We also are now featuring Alaskan artists works in the unit for the Alaskan experience.

Guest access

The unit is pretty much stand alone and the yard is open access and off street parking is available. Shared laundry room with two brand new LG stacked washers/dryers for those dirtier adventurous outings.

Interaction with guests

The MIL is currently set up as a separate unit from our home, so you can choose the level of interaction, we are happy to provide a spread of continental (yogurt, granola, pastries) along with other standard offerings. There will be coffee, tea, herbal, milk, juice and other drink options. Please let us know of any allergies or preferences, we are happy to accommodate.

Perfect, cozy, central apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has a perfect, central location near to the airport and downtown in a quiet neighborhood. There is a beautiful park within walking distance, with a walking path and skating rink. The apartment is immaculately clean, cozy, and stocked with more than anyone could hope (fresh breakfast supplies, toiletries, etc.)—everything you need for a perfect stay. We strongly recommend staying at the Moose and Squirrel,

Clean, Lovely, roomy living space, super comfy Bed.

  • 5 of 5

This was the third leg of our vacation. We absolutely loved this HomeAway. The owners had the fridge stocked with drinks and breakfast stuff. Everything was neat and clean. The apartment was next to a walking/bike path which was a nice find. It is close to downtown Anchorage and easy access to Seward Hwy. Highly recommend this space. The bed was super comfortable and the blackout shades worked beautifully. 😀?

A bright retreat

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place to switch off for a few days during a 6 week trip and just after being with a huge tour. It worked a treat having this gem of a home to be in, even with my husband’s sprained ankle.

Once up the outside staircase we were into a brilliantly thought-out space. Bright windows with shades that can pull from both top and bottom for light with privacy. Clean white surfaces, top quality appliances and an amazing array of food and other groceries to make staying a breeze. The TV had a good array of modern options and the WiFi is strong so our Firestick worked for the first time in Alaska. The bed is wonderfully comfortable with luxurious bedding and the closet so spacious. Laundry through a different door but what beautiful machines! So much better than a hotel!

Taxis in Anchorage are very prompt and nothing is far away or expensive. Without the sprain we would have enjoyed the route into town by foot through a park, albeit quite a long walk. The supermarket is a lovely walk a couple of blocks away past very friendly neighbours. And it’s extremely close to a park and walking trails beside the water. All in all it’s a great location in loads of different ways.

Cheery and comfortable nest

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us! It's bright, private, clean, well-equipped, and walking distance to downtown. It's apparent that Harmony and Ben have put a lot of care into 'Moose & Squirrel.' We hope to return on our next visit to Anchorage.

LOVED the M&S!!

  • 5 of 5

The moose and squirrel exceeded our expectations!! We only stayed 2 days, wish we had more time, and already want to stay at M&S on our next trip to Anchorage. The apartment was CLEAN, modern boho, fully furnished with nice linens, blankets, and anything you may need or want. We arrived and had fresh fruit on the table and a few items in the refrigerator, which was so nice considering we had been out adventuring all day before check in. Can’t wait to come back :)

We loved every detail!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our brief stay at the Moose & Squirrel. The owners anticipated (and provided for) needs that we hadn't even thought of. The apartment was immaculately clean and impeccably furnished, thoughtfully arranged for a perfect visit. We are hoping to be lucky enough to reserve the apartment for our next visit, though we imagine that once others catch on to what a great place this is, we'll have a hard time getting a reservation. If you have the chance, we would strongly recommend that you stay at the Moose & Squirrel!
