Fairbanks is a lively, interesting community with lots to do all year round. We live in a wonderfully diverse, suburban neighborhood not far from the University and on the bus line which can take you downtown or up to the University. You will stay in our small but cheery guest room with a private bath in the hall. We are used to sharing our space so you can expect a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The room is tucked in a corner of our one-story house and looks on the back yard. Our place is full of my husband's documentary photos and we have an extensive library of books on Alaska.
You will be welcome to have the run of the house except for the photo studio. In good weather, lounge on our back yard deck to admire the delphiniums and use the grill. We are also happy to share the kitchen if you choose to forgo the many restaurants here in town. You may want to use our little, two-person sauna.

Generally we like to visit but we'll take our cue from you. We have traveled extensively in Alaska, especially in the villages, and Robin worked at the Visitors Center so we are happy to help you plan your stay and travels if you desire.
We supply light breakfast snacks. Children are very welcome so let us know so we can childproof ahead of time. Pets can be considered when you book.
My husband, Jim and I have lived in Alaska for over forty years, first in the bush for 12 years where our son was born and then in Fairbanks where we raised him. Jim is a semi-retired documentary photographer of village life, Antarctica, and even the original Selma March. I have retired from itinerant work in early childhood education, mostly with Head Start programs in the bush. We love reading, the arts, travel, camping in our tiny trailer, and film. Jim loves science and I love to make art and writing. We are connected with the University and Arts communities in Fairbanks.
