This B&B offers a newly-built suite of rooms that are perfect for a large family wanting an extended stay to explore the area. You’ll find two queen beds and two twin beds, a spacious living room, a fully equipped kitchen, and a host of other amenities, including free Wi-Fi, DVD player and a library of books and DVDs. Ingredients for a free continental breakfast are stocked in the refrigerator each night, but you’re also welcome to load up on groceries in the nearby town of Glennallen.
The B&B is conveniently located just off the Richardson Highway, about 15 miles north of Glennallen, where you’ll find a small number of restaurants and a couple of good-sized grocery stores. You’re close to five major recreational rivers in the area. All of them are renowned for salmon fishing and rafting. Stop by the Copper River Valley Visitor’s Center in Glennallen to get started on your adventures. They’ll help you find guides and outfitters for almost any activity. Or explore on your own in the nearby Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, where you can view wildlife, hike endless trails, or tour an old ghost town. With its spacious apartment-style rooms and convenient location, the Copper River Country B&B is a good choice for any family vacation to Alaska.

What a perfect find! This accommodation is a little different to the normal B&B as the accommodation is totally separate from the main house. Copper River consists to two houses with a choice of private bathroom or shared facilities. The kitchen is very well set up with every possible item you would need to prepare a meal. Breakfast provisions; cereals, juice, fruit, yoghurt, variety of tea and coffee, eggs, bacon etc. there was space for storing your own supplies and also the opportunity to cook evening meals.
Our host Quinn, took time to carefully explain the layout of the house, importantly the layout of the kitchen and stressed to call if we needed anything.
We were encouraged to take the short five minute walk to the river to view the salmon wheels and to watch net fishing. Great memories as we had not seen either form of fishing before. An extremely memorable overnight stay which was certainly one of the highlights of our Alaskan holiday.
Generous and comfortable accommodation with a well stocked larder for guests to use. Quin is an excellent hostess. A short walk to the Copper River. The out door decking is a perfect place for a barbecue.
