Whether traveling to Fairbanks under the summer's midnight sun or winter's aurora borealis - you will find this peaceful setting a perfect base for your interior Alaskan vacation.
This 3,000sqft natural log home was built almost entirely from the white spruce trees that grew on the property. The original owner cut, hand peeled, and allowed the logs to dry. He then contracted a premier log home builder to hand scribe each log to fit into place in 1990. The log detail is a thing of beauty.
This premium log home offers views of the Alaska Range and Denali from the inside loft or relaxing on the grand outdoor deck. During dark, clear nights enjoy star gazing and the excitement of the aurora borealis unobstructed by city lights from either inside or outside this well-appointed, truly Alaskan home.
The large upstairs loft bedroom sleeps four in a queen size bed and a pair of twin beds. Please note the set of twin beds are accessed over a low log wall using three stairs on each side of log wall. This gives some privacy from each of these adjoining sleeping spaces in the loft. This is a popular place to sleep and brings out the child in all my guests. The pair of downstairs bedrooms in the walk-out basement, each have queen size beds. All the bedrooms have views and are accessed via stairwells. There is a bathroom conveniently located on all three levels.
There is a spacious eat-in kitchen and also a huge dining area and seats large groups comfortably. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, and even spices.
The sitting area near the fire is the most popular place to read, while the two separate living areas have televisions available for your viewing pleasure.
The keyless entry makes access convenient and there is no worry about lost keys.
Off street parking is plentiful and has headbolts for winter guests to plug in their vehicles when temperatures drop to sub zero.
I believe the peace and tranquility that guests enjoy while staying at this vacation rental comes from the "groundedness" of the home being built from truly local logs. It can't get much closer than that!
I arrived in Alaska in 1975. I have lived in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Delta Junction, Petersburg, Arctic Circle Hot Springs Resort, and North Pole. Construction work took me around the state, but I found Fairbanks to be just the right size town for me. The people here are amazing! I have worked as an iron worker, retailer, cashier, florist, receptionist, teacher, and business owner. My talented children all live here in Fairbanks and I am now a proud grandmother.
Kathy Alonzo purchased this lodge in 2005
I bought this gorgeous natural log home property to fulfill a life-long dream of owning a bed and breakfast. After ten years of operating the B&B, I noted the need for family vacation rentals in this area and am moving in that direction. Book EARLY!
Serene Natural Setting
Natural Log Construction
We stayed for 5 nights. The house had everything we needed. Kathy has provided many little amenities to make the stay even better including boxes of tissue and night lights (even though it never got dark while we were there). The kitchen is fully equipped making it easy to make some home cooked meals. The view is tremendous from the deck. We spent most of our time out there waiting for Denali to show herself - which she did on our last day. All in all, a very very nice home. Thanks Kathy, for making our stay there comfortable and memorable.
Not only is this one of the most beautiful log homes I have seen but the view is spectacular and Kathy is a pleasure to work with. She made our stay truly a memorable one!
I seldom do reviews. Kathy is awesome. Her attention to detail is amazing. You can rent as stand alone or B & B. Clean, roomy, well maintained, as advertised. The view is to die for. The pictures on VRBO simply do not do this property justice. You will not be disappointed.
My family came to Fairbanks to visit my son who is in the Army. There were 7 or us visiting. The house was a great size and super comfortable. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the master bathroom upstairs does not have a door and only has a shower handle in the tub. It has a curtain so some modesty can be maintained, but without a door it meant family members really did not feel comfortable using that bathroom where whatever was going on was somewhat public. If no one else stayed in the upstairs save one couple, it probably does not matter. Also there were 4 men in our group and they really prefer a full shower so everyone used the shower in the basement bath. That was not really a big deal because the rest of the house was very comfortable. Love the deck and the picturesque yard. We did not get to see Mt. McKinley due to smokey weather, but loved sitting together chatting on the deck anyway. Thank you for such an "at home" feeling for our trip to Fairbanks.
Had a wonderful accommodations. Highly recommend the place. Beautiful facilities and wonderful breakfast.
Set in the heart of the boreal forest, A Moose in the Garden is within 15 minutes of the airport, train station, Riverboat Discovery dock, Ice Park, Ester, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
