Available Mid-August, 2022 (Maybe sooner): 730 square foot partially dry cabin on 2 quiet acres in upper Goldstream Valley.
Available for viewing by Appt. after May 1.
Unfurnished Cabin has a loft bedroom, open living space, full kitchen (newer propane stove/oven and full fridge), wood stove (Blaze King) and monitor-style stove, bathroom with composting toilet (plus outhouse), sink and shower, wood floors, cool woodwork, long driveway, and nice deck. VERY COMFORTABLE!
There is a 55 gal. interior holding tank (you fill by hand) and a 20 gal. hot water heater (for bathroom sink and shower). FYI: There are a number of 5 gallon water jugs at the house, and we fill them at the Fox Spring. All sinks drain to an outside gray water system - no buckets to haul! (Future improvements planned as well!)
This is a light, airy and comfortable cabin that sits on two quiet acres about 10 minutes to UAF campus. Super access to UAF ski trails, dog sled trails, Ester and Murphy Domes, Moose Mountain, etc High up, and on two open acres, so there are great views of Aurora in winter, plenty of light in spring and summer. Great hiking / walking right out the door.
Currently, this is a renewable lease through May 31, 2023. This set up is IDEAL for graduate student(s), professor or scientist, summer adventurer or ? who does fieldwork, climbs mountains, or travels during summers.
Why the unusual set up? Our family (ex-Fairbanks residents, including an Arctic researcher as well, now living Outside) uses the cabin most summers, thus the shorter lease and desire for someone on the go (or with somewhere else to reside) during June, July and maybe the first week or two in August while we make the pilgrimage up north.
(i.e.: Our last tenant was UAF Grad student who did summer research. He moved away in May and moved back in each fall.)
Cat(s) OK, dog(s) upon approval and with references onlysorry, no exceptions. There's a dog run already established and the hope is to put up a fenced enclosure this summer if we can.
This is a non-smoking/vaping cabininside or anywhere on property.
$1050/mo. plus utilities (electric, propane, stove fuel, firewood). First, last and deposit required (can be spread out if needed).
References required.
Email, text, call please for more details This is a lovely spot to spend a Fairbanks fall, winter and spring.
Photo notes: There is a window to the right of the fridge in the photoso lots of light. (And a large window upstairs in the loft too.)
In the kitchen photo: There is NOW a hand RV pump for the water, so the jug now goes under the sink and not on the counter.
I added the Raven image as there are lots of Ravens roosting nearby and it's so cool to hear them "talking" everyday.
