We were in Alaska for 3 weeks and traveled 1800 miles, we stayed at many B&Bs most were very nice and as advertised and expected. This was our experience at the Bay Avenue Bed and Breakfast.
When we pulled in the driveway there was no directions to locate the office or where to check in, we parked and went to knock on the only house door we saw, we then waited and waited. We finally had to phone to reach someone to greet us; she said come to other side of the house to meet her, although there was no door in sight from driving in.
She was nice but seemed a little too impersonal and indifferent; she took us upstairs (not asking us to bring our luggage) straight to our room which was very clean but after no hello or how you, then left about as fast. The “Bay View Room” was in the main house and upstairs with a one narrow window view of the Kachemak Bay, they did not mention in their description of "spectacular views" their place is on the wrong side of the spit where the mud flats are when the tides out, virtually no waves and the lack of soundproofing in our building (hearing people in and out)
I would have liked to have walked over and at least try to look off the Bluff toward the flats but was never invited to look around, and felt like was imposing to walk past the side of their living room windows to get there.
They also mentioned or what caught my eye in their internet ad, was this wonderful looking kitchen and mention of buffet and hot food in the same sentence in a large room with many picture windows with distant views of the spit, tide in of course over the mud flats, we intern never experienced that offering and had a little cold cereal and some muffins in a small but again very clean little kitchen type area just outside of our upstairs room.
We were disappointed with this place and do not recommend it, this is the first review of any type I have ever left; my wife and I are very easy to please people and can normally over look about anything but not here, sorry not from what we expected from their advertising.
