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 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!

Amazing - We Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in this mountain yurt. We stayed March 9-12th for our honeymoon and wish we would have been here for our entire trip - it started to feel like home! When we arrived we were greeted by a gentle giant of a dog who became quite a special part of each day. The yurt is comfortable, warm and very spacious inside. We loved that there was a full kitchen with supplies, a washer/dryer and large tv for relaxing in the evenings. The deck has a gorgeous view of the mountains by day, and a light glow of the city by night - stunning! It is tucked away up a beautiful mountain road with not much nearby. On our first full day it snowed and we skied Moose Mountain which was so much fun - we even saw moose on the slopes! Chena Hot Springs is a must while in Fairbanks, which is located a little over an hour from the yurt - but the drive is gorgeous and the swim is very relaxing. We loved it here so much we did not have any trouble returning at night to spend our evenings to cook our own dinners, keeping a close eye on the sky for Auroras (which Colleen so graciously keeps an eye out for you!). We truly had a hard time leaving, so we will just have to be back! Thank you, Colleen, for such an amazing experience! Fairbanks is a true gem.
