If you love wonderful water views, you will love the GRANDVIEW BED AND BREAKFAST! If you love the MOOSE, ask for the Moose Room! Our NO NONSENSE hostess, Leslie, runs a tight ship, but took good care of us from the time she picked us up at Wrangell Airport to the time we checked out after our too brief two-day stay. Leslie is a 3rd generation Alaskan and she was able to answer all of our questions about Alaska in general and about Wrangell...
Found this gem on Trip Advisor and it was everything that I hoped it would be - and more. The accommodations were cozy and clean, waking up in the Moose room and enjoying the vista followed by a terrific breakfast and conversation with Leslie made for a great business trip.
The Grand View lives up to its name and offers beautiful views across the water to the mountains. The rooms are spacious, clean and with modern bathroom facilities. There is a huge living room and a fully equipped kitchen. It's a great place to relax after a day exploring. Leslie, our host was wonderful . So welcoming and helpful. She cooks a great breakfast. The Grand View is about a 20 minute walk from town, but Leslie can usually assist with transport or help you find an alternate way of getting about. I highly recommend this B&B and would love to stay here again. It's a great welcome to life in Alaska. Thanks for everything Leslie
My husband and I started our Bucket List Vacation at the Grand View B and B. Leslie was a wonderful, entertaining host. The location was convenient to town and the house and property were breath taking. We were fortunate to get the moose room with a very large window that provided the most beautiful view of the water and amazing sunsets.
Leslie was a gracious host that provided well prepared breakfast and tasty snacks. She gave us many great tips about the area and history of Wrangell. Additionally suggesting reading material that she has on hand. On days that we had excursion she prepared to go breakfast for us to take with us.
I cannot put into words the uniqueness of this home. Leslie has put a lot into the decor of the inside and out. Her yard has the most beautiful flowers and many childhood secrets. Inside the home has a very Alaskan feel about it but in a very cozy setting. The beds were very comfortable with great sheets and soft towels. There is a washer and dryer available and coolers to use.
There are many interesting stories that I could share about our great experience at the Grand View but one that impressed me was on one of our early morning excursions Leslie cooked a pan of small breakfast quiche. She made enough for us to share with all 6 people on the excursion even though they were not staying at the Grand View. We actually warmed them in a stove on the boat. The boat had a wonderful breakfast smell that went well with excitement of our excursion. Leslie's kindness was heartwarming, her home beautiful and to top it off she is a Packers Fan!
I will post pictures. Thanks for the a great start to our most amazing bucket list vacation, Leslie. We will return.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and honestly could not have picked a better place! Leslie made us feel welcome right from the pickup at the airport until our final goodbye. The B&B is fabulous - beautifully decorated - themed bedrooms, glass windows everywhere and a great breakfast every morning. The Moose Room's front location with big picture window overlooking the water can't be beat! We sat outside on our first evening and saw a couple of whales passing by. We walked into town once or twice a day (about 2 miles each way) and enjoyed our leisurely pace. There are two grocery stores in town to pick up a few essentials. Highly recommend the Stik for your other meals. We tried one or two other places in town, but nothing compared.
Leslie does have a rental car available if you want to drive around Wrangell or get some items from the grocery store.
Definitely recommend staying at the Grand View - you won't be disappointed!
