A short 20 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.
Mark was very helpful in getting us situated, pointing out things of interest, and indicating where best to see the Aurora. We were very comfortable there. The heater worked well and there were extra space heaters for the rooms. The place still needs a little finishing work (trim around the windows and top of walls), but that is just asthetics which didn't bother us.
We enjoyed our stay. Cabin had a well equipped kitchen, and we were very comfortable there. Excellent location outside of town, for that real "Alaska" feel.
The stay was very pleasant overall; the location of the property is away from town, the peace and quiet, which is what we were looking for. Out host Mark had given clear instructions on how to reach the place. It is a large property and easily hosted 6 of us, and it has as described a well furnished kitchen. It would have helped if there was an extra bathroom.
My experience here was great! I loved the cabin and it was everything I expected! The owners are great and very nice to work with. I would stay here again!
This is a very comfortable and cozy cabin in a beautiful location...perfect for a group of people who want quiet and solitude, and also quick access to town.
The property was well stocked. We were able to grill and cook meals. There are a lot if trees so we were able to look at birds and chipmunks. The property was well maintained. Mark offered assistance and made us feel at home.
