With stunning views of Pioneer Peak, gorgeous flowers on the grounds and a huge, delicious breakfast....this may be my favorite B& B ever. The host is very friendly as well as the rest of the staff. The cottages give much more privacy than a typical b&b. I just love this place.

Aw, thanks! Please come back and see us again. I appreciate your high praise! People ask me all the time--do I ever not notice our view. No--it's stunning every day, in different ways each day, according to the light, the clouds, how much snow is on the mountains...I still pinch myself that I'm a girl from Iowa and I get...

Really cute and well cared for. There were stand alone cottages plus a few rooms in the "inn". We were in the inn: full or queen (can't remember) with twin over top (railing in our room wasn't suitable for young kids), very clean and nice bathroom in the room, shared kitchen (sink, fridge, microwave). Breakfast was great: fresh fruit, bacon,...

Hi, thanks for writing a review about your stay! We are proud of our hot breakfast buffet that we serve every day in the summer, and glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the good remarks about how clean the room was, too. Our college and high school workers work really hard to provide great service for our guests!

We stayed 1 night May 22, 2016. It was my family traveling (all four) . We flew in at night and it was a quick trip to Palmer. This place was clean, comfortable, and a beautiful view. They left us a breakfast that was great! I think in the season they do a hot breakfast. We stayed in the room...

I appreciate you sharing your experience with other travelers. You're right, you were just a few days ahead of when we start our full, hot buffet breakfast for the summer season. We do that every day through Labor Day (and beyond if we're still full and busy with travelers). The Matanuska Glacier is one of the shining star attractions in...

Stayed for one night to break up the drive from Healy to Homer. We did not stay in a cottage, we were in the B&B part that is more like a motel. The rooms are brand new and nice if not a little generic. The breakfast was a Jimmy Dean sausage sandwich, some processed banana bread and DIY coffee in...

Hi, those are fightin' words--my banana bread is homemade from my own recipe! I'm sorry we didn't know from you that you were vegetarians, so that we could provide a breakfast entree that was vegetarian for you. We are happy to accommodate dietary limitations if you let us know. Since your rating only gives us a 60% approval (3 out...

Huge jetted tub, excellent breakfast buffet, high end decor. Centrally located. Nice, friendly staff. Flip a switch for the fireplace and sip a glass of wine while you enjoy a great view of the glacier. Perfect.

It all started when we arrived. We stayed there a year ago and they have done so much to improve the property. They greeted us by name, with big smiles, and made us feel right at home by introducing us to our room. There was a deck with chairs, and I wished we would have had time to watch the...

I really appreciate your gracious comments, and I'll share them with our staff. We have put extra effort into our landscaping and gardens this spring! Thanks for noticing. Our helpers this summer are so genuinely caring and hard working--my B&B is just shining right now, from all their hard work! Thanks for thinking of us and staying with us again....

Wished we could have stayed longer than one night. Lovely accommodations in one of the "apartment" suites in the main house. Felt like a home away from home. Beautifully landscaped setting, peaceful.

Had an extended stay here. Laundry on site, nice grounds, very nice staff. I've stayed at other facilities in Palmer and this is for Alaska standards a 5. Close to hospital---3 minutes. Good for commuters. Positive experience. Clean and provided what we needed.

This place is great. I stayed in an area that had a washer,dryer, community kitchen area. My room was clean and simple but comfortable. The bathroom was quite large which I like! In the fridge I had a meal for breakfast and a snack in a very cute basket. They were very accommodating and I returned for 3 visits!
