About Mark & Lorane

We are life long Alaskans who have years of experience in the Alaskan hospitality business, having owned and operated a fly out fishing lodge in the Bristol Bay area for over 25 years. We flew 4 bush planes and catered to 16 guests a week on the shores of the fantastic Lake Clark. Our goal is to provide visitors a top quality and restful retreat with an emphasis on affordability. We love the outdoors and this beautiful state and would love to share it with you.

Mark & Lorane

Mark & Lorane purchased this apartment in 1976

Why Mark & Lorane chose Anchorage

Mark and I have upgraded and furnished 'The Woods' to be our Alaskan second home, as we now divide our time between Alaska and Colorado. It has all the comforts and beautiful views that we could want. Mark both designed and built The Woods offering spacious rooms and big windows to counter the lack of daylight in the Alaskan winter. We know you will enjoy your time here as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

The Woods open, spacious feeling is the key. Relaxing in front of a real fireplace with logs that easily light allows you to truly be able to wind down and feel like you're at home. If you need anything, Sasha, in our Anchorage office, is only a phone call away.

I did a lot of research before deciding on the Woods, and I'm so happy with my choice! My husband, toddler and I had a great stay and were very comfortable. The place is well equipped with everything you need and more...hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, snack basket, etc. etc. It was very clean, quiet, affordable, and convenient to all the sights we wanted to see. The owner, Mark, and his office manager, Sasha, were extremely helpful through the entire process. Thanks so much for a great stay!

Perfect for visiting Anchorage and surrounds

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Woods for 9 nights for our stay in Anchorage and the area around within a day's driving distance. At first we thought the neighborhood wasn't so good, but there wasn't any problem. The apartment is very well located close to Elmendorf AFB or JBER and the Glenn Hwy. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. They had even provided coffee with a grinder, snacks, and some spices. They also had detergent and softener sheets. The apartment is roomy and the furniture comfortable.

I received an email the day before check-in with the key code and directions to the apartment. There were plenty of restaurants and grocery stores in the area.

Convenient location, well-stocked, well-appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Woods is a very comfortable, well furnished apartment which is very conveniently located. Our two-week stay was made so much easier with a home base with easy access to the airport, Seward Highway, downtown, shopping, food and gas, and several parks and recreation areas. Having a kitchen and laundry enabled us to be able to eat in and pack much fewer clothes. The cooler provided was a welcome perk allowing us to take water and soft drinks on our long daily excursions. I’ll definitely check availability if I get back to Anchorage, and will recommend this apartment to anyone I know who’s heading that way for an extended stay. My thanks to everyone at The Woods who made this stay possible and easy.

Amazing and Beautiful Property with GREAT PRICING!

  • 5 of 5

This two bedroom is wonderful. The furnishings are comfortable and beautiful. The kitchen is large and well equipped with everything you could/would need for the "home away from home" feel. There was coffee, popcorn, cashews, sugar, etc in a cute welcome basket upon arrival. There were ample supplies such as shampoo, conditioner, soap etc and the towels were splendid. I cannot say enough good things about the rental. I would certainly stay here again! It was a pleasure dealing with everyone involved and everyone made sure the stay would be comfortable with easy communication. Highly recommend a stay here.
