TravelPod Member ReviewsDenali Dome Home Bed and Breakfast Healy
We hired a car from Ann and were so pleased with her service and hospitality that we will definitely hire again and probably stay with them in the Dome Home B & B if we are ever here again

We made it to the Dome Home around 9 and quickly were relieved to see a beautiful home and yard. We met Terry and he showed us around the main living areas and also told us it was an Alaskan custom to not wear shoes in the house so he showed us where to leave our shoes. Our room was just beautiful and we were so excited.

Historical Traveler Reviews Denali Dome Home Bed and Breakfast Healy
A Dome away from Home
Only about 15 minutes from the entrance to Denali National Park, I have to say that my experience was between "Above Average" and "Excellent." I hate giving straight "Excellent" because there is always something that can use improvement. Terry and Ann were very hospitable and helped my adult son and I out at their own initiative whenever they saw the need. I rate Ann "Most Excellent" to adopt a phrase from Bill and Ted. The food conjured up by Terry was very good as was the assortment. My bedroom at the very top floor was spacious yet a bit unique and more suited for a husband and wife in that there was an open bathroom; however, my son and I worked out our manly differences. The setting was excellent with wild life venturing into the back yard... yes... a bull moose arrived in time for photos, and because this B&B was some distance off the Park Highway, it was a bit quieter than other places that I have stayed. Truly... this was a very acceptable Dome away from Home!

Great Bed and Breakfast
We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights at the Denali Dome Home. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfasts, cooked to order by Terry, were delicious.
The location is very convenient to Denali National Park and is much more pleasant than staying amid the commercial congestion at the entrance to the park.
We had interesting conversations with the other guests--nice to have a big room where anyone who wants to can socialize and share experiences from the day in Denali.
The only improvement I suggest is to add a WiFi network so guests can use their own notebook computers to access the internet.
Wonderful Bed & Breakfast
This a beautiful B & B nearby Denali National Park in Healy, Alaska. They have 7 rooms available. Price is very reasonable as compared to other B & B's in the area, especially since you get a home cooked meal by the owners every morning. They offer a beautiful home that is open to the guests with free internet access and lots of first hand info on places to go and eat. A 10 minute drive to the park. The owners are VERY hospitable and friendly. I would highly recommend it. Denise & Al from Livonia,MI
We are two young adults (28!) from New York, who love the high-life of the city, but also appreciate a much-needed retreat from the metropolis. The Denali Dome Home was the perfect place for us to get away. It was affordable, comfortable, and relaxing. Terry & Ann (the hosts) were warm, delightful, and conversive, but never intrusive and knew when we wanted to have time to ourselves. They were very responsive to all of our requests -- all we needed to do was ask.
The Dome Home is an architectural beauty (get the room on the top!), and just a quick 11-mile drive from the Denali National Park Entrance. It is also conveniently located for a pleasant 2-hour drive to Fairbanks for a day of dog-mushing and sight-seeing.
Breakfast was the perfect start a day of hiking. Nothing fancy -- just a generous helping of eggs & sausage, fresh fruit, granola, and all the coffee you can drink. What more do you need? And there were always cookies in the cookie jar and hot cocoa available for us when we came home.
We had a terrific overall experience at the Dome Home, and we will definitely return here to stay during our next visit to Denali!
Not the best but not the worst B&B
My in-laws booked the Dome Home B&B for 3 nights, which is just outside the Denali National Park by about 11 miles. There are closer accomodations but the B&B was a nice home. We had an upstairs room right off the stairs. The host spent about 5 minutes telling us that we were not allowed in the kitchen during breakfast and to stay out of the cooks way. The hosts also have 2 black Scottish Terriers. Cute dogs but if you plan on sleeping in, forget it. Each morning the host(s) would let them out around 6:45-7:00AM and they would immediately start barking. To our chagrin, the host would then yell at the dogs to shut up and whistle at them to come back inside.
They put out croissants and muffins and fruit that they purchase from Cosco and the cook will make your choice of pancakes(had them the first morning and would not recommend them.) French toast, which was fine and eggs any style. My wife had scrambled eggs and only took a few bites. I noticed other people who ordered scrambled eggs did not eat much of them so the eggs aren't too great either. Might be becasue the cook uses a liberal amount of margarine to coat the frying pan. They also have cold cereal about 4 different choices plus oatmeal. The second night the hosts had an argument with their daughter who is in HS, so that was not pleasant.
The rooms are nice size and the bed was comfortable and quite time starts at 10PM. They have a computer with internet access that you can use too. My in-laws enjoyed the stay but I would stay elsewhere next time.
Excellent and nice people - Good Value
The hosts make you feel like family. They have all the amenities you could ask for and more than I have ever encountered in a B+B. Of course there is breakfast but there is tea and cocoa and juice available at all times. Several computers for internet exploration, and Ann makes phone calls to find where people have recently seen wildlife. They have two adorable scotties - who will melt even the most ardent dog hater. They are absolutely the friendliest dogs but don't jump or behave in any way badly. The setting is perfect and the people are wonderful. Good clean well appointed rooms each with private bath.
Definately would repeat again.
My Parents Love It, I Did Not
This was my parents' (65) first experience at a B&B. The host was extremely accomodating to my folks - my mom has mobility issues. HOWEVER, I reserved a room with two beds for myself and my friend, was guarenteed a room with two beds, and when we got there, he had given out all the rooms with two beds. That left me sharing a queen bed with a very large friend. Not a happy two nights.
To top it off, check out is at 11. My friend and I had been traveling on a tight schedule for several days before picking up my mom and dad at the cruise port in Whittier. We had counted on being able to sleep in the morning of checkout in order to catch up on some sleep. AT 8:45 AM WE WERE ASKED TO VACATE OUR ROOM SO THE MAID COULD CLEAN IT!!!! I was livid.
If not for the wonderful experience my parents had here, I would've rated this place Terrible. I'd suggest this place only to seniors, and even then with trepidation. Too many other great places around.
What a Lovely Treat!
I can't say enough about the beauty of the rooms and the congenial hosts. Terry & Ann are fantastic! Terry got up early just to cook us a hot breakfast before we left for the park. Instead of checking out at 11 am, he let us come back, shower & change after white water rafting after 12:30. The Dome is the greatest and makes a trip to Denali a greater experience. Terrific food- all fresh and cooked to your order.
Great Alaska Welcome
Found an interesting review on this sight--someone from New York.
sounded kind of sour, so we thought a note of correction in order. Our stay here was great. Good conversation, good company, good breakfasts.
Ann and Terry Miller were great hosts and we learned a bit more about Alaskan life from them.
I did not find the hosts to be very friendly. They acted like we were unwelcome house guests. The house is very beautiful and unique. At breakfast, the host didn't say a word to us, only talked to the elderly couple next to us. When we got up to gather our things and catch our veryearly bus to Denali, the host said," Well, you'll have to pay NOW".
It was very embarassing. Of course I wasn't going to run out on the bill! Don't bother with this place.

