A Rose is a Rose is a Rose! Rose Fong runs a wonderful B&B in Valdez, AK, terminal point of the Alaskan oil pipeline. While we had to cut short our visit to this sleepy fishing village, our brief experience staying at WIld Roses By The Sea B&B Retreat earned very high marks. I strongly recommend it over other possible accomodations. The location was, unlike some other B&Bs, quiet and breathtaking with a great overlook of Prince William Sound. Rose Fong had a couch positioned with binoculars to help scan for dolphins and whales as we watched the ships enter the harbor. The ambience was fabulous with an eclectic Asian flavor. The breakfast was the best that we experienced while in Alaska with a wide assortment of food. The home-made quiche-like egg pie should be on the Food Channel. There was also fruit with yogurt, a variety of cereals, anything you wanted as a beverage, delicious breads... the day that we were there the food was REALLY good. Rose had an assortment of articles, local literature and recommendations to help us with our vacation. If you are going to Valdez to experience the town, to do hiking or kayaking, or to fish for halibut, this B&B is an excellent choice.
