I stayed one night in "The Inn" on a last minute reservation and was pleasantly surprised. I spend half the year working in Valdez and frequently need to be in Anchorage or travel through the area. The accommodations around Anchorage are very high priced. I have also stayed in

Hi, thank you for sharing a review with future travelers. I'm so glad you "found us" first on the internet, then in person! Thanks for choosing our place for this leg of your vacation. If you liked it in April, you've got to see it in the summer!! You visited at what Alaskans think is the worst time of the year--"break up," when it's snowy/muddy and nothing is growing yet. You wouldn't believe how lush and green it will all look in just another couple months, when all my wildflowers and flower baskets are going nuts in the 23 hours of sunlight with our midnight sun. Please do come see us again! --Karen

The B&B is a little different from others I've stayed in, but nice. They only do a traditional breakfast during tourist season, but do deliver a reasonable cold meal to your cottage/room in the off season. I had a cottage, which was nice and very comfy. The best thing

The view towards Palmer.
We stayed in the 'lodge' area where it was more like a hotel. It was a private room and bath. It was very nice, clean, roomy and the breakfast was awesome. Stay here, really nice.

Hi dk, As far in advance as you can! What time frame are you thinking of staying here? In January or this winter? Or are you looking at this summer? I can tell you that June and July are booking up really fast at this point. If you give me the dates you're thinking about, I can tell you how much we are booked up and how long you could have before the remaining ones get taken, from my 13 years experience of how fast we book up. Thanks, Karen
