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.... More

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.

I really loved that breakfast was served at one, large dining table. We had so much fun meeting other people staying at the B & B and had a lively conversation at... More
