The rooms here are cozy and homelike. Quilts drape the oversized beds, and artwork that matches the unexplored wilderness hangs on the walls. The rooms are themed and beautifully decorated. Some are pure Alaska rooms, some have Southwestern decor, some are simple and minimal, and so on. Some rooms have one bed, while others have three.
The dining here is amazing home-cooking—I’ve never had home-cooking this good. Meals are all two to four courses. The meals range from good Deep South cooking to traditional American cooking with a pure Alaska twist. The owner of the B&B, who lives on the top floor, cooks and serves all the meals.
There are nine rooms here and a large, very inviting lounge with a fireplace and satellite TV. Windows decorate the walls with landscapes painted across them. There is also an outside Jacuzzi. The first thing you will notice when you walk in the door is the movie collection, which could easily put a movie rental place to shame. They also offer retreats and getaway packages.
There is so much to do around Denali, and the owners will help you with all your planning. You can river-raft, kayak, rent mountain bikes, take guided tours, and much more.
