Love the cabin

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rental, STOP here and look no further. This one has everything and more. We could live in it. Colleen was very accommodating. It has beautiful views, well laid out for 6 people and nice room darkening shades in the master. It was a great house to stay in.

Beautiful house with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The house was roomy and easily accommodated our group of 8. It had everything we could need. The living room and deck offer a great view of Fairbanks and views of the Alaska Range, including Denali (which we were fortunate to see every day of our stay). The house is about 10-15 minute drive from town and part of the drive is on a dirt road, which was no problem for our sedans. My only regret was not getting to meet Colleen as we were out and about everyday!
