PRIVATE CABIN @ ALASKA'S ONLY 100+ YEAR OLD CHENA HOT SPRINGS RESORT

Fairbanks Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom (Sleeps 2) NO bathroom or running water! Comfy King Size Log Bed

Please DO NOT contact the front desk at the resort to rent this cabin or ask anything about it. It is privately owned & operated. Unfortunately, they will not be able to assist you. Thanks!

2 PERSON MAXIMUM - ONE KING SIZE BED ONLY.

It is a DRY cabin which means it does NOT have a BATHROOM or running water like all of the cabins on the resort property. However, there is a restroom open 24 hours per day in the Activity Center for your use.

The cabin is completely renovated and looks and feels like a deluxe cabin with nice amenities. All other resort owned cabins are occupied by employees and are not available for rent.

Bathrooms are only a ONE minute walk from the cabin in the Activity Center (24 hours daily-best option), the Pool House lobby (7AM-12AM) or $15 daily fee per person per day, to use the showers and rock lake, Full Service Restaurant/Lounge (7AM-10PM). 3 outhouses are within a 30 second walk available 24 hours a day for that truly Alaskan experience.

FYI - We only rent the cabin for a 2 NIGHT MINIMUM.

So whether you want to book and stay only one night, we block the cabin for a 2 night stay. There is no discount for only staying one night.

However, you won't have to check out by 11AM the next morning. It makes for a leisurely visit and you can stay a little later the next morning since the cabin has been reserved for the 2nd night.

Enjoy a truly once in a lifetime rustic Alaskan experience by staying in our adorable cabin on the resort property!

The cabin is the ONLY one available for rent at the resort and located next to the Moose Lodge.

Heated with an oil heated stove keeping it warm and toasty even in the coldest temperatures!

Comfy King Size Log Bed.

We loved this cabin! We were here for three nights and it was perfect! Thank you for the snacks and drinks!!! We left a few for the next guests. The bed is perfect and we watched many, many movies. We recommend to all guests in winter to go dog sledding and take a plane ride. We had an incredible night of viewing the aurora. What an experience. Another Tip: Try the lamb chops in the restaurant; they're outrageous! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

We had a wonderful time! The hot springs were great, especially in the snow. The cabin is amazing, so cozy and comfortable. I brought my fiancé up here as a surprise for his birthday and we had a really wonderful time. We love all the photographs of the Northern Lights and the Chihuly glass. The fact that when it's snowing outside, you can stay in here and be warm and watch the snow come down. Thank you for all of the energy and time and effort you have put into making this place such a welcoming home away from home. We didn't see any Northern Lights this time, which was a little sad, but we will see them on our next trip up to Chena.
