Situated in the heart of Nome, Alaska, Golden Sands Stables & Lodging provides access to the best that Nome has to offer. The lodging facility is within walking distance of grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, gas stations, downtown Nome, and more. Our location is also an ideal spot for Iditarod visitors as we are both close to downtown and the end of the race, as well as near a siren so you know when the mushers are racing in - which gives guests plenty of time to put their gear on and see the mushers arrive! We have horseback riding opportunities at our farm 6 miles out of town.
Affectionately nicknamed Carol’s Place, this home was purchased from Carol Piscoya, a well-respected regional elder who raised her large family and dozens of foster children in this residence. We honor her and want to provide lodging for the region and visitors in a way that would make her proud.
At our main location, we currently offer one room with a private bathroom and three rooms with a shared bath. Common areas include one full bathroom, one half-bathroom, access to the large kitchen and supplies, a living room area, and a dining area. The wifi is accessible throughout the residence, and you will also find a Roku TV in the living/dining room area. The kitchen will be stocked with breakfast items and the utensils you need to cook your meals. Daily cleaning of common areas ensures your experience is clean and enjoyable!
We are also the furthest west equestrian center in the United States. We offer trail rides and other equine-related events for our guests and community members. Be sure to visit our website at www.goldensandsnome.com for more information on our facilities and current equestrian opportunities.
