Stayed in this lovely B&B for two weeks recently. Everything was perfect, room was spotlessly clean, spacious, cosy atmosphere, in a quiet location. The kitchen is well equipped and roomy. The B&B is walking distance to ski lifts and restaurants. If you depend on public transport, the bus stop is right in front. And there is Carol, the operator of the B&B, a lovely lady, very forthcoming, helpful and accommodating who made mine and my friends stay there even better. Highly recommended

We decided to stop in Girdwood (rather than Achorage) for a drive between Denali NP and Seward. Bud & Carol's B&B was a good choice. The B&B has 2 rooms on a ground floor, with independent access. Both rooms share a kitchen/dinning room area with a large table where breakfast is provided (coffee, tea, yougurt, boiled egg, fresh bread, cheese, fruit etc). We enjoyed our stay and found the location very handy to visit the Wildlife Conservation Center on arrival day and to continue to Whittier through the tunnel for the 26 Glacier Cruise the morning we left. Jack Sprat restaurant is around the corner. Carol provided a lot of information of the area.

This place is very quaint, cute and clean. Carol greeted us in the early evening and provided us with tons of information about the area and things to see and do. She also has a book that tells how the B&B got started and information like when to see the bore tides. Since there are only two rooms and our group had both, we had the place to ourselves. The kitchen area was large enough for all of us to eat and prepare our meals. If we have the opportunity to return we would not hesitate to stay here again.

I am re-reading the reviews to see where I went wrong. This is a very simple spot, but nothing charming or with views. It would benefit from an update: the bed was lumpy, and the sheets were pilled flannel. We had to leave our drapes closed because the tall, surrounding buildings looked right in our windows.

My wife and I stayed for a couple nights prior to our cruise to Vancouver. We arrived late and were able to easily enter the B&B. There are only two rooms and we had the larger of the two. As it turned out, we were the only ones there. Even better. The rooms are spacious with private baths. The common area is large and really gives the place a sense of space. Breakfast is hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, homemade bread along with milk, oj, and coffee. Plenty and filling. Met Carol on the last morning to pay the bill. She is very pleasant and gave us some good ideas for hiking the area. Highly recommend.
