A short 15 minutes north of Fairbanks, this 1,000 sq ft secluded log home at the end of a private road is surrounded by an old growth Paper Birch and White Spruce forest. A large, 500 sq ft deck with a propane grill makes this log home a relaxing get away under the Midnight Sun or the Northern Lights for couples, families or small groups.
Enjoy rest and relaxation at the end of the road, head out for a hike on the nearby trail system, grill Alaskan halibut or salmon on the deck. Take in the fine restaurants of Goldstream Valley or head to the world famous Howling Dog Saloon. The owners are long time Alaskans who have lived and traveled all over the state and are happy to help you plan your stay or journey.
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
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.
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.
I really enjoyed this cabin. We definately lucked out in finding it on HomeAway. It was exactly what we were looking for and lots of room. It was nice and warm inside and no running out of hot water. The balcony was large which you can see from the pic. We went in January and considering we are from Austin, Tx, having a nice warm place was great. It definately was a winter wonderland when we went and it was so quite outside with only the noises of the forrest. Mark, the owner, was exceptionly wonderful and waited up for us to arrive (which was 1:30am) to show us around. He was also a great guide with all the fun things to do around Fairbanks and showed us a great location for view the Northern Lights (which was amazing). I definately would go back again.
We booked this cabin for a couple nights to celebrate my husbands birthday. We brought along our 3 young kids and we all had a blast! The toyo stove was nice and cozy warm, the kitchen had all we needed to make meals and best of all there was a tub of toys that entertained the heck out of my kiddos. Mark was super nice and informative. The cabin had a nice secluded feel but it was also an easy drive to Fairbanks. Great price.
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.
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!!!
