Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay: Stay in the heart of Anchorage and enjoy Alaska’s beauty at the Copper Whale Inn Bed & Breakfast! The state’s natural heritage is celebrated in the pictures on the walls and can be seen through almost every window of this unique downtown inn. The Copper Whale Inn Bed & Breakfast is in the heart of historic Anchorage, close to the city’s many restaurants, art galleries, museums and other attractions. Our west-side location gives us amazingviews of Cook Inlet, Sleeping Lady and the Alaska Range, as well as easy access to the 16-mile Coastal Trail. We offer binoculars in the Living Room for guests to use to spot some of our amazing wildlife, including bald eagles and beluga whales. Glen Hemingson, our innkeeper, is also available to answer questions and offer suggestions for local activities while you’re in Anchorage and South Central Alaska. The Copper Whale Inn B&B is one of the few structures to survive the 1964 Anchorage earthquake. The inn has been recently remodeled, and contrasts favorably with nearby downtown office buildings. The inn also offers lush gardens in the summer season. Our 14 guest rooms are both comfortable and inviting, and our roomy common area is warmed by a stone fireplace. Comfort, convenience and natural beauty all combine to create a relaxing retreat for travelers from around the world. We hope you will join us at the Copper Whale in beautiful Anchorage, Alaska!
