My boyfriend and I visited Kyia's B&B for our anniversary and I can't imagine a more perfect experience than our visit at the Slow Rush Kennels! We went to the B&B in one of the coldest times of the winter and all we felt was warmth and welcome upon our arrival. Kyia was cordial and informative; her depth of knowledge regarding the history of dog mushing and the community in general created a beautiful lens through which to view our time in Fairbanks. We were able to take a kennel tour and meet all of her beautiful sled dogs who were lively and loving. It was an amazingly in depth experience that I don't believe we could have had anywhere else. The pioneer tent that we stayed in had the authenticity of the genuine pioneer tents that people settled in years ago; it was a beautiful setting that was totally unique. The one of a kind antiques that filled the main building and our pioneer tent were absolutely gorgeous, falling asleep next to a wood fire surrounded by authentic pieces of Alaskan history made our anniversary a one of a kind experience. The B&B is located far enough away from town that in the winter the view of the stars and the northern lights are perfect when weather conditions permit. Anyone who is thinking about staying at The Slow Rush Kennels should take this as a sign that this is absolutely the place they should stay.
A very nice stay in the middle of the nature with a wonderful host Kyia. So many things to share with her about her passion and the Alaskan way of life. A must to do !
Take care Kyia

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel at home with kyia. Her passion for her lifestyle and knowledge that she has accumulated over the years is amazing and she wants to share it all with you. Make sure you stay for more then 1 night as there is so much to see and learn. Lots of dogs to cuddle and beautiful tent cabins to stay in for luxury camping.
