This affordable small inn in downtown Anchorage is a great perch for exploring the city at a relaxed pace. Located just steps away from the railroad depot, there's no need for a car—you can walk to shops and galleries, the Anchorage Museum, or the weekly Anchorage Market & Festival. You have easy access to the hiking and biking on the scenic Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, or can walk down the bluff to the train depot and the Ship Creek area, famous for salmon viewing and summer fishing derbies.

The inn, once a small apartment complex, offers 5 standard rooms and 6 full apartments—the latter with kitchens and living rooms; in standard rooms, you'll have shared access to a kitchen and common living room. All rooms and suites come with wifi, cable TV, and laundry facilities. For the inn's outdoor decks, you'll have great views of the Cook Inlet, Susitna Mountain and the Ship Creek area.

While the full apartment suites are great for families with hungry kids, no one needs to cook their own breakfast here: The rate includes a daily breakfast, featuring a hot entrée such as eggs and reindeer sausage, caramelized French toast or Alaska blueberry pancakes. The inn offers a congenial B&B vibe, as guests from all over share plans and stories around the breakfast table; hosts Larry and Allan, who have each been in Alaska for more than 25 years, are always happy to offer advice for fun activities or destinations around the city or state. They also own another nearby B&B, the Wildflower Inn.

  • Convenient lodging in apartment style rooms and suites
  • Kitchen access, separate rooms great for families
