Posted Feb 18, 2017

Spend a night under the stunning expanse of Alaska’s stratosphere, where the starry night skies are occasionally covered with wispy trails of colour left behind by the fleeting northern lights. Known for stretching fields of natural landscapes populated by curious bears and the majestic silhouettes of grazing moose, spend the crisp winter afternoons animal watching from the comforts of your home with 10 of these cosy vacation rentals!

1. The fisherman's cabin near Montana Creek (99 USD)

Tucked half a mile away from the Yoder Mountain Trail, escape from the bustling city life here in Peter’s cabin, where Mother Nature’s greatest creations are right outside your doorstep! Built from scratch, this cabin is equipped with just the basic facilities as the hosts want you to explore the grandeur of Alaska - there’s a boiler in the kitchen for your morning fix of coffee or tea, and clean water supplies are found in the pantry. The double sleeper is cosy and warm enough for you to snuggle in even on cold winter nights.

2. Quiet wooden cabin near Carrie Lynn Drive (189 USD)

If your trip up north is to see the elusive aurora sightings, then you may be in luck at Terri’s wooden cabin! Accommodating a group of 6, the cabin is best visited during the peak of winter, when the stream behind this cabin transforms into a frozen ice rink during the colder months - perfect for skating enthusiasts. The kitchen is fully functional; you can even add a touch of wilderness to your meals by grilling up a meal at the outdoor fire pit and telling of campfire stories! The soft queen-sized sleepers will ensure that you fall asleep the moment your head touches the pillow, and you can use the long couch as a makeshift sleeper for an extra 2 guests.
