Hanging out in Alaska with my beary best buddies 08/20/2008

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Come to Alaska and be mesmerized by the beauty and magnitude of the “final frontier.” From the moment you arrive, you will be awe struck by the beautiful landscape. On the way to the property we were welcomed by three moose waiting for us along side the road. The first thing my bear buddies noticed when we entered the home was how spacious and clean it was. As we ventured out we were pleased at how convenient this vacation rental was to restaurants, grocery stores and various other activities. It is situated on a very quiet street with a heavily wooded area and wetlands all around.

Any bear traveling alone, with friends, or with his bear family would enjoy this spacious three-level property where there is plenty of room available for a corporate retreat, family reunion or a vacation getaway.

Features include: Modern kitchen, very large bedrooms for peaceful nights rest after fun-filled days of exploring any number of activities. Some of those activities may be the 5th Street Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, wildlife viewing almost anywhere you go or salmon fishing everywhere, even in the middle of the city, just to name a few. The owners ensure you are well informed to plan your vacation adventures by providing all the brochures you need.

The furnishings in this home are all excellent quality. You will not be disappointed if you choose this property for your Alaskan vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Jill and her family have lived in Anchorage for 52 years. She was born in Fairbanks. We are familiar with Anchorage, and fun things to do while you are here.

Why the Owner Chose Anchorage:
This property is in a great LOCATION! We have lived in other mid-town areas of Anchorage. We like being close to everything--yet we had always picked our homes based on Southern Exposure and bike trails/greenbelts/ creeks in our back 'yard' area. This location has it ALL!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This is a huge unit. It is across from a quiet forested area with moose and birds. 1/2 block down a path are the the creek, bike trails, bridges, community gardents, playground, and baseball fields. We are on the same street (2 blocks) from the Major Anchorage Sports Arena --The Sullivan, and 5 blocks from the major events, theatres, and restaurants that are downtown.
