YEAR ROUND: 4-ACRE MOUNTAIN VIEW RETREAT, 2-KING-BEDROOM CEDAR HOME

Juneau Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Fireweed House provides lodging for travelers who prefer complete privacy, with the convenience of an 8-minute drive to the downtown Juneau historic district. In this secluded location, there are no other visible neighboring houses.

Located on a 4-acre parcel on Douglas Island--just a short drive across the bridge to Juneau--Fireweed House offers an all-cedar Guest House--with vaulted ceilings, 2 king bedrooms, Jacuzzi bath, laundry, wood burning stove, luxurious linens, a 900-square foot wrap-around deck with gas BBQ, marble-tile and slate floors, Italian tile counter tops, plus many features including a new 5-burner gas range, Wi-Fi, and Cable TV.

Although the Guest House comfortably sleeps 4, a futon and full-size sofa can extend sleeping for an additional 1-2 children, if needed, in the Main Room.

For couples traveling together, additional sleeping and privacy may be added with Fireweed Apartment which accommodates 2 adults plus a child with a queen pillow-top bed, a single fold-up bed, another private Jacuzzi bath, a second kitchen, and a second gas BBQ. The additional space also has access to a separate laundry.

Choose Fireweed House and you will not be disappointed--whether you are on vacation, looking for a business retreat, searching for a stopover during relocation, or a short-term rental--look to a new experience over a hotel and you will be pleasantly surprised with this beautiful location!!

AVAILABLE YEAR-ROUND.

Jeff and Danith met in Alaska about 30 years ago and decided to share the joy and the beauty of their homes in the Tongass National Forest with other travelers. They created and established the Fireweed House and Guest House complex and have continued to improve the standard of excellence for visitor lodging to Juneau over the last 19 years.

Jeffrey and Danith Watts purchased this cabin in 1995

This unique property is comprised of three separate homes on a four-acre parcel--there are no other such properties available to visitors in the Juneau area.

The Guest House is totally secluded but is connected by a short wetlands path to the Main House where the owners reside to provide on-sight management and travel advice if desired. In developing the property, the pristine Alaskan wilderness and the magnificent views have been maintained --yet all in close proximity to the many Juneau travel adventures, shopping, and dining.

And with the ability to add Fireweed Apartment, larger groups traveling together can stay at the same complex but enjoy their own independent private, plush accommodations.

As we developed Fireweed House, we wanted to maintain the incredible warmth and the special touches of the Guest House, the lovely view and the ambiance of the Apartment, and the details that would convey to guests just how much we care about the success of each and every traveler's stay in Juneau.

This rental exceeded all my expectations. It was a true winter wonderland. The house was cozy and gave the feel of being in a cabin in the middle of the woods. It was truly an oasis in the trees. The twinkling lights on the path leading to the door made for a magical first impression, and after a day of shopping in crowds it was nice to feel like you were disappearing into the woods. Soaking in the jacuzzi tub, while the fire crackled, was exactly what I needed after battling the holiday crowds. Definitely the best place I've stayed in Juneau, ever. Will make it the only place I stay from now on. Perfect for family with full Kitchen and Washer and Dryer, and being pet friendly it made even the family pets feel at home. Usually after traveling you can't wait to get home;However with this rental I hated to leave our little sanctuary in the woods. Thanks for a memorable Relaxing stay, just what this family needed. Eventhough we are from Alaska, this rental made us feel part of the true Alaska Wilderness. Deeer tracks in the snow right off the porch and friendly little squirrels running along the porch railing. This was just an incredibly special place to stay. It made the whole trip a great experience. I found my family just wanting to hang out instead of going in to town. This would be a great place to get away from it all and reconnect with family. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Lovely space, bring earplugs.

Very welcoming hosts. Go for the quiche - especially if you won't have time to cook when you arrive. Delicious. As you enter it smells of wonderful cedar. Very cozy but well spaced out living/dining area. Nice jacuzzi tub kept 4 adults clean without running low on hot water. Walls of bedroom are thin, and unfortunately you can hear everything going on in the adjacent rooms. Being next to the bathroom you hear all the plumbing. The other room has very noisy hot water tank and both bedrooms have aging, clanging baseboards. We solved this by wearing earplugs and turning off the heat at night. There were plenty of blankets but it made for a cold morning in the bedroom.

Our family of four had a relaxing weekend in Juneau. We had more than enough space. It was great being tucked into such a quiet and beautiful setting. We had a chance to rest and re-charge, and would love to stay again another time.

Four of us rented this cabin for the weekend. It was very comfortable, clean and cozy. Every time we left we could not wait to get back.
We had a lovely time.

Our best wishes,

Fun start to our Alaskan vacation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We started our two week vacation with five nights in Juneau staying in this lovely cabin in the woods. As the listing states, the property is located near enough to enjoy the city but far enough off from the crowds. Juneau and the surrounding area offered us tons to do, including hiking, fishing and touring the magnificent landscapes so it was wonderful to have a warm, clean cabin, and comfy beds to come home to. After a busy day, we found ourselves relaxing on the porch with wine glasses in hand. Although we like to eat out a lot when we travel, we found ourselves grilling fish or getting takeout and spending several evenings at this lovely little home. Also, had we not stayed there, we would not have discovered the beauty of Douglas Island itself which should not be missed.
Thanks to our hosts for offering us a great spot to begin our trip and for allowing us the privacy and comfort we sought for our Alaskan adventure.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your terrific review! We truly enjoyed meeting all of you, too. The Fireweed Guest House is a wonderful destination unto itself and the July weather and wildlife cooperated to allow some beautiful days with excellent photo opportunities during your visit. Hope you get a chance to return again!

Douglas Island 4-acre parcel/ 8 min. from downtown***

Juneau is a beautiful state capital with many contrasts--the icy landscapes of winter, the refreshing rain in our forever-green landscape, the crisp blue summer skies with billowy white clouds, the long daylight of summer (18+ hours in June), and the short daylight of winter (about 6 1/2 in December).

With the 1,500 square mile Juneau Icefield at our backdoor, we always encourage summer guests to book a flightseeing trip or a helicopter ride to get the birds-eye view of this magnificent glacial landscape. Another absolute 'must' for our visitors is the Tracy Arm Fjord cruise--a day-long adventure that your hosts will be glad to set up for you and your family--if you want to watch for whales, seals, bears, mountain goats and eagles and see huge icebergs up close, this is the day-long trip for you!

With time and this location as your home base, consider adding a day-long trip to Skagway to experience the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad with an excursion to the Summit; a day at Admiralty Island National Monument to the Brown Bear Sanctuary--guided and unguided brown bear viewing is best in July and August; a zipline adventure; enjoy the Tram ride up Mount Roberts for beautiful hiking or just for lunch; a day-long king salmon or halibut fishing charter; a walking tour of the Juneau historic district; sea kayaking; the Mendenhall Glacier--one of the few glaciers in the world to which you can drive; and days and days of incredible hiking and exploring around the Juneau area!
