ANCHORAGE LAKESIDE CHALET

Anchorage Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This cozy lakeside chalet is 10 minutes from the airport. Walk out to the lake in the backyard and cast a line for rainbow trout; take the canoe for a spin; watch the wild geese swim by, or wade in for a swim yourself! While you will feel secluded at the chalet, within blocks you will find fast food restaurants, a first class 24 hour grocery store, and bike trails for riding or walking. .

Some of you may remember our other vacation rental which we called 'Anchorage Lakeside Cabin Retreat'. This vacation rental is right next door and on the adjoining lot. This is a two story chalet with a vaulted ceiling in the living area and plenty of windows for a view of the lake. The master bedroom is upstairs with a king bed and a private bath with a tub/shower and double sinks. Also upstairs is a loft that overlooks the living area below. The downstairs bedroom has 2 double beds that can be turned into a king bed. Also downstairs are a bathroom, full kitchen, living room and adjoining dining room.

You can hear our loons' wild calls day or night. Canada Geese often bring their new fuzzy families to our backyard to munch on the lawn. An Osprey frequents the lake and can sometimes be seen catching fish in its own unique way. Bald eagles (a common sight to Alaskans) frequent the lake as well.

I am a school teacher and long time Alaskan.

Larry Day purchased this cabin in 2001

It is an ideal location for a vacation rental since it is on a lake and so close to city conveniences.

Since our chalet is on lakefront property you can walk across the lawn and step onto the dock for fishing, boating and swimming. If you had one you could dock a float plane at our dock. The large yard gives you plenty of room for outdoor activities. It is very quiet and you feel like you are not in a city yet you are. And for those interested there is a public park next door.

Charming and homely cabin

Pretty cabin on a lovely plot running down to Lake Jewel. Very nice comfortable house, well equipped apart from a scarcity of mugs or cups - a total of 6, which for four tea-drinkers meant a lot of re-washing! Otherwise the house was lovely and Larry the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. We thought we would have to cancel due to a family bereavement and he was so understanding about our change of dates.

This property is conveniently located near the airport, Kincaid Park, and just minutes to downtown Anchorage. And it has a beautiful lakefront view. With two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, laundry room, and large yard, it's perfect for a family. The owner Larry was very helpful in the planning, and even purchased a pack and play for our daughter to use while there (so the Chalet is now set up for young children!) Once you arrive, Larry comes over and introduces himself and provides additional information about the local area and attractions, leaving a guide book to use while there.
For a stay in Anchorage that feels like your home away from home, choose the Anchorage Lakeside Chalet!

We had such a wounderful time at your Chalet! We never had a concern about the bees. Infact we forgot they where even there until you brought the honey comb in to show the kids. (by the way they loved learning about it all!) We had plenty of room for 4 adults and 3 children. You are about 3 min. away from the gas station and grociery store. Close to the airport as well. About 10 min away from downtown and the diamond head shoping area. A great location! Yes the public beach is right next door, but it worked out great! When the kids wanted to go swimming we just had to walk a few feet (works out great when they are still up at 11:00pm because of the time change and its still daylight out) Some younger people where playing there music way to loud one day, but we just went over and asked them to turn it down, told them it was so loud it was shaking the house! They laughed said sorry and turned it down...We really did not notice to much at night. The house itself is amazing, its clean,everything works great and beds are so comfortable! I would rent your chalet again!

We had 5 adults in our party and rented this chalet for a week. Our experience was excellent, as the cabin met, if not surpassed our expectations. The place was clean and came with very good amenities and was in a very favorable location. I highly recommend giving this place a try if you need a somewhere to stay in Anchorage. Owner was very friendly and made sure we were taken care of during our stay.

Good enough

The previous review sounds like an exact echo of the owner's voice, posted a day or so after I booked and inquired about why he had no reviews here.

The place was clean and comfortable. The lake and canoe access was a plus. The mosquitoes were not bad at all considering the proximity of the lake and the fact that all of Alaska has them. There was a basket of kids toys which was wonderful.Everything in the house worked.

There were small downsides: The property is right next to a park where people are partying until 2:00 am on sunny evenings, despite the park being officially closed at 11 am. Closing the windows to the house blocks out the sound, however. A few simple things like providing more than a tiny one-night's worth bottle of shampoo and measuring cups for the kitchen would have been nice.

Finally, the owner should be upfront that he keeps bees 30 ft from the house. For us, and for most folks, it is not a problem and provided an extra point of interest to the property. Some folks, who react badly or fatally to bee stings, probably would want to steer clear.The bees are not accessible from the property and you'd probably have to try hard to get into trouble with them, but they are there.

Owner's Response: I promise I didn't write the last review myself. That's impossible with VRBO. Reviews are written voluntarily by previous guests. Yes, the park does get used after hours on warm nights. Even if the gate were closed folks could still walk in and use it. I do keep bees and leave a spotting scope in the chalet for viewers to view them. No guest has ever been stung that I know of. I appreciate the suggestion to include a note about the hives in my rental agreement. Perhaps I'll provide samples of honey for future guests to "sweeten" the deal. :)
