“A Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Stopped at Wrangell for Annan Bear tour, Becky was a great hostess, always greeting you enthusiastically and providing great breakfasts.
Conveniently located in town (as are most things, not the biggest town), it is a good place to stay.
The only minor comment is the bed was a bit too firm for us.

I just spent a very enjoyable 3 nights with what felt like my new family in Wrangell. Becky sent her grandson over to pick me up at the ferry terminal even though it's just a few blocks. It was dark and pouring rain, so that was a big help. My room had a shared bath, but since I was the only guest it was no problem at all. I had a comfortable bed, and a choice of two living areas to relax in. The house is an easy walk to everything. The breakfasts were huge and delicious- no lunches needed!
I recommend the museum in town, the Totem Park, the walk up Mt. Dewey and Petroglyph Beach for in town excursions, and Anan is a must see for bears. I went with Alaska Vistas, but Becky's son Scott is a guide for Alaska Waters, so you might try them too. I loved Wrangell!!

Stayed here for 5 days and had a terrific time in Wrangell and the Inn was top notch. Aside from the very nice room and bathroom, the fantastic deck and porch and general inside sitting area, from the 5 different scrumptious breakfasts, Becky and her husband Gordon are two really wonderful and decent human beings. We felt so welcome here and the advice and tips about Wrangell were extremely helpful. We have stayed in Bed and Breakfasts for many, many years and without a doubt this one is on our top 10 list. Thank you Becky and Gordon!!!

As a family of 3 we had a wonderful trip to Wrangell and enjoyed Rooney's Roost. Becky picked us up at the airport and let us in our room early in the day. Fresh cookies everyday. It was an easy walk to anything in town, as well as the beach, and Mount Dewy trail. The breakfast was wonderful. Becky gave us a late check out and returned us to the airport.

We stayed with the Rooneys during our recent visit to Wrangell and had a wonderful time. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean and the breakfasts were great. What else could we have asked for? And I forgot to mention that the hosts were friendly and delicious cookies were available at all times. What a pleasant place to stay for a very reasonable cost!

Room Tip: We requested a room with a private bath.

We stayed 2 nights in the Sunshine Room which has it's own ensuite facilities. Room was clean and tidy and well presented. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast each day was delicious. Location is great and an easy walk from the ferry. Becky was a perfect host and dropped us back to the ferry after our stay. For those interested in bear watching the AnAn Bear Tour is well worth while depending on the season. Highly recommended B&B.

My wife and I stayed here for one night.
The owner was pleasant and friendly and the home is nicely appointed.
The bed in our room was incredibly high which we found really unusual and although comfortable it couldn’t be considered user friendly or convenient.
Some older people or someone with a disability would be likely to have difficulty getting in and out.
Breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about.

Room Tip: Enquire about bed height.
