Ground-floor suite with gorgeous mountain/valley view, private sauna & patio

With a captivating view of the Alaska Range and Tanana Valley, this Fairbanks home is a gorgeous glimpse of Alaska’s natural beauty. Perched on the hillside among evergreens, you’ll have your own cozy retreat with a light-filled living space, a covered patio, and a private sauna to help you unwind each evening.

You’ll be seven miles from the heart of Fairbanks, three miles from the University of Alaska Museum and UAF cross country ski/snowshoe trails, and five miles from the airport for the perfect combination of easy access and forest solitude.

This property is the ground floor only of a larger log home constructed by the owners, with a separate private entrance. Its arctic entry leads to a roomy living and dining area steeped in natural light through a bank of south-facing windows. The adjacent kitchen accommodates convenient meal prep. This comfortable, 1,100-square-foot suite features two queen bedrooms, a bathroom, and a laundry nook with a stackable washer/dryer. All rooms are thoughtfully appointed with log highlights and Alaskan art. Lodging amenities include fast WiFi, a smart TV, and a four-person sauna.

Northern Lights are visible from the front yard on memorable "aurora nights," and endless summer evenings may be enjoyed on the outdoor patio with a grill, padded furniture, a hammock, and a porch swing as the midnight sun circles the horizon. Gorgeous views of alpenglow on the Alaska Range are visible in
every season.

The Historic Pump House Restaurant at the foot of Chena Ridge originally housed the pump station that piped water from the Chena River to the water giants at the gold dredge in Ester. This home is situated on the historic Ester Gold Dredge ditch. An original wooden-pipe diversion gate from the gold rush era is nestled among white spruce at the front of the property.

From its tranquil forest setting, let Snowshoe Inn become your gateway to your far north adventures!
