A LAKESIDE SUITE: A PIECE OF COUNTRY IN THE HEART OF ANCHORAGE

Anchorage Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4), full kitchen

Imagine being surrounded by an acre of woods, fronted by a large fresh-water lake stocked with salmon and flocked to by geese and float planes alike. Imagine canoing in the early morning mist or hiking the nearby Coastal Trail along Cook Inlet. Imagine cross-country skiing in the brisk winter sunlight or ice skating under the Northern Lights. Realize it all at A Lakeside Bed & Breakfast.

Your private suite is reached by an outdoor entrance. Step into a large living room complete with sitting area, dining room, reading nook and solitude. A private bedroom and bath are yours, as well as a full kitchen where a self-serve hearty continental breakfast is made at your leisure. (We provide eggs, cereal, oatmeal, muffins, fruit, juice, tea, milk and coffee.)

Browse through the bookcase for your favorite book. Pop some popcorn, move the TV (with VCR/DVD) to your favorite corner and settle in for a private screening of a classic film from our library. Relax.

As cozy as it is inside, there's lots of activities available outside all year round. Paddle one of our canoes around Sand Lake, explore canals and search for loons and moose. Or go for a bike ride on the Coastal Trail and watch for breeching whales. Sit a spell on the patio and feel the peacefulness engulf you. No matter what month it is, A Lakeside B&B is always in season.

We're located on the shores of Sand Lake, eight minutes away from the Anchorage International Airport, 20 minutes from Downtown Anchorage, 45-60 minutes from Girdwood and Portage Glacier and the Chugach National Park, 60 minutes from the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. We are close to bike and world-class ski trails, a grocery store, dry cleaner, 10 minutes from a large shopping mall and movies theaters, 30 seconds from Mother Nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for such a beautiful place! I loved seeing and hearing the loons on the lake, and the planes taking off across the lake. It is as comfortable as being home and immensely nicer than a hotel room. We will definitely return here hopefully in the very near future.

Ann and Tim have been long-time residents of Anchorage; Ann since 1967, Tim following in 1978. Both can't imagine living anywhere else! Tim enjoys fishing, hunting, and building things...he started with our redwood canoe, then built the drift boat, and finished an airplane years ago. He speaks Outdoors with ease. Ann loves to quilt and read good books, spend time with family and friends, and go to the theatre. She currently serves on the Anchorage Concert Association. Both Ann and Tim like meeting their guests of the B&B and traveling the world! They keep busy with their businesses: real estate referrals and consulting, the B&B, and Ann's marketing consulting firm.

Ann Rittal purchased this apartment in 1993

We chose to build our B&B because we wanted to share our piece of heaven on earth with folks from all over the globe. We put in a wall of windows so you can see the lake and wild life at all times. We added a full kitchen to serve our guests who choose to spend a few weeks with us. With our long summer days, our guests are able to enjoy lake living to its fullest. In winter the lake provides a myriad of winter activities including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing.

They say if you happen to live on the water, you are blessed! We sure feel that way. Our guests sometimes run out to the lakeside in their pajamas in the early morning to capture a float plane taking off into the morning sun. Or exclaim to us that they just saw a moose, right out in the yard! They take photos of our hand-carved giant totem pole in the back yard. They swim on hot days, or paddleboat, trailing their hands in the cold water. As near as we are to the airport, it's surprisingly quiet and peaceful here. Some of our guests make our B&B their destination, choosing to relax and see Alaska from their front door. Whether it's for one night or three weeks, we're here for you! Please check our Availability Calendar on our webpage for the absolute latest update.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful B&B and we had a wonderful time there. It is everything as pictured and more! Had a great time fishing in Sand Lake from the paddleboat- the fish were literally jumping in the boat! Ann & Tim are wonderful hosts. They are very accomodating and friendly. It's very convenient to everything in and around Anchorage- close to town and very close to the airport but yet very quiet. It's a great thrill to watch the bush planes landing & taking off right in front of you- especially when you're out on the lake fishing or canoeing. Would recommend to anyone staying in Anchorage and hope to have the opportunity to return ourselves.

We loved our stay here. It felt like we were in the country. Hard to believe the city of Anchorage is just around the corner. My husband & father- in -law took advantage of the paddle boat & caught (& released) 20 fish. We felt welcomed & really enjoyed the home baked goodies. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Anchorage is a metropolitan city with just about every activity available within a couple of hours. Check out anchorage.net for a variety of outfitters and operators to suit your desires. We highly recommend the Anchorage Museum, the Anchorage Heritage Center, hiking Flattop, biking the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, and enjoying the vistas throughout Anchorage...just look up and sigh.
