Felt as you were staying at a relatives home. Renee was very accommodating. Her cooking is fantastic. She shared some of her "Alaska" experiences with us, and made us feel very comfortable. We did catch a glimpse of Denali/McKinley on several occasions- Even though there was still snow outside at the time we enjoyed sitting on the deck taking in the nature(of course wrapped in a nice blanket). We recommend McKinley View B&B for anyone who asks us where to stay and would definitely stay there again without hesitation. Oh and the bed and bedding-- better than any location I have ever stayed at-including 5 star resorts and cruises.
