About the Dining Inn

The House

The George/ Davis House is listed as one of Juneau’s historic sites and structures and was originally built on 5th Street in 1904 for Juneau’s then Chief Draftsman for the Surveyor General Office (Martin George). George was the father of Wallis George, one of the builders of the famous Baranof Hotel. The house was bought by the Davis family in 1927 and when condemned to make way for the Capital School in 1928, was pulled and pushed with man and horse power, up the hill and around the corner to its’ current location on Seward Street. Throughout the renovation and remodel process we have done everything possible to maintain the original ambience and structure of this impressive home.

About the Owner

The Dining Inn is owned and operated by Australian/Alaskan, Deborah Bowes. This is her 1st venture into the accommodation business and she is very excited to welcome visitors into her new home. Bought by her in September of 2012, she has worked hard over the last 12 months to create a unique and exceptional place to stay in Juneau. The Dining Inn is said to be the first “official” Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO) in this small town. Deborah made Juneau her home (with some periods spent back in her home country) after sailing here from Australia on a 94ft yacht back in 1991. She has worked in a number of bars, restaurants and hotels in town (estimates exceed 15 establishments )and is more than happy to provide guidance on where to eat, drink and socialize. Deborah is an experienced gourmet cook and would love to discuss preparing a special feast for a private party anytime. Having also worked for various tour providers, she is on hand to help you plan and book your holiday adventures, either before or during your stay.
