“Welcoming and comfortable - Loved every minute!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2011

This B&B is close to one of the best hiking spots in Anchorage (Flat Top Mt.) and though a little further out from the city proper, was totally worth the drive! Breakfasts were amazingly wonderful, and our hosts were full of information about where to go and what to see - the best places to eat, etc. We started and ended our trip at this B&B and loved it both times!

Room Tip: Book early!

Highland Glen B&B is located a little outside of Anchorage. It is worth the extra way, if you have a rental car or a car of your own. Located at the hills above Anchorage, the lodge has several rooms, a large garden with garden-house and grill equipment, hot tub etc. We stayed our first night and our two last nights in Alaska at this castle.

The B&B is furnished in genuine Scottish style. Rooms were cozy, spacious and clean. Beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood was very quiet. The table for breakfast was dignifiedly and tastefully covered with finest china and much more. Breakfasts were excellent and delicious.

Cliff and Sheila were perfect hosts, always courteous an accommodative.

Highland Glen Lodge B&B was our very best and most dignified accommodation during our voyage through Alaska and Yukon. We would warmly recommend this lodge.

We used Highland Glen as our "base," staying there several different nights during our trip to Alaska. The owners are among the nicest people we've met, and they were gracious hosts. The breakfasts were delicious. Our rooms were very comfortable and the beds even more so. There are lots of great ammenities including a common room with large t.v. and a Wii, lots of DVD movies, refrigerators in the rooms, a hot tub, and a sauna in our room, which the owner gladly turned on for us at our request. The wifi was convenient. They are close to the zoo and views overlooking all of Anchorage (Flat Top), and the highway is easily accessible from there. We ended up changing our reservations several times before the trip, and they were extremely accommodating. The whole experience was delightful and we would stay there again in a heartbeat!

The house was just lovely and decorated with many English touches throughout including the china you have breakfast on to the porcelin figurines in the dining and living room areas. Our room had a DVD player and after a long day sightseeing we watched movies as they have a nice DVD library. Breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, sconces, Irish Bread plus waffles and eggs or omelets loaded with diced peppers, mushrooms and ham. Cliff, our host , is an excellent cook and the waffles had whip cream and an assortment of berries on top. He rotates the menu between waffles and omelets. The grounds are well maintained and the day before we arrived a local moose gave birth and was in his yard with her new twins which some of the guests got to see. Wish we had seen this exciting event of a new mother with her young, but we missed it .

This is a very comfortable B&B in an ideal location for exploring the south. The breakfast is excellent and the owners / hosts make effort effort to ensure that you have a great stay.

We stayed for our first anniversary. Our first B & B! Great beautiful place to get away from the world! You step into a castle. The owners are as lovely as can be! Surprise yummy homemade breakfast to the max! A well over done lovely home away from home! I am planning to return with my husband for my 30th birthday getaway! I am so excited! You must appreciate being treated like royalty to enjoy the royal treatment!
Thank you Highland Glen Lodge!!!
