Why Hunters Love Bach’s B&B

“Caribou hunters from Idaho and Washington D.C. found it challenging to find accommodations that provided any freezer space. They found it and loved it here at Bach’s B&B”

– Glenda Bach, owner of Bach's B&B

Why Rural Alaskans will love Bach’s B&B

Many Alaskans who travel through Anchorage often shop for frozen foods at Costco, often buying meet, game, vegetables at various Anchorage stores. They can shop, place foods into the freezer and pack frozen goods in our large garage just before returning to rural Alaska.

“We caught 60 lbs of fresh halibut on the Kenai Peninsula and had a place to store it so we could tour Denali and make our drive to Fairbanks. When we returned from our Alaska road trip, we collected our precious halibut from Glenda’s freezer just before checking in at the airport on our way back home.”

History of the B&B

About the Hostess

Glenda has numerous exciting life experiences under her belt and will be the perfect hostess for your authentic Alaskan adventure. Having traveled to over 35 sites scattered from Barrow to Sitka, including dozens of remote villages, Glenda is a wealth of information.

She raised her son in Bethel (rural Western Alaska) and owned a commercial fishing permit on the Kuskokwim River (Alaska‘s second largest river, after the Yukon). She raised and trained a sprint dog team of 10 huskies for eight years.

In the ’80s and ’90s when her son, Chris, worked for Alaska‘s Department of Fish and Game, Glenda flew into various remote Yukon River and Bering Sea Fish camps volunteering with Chinook, Sockeye, and Coho salmon counts, data gathering, and cooking for up to 10 crew members.
