A CITY VIEW B&B SUITE-VACATION RENTAL, DOWNTOWN-GOV'T HILL

Anchorage House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Defining the Alaskan experience, A City View Bed & Breakfast Suite/Vacation Rental is situated on Government Hill, Anchorage's most historic and charming neighborhood. The neighborhood overlooks downtown proper one mile away. The suite is a very bright and cheerful daylight basement. It is a quick 10 minute walk to downtown proper and all of the activities and shopping the downtown area has to offer.

Several parks in the neighborhood offer views of downtown, Mt. McKinley, Mt. Susitna, Cook Inlet, Knik Arm and the Port of Anchorage. A five minute walk will get you to world class salmon fishing in Ship Creek during fishing season. We even have fishing poles and bicycles you can borrow!

Also a short ten minute walk is the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail where you can ski, bike or walk and enjoy the coastal beauty. The Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, The Egan and Dena'ina Convention Centers, and The Anchorage Museum of History and Art are just minutes away.

The Iditarod starts less than a mile from the house. You can enjoy the winter festivities and be home in no time when you're ready for some hot cocoa and a movie! Or, in the Summer, enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine in the backyard around the fire pit after a hard day of fishing, shopping or sightseeing. The house was built in 1960 and strongly withstood the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake. It has been continually and lovingly updated since we bought it in 1991 (We are the second owners).

Beautifully decorated, it was put together with a little bit of romance and a lot of comfort in mind. The 1300 square foot suite welcomes you with a bright and cheerful entry. Ample extras are intended to make your stay very special and memorable. Complimentary coffee, tea and hot cocoa are provided. A continental-style breakfast to enjoy at your leisure is also provided. Upon request, we will stock the unit with grocercies prior to your arrival.

It is intended to be a true home away from home, where you can enjoy a private experience in a perfect location on a beautiful property. Your hosts are immediately available should you need anything to make your stay more enjoyable.

We truly look forward to welcoming you as you plan your trip to Alaska. We are grateful that you are interested in staying at our vacation rental.

Laura is a lifelong Alaskan. Her adventure-seeking family moved here from Southern Californiaha when she was just one year old in 1965. Her family loves the Alaskan outdoors and all of the activities and majestic beauty it offers. Laura is an artist. Some of her work hangs in the B&B, and special aritistic touches abound outside on the decks and in the fenced yard. If you want shopping, dining, entertainment, sightseeing, day trip, or fishing advice, we're here to help! In April of 2011, her family traveled to France and Italy for three weeks and absolutely fell in love with the people, culture, scenery, and history.

Laura Pannone purchased this house in 1991

It's perfectly located on a corner lot in a beautiful and charming destination-neighborhood close to everything, but quiet and friendly.

THE PERFECT INTRO TO ANCHORAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Exactly as described. Comfortable, clean, quiet and quaint. Thanks for a cozy and relaxed intro to anchorage. With downtown only 8 mins. away, situated in a quiet residential neighborhood we felt right at home and smiled every time we passed the swollen, cold, congested hotels of downtown.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This rental is so great!!! It is clean nicely decorated. The extras that Laura puts into it makes it even more special. I was so grateful when we arrived to see that breakfast was already provided for us.we got in late and was so happy that I wouldn't have to wake up early to run out for something to feed my little girl. We seriously has a hard time leaving doing our errands because the home is so comfy. I will for sure be visiting again.

CLEAN, SPACIOUS, WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN ANCHORAGE

  • 5 of 5
This B&B is all that it posts and more! We arrived around 1am in the morning from a late flight and all three of us were pleasantly surprised to find a fully stocked kitchen of foods, snacks, fruit, treats, drinks, yogurt, etc... waiting for us. The interior is clean and spacious and the bedrooms are at opposite ends of the hall offering privacy from one another. Every possible detail to attention has been met to ensure guests needs are met. It doesn't hurt either that the décor is cute, original and unique. Laura was available at our every need yet not imposing at all. We found her extremely helpful and friendly and fell in love with her pet. We especially enjoyed that we could either walk are take a minutes drive to reach downtown Anchorage or any of the nearby sites. Will definitely return when our travels take us to Anchorage again.

THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
Everything as advertised and much more!! Arrived after 1am to a kitchen full of foods, drinks, COFFEE and much more! Entering the very clean, nicely decorated and very spacious rooms put a smile on our all faces and a relaxed feeling of being home! The next morning we enjoyed a beautiful view of the sunrise over the mountains as well as a view of Anchorage. A very safe area and within a minute or two of a nice trail leading up a slight hill directly to downtown Anchorage - perfect for the start of the Iditarod!! We fell in love with Luka as much as the B&B and only wish we had planned more time in Anchorage. All the more reason to return and when we do - this is our Alaskan home!! Oh, and when one of us forgot an item, Laura graciously took the time to ship it home for us. She is a absolute doll, so friendly, fun, helpful, and full of information. A truly gracious hostess (and great artist too)!!

CHRISTMAS AT A CITY VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
My mom, sister, daughter and I spent our Christmas this year at Lauras beautiful B&B. She met us in the wee hours of the morning with Luca and hosted us for Christmas dinner with her awesome sisters. We couldn't have felt more comfortable and welcome. We couldn't get dinner reservations for the next night so Laura called in and got them for us! The apartment was spotless and we had absolutely everything we could possible need. We will highly recommend Lauras for any of our friends and will, hopefully be back again! Thank you Laura for making this a very special Christmas for our family!

Owner's Response: Mary, it was such a pleasure to host your lovely family for Christmas. It is one of my favorite holidays and your family made it that much more special. Even in Winter Alaska is a wonderful place to visit and I was glad to share it with your family.

Right above the heart of downtown and central to all of the must-see/must-do activities. Beautiful views abound from the nine parks in the immediate neighborhood. A quick one-mile trip gets you to downtown shops and restaurants, with local artists fare and uniquely fresh and tasty Alaskan cuisine. The Alaska Native Heritage Museum is a wonderful and welcoming place to learn about and visit with Alaska Natives and their history.
