While many vacation homes look similar from the glossy internet listings and high resolution photos, the on-the-ground reality can be quite different. Here are some of the qualities that set Baxter Crest apart from the competition:
With 3100 sqft of living space, 4 bedrooms and 6 beds (1 king, 4 queens and a queen futon), Baxter crest is one of the few vacation homes in Anchorage that can comfortably accommodate larger families and groups. Further, the open-concept design, huge chef’s kitchen, sprawling outdoor deck and patio make this home perfect for entertaining larger groups or hosting events. Lastly, constructed in 2010 and diligently maintained since, the home is modern, fresh and in pristine condition.
Of course the home is packed with amenities and extras! Have morning coffee around the AMAZING outdoor natural gas fire pit, watch a movie on the 70” TV with dramatic $6,500 in-ceiling surround sound theatre system or relax in the expansive master suite with spa-style bathroom and Jacuzzi tub. And of course there is unlimited high speed Wi-Fi. We don’t suggest spending much time indoors while visiting Anchorage, but if you must, Baxter Crest is the place to be!
Most of the larger and nicer vacation homes that appear in the Anchorage search are actually about 30-45 minutes outside the city in Girdwood, the Hillside or Rabbit Creek Road area. Baxter Crest is located within the city limits and is convenient to everything the city has to offer. We are just minutes away (10 or less) from the airport and all the best dining, shopping and activities. From the home you can walk to Baxter Bog Park, Cheney Lake and the Alaska Botanical Gardens.
No doubt Baxter Crest is an amazing home but it’s the service that truly sets us apart. House Manager, Dawn, has over 20 years of experience in the lodging industry and has been with Baxter Crest since it opened 5 seasons ago. She is a full-time employee (not a management service) and is solely focused on creating an exceptional guest experience. Whether you need airport pickup, the fridge stocked with groceries, a batch of homemade cookies or fishing tips, Dawn has it covered! Baxter Crest owner, Troy, is a 19 year senior military officer and epidemiologist with an eye for detail and a history of success in management and leadership. He uses these skills to ensure every aspect of the home and guest experience is perfect. Steve is the third member of our team and is responsible for keeping the home in tip-top condition. If it’s broke Steve can fix it!
