Oscar Gill House

1344 W. 10th Ave., Anchorage, Alaska, 99501, USA

Originally built by Gill in the settlement of Knik (north of Anchorage) in 1913, this historic home has been transformed into a comfortable B&B in a quiet neighborhood along Delaney Park Strip, with Downtown attractions a short walk away. How did the house get to Anchorage? By boat; three years after Gill built it in Knik, he floated it to Anchorage, where he later served as mayor for three terms and then speaker of the Territorial House. Two rooms share a bath with a classic claw-foot tub, and the third contains a private bath and whirlpool bath. Little touches include down comforters, free use of bicycles, and a delicious breakfast.
