Description

The Space

Alaskan log home near Fairbanks, in private, quiet, sunny location, great view, and close to the University and town. Experience real Alaska in comfort! Ideally located on the outskirts of town. Accommodates up to six people. The house has two bedrooms with very comfy queen beds and a loft with a queen futon.

Travelers often refer to the log home as a 'cabin', probably because of the log construction, but the place is a log house with full amenities-- running water, full shower, two bathrooms, washer and dryer, beautifully equipped kitchen, standard oil furnace heat (but also has a high efficiency, clean burning wood stove), etc.

Located in a quiet residential setting on the outskirts of College, Alaska. Twelve minute drive to the University, 15 minutes from the airport, and 20 minute drive to downtown. Enjoy the Aurora Borealis from the deck or hot tub, explore your creativity in the ceramics studio, check out the wood-fired pizza and bread oven, go sled dog mushing, or drive to the Arctic Circle, Brooks Range, Arctic Coastal Plain, Alaska Range, or the internationally renowned Denali National Park or Chena Natural Hot Springs. See the Trans-Alaska pipeline or visit the amazing Fairbanks Icepark in winter. Lots to do within easy reach! Free high-speed wireless internet, nice office work space with a view of the Alaska Range, fresh eggs daily from the chicken coop (Oct 2014 chicken update-- chickens have moved on to their next existence, and the chicken coup will be filled with new baby chicks in spring 2015, but we still get fresh eggs from the neighbor's chickens in the meantime!!), espresso maker, and fresh garden goodies and berries (when in season). Snowshoeing, hiking and mountain biking trails out the front door, and ski trails nearby! Watch a movie on the big screen, and enjoy the comfort and ambiance of the wood stove. Peaceful, private, relaxing setting. Makes a great getaway, or home away from home!

My interaction with guests varies widely, depending upon guest preferences and needs. I enjoy meeting guests, and hearing their travel stories and experiences. I take extra care to be sure my guests have what they need, and that they have an excellent Alaskan experience.

The neighborhood is quiet, nestled in the forest, and even though my place is located close to town it offers excellent privacy. Hiking trails are right out the front door.

Having a car is helpful for getting around, if you want to see the area. My place is an easy 15-min drive from the airport.

House Rules

No more than six people. Dogs on approval. No cats or other pets please. Absolutely NO smoking or drugs. I aim to host responsible, respectful, considerate guests that seek a true Alaskan travel experience. Instead of requiring expensive security deposits or charging higher cleaning costs, I simply ask that guests leave the house clean and orderly, as it was when they arrived, including washing the linens (which helps me defray some of the costs of house cleaning, to pass those savings on to guests). Price includes all taxes.
