“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2011

You will be hard pressed to find a B & B better than this. The attention to detail and service is in a class of its own. Excellent breakfast (No muffins in a zip-lock bag here).

Five minutes from the ferry, and a fifteen to twenty minute walk to downtown.

It was a pleasure to stay at this B&B which is one of the best that we have stayed at.
The breakfast was very tasty and imaginative and served in bright, airy and beautifully furnished surroundings.
It’s a little bit out of town, but in a very tour ship oriented town that is not a bad thing especially if you have a car.
Alyce was extremely helpful with information regarding parking downtown and places to eat etc.
We had long and amusing chats about our mutual travel experiences which we always find helpful in planning our future trips.

I don't know how Alyce keeps the place do spic 'n span, but she does. Her tasty breakfasts are artfully produced, but not weird. And the gathering room, complete with gas fireplace and a view, is a lovely place to spend early mornings, late evenings, and anytime in between. Tip: Although we could have gotten around without a car from this location, we really appreciated having rented one.

In the dozens of B&Bs my wife and I have enjoyed, the best are well hosted. I selected Alderhouse for our first trip with our pre-teen grandchildren based on internet information and my follow-up call to Alyce. Her charm and helpfulness suggested we would be in good hands. We were. The accommdations are comfortable and each breakfast was a culinary adventure (toned down for the kids' pickiness). But the best part was Alyce's care, guidance and hospitality. Fot those of you with mobility challenges, the stairs are steep. For the rest, say "Hi" for us!

Alyce runs an absolutely wonderful bed and breakfast! The B&B has only three rooms, and since we were traveling with another couple, Alyce didn't lease the third while we were there. We thus had the entire home to ourselves. The rooms/bathrooms are comfortable, quiet and very well appointed. Her breakfasts were truly delicious, and the location couldn't be better...close to town, but away from "cruise ship central." We would highly recommend Alderhouse to anyone wanting a "home away from home" while in Ketchikan.

TO north of the main portion of KETCHIKAN in a quite area of the city. Breakfast was something out of the ordinary, one did know what was going to be served, but all were very palatable and filling. The house has lofted position so one can watch all the activity on the water and on the air strip . At the bottom of the hill is the bus stops for either direction, Alyce was also prepared with timetables. . We had a very pleasant stay may be because she like to come to England for her walking experiences. Rooms are more than adequate, it was a good place to stay

On our arrival by taxi we were welcomed by the hostess and offered a cup of tea or coffee. A lovely sitting/lounge room overlooking the passage, the ferry terminal and across the water the airport. We walked on to the car and passenger ferry for the short trip across to the mainland from the airport where a taxi was waiting for passengers.
The walk from the ferry terminal to the B&B is up a steep incline. The public bus stop is outside the ferry terminal and runs a frequent service in to the town which is a flat walk about 2 miles. Also next to the bus stop is a very good restaurant attached to a hotel chain.
Our hostess is an excellent cook and for the 2 breakfasts we were there did different and delicious hot additions to the juice, cereal, fruit, breads and coffee served. She was also happy to share her knowledge of the history and story of the town.
