We stayed at Walkabout in May and we're very pleased with the great help Walkabout provided us with. We had a great bed and a delicious home-cooked breakfast every morning. And Terry was kind enough to drop us off at the train station at 6.15 am! Well worth your money!

We had a very enjoyable two night stay at Walkabout. The room was fine, the breakfasts were excellent, and our hosts were friendly and helpful. These were our first two nights in Alaska and around the breakfast table we got a lot of useful travel info from our hosts and the other guests. The Walkabout gets a strong recommendation from me

The Walkabout Town B&B is run by the Stimsons. Sandy and Terry founded it some twenty years ago to accomodate globetrotters like themselves. Now their son Scott runs it in a very professional manner when he spends the summer in Anchorage.
I had the "Australian Room" which would easily sleep three people all to myself with a private bath. Everything was very tidy. Breakfast is held in a winter-garden. It's not a fancy neighborhood but it's an easy 10 to 15 mins walk to downtown Anchorage or one can take the bus. I could leave my bag while I was away on a day trip (They even gave me a lunch-bag). Late arrival is also no problem since they leave a personal message and your key.

What a wonderful review! Thank you for your kind description of our B&B. It is necessary to clarify that we provide breakfast bags for guests departing too early in the morning to eat our scrumptious cooked breakfast. We do not provide lunch bags.

We stayed 2 nights at the Walkabout - the hosts were great, breakfast was delicious, and they even allowed us to store a salmon we caught in their freezer for 3 days while we traveled to Denali and back! Would definitely recommend.

I booked a three-day stay at Walkabout B&B. Scott was outstanding in understanding and accommodating my "special needs" when making the reservation. A medical condition required me to cancel our trip. Scott refunded our deposit the same day I notified him of the cancellation. He invited us to consider them if and when we rebook our trip. We will!

Room Tip: Discuss your special needs, if any, with Scott -- even by email.

We stayed here our first night in Alaska. The hosts were wonderful, and gave us lots of information to get us started. The neighborhood is not very picturesque, but it is quiet. We had a private bath with a double shower. Delicious breakfast! A wonderful start to a wonderful trip!

By far this is best experience I had ever for a one day stay. So warm feelings that it felt like home even though I was thousands of miles away from home. I still remember the lovely family and heart warming welcome. So friendly and the best breakfast with love. IF I ever get a chance I will not choose another place. It was the most beautiful place. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to have the warmest feeling and a peaceful stay.
