About the property

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.

Fast wireless internet will keep you connected to family or friends while in Alaska. There is also some toys for young children available.

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 Fairbanks

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.

Large home in gorgeous setting

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 9 adults (from 4 different families) had plenty of room in this large home in a gorgeous setting. Having three full bathrooms was especially nice with our varied group. The big and well-equipped kitchen made cooking together fun, although the table and matching chairs only seated 5 people and made dinnertime pretty crowded (hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating). We were grateful for the 4 extra folding chairs provided upon request (but couldn’t use the round folding table because there was not enough room to add it anywhere except in the living room).

The setting is beautiful, and with only a minor glitch with the part suggesting using GPS for the very beginning step, the directions to the location worked well. We were utterly delighted with the “resident” moose, who spent most of the weekend right outside the windows munching on young tree shoots!

Wi-fi worked perfectly. Communication with hosts was fine, and we were very grateful to have our checkout time extended when we asked.

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.
