About the owner: I am a lifelong Alaskan. I was born in Juneau and raised between here and Sitka. I love to travel, camp, hike, ski, snowmobile and photograph my hometown. In 2011, my husband and I started renting vacation homes in Juneau to help travelers experience their family vacation surrounded by beauty, the comforts of home, and lots of space to spread out.
Why the Owner Chose Juneau: When this property became available, I wanted to create another incredible home for locals and visitors to enjoy as their personal retreat.
The Unique Benefits at this House: My favorite attributes of this property are the gorgeous interior wood work, the awe-inspiring views, and the close proximity to local shopping, restaurants, and attractions.
Right behind the house is the trailhead to the Treadwell Ditch trail and the Dan Moller trail. These are used in Summer for hiking, and it Winter for cross country skiing.
