Alaska Bed & Breakfasts

Want to get a fuller picture of Alaska during your visit? Stay with Alaskans. Local bed & breakfasts put authentic Alaska experts—your hosts—at your service: They're happy to share insider tips about the local attractions, as well as their favorite recommendations for hikes, fishing spots or little-known gems. They also give you an in-depth feel for what life is like here for regular folks.

Alaska B&Bs can appeal to all tastes, too: accommodations range from luxurious to rustic, and from quaint homes to guest apartments or even cabins. Each B&B has its own personality: some cater well to business travelers, or have fun activities for families, while others specialize in romance or active, outdoors pursuits.

Breakfast styles also run the gamut, from a stocked kitchen in your private cabin to a communal table where you meet travelers from around the world. Feel free to ask about that breakfast before you book: Will it include classic muffins and fruit, or Alaskan specialties such as salmon quiche, reindeer sausage and wild blueberry pancakes with fireweed syrup? Either way, you can count on a comfortable setting, friendly service, and a great breakfast to kick off your daily adventures.
