A perfect place to stay when visiting Fairbanks or exploring Alaskas' interior!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a perfect location! Just a few minutes to Fairbanks, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods. Stunning views of sunrises, sunsets and the Aurora! Stayed 2 weeks and the yurt had everything we needed, just as described.  A fantastic "home base" to explore Alaskas' interior. The owner, Colleen, went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable, had what we needed for a particular excursion, and also that we didn't miss the northern lights. Roads were well maintained and our rented Toyota Rav4 handled it nicely. Left early one morning in 6 + inches of snow, and returned to a plowed driveway and parking area! Can't say enough about how positive the experience was and would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in the Fairbanks area.

Thank you Colleen,

Martara H.

A great place to stay but needs improvement

  • 3 of 5

The Yurt was absolutely a great place to stay and visit Fairbanks. I just wish the owner could replace the chipped cups and dishes and mismatched silverware. I felt I was visiting my kids at college. Also the wall mounted medicine cabinet/mirror over the shallow vanity made it impossible to brush your teeth or shave without cramming your face into the small space allowed. I did enjoy the two dogs that came to visit us. The yurt was clean and well maintained otherwise.

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my time at the yurt!!! Way more like a cabin than I had expected... Colleen was great and there was constant communication... I felt like it's the perfect distance from town, just far enough away to feel remote yet close enough to run into town for a meal or shopping!!! Loved it!!!

Great Winter Wonderland Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cozy & Warm Yurt. Great views of Fairbanks and sunrise & sunset (4 1/2 hr Day!!). Colleen was a helpful hostess and very accommodating. "Neicha" the visiting Malamute was a special treat and a gentle giant. Really enjoyed our stay and the easy access back to Fairbanks and UAF to visit our son and also to Moose Mountain and Murphy Dome.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

The yurt is gorgeous, and Colleen was beyond gracious and helpful. She even gave us tire chains to use, since the car rental place gave us a car with summer tires that simply do not cut it in an Alaskan November, and stayed with us till we got them on. She was extremely helpful with all questions. I would recommend this stay to anyone!

Superb !!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time visit to Alaska, Fairbanks- this yurt was the perfect location to view Aurora/Northern lights and we had a trip of a lifetime, thanks to very comfortable cabin with all amenities , views from the hill, away from city lights and above all a great hospitality from Colleen (and her lovely and very friendly dog Neiicha) , she made us feel home and well taking care of needs and guidance to all local places

Inside the yurt- hand crafted custome welcome notes , decor is so good. 10/10 for this place and I am recommending to all my friends & family - (who already fell in love with this place by looking at pictures and videos showed them)

Note : If you are not used to driving in snow, and planning to come during snow season -you need to have a 4x4/Awd to drive up slowly , roads are little steep but not to a great distance.

We witnessed Aurora first time just by walking outside the cabin, what a joy..my 8yr old son couldn't hold the excitement and wanted to stay in freezing cold

Overall - simply Superb!! We had trip of a lifetime

Thank you Colleen !
