This house is truly something special - you can tell the owner puts special attention into their space. When we arrived, there were fresh flowers, a small gift to welcome us to the Golden Heart City and an immaculate home waiting for us. All of this combined made for a perfectly peaceful stay! Everything about this home is thought of for you, from the towels and sheets to the tasteful decor - I couldn't ask for a cozier bed to sleep in! I know I'll be staying at the Fireweed House the next time I'm in Fairbanks, what about you? 💫

Luxury Accommodation

Fireweed House Luxury Home Rental is a 3 minute walk to restaurants, shops, historic sites, the Chena River Walk, and so much more! Owned by the Mayor of Fairbanks during the great flood of 1967; this home was entirely remodeled in 2018 to host visitors to my home town! Focused on local products and amenities including soaps from Denali Dreams Soap Co., locally roasted coffee, fresh flowers in every room and a welcome gift hand picked for your stay by your host. Whatever we choose, it’s always local, in season, and tailored to you!  

It became Fireweed House kind of by accident. If you are not familiar with the flower by that name, it quickly establishes after a forest fire and is abundant in Alaska. When I was growing up in Fairbanks I heard it called the “4th of July Flower” too, and I hated it when they came out. To me, it meant that summer was winding down and the rainy season was on the way. August and the Tanana Valley Fair bring afternoon rain showers, and it’s not quite as hot as June and July. As you may be aware, the summers in Fairbanks are short and sweet.  Sweet enough to keep us here through another long, cold winter!

When the custom stair railing was created, it happened that I could choose an iron panel with a flower cutout. I could have chosen Iris...or Fireweed. I really liked the way the Fireweed looked but I had to overcome my past angst over the appearance of the flower signaling the coming winter. I haven’t  always had the best relationship with winters in Fairbanks. Don’t get me wrong, if you would like to really see Fairbanks and how challenging yet beautiful it is in the dead of winter, you should come! Fireweed House is warm! The snow is crisp and sparkly! The Northern Lights are bright!

I have to admit when you live in Fairbanks, Alaska year-round, the winter does drag on- they are up to 8 months long with not a lot of daylight in the middle. Spring is without a doubt a welcome sight- and it doesn’t last long before summer is in full swing! The majority of tourism happens during the short and sweet time. But there are people who are interested in seeing the other side of our experience here as well. It could be you! I would love to host you at any time during the year.

So; we went with the Fireweed for the custom stair railing, and love it so much we named the house after it! It is central to the house and has become the centerpiece. A close second to that is the beautiful Cambria Quartz installed throughout the house in counter tops and window sills.

At Fireweed House we enjoy living it up under the Midnight Sun during the summer and staying warm under the Northern Lights in the winter. With a land as unique as this, ANY time is the perfect time to book the best BnB in Fairbanks, AK - Fireweed House!
