To access it, Click thru the pictures on this photo album using the arrows on the screen to the right. It is the 3rd one in. Then click on the arrow in the middle of the screen to play it. It shows the auroras Raging over our house! This is a common occurrence when the aurora activity is high. Our place is more than just the apartment, it is the location, and the beautiful surroundings in the grounds around it. Flower gardens, a lawn with ornamental shrubs and trees, a small deck and grill, woods all around the perimeter for privacy, a walking or running trail right from the back of the property, a small greenhouse to sit in for a peaceful cup of tea. This beautiful 800 sq.ft. one bedroom apartment has all new furnishings and is comparable to a private hotel suite, but better. There are many EXTRAS that are included such as FREE wi-fi and cable TV, laundry, fully equipped kitchen, extra Winter gear- parkas, boots & gloves for guests' use, fresh garden herbs for your use, an outside grill, that if you figure that into your cost elsewhere, it is actually less expensive to stay here.

Also another smaller room with a twin sized bed, in addition two very comfortable airbeds if needed. Apartment can accomodate up to 4 people,.

The rental is the entire ground floor, of almost 800 sq ft, we live up above in the upper two floors so that we are available to make sure all your needs are met.
The view from the window is a mix of spruce, birch and aspen trees. Flower gardens, including iris and lilacs, and an herb garden and greenhouse are on the property. In the Summer, we are close to the botanical garden at UAF, and in the Winter, if the auroras are out, they are very likely to be seen right over our house, with no city light pollution to dilute them. For extended stay, we can talk about a Monthly rate. Generally for anything over a month, we need to get references from your current landlord or other references. Have a great journey!
