Stephanie and her husband, Raymond, run this quaint little place in town. They are super happy to have guests and will do what they can to accommodate you and make your stay comfortable.
Their place is located close to the airport (okay, let’s face it … they are!) and within walking distance to restaurants (although they all deliver these days).

Jean at Bibbers is an amazing lady, who will absolutely take great care of you while you’re at her place. She is VERY strict on certain things like NO shoes in the house, keeping things tidy and runs a tight ship. She’s also one of the most interesting lady’s you’ll ever meet – she’ll talk your ear off and tell you all kinds of great stories if you have the time.
She’s somewhat hard to get in touch with sometimes, but rest assured, if she tells you she has room for you and your group, you’re in good hands.
Sue is a wonderful lady who works very hard to keep her customers happy – the great thing about her place is it’s attached to a little restaurant next door. No need to find a place to eat, as it’s all right there.
Cute, quaint and plenty doable …. super great lady who will always do what she can to assist.
Greta is a long standing resident of Kotzebue and has a couple of different options for her B&B.
She’s relatively new to the AirBnB thing, but is always happy to help and has a good cozy, comfy place for our clients to hang their hat for the night.
