Aurora Above, Wilderness in Reach
Remote, but accessible, the Meadow Cabin offers a truly Alaskan experience - deep quiet, star filled nights, and, course, shimmering Auroras. Located east of Fairbanks and in route to Chena Hotsprings, the Meadow Cabin is surrounded by spruce Forrest, private and secure.
Spend day 1 settling in, maybe enjoy a dinner at the Two Rivers Lodge, later that even enjoy your Aurora adventure with the Mushing Co-op. Day 2 eat breakfast at 24-mile Java, then keep heading down Chena Hotsprings road to Chena Hotsprings Resort for a soak and stay for dinner. Spend Night 2 pursuing the Aurora from your cabin or by snowshoes.
The Meadow Cabin is located on a small meadow amid a spruce forest. Very private. Log construction, we built it to provide private housing for our dog handlers (handlers help us train and care for our Sleddog teams). It has a small but functional kitchen, living room and queen size bed downstairs, a full size bed in the loft. A classic Alaskan outhouse is your "bathroom" nestled among the trees.
Guests have full and exclusive access to the cabin. Check in is very casual and late arrivals are acceptable.

Interaction with guests
The Currier’s 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 them can likely provide it.
Judy & Devon are always working on some project around the house, barn, dog yard, or garden so welcome a break to share information with guests. If they are not home, they are available by phone or text.
One queen bed located above in the loft, one double bed below.
Other things to note
The cabin does not have running water; however, there is access to a shower in the main house between 8am & 9pm. Potable water is provided for cooking and cleaning.
WiFi is available at the Maine house. It is not very fast but should meet basic needs. It is suggested to download any movies or pod casts before you leave home if you wish to have entertainment.
A small group of Sled dogs are on the property, welcoming and friendly but securely tethered. Introductions by appointment only.
There is an 8% room tax which the Currier’s pay for you.
We highly recommend you shop for food and drink in Fairbanks (Safeway or Fred Meyer) before coming out to the Cabin. There is a General store nearby but it has a limited selection.
It gets cold in Alaska November to end of March —although not as cold as the past. Be prepared, bring cold weather clothes, wool socks, and boots. They do provide Parkas for your use.
The Cabin is 35 minutes from Fairbanks, 45 from the Airport, 40 minutes from Eielson, and 45 minutes from Chena Hotsprings.
