Photos and Description of the Fairbanks vacation lodge rental

3 Bedroom 2.5 Baths sleeps 8 people. Mountain and aurora views.

Whether traveling to Fairbanks under the summer's midnight sun or winter's aurora borealis - you will find this peaceful setting a perfect base for your interior Alaskan vacation.

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.

This premium log home offers views of the Alaska Range and Denali from the inside loft or relaxing on the grand outdoor deck. 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 walk-out basement, each have queen size beds. All the bedrooms have views and are accessed via stairwells. There is a bathroom conveniently located on all three levels.

There is a spacious eat-in kitchen and also a huge dining area and seats large groups comfortably. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, and even spices.

The sitting area near the fire is the most popular place to read, while the two separate living areas have televisions available for your viewing pleasure.

The keyless entry makes access convenient and there is no worry about lost keys.

Off street parking is plentiful and has headbolts for winter guests to plug in their vehicles when temperatures drop to sub zero.

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 much closer than that!
