Your hosts, Skip and Lisa Dent are Alaska Sourdoughs. Skip has lived and mined in Hope for more than 25 years. His daughter and grandchildren still live here. Skip’s hiked and worked all over this part of the state. Lisa was born and raised in Alaska. If she doesn’t know the answer to your question, she’ll find one before you leave.

Jeannine purchased this cabin in 2008

Hope is a unique and unhurried town featuring a historic district which looks and feels like the gold mining town Hope was in the 1800s. Residents and visitors can hike the mountains or fish the nearby streams, Wander through the historical museum and original log cabins, peer in the 100+ year old social hall, sip an Alaskan brew at the 100 year old pub at the shore of Turnigan Arm. The views are lovely, the mountains spectacular, and the Alaskans who live here are grand.

Alaskan Byways Bed and Breakfast is yours and yours alone when you make a reservation with us. The three bedroom cabin home, complete with every amenity for a pleasant stay, is your personal residence for your entire stay. The cabin is secluded on a 1+ acre wooded lot.

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

We planned our weekend getaway in May and a couple weeks before hand had to make some last minute changes. Lisa was really understanding and allowed us to make the changes we needed in order to come out and stay. We only stayed for one night but it was a fantastic experience, we recently had a baby so I spent most of my time inside the cabin with him while my husband and daughter went fishing. There were a couple of poles at the cabin for them to use and my daughter (who is 10 years old) caught her first two fish! It is hard to understand just how roomy the cabin in by looking at the pictures, it is a very good size. Nice size kitchen with an eating area, a tv with movies and dvd's in the living and two couches (which we wound up falling asleep on). The upstairs is wonderful and has an old charm to it, with three bedrooms and trees to look at out of each window it was very peaceful. I spent a lot of time holding the baby and watching the leaves on the trees blow in the wind... really it was just what I needed to get out of Anchorage and just rest. We ate at the cafe up the road and they had wonderful food, I especially enjoyed their breakfast menu. Saturday we walked around town, went to the Hope museum and then made our way back to Anchorage. Did I mention that we were able to bring our dog along? This was one of the main reason's why I booked this B&B, because our dog is like our family and we didn't want to have to kennel him to go out of town. The cabin was stocked with breakfast items, towels, soaps, washer and dryer... more than you recieve from most places. I also loved the old stove that was set up in the kitchen area. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, we will definitely make our way back up and recommend it to our family and friends.

Wonderful weekend getaway

We had the pleasure of staying in the Alaskan ByWays cabin this weekend with our family. It was a wonderful stay. Everything was as described in the listing here. The cabin was clean, comfortable and had all of the comforts of home - with an added charm of the rustic exterior and wooded setting. Our family had a chance to fish and hike in the area and Lisa was kind enough to recommend restaurants that suited our family's preferences. We had a wonderful weekend with our kids, in a beautiful setting. We'll definitely return to the cabin in the future and recommend LIsa & Skip's Alaskan Byways to visiting friends and relatives, as well as locals here in the area.

Lisa and Skip had everything you'd want (down to cookie mix) and everything you'd need for a stay in Alaska. We had just come from camping, and there was a washer and drier available for our use (not even a fee for it!), new and nice cooking ware, very comfy beds, games, and just an overall amazingly friendly atmosphere. I will be bringing all my family to this spot when they visit, and try to steal away with the BF for a fishing weekend. They even have a chest freezer to use for those of us who fish.
All of this was topped off with the stories the two shared and incredible kindness and appreciation Skip and Lisa have for their visitors. Wonderful place. Highly recommended.

A charming cabin with so much ambience!

I have stayed at many B&B's and this one was the best provisioned one yet. The pantry and fridge had plenty of choices and the kitchen is set up like a home, not a vacation rental. Beds are comfortable, the house was impeccably clean and the owners...well we just wished we had more time to visit with them. They know a lot about the area and have had very interesting life experiences. There were 5 of us sharing the cabin. Having one bathroom was not a problem at all. We took advantage of Skip's fishing recommendation and used the resident fishing poles to fish for pink salmon. My husband was running the Resurrection Pass 100 and this cabin was within walking distance of the start/finish. Perfect! Having a washer and dryer to deal with running clothes and fishing clothes was priceless. We just loved this place and enjoyed meeting/visiting with the owners. If we ever need to stay in Hope, AK again, we will stay at the Alaskan Byways B&B.

My wife & I & her family spent a few nights at the Alaskan Byways B&B. It was the perfect place for us to stay! Hope is pretty remote, but that is exactly what we were looking for. It didn't disappoint - it is a special place. Skip & Lisa are truly great hosts who obviously love Hope & obviously want to make sure their guests are having a great visit to their beautiful community. Skip & Lisa spent many hours going above & beyond showing us the area, offering advice, showing us the right technique for fishing, etc. The cabin is great & the food provided was more than enough for our breakfasts & then some - even with four boys in the cabin. There are two cafes in town - both serve really great food. My wife & I have rented many properties over the years, but I'm not sure we have ever enjoyed a place more.

Thank you posting a positive review on our site. Best Wishes - Skip and Lisa
