“AMAZING VIEWS AND AMAZING HOSTS”

Just got back from our trip to Alaska where the highlight was the Aurora Borealis we viewed ALL THREE nights at the Cleary Summit condo. Chuck and Margaret were absolutely wonderful and helpful to printing us out maps to our next destination to running up and waking us to let us know when the Aurora was making an appearance outside. It was sooo worth it to be up in the sky overlooking everything as opposed to down in the valley in a motel.

The condo was easy to get to, cozy, warm and had everything we needed. I rented the place and two friends came along and the whole time they kept saying... "Great place... perfect choice!!"

Will definitely choose Cleary Summit again when we come back.

“Amazing Views”

Truly a home away from home. The owners description is 100% correct. 2 bedrooms with comfortable beds and their own full bathrooms along with a living area, full kitchen, and best of all almost 360 degree views of the surrounding area. The view to the south of the Alaska range is superb. Sunrise and sunset provide a wonderful opportunity for enjoying the pink highlights on the mountains.

Evening is the reason most come to vist - the Aurora. It usually cooperates and being 20 miles from Fairbanks provides excellent viewing. We would suggest this as a place to vist - especially for 2 couples for simply enjoying the view and cooking a meal in the fully equipped kitchen.

One of the best places we have ever stayed.

Chuck and Margaret are some of the most wonderful hosts I've come across in all my travels! My husband and I were immediately treated like family. The views of Mt McKinley were spectacular from this condo and the views of the Northern Lights could not be beat! Honestly, we can't wait to return!
