The Eider House B&B offers a clean and comfortable getaway in what feels like the wildest area of Alaska. There’s a wide, burbling creek behind the house, just beyond the fire pit, where you can watch for wildlife. The large log home features four spacious rooms, each of which has a private bath. A family of three would be do well in one of their queen bed rooms, along with a rollaway bed. The living room, kitchen, and patio are available to all guests. The owners also have a complete fish cleaning station, and will help you vacuum-pack and freeze whatever you’ve caught. Other amenities include a washer/dryer, free coffee, free Wi-Fi, BBQ grill and fire pit.
The B&B is 6 miles south of the airport, in the small community of Bells Flats. You’ll truly feel like you’re in the wilds of Alaska out here. It’s an easy 10-mile drive into the town of Kodiak to enjoy a wide variety of shops and restaurants. There is no shortage of fine dining establishments serving the freshest Alaskan seafood you’ve ever had. The town hosts several kid-friendly attractions, including the Kodiak Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center and the Kodiak Fisheries Aquarium. For a full day of hiking and history, Fort Abercrombie State Park is only 4 miles north of town. An hour south of your B&B is the famed Fossil Beach. With its beautiful setting and quiet rooms, the Eider House B&B is a good choice for your Alaskan family vacation.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast with wonderful hosts! Would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to Kodiak. Robin and Mike make you feel welcomed. The views outside are breathtaking. You're only 10-15 mins away from town.

Robin and Mike treated me just like family the entire week. Robin even came and picked me up at the airport at the last minute when my car reservation was messed up.
The food at breakfast was perfect with never the same thing served twice in seven days. Breakfast conversations were pleasant with interesting topics about living on the island and things to do, etc.
I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and would never consider staying anywhere else on Kodiak in the future.
