Palmer / Wasilla Area Bed & Breakfasts
You won’t find many large hotels in the Mat-Su region, but there’s no shortage of family-run bed and breakfasts. The area has B&B's overlooking lakes, nestled in the forest, fronting main streets, or staring at Denali (Mt. McKinley). Choose a place set in the mountains with private cabins, or a converted family house. No matter what your taste, you’ll find a bed and breakfast suited for you.
Come ready to eat: Alaskan B&B's pride themselves on their breakfasts. Smoked salmon scrambled eggs, reindeer sausage biscuits and gravy, fresh-picked wild blueberry pies, sourdough pancakes, strong coffee, and fresh-baked goods are standards. You’ll also find gluten-free options. No worries if you’re heading out on an early-morning adventure—many B&B's can have a meal ready before you leave.
The B&B’s make it easy to explore this region, where you can head into Denali National Park, drop down to Anchorage or the Kenai, or spend time exploring the Chugach and Talkeetna ranges. All are within a couple hours drive.
Best of all, prices are lower than in Denali Park or Anchorage—rooms generally cost between $89 and $200 per night. And since knowledgeable, affable Alaskans run the B&Bs, you’re not just getting an innkeeper, but also a tour guide, storyteller, historian, and comedian!
