We stayed here for one night in July. Carol is very friendly and was full of tips and hints (and coupons!) for activities in the area. She made sourdough waffles for breakfast with all sorts of toppings, which were amazing -- the best breakfast in Alaska! We stayed in the "Glacier room," which is kind of cramped and has a...

My husband and I stayed at Big Bear for 4 nights while visiting Anchorage in July. The neighborhood is a bit iffy around the B & B, and had us concerned when we first drove up, but Carol's home is like an oasis. I can't say enough about what a wonderful hostess she is. We stayed in the Glacier Room,...

We stayed at Big Bear in the Toklat room for 1 night in May. We landed at anchorage around 8 pm, rented a car, and drove to the BnB. The drive was abt 7 miles, and was pretty easy to find. The area didnt seem very nice at first, but the BnB was awesome. Considering it was our stop-over for...

This was our first stop after we arrived in Alaska. Carol was great. She is a wealth of information and was very helpful in helping us plan our day. She even got up early to take us to the train station with a breakfast of salmon Quiche all packaged and ready to go. She has her own garden in her...

We stayed one night at the Big Bear (in the Glacier Room), and were very charmed by the Owner, decor, and genuine Alaskan hospitality! When we got there, Carol was in themidst of canning 50+ lbs of fresh Kenai River salmon -- an experience in itself to observe! Carol was very helpful when we needed to find a place to...

If anyone has ever traveled to Alaska, you know that it can be quite the expensive venture! If you're a B&B traveler like us, you won't find a better deal than Big Bear in Anchorage!! We ended up getting there a day earlier and unfortunately, Big Bear was already booked that night so we ended up staying in a nearby...

Our stay at Big Bear at the beginning of June got our Alaska trip off to a wonderful start. Our rooms were very nice -- comfy beds, antique furniture and Alaskan decor. The place is like living in a mini-museum! The meals were outstanding; Carol, your hostess, is a former home ec teacher. (She taught me how to make her...

This property is out of town but bery close to lovely restaurants. Th einnkeeper is more than willing to accommodate early departures with a SPECTACULAR breakfast and a ride to the train station. We could not have been happier unless our trip included more nights at this lovely B&B. The common areas are filled with lovely Alaskan art objects on...
