2BR Guest House Vacation Rental in Anchorage, Alaska

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Oct 18, 2019

Large 1BR + loft, 2 Acres on Anchorage Hillside; wildife and recreation

Located in: Anchorage
Unique vacation rental available on 2+ acres on the Anchorage Hillside! Near Hilltop Ski Area and miles of biking and hiking trails in Chugach State Park. This former barn has been tastefully remodeled into a guest house with granite counters, in-floor radiant heat, and stainless steel appliances. Because this is a true stand-alone house (not an apartment), you have your own independent place to come back to at the end of a long day. Why stop at just visiting our great state? Treat yourself to memorable, unique, and affordable lodging at the same time!

Inside, the Barn has a master bedroom (sleeps 2) with walk-in closet, kitchen, full bath, and dining area on the main floor. A staircase leads to a main loft with a pullout couch and den (sleeps 2 more). A ladder with treads leads to a different, second loft (sleeps 1 more). There are 1,000 square feet of total living space.

Outside, you can enjoy the large yard with benches and firepit, southwestern exposure that yields sunsets and light, BBQ grill, and ample parking. The property is screened from the streets by birch and spruce trees, which are home to small wildlife, birds, and the occasional moose. It is one of two dwellings on property, accessed via a shared driveway. We, the owners, live next door and are available for ideas and suggestions, while respecting your privacy. We are long-time Alaskan biologists who can help with everything from Alaskan trip planning to fishing to wildlife awareness.

The neighborhood is entirely residential, and typically upscale homes on large lots and relatively low traffic, in what we consider the best part of Anchorage. It is safe, and just a quick walk, bike, or drive to terrific Lower Hillside facilities, including parks, playgrounds, equestrian facilities, O’Malley golf course, zoo, churches and schools, single track biking, groomed ski tracks, and park trailheads. Lots of open space means that woods and wildlife are abundant. It is a 5-minute drive from Anchorage's network of cross country ski and mountain biking trails, including the nation's 4th largest state park (Chugach State Park), secluded enough that moose are often seen in the yard, and yet only a 10-minute drive from shopping. This is as close as you can get to Alaska while still being in Anchorage!

The Barn is usually reserved as a furnished, long term rental, so it has all the amenities you'd expect to find in an established home, including a fully stocked kitchen and laundry. It is clean, fully furnished, and available only during intervals between long-term guests. It has had dogs in the past, and never any smoking. Feel free to contact us with preliminary questions about our home or your Alaska trip planning in general.
