About us & what others have said about us

House on the Rock B and B is operated by Bill & Lorna Wise.  The name for our Valdez bed and breakfast is based on the verse and song: "The wise man built his house on the Rock." 

We both are well traveled and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.  We love Valdez Alaska and the beautiful scenery and the ability to stock our freezer with fish and game.

Since we love meeting new friends so much, we wanted to make our Valdez Alaska lodging be the most appealing place to stay in Valdez, and better than the other bed & breakfasts and hotels in Valdez Alaska.  We often have our new friends up for dinner because we want to get to know you. 

We want you to be able to relax in comfort and enjoy the beauty.  That’s why we purchased a massage chair, and work hard to make our flower beds beautiful.
You can't beat that for a Valdez, Alaska bed and breakfast, or even the Valdez Alaska hotels.  Once you've stayed with us, we're sure you'll agree that you stayed at the best bed and breakfast.

You will enjoy many beautiful flowers in the flower pots and flower beds on the grounds of House on the Rock B & B, because we want you to enjoy the beauty.

Some beautiful delphinium and a hanging flower pot in the front of our house.

5 of 5 stars.  
My son Joshua and I came over to Valdez to meet with a few customers and although we considered camping, the rain convinced us we wanted a warm dry place and it was a blessing to find "House on the Rock B & B" Very clean and comfortable and we were made to feel like family.  I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Valdez.  Cheers from the Sundog crew.

Stayed August 2013, traveled on business.

Had a great time. 

Our stay at House on the Rock B & B was great in newly remodeled and very clean home in a quiet residential neighborhood. The Alaskan theme rooms are nicely decorated and each room has a private bathroom with shower and flat screen TV. A shared kitchen and living room just for the guests has a bonus of a massage chair in the living room. The owners were friendly and helpful and the twin girls shared an enthusiastic demonstration of the dance they did for Gold Rush Days Celebration.

Wise Family,
    Thank you so much for the room again and for the kindness your family always shows me.  ... I'm sure I will see you again in the future.

Sincerely,  Travis

Hi Bill and Lorna
I so appreciate your hospitality. You certainly went out of your way to make me feel welcome and comfortable at your beautiful B & B.  I loved the nice family atmosphere.  The immaculate kitchen, dinning area, and living room made me feel right at home; and the massage chair was better than home.
It was also great having a clean convenient laundry room instead of having to go to a Laundromat.
I really appreciated that everything was so clean.  The carpets seem brand new, but without that new chemical smell.  I usually don't feel comfortable sleeping in a motel bed, but your extra soft sheets, blanket, comforter, and new fluffy pillows made me feel pampered.  The bedding was soft, warm and cozy, without being heavy.
Thank you for giving me the option of buying my own groceries and using the B&B  refrigerator and freezer space; and of preparing my own meals in the microwave and toaster oven, whenever I chose to.  Thanks also for the tips of where to eat out when I wanted to.
The local maps and suggestions of places to check out during my stay in Valdez were very helpful.
I probably would have missed some of Valdez's great museums, and  nice walking trails on my own. 
Thanks for telling me about the many community events that go on in Valdez that I could participate in.  A highlight, was a free concert with a free outdoor buffet that included freshly caught salmon, and a view of the snow capped mountains and beautiful waters of Prince William Sound.
You are great hosts.  I had never before been invited to have dinner at a bed and breakfast, but you invited me upstairs to your part of the house to eat dinner with your family.  Your smoked salmon dip tasted much better than any I had ever tasted.  It was quite apparent that your children are proud of your special recipe and their part in helping catch the fish for the family's food supply.  I really felt privileged that I got to share in a meal that the main course was some moose that Bill had bagged on one of his hunting trips. I can see that hunting and fishing is not just for fun in your family.  It is a big part of each year's food supply.  Thank you for the delicious meal topped off with Alaska's classic Moose Tracks,  and Caribou Caramel ice cream for desert. I had a delightful time with you sharing a delicious meal and stories of your travels throughout the world and in Alaska. 
You really helped make my Valdez experience a memorable one.  Because of one of your inside tips, I even got to see and film a bear up close, eating salmon.  My friends and family are quite impressed when I show them my iPad videos of bears.
