Welcome to Fabulous Fairbanks. We understand the need to quarantine due to the current covid situation, so we lowered our base rates and are offering discounts to help folks who need it. Our rates include the local 8% tax. Stay safe and health.

Leave pretentiousness behind and spend your nights in a charming house right outside of Fairbanks, where on a clear cold night you can sit out on the deck and watch the aurora blaze across the sky. Come enjoy the Last Frontier with us.

————————————

When all is quiet you can hear the calls of Boreal and Great Horned owls close by. You may run across a snowshoe hare, ruffed grouse, ptarmigan (our state bird) or even a moose. It’s not unusual to see fox or coyote. It you’re lucky you may run across a lynx.

Our house is located in the beautiful Goldstream Valley which is right outside of the city limits, but is only a 20 minute drive from the airport. Its 15 minutes to downtown and its 10 minutes from the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The roads are good and safe. If you want to grab some groceries on the way in, stop by Fred Meyer or Safeway which is on your way after leaving the airport.

In any season this is a photographer’s paradise. The aurora is especially beautiful. Our sunrises seem to set the morning on fire. You’ll see them transform night into morning with colors of coral, pink, orange and gold as you sit and enjoy your morning. As the day goes on, you’ll see the sun travel across the horizon and fade behind the spruce.

Fairbanks is also a winter sport paradise. We Fairbanksans take our winter sports seriously. Enjoy cross country skiing right out the back door and up the power line. In Goldstream you can glide across more Boreal forest trails than you could imagine. Full moons illuminate the trails and make conditions great for a nite ski or walk. These trails are also used for hiking, fat biking (bike rentals available at Goldstream Sports at the end of the road), hiking, winter running and dog mushing. We’ll have trail maps waiting for you in the House Manual. There are lighted ski trails up at UAF. Nearby Birch Hill Recreation Area attracts cross country skiers from around the world who come to Fairbanks to do their Olympic training.

Downhill skiing and snowboarding is 10 minutes away at Moose Mountain, 30 minutes away around the other side of Birch Hill and one hour away at Skiland.

Right around the corner is Running Reindeer Ranch, where you can reserve a guided trail walk with local reindeer. There are also the Peat Ponds, on which you can ski, hike and ice skate.

The people of Fairbanks are as warm as it can get cold. Please don’t forget this is an arctic climate and be prepared for winter temps that can range from 20°F to -50°. Here, we look out for each other and offer a helping hand when needed. People make eye contact, smile and wave as they pass you on the road. This is the sort of place where you can relax put your feet up and read a good book, do a Netflix binge, or ski for hours and then come back and enjoy a warm drink.

If you’re hungry and want to eat out, you could grab some Thai takeout from Sam’s Taste of Thai which is down on the corner, or you could drive a few miles and hit Ivory Jacks for a good meal and a good beer (there’s a general store next door). If you want a fancier meal close by, the Vallata is a few minutes past Ivory Jacks. Or you could drive to town and have a world class meal at Lavelle’s or Bobby’s. Other eateries in the area include Lulu’s Bread and Bagels. They make a proper New York style bagel and serve wonderful breakfast foods. Alaska Coffee Roasters café and coffee shop is also close by. There is the Pump House restaurant that serves a fabulous Sunday brunch as does Pike’s Landing, were you can eat on the deck during the summer and enjoy a warm meal inside during the winter. Fairbanks has good beer. You can try some at Hoodoo Brewery which is in town, or grab some locally brewed award winning spirits from Ursa Major and Hoarfrost distilleries.

The people of Fairbanks refuse to hibernate in the winter. We have the Festival of Native Arts that highlights Alaska’s proud Native cultures. We have the UAF Museum or the North, which is a world class museum that you must visit while you’re here. There’s also the Morris Thompson Cultural Center, which is where you’ll see stunning exhibits that highlight the local Athabaskan people as well as life in the far North. On the first Friday of every month all the local art galleries open an offer free appetizers while local artists show off their works. Fairbanks is also the host of the World Ice Art Championships. Where people from all of the world come to carve the most beautiful temporary sculptures you’ve ever seen. There’s the Fairbanks Concert Association that puts on great shows throughout the season. We have a local symphony, opera company and theater association. Movies can be seen at the Blue Loon or the Regal Goldstream Cinemas. You can catch a University of Alaska Fairbanks hockey game at the Carlson Center or an Ice Dogs game at the Big Dipper Ice Arena. Those who enjoy curling can go on down to the Fairbanks Curling Club and hang out with a very fun group of people. Fans of dog mushing can come visit during the time when the mushers running the Yukon Quest finish their 1000 mile race to the welcoming cheers of our community. There’s also the Open North American dog races that happen right downtown. We’ll have information for you so you can plan once you get here. Explore Fairbanks has a great website that lists all local activities.

Spring and summer in Fairbanks is alight with sun and warmth. Enjoy locally grown produce and handmade wares at our local Tanana Valley Farmer’s market that’s open every Wednesday and Saturday starting in May. The Georgeson Botanical Gardens and the UAF Experimental Farm are located approximately a ten minute drive away. You can walk the gardens and see the vegetables, flowers and trees that we can grow in this area. All are tended to by local master gardeners. Free concerts are offered here on Thursday evenings in the summer. Here you can also view the local experimental reindeer population. If you care to, you can visit the Large Animal Research Station. It’s right down the road and while there you can go on tours to view muskox and caribou up close.

We are known for our midnight sun in the warmer months. Summer Solstice is June 21 and the sun will be up all night. There are activities to celebrate the Solstice all over town. A fun one in particular is the Downtown Midnight Sun Street Fair. Also check out the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival and the Fairbanks Folk Fest.

If you’d rather fish or play outside, enjoy some world-class fishing on our many lakes, rivers and ponds in the area. Tanana Lakes State Recreation area is approximately 25 minutes away and there you can swim in one area and fish for pike in the other. Please make sure you have the correct information that allows you fish legally.

The birdwatching in Fairbanks is fabulous. We are fortunate enough to be on the migratory route of many birds that are traveling up to the North Slope in the spring time. In the summer we have the Sandhill crane festival. You’ll see them down at the UAF Experimental Farm and hear them overhead. When they’re flying they look like pterodactyls. You’ll notice many different bird species throughout our area. If you’ve got the chance, drive over to Creamer’s Field Refuge. The hiking is good and the area is a stopping point for many birds. Make sure to spend some time at the Peat Ponds nearby. They’ve also become a place for birds that are on their way to their breeding grounds. Additionally, keep your eyes open while you hike on top of Ester Dome, or you could drive over to Murphy Dome where you can hike all the way out to rock formations that were left over from glaciers. You’ll be able to look over an area in which you don’t see any signs of human development whatsoever. It is truly majestic.

Our place is clean, comfortable and cozy. We’d love to have you visit us and stay at our house. The neighborhood is safe and clean the neighbors are awesome. Let us know when you’ll be arriving and will have everything set up for you.

Hi. Nice to meet you. I've lived in Fairbanks for over 25 years. I love this community and I seem to fall in love with the area over and over again. Along with a regular job, I am a beekeeper and our family runs a small hobby farm called Happy Creek Farm. We produce honey, eggs, birch syrup, haskap berries and vegetables and sell them locally. Our family keeps active all year around. We enjoy cross country skiing, hiking, biking, hiking, canoeing, fishing and camping. We hope that you enjoy Fairbanks as much as we do. We live close by so if there is something we can help with, please let us know. Thanks.
