It was around 9 pm and we were at the Russian River all day looking for bears. Based on a recommendation, we came here hoping for a room for the night. They had 2 left - and it was very clean, reasonably priced, and what a fantastic place! George, one of the owners, was very friendly. After we checked into our room, he said other tenants were in the back of the B&B hanging out by a campfire. We went back there and found many people sitting around a firepit making smores - huge marshmellows. George shared his experiences while in Alaska - what a treat. There were people here from all over the world - mostly fishing and enjoying the outdoors.We shared stories of our day and really enjoyed ourselves. It was the perfect ending to our wonderful trip. If I had a B&B, this is the type of place I would have myself - welcoming, clean, beautiful property.
The beds were clean and comfortable. The shower/bathroom was clean and the showers were hot. They had a free breakfast with lots of choices. I sat on the patio with many others enjoying multiple cups of coffee and baked goods. They had flowers planted in pots, and some fun picture taking opportunities around the property. It was a truly beautiful place.
Across the street was the Kenai River (walking distance). If you go to Coopers Landing, don't go anywhere else - go here, and also eat at Gwin's down the street. If you drive to go back to Seward or Anchorage, there is a sign for Princess Lodge on the left after you pass the post office. The Lodge is up on a hill. There is an amazing view from that deck - make sure you stop by there to take pictures of the Kenai River.
