Home on the Creek in the MIDDLE of ANCHORAGE!! Thatâ€™s so cool!!
After a long day of exploring, enjoy a beautiful view of the creek while relaxing in the hot tub and enjoy the midnight sun.
The backyard is where the fun and entertaining happens. Games are played on the lawn and kids can explore the creek and watch animals scurry around while the rest of the group relaxes in the hot tub or grilling salmon on the grill. The running water of the creek and lushes dense trees will feel like youâ€™re outside of the anchorage area but only a mile from a store. Be careful of the moose in the creek, they like to come up and eat the leaves on the trees. In the backyard youâ€™ll find a BIG deck, barbecue, chiminea and comfortable chairs waiting for you and of course the HOT TUB!
We have set up our home for a comfortable living space that has every thing your own home would have. The open kitchen, dinning and living room makes for a great entertaining space.
