Dan and Mary open their home so you become part of the family! Super nice people who make your stay feel like home. Together they make a great breakfast to get you going and local knowledge of sights to see with many local contacts to give you a personal touch as well. We took our grandson to Alaska for his senior trip and had a blast on ATV’s, river rafting, glacier explorations and much more Highly recommend and hope to come back soon.
We stayed 3 nights, the beds are so comfortable it was just what we needed after a long day of fishing! Mary makes a great cup of coffee and was so helpful planning our trip, she really made things easy on us. She had great recommendations for things to do and restaurants to try as well. This is a nice quiet house in a beautiful area. We will definitely stay again!
This was a wonderful place. Mary and Dan are fantastic hosts. Excellent food and company. We felt right at home and welcome. The bedrooms are comfortable and the living room provided plenty of relaxation. We really enjoyed getting to know Mary and Dan and will return for another visit.
We truly felt at home while here, playing with Lucas helped us with being away from our own dog. Dan and Mary were more than accommodating, plenty of travel tips, excellent food, and an altogether cozy and laid-back atmosphere made Jarvi a place of rest and relaxation the whole time we were there. The proximity of JHS to downtown anchorage and the Chugach makes for an easy time being a tourist. Downtown Anchorage, Whittier, Alyeska, and a walk across a frozen lake to Portage Glacier were all an easy drive away.
This is our third visit at Jarvi Homestay. Excellent food. Great location. Mary, Dan and Lucas make you feel like family. Looking forward to more visits to Jarvi Homestay. Plan to return next year for a longer stay.
