About the property

Nice beautiful private unit overlooking Juneau and the Cruise Ships

This comfortable, quiet, unit looks out over downtown Juneau, the harbor, Mount Roberts Tram, the summer cruise ships and the majestic Mount Juneau. Eagles fly and rest next to the unit.

Unit now comes with passes to the local gym (within half mile of the unit).

In-house massages are available by appointment.

Your unit is fully private and is down a short, covered, lighted set of 14 stairs. The unit is next to the woods so not only does it have spectacular views of Juneau, the mountains and the water, but also has the feel of being tucked into the woods. It has two bedrooms, great room with dining area and table and chairs, full kitchen with island stool seating, full bathroom, pantry, a back family room with more coaches, and a private deck with tables, chairs, and propane BBQ.

Directly to the right of the unit is a forest wilderness’ area that includes a nature path leaving from the unit.

The home is at the end of a very nice street with lighting and sidewalks.

A short wilderness trail begins at the unit and a five minute walk up the street takes you to the trailhead of one of the best trails in Juneau - the Dan Moller trail. This three-mile trail ends at the Dan Moller Cabin, a Forest Service public day use cabin that includes a heater. Nice place to dry out and have lunch. You can rent the cabin for the night from the Forest Service for a small fee.

Your private deck is partially covered and includes deck chairs, table and a propane bbq. Inside the sliding glass doors is a great room with a 42” flat screen with DVD, dining room with table and four chairs, a large comfortable couch a modern chair recliner – great for reading, aka napping.

Three stools surround the stove\cooking\kitchen island area. The kitchen is nicely equipped with full oven, range, dish washer and double wide fridge with ice and filtered water and many small appliances.

In the unit are plenty of the cooking basics including blender, mixing bowls, plates, cups and glasses, cooking oil, butter, glasses, cooking pans, flour, muffin mix, spices, butter, coffee maker and coffee :)

A full washer and dryer are also private for you along with a sitting and family room in the back with an office area, a pull-out bed. This family room is a great place for the kids to spread-out or a quiet place to work.

There is a laptop for your use in the unit.

The bathroom has a tiled, heated floor with full tub\shower. Bathroom is pass-through so you can get to it directly from the main bedroom or the hallway.

Both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds, night stands, closet, clocks, IPhone players, and other amenities. Bedroom one also has its own flat screen with full cable with HBO and DVD.

The dining area has a table with four chairs and there is an additional full-sized table on the deck with four chairs and two extra around the corner.

There is a road bike and a mountain bike for your use parked at your unit – including helmets.

The unit is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to the local Foodland IGA grocery store, restaurants and bars. An additional 5 to 10 minute walk takes you to the heart of downtown Juneau. It is 12 minute drive to Costco or Fred Meyers.

High-speed wireless Internet is included with your stay.

We want to make this your relaxing vacation get away. We’re there if you need anything, but if you like your privacy, then our paths will not likely pass unless you need something.

If you don’t have a car, taxi fare from the airport generally runs $23.00. There is parking for your car next to the unit. It’s only a three minute walk from the unit to the city bus system. The City bus system will take you anywhere in Juneau including within a half mile of the glacier visitor center.

We’re confident that you’ll love the place and the location. Enjoy!

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on blueberry hill in mid August and it was absolutely amazing. From the fresh blueberry jam to the bald eagle in the trees off the balcony and the spectacular view- it was amazing. Very spacious and lots of supplies that made our stay enjoyable. Thank you very to Steve and Ann-Marie- you made the end to our Alaskan adventure absolutely amazing!

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent five wonderful nights at Blueberry Hill and could not have been more impressed! The location was ideal--close enough to town to get anywhere quickly, yet tucked away on Douglas Island away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Juneau during peak cruise ship season. The house had everything we needed, and more; we cooked many meals in the well-appointed kitchen, and even bought some fresh caught salmon and grilled it on the BBQ! An amazing place...we will be back!

A Little Slice of Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all; private, quiet location with stunning views from the deck, easy access to downtown Juneau (10 minute walk or 5 minute drive) and spectacular hiking trails a block away that provided us with a bounty of wild blueberries. The hosts have thought of everything when appointing this home. Nice size bedrooms with comfortable queen beds - one showcases the owner's quilting talent! The bathroom was well stocked with a variety of incidentals. Appliances were in great condition and the kitchen was well stocked with basic supplies. They even had binoculars...which we used often, and bear spray...which we didn't need, but provided reassurance during our hiking and fishing adventures. There were several maps, brochures, books and other documents that were helpful in planning activities. We were treated not once, but twice with freshly baked blueberry muffins from the hosts along with a jar of homemade blueberry jelly. We consider the hosts, Steve and Ann Marie to be much more than hosts. They are friends, who we would definitely stay with again. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us!

Our family had a wonderful time here.

  • 5 of 5

The house is so cozy, we immediately felt settled in and comfortable. The house is well-appointed with lots of little things that made it easy to relax and enjoy our time in Juneau. Anne-Marie and Steve were very friendly and helpful with local information. The kids were especially thrilled to see all the board games there for family game nights. We were happy to head home here after long days of hiking. Thanks so much!

Blueberry Hill is one of the finest VRBO rentals we have ever encountered.

  • 5 of 5

The view is outstanding, and there is a convenient deck and table from which to view it. We (two adult couples) loved the spacious and well laid out arrangement. All four of of us take active roles in food preparation and we enjoyed working together in the compact, but fully equipped kitchen. Steve and Anne-Marie have given great thought to the needs of their guests and have created an ideal, comfortable rental experience. Anne-Marie came down a day into our stay and left us the best strawberry-rhubarb pie we have ever had.

Great place to stay!

We loved our stay on Blueberry Hill. Great place. A lot of heart and attention has gone into caring for this place. Great little deck with a view of Juneau and the mountains to eat outside. Cozy & very quiet. Loved it. Thank you.
