We always wanted to see the Northern Lights and for years just talked about it. We finally took the plunge and flew to Fairbanks and stayed in this amazing yurt! There were 4 adults and it was plenty big enough for all of us. When we arrived it was snowing and the following day it was -14 degrees. Brrrrrrr but we were nice an cozy and warm in the yurt! We saw ice sculpting, rode on an Alaskan dog sled, had a drink in the Ice Bar and saw a moose! Unfortunately Mother Nature did not bless us with an Aurora, but the vacation itself was an adventure to remember.
Collen, the owner of the yurt was so responsive and helpful. We felt right at home. THANK YOU, Colleen !
Great stay here at Coleen's yurt B! My boyfriend and I headed to Anchorage and Fairbanks in search of the Northern Lights. We were lucky to have seen them earlier in the week and ended our trip here at the Yurt. The location is right outside of Fairbanks. During winter, AWD is needed. The yurt is very spacious, clean and enjoyable. 3 bedroom areas (which includes a ladder to a loft), small living room area, and nice size kitchen with stove, refrigerator, and island to sit around. Cable and Wifi, washer and dryer, kitchen supplies and towels, and more are all in the yurt. There are also head lamps to use. The yurt is very cute and makes you feel like you are in Alaska. Thanks Coleen!
I wasn't sure that staying in yurt when it's -29 outside was a great idea, but it was! It was warm and cozy and the beds had big fluffy comforters and flannel sheets.
When we arrived after midnight, the yurt was light up and warm inside. It's so clean and it even smells nice (but not overwhelming).
Colleen was super helpful and it is SUCH a pretty place. We may not have seen the northern lights, but we enjoyed the time just hanging out together.
Cozy, yet spacious, secluded yet close enough to Fairbanks. Was a wonderful and relaxing stay! Amazing views! Colleen is the perfect hostess, available for anything at anytime! Could not have been more happy with the clean and well kept accommodations! Planning on a return trip already!
