It can be challenging to find a relatively affordable place to stay in Anchorage during mid-June, so I was happy to stumble upon this B&B to spend a few days sightseeing before a business conference. I had some trepidations about booking a room with a...More

Super location except for the noise. Stayed in room #10. There was no A/C, which is needed in Anchorage these days unfortunately. This would not be such a big problem except for the noisy location, so no open window. There is a train track near...More
