                                                                  Thank you for your positive review and feedback. It's really appreciated, we'd love to you host you again any time.

                                                                  The most charming home and hostess. Every inch of this beautiful cottage was decorated with love!

                                                                  Donna- went to great lengths to make our stay in Alaska very special. Her guest home is absolutely beautiful. She thought of everything. This guest home is cozy, comfortable, and absolutely beautiful. You will enjoy your stay tremendously. It has a beautiful view and you feel it is a home away from home. I will recommend this place to everyone who visits. If I could give in ten stars I would.
