I was in town to visit a friend and needed a place to sleep. Christina and Steve's place was nice and clean

Very warm welcome by Cristina and Steve at their comfortable home a short distance from the glacier. Every morning, I was able to load up on oatmeal while discussing Alaska state politics. On the weekend, there's a snow bus to Eaglecrest Ski Area that stops a block from their house!

Very easy check in/out and great neighborhood location near the glacier. Highly recommend staying in this area over downtown. TV had every channel you can imagine which was nice at the end of the day and settling into bed. Cristina and Steve were super friendly, offering up a ton of ideas on things to do and even dropping us off at the airport! Thank you for a great stay!

They have great hospitality, a beer per day, breakfast -> dinner as I left very early in the morning so I got another meal as a dinner instead of breakfast :))

This was a great stay! I wanted to pick a place closer to the glacier so we could go hiking and wouldn't need to take a bus or cab as much and this spot is super close. Even better Christina and Steve let you use two of their bikes to get there even quicker. They also have a bookcase full of helpful info for food or things to do, maps, trail information all available in your room! They both were very helpful and have us a bunch of info for bus scheduling and trail info, and let us know when the northern lights were out so we could see them!

Christina and Steve were very welcoming hosts. Christina was kind enough to allow me to cook my breakfast as an evening dinner as I had to leave very early. Their house was a little noisy, but with the complementary beer and a cozy bed I had no problem sleeping.

Conversational atmosphere, wall decorations and reading materials were all appreciated. I commented on a lack of drawers for storing non-hanging clothes and they promptly added some.
