My husband and I stayed in the Suite in early July and we had a totally relaxing time there. There is a magnificent, 180-degree view; everything that can be seen is beautiful---the water, the mountains, the boats, the flowers in the yard, and the bald eagles that fly around the property. There is a stylish and spacious balcony from which to enjoy the fabulous view. The inside of the Suite is extremely comfortable and immaculate. There is plenty of space in each area and the gorgeous view can be enjoyed from the bedroom, living room, and kitchen. All of the kitchen appliances are of top quality and everything in the unit worked perfectly. The bed was really comfortable and the linens were even made of luxurious bamboo!
The owners are extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. It is obvious that the 2 rental units and the extensive and beautiful landscaping is a labor of love for them and fortunate travelers who come upon this gem get to enjoy the fruits of their dedication to perfection. And, their dog, Denali, is the most mellow and gentle dog ever! I definitely recommend this property to anyone who desires a wonderful and stress-free stay.
The Mendenhall Glacier and Lake is really close by; we had a great time there hiking one day and then kayaking near newly-formed icebergs another day after a rare jokulhlaup (glacial outburst flood) occurred.
We also went for a scenic drive "out the road" with a very enjoyable stop at the Shrine of St. Therese. Auke Lake is also very close by for a beautiful walk.
This segment of our Alaskan vacation was absolutely perfect due to the owners' hard work and dedication to perfection.
Thank you so much for a most memorable stay, Debbie and Tom (and Denali, too!).
