                      Car: Recommended

                      Many of the attractions listed (downtown shopping, museums, retaurants, attractions, tours, etc.) are within walking distance of the Rainforest Cottage, including hiking. But several of the best hiking, scenic walks/drives, and features are anywhere from 3-30 miles away, so a car is very nice to have if you're in Juneau for more than a few days. In the summer, bus & ocean (fishing and whale watching) tours leave from downtown Juneau regularly, though, so a car is not a necesity.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Melissa manages the apartments and lives in Juneau near the Mendenhall Glacier in the valley. She has lived in Juneau for over 20 years and loves Juneau and Southeast Alaska. She is also a wedding and event planner and owns Creativation Events. She has been planning events in Southeast Alaska since 1995. She has lots of knowledge about other communities in Southeast, as well, and loves to promote 'off-the-tourist-track' destinations.

                      Why the Owner Chose Juneau:
                      The Rainforest Cottage is comfortable and conveniently located to get to see all Juneau has to offer. Melissa and Matthew have been in business with the Rainforest Cottage for over 7 years, are well-established and responsive to guest inquiries and needs.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      The Basin Road neighborhood is one of the oldest in Juneau, its homes originally built to house workers and managers of the gold mines in the surrounding mountains. Today, the area is loved by locals as the best daily connection with the outdoors, with anything from leisurely walks to back-country running and world-class hiking... truly just around the corner from the Rainforest Cottage.
