Space to Explore Fairbanks

As a seasonal hotel located on the grounds of Wedgewood Resort, we offer all of the same amenities and ways to discover Fairbanks, but in a more traditional hotel setting.

Your comfort and well-being is a priority for us, now more than ever. Spread out in our spacious room. Roam peacefully around the grounds among the flowers and outdoor displays. Explore the trails and informative signs along the Wildlife Sanctuary Trails. In late August, enjoy viewing the northern lights steps from your room. Or check out the world-class Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum and let your experience continue to WOW you.

Open during summer months (mid-May to mid-September), the Golden Bear Restaurant and Lounge serves everything from fresh, crisp salads and house-made vegetarian options to perfectly grilled beef tenderloin and seafood dishes, as well as traditional favorites like meatloaf with potatoes.

We are always gauging the climate of opening up our Bear Lodge restaurants amid concerns of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. We will update our website and social media as soon as we announce our opening schedule! Beer well!
