Property description

Welcome to Moose Walk Cabin. Your Alaskan home away from home is a two-story log home nestled on a quiet wooded lot by a large stream. The cabin is in a prime location, close to activities, but still remote enough to get that Alaska wilderness feel.

Perfect for aurora viewing, a romantic get away, family vacation, or extended stay.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Moose Walk Cabin is situated in the heart of all your Interior Alaska destinations: North Pole Alaska. Grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and the famous Santa Claus house are a short 4 miles from the cabin. Downtown Fairbanks and Fairbanks International Airport are a quick 20 minute drive.

THE CABIN
Downstairs:
Put your feet up and relax on the recliner couches as you look through the picture windows at the amazing aurora or view of the stream that abounds with wildlife. Moose, squirrels, ducks, Bald Eagles, owls, beavers, porcupines, and foxes are seen almost daily.

After a long day of site seeing, kick back with a movie on HBO or Showtime. With 185 channels to choose from, you won't miss your favorite show or sports team.

Slap on your apron. If you plan to cook for a large family or an elegant dinner for two, the full size kitchen, packed with utensils and dishes, is sure to meet any chef's needs. The dining area comfortably seats 6.

Upstairs:
Amble up the stairs where the open floor plan with two plush pillow top queen beds provide comfortable slumber and a futon gives the option of an additional full size bed.

Enjoy the full bathroom with combination shower/tub. Hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towels, and washcloths provided.

Unpack the suitcases--get comfortable. The large dresser, and plenty of closet space for storage, let you feel right at home for longer stays.

The windows have blinds for privacy and to provide a darker room when the summer midnight sun is still glowing.

OUTSIDE
Circle around the fire-pit. It's the perfect place for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. For those that want to cook a meal, a custom grill rack with a spit will meet your needs. If you don't have the time for open fire cooking, a propane grill is also provided.

Head to the large back yard for a game of horseshoes or playing catch with the kids.

Stroll across the yard to the back of the property where you will find a private wood fired sauna.

Turn into the large private driveway with your car, truck w/ trailer, RV or even a bus. There is lots of parking--even for a greyhound bus.

SUMMER VISITORS
Paddle down the meandering stream in a canoe for a romantic trip or to spend quality time with the kids. Two canoes with multiple sizes of life vests are provided.

Jump in the canoe or amble along the bank to fish for grayling by fly rod or spinning rod. Grayling are easier to catch on a fly rod. Don't worry if you have never fished with a fly rod. It is easy. Every guest who has used a fly rod for the first time at Moose Walk Cabin has caught fish. Please let us know if you need fishing instruction. We are happy to help. Fly rods and spinning rods are at the cabin for your use.

From the front door you can blaze endless miles of hiking, and ATV trails. Bring your ATVs; there is plenty of parking.

WINTER VISITORS
If comfortably watching natures greatest winter exhibition (the Aurora Borealis) is on your bucket list; then you've found the right place. No one knows what time of night the aurora will appear. Stay nice and cozy snuggled on the couch in the cabin, while you anxiously gaze out the large picture windows for the mystical aurora to begin its dance. While outside capturing those magical moments, don't worry about getting cold and missing a single second of the aurora. Nestle up to a crackling fire in front of the cabin as the skies mesmerize you with magical hues of green, purple, and red. Paths on the frozen ice are kept free of snow for alternate aurora shooting locations.

The winter weather turns our fishing kingdom into your very own private ice skating arena and hockey rink. Sticks, pucks, goals and some ice skates are provided. Playing in your winter boots is also a lot of fun--and safer for those that can't skate.

At the front porch, strap on your skis or snowshoes and trek out into the winter wonderland. You will find endless miles of trails waiting for you to discover them.

If riding snowmobile is more your style; bring it along. At the end of our road you will find trails that lead to the Chena Flood Plain and all the way to Fairbanks, Two Rivers, and Chena Hot Springs. There is plenty of parking for your trailer. We enjoy riding snowmobile as well. We can point you in the direction of great local trails.

After a long day of braving the Alaskan cold, unwind by the wood stove as you listen to the wood crackle and watch the flames dance across the logs. Wood is free and provided on site. We are happy to provide instruction for the wood stove. The wood stove will heat the cabin but not necessary to use. The cabin has a fuel oil heater as the primary heat source.

GREAT TO KNOW INFO
A rental vehicle is necessary when visiting Alaska. Public transportation is not what you see in other countries and big cities. Taxis are available, but cost is typically more than a rental vehicle. A one-way taxi trip to the airport is around $60.00. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, but recommended if you plan to drive to the Arctic Circle.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are an active duty military family. We were stationed in Fairbanks Alaska from 2005 to 2009. We were relocated by the military, but knew we wanted to return to Alaska for retirement. In 2011 we had the opportunity to return to Alaska. We have been waiting for 'just the right place' to become available, for us to start our retirement dream of owning/operating a vacation rental in Alaska. Moose Walk Cabin was exactly what our family was looking for. We absolutely love everything about Alaska. We look forward to making your stay in Alaska, no matter how long, a memorable experience.

Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks:
We chose this property because of the location and the cabin. We have moose feed all summer in our back yard and yet we are less than five minutes to town. We love the water access at our back door. We are able to canoe and fish any time during the summer. Mother nature turns our water into a hockey rink for winter fun.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This private waterfront property allows travelers to have all the comforts from home while in Alaska. The tranquility, aurora views from the cabin steps, and wildlife are amazing. The cabin's Alaskan theme and charm makes this home away from home a truly unforgettable place.
