There are several good B&Bs and motel rooms besides those listed below, including the Nugget Inn (tel. 877/443-2323 or 907/443-4189). Staying at a B&B makes sense, as your host can introduce you to the community in a less contrived way than a formal tour company. The visitor center and their website can provide information on them.
