The minute you walk in the door there is bear skins, bones, antlers and everything Alaska!! We stayed in the Denali room I loved the bed, the screen and the shower but the toilet in the cupboard was interesting (although have stayed in a hotel where it was in the shower!!) our room was very noisy, and at 2:30am some new guests arrived and sounded like a herd of elephants above us not reall happy about that! We had arranged with Carol to have our breakfast at 7am but when we came out the table was full of other guests and so we didn't get fed until 8 or 8:30 the food was good though. I would stay here again. The neighbourhood is not so great but we felt safe in this little oasis. The whole family were very friendly

We stayed in the Denali room. There is a lot of stuff...everywhere but that didn't bother us because we came to Alaska for the scenery and wildlife, not the B&B. Frankly, if you use B&B's for more than sleeping and having breakfast, you'd probably be happier at an all-inclusive resort or hotel- regardless of the B&B in question. Breakfast was great; most toppings and syrups for the waffles were either homemade or organic or both. Breakfast is also served around your schedule, so if you need an early breakfast, let Carol know the night before. If you're accustomed to only feeling safe in well-manicured subdivisions, then this probably isn't the place for you, however we never once felt that our safety was compromised. My only complaint is the mattresses; they were so soft it almost felt like we were sleeping on a sponge.

Older B&B stuffed with all things Alaska to the point of being junky. Hostess was very helpful and breakfast was very good though don't know how she had room to cook in the kitchen. The bathroom in a closet did not work well for us.

We were not impressed whatsoever with this B & B. It's located in a very run down and bad neighborhood. It was filled with clutter throughout the residence... I agree 100% with Danielle055 I felt claustrophobic... The breakfast was just ok.. We stayed in the Denalli Room which is right next to the dining room/kitchen. We could hear every noise.. every conversation.. So much for sleeping in..in the morning... On our 2 week tour of Southcentral AK, staying at several B & B's, this was the worst by far. I would not recommend this place whatsoever!!!

This is a quiet, older B&B close to downtown. If you are looking for modern rooms and amenities, you may want to give this one a miss, but it was a fabulous experience for us. Carol was very helpful in several ways, including coming up with a couple of ways to entertain the children. The garden in the back was a little run down, but very pretty, and the children played in it for several hours all told, and I spent a couple of hours out there myself. There is an excellent sitting room for guests upstairs with substantial resources for visitors to Alaska. Carol herself is a virtual walking encyclopedia for Alaska visitors. Due to being a converted home, there are some awkward bits in the rooms, including at least one really tiny restroom upstairs, and light switches in odd places and such. The downstairs room can be a bit noisy since it is right next to the dining room and a television set. The breakfasts really sets this place apart. We had three breakfasts, and they were completely different. One breakfasts had multiple fruits in it, all picked and processed by Carol. She seemed to know the life history of every ingredient in every meal. I am hard pressed to think of any time I have had such flavorful breakfasts. It was truly an exceptional experience.

Room Tip: If you don't need the bigger room (no kids) stay upstairs. Some of the bathrooms upstairs are very small.
