Chena Hotsprings Road

We're located 150 miles South of the Arctic Circle outside of the city of Fairbanks.  Fly into Fairbanks International Airport and stay in one of Alaska's many lodges in the area (see our list below for local favorites).  You'll find it very beneficial to rent a vehicle for your stay in Fairbanks. 

It takes roughly 1 - 1.5 hours to reach our kennel from Fairbanks along the scenic Chena Hotsprings Road, depending on the road conditions.  We're the half-way point between Fairbanks and Chena Hotsprings Resort, 1/2 mile past mile post 25. Google Maps is NOT A RELIABLE resource to find our kennel.  Please look for these small green mile markers as you make your way towards The Co-op and follow to maps below.

Suggested Lodging:

 
 

Kevin's Cabin

Built by the Currier's nephew, Kevin's Cabin is rustic Alaska on the inside and practical steel on the outside. Situated 30-miles east of Fairbanks in a quiet neighborhood where the sled dogs out number the human population! You will not see any city lights here so the Aurora shimmers bright.

Ask us about our unique package including an over-night Aurora Tour in our Mongolian Yurt and a cabin stay @Kevin's Cabin.

A Taste of Alaska

A Taste of Alaska Lodge sits on 280 acres of land that is drenched in natural beauty and family history, which spans three generations. It is a place unique to any other lodging in Fairbanks Alaska, and is a treat for anyone looking for a true Alaskan experience.

Arctic Lights B&B

Your hosts Anke and Dave Peterson and their Golden Retrievers Aila and Ari hope you'll enjoy your stay in Pleasant Valley. Their home is only a short 30-minute drive from downtown Fairbanks, half way to the Chena Hot Springs. They are far enough away from the city to enjoy Northern Lights directly from our backyard, yet still close enough to all tourist attractions. Since the guestroom windows are facing north you can even watch the Northern Lights directly from your room. In addition enjoy the endless trails for hiking, snowshoeing or skiing they are also neighbors to the Co-op!
