My husband and I have been visiting Valdez for many years. Usually we camp, but now that we have a baby (7 months old), we decided to stay in a B&B. We couldn't have chosen better! Clean, inexpensive B&Bs with private baths are hard to come by in Valdez, but that's exactly what you get at House on the Rock!
Lorna and Bill Wise and their 3 kids are so friendly and helpful. They were full of suggestions for activities and meals in town, as well as hiking on the outskirts of town. They know Valdez well and ensured that we enjoyed ourselves there, too.
We chose to forgo the continental breakfast and instead used the guest kitchen to make our own breakfasts (and lunches and dinners). Be aware that there is not a stovetop or oven - just a single burner. There are mugs, glasses, plates, cooking and eating utensils, pots, pans, a coffeemaker, coffee, tea, sugar, non-dairy creamer, fridge, sink, toaster oven, towels, dish detergent and hot pads available for guest use. VERY convenient!
The rooms are very simply decorated but as comfortable as could be. Each room has its own bathroom, but be aware that there is just a small shower stall (no tub, so no bathing baby).
We utilized the massage chair in the guest living room often. What a fun feature! It felt great after a long day of walking around this beautiful town.
The Wise family will definitely make your trip to Valdez a full and memorable one. We're telling everyone we know about this clean, comfortable, cozy, convenient B&B. We will most definitely be staying there next time we visit Valdez, our favorite spot in the state!
