Overview

About the property

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 snowmobile , ice fishing tour or Aurora viewing ice fishing tour? 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.

About Terri Pangborn

We are a retired 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 waited 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. The private aurora views are amazing. 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.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

What are you waiting for... book your reservation at the Moose Walk Cabin! My husband and I stayed for 7 nights and it was amazing. So much better than a hotel room. You have your own house to enjoy during your trip. Terri and Rod are exceptional hosts. We even booked a snowmobile tour with Rod and it was fantastic... at first my husband was hesitant to book it but it ended up being one of his favorite parts of the trip. Seriously, don't heistate. If we are ever back in the Fairbanks area again (hopefully in the warmer months) we will definitely stay at Moose Walk Cabin.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

Moose Walk Cabin is an absolutely terrific place in North Pole / Fairbanks. Everything was top-notch, from the reservation process to accommodations.

The owner, Terri, was in contact with me from the initial reservation, with arrival information and suggestions on what to do when there, to making sure all questions were answered.

Upon arrival, she introduced herself and gave me a tour of the cabin. The cabin was precisely what I wanted. Heat, during our stay there were times of -35, was supplied by an electric heater and a wood burning stove. Terri gave step-by-step instructions on operation of the stove so this city-dweller would have no problems,

The kitchen was wonderfully appointed with modern appliances; a washer dryer was even available in the cabin.

The bedroom upstairs was great with two queen beds (although the cabin is capable of sleeping six).

A primary reason for traveling to the area was for observing the Northern Lights. My wife and I were extremely fortunate they appeared every night, and they did not disappoint. We didn't have to leave the cabin to take pictures, the view was fabulous! Terri even called one night to make sure we were seeing them. The pictures for the cabin are precisely what was seen..an unbelievable sight.

The cabin is picture perfect and Terri keeps it in excellent condition. By the way, she even has a surprise of a carrot cake in the refrigerator.

My stay in North Pole / Fairbanks was everything I had hoped and more due to the stay at Moose Walk Cabin.

Most amazing rental!

  • 5 of 5

Apologies for the late review. Myself and my husband rented Moose Walk Cabin for 7 nights in early December and left with a million beautiful memories! It was our first time in Alaska and Terri the owner couldn't have been more helpful. From the time we booked to the time we left Terri was always at hand to answer any questions and help with anything we needed. Rod her husband has his own tour company and is an amazing guide. We went out on the Ski Doos and went ice fishing, what an awesome experience. The cabin was beautiful and spotless clean and the wood burning fire was great even though there is another heating system in the Cabin so that it is heated at all times. We we lucky enough to see and video Moose outside the cabin! There is lots to see and do in Fairbanks. Dog mushing is a must and Chena Hotsprings is a great day out, it's about 90 minute drive but a beautiful one. The Safeway store, macdonalds, subway, blockbuster and Santa Clause house are all only a few minutes drive from the cabin. If you are looking at this property and thinking of booking, just do it you won't be disappointed. We hope to return in the next few years. Thanks to Terri and Rod for making our stay so special.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property is owned and operated with the love and care of a cherished home! Terri, the owner is authentic, welcoming and a joy to know. From beginning to end Terri treated us like family encouraging my wife and I to enjoy her home as if it were our own. No attention to detail is overlooked where the home is stocked with every convienence from coffee to firewood for the fantastic fireplace. The temperature outside right now is -35 degrees below zero and the home is warm and delightful. From our experience, the property and owners are wonderful and only regret that we couldn't stay longer.

Excellent place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and very nicely decorated; it was equipped with everything needed from clean towels, hot water and plenty of wood to keep you warm to an assortment of coffee, tea and cocoa to choose from. It was very nice and quiet and the owners Terri and Rod were really kind and friendly and were always available to assist me in getting maps and suggesting activities or answering questions, I really enjoyed my stay and am really glad I didn't stay at a hotel, If I ever go back to visit Alaska, this is the place where I would like to stay, I definitely recommend this rental property over any hotel if you want to relax, have privacy and feel at home away from home, I absolutely loved it!
