A Mooseberry Inn – The Bed and Breakfast That Converted Me :)

By Kenin Bassart @Constantramble

A Mooseberry Inn in Tok, Alaska was the first bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. Kenin and I traveled for many years and stayed in everything from a tent to the Ritz Carlton. Somehow, we managed to completely avoid B&Bs altogether. We always thought the idea of a B&B was a little odd.  This is the bed and breakfast that converted me.

There was something a little intimidating about staying in someone’s home and sharing your space with others. Sitting down to breakfast at a table surrounded by strangers was daunting. The possibility of sharing a bathroom was down right nerve wrecking. My thoughts on the matter of B&B’s were ” if I wanted to share my space, and feel at home, I could just as well have stayed at home”!
On our road trip from Florida to Alaska, Kenin and I had to stop in Tok, AK for a night. October is the beginning of winter in that area and there were not many places open for the season that would accept us with our dogs. I found A Mooseberry Inn online and sent an email to the owner, Maggie Brooks letting her know about our travels and our dogs. She replied to me immediately, letting me know that we were more than welcome to stay at her B&B in Tok.

I was still a little hesitant to stay at a bed and breakfast, but I wasn’t left with much of a choice. We pulled the GTI into the Mooseberry’s driveway in the early evening feeling a little apprehensive but welcoming a place to rest our heads for the night. We were exhausted! The driveway was surprisingly free of snow. Apparently, the snow plows go all the way up to the edge of the Mooseberry Inn’s property line which made for very easy access for us and easy access for our dogs as well.

Maggie and Damon (the inn’s proprietors) were out when we arrived, but they left us a note saying to enter and make ourselves comfortable. They were hot beverages and snacks waiting for us and our room was ready.
