Anchorage cottage description

This quiet, cozy cottage is nestled on a large park-like fenced lot with 3 other cottages (the other cottages are the homes of long-time Alaskans). Up to four people can stay in this one bedroom, one bath abode. There is a simple yet well equipped kitchen with all of the basics, including a gas stove, full sized refrigerator and breakfast table seating for 4 people. There is a roomy bedroom with a queen sized bed with a large closet that contains a full-size washer and dryer. The simple bathroom contains a full sized tub and shower. The small living room has a couch that can be folded out to sleep two people. A family of 4 will be cozy but comfortable in this adorable cottage. Private off-street parking.

High speed internet is provided.

Bikes are available upon request. Inflatable kayaks and a 14 foot raft with rowing frame available at a substantial discount from the going rate in Alaska.

Child friendly dog and two cats live in the other cottages.

The large fenced yard is shared by all 4 cottages. There is a fire pit with firewood provided. A variety of yard games, including badminton, bocce ball, croquet and more. Bird houses on the property attract nut hatches and swallows. One block away is a walking and biking trail that connects with the famous Coastal Trail. Your cottage has a private fenced yard with a deck and barbeque for cookouts.

You are 5 minutes from the airport, 2 minutes from the midtown cultural center that houses Bear Tooth, REI, Middle Way, Sugar Spoon, Tap Root, Spenard Roadhouse, Chilkoot Charlies, and too many others to list. You are also 6 minutes from downtown.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Between the 2 of them Courtney and Harry have lived 50 years in Alaska. Courtney spent time in Indiana, Minnesota and California before making her way to Alaska for a summer job that has not ended yet. Harry grew up in Oregon and called Colorado home to for awhile before taking his summer job in Alaska.

                      Why the Owner Chose Anchorage:
                      Both of us started out in Spenard upon arriving in Alaska. The neighborhood, cultural happenings, easy bike access to shopping, downtown and the trail system made Spenard an obvious choice for us.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Our large park like setting with games, lawn furniture, lack of bugs (relatively speaking), location in the warmest part of town make our place a great refuge after your day of activity.
