John was an excellent host for our 4 days in Anchorage. John is a wealth of information from what to do, where to go, and where to eat. As a fisherman, he also knows where to fish and what to catch. A Loon's Nest is in a wonderful location, about $16 taxi ride from the airport and on the people... More

A Loons Nest was a nice place to stay that is run by a long time married couple. They were very accommodating and helpful to what we needed for breakfast and information about Alaska. I hope to stay with them again in the future.

We chose A Loon's Nest for a couple reasons. The location was not too far from the airport (5-6 mi), and since our flight didn't arrive til 8:30pm we wanted to be able to get there in a reasonable amount of time. John welcomed us, showed us to our room and when we asked about a restaurant, gave us a... More

The host is an extremely easygoing kind man. He let us keep our luggage in his house past checkout to make it easier for our travel needs. He replaced our towels everyday. The room was well equipped with bathrobes as well as enough towels. The place was clean and comfortable. The sitting area has a gorgeous view and very comfortable... More

A Loon's Nest is a great place to stay. Summer hotel pricing in Anchorage is expensive, and the Nest was consistently lower than almost every place we looked. As a Bed & Breakfast, which is also inspected and approved by the Anchorage Bed & Breakfast Association, the Nest has a much more personable vibe than a hotel. We stayed in... More

The B&B is in a nice location and priced decently. John is a good host. The room was well kept and spacious. The breakfast was cereals and tea/coffee. The house is located close to the ocean trail, which is a plus.

We chose a Loon's Nest because of the owner being a retired educator. In fact, other guests turned out to be retired educators, too, so conversation was easy and we had a lot in common. Bed was comfortable, a fan was available during the hot spell, a door directly into the garden was convenient. There was a nice writing space... More

This is a nice little bed and breakfast in the middle of a neighborhood. There are two rooms and both face the backyard and are very quiet and comfortable. There are some things that needed a little repair but nothing drastic. Overall not a bad place to stay in Anchorage.

My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon. Jon was a gracious host. Helpful as we planned our next stop in Alaska and very friendly. There were other couples staying there, and they were also friendly. While the bathroom was not attached to our bedroom, it was very close and no one bothered us while we were there. The... More
