Fairbanks cabin description

Moose Walk Cabin is a two story log home nestled on a quiet wooded lot by a small stream. Perfect for aurora viewing, a romantic get away, vacation, or extended stay. Downstairs, enjoy wireless internet, a living room with cable TV, dining area, full kitchen, and laundry. Large picture windows provide an amazing view of the stream that abounds with wildlife. Moose, squirrels, ducks, Bald Eagles, owls, beavers, porcupines, and foxes are seen almost daily. Upstairs has an open floor plan. Two pillow top queen beds provide comfortable slumber and a futon gives the option of an additional full size bed. A full bathroom and plenty of closets for storage, let you feel right at home for longer stays. There are blinds on the windows for privacy and to provide a darker room when the summer midnight sun is still glowing. Private wood fired sauna is available for use. BBQ grills and campfire ring are on site for cooking and roasting marshmallows. From the front door you will have access to endless miles of hiking, snowmobile, and 4-wheeler trails. A canoe with life jackets is on site for use.

                          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 running a B&B/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:
                          This property was chosen because of the birch and spruce trees, the access to the stream, and central location between the Ft Wainwwright, Eielson Air Force Base and the cities of North Pole and Fairbanks. The neighborhood is well maintained and neighbors add on to their homes rather than move to another location. They value their land, homes and Alaskan way of life. It is a wonderful community and provides an authentic Alaskan neighborhood for the visitor.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          This private waterfront property allows you to stay in a rural residential setting. You have access to a 2 acre yard, a wood burning sauna in a separate building, a playhouse, a pavillion with a fire pit, picnic tables and expertise from your hostess if needed.
