much better than we even imagined. The quiet swish as the dogs ran full speed down a forest trail, occasionally biting a bit of snow as they ran. The friendly musher who told us funny stories. Riding through the quiet trees far away from town was an amazing experience. Also incredible, to awaken to moon lit snows, dancing purple lights, and the howl of a sled dog watching the Northern lights as we stepped out of the yurt in the middle of the night. The air was fresh and the yurt was so warm we opened the window for part of the night. For an experience far better than taking a bus to a tourist site, try visiting Just Short of Magic. It was an experience we won’t ever forget!”Michael Fanning
