Nancy Wilson is a true Alaskan with the "can do" attitude, gruff on the outside with a gentle soul. We stayed in a lovely cabin that Nancy built herself, which can accommodate 8 people although there were just two of us. The cabin was very comfortable with TV, kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and hot plate. Breakfast foods were provided for us to prepare ourselves. The price was an exceptional value. Nancy provided us with information about things to do and visited with us at length.

Nancy was cranky and rude to us from the second we arrived, treating us like children, even though we were a group of 6 adults over 40 and 2 kids. Prohibited my brother's family from taking the basement rooms because of her 'Valuable antiques,' even though that set up was best suited to the larger family, as it had 2 bedrooms and a private bathroom. However, that area had no tv; but it did have junk stuffed into stairwells, closets, and every corner, so there was no place to put down our luggage but on the beds, because god forbid we should touch her antiques!

No breakfast included; just light provisions to make yourself--milk that had passed its sell-by date, a few cereals, muffins and juice. She also provided eggs, but no cookware/stove. She had directions, though, for microwaving them! For her to cook breakfast was $5 extra per person; we would have taken her up on it, but she acted so put out, we worried she'd spit in our omelets! We also had to do our own dishes.

Cheap value for Alaska ($35/person/day) but overall a fairly sour experience.

Oh, and bring the mosquito repellent--they're everywhere at her place.

On our honeymoon, we decided last minute we wanted to break up our drive from Denali to Anchorage. We called around, and Sunshine Lake had great prices. (it was not on a lake though). We ended up in a private cabin that had a kitchen. The fridge had breakfast foods in it, and we made our own eggs and toast the next morning.

The innkeeper is very friendly. This place would be best for large groups, but it was a great deal for the price!
