Arctic Circle Hot Springs is located in the heart of some of Alaska's best gold county, access is by the Steese Hwy. 134 mile N. from Fairbanks, or from 4,400ft airfield (next to the property) $1,500,000. (Reduced 2 weeks ago) This property is in need of much TLC however it is definitely one of a kind, and the potential to the right owner is virtually unlimited. Yes, there are other hot springs in Alaska, but this hot spring is a standout, with its gin clear water hot springs, airfield access, and tremendous location, making it one of a kind. The potential of this property is hard to over state, as a recently operated lodge, and or combination extremely private corporate/personal retreat, with modification this property could have it all. Especially considering the potential of a new pipeline, high gold prices, and the resulting increased business activity.

considered as well as rebuilding
the pool area.

over 100+ years because of its

This water also has a special
