    Wedgewood Resort customer service shines

    Wedgewood resort is part of the Fountainhead Development, an enormous property, built during the 1970’s to meet the increasing demand for rooms during construction of the Alyeska pipeline. With enormous rooms and a nice neighborhood with access to a number of interesting activities, we found Wedgewood to be more than satisfactory. Dated and definitely catering to a cruise-tour population, the staff were kind and accommodating to our family. However, kids were not number one on their list of people to please, and we had to ask for a small fridge in our room, kid-pleasing entrees in the dining room (very overpriced, too), and lists of activities to please our six year-old. But, everyone did a stellar job of accomplishing requests, and I’d give top marks for service. The hotel is located on the same property as the famous and fabulous Antique Auto Museum, where all vehicles are kept in pristine condition, and where Willy the Manager may let kids honk the kahoo-ga horn. Do not miss this place. Walk Wander Lake’s trail, too, and see if the beavers are out. The hotel property also has some interesting historical displays, and a nearby school provides an excellent playground. For more walking, and kid-friendly folks, hike on over to Creamer’s Field Migratory Bird Refuge. Sandhill cranes, ducks, geese, and four-footed critters live on this wonderful section of old dairy farm, and the Farmhouse Visitor Center is a great place for kids.

    Tips for Families

    Plan on walking, it’s an excellent way to see the area and kids tired of buses, planes, and trains can get some exercise! The hotel is built from concrete, and thus, wireless internet is spotty at best. Go down to the lobby if you need to surf the web. Take the free trolley shuttle to Creamer’s Field, the Tanana Valley State Fair (mid-August), or downtown.
