My husband and I stayed one night at Rita's beautiful bed & breakfast during our honeymoon, and wish we could have stayed longer! We arrived late, and Rita had left a card and the key for us outside, but she still came out to greet us at the front door. The B&B is not centrally located, it was about a... More

We were at the end of our trip to Alaska. Just stayed overnight before our flight the next morning. This is a beautiful, exceptionally comfortable place to stay. Rita is so nice. Wished we could have stayed another few nights. Maybe our next trip! It is true that this B&B is 12 miles from the airport and not centrally located.... More

This was our first trip to Alaska, and it was off to a wonderful start thanks to Rita! She is so friendly, and recommended some things we might not have otherwise seen! The room and private bathroom were spotless and very comfortable. We felt like family, and were so well cared for! We stayed 3 nights, and would have loved... More

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.
