This comfortable, quiet, unit looks out over downtown Juneau, the harbor, Mount Roberts Tram, the summer cruise ships and the majestic Mount Juneau. Eagles fly and rest next to the unit.
Your unit is fully private and is down a short, covered, lighted set of 14 stairs. The unit is next to the woods so not only does it have spectacular views of Juneau, the mountains and the water, but also has the feel of being tucked into the woods. It has two bedrooms, great room with dining area and table and chairs, full kitchen with island stool seating, full bathroom, pantry, a back family room with more coaches, and a private deck with tables, chairs, and propane BBQ.
Directly to the right of the unit is a forest wilderness’ area that includes a short nature path leaving from our unit.
The home is at the end of a very nice street with lighting and sidewalks.
A short wilderness trail begins at the unit and a five minute walk up the street takes you to the trailhead of one of the best trails in Juneau - the Dan Moller trail. This three-mile trail ends at the Dan Moller Cabin, a Forest Service public day use cabin that includes a heater. Nice place to dry out and have lunch. You can rent the cabin for the night from the Forest Service for a small fee.
Your private deck is partially covered and includes deck chairs, table and a propane bbq. Inside the sliding glass doors is a great room with a 42” flat screen with DVD, dining room with table and four chairs, a large comfortable couch a modern chair recliner – great for reading, aka napping.
Three stools surround the stove\cooking\kitchen island area. The kitchen is nicely equipped with full oven, range, dish washer and double wide fridge with ice and filtered water and many small appliances.
In the unit are plenty of the cooking basics including blender, mixing bowls, plates, cups and glasses, cooking oil, butter, glasses, cooking pans, flour, muffin mix, spices, butter, coffee maker and coffee :)
A full washer and dryer are also private for you along with a sitting and family room in the back with an office area, a pull-out bed. This family room is a great place for the kids to spread-out or a quiet place to work.
There is a laptop for your use in the unit.
The bathroom has a tiled, heated floor with full tub\shower. Bathroom is pass-through so you can get to it directly from the main bedroom or the hallway.
Both bedrooms have comfortable beds (one double, one queen), night stands, closet, clocks, IPhone players, and other amenities. Bedroom one also has its own flat screen with full cable with HBO and DVD.
The dining area has a table with four chairs and there is an additional full-sized table on the deck with four chairs and two extra around the corner.
There is a road bike and a mountain bike for your use parked at your unit – including helmets. There is also a double kayak but while we’ll provide the life-jackets, you’ll need to provide the other amenities (requirements) for kayaking including radio, noise-makers, and self-rescue devices. The reason we don’t provide all of that equipment is because we don’t want people taking the kayak unless they have all the safety gear and know how to use it. The water is too cold not to take seriously.
The unit is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to the local Foodland IGA grocery store, restaurants and bars. An additional 5 to 10 minute walk takes you to the heart of downtown Juneau. It is 12 minute drive to Costco or Fred Meyers.
High-speed wireless Internet is included with your stay. We want to make this your relaxing vacation get away. We’re there if you need anything, but if you like your privacy, then our paths will not likely pass unless you need something.
If you don’t have a car, taxi fare from the airport generally runs $23.00. There is parking for your car next to the unit. It’s only a three minute walk from the unit to the city bus system. The City bus system will take you anywhere in Juneau including within a half mile of the glacier visitor center.
We’re confident that you’ll love the place and the location. Enjoy!
