While on a cruise in Alaska I suffered a mild heart attack and was flown to Providence Hospital in Anchorage. Since Anchorage wasn't on our agenda, we had no idea about where my husband could stay while I was in the hospital. Thanks to a very friendly and helpful staff at the hospital we were told about the Alaskan-European B&B. It isn't overly fancy but it certainly felt like home. Irene, the owner, took excellent care of my husband until I was discharged and then she took good care of me also! We were literally stuck in Anchorage with no way home. Because of the oncoming Labor Day holiday there were no available flights, motorhomes or cars. While we stayed with Irene, people from all over the world came and went. People from Germany, France, Canada,etc...Irene could speak seven languages so they all felt at home here. The table was set for breakfast whatever time you woke up and Irene does all the cooking herself! If you are ever in Anchorage and need a friendly place to stay I would definitely recommend "the Alaskan-European B&B! If you do stay there let me know if Irene makes a special kind of pancakes with a secret ingredient that I told her about!
