About the Property
1 Bedroom (Sleeps 2) NO bathroom or running water! Comfy King Size Log Bed
We are HIGHLY ALLERGIC so we do NOT rent to smokers at all.
Enjoy a truly once in a lifetime rustic Alaskan experience by staying in our adorable cabin on the resort property!
Heated with an oil stove keeping it warm and toasty even in the coldest temperatures! Comfy King Size Log Bed.
It is a DRY cabin which means it does NOT have a BATHROOM or running water like all of the cabins on the resort property. Outhouse is 30 seconds away. Bathrooms are only a ONE minute walk from the cabin in the Activity Center (OPEN 24 hours daily-best option), the Pool House lobby (7AM-12AM) at $15 daily fee per person per day, to use the showers and hot springs lake.
NO REFUND if canceled 29 days or less unless we are able to obtain another guest booking for the same time period.
2 PERSON MAXIMUM - ONE COMFY KING SIZE BED ONLY.
The cabin is completely renovated, looks and feels like a deluxe cabin with nice amenities.
POOL HOUSE, HOT SPRINGS LAKE AND SHOWERS
Purchase daily adult swim passes for $15 each at the Pool House desk. Enjoy a soak or swim and shower in the Pool House and Locker rooms. Bring quarters for the lockers.
Full Service Restaurant/Lounge (7AM-10PM). Fresh snacks, sandwiches, soup, salads and Mac & cheese available in Aurora Cafe inside the Activity Center along with various packaged items.
There is no WIFI or internet available at the cabin. You may purchase WIFI at the resort front desk for $8 per device. Best reception is in the Activity Center.
FYI - We only rent the cabin for a 2 NIGHT MINIMUM. So whether you book and stay only one night, we block the cabin for a 2 night stay. There is no discount for only staying one night.
However, you won't have to check out by 11AM the next morning. It makes for a leisurely visit and you can stay a little later the next morning since the cabin has been reserved for the 2nd night.
A 2 night stay is required for all bookings. The 30 year old cabin was completely renovated inside and out in 2010 and is super cozy with a comfy king size log bed, 40 inch LCD TV & DVD player, 65 movie library, mini refrigerator & microwave, 2 luggage racks, 2 folding chairs, burl table & 2 chairs.
Cleaning the cabin after your stay is included in the rental rate with no additional fees, please leave any used robes or towels hanging on the closet hooks before leaving and the cabin cleaner will take care of them.
The cabin has 2 Spa Robes & 2 pool towels for the hot springs, 2 folding chairs for the deck, 2 luggage racks, 2 head lamps for using in the dark, boot grippers for walking on icy surfaces, oil heated stove to keep it warm even in the coldest Alaskan temperatures!
It is beautifully decorated with gorgeous aurora photos taken by Alaskan photographer Todd Salat 'The Aurora Chaser' on one wall. Photos of the resort's activities taken by the cabin owners adorn the other wall.
Enjoy the afternoon sun on the deck of the cabin & watch Moose walk right by! The Moose photo was taken by the owner last summer while sitting on the deck reading a book.
LOCATION AT RESORT
It's a short ONE minute walk to the Activity Center (24 hours daily - best option) or resort's Restaurant (7AM-10PM) or Pool House (7AM-12AM). You can shower at the Pool House after your swim ($15 per person per day) and arrive at the cabin refreshed!
HOW TO GET TO CHENA HOT SPRINGS RESORT
You can either book the Resort's Chena Shuttle Service which is $199 round trip for a Single Person or or $250 round trip for two persons on same reservation in same van.
CHENA SHUTTLE VAN TRANSPORTATION
After booking your cabin and receiving confirmation, you may book the resort's round trip Chena Shuttle van transportation.
Please contact Natasha at (907) 451-8104 x 7 to book and pay for the transportation. The resort does combine van transportation groups so you may be required to spend a few hours upon arrival at the airport before the van picks you up. You will be notified of the pick up time and of any changes.
Or you can rent a car at the Fairbanks, Alaska airport (Alamo, Avis, Budget, National) and it's about 1 hour 20 minute drive from the airport to the resort.
Depart Fairbanks International Airport on Airport Way and travel about six miles staying on Airport Way. Turn left on the Steese Expressway intersection right before Ft. Wainwright Main Gate.
Take the Steese Expressway towards Fox about 3-4 miles and turn right onto the Chena Hot Springs Road exit about three miles from downtown Fairbanks.
Keep driving to the very end of Chena Hot Springs Road at mile 56.5 mile (completely paved and maintained year round) and you are there! Be on the look out for moose along the way on the side of the road!
So if you want a fabulous Alaskan getaway in a comfy cabin with amenities close by at a wonderful hot springs resort, this cabin is for you!

George and Denise purchased the cabin in 2008 from the original owners who had owned it for 30 years and started renovations.

Come see it for yourself and enjoy its comfort and natural beauty right outside your door!
