Love the Mermaid's Lair

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Kodiak for work and loved my stay at the Mermaid's Lair. The room was decorated very nice, the view was fantastic, the bed was super comfortable and I appreciated all of the little extras. Gina couldn't have been more accommodating and nice. I will definitely book with Gina again when I return to Kodiak.

Awesome Stay At the Memaid's Lair in Kodiak

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mermaid's Lair in Kodiak in mid-August. I can't say enough good things about this B&B. The views were unbelievable and the location was very convenient. Most of all, the host were extremely accommodating and went out of their way to make our stay special. Can't wait to book another stay on our next visit.

3 Sisters Stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view of Kodiak channel! Lovely and fun Mermaids Lair big enough for 3 adults, with clean comfortable beds (even the twin fold out was very comfortable.) Friendly, helpful innkeeper. We wouldn't recommend this property for infirm, as the stairs are quite steep, and the footed bathtub is not an easy in and out. Lovely stay, would return, when in Kodiak.

Gracious Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Mermaid's Liar after a 9 day backcountry trip- with its stellar view, beautiful bath and the warm welcome and gracious hospitality of owners- it was a wonderful place to transition to re-entry. Convenient to the Kodiak downtown hub- we were carless but found it was an easy walk from staying somewhere sweet with a neighborhood feel to any wanted amenity.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My roommate and I stayed at Awesome Views B&B four nights and loved it. The view really was awesome and the room clean with super comfortable bed and sleeper sofa. Our room was the Mermaid's Lair which was decorated to reflect the Hawaiian colors and ideas. The location made it easily accessible to the road that leads to everywhere on Kodiak Island. The bathroom has a beautiful, but very high, claw foot tub. Both of us are short so getting in and out was a challenge. Even with this slight difficulty, we would stay in the Mermaid's Lair again.
