“Wild Roses -- homey and yummy”
Reviewed September 4, 2006

We recently returned from Alaska where we enjoyed a very pleasant 4 night stay at Wild Roses by the Sea. The weather was dreary but Rose was always sunny, beginning each morning with an extravagant and delicious breakfast. Our family -- 2 adults and 2 boys, 13 & 17 -- stayed in the downstairs suite, which was spacious and well appointed, with a separate bedroom, kitchen and sofabed in the living room. Rose made us feel so comfortable and welcome, it was a true pleasure staying with her.

  • Liked — Friendliness, delicious breakfast, location/views
  • Disliked — bad weather -- fault of Mother Nature, of course

A Rose is a Rose is a Rose! Rose Fong runs a wonderful B&B in Valdez, AK, terminal point of the Alaskan oil pipeline. While we had to cut short our visit to this sleepy fishing village, our brief experience staying at WIld Roses By The Sea B&B Retreat earned very high marks. I strongly recommend it over other possible accomodations. The location was, unlike some other B&Bs, quiet and breathtaking with a great overlook of Prince William Sound. Rose Fong had a couch positioned with binoculars to help scan for dolphins and whales as we watched the ships enter the harbor. The ambience was fabulous with an eclectic Asian flavor. The breakfast was the best that we experienced while in Alaska with a wide assortment of food. The home-made quiche-like egg pie should be on the Food Channel. There was also fruit with yogurt, a variety of cereals, anything you wanted as a beverage, delicious breads... the day that we were there the food was REALLY good. Rose had an assortment of articles, local literature and recommendations to help us with our vacation. If you are going to Valdez to experience the town, to do hiking or kayaking, or to fish for halibut, this B&B is an excellent choice.

We stayed at the Wild Roses B & B downstairs apt. which has a living room and and bedroom, kitchen, and private bath. It was astounding! Rose is your hostess and she decorates simply yet very peaceful. Nothing can compare with the beauty of Valdez and her place offers such gorgeous views. I would highly recommend staying here. Some people call their breakfast gourmet....Rose truly does make a gourmet breakfast.

A Wild Rose B&B is perched on a hillside in the Blueberry Hill Estates overlooking a stream that runs into Prince William Sound. The view of the mountains, sound and wildflowers is incredible. It is extremely quiet and relaxing.

The room was a lovely pale green with asian accents; with blinds on screened windows that open to catch the ocean breeze. We had a comfortable queen sized bed; the bathroom was private but was across the hall. We were given lovely thick robes and slippers to use during our stay.

Guests have the use of the living room where soft jazz played and you could sit on the couch and overlook the ocean. Many books and maps of the area are available and Rose can recommend many hikes etc.

The full breakfast included coffee/teas; a wonderful blueberry coffeecake (blueberries picked by owner Rose the previous evening); delicious egg quiche along with smoked salmon spread and toasted bagels and/or toast.
What a feast. That and wonderful conversation with the other guests from England made for a truly enjoyable experience.
