We stayed here with another couple for 4 days to explore Anchorage before heading off to Denali. Located slightly out of town but only a few minutes from a regular bus route if you do not have a car. Also close to a bike trail into town as we hired bikes for a couple days. Carol, our host is a... More

We stayed there for two nights. A big reason for chosing this place was that it should be a fragrance free environment since my husband is allergic. To our disappointment it wasn't! The bathroom there smelt more of perfume than any other bathroom on our trip! That gave my husband headache. The room was OK but it was a bit... More

Carol is the best innkeeper. She stayed up late to let us in her home when our flight was delayed. The room and bed we had was very comfortable. Breakfast was the highlight of our stay. Carol is a fabulous cook and historical story teller.The house if full of bears and history. Great location for day trips around Anchorage.

This was our 5th trip to Alaska. And our first "in season" trip. This B n B beat the heck out of motel prices with a full Alaskan breakfast, to boot. We stayed 2 nights then came back for a third. Food was fantastic, stories interesting. Ask Carol about her Dad's moose/bear hunt. Great!! Carol is very knowledgeable on a... More

We stayed here our first 3 nights in Alaska. The hostess is a world class cook with immense local knowledge on everything from wildflowers to local attractions to the best variety of local potatoes. While we had a lot more scheduled in Alaska than just Anchorage, we were reluctant to leave. The open area on the 2nd floor has some... More

Yea, the neighborhood may or may not be great but we liked this place a lot. I had reserved the Denali room because my wife cannot do stair easily and we were surprised to find what amounted to a two room suite complete with a jetted tub, shower and even a bidet. This place is full of photos and memorabilia... More

The minute you walk in the door there is bear skins, bones, antlers and everything Alaska!! We stayed in the Denali room I loved the bed, the screen and the shower but the toilet in the cupboard was interesting (although have stayed in a hotel where it was in the shower!!) our room was very noisy, and at 2:30am some...

We stayed in the Denali room. There is a lot of stuff...everywhere but that didn't bother us because we came to Alaska for the scenery and wildlife, not the B&B. Frankly, if you use B&B's for more than sleeping and having breakfast, you'd probably be happier at an all-inclusive resort or hotel- regardless of the B&B in question. Breakfast was... More
