Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Fairbanks - Nature Cabins LLC

2 bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), sleeps 4

This solar cabin is a destination for travelers who want a unique Alaska experience.

Cabin living is close to nature. Outside your front door are trails for hiking and cross-country skiing. Explore nearby duck ponds. Pick blueberries. Avoid the moose. Photograph nature in all seasons. Summer trails are often wet, so wear boots.

You won't be 'roughing it' too much. The solar cabin has two bedrooms, carpeting, indoor composting toilet, full kitchen, and a hot shower building. The cabin has no running water. Enough fresh water is provided in five-gallon containers for drinking, cooking, dish washing, and hand washing. An modern indoor composting toilet is safe and sanitary.

The solar cabin offers economical, clean, private, and quiet living for the short-term vacationer. This is a no-smoking property (no smoking indoors or outdoors).

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • not suitable for elderly or infirm

Solar cabin stay

  • 5 out of 5
It was an interesting experience to "rough it" a bit and see how solar living can be sustainable! Composting toilet is weird, but usuable...missed the sink more than running water. Glad for the chance to try it and also be out of town a bit...moose tracks appeared in the driveway, but we didn't see the moose. Cabin had all the comforts, but the stairs to upper level was a bit challenging for seniors!Host was very helpful in managing stay and also gave tips on what to see and do... Museum of the North was amazing, esp. the architecture. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Yes, the stairway to the upstairs bedrooms is steep and anyone considering this rental property should know this in advance. Guests can always use the fold-out couchs downstairs if they like, but nearly all guests sleep in the confortable beds upstairs. The bedroom balcony offers a panoramic view of the surrounding waterfowl refuge and, on a clear day, the Alaska Mountain Range. Thanks for the review. -- Eric

Fairbanks cabins - diamonds in the rough

  • 4 out of 5
Put aside your preconceived ideas about renting a cabin off the grid. Apart from the lack of running water the similarities end there. These spacious two-story cabins are powered by solar photovoltaic panels and have all the comforts of home: electricity, heat, full-sized refrigerator, TV, and stove. The composting toilet is odor free so it seems like a regular toilet. A separate shower facility is clean and private with a locking door, including a running water sink and a large prep area. Set among the black spruce forest of Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge you feel secluded and away from the noise of Fairbanks. It's a nice feeling to stay there knowing you are not contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. Eric, the owner, is a very knowledgeable and friendly guy. Overall, I highly recommend staying at these cabins.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this wonderful review. I'll just add that the cabin is on the utility grid so electricity is always on 24-hours a day. Sunshine or nighttime! -- Eric

Owner's Response: I understand there have been mixed reviews on the composting toilet. Mostly positive reviews I see. Composting toilets can't compare to gallon-per-flush toilets that require a full septic system (not an option with our local permafrost soils). -- Eric

We loved the cabin. It was comfortable and clean.
It was close to everything in Fairbanks, but far enough away to feel completely out in the country.
Loved the composting toilet as we had always been curious about them.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying. "Quiet" and "private" are the best words I've found to describe my cabin right next to a large waterfowl refuge.

Great Fun

  • 5 out of 5
Our cabin has a great 2nd story deck and looked out over a spruce forest...very relaxing. The compost toilet was fascinating and the shower house has a nice shower. I believe it is still a work in progress and when all done will be even better. We hit the weather just right...came from rainy Anchorage to sunny, warm Fairbanks (although we later found out that we missed 3 sunny days in Anchorage!). We did the touristy things...The Discovery Paddlewheeler and the Goldmine..Dredge # 8 and walked Creamers Field. Our big regret was that we didn't have enough time to see the UFA museum.
I don't know about the other beds, but the little twin on the 2nd floor was very comfortable. The kids (2 14yr olds) thought the cabin was cool. So did the adults.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. I'll add that your stay was when the wild blueberries were starting to ripen. The cabin is surrounded by blueberries and cranberries that ripen in late August. Yum. -- Eric
