I am the owner and proprietor of Crystalwood Lodge, meaning I wear many hats - Laundry Fairy, Reservation Clerk, Housekeeper, Garbageperson, Goat Herder, Groundskeeper...the proverbial buck stops here. My goal is to provide you the best experience possible in our little patch of paradise, a glimpse into the way things used to be. I have owned Crystalwood Lodge since Oct. 2001, and am thrilled to share with you all the local secrets to thoroughly immerse yourself in this very special area. I am also known as Iditarod's Littlest Musher...because I am! I spent a decade building a dog team from scratch to run and complete the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in 2008 to celebrate my 50th birthday. Mission accomplished! My dogs are on property, either in my house or my dogyard - out of guest space and sight, but easily shared -- if you want to know more, or get to know them, just ask! And don't worry...while we are the very definition of pet welcoming, if you don't bring a pet for your're welcome to stay anyway! ;-)
