About Mark DeCorso

I am a long time Alaskan and I live in Fairbanks with my wife and six children. I have traveled and lived all over Alaska, working as a commercial fisherman in Kodiak, fishing for crab on the Bering Sea and working at public radio stations in Bethel and McGrath. Our family has traveled extensively in Alaska to more than 40 Alaska Native villages. In 2011, we spent nine months driving through Canada and the lower 48 states. In 2013, we drove from Alaska to Chile. We have spent extended time in Canada, Morocco, the Amazon, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile. Our children have a lot of interests - one play bagpipes, one raises dairy goats, one is doing an internship in Bolivia. We have traveled in many ways and rented houses, apartments and rooms in several countries. We know what it is like to rent a vacation rental and we are available to help in any way we can.

Mark DeCorso purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Mark DeCorso chose Fairbanks

My wife and I bought the property in 1993. Growing up in Fairbanks, I spent a lot of time thinking about where I would want to live should I stay here. The property is truly on of the most beautifully set parcels I have ever come across. We were very fortunate that it came available at the time we were ready to buy.

After my father retired from the University and my parents moved away to Florida, they wanted to continue to return for Alaskan summers. My Dad and I built the cabin in 2007 so they could live nearby their six grandchildren. Since they are here for only a few months each year, we have decided to make it available to you when they are not.

What makes this cabin unique

Windy Creek Cabin is in a beautiful forested setting at the end of a private drive. For aurora viewing, the is very little light pollution (mostly the moon). It is a peaceful and secluded place that I'm sure you will enjoy.

Wonderful and Warm Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
This is an amazing little treasure. 2-floor cabin has 2 warm, cozy rooms and a loft perfect for kids. Our party of 6 fit comfortably. All the household necessities were provided and the owner is easy to communicate with, meeting our every need. Will absolutely never bother to look for another place to stay in Fairbanks. This place has it all.

Not too far from airport but with secluded feel!

  • 4 out of 5
A friend and I stayed in Mark's cabin for the weekend. We were visiting Faibanks in March hoping to see the Aurora. The cabin was very comfortable in terms of space, temperatue, and basic accomodations. Its perfect if you're looking for a more authentic/secluded cabin feel that isn't too far from the airport.

Mark was also very helpful and friendly. Before we arrived he provided directions and other suggestions on getting from the airport to the cabin (i.e. - take the route past Safeway and stock up on some groceries). He even met us at the cabin when we arrived, despite the fact that we didn't get in until after midnight!

All in all, the cabin met our needs perfectly. Plus, we had great aurora viewing while in Fairbanks so the trip was a great success!!!
