General overview

Due to very high rates of Covid in the community I am not arranging any exchanges until 2022. My home is nestled in a beautiful birch forest. You will really feel like you are in the woods, yet close to town and services. There are trails for walking, running and cross-country skiing from the neighborhood. You'll love the location! 5 minutes to the University, 10 minutes from town and 12 minutes from the airport. A great jumping off point for your Alaskan adventures. Fairbanks is a great location to view the northern lights.

The space

The main house is 2800 square feet. It is a tri-level home and does have stairs to the main living area as well as master bedroom. The main level (middle level) has an open living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom with a tub/shower combination, and 3 bedrooms. One has a king bed, another a queen bed and a futon that makes a single bed (not very comfortable for adults), the 3rd bedroom is set up mostly as a recreational room with a pool table, dart board and TV, this room also has a single pull out bed (not comfortable for adults). In addition we have a queen size inflatable mattress. The top floor is the master bedroom which has a king sized bed and TV. The master bathroom has a shower. The lowest level is a garage, a area set up for an exercise space and the laundry room. We do have a small rental apartment on this level that is rented on a year long lease, the apartment also has access to the laundry room, but there is no access to the main house from the apartment. Our home sits on 3 acres surrounded by birch trees. We have an outside deck with table that can be used in the summer, there is a grassy back yard and vegetable garden in the summer. We have a chicken coop and will leave you some fresh eggs. You will not be responsible for caring for the chickens. We do have dogs that will not be at the home during an exchange. We do have 1 cat.

Guest access

Guests will have access to all 3 floors with the exception of the apartment, as well as the yard and garden.

Notes

While we do have internet, it can be unpredictable at times and may not be adequate for anyone who needs it for video use for work or gaming. We do not have cable or satellite dish (again no options). We do have Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu and Amazon prime . We have DVD players and we have some DVD's available.

Neighbourhood

We live in a quiet rural neighborhood yet are are close to town. We have walking, running and cross-country ski trails accessible from our neighborhood. There is a golf course 1 mile away which also has a restaurant and bar. There are no stores short walking distance from our home. There is a gas station, convenience store, liquor store and some casual dining/coffee shops 2 miles from our house, and there is a large grocery store 4 miles away.

Nearest airport

Fairbanks International Airport 15 minutes away

Getting around

I recommend a car for visiting Fairbanks and the surrounding sites. There is a bus that has a stop a bit more than 1/2 mile away. We also have taxi, Uber and Lyft available. There are many tour companies that operate in the area if you don't want to adventure out on your own.

Feedback

  • Dear Richard, Dear Stephanie. We absolutely loved our stay in your beautiful, cozy, clean home and the wonderful yard. We felt like home from minute 1. Thank you for picking us up from the airport and having the delicious breakfast with us. Perfect communication over all the time. We are so thankful for this exchange and adventure. We saw Grizzlies, Northern Lights, the Denali in all his beauty and we dipped our feet in the arctic sea. Panned for gold and many many more. Your area is truly amazing. Stephanie and Richard left our home in a perfect condition. We hope to meet you soon again.

Stephanie and Richard

We love to travel and experience new places and cultures. Food, cooking, wine, art, museums, theater, historical sites, scenic nature, and wildlife. We love tropical sun and beaches, but we also love big cities, quiet country, out of the way places, and anywhere in between.
