I went to Alaska for a wilderness backpacking trip and I had to stay in Anchorage for two nights. The was Bed and Breakfast was recommended by the National Outdoor Leadership School, the most renowned outdoor education school in U.S.A.
In my flight Seattle-Anchorage I lost my luggage and I was extremely worried as thre were a lot of neccessary gear for my trip;I arrived in the B and B 4 a.m. in the morning but still, Sherry was waiting for me. She was extremely kind and offered her phone for me to make an international call to my parents and to the insurance company.
On the following day Sherry made me a FANTASTIC breakfast that included Alaskan delicacies such as fresh wild salmon and strawberries. She lend me her bike which allowed me to ride the Coastal Trail, just next to their house. The ride was great mainly for the scenic views and for a moose that I spotted.
Back in the hotel, her husband Derek invited me to go for their spainel's training for grouse hunting. It was incredible! Derek is an experienced outdoorsman and he knows a lot about Alaska landscape and wildlife. He also was remarkably kind for picking up my luggage in the airport (at 3 AM in the morning!!).
I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for anyone who wants a friendly and genuine Alaskan place to stay in Anchorage. Oh and by the way, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was roomy and clean.
