If you want a great place to take your Aurora photos, this is the place. It is well thought out, and not a bad drive from Fairbanks. The room was as promised, beds comfortable, perfect sized kitchen and bathroom, red headlamps provided if you didn't bring yours, wifi worked great, and the picture windows....perfect for our tripods.
However, we did run into a few problems that could have been avoided (and yes we did try to get these fixed while there):
* our blinds did not work, so at night we had to sit in the dark so that our lights would not bother the other guests taking photos
* not all guests followed the lodges rule of either keeping their lights off or blinds drawn at night
We are planning to go back again, but since we choose this lodge especially for the chance to take wonderful night photos.....we were a little disappointed.
