Back in Fairbanks again after 2 great trips out of town. After a bit of a rest we flew with our new mates and a few others to Coldfoot Camp, in the Arctic Circle. A bit like a roadhouse in the NT really, sleeping dongas , basic food etc. I'm not sure what I had expected ,but the flight was really scenic, over more mountains , which is always the scary part for me. The brief Alaskan fall is spectacular, have ...
... attending the University of Alaska and were very well spoken, welcoming and knowledgeable. From the boat we observed a traditional fish camp with a fish wheel for catching salmon. One of our young guides demonstrated how they prepare a salmon for drying and smoking for dog food. Fish camp is still an important part of life for many Alaskans as salmon is the primary food source for sled dogs over winter. Each dog eats one salmon per day over the eight months of winter, so if ...
... to Valdez on the Gulf of Alaska. 800 miles of 48" diameter pipe meanders over mountain passes, across rivers and permafrost. The pipeline has delivered over 16 billion barrels of oil since 1977. This scenic turnout on the side of the highway lets you get right next to it! It is an impressive piece of engineering. The pipeline was originally designed to be operated for thirty years, do the math, it is well beyond that age now. With ...
... take ALL the pay dirt. In order to do this, they had to strip the surface of all vegetation. Then they removed the surface layer, which they called muck--the layer that would thaw and freeze in the yearly cycle. Then they had to remove the overburden, which was permafrost; in order to do that, pipes were driven into the ground and cold water pumped into them to thaw the permafrost. ...
... glaze' on the ears which was also surprising tasty. So we all agreed that while none of us were big on salmon, this form of fresh salmon was pretty good.
The camera man was named Michael and was reported to be associated with the Discovery Studios. The sound man (sorry we didn't catch his name) and the lady producer (Jenn) were freelance media people. They kept doing some recording while people were eating. Around 9:30 pm, we were finished eating ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dale and Jo View Suites Fairbanks
Dale and Jo View Suites is THE place to stay in Fairbanks. Spotlessly clean, peaceful and quiet, wonderfully welcoming and friendly owners, beautiful location in the hills. Close drive to everything in Fairbanks yet seemingly a world away. All of this -and more at an affordable price. Quite a find!
Perfection sums up our experience at Dale and Jo View Suites!
This place is wonderful, and the owners are icing on the cake. I want to go back just to see them again - Dale and Jo are both so friendly you feel like you've known them forever. Their home is on a hill on the outskirts of Fairbanks, with beautiful views of the river. Moose are frequently seen nearby, tho none while I was there, sadly. It is so tastefully decorated, with every convenience thought of, including wonderful Select Comfort beds. The bathroom looked like it belonged in a mansion (I was in the Executive Suite room). Jo makes great breakfasts and is very accomodating to your tastes - you can eat in their lovely dining room or take it back to your room if you prefer. She puts your breakfast in the frig so it's ready in the morning for you. Note that the entrance to the home is up a long flight of stairs, and then the rooms are upstairs, so you are prepared. They do have a suite on the ground floor too, in case you cant do stairs, and Jo showed it to me and it was lovely. If I can figure out how to make my pictures smaller (on my Apple)I will post them, because they are lovely. I will definitely go back here. In fact, they have convinced me to come in March for the Ice Festival and the northern lights, and Jo gives wake up calls for the lights.
Over the Top
We travel extensively, and this was one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. It started after a horrendous airline experience, arriving at 10:30PM, rather than 10:30AM, in a state of serious exhaustion. Jo took one look at us and offerered to make sandwiches, which we gratefully wolfed down. We stayed in the new Executive Spa room and no detail was lacking: sleep number bed, multiheaded shower, bidet, etc. in exquisitely crafted rooms. Jo could not have been more gracious or caring. The house sits on a hill outside Fairbanks with glorious views. If you need Fairbanks accomodations, don't miss this experience.
