Yea, the neighborhood may or may not be great but we liked this place a lot. I had reserved the Denali room because my wife cannot do stair easily and we were surprised to find what amounted to a two room suite complete with a jetted tub, shower and even a bidet. This place is full of photos and memorabilia as well as beautiful old furniture. To some maybe it would be cluttered but we enjoyed Carol's stories that went along with her trophies. We had the place to ourselves so noise was not an issue, had a wonderful breakfast the next morning and got another story about one of her sourdough starters. We enjoyed ourselves and the house and her beautiful gardens!

Room Tip: If you need to avoid stairs the Denali Room is on the main floor. As a side benefit it is huge with...

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.
