“FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

John and I so enjoyed our stay at the Golden Umbrella, we consider June and Ping not as our hosts but as our friends. We checked in August 23rd, checked out September 1st. During our stay we enjoyed great conversation and loads of laughter. When they found out it was our 25th anniversary, June put out flowers and balloons. We stayed in the Aurora Room which was roomy, clean and had its own bathroom. The breakfast was OUTSTANDING! There was no need to eat lunch because the spread June laid out was more than enough to fill us up. When we left very early in the morning to head out on our adventures, June packed us a breakfast to go. Her homemade mushroom sauce was soooooooooo good, we looked forward to getting up in the morning YUMMY!! June is the only person in the state of Alaska who is able to grow oyster mushrooms. The Golden Umbrella is 2 hours from Denali National Park and is a must see. We had super weather and were lucky enough to see Mount McKinley from top to bottom, putting John and I in the 30% of visitors who experience this magnificent mountain in full glory. We got to see the Northern Lights 3 times. There is great viewing from Cleary Summit which is about a 1/2 hour drive from Golden Umbrella. Pictures do not do the Aurora Borealis justice. On our last night, we saw the Aurora while sitting on the deck of the Golden Umbrella. If you're staying in Fairbanks, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Golden Umbrella. Denise & John Ambruster. Syndersville Pennsylvania. PS. We also got to see Molly (I named her that) the neighborhood moose.

We loved our stay with June and her family at the Golden Umbrella. They have a beautiful home on the edge of town, in a hilly, lovely area. Our room was very clean and very comfortable. The bathroom was sparkly clean. The breakfast was delicious, high quality, and had plenty of variety. She was helpful in planning our outings. We truly enjoyed our visit with them. We had use of the dining room and living room. We also enjoyed her other guests.We would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Golden Umbrella B&B on March 2013. The house and the room that we stayed in are very nice and clean. We stayed at the Aurora room which has a bathroom inside. It was named Aurora room because you could see aurora from the window if you were lucky enough :) The owners, June and Ping are really, really friendly. They will give you information on where to eat,shop, or go if you wanted to see the Aurora. June cooked delicious breakfast every morning, and the menu was different every day (scramble eggs, sausages, bread, ham, fruits, porridge, mushroom, etc.). June knew that it was my birthday when we stayed there, she and Ping bought me a birthday cake. I thought it was really touching and we really appreciated it. Ping and June would sit with us during breakfast and we had a very pleasant and interesting conversation. I feel like we are family and Golden Umbrella is a home away from home. We really enjoyed our stayed there and definitely will come back.
