Barb Claspill, one of the owners of the property, had always dreamed of owning a bed and breakfast. When she finally was able to purchase one of her own, she personalized the décor of each room by using things she had collected from years spent traveling. 

Denali Touch of Wilderness Bed and Breakfast Inn opened for business in the year of 1991. Since that time, it has grown from a small project with no electricity and very basic amenities to what it is today, a ten-room bed and breakfast with a variety of amenities. The staff enjoys meeting new people and learning about their different stories. They strive to help anyone who requires assistance, and they hope that those who stay with them will enjoy their experiences while they explore their area of Alaska.
