1. The King Size bed was the most comfortable bed my wife and I have ever experienced. It is even better than our Tempur-Pedic here at home. 2. The roomy, square 4'X4' shower was a delight. 3. The Large Jacuzzi tub was enjoyable. 4. The in-room "Continental Breakfasts" were above average. Quite good in fact. I was especially surprised by...

LOCATION Easy to find, on a side road just off Trunk Road and only a short distance from H-4. Cabins are on a small hill with great glacier views. Despite being near the road, the location is quiet. ACCOMMODATION Our cottage was impeccably clean and finished to a high standard. The décor was modern yet cosy. A comfortable, decent sized...

Hello! I can't place which one of our English guests you were, from your User Name here. I'm wondering if you had intended to have a Guest Cottage instead of a Luxury Cottage, since you were wanting a stovetop/oven, which the Guest Cottages do have...I apologize if that was a mistake on our end! You're right, the Luxury Cottages don't...

I stayed here twice, once while heading to Valdez from Anchorage, and once on the way back from Valdez. In both cases, my stay was great. The first night, I stayed in something that was more like a trailer. It was done very nicely, though. The bed was very comfortable. There was a breakfast and juices included in the fridge....

I was in the area for business, this was my first time here. I will be returning. I had a cottage that was very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful. I had a basket in my refrigerator that had a very nice assortment of things for breakfast. I would recomend staying here. You will not regret it..

The pros: The place is very clean (except for a bathrooms drawer - wait for it), the shower head is really high (appreciated by this tall person) and the gas-operated fireplace is a nice touch. The cons: We had been "upgraded" from a two-bedroom apartment to a one-bedroom cottage when we arrived. The charge also ended up being more than...

First and foremost, I'd like to sincerely apologize for the hairbrushes your daughters found-- gross!! I'm mortified by that, and that I also needed to get soap and shampoo for you. I have corrected these problems with our cleaning helper. I'm really sorry that it wasn't a good stay for you. When your husband checked in, I let him know...

My husband and I stayed in the new cottage #2 and found it quite comfortable and charming. Our dogs being able to stay with us was an important plus. The jacuzzi tub was fantastic after a day of hiking, and the chocolate covered strawberries and champagne a lovely treat for our romantic weekend getaway. The view of the mountains and...

I really like the cottages versus the apartments. The view is breathtaking. The most amazing thing was the quiet evenings which made sleeping effortless. The staff are kind and friendly and make you feel right at home. When I come back in May I will stay there again! Thank you Karen for your hospitality.

Hi Sue, thank you so much! The individual private cabins are well-insulated and most people find them very quiet and good for sleeping! We are looking forward to building several more over the next few years, since our cottages are often 100% full. We'll hope to see you on your next trip!

Our stay was wonderful! The food is excellent and plentiful. What variety. The amenities are perfect. I couldn't have been more pleased with our sweet little cottage.

We stayed in one of the cottages for a couple of nights on our honeymoon from the UK. The cottages are lovely and the bed was huge and very comfy.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write a review. I value your feedback and will take these things into account in the newest cottages we'll build next.
