Fodor's Expert Review Black Bear Inn

5528 N. Tongass Hwy., Ketchikan, Alaska, 99901, USA

The views of the Tongass Narrows from inside this waterfront B&B are remarkable, and the four rooms all have plush furniture, comfortable beds, and porches or balconies. In lieu of group breakfasts, the kitchen is stocked with fruit, baked goods, and other items, and guests can eat at their leisure. The easygoing owners, Nicole and Jim Church, offer as much (or as little) conversation as you're comfortable with. The Black Bear also has a top-floor one-bedroom apartment for rent, as well as a two-bedroom cabin.
