Fodor's Review

This location offers the best of both worlds: it's walkable to everything worth seeing in Downtown, but it's on the quiet end of 5th Avenue, right next to a small park and the 11-mile Coastal Trail. The unobstructed view across Cook Inlet to Sleeping Lady (Mt. Susitna) is a bonus at this small inn, built as a private residence in 1939. The rooms offer a simple yet elegant ambience and feature original art. A hearty Continental breakfast is served in the comfortable living room, and a dozen good restaurants, including several of Alaska's finest, are within a 10-minute walk. Profuse gardens grace the property. Need a bike? Lifetime Adventures bicycle rentals sets up on the property throughout the summer.
