This is a unique Alaskan opportunity—your own 3-bedroom apartment in the upstairs of an airplane hangar! The hangar/apartment is located right in the middle of a bush plane landing strip/“float pond” community. Watch airplanes take off and land right from the bedroom window! You’ll get the full Alaskan experience, yet only minutes from town and all the local attractions.

The space
New construction, industrial chic decor loaded with amenities: Wi-Fi, 55” HDTV, luxurious bamboo sheets, high-end memory foam beds, towels & bath products. A nice deck facing the woods, propane barbecue & 2 sets of snowshoes are available for your use. A Keurig with a selection of coffee, tea & hot chocolate are complimentary. All basic utensils & cookware needed to prepare a home-cooked meal are included. The entire space is bright, open and airy, with views of Alaskan planes and the Chena Hills beckoning you outside. Airplane parking available for a fly-in guests, tie downs available on site.

Where you’ll be

Fairbanks, Alaska, United States

The hangar apartment is located on the west side of Fairbanks in the Chena Marina subdivision. It is 5 min from grocery stores, the University of Alaska Museum and other local attractions like the Riverboat Discovery and the Georgeson Botanical Gardens. 10 min from the airport, downtown and the World Ice Art Championships, and walking distance from the Chena River. UAF (5 mins drive) boasts a sledding hill popular with the locals, an indoor public pool and indoor ice/hockey arena. It also has a x-country ski trail system, which makes for very nice hiking/walking in the summer (our favorites are the ones to/from Smith Lake).

Chena Hot Springs is 1.5 hours away and Denali National Park is about 2 hours away.

There is a paved bike path 1/2 mile from the hangar that goes into town— viewpoints of the Chena and Tanana Rivers, and right past the Pumphouse Restaurant (a national historic site). It is also an interesting walk or bike ride on the gravel roads around the neighborhood. With the many aircraft, a dog musher, and of course the occasional moose, you’re bound to have a memorable experience.

Take a short 2 minute walk over to the small lake of Chena Marina—maybe you’ll get lucky and see a floatplane taking off! In summer, you can even fish for northern pike in the lake (don’t forget to buy a fishing license first). The area is a rustic, eclectic mix of industrial and residential—gold miners, pilots, hunting outfitters, helicopter charters and adventurers, you are surrounded by the “real” Alaska.

In winter there are views of the northern lights right from your deck or bedroom window, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to see a nearby dog musher exercise his dogteam across the frozen lake or through the neighborhood.

During your stay

I am in town, and available for questions or concerns by Airbnb messaging, phone or text. I live at a different property so unless you indicate you would like to meet in person or need something, we will probably not meet.
