Delightful place with a very rich history. Breakfast is the best you will find anywhere. Van, the owner, provides more history on Fairbanks than Google. I stayed in the Williams room, but there is no bad one in the place. I hope to visit again in the future and I will book here when I stay.

We stayed at this B&B for three days before starting our Holland America Land/Sea Adventure. This beautiful restored historical home is so incredibly charming and full of authentic period home furnishings. The staff are so kind and accommodating. The morning breakfast is truly a feast of delicious food, the rooms are all unique and the linens are crisp and clean.... More

Alaska Heritage house is exquisitely renovated and decorated and the owner Van is generous with gourmet breakfasts and local information, especially regarding the history of this house, one of the early mansions of Fairbanks. Highly recommended.

We stayed here at the end of March 2015 and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Bill and Van are wonderful hosts and the house is beautiful. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was always delicious. I commented I wanted to find somewhere to have a nice salmon dinner and Van told me not to waste... More

I was in Fairbanks two weeks to photograph the Northern Lights. Two things made this travel memorable--first, the lights were dancing, and second, the stay at the Alaska Heritage House was wonderful. A bed and breakfast with a wonderful history shared by owners Van and Bill. I stayed in the Mary Lee Davis room which was quiet, comfortable and decorated... More

I needed a room for only one night and the best deal in town was the Heritage House. Van greeted me, showed me the ropes with a knowledgeable tour. The history in this house is incredible. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and organized. Breakfast was a delight visiting with folks from around the globe. Bill and Van... More

We stayed with Alaska Heritage House in March of 2015 for 3 nights. Our experience was incredible. The house itself is a museum. It is carefully restored, and exquisitely decorated, with a lot of items being original to the house dating back to early 1900s. It is extremely clean. When we checked in, our room was spotless, bedding had very... More

I'm actually writing this review on behalf of my parents (who aren't the most tech-savvy), who had the opportunity to stay at the Alaska Heritage House in the summer of 2014 when visiting me here in Fairbanks for a week. This was their first experience at a B+B and they couldn't have been happier. They raved about the cleanliness (and... More

Virginia N, Owner at Alaska Heritage House, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your gracious review. You stressed cleanliness, and we work very hard at it. We steam the floors, bath fixtures and mattresses. We iron the sheets, pillow cases and cloth table napkins for our formal breakfast at our 150 year old dinning room table. It is gratifying to receive feedback that recognizes the effort we put...

If you are looking for a place that offers delicious and hearty Alaskan-style breakfast, brings you the feel of the early 20th century local history in every corner of house, and is located within a walking distance from the heart of Fairbanks, Alaska Heritage House is a perfect choice! The hosts and owners are delighted to share stories of the... More

The beauty of the accommodations was matched by the warm hospitality of the owners. Very knowledgeable, interesting couple with wonderful culinary skills! To stay in a place that oozes history was a real treat! As were the delicious breakfasts made by Van and Bill! Came for one night and stayed for 4, and I am hoping to return in March... More
