“Mountain Grandure”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This home has a view so beautiful that I could not stop enjoying. It is so quiet and peaceful, You could not find a more beautiful spot. The décor fits in with the nature surrounding the cabin. It is very clean and comfortable home away from home.

“Amazing Cabin!”
Reviewed 1 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017
people found this review helpful

I can't say enough wonderful things about the owner, Colleen, and her cabin! It feels so warm and cozy & she is very helpful with getting there, showing you how to use the wood stove (for additional heat), tips on the aurora & other local things to do, etc. The cabin is clean & well stocked with kitchen & bathroom items. We were able to do laundry, use the wifi, watch tv, soak in the tub, use the massage chair... or just enjoy the stunning views from the living room! We even had a moose join us for breakfast one morning as we watched from the dining area window. While this cabin was more room than we needed for our honeymoon, I could definitely see going back here with our family or friends one day. It sleeps so many and is just cute and comfortable all the way around. It was perfect because we had amazing views, were outside the city but very close so running into town was quick & easy. The bedding was warm & cozy & we were able to watch the aurora while laying in bed, looking out the window over the driveway! We were there during an exceptionally cold snap but hope to go back again in the future during spring or fall which I'm sure will be gorgeous also, especially sitting out on that wrap around balcony! Don't miss your chance to book this amazing cabin! Thank you for making our stay fantastic, Colleen!

“Perfect log cabin vacation!!”
Reviewed 28 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
people found this review helpful

This true log cabin is large (easily sleeps 8 without feeling crowded) and really feels like home. We are only a party of 4 but we have a great time sharing Colleen's house for 3 days, especially love it after sightseeing in town then come back & relax in a quiet wooded forest environment. House is clean and beds are comfortable. Can't pack all the clothes in handcarry for the trip? No worries, there are washer & dryer in the house. We cooked breakfasts & dinner 2 out of the 3 nights and are so glad that the kitchen is fully stocked, so convenient!! All you need is get your grocery at Fred Myer on the way home. And that view behind the dinning room, and from the balcony, is just gorgeous!! If I ever visit Fairbanks again, I would love to stay in Colleen's cabin again!

Tips: There is a massage chair in the master bedroom. Snow crab legs from Fred Meyer with Alaska beer makes a great dinner!

“Feels like home”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016
people found this review helpful

The Cabin is beautiful. It make you feel like you are at home. Very cozy. Away from the city and up the mountain...saved us money not having to book a Northern Lights tour. Can see the lights right from the balcony. Also lots of big windows so we waited inside, where its warm, til we saw the lights and went out for pictures. The Lights are visable between 10pm-3am ish. Its nice to not have to travel on a van, wait in the cold, and have to travel back. Then hope you get to see something. I vote for sitting in my pajamas next to a fire. We booked 4nights March 16-20, 2nights it was clear enough to see. So it was nice to be on our own schedule and not have to worry about might being able to see something. Traveled with my best friend and my brother. Colleen and her son are super sweet and made sure we were taken care of, even their dog made us feel welcomed. It snowed the day before we got there and the streets weren't plowed yet. Our rental suv got stuck and she came down and helped us. Her son drove his car down and picked up our luggage and took it to the house. Once the street was cleared it wasn't a problem driving to the house. All the streets and driveways are steep in this area. They live on the bottom floor but was not is our space. We had the top 2 floors to ourselves and we felt like it was only our group there. Kitchen is fully functional. It was nice to be able to cook breakfest and have coffee. Saved us time and money, and a way for us to eat healthy(even though we splurged too #balance). Already planning on coming back and staying here.
