“Lovely Room and Charming Hostess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

My husband, two daughters, and I stayed in the enchanted room for two nights. The room was very spacious and upscale with a glass door opening to a quaint porch on the edge of the forest. There is a hot tub attached to this room which is available to use all night, a plus in the land of the midnight sun. The beds were very cozy with plush, modern sheets and comforters. The main house is elegant, yet down to earth, and the common area is quite large.

Connie was very friendly, and she made fabulous breakfasts that had a wide variety of things to suit every taste, including fresh baked bread and gourmet jellies, homemade from exotic berries she picked herself in Alaska. Even after breakfast, there were always homemade cookies or some such thing lying out for guests. She was very informative about the surrounding area and directed us to a nearby wildlife conservation park that turned out to be the highlight of our trip. One of the nicest things about Connie was how nice she was to my daughters, ages six and seven. They loved talking to her, and she clearly adores children. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Downstairs room seems the most private and has exclusive use of the hot tub after 10 pm.

Owner was terribly rude, and unaccomodating. She was constantly negative, and any simple request was grudingly accomplished. Even toilet paper was missing... Brought down the morale of the group on an otherwise stellar trip. Wouldnt stay here again.

WildflowerAlaska, Owner at Glacier View Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, August 23, 2012
In response to Service With A Frown. My two small rooms were resevred that accommodate only 2 persons in each room. Upon there arrival it was announced that there was 5 in their party. All my rooms were booked and no available space for this extra person. We agreed he would sleep on floor in one of the small rooms, I offered to make a bed on the very limited floor space they said no he had been back packing and he would use his sleeping bag. However after I went to bed they moved the furniture in the common area making him a bed using all the extra blanks and pillows from the rooms. The next day I explained to him the common area is used by all guest. He apologized for sleeping in the common area and said he would sleep in the room as agreed. That night they arrived very late after a night out on the town they were very loud waking my neighbors and all of the other guest at the BNB. They had once again moved the furniture and he was going to sleep in the common area. My bath rooms are well stocked although an unexpected guest will diminished allotted supplies.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 evenings in the Enchanted room. The room was gorgeous! Very modern styling, with a nice flat screen TV, large comfortable bed, and a wood-burning stove! We LOVED that touch! The pipe coming out of the stove does go through a large hole that's cut in the wall - so you CAN hear plenty from the room (like breakfast being cooked, people coming & going, etc.). But this wasn't an issue for us, as we just loved the room itself so much. The bathroom is across the hall, and you must walk past the front entrance to get to it. But during our stay we were the only ones using this bathroom so it wasn't a problem for us. There's also a hot tub open to guests - but we didn't use it because I was pregnant at the time.

Connie was very welcoming and very friendly. She shared a lot of stories with us about the different parties, celebrations, etc. that the locals participate in each year. She even shared photos with us, which were fun to see. Her breakfasts were good and definitely left us satisfied each morning.

I'd definitely recommend this B&B and would stay there again if we're lucky enough to make it back to Alaska in the future.

Glacier View was a great place to stay. Extremely clean and comfortable. My daughter and I shared the king room on first floor. It was spacious, with large tv, DVD player, couch, wood fired stove. Bathroom was across hallway rather than connected directly to room.

Due to stove's chimney, there was an opening onto the rest of the house that let in a lot of noise so it was hard to sleep once Connie started breakfast prep at 6 ish. And Breakfast was at 7:30 each day.

I am an early riser but with the Alaska time change, it would have been nice to get a later start.

Still, I would stay here again. Much better than hotel in Anchorage.

Best B&B that we had until now. Clean, great breakfast and the B&B is much better then it shows online. And online you can see that it is a fantastic B&B. Simply SUPER. Connie is very very kind. No remarks at all. We liked her a lot.
Simply a must when you are in Girdwood
