The decor is a little outdated, but this place is so charming. The host, Van, was super nice and full of bits and pieces of history! Her breakfast was delicious!! I absolutely loved it. The location is also amazing as it is a 5 minute walk from worthwhile restaurants and most of the attractions in town. We were there on... More

If they have a higher rating then a 5 then the Alaska Heritage House deserves it. If you want a place that not only has the historic beauty but also makes you feel as if you were home. The owners Van and Bill are not only informative, they are friendly and helpful 24/7. They made my stay very comfortable and... More

Traveling to Fairbanks Alaska is an experience that is worth all the energy to get to the interior of Alaska. When in Fairbanks you can stay at cheap motels, or you can experience what it was like to live in a manor house from the 1900's. Alaska Heritage House is a B&B that has all of the charm of living...

My husband and I have stayed at the Alaska Heritage House four times since apx 2008. Each stay we have had the pleasure to stay in a different room. The appointments of a time past are to be appreciated in each room. The dining room for breakfast is a very large boarding house style table which encourages friendly conversation and... More

Beautiful B & B with all of the antiques and the tour was fabulous. I would have loved to stay longer than I did but work called. I will be back on my next trip for sure and I am recommending it to all of my friends and family on the next cruise. Oh, and don't let me forget the... More

I had heard about the Alaska Heritage House but I was most impressed to actually get to stay in this wonderful B & B! I spent 3 nights and loved every minute. Van and Bill are terrific hosts. Their house tour shows their genuine love of this place with a rich history in each and every room. The impressive decor... More

We had a great one night stay! I know when we go back to Fairbanks we will stay here again and definitely for more than one night! The food was excellent and the house was in tip top shape with loads of beautiful antiques all throughout! Definitely a must stay!

Owner showed a great deal of attention to detail and gave us this history of the Inn at breakfast. We stayed in the Bunker Suite in the basement. Had its charms. But very low ceilings! Owner was very flexible when we had to make a change but breakfast is pretty much a fixed menu. Their were no requests on the... More

As our cab was driving us in from the train station, I pointed out the window and said "what a lovely house that is" just as the cab pulled into the driveway. Alaska Heritage House welcomes you from the moment you drive by capturing an entire corner with a long front porch and colorful flower beds. Van and Bill have... More

We had a wonderful time at the Alaska Heritage House. Unfortunately it was only one night. Van is a wonderful host and she really loves what she does. The house is decorated with so much love and history, you could wander through it forever! The breakfast was so delicious and the rooms wonderful and clean. Van provided us also with... More
