Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Alaska - Moose Walk Cabin

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.

LOCATION

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.

WINTER VISITORS

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. www.rodsalaskanguideservice.com

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.

SUMMER VISITORS

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.

Downstairs:

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.

Upstairs:

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.

OUTSIDE

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.

GREAT TO KNOW INFO

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.

Not sure what there is to do in Interior Alaska? Ask about our list of recommended local attractions and activities.

About Terri Pangborn

We are an active duty military family. We were stationed in Fairbanks Alaska from 2005 to 2009. We were relocated by the military, but knew we wanted to return to Alaska for retirement. In 2011 we had the opportunity to return to Alaska. We have been waiting for 'just the right place' to become available, for us to start our retirement dream of owning/operating a vacation rental in Alaska. Moose Walk Cabin was exactly what our family was looking for. We absolutely love everything about Alaska. We look forward to making your stay in Alaska, no matter how long, a memorable experience.

Terri Pangborn purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Terri Pangborn chose Alaska

We chose this property because of the location and the cabin. We have moose all summer in our back yard and yet we are less than five minutes to town. We love the water access at our back door. We are able to canoe and fish any time during the summer. Mother nature turns our water into a hockey rink for winter fun. The icing on the cake is the amazing aurora viewing.

What makes this cabin unique

This private waterfront property allows travelers to have all the comforts from home while in Alaska. The tranquility, aurora views from the cabin steps, and wildlife are amazing. The cabin's Alaskan theme and charm makes this home away from home a truly unforgettable place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin really is a gem. Stay here--you won't be disappointed. Our family of 5 stayed for 45 days while we searched for a new home. Moose Walk Cabin had everything our family needed. We really enjoyed watching the wildlife through the large picture windows downstairs. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Everything you need to cook (minus food) is in the large kitchen. The wood fired sauna was a great treat to relax in on a cold winter day. A grocery store and the Santa Claus House are only three minutes away in North Pole.

Owner's Response: In summer moose are seen almost daily feeding in the stream in front of the cabin. The stream is filled with beautiful Rainbow Grayling fish. Two canoes and fishing poles are on site for guest use.

Exceptional property with outstanding host

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfectly located and backs right up to water with all kinds of wildlife. On the last night a bull moose came out to water. We went outside to watch and the only interruption was an aggravated squirrel. Yes, for those in our generation it was moose and squirrel. Terri is awesome. She makes you feel at home in a cabin with all the little things already thought through for you. This includes a welcome dessert. We have stayed with vrbo for many years in North America and Europe and this was one of the top two stays we have had. Well done, Terri.

Super!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin, the property and Terri were all outstanding. We have stayed in many VRBO cabins and houses around the world, but this is among the best. Clean and quiet. Well-equipped and comfortable. We stayed 11 nights and were sad to leave.

Better than we ever imagined!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderfully comfortable and romantic setting for our vacation! The cabin had everything we could have needed and the host was very welcoming and warm. The location is great-quiet area with great views of the night sky, but still close to town. I would recommend this cabin for anyone wanting to visit Fairbanks!

Perfect aurora views

  • 5 of 5

I came into our stay in Fairbanks worried we might not see auroras period, much less from the back porch of this cabin. Rest assured, if the auroras are out, you WILL see them-- mug of hot chocolate in hand. I watched with a cushioned patio bench under my tush; I watched standing on wide open ice just past the hockey rink Rod blows off for winter. The cabin met my aurora dreams in every way, so much so that we did NOT drive to Murphy Dome or Chena Hot Springs or Nordale Hwy to see the lights. Why would we?

Rod and Terri were perfect hosts and gave us that extra touch of TLC that made us feel more like visiting friends than vacationers. Two thumbs way up. Besides which, the cabin is wonderfully decorated, a real pleasure to the eye. Be mindful that plumbing has been retrofitted into the existing structure, so there is a pump that goes off every time the water turns on, but that just added to the Alaska experience for us. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
