A convenient location and the  waterfront views are the main reasons to pick Waterfront Bed & Breakfast. Waterfront is actually an understatement: this B&B sits on piling out over the water. It’s practically next door to the Alaksa Marine Highway System terminal, so if you come by ferry you won’t even need a cab. The five comfortable guest rooms are appointed with heavy, mission-style oak furniture. Some rooms have queen-sized beds, some have double beds, and all the beds have down comforters. In nice weather sit out on the broad deck and watch the arrivals and departures of floatplanes, fishing boats, and the state ferry. The hostess prepares big, hearty Alaskan breakfasts (biscuits and gravy, pancakes, sausage-and-egg casseroles) that are included in the price of the room. If you like, she'll fix you dinner as well (that costs more). It's an easy walk to the restaurants in town, or you can use the house kitchen to cook for yourselves. In foul weather, or whenever the spirit moves you, you can retreat to the hot tub.
