The Voyageur is 11th Avenue B and B's newest addition. We renovated the bedroom and bath (and actually the whole top and bottom floor) of the historic original 1930's cottage at the front of the property. The room features a queen sized bed, plush carpet, double closets and courtyard views. The adjacent private bath has new cherry cabinets, Nettuno Gold granite and a deep, beautiful single-person soaking tub. Robes, wi-fi, off-street parking, a five-star hot breakfast each morning, and more are also part of the package.
More about us. We've been described as an urban oasis, and are just a five minute walk to the heart of the city.

I'm Marilyn. I was born and raised in Alaska and have traveled extensively here as well as elsewhere. I own and operate the 11th Avenue B and B. I love it. It's truly a mission with me to host people as I wish to be hosted, and to provide the best quality accommodations, hospitality and service in the business. I think it's important that tired travelers out and about on business or leisure pursuits have a soft spot to land at the end of the day and I make sure that's the case for my guests. They love the little extras and attention to detail that they find here. The 11th Avenue B and B is not the cheapest in town, but it is one of the best. I look forward to seeing you soon!
