Property description

Perfect for the short term traveler, extended stays (over a month) are available, too. This beautiful newly remodeled, 750 sq.ft. one bedroom apartment has all new furnishings and better than hotel quality details. Private separate entrance on the ground floor. One bedroom with queen sized bed, all new bedding & new premium mattress. Apartment can accomodate up to 4 people, but it is best for single person, a couple, or a family. Free wi-fi Internet, flat panel TV with free cable, office/den in apartment with FAX/copier. Full bathroom includes washer & dryer, hair dryer, shampoo & conditioner. Fully equipped kitchen with all dishes, pots & pans, cooking utensils, basic spices, etc. Morning coffee is provided. It is conveniently located near the University of Alaska Fairbanks, (3 miles), and 8 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from shopping.
The view from the window is a mix of spruce, birch and aspen trees. Flower gardens, including iris and lilacs, and a vegetable garden are on the property. In the Summer, we are close to the botanical garden at UAF, and in the Winter, if the auroras are out, they are very likely to be seen right over our house, with no city light pollution to dilute them.

Car: Necessary

We are located near the University of Alaska Fairbanks, on the west side of town, only 8 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from shopping, yet still secluded, private wooded setting. In the Summer, we are very close to the botanical garden, and the UAF Large Animal Research station with musk ox and caribou, (reindeer). In the Winter, the auroras can be seen going right over our house!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Les & Carol Smallwood, have been residents in Fairbanks, Alaska, for over 23 years. This home you'd be staying at has been built by Les. The year purchased just indicates the year we purchased the piece of land it sits on. Located among aspen and spruce trees, the apartment suite is on the lower lever and was just remodeled. We have two dogs and one cat, (all friendly and will not bother you), we love our location and privacy and hope you'll consider staying with us. We look forward to making your stay memorable.

Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks:
This piece of property is a total of 2.5 acres that was purchased by Les Smallwood in 1991, and then he began the process of clearing the woods and building the house you see today on it. We picked this part of town because it is near the University, doesn't have a lot of commercial business cluttering and hiding the natural beauty of the area, it is private and quiet, and it is still very close and convenient to everything in town. It is also located within the best schools' districts in the city, ensuring that our kids would go to the best public schools available.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Living with woods all around means privacy, and that you may get visits from the local moose. The air is fresh, and the water tastes good right out of the faucet, no filtering needed. If you are here in the Summer, the days are long and beautiful. In the Winter, the auroras are clear and strong, without any city light pollution.
