Pearson’s Pond was founded in 1990 as a small bed and breakfast. Over time, Diane Pearson, a master gardener and interior designer developed The Pond into a romantic, luxury retreat.
The inn is located in the Mendenhall Valley about 10 minutes from Juneau International Airport and only 3 miles or a short bike ride from world-famous Mendenhall Glacier. The inn transitioned to Maryann Ray’s ownership in 2009, where tasteful upgrades and a thoughtful focus on guest service and hospitality have ensured the inn maintains its position as AAA’s only Four Diamond Award-winning lodging property in the state of Alaska.
Nestled in the Tongass Rain Forest alongside a glacial kettle pond, Pearson’s Pond’s gardens are the definition of serenity. Described as “enchanted” and “magical” by our guests, the garden boasts a sauna, two hot tubs, three gazebos, a small waterfall, porch swings, a campfire and more. From the dock you can enjoy time on the pond in a pedal boat or a rowboat (preferred by honeymooners) or curl up in a chaise lounge to read a book from our comprehensive library.
The inn’s casual elegance is the perfect place to relax after a day of outdoor activities. Snuggle up with a cup of hot cocoa in front of your fireplace or with a glass of wine and your honey on your oh-so-comfy loveseat. Enjoy premium cable on your flat screen TV, free movies from our DVD collection and complimentary wi-fi. Some rooms even offer two-person whirlpool tubs and eat-in breakfast bars. Breakfast, afternoon snacks and evening hospitality hour are provided daily. For dinner you can cook in your kitchenette, use one of our barbeques or enjoy one of Juneau’s many restaurants (we tell you where to find the best of the best). Each room has a fireplace, private entrance, private bath, sitting area, kitchenette, and a luxury queen bed with featherbed and 600-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Our wellness spa offers a wide range of massages and hand/foot treatments and our fitness center sports everything from free weights to a full-body vibration machine. We also provide bikes, fishing equipment and kayaks for our guests’ use.
Juneau in the summer is an outdoor paradise with an amazing array of excursions. You can do everything from glacier ice climbing to ziplining and from dog mushing to whale watching. We will help you decide on the best tours for your taste through our concierge services — available on a complementary basis to our guests.
We also offer end-to-end destination wedding and vow renewal consulting services, as well as all-Alaska vacation planning services. At Pearson’s Pond, we want your visit to be everything it can be and we work hard to make sure that happens.
