My family and I loved staying at the Yurt! So close to town, but just far enough away to get into the woods and enjoy the peace of the holiday season! Thank you for a wonderful yurt to stay in for our stay-cation! It is roomy, comfortable and nice and toasty on those chilly winter mornings!

Our vacation time just happened to coincide with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The panic buying and hoarding had just begun when we landed in Fairbanks. We spent our first night in a hotel in Fairbanks, got up the next morning, stopped at the Fred Meyer store to pick up provisions for our stay, and headed up to Moose Mountain to this cozy little yurt on the side of the mountain. Upon entering, we immediately felt at home. We unpacked and stored our provisions in the kitchen, then stepped out onto the deck to enjoy the view of the valley below. Being from Dallas, we are not used to seeing the kind of snow coverage we were able to enjoy during our stay on Moose Mountain. In fact, the third day of our stay was one of continous snow fall the entire day. We did venture out a few times during our four days in Fairbanks - dog sledding at nearby Black Spruce Dog Sledding, dinner at Ivory Jack's just a few miles down the road, and the International Ice Sculpture Competition in town. But most of the time we just enjoyed the peaceful solitude of our mountain hideaway sequestered away from the hustle and bustle of Bid D that we are used to. The highlight of our stay was getting to see the Aurora Borealis directly over the yurt one of the nights we were there (it was cloudy and snowing most of the time we were there.) The yurt was very comfortable and roomy. We both commented on how we would like to visit again with the grandkids - they would love staying up in the loft, seeing the snow, and of course the daily visits with Neicha, the owners beautiful Caucasian Shepherd - undoubtedly one of the most mild mannered, laid-back animals I have ever been around. We quickly 'adopted' him (or possibly it was the other way around,) and looked forward to his several visits each day. I can't say enough positive things about this place. It made for a perfect getaway for the two of us. If we ever do venture back to Fairbanks, we will definitely contact Colleen to see if the yurt is available.

This has got to be the most beautiful place... The yurt is so comfortable, immaculately clean. The surroundings are like a bit of heaven. It is quiet and beautiful. A place where your soul can definitely recharge. Will absolutely return to this location.

The yurt was such a unique and amazing getaway up in Fairbanks! Even with only three hours of sunlight it felt like we accomplished quite a lot: dog sledding, aurora hunting, hot springs, and plenty of lounging around! Get a four wheel drive car, take it easy, and getting around was super easy. If I ever head back up to Fairbanks, I'll be checking availability here first!

The location of the yurts was amazing on top of the mountain. The view of the snow capped mountains was breath-taking. It was very quiet and peaceful. Not to far from town with amazing views of the surrounding area. Was able to see wildlife. It is a "must - stay" place to experience some of the Alaskan wilderness with amazing views of the aura lights when available.

We enjoyed our stay at the yurt. It is only 15-20 minutes from the grocery stores and town. Gold Dredge #8 tour was fantastic and only 15 minutes from here. They also have a fantastic gift shop there with unique items from Alaska priced very reasonably. We also enjoyed Pioneer park (15 minutes drive). They have little shops in restored gold mining cabins and the museum there was very interesting. Unfortunately we were not there during the northern lights season but I could see how it would be a perfect location to stay.

I booked this yurt for Dec 2018, and not being familiar with snowy terrain, I asked the owner about anything I should know about before booking. She failed to inform me that during the time I requested a stay, there would only be 4 hours of daylight, and the possibility of a blizzard was incredibly high. Instead she took my money and allowed me to believe I was going to have the opportunity to travel around to sight see and enjoy tourist attractions. This could have been a great review if the owner was honest about the weather conditions during that time of year.
