About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)
Several parks in the neighborhood offer views of downtown, Mt. McKinley, Mt. Susitna, Cook Inlet, Knik Arm and the Port of Anchorage. A five minute walk will get you to world class salmon fishing at Ship Creek during fishing season.
Also a short ten minute walk is the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail where you can ski, bike or walk and enjoy the coastal beauty to your heart's content. The Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, The Egan and Dena'ina Convention Centers, and The Anchorage Museum of History and Art are just minutes away.
The Iditarod starts less than a mile from the house. You can enjoy the winter festivities and be home in no time when you're ready for some hot cocoa and a movie! Or, in the Summer, enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine in the backyard around the fire pit after a hard day of fishing, shopping or sightseeing. We purchased the house in 1991 and are the 2nd owners. It has been continually and lovingly updated and improved since we bought it. The most recent additions were a brand new kitchen in the rental (2013) and a whole house generator (2015) so as not to be inconvenienced should we have a power outage.
Beautifully decorated, it was put together with a little bit of romance and a lot of comfort in mind. The 1326 square foot suite welcomes you with a bright and cheerful entry. Ample extras are intended to make your stay very special and memorable. We will stock the unit with groceries prior to your arrival at your request and for an additional fee.
It is intended to be a true home away from home, where you can enjoy a private experience in a perfect location on a beautiful property. Your hosts are immediately available should you need anything to make your stay more enjoyable.
We truly look forward to welcoming you as you plan your journey to Alaska. We are grateful that you are interested in staying at our vacation rental.

About the owner: Laura is a lifelong Alaskan. Her adventure-seeking family moved here from Southern Californiaha when she was just one year old in 1965. Her family loves the Alaskan outdoors and all of the activities and majestic beauty it offers. Laura is an artist. Some of her work hangs in the B&B, and special aritistic touches abound outside on the decks and in the fenced yard. If you want shopping, dining, entertainment, sightseeing, day trip, or fishing advice, we're here to help! In April of 2011, her family traveled to France and Italy for three weeks and absolutely fell in love with the people, culture, scenery, and history.
