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.

Nice Yurt but Management Improvements Needed!

  • 2 of 5

The yurt is quite nice except for a minor leak in the roof that is in bad need of repair. Weren't told about this by the owner until after the fact. Our stay was peaceful but there were some issues that could have been avoided by the owner like having a septic system cleaned out in the middle of our stay. This caused for a VERY smelly afternoon and could have been avoided with some proactive scheduling by the owner. The weather during our stay was quite warm which lead to some not so comfortable afternoons. The owner said she had purchased an A/C unit but had not had it installed. Yet another area were being proactive could have made our stay more comfortable. When we arrived...after about 20 hours of traveling...we met with the owner and she gave us a quick run down of the yurt including the amenities found within the yurt. In my post traveling haze, I didn't hear her instructions regarding the television remote and unfortunately I got the remote messed up on my first attempt to use the TV. When I called the owner, she made me feel like a toddler being scolded for not listening to the teacher at school. She definitely seemed unhappy that she had to explain how to use the TV remote a second time and she also made me feel like I was inconveniencing her by calling with a question. She quickly rushed me through the instructions on the remote control and ended the phone call very quickly as it appeared she had more important things to do other than supporting her guests. After this negative interaction with the owner, I made sure to not contact her anymore as it appeared she was too busy to be bothered by her paying guests.

Hurting for some yurting!

  • 5 of 5

First time staying in yurt and we are thrilled we did! My husband and I had a wonderful time! It has everything we needed and wanted including lots of space, full size kitchen, huge windows, modern bathroom, extremely clean, secluded and in a commuteable distance to a store (just in case). It also included a beautiful drive when returning from the days activities. Colleen is very attentive and friendly. We felt so much at home that stayed longer than originally planned.

Everything was perfect! Thanks colleen!!! Will definitely stay again!!

AMAZING!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed here and was amazed by, well, all of it! The Yurt is very up to date, clean and well maintained. If this is your first time to Alaska, as it was ours, most of the roads going up on mountains are dirt/gravel; helpful information to know if you are renting a car. The property owner is very accommodating, responsive and easy to work with. It's very quiet with an incredible view from the deck.

Epic epicness

  • 5 of 5

The yurt is a little out there but if you're going to Fairbanks, don't you want to be "out there"? We loved staying here and even debated building a yurt of our own back at home. It's well built and the floor plan is well thought out. You can sleep a ton of people here. You don't really have to go very far to see wildlife either; we saw moose and coyotes just roaming about. There's even a laundry room to wash/dry your clothes. It's pretty convenient if you're going to be hiking and sweating in your clothes.

I would definitely come back here again and again.

Colleen was very responsive.

We had a wonderful time and would recommend this place to anyone.

Happy trails!
