Stylish, welcoming - best bet in the area

We stayed both here and at the garden Gate. Garden Gate was fine but a little soul-ess. The rooms at Pioneer ridge all had a real style about them, and the common areas were large and well conceived. Great views too!

Great value. Great place to stay!!

Prices for hotels in anchorage were very high so we decided to look outside the big city. This was a great find! So much more for less money! The themed rooms were very cool. We stayed in the Iditarod Room. Lots of room, comfy bed. We enjoyed a nice breakfast looking out of a huge picture window with a view of the beautiful mountains. There is also a nice game room/library where we enjoyed playing pool and reading. There is also a glass enclosed room upstairs for viewing scenery and stars. The owners were out of town when we were there in August, but their daughter and mother took good care of us. I would definitely recommend it! We went salmon fishing in Talkeetna which was about an hour away.

the perfect stay

This B&B is breathtaking. Rooms are gorgeous and very private. The place was immaculately clean. I could never take my eyes off the view outside. It was stunning. The owners packed us a great breakfast the morning we went fishing. We enjoyed the billiards and foosball tables. Our two kids 8 and 10 - had a blast. I would highly recommend this getaway to anyone!

A Hidden Gem Centrally Located

5 on July 29, 2015

The Pioneer Ridge Bed and Breakfast was a hidden gem we found and stayed at the final 3 days of our Alaskan adventure. After starting our trip down south in Homer to Halibut fish and then Alyeska to hike and see the mountains we headed north to Wasilla. Pioneer Ridge B&B's location made it easy for us to make a variety of day trips to various activities and sights. Denali and the town of Talkeetna is just a 75 mile drive north and the quaint town provides the best views of Mt. McKinley (Denali)... The owners who run the B&B (Lenny and Shannon) were also extremely helpful in pointing out other activities and things to do in the area since we didn't have every day planned out fully prior to the trip. They recommended a whitewater rafting place that was 40 minute drive and also organized a Salmon fishing trip on the Little Susitna river for myself, my wife and 3 of the other guests staying at the B&B that we didn't know prior to the trip. All 5 of us caught and kept our limit of King Salmon. The accommodations themselves were great. We stayed in the "Iditarod" room which was large, rustic and clean and we had our own private bathroom with a jacuzzi soaking tub. Overall it was an exceptional experience and I'd highly recommend stopping for a few nights during your alaska trip. Chris Stayed 3 nights early July 2015
