My Dad and I stayed in the Denali Room, comfortable beds, our own door to go in and out, private bath and shower. Jim and Kathy are very helpful, accommodating and can guide you to interesting outings. The breakfasts were delicious and different each morning. I felt it to be homey and comfortable. If ever up this way again, I... More

The Alaskan Host is a unique B&B that was the perfect place for six nights in July for my wife, two teen daughters, father-in-law and me. I give this place five stars for the hospitality of hosts Kathy and Jim Huston; the fun, beautiful, interesting property that they live in and share; the delicious breakfasts; and the overall value. We... More

This is a tough review to write. There are few places to stay in the Willow area; the property grounds are drop dead gorgeous and our stay was fine, unique and affordable, but I am not sure that we would stay there again. I think we would go to Wasilla if I was avoiding Anchorage or Talkeetna. The area: There... More

A very nice B&B with a jaw dropping view of the beautiful pond on the property with spectacular mountains in the background. A great place to unwind on our last night in Alaska. If you have a afternoon flight from Anchorage it is an easy 90 minute drive to the airport from Alaskan Host. The hosts were very pleasant and... More

For the true Alaskan experience - this is the place to stay! The hosts, Jim and Kathy Huston, make you feel like you have known them forever, and welcomed us like family. The home is warm, inviting, comfortable and uniquely Alaskan. Jim's wildlife and fish trophies enhance the artistic, Alaska-themed rooms that Jim designed and created – including 3D mural... More

We were looking for a place to host our first ever ladies retreat from our church. Since this was the first time we had a retreat, we were a bit nervous looking for a place to stay. When we stumbled upon the Alaskan Host B and B, we knew we had a winner! The living room was large, yet cozy... More

I can't begin to stay how much we enjoyed our stay here. I loved how your decorated the rooms! The setting is amazing and the breakfast was the best ever! We were excited to sample moose sausage and it was delicious! Kathy and Jim could not have been more helpful to us. We were made to feel right at home... More

This was the perfect ending that we could not have asked for. The best B&B with the 2 most gracious hosts - jim & Kathy !!!! We would totally recommend that you drive from Anchorage (90 mins?) just to stay here. It's worth it.

Alaskan Host B & B is a wonderful place to stay in the Willow area! Kathy and Jim were amazing hosts, and their home is beautiful. They are located on a quiet lake on their homestead property away from the highway. I enjoyed a great evening hike on the trail that Jim pointed out, and watched the grebes and geese... More

The b&b was wonderful. We only had difficulty trying to find the place when we used the "get directions" icon on one of the Alaskan H ost b&b sites which navigated us about 5 miles from where we needed to go. Other than that, our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. Kathy and Jim were very accommodating, even gave us... More
