  • We stayed in the Fairbanks/Denali area for a week, and this was our favorite part - we stayed two nights in the Yurt here and did the mushing school experience. Our kids loved mushing, but also getting to help with the dogs and love on them. The yurt was very cozy and comfortable for the four of us. The breakfasts were wonderful and the owner is a wonderful woman and excellent host. Definitely recommend!!!
  • My wife & I and our two kids (12 & 11 y/o) really enjoyed our two night stay and dog sledding experience at Just Short of Magic. The owner and team really love & take care of their dogs. (They are "buddies", not "pets".) We stayed in the only lodging (Yurt) available at Just Short of Magic. My family and I enjoyed our Yurt experience, but it may not be for everyone. We highly recommend Just Short of Magic!!!
