Many of the attractions listed (downtown shopping, museums, retaurants, attractions, tours, etc.) are within walking distance of the Rainforest Cottage, including hiking. But several of the best hiking, scenic walks/drives, and features are anywhere from 3-30 miles away, so a car is very nice to have if you're in Juneau for more than a few days. In the summer, bus & ocean (fishing and whale watching) tours leave from downtown Juneau regularly, so a car is not a necesity.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Matthew lived in Juneau for 10 years, and now resides primarily in beautiful Sitka, 90 miles away by air. He keeps his house in Juneau so he has a place to rest his head during his regular visits to family in town, and so folks like you can enjoy his amazing place and our amazing town. Rhonda (pictured here) is pleased to join them in hosting visitors in their lovely cottage apartments and making them feel welcome in their home town. Rhonda is a close family friend of Matthew and has lived with her family here in Juneau (and down the street from the Rainforest Cottage) for over 25 years. She enjoys gardening, hiking, gathering to play ukulele with friends, eating good food and sharing a good story.
Why the Owner Chose Downtown Juneau, Juneau, AK, USA:
Juneau is a unique combination of a thriving capital city and a welcoming small town. It is filled with artists, live music and great food, while also having some of the most amazing wilderness literally in our backyard. Downtown Juneau, in particular, provides all of this without ever getting in a car.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The Basin Road neighborhood is one of the oldest in Juneau, its homes originally built to house workers and managers of the gold mines in the surrounding mountains. Today, the area is loved by locals as the best daily connection with the outdoors, with anything from leisurely walks to back-country running and world-class hiking... truly just around the corner from the Rainforest Cottage.
