Property description

Whether traveling under the midnight sun or the aurora borealis you will find this peaceful setting a perfect base for your interior Alaskan vacation.
View the Alaska Range and Denali (Mt. McKinley) from the inside loft or relaxing on the grand outdoor deck. During dark, clear nights enjoy star gazing and the excitement of the aurora borealis unobstructed by city lights either inside or outside this well-appointed log home.
If booking the entire house you will sleep 8 people comfortably in 3 queen-size beds and 2 twin beds. All the bedrooms are accessed via stairwells. Please note the twin beds are accessed over a low log wall using three stairs on each side. This is a popular place to sleep and brings out the child in all my guests. The large kitchen and dining area are spacious and seat large groups comfortably.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As a child I devoured books like Call of the Wild and White Fang. My love and respect for the frozen north and dog mushing was born. I never expected to become a resident of the great state of Alaska for over 39 years.

Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks:
I bought this property to fulfill a life long dream of owning a bed and breakfast. After nine years, I noted the need for vacation rentals in this area and am moving in that direction. Though we still rent by the night as A Moose in the Garden B&B, I am providing the opportunity for families and friends to have a 'home away from home.' Booked for the dates you desire? I also have a rental centrally located in town. VRBO #408751
