The beauty of the accommodations was matched by the warm hospitality of the owners. Very knowledgeable, interesting couple with wonderful culinary skills! To stay in a place that oozes history was a real treat! As were the delicious breakfasts made by Van and Bill! Came for one night and stayed for 4, and I am hoping to return in March... More

Alaska Heritage House is a wonderful place, inside and out, with a great history--which Van (your hostess) will relate to you. The House dates back to 1916, and its oak flooring, fixtures and furniture are original or faithful to the time period, except--happily--the mattresses, which are comfortably modern, and the heating system (although the original hot water radiators are still...

Where can we start? The house is beautiful inside. Lots of history in this house. Van has the complete story (which by the way is very interesting to hear) of the history house. She gave us a quick tour of the rooms that were vacant and they were all gorgeous. Nothing bad to say about this place. The gourmet breakfast... More

Walked into the Alaska Heritage House and felt like we had stepped back in time - Victorian, gold-rush era, beautiful house! My husband and I fell into crisp white sheets and enjoyed the claw foot tub after a long flight to Alaska. The room and bathroom were immaculate and cozy at the same time. Breakfast was 5-star quality and hearty,... More

Pros: The decorations and furniture and the history behind it. Also the nice and friendly hosts. This is an awesome place. Love every single piece of furniture in here. The hosts are warm and welcoming. Even their dog was so cute and friendly. Definitely will stay over there again next time.

We stayed here for Christmas during 2012. Valerie was super helpful and nice. The room is comfortable. Three of us lived in Chena River room at that time. The location is good, which is close to train station.

The decor is a little outdated, but this place is so charming. The host, Van, was super nice and full of bits and pieces of history! Her breakfast was delicious!! I absolutely loved it. The location is also amazing as it is a 5 minute walk from worthwhile restaurants and most of the attractions in town. We were there on... More

If they have a higher rating then a 5 then the Alaska Heritage House deserves it. If you want a place that not only has the historic beauty but also makes you feel as if you were home. The owners Van and Bill are not only informative, they are friendly and helpful 24/7. They made my stay very comfortable and... More
