Let “The Cove” serve as your base and retreat as you explore this spectacular corner of Alaska. The Cove is nestled close to the shores of Smugglers Cove in the arms of the temperate rain forest of Southeast Alaska. Our location provides a unique blend of the feeling of remote living, but with the convenience of being close (8 miles) to the town center of Juneau. Come join us in your private home as you let your surroundings smuggle away your cares and reset your soul.

The space
My husband built this original home 20 years ago. Here we raised our three children before “living small” was popular. Over the past four years we added a detached home next to it where we now reside. We reserve “The Cove” for children to come back to and for YOU to come visit for a wonderful Alaska stay.

Your (900 sq ft) private space includes the main entrance and bedroom with full size murphy bed, on lower level with rear exit leading to back yard and fire pit. Upper level includes kitchen, dining and seating area with spacious deck and barbecue, as well as, bedroom with queen bed, laundry, and shower only bathroom.

Where you’ll be

Juneau, Alaska, United States

Fritz Cove is a short drive from the airport, world famous Mendenhall Glacier, and many popular hiking trails. Of course, beautiful beaches are everywhere! Just 10 minutes away from the home you’ll find Auke Bay Harbor, where whale watching trips frequently embark and day kayak rentals are offered. Auke Bay is also home to a new brewery and several popular eateries—from burgers to Thai food.

To locals, this area is known for being away from the hustle of the tourist scene. However, downtown Juneau is just 20 minutes away and worth checking out. There you’ll find summer shopping and other tourist attractions, such as the Mt. Roberts Tram and zipline courses. Heading the other direction (north) you’ll find the gorgeous Shrine of St. Therese and a scenic drive to “the end of the road.”
