“Quality, comfort, great breakfasts - and a bargain”
Reviewed 7 June 2009

We spent four nights this past week in Anchorage and chose the Moose Den among several B & Bs in South Anchorage that we had considered. (Their Web site, with its good room photos, helped us decide, as did the availability of a private bathroom -- something we've learned not to take for granted.)

My husband and I enjoyed Rico and Kamscia's hospitality and general helpfulness, as well as their quality-built and comfortable new home. Kamscia's breakfasts were delicious and more than filling. With an amply sized bathroom in all the rooms, a nice-sized television and very comfy beds, we were at home from the moment we got there. As an added bonus, we saw a moose right in the yard as we returned "home" on two consecutive nights.

For us, this place was perfect, as it was close to the home of a family member we were regularly visiting in South Anchorage. However, it really is a great location and would be a very good choice for anyone considering a stay in the Anchorage area, whether for one night or for several.

As the owner of a vacation rental myself, I'm very conscious of "all the little details" and have to say I'm most impressed with the Moose Den and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality, hassle-free place to stay while visiting the great state of Alaska.

We had such a difficult time trying to find a decent hotel in Anchorage for under $250, and all the highly ranked b&b's were booked. Finally, after searching and searching online, we found the Moose Den B&B. I think it wasn't booked up because it was further from downtown, about 13 miles south of the airport. This didn't matter to us as we have a car and was heading to Whittier the next morning anyways. The location was very easy to find, and although the neighborhood initially looked suburban, the road eventually led to a wonderfully woodsy property that contained the house. The house looked new.

The layout- the owners live upstairs. Downstairs, there are three suites which all have their own bathrooms and leading out to a hallway with shared private entrance. The house is situated with gorgeous forest views on all sides of the home.

Pros: Delicious breakfast of vegetable omelet, reindeer sausages, buttered toast, and Costa Rican strong coffee. Our room, Nugget Room, was moderately sized (big enough to fit our pack-n-play portable crib for our son), and most importantly, VERY CLEAN. This is my highest priority, and I am very picky- I was pleased that the room and bathroom was spotlessly clean with modern, new furniture. The desk was useful and the unit had wireless internet. Windows had darkening shades (not black-out, but darkened enough for us). The owners were very nice and welcoming, we are not typical b&b people, but felt very comfortable and welcomed by the owners. They also made us feel comfortable with our 18-month old son (even making a comment that it was okay for him to make a mess at the breakfast table!). They also didn't mind that we had to arrive at 2am due to our late flight.

Cons: Don't leave the front door open too long, as there are mosquitoes outside by the door! We arrived after midnight, and inadvertently left the door open for awhile while unloading our luggage. Mosquitoes LOVE my blood, so we had to kill a couple of them before going to bed.

All in all, we felt so grateful and lucky that we found this place- it was at least $100 cheaper than the cheapest decent hotel we could find in Anchorage for our travel date! We will definitely return and recommend to others.

  • Liked — Newness, cleanliness, price
  • Disliked — Some mosquitoes outside (not THAT bad, I guess, considering this IS Alaska!)
