We talk about it every year and never tire of it! The dog sled race - The Iditarod - is soon to take place! Visit their website for up to the minute news, but not before you make your reserverations at Alaska Cottonwood B&B!

The Iditarod honors part of Alaska’s history, when serum was run to Nome when diptheria was epidemic. For a marvelous book about the 1925 event, pick up a copy of The Cruelest Miles. You may not be able to put this one down.

Anchorage has plenty of activities going on during arnd around Iditarod. When you maye your reservation with us, ask about options.

The Last Great Race

Iditarod
It is time for the Iditarod, known as the Last Great Race. You can follow events at the News Center and now, the Iditarod even features Apps! For a follower’s view, try the blog called Eyes on the Trail.

Rondy
Staying in Anchorage before heading north? Consider the Alaska Cottonwood B&B for easy, caring accommodations. We’d love to have your company during Fur Rondy, too! This Winter Festival leads up to the Iditarod with events and reasons for celebration. Play downtown, then come home for a good night’s rest in a quiet, safe B&B. Check our calendar and make your reservations.

A recent note from Visit Anchorage says, “
June is a big month for special events in Anchorage. From sun up to sundown, the first to the 30th, our city is packed with good times and great events. So what exactly do the longest days of summer hold for Anchorage? Almost everything under the sun!”

Visit Anchorage is our convention and visitors’ bureau and it provides excellent assistance to travel planners. Check the “Plan Your Visit” section for information on weather, maps, activities, deals, and other travel tips.

No matter what, plan to stay at Alaska Cottonwood - the place to relax after your 16-hour days of sight-seeting and fun!
