This is a very old historical house that is furnished appropriately for its age with mostly original furniture. You feel like in a movie. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They will tell you the story of the house while you are served a home made breakfast. It's a real gem!

I love this place. It's just an amazing, cozy & vibrant place to stay in. Our host, was so gracious. I think her name is Melanie, but I didn't write this review til a week later & im super bad with names. She cooked us an amazing breakfast & was super helpful answering emails and any questions I had. I'll...

The hotel definitely lives up to its name, and offered a glimpse into what Fairbanks was like in earlier times. The Garden Room was very comfortable & full of character. The breakfast was simple but perfect, and the service was attentive and warm. We had to take an early flight out, leaving well before breakfast hours. When Melanie heard that,...

The room was fine and the breakfast tasty. I would recommend if you don't mind staying in an old house where each room is not sonically insulated. The linens were plush and the water hot. My chief complaint is that I knew that there was no 24-hour desk and I was arriving late. I emailed (using the tripadvisor email and...

I was in town for a trade show with a friend and absolutely loved this fab space! The house has such great character and each room is unique. Breakfast was top notch and you certainly feel welcome. I loved it so much, I booked the b&b for another trip, just a day after returning from the first! This time I...

We stayed two nights in the Blanche Cascaden room, a lovely room with a sitting area and a bathroom. The double bed was very comfortable (welcome after three nights in a tent in Denali). The breakfast were served in the beautiful dining room and the meals were delicious. This place is a great value and in a quiet neighborhood within...

We spent the night in the Chena River Suite downstairs and had a lovely stay as expected. Charming, warm and very, very clean.Surprisingly, it had a full kitchen which would be a great plus for a longer stay and our bed was dreamily comfortable. The dainty chintz and lace decor rang back to long ago and it was easy to...

My wife and I stayed there 4 days in March. The location was great as it is close to downtown which allowed walking to restaurants. The breakfasts are good and served when you sit down (last call was 9:30 AM for us). The only downside was our room, the Chena River Suite, the description sounded good enough, but the room...

I can hardly add to the praise others have heaped upon this place. Comfortable, charming, close to downtown, and very good breakfasts. Free parking for the first three vehicles. If we ever go back to Fairbanks, we'll certainly try to reserve at the Alaska Heritage House again.

We were a group of four couples staying at the B&B. We arrived later in the evening, and Melanie was there to welcome us and get us checked in. The rooms were very comfortable and we used the common area a lot. Breakfasts were wonderful and on our last day, we had to leave for the airport by 4:30am. Melanie...
