About Chandalar Ranch

We specialize in “Bush Style” hospitality. We have hostel beds, bunkhouse rooms and a small rental cabin. We also have a remote cabin at the headwaters of the Little Chena River. We can hike there or go by horse in summer or by snow machine and cross-country skis in winter. We also have tent space for those who wish to camp.

We are located approximately 25 miles from Fairbanks at 5804 Chena Hot springs Road. The lodge itself sits on top of a hill, which makes it an excellent place to view the aurora (northern lights) in the winter months. We are located next to the Two Rivers Cross Country Ski Area and the Two Rivers Recreation Area.

We have 3 private rooms that sleep up to 4 people each and 2 hostel bed rooms, one that sleeps 6 people and 1 that sleeps 5 people. We have a large kitchen area for the use of our guests and 2 bathrooms with 2 showers and 2 commodes each and 1 bathroom with 1 shower and 1 commode.

There is an 8% bed tax on all lodging.
