This is a wonderful place to stay for its delicious breakfasts (served at a beautifully set table), great location and is an exceptional bargain price-wise. Ann is giving of her knowledge of the area. She has a lot on her plate with the time involved to service everyone, as well as a grandson, but handles it all. In case she's... More

Stayed two nights after a cruise and found it an excellent choice. As said, Ann is very informative, giving us better advice on hiking and restaurants than any guide books. Stayed in upstairs, spacious room, and took advantage of downstairs kitchen for leftovers instead of mediocre restaurant on second night. The place is close enough to walk to downtown, but... More

If you want to get a local's perspective and immerse yourself in the real Sitka, this is the place for you. Ann and her husband have a small, clean home that is packed with knick-knacks, hunting trophies, and beachcomber's bounty. Ann is an interesting, salty, friendly, and appealingly feisty hostess. One minute she's fixing you delicious buckwheat and pecan pancakes,... More

Upon arrival, it can be somewhat confusing where to enter. There’s a front door plus a deck at the end of the house that has 2 entrances off it. Use the deck and knock on the door closest to the back. Like other B&Bs in Alaska, there is a no shoes policy, with a rack just inside the back door... More

If you do not stay at Ann's Gavin Hill you are missing it! The fantastic breakfasts (blueberry pancakes, eggs Benedict, etc ALL excellently prepared), terrific advice on where to go and how, and the stories of Sitka that only someone who has lived there for a long time can fill you in on. The locations is excellent and easy to... More

It was very hard to find reasonably priced accommodation in Sitka and we were more than happy with Ann. She was a lovely hostess with a very clean and comfortable home. I think the criticism of her wanting guests to take off shoes or using saucers under cups is totally unwarranted - who wants muddy carpets and stained furniture tops.... More

I stayed at Ann's for four nights with a friend. While I chose to stay here because of the prices, Ann was a fantastic hostess and is the reason for this five-star review. She was quick to recommend excellent things to see and do, and was incredibly generous to us when we participated in a midnight road race on the... More

Lovely home, gracious hostess, convenient location. Delicious homemade breakfast. Couldn't have been any better. Loved it. Highly recommend. Hot tub on the deck for relaxing. Clean. Very spacious and well cared for home.

Ann's was a good value & the Ann was a wonderful hostess. She really went out of her way to make our stay great and all of suggestions were right on. The breakfast was very good. I would also suggest fortress of bears.

Accommodations anywhere in Alaska in the summer are pricey, but the value you get for your dollar is maximized at this B&B. Yes, there are some quirks as mentioned by others (but honestly, it's just rude in Alaska to NOT remove your muddy shoes), but as others have also mentioned, the food is excellent and plentiful. Perhaps a better description... More
