Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Fairbanks - Vista Valley Guest House

4BR/3BA - Sleeps 4-10

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 equipped with all the tools 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 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, with a small selection of DVD's provided. Fast wireless internet will keep you connected to family or friends while in Alaska. There is also some toys for young children available.

Relax and come enjoy the private elite getaway and beautiful view available at Vista Valley View Guest House!

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Alaska

My brother designed and built this house. I feel like I 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.

Wonderful winter stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home in Fairbanks. We intentionally came up at the end of October to try and see the Northern Lights and weren't disappointed with the house or the Northern Lights. The location of the house was great. It was just a few minutes outside of the city and we saw the Northern Lights from outside the house. The house was plenty big for our group of 7 and was a really good value for the price. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were in the house, which allowed us to get good sleep when we weren't outside all night. The kitchen was a large size and functioned well for our group. We also enjoyed the heated floors throughout the house. We would definitely rent this house again should we ever find ourselves back in Fairbanks.

The house is really good.

  • 5 of 5

The Vista house is really good. We saw the Northern light when the day we arrived and the next day. The view was great. The house was comfortable and big enough for us to stay. I would recommend my friends to stay in this house.

Great, comfortable location

  • 5 of 5

Vista Valley Guest house has everything you need for a comfortable stay in one of the most beautiful areas of Alaska. Our family of 5 fit well into the house. Stores with items you need for the stay are only 15 minutes away. Denali is about 2 hours away, dog sledding locations are 20 minutes away.

We saw grizzly, moose, caribou and more in Denali. Check out their 3 for the price of 2 shuttle (not bus) tours into the park. You have to call for that special and we used it as a hedge against bad weather and it was a good decision. We purchased Monday, Tuesday and Thursday trips. Drizzled all day Monday, poured on Tuesday (we didn't even go) and it was a perfect day on Thursday.

We were really hoping to see the Aurora and over several nights were able to view them well from the front deck and also the driveway. The hardest part of the trip was trying to decide when to sleep. Up all night watching the Northern Lights; up all day going to Denali. When we did decide to sleep, the house was very comfortable.

If you are looking for a great place to eat in Fairbanks, we recommend The Cookie Jar Cafe. For a great place to stay, pick Vista Valley Guest house and get on with planning your trip in Alaska. Thanks to Eve and Erin for sharing their nice home with us.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean, well equipped, and comfortable. I've rented quite a few of these rentals in different parts of the U.S., and this one is in my top few. Everything is exactly as presented in the description and the pictures. Our group consisted of myself, my sister, and two nieces, but the house could have comfortably accommodated more than twice our group. It is secluded with a gorgeous view, but not isolated, there are other homes in the area, and it is only a short 10 minutes to town. Myself and my entire group highly recommend this rental.

Nice place with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately the TV did not work and with the rain occurring every day except one we missed having a TV. It is a very nice place and comfortable. I would stay there again.
