We recently stayed at the Asian Motif Lodge, and were super impressed with the property! The house was clean, comfortable, and an excellent place for a large group to stay together in one place while enjoying Girdwood/Alyeska for a few days! Shoman was very nice and we truly enjoyed time in this gorgous home! Lots of windows and high ceilings allowed for a light and airy feel! The Japanese soaker tub was a great way to relax and we were glad to have a variety of rooms to spread out in. I highly recommend a stay at this property!! Plan for at least 2 nights....We even got an Alaskan visitor..
I was so glad to be able to stay at Asian Motif Lodge! Sometimes it is hard to find a house big enough to accommodate 16 people, not just for sleeping arrangements, but also equipped with 4.5 bathroom! Pictures on VRBO did not do its justice. Rooms were very spacious, 4 showers were a big hit with 10 girls/women to get ready for a wedding! Kitchen was nicely functioning as well. Nice comfortable living room with enough space for all of us to hang out. Plus, we absolutely loved the deck! It was a big addition to our hang out place, either rain or shine. And of course - the history in the house! Definitely worth the money! It almost felt we were transformed to another world. Thank you for that!
Shoman was reachable any time the need arised. She was very accommodating, let us look at the house prior the check in time to prepare for our large family, and was very helpful with our stay.
Everybody enjoyed staying together at Asian Motif Lodge!
We had a wonderful retreat at the Asian Motif Lodge. Before we booked it, we met with the owner, Shoman, and checked it out. We were impressed at how nice it was. Shoman answered all of our questions without any hesitation. We called her back later to book the reservation, she called back immediately after we left a VM. The house was very clean and It met our needs with three king size beds, two queen and two twin beds. Four full bathrooms and one half bath was more than enough. As for location, it's in close proximity to Alyeska Hotel, hiking and ski slopes and all the Girdwood restaurants. Our group was impressed with the accommodations and would highly recommend it for a retreat, party, etc. We will definitely be back for our next retreat!
Lovely, isolated Girdwood... spent time with Shoman, the proprietor of Girdwood-hotel-B&B-Alyeskaadventures... they will make any outdoor adventure happen (provided the weather cooperates! As Shoman so aptly pointed out: "There are no guarantees in Alaska!" Rain, fog, etc., may dampen a helicopter tour of the glaciers, or a parasailing event, but there the charm of Girdwood is still there. The hiking, tram up to The Seven Glaciers Restaurant, et al, make Girdwood a doable trip from Anchorage. And, Shoman, at the above-mentioned B&B is fabulous. She won't stop until she helps create and actualize plans to make your stay a success. She calls people she knows to make things happen, when snags in travel materialize; she is relentless in making sure your dreams become a reality.
One of the most special B & B owners I have come in contact. A very very special lady... an artist too, who shares her artwork with her guests...
Check out their website.
If you are in the Anchorage area, I would definitely check out Shoman Ryan and her wonderful B & B.
By the way, this place and town were recommended to ME, by another couple, who had stayed there previously... I am passing it on!
