"At-home Comfort" at 7 Gables

4.0 on April 13, 2018

Friendly and "at-home comfort": Over the past 12 years I've stayed at 7 Gables whenever I have to work in the Fairbanks area. I've stayed in the main house and in three of their offsite cottages located in adjoining neighborhoods. The main house is good if you prefer the B&B format and to intermingle with other guests. The offsite cottages are nice if you want a more private experience.

Not Like I Remebered

My favorite thing about 7 Gables Inn was the themed breakfasts and to walk in to a moderate continental breakfast was a bit of a disappointment. Also the maintenance standards of the rooms has gone down as there were several items that were needing attention.

7Gables is a great place

My wife and I have both stayed at 7 Gables over the years and always have been very happy..

We had an enjoyable stay at the 7 Gables. The master suite was great, and the large jacuzzi was a nice add on. Make sure you know what room you are getting. We made a mistake, and asked for a kitchenette, which is in another building, and definitely. not B and B style. They were great about switching the room for us, and we loved our final room. Just be sure what you are getting, as there are three properties all under one name. Fairbanks is an interesting town, and has a great park/historical center.

Peaceful B&B

4.4 on August 01, 2016

This B&B is located in a quiet residential neighborhood with many restaurants within walking distance. We were greeted warmly by our hostess and escorted to our room (which we were allowed to choose from two available rooms). The breakfasts were delicious, the setting relaxing and our hostess greeted us each morning with a smile. She was also glad to help us prepare and plan for the rest of our visit of Fairbanks, AK. We are already planning on returning and staying at 7 Gables Inn.

Quiet and relaxing.

The people that run this B&B make you fell at home from the start.In the morning they make a homemade breakfast with something new every day.

Great Value!

We rented a two bedroom (actually three bedroom) apartment, which was very large and nice for the price we paid. The hosts were wonderful, although we did not get to spend much time chatting with them due to our sightseeing plans in Fairbanks. I did not eat breakfast there, but I can imagine it is delicious, based on how good the chocolate chip cookies were when we checked in. We ate dinner at Chena's Alaskan Grill, which is a great restaurant on the river that is within walking distance of the Inn. The greenhouse that serves as the front of the Inn is great. They also offered us use of boats to float down the river with, which was nice.

Good breakfast selection with cooked food.

Clean room and good breakfasts. They have a lot of properties so things are very hectic and fast paced. Also not very private & quiet if that's what you're looking for.

quiet and friendly place in Fairbanks

Friendly hosts, clean and quiet place. Home-like atmosphere

awesome breakfast!

4.6 on April 30, 2016

great place, only able to stay one night, but if ever back to Fairbanks, we would definitely plan to stay here. A little mix-up on our room, but ended up being ok, we only slept in the room. Only negative is there are stairs.
