Thanks Ruth and Allan,
we enjoyed our stay.
Allan and Ruth made us feel very welcome. They offered great suggestions of things to do and places to eat in Juneau. Allan has extensive knowledge of many of the trails in the area. We felt lucky that Allan was able to accompany us on one of our hikes. He even gave us a little post-hike tour of Juneau. Our room was very comfortable and it was nice to take a dip in the hot tub after so much walking. Our review would be incomplete if we failed to mention how much we enjoyed the company of Ruth and Allan's sweet dog, Shadow.
We enjoyed our stay at Fern Glen immensely! Ruth was very helpful throughout the vacation planning with excellent recommendations of sightseeing and the best companies to use. Her home is comfortable,clean and perfectly located midway between the airport and Juneau. I have never slept in a more comfortable bed! It was great having a hot tub to relax after a rainy day of touring. Especially when the back yard view is so lovely. We would definitely recommend this location, and Ruth, herself, to anyone traveling to Juneau.
Fern Glen House is an excellent place to stay while in Juneau! It's clean, decorated nicely, and conveniently located. Most importantly, the host is wonderful. She greeted us warmly, gave us a thorough orientation to the place, and generously shared home with us. The bedroom itself is located on the first floor, with a private bathroom, foyer, and laundry facilities. The main living space, which the host shared, was above it. It was nice to have privacy while still maintaining connection to the rest of the beautiful home. I heartily recommend this lodging! Thank you, Ruth, for a great experience!
Ruth and Allan were ready to greet me when I arrived and were throoughly helpful and cheerful throughout my stay. This was my first visit to Alaska and I appreciated the emails before hand regarding getting to their house, to the ferry etc. I did not rent a car and Ruth was careful to show me the bus routes and times. She offered me a ride into town when she was going and was helpful in arranging the early cab to the ferry dock. The room was comfortable and large and the bath was pleasant and just down the hall. One feels like a welcome guest in a very nice home. In addition, I got to chat and learn about life in Alaska, why people live here and the challenges and privileges of this rugged country.
Very pleasant stay. The hosts were friendly, knowledgable and helpful.
Our rental car died the first morning we were there and Allan helped us jump it right away so we didn't end up losing too much time.
House is on a quiet street which was nice and we thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi. Thanks for your hospitality!
Great trip to Juneau and so thankful for the graciousness of Ruth and Allen. Their home was lovely, they provided helpful info and directions, and their house was very centrally located to all that we did. (A very comfy bed was much appreciated after our long days.) A terrific first airbnd experience. Thank you so very much.
