About this listing
Located in the valley close to the Mendenhall Glacier. We keep the house clean and quiet. WIFI is available through out the property and a large flat screen TV with cable is setup in the living room. We are only 5 feet from a beautiful salmon stream.
Better than a Juneau Hotel - one room, double-sized bed, next to bathroom, in a quite home next to a salmon steam in the valley of Juneau, Alaska. The room is clean and comfortable with a shared kitchen and all the housing amenities.
The house comes with a wood burning stove and strawberry patch out front. Lots of space for your car, boat or whatever you might bring along. Lots of hot water for long showers or baths.
We're in a residential neighborhood just minutes away from Mendenhall Glacier and Lake. Shopping centers and airport are also a few minutes' drive away, and there are good biking trails and a bus stop nearby.
The coho salmon jumping about in the neighboring stream outside your window can attract bears sometimes, so be sure to check the area before leaving the house!
For something to do, I am a part time whale watch captain. Check out this site for an idea of what it's like: Whale Watch (website hidden). You are welcome to borrow my bicycle and head to the Mendenhall Glacier if you like, if I am not using it, just let me know and I can give you the code to the lock - if you break it please fix it. It is an amazing trail to the glacier from where we live.
The movie theater is also not far away, less than 2 miles. Safeway and gas stations are 3 miles away as well.
Down town is 7.9 miles away where there is a tram, another movie theater, and tons of shopping and bars. The capitol building is there as well as numerous docks and beautiful boats to look at.
You can find out more about me by checking out my movie which is showing on PBS called Smokin' Fish and we sell copies for $20.
Please consider our warm cozy home when looking for a Juneau hotel. You won't be disappointed.
Guests have access to WIFI and the kitchen and parking along with all the homes amenities. Guests can use the kitchen and often end up cooking for others staying with us which makes a wonderful cozy evening when we have a fire lit.
Interaction with Guests
I have gone hiking, whale watching, and canoeing with guests.
Our neighborhood is quiet and clean. Our neighbors keep an eye out for anything that might go wrong or could. Bears are out and enjoying the salmon. We do our best to keep them at a distance but sometimes it is a great photo opp.
The public bus stop is a 6 minute walk from our house. It is called Capitol Transit. I offer rides occasionally. Once in a while I loan my car out if it works with my schedule.
No smoking inside the house, dogs must be cleaned up after. Don't litter cigarette buts around the home either please. You clean your own dishes and have full use of the home. We have a washer and dryer. Please remove shoes, but not enforced. This is a nice quite clean place is all.
No hard drinking or drugs please. A 6 pack of bear or a bottle of wine is fine, but not much more. Quite time in the house around 9:00 PM as guests and me want a nice quite place to dream about salmon swimming near by.
Bicycles are free to borrow any time if available.
I had an overnight layover between flights so Cory's home was perfectly suited to my needs. The accommodations were accurately described. The bed/pillows were very comfortable. The house was quiet, which was awesome since I had been traveling for 13 hours and was ready for sleep. Cory and I had little interaction simply because my needs were few.
No complaints about Cory's place. We didn't get to see him, but he kept in touch with us and gave very clear directions on how to get to his place.
Actually stayed two different days due to the proximity to the airport. Had fun with two guests the first night but had the house to myself last night. Nice location between the glacier and airport.
The host canceled this reservation 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Cory is an interesting and accommodating host . The lodging was in a transitional state when I arrived i.e. ; a new kitchen floor. The room was adequate and simple. The bed is a comfortable standard size. The bonus is having a small creek running outside the window and the close proximity to the Mendenhall glacier.
The house is quiet and extremely well situated, in the Mendenhall valley, close to the famous Mendenhall glacier, and is a perfect base to explore Juneau area. We were extremely welcome, and could share several meals with our host, Cory Mann, who was quite pleasant and, thanks to him, we learnt a lot on the area, its history, and the traditions of smoked salmon (so good!). We would like to visit again.
Cory was an attentive and gracious host. The accommodations were modest, but very comfortable. I especially liked the brook running outside my bedroom window. The views of the mountains are terrific. I got a much needed rest. I slept well. Thank you Cory.

About the Host, Cory
I have been traveling with a movie I made called Smokin' Fish. It is a documentary about me going to fish camp with my family and putting up traditional food It is a great comedy like myself.
I love the outdoors and being on the water.
