The Space

Join us for A Comfortable Stay in our Anchorage Turnagain home which features vaulted ceilings, a gourmet kitchen, and fireplaces, nestled up to a wooded park in a quiet cul-de-sac. Ideally situated near the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, and only 2 miles from downtown, and less than 4 miles to the airport. We offer 3 guest bedrooms, each with queen beds and private bathrooms. The spacious upstairs rooms offer en suite private baths, and walk-in closets, while the room on the main floor level's bath is adjoining. Breakfasts are Continental style, frequently featuring home-baked goods and the coffee is robust.

*Rates do not include 12% Municipality bed tax. Pets on approval, $50 security deposit, $20 additional cleaning.

Countryside Bedroom: This private bedroom with a pillow-topped queen and single bed is perfect for a couple on vacation, small families as well as traveling companions. This room is on the second floor with an en-suite bath and walk-in closet.

Our home is at the back of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled against a wooded park and only minutes from downtown, whether you are pedaling, cross country skiing or driving.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home.

Guest Access

Guests are welcome to use our books, games and movies and have light kitchen access while staying with us (as long as they are left in the same condition found (or better, we'll definitely accept better!) And we recognize accidents happen. If they do, let us know!). The laundry facilities are also available. We ask that guests respect the areas marked private, as it is our home.

Interaction with Guests

As much as they'd prefer and we are able to oblige. We are available when needed, unobtrusive when not.

The Neighborhood

Our home is at the back of a quiet cul-de-sac, nestled against a wooded park and only minutes from downtown, whether you are pedaling, cross country skiing or driving. Grocery, bookstore, theatre and restaurants are all just blocks away.

Neighborhood Shopping
Safeway and Walgreens are just a couple blocks away, as is a small shopping center with a fabulous bookstore, Title Wave, REI and several small cafes, including favorites Kaladi Brothers (coffee café), Yak n Yeti (Indian), Spenard Road House (comfort food).

Bear Tooth Theatre shows movies that are often independent and main stream blockbusters (late release, pre-DVD) for discounted prices (tickets are $4 - $6) Enjoy menu items from their restaurant, and for those 21 and over, beer from their brewery while you watch the film. Monthly concerts are held on the first Thursday to coincide with their first taps from the Broken Tooth Brewery. See (URL HIDDEN)

Public transportation – Our home is one block away from the bus stop. Check out the Anchorage People Mover website (URL HIDDEN)
The Municipality has the public transit linked with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps so just input your start and destination, select public transit. Please note that the bus does not run very late, and limited to no service on holidays.

Cab rides from the airport are about $15. Alaska Yellow Cab has the most attractive cabs in town - and a very easy phone number to rememb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)! Check out their website (URL HIDDEN) for fare and scheduling information.

Train - The Anchorage downtown train station is only 3.5 miles from the house - less than 12-minute ride away. Visit the Alaska Railroad's website at (URL HIDDEN)

Other Things to Note

Packing Tips:
Alaska's water is among the best, we recommend bringing a thermos cup or reusable water bottle - refill throughout the day (thermos cup is better, keeps temperatures as intended!). Many vendors will thank you for bringing your own cup and happily rinse out for you as needed. Here's to creating less garbage!

Clothing: we always recommend visitors bring clothing with layering options: base layer for light warmth, casual layer, insulating layer (sweater, fleece, etc.) then wind/water proof outer layer. This approach gives you lots of options if the weather changes throughout the day/elevation, etc. Comfortable all-purpose shoes. Shorts and sandals are appropriate in the summer (day time temps to 80 in Anchorage, 90 in Fairbanks are not unheard of, nor is 56)...

What to do about all that light: Alaska has an overabundance of daylight in the summer and if you are light sensitive, we recommend bringing a sleeping mask. While we have black out shades the light is insidious and creeps around the edges of the blinds.

Guest resources:
Our extensive library ranges from Plato and Machiavelli to Gore Vidal and Hunter Thompson, with a heaping dose of biology and Alaska natural history. If you borrow a book, please treat it gently and return it to the shelf before leaving or leave it in your room upon checking out.

Guided nature tours with our resident biologist, and birding specialist extraordinaire, are available upon request for $30/person for an hour and a half. Paths and schedules are determined based upon the season and the interests and abilities of the participants.

Our State fair takes place at the end of August thru the beginning of September. Should this be happening during your visit to the area - you might look into it by entering 'Palmer, Alaska State Fair' in your Internet browser.

House Rules

In Alaska homes it is very common to remove outdoor shoes and leave them at the entry. This helps confine the outdoor elements (snow, mud, glacial silt). =)

Only guests who are staying at the house please, and no hosting parties unless we are invited =)
