Can anyone recommend any cabin or apartment type housing that we might obtain for our six week stay instead of hotels?

Well my goodness I thought this was chat not English class. Forgive me FERRY ride. Ok if this is how Alaskans act maybe we should find some other place to learn. I didn't know that we were being judged by our misspelled words. No need to be nasty. But thanks for the insight on northern diversity. Maybe you should experience some southern charm.

There is an Extended Stay Hotel in Fairbanks. They have a small kitchen in each suite so you can save on meals. There are likely furnished apartments. your best bet would be to check the local paper for what's available.

So you are going to write a column based on a comment on an internet forum?

Don't let the negative people discourage you about Alaskans. There are silly people everywhere. As to housing....I would try either Sophie's Station or Wedgewood Resort. Both of them have extended stay housing. I work at the hospital and lots of travelling nurses, etc. stay at those two places. Also, in regards to taxis. If you can afford it, at all, consider renting a car. The taxis are kind of pricey, if you ask me. Plus, there is so much to see around town or just outside of town, and you'll be able to get around much easier with a car. Just be very careful on the roads. If you have never driven on ice or snow(which is what it sounds like), you need to slow down and leave a lot of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. The intersections can get especially nasty, so start to brake well before you think you would have to.

Come on up and enjoy yourself.
