Property description

The Vista Valley Guest house is a well-built home situated on an elite, wooded 6 acres overlooking a valley. The home is located right up the road from historic Ester, the Malemute Saloon, and the popular Ester Community Park with a summer playground, soccer field, and winter ice skating. It's just 10 minutes from the University of Alaska and 20 minutes to downtown Fairbanks and all the Golden Heart City has to offer.

The kitchen, with cherrywood cabinets, is amply equipped with all the tools you need to cook for a group. The BBQ on the deck is a great way to enjoy the Alaska summer and the wonderful nature views. Wake up to the aroma of incredible coffee with the Nespresso fully-automatic espresso machine. For coffee purists, we also provide a burr grinder and a traditional coffee machine.

Catch up on laundry while in Fairbanks. Vista Valley Guest House has a front-loading washer and dryer available for guests and the detergent is provided.

There are four bedrooms, a total of 2 queen beds, 2 full bed, a twin trundle, and an extra rollaway cot, so there will be plenty of room for parents, kids, grandparents, or a group of friends traveling together. We provide luxury linens and towels for each of the beds and the three full bathrooms.

The sitting room with soapstone wood stove invites you to curl up with a good book, and the living room has a flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player and surround sound, with a small selection of DVD's provided. Fast wireless internet will keep you connected to family or friends while in Alaska. There is also some toys for young children available.

Relax and come enjoy the private elite getaway and beautiful view available at Vista Valley View Guest House!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Eve grew up right here on the block, and in fact, much of her family still lives in the Vista Way neighborhood, with her mom still located just a few acres away! She loves reading, music, camping, riding snow mobiles and tries to make time for travel, going to live theatre, and Sunday drives.

Why the Owner Chose Fairbanks:
My brother designed and built this house. I feel like I have a dream kitchen, and take a lot of pride in my brother's tile work throughout the house. We hope you can come and enjoy the space, the comfort, and the privacy available at Vista Valley Guest House, just a gorgeous 15 minute drive from Fairbanks.
