Bed and Breakfast Lodging in Unalakleet, Alaska – An Inviting Hotel Alternative
Unalakleet is less than 150 miles from Nome, AK. The meaning of the name of this village is “southernmost one.” Indeed, it is the southernmost town of its region and is a hub to other bush villages.
Located on Norton Sound, this town boasts remnants of dwellings that archaeologists have linked to the period from 200 B.C to 300 A.D. The 1830s brought the first trading post here, and reindeer herders soon followed. At one time, there was a trade monopoly held by the Indians on the upper river. Learn about all of these fascinating stories, or do some fishing for Arctic Char, Arctic Grayling, Dolly Varden, or a variety of Salmon, while traveling and taking in the beauty of your surroundings. Now it’s a busy bushplane hub, serving smaller villages in the Bering Sea coastal area.
Be sure to ask your BBAA innkeeper for ideas of what to do and see during your stay.
