I stayed one night at Big Bear and found the owner (Carol Ross) to be very friendly, helpful and an excellent cook and the accommodations to be commendable. Carol made me feel welcome and served an excellent breakfast (waffles with several choices of berry toppings fresh from her garden, reindeer sausages, potatoes, etc). There's free wifi and the room was...

This is a very nice B&B. We stayed in the Denali room. It is extremely clean. Removal of shoes before entering helps to keep the place clean so I thought it was worth the effort. The garden in back was sweet. The breakfast was truly delicious. There are a lot of knickknacks so I wouldn't recommend small children. Also, a...

Carol made us very welcome and was a great help with maps etc. The breakfast was excellant - lots of choice and interesting. The rooms were nice but I was surprised to find that the en suite was built into the closet so you had no privacy and no room to move. I think it was about 30 inches square,...

Carol (Ross) owner has B&B service down to a science. My daughter and I are here for our second visit and could not be more pleased. You will not find a cleaner establishment anywhere nor a better breakfast.. Once again Carol outdid herself with quiche's, hash browns, reindeer sausage, hot muffins and a delicious fruit compote. Not only is she...

When we booked our trip, the inkeeper (Carol Ross) told us about the Alaska State Fair in nearby Palmer, something we would have missed on our own, and it was a great experience! Throughout our stay, her knowledge and information helpd make this trip very special! The B&B is beautiful, with a large garden (where she grows some of the...

Traveling with spouse, mother and aunt. Found this to be an adequate stop over for one night. Did not appreciate having to remove shoes before entering house... it is not like the carpet is new or even light colored. Rooms are almost museum like with lots of bric/brac. Seemed cluttered to me but I understand that some may like it....

We spent 2 nights in the Denali room. It was conveniently located on the first floor right off the dining room. There was a comfortable queen bed and a huge sitting area with sofa, chair and television. There was plenty of space to put our suitcases and our other stuff. The bathroom had a large Jacuzzi tub and a separate...

Excellent B&B in Anchorage. Carol and family are the most hospitable hosts, with superb breakfasts provided by Carol and we have adopted Carol's recipe for coffee. The immediate area though not the best presented no problems. The Big Bear with it's garden is an oasis after a day's sightseeing. The second floor provides good accommodation for guests with comfortable bedrooms...

It seems everyone has said it all. Carol and her sister were wonderful hostesses - warm, friendly and accomodating. Her breakfast, as said, fantastic. Her garden & flowers- impressive. The location wsn't really a problem. Upstairs she has 3 rooms and common living room with TV, dvds, books, table and a beverage bar with everything you could possibly think of...
