We stayed at this B&B back in 2001. We have talked about it ever since & agreed that this was probably our favorite vacation EVER! And we've literally traveled all over the world! We enjoyed it SO much, we're heading back there again this week for a two week stay!

Our stay here was not what we expected. First, the B & B is far outside of Kenai. While the setting is pretty, the view of the lake is largely blocked out by trees. The home itself is cluttered and not very clean (dog hair covered us both by the time we left). The room we were in was small...

Our time with Sharon was more like visiting a friend than staying in a B and B. The room downstairs was completely comfortable, and we were the only ones there so sharing a bathroom wasn't an issue. The artifacts were a plus, but the big draw is Sharon herself. She has had an interesting life and we were pleased to...

We had the pleasure to stay one night and Sharon was a welcoming hostess. Our bed was extremely comfy with sumptuous linens. We were a little nervous having to share a bathroom, but to our surprise we were the only guests that night. Sharon's blueberry cream cheese casserole was delicious. We found her life in Alaska interesting as well as...

Recently stayed with Sharon for 2 nites in August. Was an awesome experience. Comfortable beds, very clean and a great breakfast. Would highly recommend a stay with her bed and breakfast while traveling in the area.

Both my husband and I loved this place. We staged our rafting trip nearby. Quiet, with beautiful and comfortable bedrooms surrounded by the songs of so many birds outside. Breakfast was sourdough waffles...the best I've had and homemade juice and jam. I must confess, it was with some trepidation with truth in advertising, that we discovered our grouchy old host...

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Grouchy Old Woman B & B. and let me assure you, Sharon is not grumpy but one of the nicest people I have met here in Alaska. Her blueberry cream cheese breakfast is delicious. The flowers all around were beautiful. The Alaskan relics in the house were fascinating. I highly...

We found this B&B when looking for lodging in the Kenai area that was near a bearsighting adventure. Our exchange with Sharon prior to arriving was very pleasant and meeting her was even more pleasant. Her B&B is located right next to Daniels Lake and is very comfy, clean and cozy. Sharon is a great cook and has a lot...

This was the best accommodation we had during a 2 week trip to Alaska. This is truly a great value. You get wonderful cooked breakfasts every morning. The owner and her daughter are very friendly and helpful. The room and bath are clean, nice and the bed is super comfy. I would highly recommend this B&B.

What makes staying at this B&B so special is the owner, Sharon. She made us feel at home right away. We stayed in one of the rooms downstairs, which shares a bathroom with a second room that was unoccupied at the time we stayed there. We enjoyed having the downstairs space to ourselves after long days of hiking. The B&B...

“There are three stories and all three offer great views of the private lake.”

“Downstairs was very private.”

“Pick one of the rooms downstairs if you don't have a problem with stairs. I do not recommend this property for the physically handicapped as it is perched on a steep lakeshore and is constructed accordingly.”
