Chena Hot Springs
One of Fairbanks Best Kept Secrets
Right next to the Hot Springs this stream never freezes. Even when the temperture hits 60 below zero this stream flows like its springtime.
After a long soak you may feel like getting a rub down. Well down at cabin number 3 the one with the moose's rack on it a professional masseuse is availible to work out whatever remaining kinks and tensions you may have left they offer thirty minute and hourly rates.
Chena Hot Springs Resort also has a Bar and a Resturant. Much to my surprise the food was made from scratch, moderately priced and excellent. They offer the full gamut from light meals of soup salad and sandwiches to wonderful salmon and trout, steaks, chicken, and local specialties.
Chena Hot Springs Resturant has several rooms. I was told that Chena Hot Springs does conventions for party's of 20 -50 people. For these groups a private dining room is availible where business could be discussed in a private atmosphere.
With all that said I'm now going to try to show you what I personally like the best about Alaska and Fairbanks the unbridled beauty of the countryside. To me one of the nicest things about Chena Hot Springs is the ability to be able to get away from it all and to take quiet walks in nature. Just about in every direction you go there are quiet trails with extrodinary views rather then give you a lot of works I'll just present you with some more photos and let you decide for yourself.
And then when the sun sets, a new kind of magic begins.
In case you may not have guessed Chena Hot Springs is one of the best sites to view the Aurora. They offer aurora tours and have Yurts and other heated structures set up on the the side of the mountain so you can sit back in comfort and watch the aurora go through it's paces.
Chena Hot Springs Resort is definitely an Alaskan Dreams Kind of Place.
