Have a true Alaskan experience as you cozy up in this tiny cabin with a view of "The Big One." You'll be a stone's throw from the iconic Nenana river and famous Alaska Railroad, with plenty of opportunity for moose sighting. Located an hour (55mi) south of Fairbanks and an hour (60mi) north of Denali National Park and Preserve.There is a full kitchen; refrigerator, gas range, microwave oven, coffee pot, and a water kettle. This cabin is in a very quiet location with views of Denali.

This cabin has been recently renovated as our cozy guest house with 325 ft² of living space, as we have just finished working to complete construction of a separate family home. Our cabin space is a perfect blend of modern design and amenities, and Alaskan rustic elegance. It is conveniently located in Nenana, directly between Fairbanks and Denali National Park and Preserve. 

For those hoping to get the quintessential Alaska experience, our cabin is perfectly situated on 5 acres of privately owned land surrounded by Alaska State Land. From the deck, you will be able to watch the famous Alaska Railroad pass by on the horizon. On quiet evenings, you can hear the wood frogs in the tundra and watch birds from the cabin deck, often seeing and hearing sand hill cranes, trumpeter swans, ptarmigan, loons, eagles, owls and robins, surrounded by miles of wilderness and nature. Our cabin is at the end of the road, away from chaos, providing excellent privacy.

As guests, you'll have private access to the entire cabin for the duration of your stay. You will have your own slice of heaven with beautiful Alaskan views and a comfortable patio to enjoy.

Many residents of Alaska choose to live full time in a dry cabin, a cabin without running water. Our outhouse is comfortable, heated, and clean. Purified water is provided for hand washing and cooking. Gray water is collected under the sink and must be emptied by guests.

Eric was very helpful in accommodating us late night, last minute after our plans changed. The cabin was so cute and even better than described. Everything was clean, comfortable and well stocked. We slept downstairs on the trundle bed and it worked well for us. My husband had never used an outhouse before and was skeptical, but ended up laughing about it. Very quiet location but easy to find and access from the highway. The view was amazing and we wish we could have stayed longer to try the fire pit and outdoor shower.

It is so very hard to put into words, my experience here at the Coop Cabin. I was looking for a place that was conveniently located outside of Fairbanks, solitude and just a place to relax and enjoy the nature of Alaska. This was everything I was looking for.
The cabin is well maintained. The scenery was breathtaking. It is conveniently located near Denali also. If you are thinking about a trip to Alaska, JUST DO IT... This cabin and its location will NOT disappoint. Eric was very responsive to any questions that I had.

This is one place I will always remember. Thank you, Eric!

We had an amazing experience staying at the Coop Cabin! Everything was clean and comfortable. The outhouse was well-heated and clean. The cabin is located with great access to Denali, and the scenery is beautiful! Eric was a great host and was very responsive and ready to answer questions and provide suggestions. This was a perfect spot to spend our first trip to Alaska—we are already planning our trip back!

The Coop Cabin was an incredible find. It was cozy, very clean, and surround by beautiful and peaceful natural scenery. Eric and Hannah were awesome hosts, very attentive, and offered many suggestions, tips, and info regarding Denali, the northern lights, and animals in the area. While at the cabin we were visited by a huge great horned owl, very cool to see. On nights with clear skies and aurora activity the northern lights hovered right over the cabin, very vibrant and intense, nothing short of magical. Clear mornings you can see Denali from the cabin porch. Best cabin ever, I highly recommend a stay here.

Had a wonderful time and the hosts were so kind and remembered me from a previous visit 5+ months ago. They also offered a wakeup call in case they saw northern lights got more active.

Very nice quiet place. Amazing views. Property is well-maintained and the host, Eric, is very helpful. He even advised us on some of the must see and try places in town. We really had a good experience.

Eric and his family were such lovely hosts! We loved our stay at the cabin and hope to come back next year. The cabin was on the perfect location for day trips to Denali and Fairbanks and the land itself was gorgeous. Already recommending to friends!

Loved the porch view and fire pit!
