Alaskan log home near Fairbanks, in private, quiet, sunny location, great views, and close to the University and town. Ideal for experiencing the aurora borealis from the deck! 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, fully 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 Fairbanks. Enjoy the Aurora Borealis from the deck or lawn, 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, espresso maker, and fresh garden goodies and berries (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 friendly, quiet, safe, and 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.

Cooper is my super friendly, fun, and well behaved chocolate labrador retriever. He loves to greet, meet, and play with guests for those so inclined. He especially loves kids! Cooper and I live in a small house on the property completely separate and out of sight from the Airbnb log home. You may occasionally see us come and go.
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.
I am a freshwater ecologist with the University of Alaska, in Fairbanks. When not teaching or doing ecological research I enjoy adventure travel, fishing, biking, skiing, pottery, boat building, yoga, varied and healthy cuisine, cooking, and gardening. I live an active life, free of drugs and tobacco. (I do enjoy proper amounts of good espresso, wine, beer, and occasionally whiskey!)
