Our cozy log cabin is self contained and secluded in a beautiful forest setting just outside Fairbanks in the Goldstream Valley. Only 12 miles from downtown Fairbanks and 20 minutes from the airport, the Goldstream Valley is famous for dog mushing, ski trails and aurora viewing in winter. Located only 5 miles from the local downhill ski area, Moose Mountain. In summer, the area boasts great mountain biking trails (Ester Dome single-track), access to hiking and panoramic views of the Fairbanks area.
Designed to give you a real Alaskan wilderness experience, the Denali Adventure log cabin was handcrafted by your host using local spruce trees. Wildlife frequent the area, including moose, fox and sandhill cranes. There are several sled-dog kennels located in the area where you will hear their occasional distant howls floating across the tree tops. Every effort has been made to make this accommodation a typical rustic and authentic Alaskan cabin in harmony with its natural surroundings.
The cabin comfortably sleeps up to 4 people with a double bed in the loft and a fold-out sofa/futon in the downstairs lounge. There is a full, self-contained kitchen. The cabin is rustic but modern. In keeping with the Alaskan tradition of simplicity and low environmental impact, the toilet is a typical Alaskan outhouse. There is a separate sauna and shower building 10 feet from the cabin. There is a woodstove that is used to heat up the water and the shed for your shower. In the meantime there is seating in there for you to have a sauna while this is happening.
There is great views of the aurora that you can watch from the comfort of your bed in the bedroom in the winter.
There is a restaurant, store/market, laundry and gas station conveniently located less than one mile down the road.
Once a gold rush boomtown, Fairbanks is now Alaska’s second largest city after Anchorage. In the summer, the sun shines for nearly 24 hours a day giving you lots of time to do the many activities such as panning for gold, floating the Chena River, mingling with reindeer and musk oxen, cooling off in an ice museum, or taking a refreshing hike, or be inspired by local art galleries, museums, and historic sites.
Late August to April you have a great chance to see the shimmering light of the aurora borealis. In the winter there are host of activities such as dog mushing, snow mobile trips and skiing, as well as soaking in hot pools of Chena Hot Springs.

About the owner: I am a New Zealander who has been living in the Goldstream Valley, on the outskirts of the city of Fairbanks, for 18 years. Before arriving in Alaska, I was a keen kayaker, skier, mountaineer, and hiker. I was lured to Alaska in 1992 to climb Mount McKinley and experience all the adventures that the land had to offer. Some 18 years on, I am is still here and still experiencing the many Alaskan adventures available.
Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks: My business partner Chris and I built this log cabin, as we wanted to offer our friends and guests the opportunity to experience a real Alaskan lifestyle.
