About Ann Rittal

Outdoor enthusiasts and seasoned Alaskans, Mike and Tracy revel in all things Alaska. They can direct you to local restaurants, live entertainment, and can talk about hiking, biking, running, skiing, hunting, fishing, kayaking, and living in Anchorage and Alaska. They have traveled extensively and know what visitors like in their accommodations and their adventures.

Ann Rittal purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Ann Rittal chose Sand Lake

Wanting to live in the city, but yet be in a private wooded property, was paramount when they built their home in Sand Lake. Close to world-famous Kincaid Park, with its miles and miles or trails and parklands, they can often be found working in their gardens or playing outside. It's about 20 minutes to anywhere in town, 3 minutes to Mother Nature. Come for the quiet and peacefulness, learn about all there is to see and do, then relax and let Alaska take over for you.

What makes this apartment unique

Waking one morning to the sign of a calving mother moose affirmed Mike and Tracy's location of wonder and joy. Owls and eagles nest in their yard, moose wander through frequently, they've even seen a bear and a lynx. Down the street is Mike's sister's B&B, A Lakeside B&B, and if you stay at Sand Lake Studio, you can use the boats at A Lakeside B&B to enjoy Sand Lake and all of it's wonders, including fishing and paddle boating and canoeing in the summer, cross-country skiing and skating in the winter.

Car: recommended

Anchorage is a vibrant city of about 280,000 people with all the amenities and activities you could want. If you're outdoors-inclined, be sure to visit the zoo, climb Flattop, and walk along the Coastal Trail. The Cultural Pass for the Anchorage Museum and Alaska Native Heritage Center is well worth the price and use the free shuttle to go between the two.
