Your hosts are Jess and Nate: We have recently returned to Alaska after having been out of state 10+ years, having traveled the world, and finally realizing there is no place like home—especially when your home is Alaska. While we both have our professional day jobs, we love to spend our free time enjoying the cultural opportunities that abound in the Anchorage area and exploring the outdoors-- whether kayaking, hiking, fishing, running, biking, or cross-country skiing. Nate was born and raised in Anchorage and, as a sometimes musician, is tuned into the local music scene. Jess grew up in Eagle River after her dad moved her family up to Alaska to try his luck as a bush pilot. She worked her way through college as a professional tour guide on the Alaska Railroad and later as a tour director leading groups through Alaska and the Yukon Territory of Canada.
While the private apartment is attached to our home, we respect your privacy and leave you to your own devices unless you have questions or concerns-- we are available by phone.
We welcome all visitors: We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, creed, gender, or sexual orientation.
Extra towels and blankets are available in the hall closet.

Our location is right in the middle of it all, but tucked away in the trees. Nestled between Northstar, Hillcrest, and the Spenard neighborhoods of Anchorage, this hideaway in the spruces is just a short stroll, ski, or a 5 minute bike-ride down the hill to Westchester Lagoon, the Chester-creek Greenbelt, and the Coastal Trail which link to downtown or to Point Worenzof and Kincaid Park. A great spot to start your Alaska adventure, we are mere blocks from the Northern Light/Spenard outdoor enthusiast Meccas of REI, Alaska Mountaineering and Hiking, and several cycling stores. We are easy walking distance to several local shops, grocery stores, a movie theater, and eateries and a 5-minute drive, 15-minute bike-ride or 30-minute walk to downtown. While close to downtown, we are on a quiet dead-end street without through traffic.
