Photos and Description of the North Pole vacation cabin rental

Large (1100 Sq Ft) Log Cabin Sleeps 1-6 with private driveway and parking.

Welcome to Moose Walk Cabin. Your Alaskan home away from home is a two-story log home nestled on a quiet wooded lot by a large stream. The cabin is in a prime location, close to activities, but still remote enough to get that Alaska wilderness feel.

Perfect for aurora viewing, a romantic get away, family vacation, or extended stay.


Moose Walk Cabin is situated in the heart of all your Interior Alaska destinations: North Pole Alaska. Grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, and the famous Santa Claus house are a short 4 miles from the cabin. Downtown Fairbanks and Fairbanks International Airport are a quick 20 minute drive.


If comfortably watching natures greatest winter exhibition (the Aurora Borealis) is on your bucket list; then you've found the right place. No one knows what time of night the aurora will appear. Stay nice and cozy snuggled on the couch in the cabin, while you anxiously gaze out the large picture windows for the mystical aurora to begin its dance. While outside capturing those magical moments, don't worry about getting cold and missing a single second of the aurora. Nestle up to a crackling fire in front of the cabin as the skies mesmerize you with magical hues of green, purple, and red. Paths on the frozen ice are kept free of snow for alternate aurora shooting locations.

The below link is your view of the aurora from the cabin living room.

The winter weather turns our fishing kingdom into your very own private ice skating arena and hockey rink. Sticks, pucks, goals and some ice skates are provided. Playing in your winter boots is also a lot of fun--and safer for those that can't skate.

At the front porch, strap on your skis or snowshoes and trek out into the winter wonderland. You will find endless miles of trails waiting for you to discover them.

Are you looking for a personal snowmobile or ice fishing tour that departs from the cabin? Your host Rod is a Licensed Guide and personally guides outdoor trips year round. Book your trip today.

After a long day of braving the Alaskan cold, unwind by the wood stove as you listen to the wood crackle and watch the flames dance across the logs. Wood is free and provided on site. We are happy to provide instruction for the wood stove. The wood stove will heat the cabin but not necessary to use. The cabin has a fuel oil heater as the primary heat source.


Paddle down the meandering stream in a canoe for a romantic trip or to spend quality time with the kids. Two canoes with multiple sizes of life vests are provided.

Jump in the canoe or amble along the bank to fish for grayling by fly rod or spinning rod. Grayling are easier to catch on a fly rod. Don't worry if you have never fished with a fly rod. It is easy. Every guest who has used a fly rod for the first time at Moose Walk Cabin has caught fish. Please let us know if you need fishing instruction. We are happy to help. Fly rods and spinning rods are at the cabin for your use.

From the front door you can blaze endless miles of hiking, and ATV trails. Bring your ATVs; there is plenty of parking.

Put your feet up and relax on the recliner couches as you look through the picture windows at the amazing aurora or view of the stream that abounds with wildlife. Moose, squirrels, ducks, Bald Eagles, owls, beavers, porcupines, and foxes are seen almost daily.

After a long day of site seeing, kick back with a movie on Starz or Showtime. With 235 channels to choose from, you won't miss your favorite show or sports team.

Slap on your apron. If you plan to cook for a large family or an elegant dinner for two, the full size kitchen, packed with utensils and dishes, is sure to meet any chef's needs. The dining area comfortably seats 6.


Amble up the stairs where the open floor plan with two plush pillow top queen beds provide comfortable slumber and a futon gives the option of an additional full size bed.

Enjoy the full bathroom with combination shower/tub. Hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, towels, and washcloths provided.

Unpack the suitcases--get comfortable. The large dresser, and plenty of closet space for storage, let you feel right at home for longer stays.

The windows have blinds for privacy and to provide a darker room when the summer midnight sun is still glowing.


Circle around the fire-pit. It's the perfect place for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs. For those that want to cook a meal, a custom grill rack with a spit will meet your needs. If you don't have the time for open fire cooking, a propane grill is also provided.

Head to the large back yard for a game of horseshoes or playing catch with the kids.

Turn into the large private driveway with your car, truck w/ trailer, RV or even a bus. There is lots of parking--even for a greyhound bus.

A rental vehicle is necessary when visiting Alaska. Public transportation is not what you see in other countries and big cities. Taxis are available, but cost is typically more than a rental vehicle. A one-way taxi trip to the airport is around $60.00. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary, but recommended if you plan to drive to the Arctic Circle.
