This place was listed as Bed & Breakfast in Unique Cabins. Nothing unique about the cabins. They really need to get some new bedspreads. It was clean. The breakfast turned out to be a regular continental breakfast like you would get in any motel. If you want waffles you must order the night before. Seating area very limited. Wifi was not the greatest.

Hello:

We are sorry you were not happy with your queen bed cabin. The throw usually on the foot of the bed was being washed . Our breakfast has been very well received by other guests. Sorry it wasn't up to your expectations.
We hope you had a memorable trip to Alaska and may consider visiting Alaska again.

Accommodation is in individual log cabins. Ours had a really cute hunting theme and was very cosy and comfortable. The cabin was very well equipped with everything we could possible need including an umbrella! We arrived as part of a motorcycle group, cold and wet and really appreciated the great shower and efficient heaters. The lady in the shop, Lee, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and even though I wasn't buying anything, was kind enough to discuss anything I was interested in. The owner even provided a fire outside for us to gather round in the evening. It is ideally situated on the Main Street with eating places within easy walking distance and has plenty of parking right at the door.

This is a great place to stay and relax. We enjoyed their hospitality and were very impressed by their friendliness and willingness to be accommodating. They have been there for about 50 years and were very knowledgeable about the area.

This was a wonderful experience after driving for hours and hours without any decent hotels or civilization around. The staff was more than accomodating and friendly, the rooms cozy, clean and cute. I drove from Florida to Alaska staying in several hotels along the way and even the shampoo was of good quality. If I were ever in that area again I would surely go back, however, I doubt I will ever get that chance. I would highly recommend this place for anyone else to stay at and experience.

We apologize for taking so long to write this but doubt if the rating has changed since our visit. Burnt Paw/Cabins Outback, owned by Bill and Nancy Arpino, is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Alaska. Located in Tok, on the Alaska Highway (Alcan) about 90 miles west of the Canadian Border, they have eight cute, very clean cabins and a large gift shop. The cabins are decorated in an Alaska décor and have refrigerators, microwaves, etc, items you would find in a larger b&b/motel/hotel in big cities. They offer a complementary breakfast every morning of waffles, cereal, muffins, etc to their guests.
Bill and Nancy are wonderful, personable hosts. Bill, an l973 Iditarod finisher, is an encyclopedia of information of the area. Bill can tell you almost anything you want to know about Alaska and Nancy runs the gift shop. The gift shop is large and offers everything from clothing to souvenirs, snacks and more. We found their prices to be in line with gifts shops in Anchorage and in some cases better. They will ship any purchases for you. We spent three nights there and if ever visiting Alaska, will do so again.

Have traveled through Tok numerous times and always stay in the Cabins Out Back. The themed cabins are delightful and always neat and clean. Very nice breakfast room and breakfast. Waffles made to order. One of the few places in Tok that is open all year.

In a town with very few accommodations (especially in the shoulder seasons) I found that this was a great place to spend the night on our way to Anchorage. We came in mid April so the town was still mostly shut down. The cabins were very modern and clean, nicely furnished and they even had satellite tv which was nice. The breakfast was good, very laid back and made to order. I recommend to all my seasonal traveler friends on their way up North to stop over at the Burnt Paw.
