Recent stay was great, clean, private, cozy with a great breakfast. Locations of the rooms and staircases are a bit quirky but it add to the mystique. Great Value friendly environment. Thank you would definitely stay again.
Step back into history coupled with modern conveniences. The sleep number bed set in vintage surroundings, the claw-footed tub with a great shower, credenza with a TV tucked inside--all made for a wonderful Fairbanks stay.
Our stay was a wonderful one but too short for our liking. Next time we will plan to stay longer. Our rooms were like a small apartment. So precious! The museum/historical value is a definite plus. So many interesting facts you learn about the town of Fairbanks. Our host was like a long lost friend. We truly felt like one of the family in this beautiful bed and breakfast!
Staying there for one night is an awesome experience for us. We got six people but the room can only hold four, but the host is kind enough to accommodate us all, just for a extra few bucks, we really appreciate that.
We found the house to be a time capsule of history with great attention to detail in the furnishings and decorations. The warm welcome and service from Mrs Tarrio makes one feel at home straight away. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and the house is located in easy walking distance from the main attractions in Fairbanks - all in all a great experience and thoroughly recommended.
Everything about our stay was perfect! The breakfast, service, staff and warm Alaskan hospitality! I would definitely recommend this place to any one looking for a charming and quaint place to stay in Fairbanks. Great value for the price and you feel like you are staying at your home away from home.
With living in Fairbanks I've driven by Alaska Heritage House a hundred or more times and never knew what I was missing. What a surprise to discover such a gem in its authentic restored beauty, well kept and w clean accommodations. Staying here lends a hand to understanding what luxury meant at the turn of the century. I've already told several close friends to sneak off for a romantic night with their partners here.
I decided to go to the Heritage House because I didn't want to stay in a chain hotel (I can go to those anywhere, but I was on vacation in Fairbanks and wanted to explore local places). The pictures didn't so it justice. The building has a lot of history - it's even registered as a historic place, and the rooms were gorgeous. Not only that, but the innkeeper was friendly, the place was clean, and the breakfast was wonderful. I'll definitely recommend it to anyone who plans to stay over in Fairbanks, and I'm definitely staying there again the next time I'm in the area.
.Stayed in the "Maid's Room" on a recent Saturday night in December, perfect place to spend the night as I explored Fairbanks. A block from major bus stops, convenient address for taxis, and tasty filling breakfast. I'll definitely stay again.
The only disappointment in our trip is that is was too short. All of the rooms are so neat and well-preserved and Telsie cares greatly about the history. Her cooking was delightful and the grounds are just amazing. We will absolutely be planning another stay here!
We have stayed at Seven Gables Inn B&B for 8 years now. It's a nice location in a quiet neighborhood and the rooms are comfortable. We have stayed in 4 of the rooms in their main house and 3 of the apartments in one of their other buildings. We have even celebrated Thanksgiving there with our extended family. I would recommend this place for your Fairbanks travels.
The problem we had was the noise. We were unable to get any sleep for the entire time we were there. Sunday night - all night - there was noise from above our room. It sounded like someone rolling furniture or something heavy around, loud heavy footsteps, and loud talking. I am not exaggerating when I say this went on the entire night. We got no sleep except a few restless minutes between the banging, stomping and talking. Monday evening we hoped to get some rest before our late night flight. From 7pm until we left at about midnight, the same thing went on (except for no talking this time). Rolling of furniture or rocks or something and loud footsteps went on all evening. When we complained after getting back home, the owner blamed us for not saying something the second day? I'm not sure how she thought that would help given we only stayed a few more hours. She denied our request for a partial refund.
My wife are from out of town and stayed for our one year anniversary. It's a great way to go if you're there for one night or weekend or even extended stay. Breakfast was really good, friendly Inn keepers, would stay here again
The Alaska Heritage House B&B was a great place to stay in Fairbanks. The location is within easy walk to downtown, visitor center, restaurants, or just walking along the Chena River. The hosts are wonderful. Van has a wonderful knowledge about the house and the beginnings of Fairbanks as well as things to see. It was like having your own personal tour guide which helped us see the major sites during our stay. Each breakfast was different and delicious. They accommodated my dietary issue of no lactose very easily. The first night I felt that my bed was too hard and they immediately moved us to the Garden Room which was perfect. I would highly recommend the Alaska Heritage House B&B. Barbara J.
My sister and her husband had a room, as did I. We thought the rooms were nicely appointed and each had their own bathroom. We arrived in the early morning hours and felt a bit 'lost'. It would have been nice to have a map or note on the 'front' door that made clear to come through the greenhouse into the main house and find the rooms. The Inn next door has the exact architecture and coloring which made arrival a bit confusing. But, Paul was gracious about being awakened to let us in. The hot breakfast was nice to have and the seating is very friendly and communal. We enjoyed our stay.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the 7 gables for four nights during March. We were upgraded to the estate room on arrival since the room we had booked was occupied. It was nice to have the space upgrade but our room looked like a converted garage which meant that it was very cold. There was a small heater but it did not manage to heat up the whole room. Our hosts were pleasant, although they seemed slightly inconvenienced by our presence more than anything. Their website described breakfast as a feast but we really just got waffle mix to make our own waffles and some yogurt and cereal.. I had also been excited since I read on their website that they had snowshoes and cross country skis to lend to their guests but neither was the case. Overall it suited our needs of being in town and being in our budget but it was a bit disappointing.
We stayed a week at 7 gables in the Bridal room and for the most part we were pleased. The room was quite small so we had no where to put our 2 big suitcases. Rooms were very clean and I thought they looked nice. Upon our arrival into the main area we were greeted, but the owners never introduced themselves. Not very organized in my opinion. Also, the husband either doesn't have a clue or doesn't care what's going on in his house because mid stay we were by the door putting our shoes on and he walks in and asked us if we needed to check in and questioned us after we said we had been there a few days. We were still in our room mid morning when the cleaning crew makes their rounds and they knocked and asked if we needed anything. I told her no that we were good for the day only to find out later on that after we left they went into our room anyways. Their website is a little misleading when it comes to the food. It was good, but in no means would I call it gourmet as they describe. It's a buffet and everything is places out kind of randomly. They serve breakfast between 7-8:30 which isn't very convenient if you want to sleep in a little bit and you almost have to get there between 7-7:30 because there won't be anything left and you'll be left with cereal and yogurt. Overall it was a nice stay. Little tweaks and some organization could make this place sooo much better.
No noise of doors or vacuums like in the halls of a hotel. No dry muffins for breakfast. Quiet radiant heating in floors and wall. Easy access to everywhere we wanted to go. And you can learn some great Alaska history besides! What's not to like?
Room was very cute and very warm due to being on top floor. Building was older and was what we expected. Breakfast in morning was amazing great way to start day. Sheets on bed were stained but that was quickly taken care of upon request.
