  • Alaskan Fireweed House is Fine

    "Great place to base out of while staying in Juneau. Room for 4 or 5 with very nice accommodations. Save a few bucks by taking advantage of the cooking facilities which include a grill on the deck. Even on the Summer Solstice, the trees lend a light dampening effect so sleeping is easy. Tty it, you'll like it."

  • Great place to relax after a day of hiking/biking/exploring

    "We had a great stay in this apartment, I went with my family and we had everything we needed. The apartment is in between the Valley and Downtown so a good base to get wherever you're going, plus from this place you can walk to the Salmon Creek trail. It rained most of our stay so it was nice to have somewhere to come back to with a living room to relax (and a dryer!). We didn't have much interaction with the owners but they were helpful with any questions we had. Kitchen was fully stocked and served our needs, the place was clean and lived up to it's description. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place to escape after a day of hiking/biking/exploring Juneau!"

Juneau Travel Tips

Incredible Attractions to See near Juneau Vacation Rentals

Juneau is located in a part of the world that is known for its glacial beauty. The Mendenhall Glacier is one of the most impressive in the area. It has an ice core that measures between 300 and 1,800 feet deep; at its widest point, it is almost a half-mile in diameter. Incredibly, this giant mass of ice still makes steady progress in its movement each year. The Mendenhall Glacier is only one of many glaciers that make up the much larger Juneau Icefield. Local outfitters provide guided excursions where you can go hiking and climbing in various parts of the region.

Juneau is also known for its large population of migrating humpback whales. In season, you can see them in the waterways with their young. The best way to have a close encounter with the whales is by joining a whale watching boat excursion. For the more adventurous, there are also sea kayaking excursions available where you can see these gentle giants of the sea.

Between October and April each year, visitors to Juneau can enjoy a wide variety of festivals events, live performances and art shows. If you enjoy the classics, you can take in a show at the Juneau Opera or enjoy a night out at the Juneau Symphony Orchestra.

Getting to Juneau Cabins

There are daily flights that take visitors between Seattle, Anchorage and Juneau. These scheduled jet services offer the most convenient way to get to Juneau. Juneau also serves as an air hub for flights to communities located to the southeast such as Sitka, Ketchikan and Petersburg. You can take your car to Juneau but you can’t drive there. If this sounds a little strange, it is because most communities are connected by waterways rather than roads. The Alaskan Marine Highway System is a floating roadway and ferry system that connects communities in Alaska. You can enter the system in British Columbia or Washington among other areas and then travel between destinations. For sections where there are no road connections, you can simply drive your car onto a ferry and cruise along to the next port. This is actually one of the best ways to explore the region. You can then arrive in Juneau relaxed and ready to enjoy your vacation.
