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.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while visiting friends in the area. It was a nice, private location yet had all the amenities we needed (electricity, water, washer/dryer). Fairbanks was a short drive away also. It was far enough away from town to allow us some privacy yet close enough for us to seek out activities or restaurants if we chose to do so. The cabin had everything we needed! Colleen was not home during the time we stayed but was always available to answer any questions we had via text. The first morning we were here, the sky was clear and we could see all of the mountains in the distance. Made for an amazing view while enjoying our morning coffee on the deck!! You could also see the city of Fairbanks down below. If you are looking for a perfect, quiet getaway with an amazing view, this is it! Can't say enough how awesome our stay was!! Thanks Colleen for the wonderful accommodations!!

Unique way to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the only place to stay while in Fairbanks! Colleen, the host, is helpful and friendly. The yurt is out of town which means that it is quiet and has a real Alaska feel. It does take longer to get to places (about 20 minutes), but it is completely worth it. You do have to travel on a dirt roads to get here, which wasn't something we were expecting so just know about that. Go slowly up the driveway.

As I'm typing this, I'm warm and dry with electricity and wifi while listening to a light rain fall on the outside of the yurt. It is the best of both worlds. Everyone should stay here.

great yurt

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It was a very comfortable and cozy yurt with all the amenities we needed. The view was beautiful, and my son fell in love with the dogs that live nearby. If they could have only fit in our luggage... About 15 minute drive into Fairbanks, we loved being just a bit out of town.

A wonderful getaway place

  • 5 of 5

Colleen's Yurt is not just clean, comfortable and cozy, but it's so unique. This is our first Yurt experience, we loved it so much. Especially our 9 year old daughter, for her, sleeping at a loft with ladder going up and a skylight, it was her childhood dream coming true.

The location of this Yurt is perfect, about 30 mins from the airport, an easy drive. And it's close to one of the two best Aurora viewing spots - Murphy Dome ( just 20 mins drive), and close to the best dog sledding tour in town - The Black Spruce Dog Sledding. When the aurora is very active you can also view it right in front of the yurt.

Colleen is very kind and warm, she advised us how to check Aurora activities, and even reminded me with text when she sensed aurora may be coming up on the sky. We also enjoyed soaking in the hot tub next to her main house, with light snow flying in the sky, it was beautiful.

Her beautiful dog Neicha was such a delight to be with, he is so smart and sweet, my daughter still misses him.

We can't wait to go back another time soon!
