The Falcon Inn is a beautiful log building on the banks of the Yukon River in interior Alaska. It is a wonderful and relaxing place to come and enjoy quiet time. We have free wireless internet, two decks and a look out tower for your relaxation and viewing of the beautiful mountains, bluffs, river and wilderness in the remote town of Eagle. Eagle is a very historical town and an old army post. Eagle Historical Society and Museums offer a walking tour daily. Log cabins also available.

I am a teacher and have taught for over 20 years in Eagle. I moved to Alaska from Minnesota in 1993, I met my husband in Eagle and have lived here ever since. We built the Falcon inn log bed and breakfast and opened in 1996, the same year our daughter was born. We have been opening the B&B every May through October for guests to enjoy the wilderness setting along the Yukon River since 1996.
I love teaching in my multi-graded classroom where I teach all subjects. I am a science and math teacher by profession.
My family started mushing dogs recreationally in 1996 and continue to raise and run sled dogs each winter for fun and recreation, it is the reason I live in Alaska along with the remote wilderness setting.
My family loves to read, raise dogs, run dogs, build log buildings, and try to give back to our community and state. We live in Eagle year round and work in the community as a teacher and department of transportation operator foreman. Charlie keeps the roads and airport in Eagle open year round and the Taylor Highway open from April 15 to October 15th. Marlys teaches grades 6th- 12th grade all subjects at Eagle Community School. She just received the Excellent Teacher award from BP in 2017 and was one of two state of Alaska finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Math teaching in 2017. She loves kids and loves teaching.
Dogs take up a lot of their free time and is definitely a passion. It keeps them fit, outside in all types of weather and connected to the land and subsistence living in Alaska. They love living in the small dog mushing community and enjoy the remote trails right out of their dog yard.
When the snow falls in Eagle most of us start to drive snow machines, dog teams, or ski for transportation.
We live a simple life and do not have a lot of luxuries. We drive 400 miles one way for groceries when we travel to Fairbanks to do our shopping. We have two gas stations, one grocery store and one restaurant in Eagle. We have a large historical museum and The Yukon Charlie Preserve. We are a jumping off spot to the wilderness. We are a truly remote Community. We have quiet, we have beauty and we have serenity.
We love our quiet life style with our dogs, building projects and wilderness opportunities right outside our front door. Few people today understand this type of life style. It is truly a unique lifestyle in our technological dense world. We do not have cell phone coverage, but we do have internet and direct T.V. Come and join us in a truly unique adventure and visit Eagle and our B&B, stay for a day, a week-end or two weeks. You will leave rested and with a new perspective on life.
You are invited to our log bed and breakfast, we would love to help you enjoy and learn about our wonderful life style and experience our home.