We disembarked the ship at Whittier at 7.45am and boarded in the Nenana carriage on the Princess Rail. We were welcomed by Colleen our carriage guide, and Abby our bar tender.

Alaskan Saying; The weather is sh....er in Whittier.
Yes, we agree.
Luckily we were prepared for the unpredictable Alaskan weather so donned our waterproof trousers and jackets as we left the ferry and waited for our train to arrive. Whittier is a small, remote place with only one train a day to Anchorage. It slowly travels a scenic …
... As we drove closer to Fairbanks, the countryside changed, getting greener with taller and thicker trees, and grass on the roadside. We arrived at Riverview RV on the Chena River - beautiful setting. Leslie, the host, explained all the things to see and do in Fairbanks, including maps and brochures. We set up camp, had a light dinner and watched a little TV. I made plans for tomorrow and it was time to turn ...

Had a good lunch on site at Morino's Grill on site with cold boxed sandwiches like the airport, a Starbucks, a hot food area with burgers (reindeer meat as well), hot panini sandwiches, chili, and soups. Mom had the vegetarian panini with waffle fries that were yummy. I had the vegetarian chili in sourdough bowl -- fine. Had the Alaskan Summer Ale -- didn't like but not much of a beer ...

"Nan" was pretty good at watching for wildlife and we were rewarded with another fox sighting (and better prepared for it). We saw caribou a couple of times and one of them was reasonably close to the bus for an OK picture if it would have just lifted its head. We supposedly saw a brown bear again in about the same place as in the morning but, just as in the morning, it was so far away that photographic evidence that we ...
