The space

Completely private 710 sq. ft. spacious apartment suite includes bedroom (queen) with private bath, large comfortable living room and dining area with private entrance. Clean, quiet and close to downtown.

Our desire is to create a country feeling in the middle of the city. Our "urban farm" includes chickens, bees, a greenhouse and vegetable gardens along with beautiful seasonal flowers. Koko, our chocolate lab will surely greet you as will Jeepers, our tuxedo cat. Not to worry, they are not allowed in your private area. We are within walking distance to downtown Anchorage and Chester Creek is in our back yard, giving guests access to fabulous x-c ski trails in the winter and wonderful bike paths in the summer.

The Johnson family home was built in 1958. Doug was three years old when he moved from his 5th Avenue home to where we currently live on West 20th Avenue, which was then considered the boondocks and great moose hunting grounds. Our home was remodeled in 1998. After our children moved out to pursue their university studies, we decided to renovate a space for fellow travelers and officially formed Gardenside Bed and Breakfast in 2012.

A hearty and healthy continental breakfast is provided with mostly organic selections.

We had a wonderful stay at Heather's guest apartment in Anchorage. Although we did not get to meet Heather, she was very accommodating and prompt in responding to all of my messages. The apartment had enough space for us, the backyard was a wonderful perk, and it was only a few m…

We had a wonderful time! The living space was perfect, as were the organic snacks and overall setting. Heather and Doug were more than welcoming, accommodating and helpful. It really could not have been a better trip, and we would do a return visit in a heartbeat.
