Property description

This huge upper unit in the duplex building has a lovely river setting. It is located right on the bus line and within walking distance to the Tanana Valley Farmer's Market, the Tanana Valley Fairgrounds, and Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge. Close proximity to Alaska Railroad Train Depot and local popular eatery - The Cookie Jar Restaurant .

The living area faces the south and is very sunny, even during short winter days.

Perennial flowers and flowering trees compliment the water front lawn.

Local wildlife such as moose, beaver, and waterfowl can be viewed year round. Dog teams use the river access to run their team on in the winter and can be watched comfortably from indoors or out on the deck.
In the winter you can drive your snow machine right onto the slough and out to the Chena River to destinations like the Pike's Waterfront Lodge or the Chena Pump House.

The lot next door has space available to park your motor home, boat, or other oversize vehicles.

Located on the city bus line, this property is within walking distance to the Tanana Valley Farmer's Market, Tanana Valley Fairgrounds, and Creamer's Migratory Wildlife Refuge.

It is a short distance to both the Alaska Railroad Depot and the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.

Bike paths connect you to all the local city sights and outlying rural areas.

The property faces the Noyes Slough which is a slough of the Chena River. During the gold rush era, there was a paddle boat that traveled the waterway. Now beavers, ducks, muskrats, moose, and other wildlife enjoy the quiet waters that flow along its banks.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: • Resident of Alaska for 40 years and counting.... • Elementary School Teacher 20+ years • Also owns VRBO #430134 • Owner/operator of A Moose in the Garden B&B which has been rated # 1 on Trip Advisor

Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks:
Over the few years that I have been enjoying hosting guests at A Moose in the Garden B&B, I have known there was a demand for an accommodation where travelers can cook for themselves during an extended stay in a more private setting. I will be adding a log cabin on VRBO hopefully by July 2015. Stay tuned!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This property is centrally located and right on the bus line.
