In addition located only 5 miles away is the local ski resort of Moose Mountain. In the summer there are biking and hiking trails and easy access to Ester dome for panoramic views of the Fairbanks area. There is great views of the forest in the front and the aurora when it is out. Designed to give you a real Alaskan wilderness experience, the log cabin was handcrafted by your host using local spruce trees. Wildlife frequent the area, including moose, fox and sandhill cranes. There are several sled-dog kennels located in the area where you will hear their occasional distant howls floating across the tree tops. Every effort has been made to make this accommodation a typical rustic and authentic Alaskan cabin in harmony with its natural surroundings. The cabin can accommodate up to four people with a queen size bed in the loft, and a queen size fold-down futon downstairs. You will be able to cook yummy dinners in our fully equipped kitchen, while enjoying the warmth of the fire in the wood stove. There is a restaurant, store/market, laundry and gas station conveniently located less than one mile down the road. Please note that sometimes in the summer when it rains too much or there is too much snow in the in winter access to the carpark may be restricted, but we will provide you with an alternative place to park to have easy access to the cabin. Once a gold rush boomtown, Fairbanks is now Alaska’s second largest city after Anchorage. In the summer, the sun shines for nearly 24 hours a day giving you lots of time to do the many activities such as panning for gold, floating the Chena River, mingling with reindeer and musk oxen, cooling off in an ice museum, or taking a refreshing hike, or be inspired by local art galleries, museums, and historic sites. Late August to April you have a great chance to see the shimmering light of the aurora borealis. In the winter there are host of activities such as dog mushing, snow mobile trips and skiing, as well as soaking in hot pools of Chena Hot Springs. We provide dog rides in the winter and spring.
