About Jutta Zahnen

My husband and I are 58 years old and Germans. We emigrated in 2011 and enjoy to live in this great nature. We are located in North Pole, own a wonderful home and built our cabin by ourselves. As we live on the property, we are there for all the little needs every day. My husband owns his own company: alaska-wildlife-guide. He loves to show the customers, why we love this great gorgeous country and guides them to the best places of our area. I take care of our cabin and try to spoil our visitors as much as I can. I offer Wellness- and Energy Massages on my property as well. We both speak German and English.

Jutta Zahnen purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jutta Zahnen chose Alaska

We choose this property, because our dream was to live in the nature, nestled in the forest, enjoying wildlife. It is a great property to explore the Northern Lights in the winter months, having a cup of coffee and enjoy a camp fire.

What makes this cabin unique

Our property is very central, close to North Pole (with shops, post office, pharmacy and restaurants and the famous Santa Claus House), around the corner to our gorgeous Chena Lakes.

You need 25 min to Fairbanks if you are interested in culture and sightseeing.

Weather you like to hike, swim, fish in summer or ice fish, Dog mush or drive to the Arctic Circle, Chena Hot Springs in winter......this is a great point to start your adventure.

Let us help you to plan your vacation.

We live close to the cabin and are always there for your needs.

A wonderful way to begin our Alaskan adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our week's stay at Jutta and Rainer's cabin was all that we could hope for and more. The kitchen was well appointed, the sleeping accommodations superb and the hot shower- as hot as one could take it in the midst of the surrounding beauty of nature. We didn't know exactly what to expect with the outdoor toilet, but it far exceeded our expectations...(much nicer than some indoor toilets).The best part was the warm and genuine hospitality shown by this wonderful couple. We enjoyed our many visits with them, sharing stories and things we have in common. We head out tomorrow for the remainder of our adventure, but are a little sad to leave this part behind.

Would book again!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the hospitality, cleanliness, and location. We drove ourselves and it was easy to find from the airport. Jutta is very attentive to anything you may need, and we were warm and cozy. Easy commute into Fairbanks and surrounding areas. We are happy that we chose to stay here during our trip to North Pole rather than in town or in a hotel!

Comfortable & Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very cozy and warm. The owner, Rainer, is very friendly and helpful. He was quick in resolving any queries or issues we had.

The only problem was the outside toilet and open shower, as for us 35 degree Fahrenheit is quite cold :).

This was clearly mentioned in description, but just a guideline for people traveling in late september. It was definitely worth the experience though. Hot water & Flush in the toilet will be a great addition to this amazing cabin :)

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great review. Yes this is Alaska, you never know when the weather changes, this year it changed early for sure. As we want to provide the authentic " Alaskan Feeling" we provide the Outhouse with water and the Outdoor shower ( hot in 10 sec.) in summer. For the months that are colder we have this back up plan (Forbes Laundry shower "around the corner"). The most customers love our set up and it is a great experience to come back to the basics again for not much money. They book our cabin to get a way from it all and get the true feeling of Alaska. I am sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your update again and for your stay. Best wishes Jutta Zahnen

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Clean and well furnished. Especially appreciated the heater for that August cold front.Great location, a short drive to restaurants and supermarket. Somewhat farther to Fairbanks. Gracious, helpful hosts.
