Bud and Carol's B & B
Ranked #3 of 10 Girdwood B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 September 2013

This is a purpose built B&B and it really works to perfection. We were two couples travelling together,we each had our own large room with ensuite which was very clean and comfortable with good quality linens. We also had use of a full kitchen with everything we needed to make a meal, so nice not to have to go out looking for somewhere to eat.

Carol had been in early and left us fruit, eggs and fresh bread, we could help ourselves to cereals, yoghurt, milk, tea, coffee and juices. She popped in later to meet us and chat, delightful lady. Some other establishments could take lessons from her, Carol, you should start a B&B school.
What an absolute pleasure it was to stay, we only wish it was for longer.

Spent one night at Bud & Carols in Girdwood, AK during our Alaska vacation (Aug 12-20, 2013). It was very quiet, clean and comfortable. Carol was really nice and she shared some great places to see while we were in Girdwood. Her fresh made bread was incredible. We will definitely stay there again.

The small black bear roaming the streets in the morning was a plus.

I stayed one night and would recommend this B & B. i was able to mail clothing I needed for a wedding prior to my arrival and it was waiting for me on my bed upon arrival. I was having back spasms and Carol allowed an early check in and offered me ice packs. Its clean, tidy and private. The only bear sighting on my weeks vacation was at the B & B, right beside my vehicle. I would come here again.

Girdwood is a peaceful small town just off the Turnagain Arm, surrounded by mountains in a real alpine setting. It makes a welcome change after the hustle and bustle of Anchorage. It is well situated for hiking, a trip up the mountain on the Alyeska tram and for a cruise from Whittier/Portage. Carol and Buds is a delightful B&B - there are two rooms both with all facilities including TV, and a well equipped communal kitchen. Carol even makes fresh bread every day for her guests. Carol is a lovely bubbly lady and spends just enough time chatting to her guests and passing on advice on things to do. Sadly Bud has passed on but Carol has enough energy for three people!
Carol and Buds can be recommended without hesitation.

We stayed at Carol's for 2 nights and would recommend this place. It's clean, new, spacious, nice bathroom and we loved the idea of sharing the kitchen. We hike and need lunches so having a refrigerator is a must. We also cooked our dinners. Carol supplies a breakfast of cereals, eggs, fruit, juice, yogurt and a loaf of fresh bread. I liked that she changed the towels; and such nice fluffy towels. She's great too! We hiked Crow Pass which was our favorite hike.

Where to start? Well first after staying in Alaska for 4 days and no sleep due to conditions of places we were staying we came here. I woke this morning at 6:30am after a wonderful night of sleep. Black out curtains are a big plus during summer in Alaska, thank you. Clean bed. Warm fresh baked bread, hard boiled eggs, cheese, cereal, yogurt, fresh coffee, and bananas make the day even better. The friendliness of our hostess was wonderful. Thanks Carol for the recommendation of eating dinner at Jack Sprat's, the King Salmon, and fresh rolls (like spring rolls) was so lite and delicious. Very close to Whittier, so after taking the Glacier 26 tour (great tour) and being tired it was not a long ride back. Carol thinks of every thing for the room, even having coat hangers (does not sound like a big deal but believe me no other B and B's had the to use, soap, shampoo, dish soap, etc. I would highly recommend this B & B to stay at.

This is a spotless B&B. The owner, Carol, will go out of her way to make you feel welcome. She initiated a much appreciated suggestion for our stay having to do with making reservations for a glacier cruise. The breakfast, including her scrumptious baked bread, perfectly boiled eggs and hot, brewed coffee were ready at 7 in the common area of the B&B area (below her private living area), available for us to have whenever we wanted in the morning. We had the area to ourselves the first night; another couple were in the other bedroom the second. It took us a little by surprise, so perhaps a heads up that we should expect fellow B&Brs would have been nice; however, that's a small incidental compared to the genuine pleasure of staying here and having such a gracious, personable host.
