Built in 1904, The George / Davis House, now The Dining Inn, is listed as one of Juneau’s finest historic homes. The Inn offers all the amenities you’d expect of an upmarket hotel, but with the style and feel of an exclusive private home. The Dining Inn is nestled at the base of Mt Juneau overlooking the picturesque town of Juneau itself. The inn is comprised of 3 floors, the 1st floor is my home, the 2nd floor can be rented as either a 3 bedroom apartment, a 2 bedroom family suite, or as an individual room and the 3rd floor is designed to be rented as a 3 bedroom apartment only. Each floor provides a well-appointed full kitchen, living and dining areas for 6-8, and Wi-Fi throughout. Of the 3 bedrooms on each floor, two are queen size and the third has a twin/full bunk bed (perfect for children). Each floor has a spacious bathroom with Jacuzzi bath tub. On the 2nd floor there is an additional full bathroom, accessible to all guests, to accommodate busy times of the day. Décor and Furnishings have been selected to ensure guests experience maximum comfort and relaxation in luxurious, tasteful surroundings. The walls are adorned with local native artwork and much of the antique furniture dates back to when the house was originally built. The Inn also has its’ own “mini-gym” with Bowflex all-in-one weight/workout equipment and a Schwinn electronic stationary bike with heart monitor. There is also a state-of-the-art steam washer and dryer and 7 cubic foot chest freezer for everybody’s use, particularly convenient for storing your catch-of-the day
At any time of the day you are welcome to relax in the 1st floor sunroom, while watching children and pets play in Capitol School Park. You can also relax in the fenced backyard (to keep small pets in and bears out) with herb garden, outdoor deck, fire pit, propane area heater and fantastic gas barbecue for all to enjoy. Small pets (under 20lbs) are welcome upon approval.
The Dining Inn is said to be the first “official” Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) in this small town and is owned and operated by Australian, Deborah Bowes. Deborah has worked in the hospitality and tour business for many years here in Juneau. She is happy to help you plan and book your holiday adventures, either before or during your stay. Deborah is also an experienced gourmet cook and would love to discuss preparing a delicious meal for any special occasion.
Be a Traveler and not just a Tourist; experience Alaska on a much more personal level. Come and enjoy being a part of The Dining Inn’s inaugural summer season and take home memories of a life time.

What a great house. Deborah Bowes, the owner, has used her uncanny design sense to meticulously renovate this three story piece of Juneau history. Every nook, every cranny is a useful, beautiful space and our two families were able to unpack everything for a 10 day wedding event and put the luggage in a storage space! We had the charming 3 bedroom, third story apartment with views across "Chicken Scratch Park" to the impressive sheer mountain faces that shoot up above the house. All the features in this house are extremely well thought out and executed from a quiet hot water on demand system to well oiled doors and a terrific little kitchen. Our fellow wedding guests drooled over the convenient, fun location of the Inn. Ms. Bowes has even been able to utilize her outdoor space to create a welcoming garden and terrace...we hosted a dinner for 12 outdoors with the stellar help of the Inn staff. The only reason I did not give this space a five star was that it was still under construction so there are plenty of wonderful additions to review next trip. The only downside we could see was that there are quite a few steps to negotiate which for Juneaueans is part of life in the mountains by the sea.
