Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved Colleen's beautiful log cabin and her friendly dogs. The perfect spot to stay with family, enjoy a family meal, sleep comfortably, and enjoy the aurora. What an exciting stay we had. The view is incredible. An experience we will always remember.

Fantastic home outside of Fairbanks!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best homes my family has ever rented with VRBO! Great views, plenty of room, hot tub on the deck was a bonus. Loved the foosball table in the kitchen. You can tell this is a family home, very warm and inviting, not your usual rental. The black out curtains in the MBR were appreciated. My daughter loved the alcove with the bed in the loft. We have rented many homes and Colleen's house is special. I also appreciated the detailed and accurate directions along with the info book on the counter, very helpful. Great location, feels like you are in the middle of the forest yet only about 15 minutes into Fairbanks.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for 6 days in the middle of a long trip through Alaska--it was the perfect place to rest and recharge for the next leg of our journey. We were a bit wary once we got on the unpaved roads leading up to the property (as a side note, yes, the roads leading to it are rough, including the driveway, but you'll quickly get used to it), but any hesitation went away the minute we saw the house! Full of Alaskan charm, equipped with every amenity you could ask for, this place is perfect. The weather didn't exactly cooperate for us while we were there, but we did get to see the Northern Lights one night, and if we had to be kept inside by cold and rainy weather anywhere, this house was the perfect place.

Love the cabin

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a rental, STOP here and look no further. This one has everything and more. We could live in it. Colleen was very accommodating. It has beautiful views, well laid out for 6 people and nice room darkening shades in the master. It was a great house to stay in.

Beautiful house with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The house was roomy and easily accommodated our group of 8. It had everything we could need. The living room and deck offer a great view of Fairbanks and views of the Alaska Range, including Denali (which we were fortunate to see every day of our stay). The house is about 10-15 minute drive from town and part of the drive is on a dirt road, which was no problem for our sedans. My only regret was not getting to meet Colleen as we were out and about everyday!
