“B&B for Fairbanks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2008

Quaint home converted to a B & B. Location is excellent as it is withing walking distance of restaurants and tourist attractions. It is even convenient to the Fairbanks Visitor Center. The owner is John Davis. He cooks wonderful omelets, providing a wide selection of jellies, preserves, sweet rolls and fresh fruit for breakfast. His suggestions for places to see was most helpful and added immeasurably to our visit to Fairbanks and Alaska itself.

This is a classic B&B, with a very friendly, if not slightly eccentric, proprietor, and decent breakfast. It's a bit flowery for me, but if you're looking for something other than a boring, nondescript room in Fairbanks (and there are plenty of these -- I checked), this is the place to go.

John, the proprietor, is very knowledgeable about Alaska. He's been there for something like 18 years(I could be wrong). He's friendly and more than willing to accommodate his guests.

Two caveats though:

1) The three bedrooms come in three sizes: Small, smaller, and absolutely tiny. The tiny room is large enough only for a single person with carry-on luggage. Seriously, the bed takes up nearly 100% of the room, and it can be frustrating to simply turn yourself around when standing up. The other rooms are an OK size, but because they are located in the former attic of the house, ceiling angles are weird so it's not possible to utilize the entire room without bumping your head.

2) The spiral staircase to the upstairs bedrooms in the house is REALLY tight. If you have large luggage, count on wrestling hard to make it up the steps. When I mentioned something about this to John, his reply was "you shouldn't have traveled with such a large suitcase." I thought this was odd. My luggage was large because it was full of arctic clothing for my trip north of the Brooks Range (-45F degrees in February 2008).

I would recommend this B&B, but beware of the caveats.

Stayed February 2008

While on a road trip from Anchorage to Fairbanks in September my boyfriend, our friend and I intended to camp until the heavens opened. We dug out our rough guide to alaska and spotted a potential bed and breakfast for the evening. Ah, Rose Marie, we called and John the gracious and gentle owner accomodated us in a beautiful room for a very reasonable price. The b&b is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The following morning we intended to leave after breakfast. It was the breakfast that persuaded us to stay another night. It was fantastic cereals, toast coffee, fresh fruit salmon and corgette omlette and fresh muffins. Sumptuous beyond belief. John makes a real effort to make you feel welcome and his attention to detail was wonderful. A real treat, much better than a wet tent. It was a real highlight of our RTW trip. If in Fairbanks stay there, you'll love it.

Stayed September 2006
