This is a well estabilished older area of Anchorage. It is also a mismash of people and how we live in Anchorage. Our neighbors are the realist people you could ever meet. They also have a well of knowledge about Alaska. They work hard, live here 24/7. It is a true community.
There are many local restaurants nearby. All very good. And everything under our all night sun you can think of.We have information for you when you arrive. We are always a phone call away, and the neighbors are always more than helpful.
There is a bus stop 3 blocks away if you don't want to navigate the streets of Anchorage. We love taking the bus downtown. No hassle parking a car, and then you can enjoy a few brewskies at one of our fine local brewpubs.
If you ever thought of living here, this is about as real as it gets
Enjoy, yet be respectful. Not only of the house, but our neighbors. They work hard & play hard. A colorful, honest, & friendly neighborhood. They love meeting new people and strive to be helpful when asked. Otherwise they will just let you be and try not to crowd your space. They watch over the property like it was one of their kids. I mean this in a good sense. You & your belongs are secure.
So relax and enjoy your stay!
A clean, comfortable, quiet place to begin our week in Alaska. We appreciate it very much. You have a nice place that can be rented without any worries.
Tim & Katie- we had a great stay in Lincoln House II. We especially appreciated 4 things: #1 Great central location to downtown, hikes, food & coffee; #2 Wifi; #3 Cleanliness of the place and comfort; #4 TV/Cable to watch to unwind from the day. Also I was glad to be able to do a couple loads of laundry too. Thank you! If we ever stay in Anchorage again, we'll definitely check your place out!
Our family had a great experience at the house and with Tim and Katie. We booked this stay very last minute and asked for special arrangements. Tim and Katie responded quickly and accommodated our request.
The house was clean and spacious, and the furniture was very comfortable. It was also nice to have access to a washer and dryer.
This was our first time using Airbnb and it was great! The house was very well kept, spacious, and well stocked. This unit is the basement and had the added bonus of being cooler on the hot days.
Tim and Katie are great hosts and even allowed us to check in a bit early.
The house is well stocked with all the necessities and then some. There are extra of everything, towels, blankets, etc. The kitchen is very nicely appointed with tile counters and under cabinet lighting. The couch is large and comfortable. Two big T.V.s. The list goes on and on.
We have a big family of six and finding places to stay at traditional hotels has always been a challenge as most do not allow that many in a room. Now that I know about this property we intend to use it for most of our frequent trips to Anchorage.
This was a great home base for exploring Anchorage. It was clean, conveniently located and situated in a friendly neighborhood. I'd recommend this to anyone planning a trip to the "City of the Midnight Sun"
Our stay in Lincoln House II was great. The house was clean and had everything we could have needed. The location was close enough to downtown Anchorage that it was easy to get to everything.
Thanks Tim and Katie for sharing your place with us!
The apartment is lovely and comfortable and well appointed. I loved the juices, condiments already in the fridge, toiletries, the blackout curtains in the room my son used, access to the laundry machines...the place and the hosts are perfect!
The few drawbacks though were... You will definitely want a car or a bike. Our experiment with People Mover was an abysmal failure-- the bus stops are right there but the bus service is pretty sparse, and we did a lot of walking. It's a great way to see the city, but in truth, that part of Spenard is not a great one. So, to maximize your time in the amazing city, rent a car. Costco has good deals for members.
While the neighborhood on Spenard leaves something to be desired (my husband was menaced by a vagrant while walking up to get some milk from the Holiday mart, nothing he couldn't handle though) you certainly won't find a cleaner, more centrally located (for the pretty convenient for downtown, airport & floatplane base) or well-appointed place in Anchorage for the price.
Thank you Wendy! I felt bad the weather wasn't more cooperative for walking either. I will not in the profile the "limited" bus service. During the week days it's great, but they do have infrequent service on weekends and holidays.
And bikes are something we hope to ad to one of our amenities.
I hope you had a great trip so Homer, and hope you would entertain the idea of our place again- car or not, thanks for your honest input.
