This is as close as I can imagine to witnessing the pioneering spirit of Alaska. Janish and Ela have built a family and a home here with their own hands and ingenuity. Ela, and especially, Janish have stories to tell, and they don't need much urging to tell them.
The B&B is a cozy wood building made by Jan from trees on his property. Our room, the only one with a private bath, was spacious and comfortable. The public area had a nice fireplace which kept the whole house warm. The family lives nearby on the property.
The hot breakfasts were generous and always included items homemade by Jan and Ela with local ingredients such as blueberries or spruce buds. The optional dinners at the shared table were excellent and featured local fish which Jan cooked in the oven on a wooden board which he designed and made.
