“Taking care of our 16-year old son the day before starting NOLS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

Our 16-year old son enrolled in the National Outdoor Leadership School or just simply NOLS. NOLS highly recommended the Alaskan House of Jade and we contacted Dee, the owner of this Bed & Breakfast to make arrangement for an overnight stay before the Alaska expedition began. When our teenage son flew into Anchorage, he was immediately picked up by the staff. He met other NOLS students and they spent the afternoon hiking in nearby trails - and they saw three moose and their young babies. They were thrilled to see these wildlife. Our son tells us that his room was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The next day, he was given a 5-star breakfast and the staff delivered him to a special location in Anchorage for pickup by a NOLS bus. As his parents, we were worried about our son traveling alone and Dee assured us that "he would be well taken care of." Dee kept her promise and we are truly graceful for her hospitality. NOLS was right about the Alaskan House of Jade - there is the place stay if you ever desire to visit Alaska. Thank you Dee!

Merrick it means a lot to us to have a parent comment about their student's stay with us. This is our 20th season hosting NOLS students and we've enjoyed each and every one of them over the years. We enjoyed having Jonathan stay with us. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Dee & Yves

We recently stayed a total of four nights at the Alaska House of Jade in Anchorage, Alaska. Our hosts, Dee and Yves Memoune warmly welcomed us into their home and loaned us their car our first night to go into town. Dee cooked exceptional breakfasts, taking great care not to prepare the same items each morning. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. All guests were introduced to one another, welcomed back at the end of the day, offered drinks and food while we gathered together in the kitchen, living room or on the deck. We initially stayed 3 nights before leaving for other areas of Alaska and formed such a close bond with these two lovely individuals that we were fortunate enough to be able to stay again when we returned. All their guests were invited to join Dee and Yve at a 4th of July cook-out they were hosting for friends. Never before have we been made to feel more like long time friends returning than as guests at a B&B. We highly recommend their B&B.

Room Tip: The room chosen depends on the size of the family and what is available.

Hi Austin & Betty: It's nice to know that our guests feel like family and at home. We also felt like we'd known you forever and sincerely hope we see you again - if not in Alaska then somewhere else in this wonderful world. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. Until we meet again.... Dee & Yves

Believe ALL the wonderful reviews you read about this B&B! The rooms, the breakfasts, the decor are all top class. But the real difference comes from Dee and Yves. Their ability to welcome everyone into their home is a real gift. Throughout our 3 night stay, I felt more like an invited guest than a paying one. We were welcomed home from each outing, offered food and drink at all times of day, introduced to the other guests and offered the use of a car. Dee and Yves don't just share their house, they share themselves.

Hello Sue & Alma: We really enjoyed meeting you and sharing our home with you. Thank you for taking the time to say such nice things about your visit. Thanks also for the little medical advice - Yves is doing so much better and I loved removing that bandage!! He hasn't been roller blading since. Hopefully we'll see you again one day. Dee & Yves

There's a reason this place is #1 !
Dee and Yves are awesome awesome hosts, and have a beautiful home. Dee gave us great input which helped us plan our trip. Her breakfasts are super yummy, and she let us use the laundry facility, which was a blessing, and so convenient, because we had been traveling a while & that came in so handy.

We stayed at the Sunset Suite, which was perfect. It has its own flat screen tv ! and we were able to catch wimbeldon tennis live !. The attached bath is huge ( has a jacuzzi too, and twin head showers). The suite is downstairs, where there is a second living room , which is awesome.

We had a wonderful time, and i totally recommend this place. It is a home away from home.

We have just returned from 9 fantastic nights at the Alaska House of Jade! It's like coming home. We've stayed here 6 times and love it more each time we come. Dee and Yves are the most gracious hosts and always make our stay comfortable. All the rooms are great, but we now have our favorite if we reserve well in advance. You won't find a better breakfast !! Dee is a fabulous cook!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side are quieter.

Debbie & Keith - after so many visits over these past years, you truly seem like family. It's always fun to hear about Meghan's adventures and to see such a happy family reuniting each year. We hope the reunion does come together next summer. Thanks for the kind words. See you in 2013.

We stayed 3 nights at the Alaska House of Jade in June 2012. What a great way to start off our Alaskan adventure! The rooms were very comfortable - we stayed in the Chugach suite. Dee is a fantastic cook - the breakfasts were the best of all the B&Bs we stayed at during our trip. Dee and Yves made us feel very welcome. In the evenings, the guests are invited to visit with them in the kitchen and to enjoy wine or beer and whatever yummy baked goods were available that day. I would highly recommend Alaska House of Jade to anyone looking for a place to stay while in Anchorage.

I concur totally on the previous reviews. Do not hesitate to stay here. After arriving I was asked if I was hungry and was served one of the best quiches ever (homemade). The breakfast the next morning was top notch! They even let me use their car to pick up a couple items. My traveling partner who arrived later and I were both very impressed. Thank you both again for such a wonderfully memorable (albeit short) visit.

Hello Sharon & Barb: We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We enjoyed meeting both of you and also wish your visit could have been a little longer. The secret to the Quiche is the variety of French (and International) cheese. Glad you liked it!. Hope you enjoyed the cruise. Thanks for taking the time to rate your visit.
Till we meet again.... Dee & Yves
