“Wonderful Cozy Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2006

Our stay at Jewel Lake Bed and Breakfast was most enjoyable. Troy, the owner is very accommodating and willing to help you with any questions you might have about the area. He fixes an excellent breakfast. We loved the reindeer sausage. The rooms are very clean and neat. I really loved the front area where you have breakfast. It was really nice sitting and visiting with other travelers who were staying at the B&B. There is easy access to the airport as well as downtown Anchorage. Troy made us feel right at home.

  • Liked — The friendly owner and the food.
  • Disliked — Liked everything about the accommodation.
  • Tips/Secrets — Try this place out I'm sure you'll love it.

The minute we arrived (3am) seeing our room brought smiles to our faces. This B & B has a cabin atmosphere that immediately says "Alaska". Rooms were cozy and comfortable and EXCEPTIONALLLY CLEAN. This is the cleanest best organized B & B that we have ever stayed at.

You will be pampered by the host, Troy, who is always available to assist you with any excursions or travel questions. He cooks every guest an individual breakfast of reindeer sausage, eggs & strawberry waffles and much more.

We appreciated the convenience of being able to purchase a beverage, chips, etc. that he had available in the kitchen. We found the location great, and never heard any noise from any traffic.

  • Liked — The cleanliness, the rustic interior, and the fabulous service!
  • Disliked — There was nothing not to like.
  • Tips/Secrets — There is a fully equipped kitchen and you can barbeque and cook for yourselves if you like.

Great Location from airport. Full breakfast in the morning. Some rooms are in the downstairs area but are nice and large. B&B was very clean and comfortable to be in. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Jewel lake is fine if you want to be close to the airport, but as a B&B, i didn't think it was anything special. The room we were in was tiny, dining area cramped. The hosts were nice, and the food was fine, but I was very turned off by the "store" in the living room, selling everything from snacks to Alaska merchandise. There is also NO LAKE, lest anyone else make this mistake. It is on Jewel Lake road. What I took to be a lake in the website photo was actually a parking lot! =(

, Owner at Jewel Lake Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, June 4, 2006
I'm very sorry to think I was on a lake. There are no pictures of lakes on my website or any discription of a lake. Jewel Lake is a 5 minute walk from here. The "STORE" is easy to explain. Many many guests arrive very late at night (early am) People are always thanking me for having snacks around the house then.. and also in the afternoons. The Alaskan gifts are on a 2x2 table in the cornor of the living room. They are all homemade items that you can not find other places. I have never asked anyone to even look at them.. they are just there. The other items for sale are toiletry items that people forget to bring. I have been thanked many times for all of the above items.

And yes.. two of my rooms are small.. and I only put people in them that are staying one night and are aware of the room. My other rooms I think guests will find are just fine. And yes, this property has a half basement.. sorry about that.. but I have made the best of it by placing flower boxes out both windows of the rooms. Since 1999 I have had many many return customers. I am sorry to think that someone left feeling unhappy. Wish they would have said so.

Jewel Lake B&B is close to the airport, the owner is very friendly and the breakfast is good. The B&B is right on a main street and the traffic can be loud. Also, some of the rooms are in the basement of the home, so if you do not want to sleep in the basement, confirm location of the room when making your reservation.

This was one of our first experiences with a bed and breakfast. The owner/manager was friendly, helpful and makes a great breakfast. The facilities were comfortable, very clean and lots of room inside and out. All that we expected. Thought we got a good value. 5 minutes from the airport, 15 mins. from downtown Anchorage.
