Alaska Ocean View Bed & Breakfast Inn
Ranked #10 of 19 Sitka B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 July 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sitka and this B&B at the end of May 2011. Alaska Oceanview is located in a residential neighborhood between the AMHS ferry dock and the downtown area and a short cab ride to the airport. Carole Denkinger, the owner, works hard to make sure guests' individual preferences are met.

We stayed in the Forget-Me-Not room, the smallest of the three rooms, with a very comfortable queen-size bed, flat screen cable TV with VCR, Bose radio, free WIFI, small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, terry robes, slippers, and direct access to the outdoor hot tub. The large, ensuite bathroom had a tub with shower. Carole stocks the bath with toiletries and large, fluffy towels.

On the main floor there is a large living room and breakfast area with a deck, a lending library of VCR tapes and tons of travel books Internet access for guests without their own computer is free.

There were always snacks and freshly baked cookies around for guests to munch on. Breakfasts were generous with a variety of cold cereals, pastries and a different hot dish each day. Again, guests' individual dietary preferences are taken into account.

The house is filled with interesting art, knick-knacks and many books about Alaska. Carole will arrange cabs, tours, fishing trips, suggest restaurants etc. on request. We had her arrange transportation from the ferry terminal and to the airport for us.

We walked back and forth the downtown area several times but a cab ride would not be very expensive for those who don't wish to walk. There is a large supermarket a short distance away.

For travelers who enjoy B&B's, Alaska Oceanview is a comfortable place to stay in Sitka. By the way, is customary in Alaska to leave shoes, boots at the door and wear slippers or socks in the house. There's a bench inside the front hall where guests can remove their shoes and a basket full of slippers for guest use.

Room Tip: Ask Carole for a detailed description of the rooms.

We took a shuttle bus from the ferry terminal to this excellent B&B and bought a $24 return ticket for the two of us or $8 each one way. Our hosts Carole and Bill were very welcoming. Bill puts on an excellent and full breakfast with the other guests joining in a very social time with views from the breakfast room over the bay.
There is a public bus which runs past the B&B and goes out to the ferry terminal about 5 miles away then back into downtown Sitka. It is an easy approx. 15 minute walk into the town. The bus driver was terrific and contacted the driver on another route and we had a free transfer onto the bus to the Raptor Centre then a walk from there across to the totem pole park and back into town along the waterfront.

We had a huge room with a bathroom nearly as big! It came with everything, including a wonderful view of the ocean. Easy to find, with a very warm welcome. They accommodated a special diet (coeliac) and we got a brilliant summary of everything to see and do in Sitka. Breakfasts were generous -- lots of choices! Warm and friendly. I loved Sitka, and I really liked this N&B.

We stayed here for four nights in the off-season and found it delightful in every way. I'm not sure there's much I can add to what has already been written: Nearly every reasonable need was anticipated and provided for, the room was immaculate and tastefully designed, fresh cookies each afternoon became an anticipated treat, the owners are happy to provide information about the town, and I'm not sure what could be done to improve on the breakfasts (we even enjoyed salmon a couple mornings).

The home is in a quiet neighborhood close enough to downtown that you can get by without a car if you don't mind walking 15 or so minutes to shops and restaurants. (Sitka, by the way, is very pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly.) A trail through the rain forest takes off just a couple blocks from the home.

Room Tip: B&B web site describes the rooms well.

The Alaska Ocean View B&B is really wonderful. The proprietors are passionate about their home and the service and food were outstanding. When asked about the property in Sitka, everyone said it is the best and we agree.

We stayed at the Alaska Ocean View B&B in Sitka after disembarking from a Lindblad Expedition in Sitka. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with all the items you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay. Carole placed diet sodas in our refrig and French roast coffee in the room for us in advance of our arrival. She also served a great breakfast and helped us with a good restaurant recommendation for dinner. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience for both of us.

The Ocean View is a bit removed from the central downtown area but within walking distance if you are into walking. Cabs in Sitka are not expensive if you prefer riding.
