Friendly, clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in early April. Even got some sunshine! Dan and Linda were friendly and helpful, and the apartment was well appointed, had comfortable beds, and was generally a quiet cozy place to stay. Would stay here again, for sure! Thanks for the great stay!

Very nice & well-kept property.

  • 4 of 5

Accommodations are very nearly new and very nice. Other than the main house (we so nobody there during our 2 night stay), it is secluded and private. The rooms are on top of the garage with a large gravel parking & fire pit area. The bedrooms are across the hall from each other, so privacy is not great. We had 4 adults and the one bathroom was manageable. Full kitchen and utensils. Like most Alaskan properties there is no AC. The smaller of the 2 bedrooms was a bit hot at night because it has no windows, when outside temps were in the 70's. The larger bedroom does have one window & cooled down at night. Both rooms had fans. Property backs up to a large slough/meandering river. The deck is useful for entering the property, but there is no room for chairs. However, there is ample room around the firepit for chairs and a view of the river. There is a very large grass yard with the main property, but we did not have any children with us, so we did not inquire if it could be used for play. Property is 5 minutes from convenience store/gas, North Pole store and highway to Fairbanks. Linda was very nice to provide a tray of 'welcome brownies' and bottled water in the fridge.

Beautiful apartment in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights at this property. The apartment was immaculate with beautiful furnishings. It was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked and the fresh brownies were a welcome treat. Linda and Dan are friendly and hospitable. We were 20 minutes away from downtown Fairbanks. It was a lovely place to relax after a long day of sightseeing.

THE place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I came to the area for a short surprise visit for my son's promotion. He lives in North Pole so I wanted to stay nearby, while giving him, his wife, and baby some space in their own home. The Flying Duck fit the bill for convenience to them. However, when they move on post, my future visits will probably involve more driving and less convenience for me because this is the place I intend to come back to!

This is a very peaceful property, and I didn't take advantage of all the amenities. It is an over-the-garage apartment (stairs could be a concern for people who have a hard time with them), but you would hardly believe it! Beautiful inside, very tastefully done. This place is definitely not furnished with flea marker finds as I've experienced at other rentals. Lovely furniture (in fact I've taken pix so I can purchase similar pieces), excellent woodwork in the cabinetry. Plenty of super hot water (although the shower head may be a bit low for taller folk, it's perfectly adequate). Both bedrooms stay blacked out very well - we were here during the never-ending daylight. I wish I had had time to have a fire in the pit looking over Chena Slough! Lots of ducks to watch at all hours.

I slept in the master bedroom - most comfortable bed in a rental I've ever stayed in. No cable or satellite, but lots of DVDs and VHS - not an issue for me. I read all the other reviews about the pan of brownies Linda leaves for her guests. I thought, "Oh, that's nice", but figured - they're brownies, what's the big deal? Well, everyone is right! Thickest fudgiest BEST brownies ever! And a welcome sight when I wake up at 0530 and the Country Cafe (fantastic breakfast spot in NP) doesn't open until 0800! My only negative thing to say is so minor it's almost not worth mentioning - no sugar for the coffee (only the yellow packet fake stuff). If I didn't have to wait so long for the Countrt Cafe to open it wouldn't have even been an issue. And I could've easily picked up some sugar at the store but it wasn't that big of a deal (just thought Linda would like to know).

I never saw Linda during my trip but she checked in with me regularly and was easy to contact. I've stayed in a few dozen VRBO and AirBnB type properties over the years and this has been my favorite. Clean, quiet, comfortable, and convenient. I will be back!

Quaint rental close to Fairbanks

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place and likely we will stay again. We are family from Anchorage, with a toddler (3.5 yr old), traveling with a friend from NC. It was our friend's first time to visit Fairbanks. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Rental was exceptionally clean and well stocked with cooking items. The rental overlooks a creek and we saw moose from the entryway. Pellet stove was easy to use and was a nice touch to making the place feel cosy when it was snowing outside. Nice place, about 5 minute drive to North Pole and 30-mins to Fairbanks.

Peaceful and Pretty

  • 5 of 5

It sits on a creek with gorgeous sunsets. The rental is pristine with nice furnishings and very comfortable beds. It is well-equipped and even has bottled water provided with a pan of brownies. WOW! The rental is a good distance from Fairbanks, which we found as a plus. It just took 15 minutes to get to Fairbanks. If you like the "in town noise" then this peace and quiet may not be for you. There is no cable TV, but there is a TV with movies and games. It feels like it is brand new and is above a garage, so there are a few stairs. The owners are personable and helpful and are very nice people. A person does not find many rentals that are this clean, well-decorated, and cozy. Anyone would be happy here.
