Hand built log cabin less than 5 miles from Fairbanks and Ester, 8 miles from Fairbanks International airport and an easy 22 miles on the highway to Santa Claus House and downtown North Pole. Very convenient location for visiting the Fairbanks area. The house has a new queen size bed and a foldout sofa (queen size) downstairs. Upstairs is an enclosed loft with a full size bed (mattress on the floor.) Less than 5 minutes up the road is a nice hiking trail that can take you all the way to Ester Dome. The town of Ester offers the Golden Eagle Saloon where you can meet friendly locals and grill your own burger. On the way to the saloon you will pass the Ester Park with slides, outdoor picnic area, soccer field and paved ring with tricycles and small bikes to be used by children when the rink is not used as ice rink during winter months. Across from the park is the Ester Gas Station for convenient shopping. On your visit to Ester you will also pass the friendly log cabin Ester post office. The Blue Loon Restaurant is also close by, with a bar and good food, and nightly movie nights where you can bring your orders of both meals and drinks for enjoyment. The Blue Loon also hosts concerts and comedy nights. About five minute drive to Fairbanks brings you to Lemongrass, one of Fairbanks' favorite Thai restaurants. There are also two convenience stores nearby (Ester Gas and Gold Hill gas station) as well as large grocery stores (about 6 miles) such as Safeway and Fred Meyer.
There is a nice bike path in front of the house that can take you to Ester or to Fairbanks. All of the Fairbanks area, especially the University of Alaska and its museum, is close by and the drive to Fairbanks is a short five minutes on the highway.
Downtown Fairbanks, Fairbanks Farmer's Market, Pioneer Park and many other Fairbanks tourist destinations are within 15 minute drive. A little longer drive will be to North Pole, Chena Hot Springs and Chatanika Lodge.
