“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

A lovely place to stay. The views are nice, quiet and homey. The kitchen is the focal point of this place. The bedrooms are average. You might feel tight if you need a bigger bed. They have one bathroom with sliding doors and the only mirror in the house, which does somewhat limit privacy and usage time.

This home is connected to a water tank which means you need to conserve water or run the risk of running out.

If you need housekeeping service everyday, this place might not be the place for you. If you want a homey place to stay, cook and relax then the Red House is for you.

There is another rental house next door but it wasn't a problem for us. We never saw him but if you don't like close neighbors.....

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the red house. (Note that the description above is for this house, but the pic provided is not for this location.) The house was clean and well stocked. It is well sound proofed. Even with new house construction going on beside and across the street, it was very quiet. The house does have a full time rental steps from the back porch that shares the driveway, but we never saw or heard the renter. You enter the front door and go up 4 steps to the kitchen and living area or down 7 steps to the basement bathroom or bedrooms, so anyone with limited mobility should be aware that you end up climbing stairs a lot. They have water delivered at 10 cents per gallon, so they ask you to conserve water while there. These are things someone considering this location should be aware off but they in no way detracted from our pleasant stay.

We had such a great time in Fairbanks and the Red House made our stay easy, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. It's in a fabulous location - up in the hills just outside of the Fairbanks main city area, and gave a great view of the city lights at night, great privacy and a lovely serene setting. The house is small, neat and tidy, with a great upstairs living and kitchen area. The kids had a ball playing in the snow around the house, making bobsled tracks and sledding down the driveway, and the window seat in the lounge was a great spot to watch them play. Thankyou to John for lending us an extra sled! Our 5 nights here were wonderful - we slept well (apart from getting up to watch the Northern Lights!!), and were cosy and warm in the freezing winter weather. An experience we'll never forget. Thankyou!
