We were looking for a place to stop over in the Palmer/Wasilla area for one night on our way to Seward. I'm so glad that I looked into bed and breakfasts in the area. The price was so much more reasonable than the hotels and had much better reviews.
I spoke with the owner when setting up the reservation and she was very friendly and helpful. I made a reservation for a room with a queen bed and a futon for my husband and two tween age kids (I was staying overnight at the state fairgrounds for a conference). When my husband arrived, she told him that she had a space available that she thought would be more comfortable for them, so she moved them to a lower level where there was a room with a queen bed for my husband and then the cute little Knick's Nook for the kids. There was also a large and cozy sitting area and a bathroom. They slept very comfortably and were happy with the stay.
I actually stopped in before checkout and was able to see the home. It was very nice with an interesting collection of Alaskan decor.
The only thing that was different from what you would expect was how she handles breakfast. Rather than serve a common breakfast in the morning, cold cereal, pastries, etc. are provided in the room and guests eat at their leisure. It was a bit disappointing, but overall did not detract from our satisfaction. It was still a great place to stay at a reasonable price and we would return if we stay in that area again.
