We stayed here in the winter, so we missed the beautiful grounds that I'm sure would have added to the ambiance. The hostess was friendly, but the breakfast left much to be desired. Keep in mind that I'm from the south, so I'm by no means a food snob. The tepid, watered down coffee was probably the worst I've had... More

We stayed with Rita for 3 nights during our trip to Alaska in June 2014. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and breakfast plentiful. Rita was a great hostess and shared some places we may have missed since they were a bit off the beaten track. However, the best part of our stay was when she came running to our... More

I'm obviously the odd one out here, as I wasn't impressed with this B&B. I didn't find it to be luxurious. I thought it needed a good clean. It is a large house, and the garden and grounds are lovely, but I wasn't comfortable there. We stayed in the Firewood room, which hadn't been dusted for a while, the carpet... More

The grounds for the Alaskan Frontier Gardens were absolutely beautiful, with flowers everywhere. The building and furnishings were elegant with an Alaska wildlife theme in the common area downstairs. Bedrooms were on the second floor up a staircase. Our hostess was quite friendly. We stayed in the Butterfly Room which had a comfortable bed with a wonderful comforter. Our bathroom... More

Really enjoyed our stay here in the Fireweed room. More luxurious than the average B&B, spacious, comfortable and very nice breakfasts. The various artefacts adorning the walls are a nice touch that add uniqueness to the place and help it stick in the memory.

Thanks for the great time at your B&B, we thoroughly enjoyed spending time there and getting to know you Rita. If you get a chance to stay with Rita do it! She can share her 50 years of experience and things to do in Anchorage area and will feed you a great breakfast! Clean and comfortable just like home.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here in mid-September. The room we had was large and very comfortable. The whirlpool tub was a bonus, and much needed after 2 weeks of hiking and fising. Rita made a nice breakfast and we had a great conversation with her. Would stay here again in the future.

This is a beautiful property and is owned by a great hostess, Rita. She makes a wonderful breakfast for you each morning. Clean and comfortable accommodations. We were there three nights. I'd return if ever in the area again.

We stayed at the Fireweed Room for two nights, very comfortable bed, the bathroom was down the hall, it was supposed to be ours but when we arrived it had been used and not cleaned... It would be nice if there was a key to it that would ensure private use. the breakfast was lovely and so was the owner.... More

We stayed one night at Alaskan Frontier Garden Bed and Breakfast, and wished we could have stayed longer. It's location is very convenient to use as a home-base to see sights in the area, and the Ivory Room is a luxurious treat. The hostess is very organized, with clear instructions for guests arriving even when she is not there to... More
