The Vista Valley Guest house is a well-built home situated on an elite, wooded 6 acres overlooking a valley. The home is located right up the road from historic Ester, the Malemute Saloon, and the popular Ester Community Park with a summer playground, soccer field, and winter ice skating. It's just 10 minutes from the University of Alaska and 20 minutes to downtown Fairbanks and all the Golden Heart City has to offer.
The kitchen, with cherrywood cabinets, is amply stocked with all the supplies you need to cook for a group. The BBQ on the deck is a great way to enjoy the Alaska summer and the wonderful nature views. Wake up to the aroma of incredible coffee with the Nespresso fully-automatic espresso machine. For coffee purists we also provide whole beans, a burr grinder and a traditional coffee machine.
Catch up on laundry while in Fairbanks. Vista Valley Guest House has a front-loading washer and dryer available for guests and the detergent is provided.
There are four bedrooms, a total of 2 queen beds, 2 full bed, a twin trundle, and an extra rollaway cot, so there will be plenty of room for parents, kids, grandparents, or a group of friends traveling together. We provide luxury linens and towels for each of the beds and the three full bathrooms.
The sitting room with soapstone wood stove invites you to curl up with a good book, and the living room has a flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player and surround sound. Fast wireless internet will keep you connected to family or friends while in Alaska.

Eve grew up right here on the block, and in fact, much of her family still lives in the Vista Way neighborhood, with her mom still located just a few acres away! She loves reading, music, camping, riding snow mobiles and tries to make time for travel, going to live theatre, and Sunday drives.
The Owner purchased this house in 2012
My brother designed and built this house. I feel like we have a dream kitchen, and take a lot of pride in my brother's tile work throughout the house. We hope you can come and enjoy the space, the comfort, and the privacy available at Vista Valley Guest House just a gorgeous 15 minute drive from Fairbanks.
We stayed in the property over Thanksgiving. The house is nested at the top of a valley making it a perfect spot for aurora hunting. The kids had a blast with the toys provided and kitchen/utensils are very nice/complete. It is also spacious. Owner was very responsive to help/answer any questions. Garage is not for renters (there is external plug near the garage door and cable for your car block heater in the property if visiting during winter).
Beautiful northern lights during our stay. Secluded but with neighbors nearby, a delightfully appointed kitchen, and 6 inches of snow, exactly what I wanted.
Vista Valley Guest House was perfect for our family of 8...three generations...ages 9 to 70...to stretch out and enjoy the view. The house was more secluded than expected and a pleasant surprise. I would list it as Ester/Fairbanks, Alaska. It is a quick 20 minute drive to Fairbanks and 2 and 1/2 hours from Denali. We had 2 days of rain while there so also recommend a much larger mat or carpet for "shoes off at the door." The coffee and frother were a big hit and the BBQ as well...we had Alaskan fish to fix. We did have a break in the rain to enjoy a visit to Pioneer Park and get a family portrait taken at the Old Time Studio, a highlight of our Alaskan travels. Eve was most responsive to our needs and questions. We would love to return for the Northern Lights!
From the first email to our stay, we had excellent service from Eve. The house is gorgeous and has an amazing view. Even though we were there in the summer so didn't get to see the northern lights, I can see how it would be an amazing view during the winter. We were close to town, and everything was easy to get to. I would highly recommend this house as a place to stay if you have more than 1 night in Fairbanks. Totally worth it.
My family along with another family stayed for a long weekend and had a great time! The house was well suited for us and our children ranging from 3-6 years old. The house was large enough for the kids to play and sleep comfortably. The kitchen was very nice and had everything we needed to cook for the kids. All of the adults really enjoyed the coffee and espresso! I really enjoyed the location of the property! The house has fantastic views and there were no other houses visible from the property. I don't think that we could have picked a better home or location for our mini vacation. The house was secluded, but was still close to town. The property was clean and well maintained with all of the furnishings necessary to feel like home. Keep in mind that you may have to pay for water at this house. We had to pay an additional water fee per person at the time of booking. There is no well on the property so the water has to be delivered, but do not let this be of any concern. We had a great time, enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to visit again!
10 of us lived in this house for 4 nights in winter. The photos on website reflects well the setting of the house. Actually the house feels better in reality than what the photos can display: cormfortable couch, rugs and beds, big kitchen, full set of cookers, etc. We did not encounter any inconvenience. It is great for family and group of friends.
Eve is very kind and supportive.The first morning we had difficulty in driving our rental car on the pathway piled with snow outside the house , she helped call the service to clean the snow for us.
The house locates in a convenient place, close to town, but distant enough to avoid light pollution. A car is still necessary to go to town. We saw the green aurora in the sky outside of house :)
Take the beautiful drive up the Old Nenana Highway to the private retreat offered at Vista Valley Guest House, located just 5 minutes from historic Ester Gold Mining Camp, 10 minutes from University of Alaska Fairbanks, and 15 minutes from the beautiful Golden Heart city of Fairbanks and all that the interior community has to offer.
