About the Property
3 Bedroom 2.5 Baths sleeps 8- 10 people. Mountain and aurora views.
This 3,000sqft natural log home was built almost entirely from the white spruce trees that grew on the property. The original owner cut, hand peeled, and allowed the logs to dry. He then contracted a premier log home builder to hand scribe each log to fit into place in 1990. The log detail is a thing of beauty. It has that rustic, homey feeling that only log homes can give.
This premium log home offers views of the Alaska Range and Denali from the inside loft or while relaxing on the grand outdoor deck while grilling your favorite Alaskan seafood. During dark, clear nights enjoy star gazing and the excitement of the aurora borealis unobstructed by city lights from either inside or outside this well-appointed, truly Alaskan home.
The large upstairs loft bedroom sleeps four in a queen size bed and a pair of twin beds. Please note the set of twin beds are accessed over a low log wall using three stairs on each side of log wall. This gives some privacy from each of these adjoining sleeping spaces in the loft. This is a popular place to sleep and brings out the child in all my guests. The pair of downstairs bedrooms in the day light basement, each have queen size beds. All the bedrooms have views and are accessed via stairwells. There is also a futon bed that can be pulled out to sleep an additional two people. There are bathrooms conveniently located on all three levels.
The sitting area near the fire is the most popular place to read, while the family room has a 60" curved television available for your viewing pleasure.
The keyless entry makes access convenient and there is no worry over lost keys.
Off street parking is plentiful and has headbolts for winter guests to plug in their vehicles when temperatures drop to 20 degress or colder.
I believe the peace and tranquility that guests enjoy while staying at this vacation rental comes from the "groundedness" of the home being built from truly local logs. It can't get more organic than that!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I arrived in Alaska in 1975. I have lived in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Delta Junction, Petersburg, Arctic Circle Hot Springs Resort, and North Pole. Construction work took me around the state, but I found Fairbanks to be just the right size town for me. The people here are amazing! I have worked as an iron worker, retailer, cashier, florist, receptionist, teacher, and business owner. My talented children all live here in Fairbanks and I am now a proud grandmother.
Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks, AK, USA:
I bought this gorgeous natural log home property to fulfill a life-long dream of owning a bed and breakfast. After ten years of operating the B&B, I noted the need for family vacation rentals in this area and am moving in that direction.
