About the property

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.

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.

Very comfortable for a family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Had a great Alaska cruisetour planned and we started our trip here. Coming from Florida I knew we would need some time to adjust before we set out to explore. This house had all the convenience of home. Beds were comfortable, would've like more pillows, the kitchen was stocked, and the location was great. Far enough outside the city to enjoy the scenery and close enough to explore Fairbanks.

We were here in July, so the continuous light was an adjustment, it was much warmer than we expected. With that being said, room fans and curtains in the living room would make a big difference. We loved our time here and would love to come back.

Rural bliss

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It is remote enough to be perfectly quiet and close enough to Fairbanks to be in the city in minutes. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and baths. Beautiful view from the big front porch. We would definitely stay here again.

Great views! Charming house!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet and comfortable home surrounded by natural beauty. Within an hour of our arrival, we were treated to a visit by a mother moose and two calves grazing next to the back deck. Sunsets were spectacular. Well stocked kitchen was much appreciated.

Perfect for a small family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice & quiet - not in town, because we did not want to be in town, but close enough so that it was not an inconvenience to go in and enjoy Fairbanks.

Great view

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay. We loved the view and the location was just far enough out for a quite night but close enough to drive in for dinner. Would highly recommend

Great sunny deck and view!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for my daughter's college graduation from UAF. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and we had plenty of room for 8 guests. Our host Erin was extremely helpful, friendly and responsive to our needs.
