Hatcher Pass Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 13 Palmer B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2012

We rented one of the smaller cabins for one night. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, but perhaps a little overpriced at $114.

As others have noted, the website gives the impression of a little hideaway, when in reality the cabins sit next to a highway and close to a gas station and convenience store. Still, it is convenient to Hatcher Pass and the Independence Mine.

The owner stocks the mini-fridge for a make-your-own breakfast (sausage and eggs, bagels, etc.), but it takes a while to cook anything on the little hot plate provided. There is a full-size coffee maker, which is nice for a Coffee Achiever like me, and a microwave.

The wi-fi service was spotty (2 or 3 bars, with several dropped signals) and the TV had just two working channels (NBC and PBS, and the PBS was iffy). The heater worked great.

All in all a good experience, but I do not think it justified the price.

The owners were great and the cabins were great also. They left food for you to cook when you woke up in the morning. The curtains were great for blocking out the Alaskan night light for a good rest. Great price also. AN all aroubnd great experience!!!

Our stay at Hatcher Pass B & B was wonderful ! What a great location. Our Grande Cabin was inviting,spacious, spotless and just beautiful. This was stop 5 of 6 and by far the best!! We really enjoyed having the option to relax and fix our own breakfast or eat on the run. Liz was there to greet us when we arrived and was very helpful in sharing things we didn't want to miss out on.

We highly recommend you stay here.

After spending 10 days in Wrangell-St. Elias N.P., we wanted to continue hiking in the beautiful area of Harchers Pass. Our cabin was cozy, comfy and well appointed with all we would need. It's my second stay here in 3 years and I appreciate the little things the owner does to personalize your stay. Plenty of info on hiking trails, road updates, local eateries, etc. I love the potted flowers awaiting you outside each cabin and the area to sit and grill!

This was the last stop in Alaska for my Husband and I. It was a charmingly appointed cabin and in a great setting. The cabin was well stocked with breakfast goodies and had everything you could need supplied for a nice stay. My Husband gave the bed two thumbs up as that's his deciding factor on a good place to stay. It had great "black out" shades, which were important in June with the sun not setting until 11pm. Liz also provided many suggestions on things to see and do and there was lot's of material in the cabin. A great log cabin....we will stay here again on a future trip!
