Does anyone have any recommendations for bed & breakfast lodging in the Anchorage area? I'm in the beginning stages of planning a trip up to the area to coincide with Fur Rondy. Our tentative dates of travel are from 2/25/09-3/12/09. There are so many listings that its starting to get overwhelming. We would be spending some time in Anchorage but also heading down to Soldotna & up towards Wasilla. Any help would be appreciated.

That is a great question, Chris...and I do hope you can find something to your liking. I enjoy B&B's far more than the standards hotels/motels.
Are you looking more for the Anchorage area or are you considering out in the valley as a possibility?

There are a couple that look quaint and lovely:
ALASKA GARDEN GATE BED AND BREAKFAST

Anchorage Alaska Bed and Breakfast - Alaskas North Country Castle - Inn - Lodging and Accommodations

Anchorage Alaska Romantic Bed and Breakfast B&B Anchorage AK BNB Anchorage Romantic B And B

Alaska Bed and Breakfast (B&B)& Cabins, Rooms & travel lodging accommodations at Palmer, Alaska, (AK) near Anchorage.

I haven't a clue on any...just thought I'd pitch something out there for you. Good luck!

Cori, those are some great ideas. The first link is one that I'm seriously considering.

That one really caught my eye...and as far as being in Anchorage directly, I really like the looks of the North Country Castle - the Turnagain Suite.

You'll definitely get some awsome sunset views out over the inlet from that area. Not too far from my place btw! If you are planning to attend Rondy activities, the commute from Rabit Creek, 15 minutes to downtown, is a snap. Far easier than driving in from the valley!

That's something else that's been bothering me. I've heard how bad the roads are in the valley & that the drivers only figure out that its winter when their brakes lock up & they go in the ditch.

Well, that is another thing to consider too. If your stay in Anchorage will be primarily centered on Rondy, you may just want to consider staying in one of the Downtown hotels. Being within walking distance of many of the activities really makes it so much easier to come and go without worrying about driving, parking, etc, particularly on the day of the start. Winter rates at the downtown hotels are probably even lower than the B&B's as well. The Marriot and the Sheraton are usually at the top of my recommended list for downtown hotels.

I stayed at the Agate Inn. We were the only ones in the back property and the owner was extremely nice and helpful. It is located in Wasilla Alaska Hotel, Motel Lodging and Vacation Rental between Palmer and Wasilla, north of Anchorage, Alaska.
