The view is magnificent; the rooms are comfortable; the food is delightful. I have stayed in many, many B&Bs and this one is at the top of my list. Melissa and Keith are perfects hosts. They balance wonderful conversation with respect for their guests' privacy.

The hosts were extremely pleasant and make you feel right at home. Made breakfast for us every morning which were delicious! They even made to go breakfasts for any early morning trips planned. Everything was very clean and very nice rooms. Would definitely recommend staying here. It is a little ways out of town, but an easy and quiet drive....

Our family stayed for two nights. My boys took off early and Keith had a hot sandwich and more for them to take. I enjoyed a wonderful hot breakfast at 8:00 with the rest of the guests. Crane's rest was our most welcoming stay in Alaska. Thanks for shariing your home. The Sandhill Crane under our window was a bonus!

Thank you for the kind review Karen. We loved having you visit and hearing the "fish stories" from the boys and about your trip to the winery with Jean! Hope to see you all again one day!
