We stayed with Ted and Elizabeth in the "inverted penthouse" from Sept 3-7, 2015. I'm sad to announce that they are retiring as of Sept. 15...so if you want to visit, do so quickly. We had driven the Alaska Hwy and this was a perfect place for a few days of rest...seeing the sights of Fairbanks and the aurora. They... More

My husband took me to Fairbanks, Alaska for my birthday to see the northern lights! We stayed at Lizzie's Nest and it was very cozy and had a homey feel. The room has a nice big window so you can enjoy nature even when inside. The working wood fireplace was awesome (even though we spent most of the time exploring... More

My family of 5 (kids 5,7,10) stayed in the suite at Lizzie's Next for 3 nights this February just after Valentines day. Snow all around, but sunny beautiful days. A basement suite with mini kitchen, nice walk-in bathroom, two beds and a roll away for the 5th. My kids were comfortable and said it was like visiting grandma and grandpa.... More

Liz and Ted are lovely hosts and did their best to make our stay comfortable. The facility is unique in that there is only one downstairs apartment available for lodging- Liz'a parents had lived in the apartment. it is really entering a furnished apartment from an era gone by. The furniture is dated and there are a lot of things... More

Lizzie's Nest is a very relaxing,cozy and homey place. It locates on a hill but actually is very close to downtown. The house owners, Elizabeth and Ted, are very friendly. Their breakfasts are delicious. We'll definitely stay here next time when we visit Fairbanks.

Lizzie's Nest is a very comfortable place to stay high on a hill with a good view of Fairbanks right out the large front windows. We liked the private entrance and roomy accommodations. We found the beds to very comfortable and our entire apartment sparklingly clean. We liked going upstairs in the morning and enjoying a delicious breakfast with our... More

I recently spent 4 nights here. Only 10 minutes north of town, the location is quiet, easy to find and very scenic. I had to depart early one morning and they prepared a breakfast to go so I wouldn't miss breakfast. Would stay here again anytime.

This place is owned and run by retired teachers. Our room was on the bottom floor and was more like a suite. It not only contained a bed and bathroom but had a sofa and 2 easy chairs and a kitchen with refrigerator, sink, microwave, and coffee maker.. We had WIFI and use of the phone to make local calls....

We had a nice stay at Lizzie's Nest. Liz and Ted are gracious and accommodating hosts, very helpful with information about Fairbanks. It is not right in town, but just a 10 minute or so drive to anything you would need. On a clear day, you can even see Denali from 100 miles away. We stayed in the Forget-Me-Not apartment... More
