About Kathy Alonzo
I am an elementary school teacher. I have lived in Alaska for over 40 years and still love it! I have been in the tourist business for over thirteen years and am happy to be a resource for your visit. In this photo, I am with Brent Sass the year he won the Yukon Quest! The Yukon Quest rivals the more well-known Iditarod. It is also 1,000 mile dog sled race. The race is international as it goes from Fairbanks to Whitehorse. It starts in Fairbanks on even number years and ends here on odd numbered years. It is always starts the first weekend of February.
Kathy Alonzo purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Kathy Alonzo chose Fairbanks
I purchased this duplex as a single family home and my daughter lived in the private downstairs apartment that has its own driveway and entrance from the alley. When she recently got married, I decided to move into the downstairs and rent the upstairs out on this vacation rental website. After running a bed and breakfast for many years, it seemed like a natural step. I enjoy my privacy, but I am always receptive to guests who want to learn more about the area by email, texting, or personal conversation.

Perfect home away from home!
This log cabin was perfect for my week in Fairbanks taking care of relatives. It was clean, super comfortable, cozy, and stocked with everything I needed. Even sharp knives! I loved the large bathtub and being set back from the street. The only thing I would change is darker curtains in the bedroom for summertime sleeping
I hope to stay here again in the future!
A Home away from Home!
WOW!!! That sums up this property and amenities! We visited from WI for serveral days and this place was absolutely perfect for us. We were out everyday hiking and exploring and were able to come home to relax and prepare meals in a awesome kitchen, and even able to grill a few times too. Super clean, comfortable, close to everything and location was perfect. The description of the property in the VRBO is spot-on and everything was as expected, and more! Will definitely be returning!!! Thanks for a great stay and hospitality Kathy!!!!
Very cozy stay
Enjoyed property very cozy log as you wished to live in Alaska
Convenient, comfortable cabin
This is a comfy, clean, well appointed cabin a few minutes from every venue in Fairbanks. It is quiet and Kathy is accessible and friendly. We would come back in a heartbeat.
Truly a 5-Star Experience
Everything about Fairbanks exceeded our expectations. The house wonderful of course, beautiful, safe, central location, and exceedingly charming. Kathy was also the bomb, she was so helpful and on top of things any concerns we had she addressed immediately and fully. She was so inviting and made us feel at home for the entire duration of our stay. We had wine with her one night and she was so much fun to just hang out with. Fairbanks itself was quite fun.
I recommend snowmobiling and dog mushing above all others. Running Reindeer Ranch I found to be a disappointing and expensive despite rave reviews. Food was surprisingly incredible, our favorite having been the Crepery (we had the cheesecake with strawberries crepe almost daily).
Overall I dont think you could find a better place to stay!
Kathy is super nice and the place is very clean. It got everything we need and more!
