Now for our room at Wedgewood. This may the best "room" that we've ever stayed in. It was really a one-room apartment with full kitchen, a living room that was as big as ours at home, ditto the dining room. The walk-in closet in the bedroom was as big as the bedrooms that our kids stayed in the summer that Vic and I lived in Higganum, Conn., in a house that was built in 1690. The secret to this lovely room was that the Wedgewood rents these places out as furnished apartments in the winter, renting them by the night only in the summer. The furniture and paintings were lovely and we enjoyed our stay there very much.
Our room was only a few yards away from the Alaska Bird Observatory. The nature trails behind our building led to Creamer's Field, the premiere birding spot in Fairbanks. We saw Canada geese and sandhill cranes galore.
