“Felt like home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stay at B&B's for the experience, and there was no shortage of that here.

Dee (the Innkeeper) is what makes this place great. She'll take care of you in any way she possibly can.

If you need a mom, a grandma, a friend, a conversation, a tour guide, a host...Dee is all those and more.

Breakfast is served to suit your schedule, not hers, and the food was very good.

Our room was very clean, very tastefully decorated (as was the whole B&B), and very comfortable.

We had read the reviews of Alaska House of Jade and chose it based on the high reviews. We were not disappointed. We loved Dee and Ives. They were friendly and extremely hospitable. Comfortable rooms. Plenty of space. Large bathrooms. We had a large tub and plenty of space. The breakfast was large and tremendous. We loved the experience and will stay there again. I will recommend this to anyone staying in Anchorage. This is a great place.

Room Tip: Call early, it fills up fast for a reason.

Hi Stephen and Emily. Thank you for your review of your stay at Alaska House of Jade. It was so nice meeting you both and Alan and Denise as well. We love it when folks stay long enough for us to get to know them a little. We too hope you'll visit again and maybe next time you won't be so busy and will be able to enjoy a glass of wine on the deck. Glad you got to see the bears!

Despite our late arrival past midnight at Dee's B&B, we found a personalized note on the door providing directions to the Denali Suite, which was our room for the evening. After a nice hot shower in the over-sized tub, we were able to get well-rested on the large and comfy king-sized bed. The best part was in the morning though when we finally met Dee. She also happily offered us to sleep in a bit longer given our late arrival and cooked us a fresh hot breakfast of scrambled eggs, mini waffles (light and airy) and, the best part of the day, reindeer sausage (this was so good I ate two full links, minus the bite that my girlfriend managed to eat). Dee even happily tailored the scrambled eggs to be egg whites only for my girlfriend. Don't forget to ask for directions and, hint hint, coupons for activities in and out of Anchorage. Dee happily went out of her way to make our stay more enjoyable. Oh, did I mention the delicious reindeer sausage? Be sure to make this at least one stop here in Anchorage (this is only 15 minutes from the Ted Stevens International Airport) before Dee officially retires!

Room Tip: Check out the rooms online and call Dee and speak to her in person. She might be able to get you a...

Yves picked me up way over at Whittier and took me bicycle riding two of the 3 days I was there. 55 miles total. I would never have found the trails to do so much riding. Great house. Great breakfast. And Dee and Yves really host all their guests. Whatever you needed. Even two nice lunches for me. Just fantastic. Stay at Alaska House of Jade you will be happy. Anchorage's horn of plenty.

Hi Bryan: First let me say how much Yves enjoyed the biking. He especially enjoys it when guests have the time to hit the trails with him. We enjoyed meeting you and sharing our home. We'll look forward to your next visit. Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review. Dee & Yves

We stayed here actually in 2008 and it was fantastic. There were 8 people in our family group and we all had a wonderful experience. Dee went out of her way to accommodate us. Hope to return again!

Hi Debbie (and Ed). Gosh, 2008 - hard to believe that you are just now writing a response. Perhaps you saw us on Facebook and decided to write. Whatever the reason we are delighted that you enjoyed your visit enough to tell others about it.... even if it is 5 years later. I had to do some research to make sure I had the right party. But fortunately I had listed the names of everyone in your party thus I'm pretty sure I have the right Debbie W. You actually stayed with us in August 2007. So it's been 6 years. Yves and I also hope to see you again in the future. All the best to you and again, thanks for remembering us. Dee Memoune

We spent 3 nights at the House of Jade and experienced exemplary service, wonderful food (too much!), great company and the rooms and beds were comfy and beautifully presented. Dee and Yves are terrific hosts and we would all spend time here again in a heart beat.

Hi Jennifer. Thanks for the nice review. We enjoyed meeting you, Linley and Brian. It's always special for us when guests stay more than a quick overnight. It allows us to get to know you a little better. We sincerely appreciate your kind words. Hope to see you again in the future.

While planning our Alaska trip for last summer, we wondered what made House of Jade so popular and highly ranked. Yes, the pictures look good, and our advance contact with innkeepers was easy and professional. Upon our arrival at Alaska House of Jade, however, it all made sense: the warm and friendly welcome from Dee and Yves is totally consistent with the entire vibe of the property. Comfort and extra effort are their specialty, and on the Independence Day weekend we spent at House of Jade we were won over by every aspect of our stay. They noted our anniversary with a bottle of bubbly, Delicious morning meals, and an invitation to join their 4th of July party with friends - including a singalong session - added to this element. And the house full of young people en route to a NOLS course made our stay all the more warm and hospitable. Now every time we watch an episode of the TV show LOST we think of Dee and Yves, since it was during our stay with them that our teenage son discovered DVDs of that show and we've been watching it ever since. As Yves said, "You FOUND LOST here!" Thanks again for taking such good care of us. Enjoy the winter and get ready for a flood of guests next season, all of whom are certain to be as delighted as we were.

Room Tip: The place is roomy so see what they have and enjoy!

Thanks Doug for the glowing review. Sorry for our lateness in responding but we've been enjoying our winter away from Alaska. Sorry you won't be with us again this July 4th. I was truly surprised that Jordy was indeed able to get through the entire season of LOST.... can't remember if he made it through both the first and second seasons or not.... if he missed the 2nd season you'll have to make a return visit I guess - :-)

Thanks again for the consderate and heartwarming review. We enjoyed meting you and sharing our home with you. Hopefully we'll be able to do it again.

Regards, Dee & Yves
