The innkeepers do a great job and have a beautiful, comfortable home! Telsie served us the freshest, most delicious breakfast on Christmas morning- what a treat! Our room (Mary Lee Davis ) was spacious with a very comfortable bed. It has a great kitchen that would easily accommodate an extended visit. I will stay here every time I visit Fairbanks!

I really enjoyed this accommodation in the heart of Fairbanks. Staff bent over backwards to make sure that I had a comfortable stay, from organising a late evening check-in to preparing the most delicious and generous breakfasts around. There was a constant supply of snacks available and staff even baked one morning. The building itself is a museum piece and...

I want to start by saying, my daughter planned our trip. I am not a bed and breakfast guy and wasn't looking forward to staying at one.

We just returned from a week at the Alaska Heritage House and in all areas it far surpassed our expectations. The interior is incredible. It is one of the oldest homes in Fairbanks and every aspect, including all the furnishings makes you feel that you are living in a glorious past. The breakfast is full, delicious and varied every day....

Gorgeous rooms, delicious breakfasts, freshly baked cakes and other goodies for guests throughout the day and night. Melanie was our hostess and she was friendly without being too talkative, knowledgeable about the very interesting history of the house. We loved our stay.

We made hotel reservations at the last minute because were wanted to be flexible with our trip. We had pretty good luck except for Fairbanks, we couldn't find anything on the hotels we were looking at.