Absolutely flawless is the only way to give an overview of my stay at Dale and Jo View Suites in Fairbanks Alaska. When I walked into my suite, I could tell that I was not at your average Bed and Breakfast. Thought maybe I had just walked into a 5 star hotel. Service was well above what I would expect at the price and the room....very tasteful and well thought out. Spacious room, and filled with techno friendly touches (TV, DVD, and wireless internet connections). You'll enjoy even the typical amenities as they are quality (towels, soaps, and oh....the bed is to die for. Again, more like what you would find at a 5 star hotel, or....heaven...). All were above par for the price. Location is great (highway and airport are just minutes from the door) and getting around is a piece of cake. I anticipate they will go very far with this concept in attracting the business traveler, the "road warrior" as well as those just looking for that perfect place to lay back and just relax. The surrounding grounds are so peaceful and quiet that you will want to sleep forever. You won't want to leave, and I mean that. Give them a try, and I can bet you'll go back. Enjoy!
Despite the cold weather, our stay at Dale and Jo View Suites made our time in Fairbanks this past winter a truly memorable time. It was cold outside, but so very nice and warm in our Suite. The Suite was immaculate top to bottom, the location was perfect, the food divine and Dale and Jo were wonderful hosts. Jo made it a point to inform us the night that the Northern Lights came out. What a site to see. I would Highly Recommended these accommodations to anyone wanting to stay at what has to be one of the nicest accommadations in the area at a great price.
Jo responded to my email request for availability within a day. Even during the Winter, her response was prompt. I can't say the same for all of the other requests I'd made (some took up to 2 weeks to respond). My 13 year old son and I arrived in Fairbanks after being awake for 24 hours that included an airplane delay (hours), and my son getting sick. Jo insisted that I call when I left the airport, so she could ensure I arrived safely. To top off the never-ending day: I got stuck in the snow on the way from the airport! Jo and Dale came to my rescue and pulled me out. They didn't complain that it was 2 in the morning, and acted so gracious that I already loved the place. Walking into my suite, though, I realized just what a find I'd made. It was beautiful inside, and I was practically asleep before I even fell into the huge and comfy sleep number bed. Did I mention the warm walk to my bedroom in my socks? I'd never experienced radiant heated floors, but they were absolutely exquisite! I used the washer & dryer every couple of days, and the kitchen every day; talk about convenience. From leaving board games in my suite for my son & I to play, to giving tips on things to do and places to eat, to giving wakeup calls for aurora sightings; Dale and Jo Suites provides the warm and wonderful customer service too few places of business offer today. If I could make up a motto for Dale and Jo Suites, it would be "Where the Little Things Mean a Lot," or "Where You are Truly Valued as Our Guest." My 7-day stay at the Suites ended up being too short. I am looking forward to another trip to Alaska, and hopefully another stay at Dale and Jo Suites.
We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts, in many states, and Dale and Jo View Suites in Fairbanks, Alaska is easily in the top 3 we've ever stayed in.
I recently stayed six nights at Dale & Jo's View Suites in Fairbanks, AK. It was the best B&B experience I've ever had. The hosts, Jo mostly but Dale as well, were as accommodating as possible and even alerted me when the Northern Lights lit up the sky. That was truly an unforgettable experience.
I would give my highest recommendation to anyone travelling to Fairbanks to give Dale & Jo's a try. I am a single traveler, but while I was there, a family with 2-year-old twins arrived and were easily accommodated downstairs.
Staying at Dale & Jo's was like staying at home -- or at least the home I could wish for.
We Loved It.
Summer of 2005 my wife and I stayed at Dale and Jo View Suites for 2 nights. It is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Our room had a king size select number bed which gave us a great nights sleep. The owners could not have been nicer and the room was spotless. The view is wonderful and it's very peaceful and quiet. I have and will continue to recommend this B & B to everyone I know.
A Wonderful Stay
What an incredible B & B. We have stayed at many places in our travels, but none have been as nice as this. The decor is 5 star plus and the service only exceeds this. This is one of the most quiet places we have ever stayed. The home sits high above the road on a cal-de-sac and thus the lack of traffic noise was wonderful. As we sat outside enjoying the amazing views of the Alaskan Range and the Chena and Tanana Rivers one could truly relax and bask in all the amazing beauty. The room we had has a king size Sleep Number bed. We had never slept on one of these before, but we found that in being able to adjust the firmness we got some of the best nights rest ever. The Innkeepers where great and have done an amazing job. We would highly recommend this to one and all.
