All linens and towels provided. Cleaning supplies are available and the unit can be cleaned during your stay, on special request, for a $100 fee. The kitchen is stocked for your use with pots, pans, place settings, dishes, utensils, coffee pot, tea, coffee, creamer and sugar. There is cable TV, a DVD/VCR player and Wi-Fi Internet. Two bicycles with helmets and locks are free for guests' use. Ample parking on a quiet street.
Your hosts are Jess and Nate: We have recently returned to Alaska after having been out of state 10+ years, having traveled the world, and finally realizing there is no place like home—especially when your home is Alaska. While we both have our professional day jobs, we love to spend our free time enjoying the cultural opportunities that abound in the Anchorage area and exploring the outdoors-- whether kayaking, hiking, fishing, running, biking, or cross-country skiing. Nate was born and raised in Anchorage and, as a sometimes musician, is tuned into the local music scene. Jess grew up in Eagle River after her dad moved her family up to Alaska to try his luck as a bush pilot. She worked her way through college as a professional tour guide on the Alaska Railroad and later as a tour director leading groups through Alaska and the Yukon Territory of Canada.
While the private apartment is attached to our home, we respect your privacy and leave you to your own devices unless you have questions or concerns-- we are available by phone.
We welcome all visitors: We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, creed, gender, or sexual orientation.
Enjoyed our stay very much. We were here to help our son move into the base. The Spruce Roost is convenient to both the base and downtown. It was great to kick back in the evenings in a homey environment. We will definitely keep you in mind for future trips.
This was a great apartment in a quiet neighborhood; but just blocks from great restaurants, the coastal trail and Westchester Lagoon. Walking distance from one of the best restaurants in Anchorage Bear Tooth.
Nate and Jess had the unit prepared immaculately with amazing attention to detail. Paper products, sun block, bug spray, two bicycles that we used several days, welcome letter with basic information about the place and the Internet password, binder full of local food menus. It was amazing how much thought went into making the unit ready for out of town guests to enjoy.
This was a working vacation for me and the Internet in the unit and cellular coverage from ATT was great at this location.
I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
I spent about a week in this lovely separate apartment in Jess and Nate's house. They were wonderful hosts and definitely know the area well, despite having lived out of state for many years. In addition to being my hosts, therefore, they were able to provide ideas of what to see and where to go. In addition the rental was clean, comfortable and in a neighborhood of single family homes.
What a charming spot! It has the flavor of being in the Alaskan countryside but is right in the heart of a lively and colorful Anchorage neighborhood that has lots to do, with nightlife and good restaurants! It was impeccably clean and newly decorated. I loved the special touches such as cozy bathrobes and slippers to use during my stay. My week vacation was in the Alaskan winter time near the holidays, and tasteful holiday decor added to the charm. The hosts are gracious and helpful. I highly recommend this lovely vacation location. The cross country ski trails are amazing, and downtown Anchorage has lots to do in any season.
Our location is right in the middle of it all, but tucked away in the trees. Nestled between Northstar, Hillcrest, and the Spenard neighborhoods of Anchorage, this hideaway in the spruces is just a short stroll, ski, or a 5 minute bike-ride down the hill to Westchester Lagoon, the Chester-creek Greenbelt, and the Coastal Trail which link to downtown or to Point Worenzof and Kincaid Park. A great spot to start your Alaska adventure, we are mere blocks from the Northern Light/Spenard outdoor enthusiast Meccas of REI, Alaska Mountaineering and Hiking, and several cycling stores. We are easy walking distance to several local shops, grocery stores, a movie theater, and eateries and a 5-minute drive, 15-minute bike-ride or 30-minute walk to downtown. While close to downtown, we are on a quiet dead-end street without through traffic.
Other Activities: hiking, snow-shoeing, shopping, coastal trail, spa
