Fodor’s Expert Review

On a small pond near Mendenhall Glacier, this large, jaw-droppingly landscaped home may be Alaska's finest bed-and-breakfast. Owner Maryann Ray pulls out all the stops for guests, with two outdoor hot tubs; ambient fireplaces; jetted bathtubs; a library full of books, DVDs, and videotapes; four-poster beds with high-end mattresses; private balconies; a Skype account for free calls home; hot breakfasts; and a well-stocked breakfast nook. Maryann and her daughter Rachael are skilled itinerary planners, and Rachael is even licensed to plan and perform weddings. Guests can borrow a rowboat, paddleboats, kayaks, fishing poles, hiking gear, and cross-country skis. In the summer a hot breakfast is served each morning and wine and cheese in the evening, and there's never a shortage of friendly conversation. The Pond also has two condos in Douglas, closer to town, that sleep four people each.
