About Jeannine

Owner Jeannine J. is a life-long Alaskan with a love for Hope, Alaska. Jeannine describes Hope as 'a magical place' where everyday life seems distant and calm.

Why Jeannine chose Anchorage

Hope is a unique and unhurried town featuring a historic district which looks and feels like the gold mining town Hope was in the 1800s. Residents and visitors can hike the mountains or fish the nearby streams, Wander through the historical museum and original log cabins, peer in the 100+ year old social hall, sip an Alaskan brew at the 100 year old pub at the shore of Turnigan Arm. The views are lovely, the mountains spectacular, and the Alaskans who live here are grand.

Awesome place! We only stayed one day but wished we would have stayed longer. Close to town, and had everything you could need.

Beautiful area cozy stay

  • 4 of 5

The area is amazing, the cabin is cute and worked out great for 7 of us. We had just a few concerns but nothing we couldnt handle. Just be prepared when you get out there is is quite aways from the grocery but who needs food when you can live off Alaska beauty

Great stay in Hope!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for two nights and it was a great stay. We made pancakes the first morning and had an outing to Whittier. Although we didn't venture into the town of Hope much, it was nice to have a private place to come home to. We used the fire pit and enjoyed the use of the kitchen, coffee machine, and dining table. Thanks so much!

Great space, but few amenities and tough sleeping setup.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location (right near downtown hope) and the number of beds available, but the beds were very loud (so much so that one guest slept downstairs on the couch), and the provided breakfast materials were a bit lackluster. There were dry goods (pancake and oatmeal mix, etc.), but no perishable goods, and we wish a greater description of these goods was available. For one night, however, the house was suitable and despite having only one bathroom, we had a nice evening.

Owner's Response: Dear Garner, I am sorry to hear that the beds were not up to your standard. I will definitely check on that, as we've never received that feedback before. As you discovered, since there is no local grocery store, the breakfast items are kept in great quantities. This is why we are only able to provide non-perishable foods and coffee. A full list of these items are available on our website. We do wish you great travels!
