The SpaceIn winter Paw Print Bed n Sled is home to 20 or so Alaskan huskies. These are authentic racing huskies who have traveled many miles over Alaska's great trails. Some have finished the Iditarod, some are preparing to run it.
After their evening meal you will hear the howl of the huskies, celebrating the end of another great Alaskan day.
The Kevin's Cabin Kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, pots, pans and utensils, small fridge, propane cook stove, coffee maker, and toaster. Also set up with spices, cooking oil, coffee and tea.
The cabin is located 1 mile from the main road and on the edge of a vast wilderness thus very quiet and perfect for viewing the northern lights.
If you plan your visit between October and March, bring a parka and winter boots; it can get cold here - still:) Guest AccessShower and bathroom in main house are available for your use from 8am to 9pm. A classic Alaskan Outhouse is available for your use at the cabin. Share a few quiet moments with the squirrels every day!
Potable water is available in the cabin for drinking, cooking and cleaning.
Breakfast options provided include bagels, farm fresh eggs, and pancakes. Interaction with GuestsWe have lived in Alaska since 1995 and have traveled around the state extensively by bicycle, dog team, boat, and airplane. If you need information one of us can likely provide it.
We are always working on some project around the house, barn, dog yard, or garden so welcome a break to share information with guests.
We offer Sleddog rides. If you wish to go for a ride, please let us know in advance what day and how many will go. The NeighborhoodLocated in Pleasant Valley (aka Two Rivers) we are just 3 miles from Chena River Recreational Area where you can fish, canoe, or hike in summer and ski or snowshoe in winter.
Another 26 miles down the road is Chena Hotsprings, a unique Alaskan institution! Do not be confused by hotels listed on Expedia, trivago, or other online sites - they are NOT a few miles from Chena Hotsprings - more like 60 miles.
In fact, Kevin's Cabin is probably the closest place to the Hotsprings, much more affordable, and with no city lights to compete with the Aurora.
November to April, we work with Paws for Adventure to offer one, two or more day Sleddog adventures. Visit their site for more information. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation nearby. You will need to drive, walk, or bike to get here. We recommend renting All or four wheel drive for safest drive.
We have a well stocked but small general store, post office, and laundromat within a mile. There is a lodge for fine dining or bar fare nearby. And that's it! Other Things to NoteThere is an 8% room tax.
One queen bed upstairs, full size futon downstairs ( let us know in advance if you need both)
We highly recommend you shop for food and drink in Fairbanks (Safeway or Fred Meyer) before coming out to Kevin's Cabin. There is a General store nearby but it has a limited selection.
From September to April, We have an outside jacuzzi which you may use for $10/pp/day. This fee just covers the cost of power - very high in Alaska. It is available until 9pm. It's an awesome experience to soak and view the lights at -10!
It gets cold in Alaska November to end of March - although not as cold as in the past. Be prepared and bring cold weather clothes and boots.
