Your hosts, Heather and Doug Johnson, are excited to share their home and love of alaska with you. Doug is the fourth generation of his family to live in Alaska. Doug's family came to this great land in 1898 to mine gold in nome. Heather, on the other hand, came from the tropics. A third generation kama'aina (local) from the Big Island of Hawaii, Heather came to Alaska in 1976 and immediately fell in love with the land and its people. Together they share a love of travel and adventure and have an appreciation for what travelers need.

Heather Johnson purchased this apartment in 1959

The Johnson family home was built in 1958. Doug was three years old when he moved from his 5th Avenue home to where we currently live on West 20th Avenue, which was then considered the boondocks and great moose hunting grounds. Our home was remodeled in 1998. After our children moved out to pursue their university studies, we decided to renovate a space for fellow travelers and officially formed Gardenside Bed and Breakfast in 2012.

Our spacious 710 sq. ft. executive suite has a cozy private bedroom and bath. Also, one can relax in a sitting room or take part in a meal at the dining room table.

We are within walking distance to downtown Anchorage and also are located in the quaintness of Spenard. Chester Creek is in our back yard, giving guests access to fabulous x-c ski trails in the winter and wonderful bike paths in the summer.

Thank you so much Heather for making our visit to the last frontier special. Enjoyed the accomodations as well as the location. The use of the bikes was great (nice to be so close to the chester trail and acoastal trail). Thanks again for opening up your lovely home to me and my wife.

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed two nights on our way to and from some national parks and really loved it there. The suite is very pleasant, spacious, comfortable and clean, has a separate entrance. We enjoyed the "wildlife" and the beautiful garden, and the breakfast was very good with delicious Hawaiian jams and honey. The hosts were lovely, very helpful and made sure we had all we needed. We would highly recommend this B&B.

The Gardenside B&B was everything it says and more! The bedroom, bathroom and living area were clean, comfortable, roomy, and very much like home. The setting was beautiful! This was our first vacation in Alaska and Anchorage was our homebase. Heather strived to make sure we had everything we needed and was a wonderful host. She provided quality breakfast foods (including her own honey!) and quality bath items. The private entrance was great so we didn't feel like we were disturbing anyone when returning late at night. We will be truly disappointed if we can't stay at the Gardenside B&B next time we are in Anchorage!

ALASKAN ADVENTURE

Gardenside B&B was our home away from home while we were in Anchorage. It was comfortable, clean, roomy and had everything we needed. Heather is a gracious host. We looked forward to her home baked goodies and organic food in the refrigerator. The back yard was delightful! We would highly recommend this B&B.

BEAUTIFUL - COMFORTABLE - WELL-LOCATED!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a great vacation rental! We are two adults + one child, and we were very comfortable in this bright and airy space. Plenty of room to spread out, and all the amenities you could hope for: comfortable bed &pillows; great shower; large living room; kitchenette with toaster oven, coffee maker, fridge, etc. Hostess Heather provides info about the best local spots, tourist must-sees, and even gives you coupons for discounts at particular attractions.

The outdoor space is lovely, and you're within easy walking distance of a big park and also a biking trail. Socializing with the dog, cat and chickens is optional!

Everything was spotless inside, and the outdoor spaces feature lovingly maintained gardens and furniture.

Highly recommended - we'll be back.

Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful stay at the B&B! Our hosts were so generous & accommodating to our family. We stayed at Gardenside for about a week in February with our 2 young kids and it was the perfect amount of space for us to spread out & relax. The kids loved sledding in the yard & feeding the chickens. It was close driving distance to everything. Our hosts provided lots of great resources about Alaskan sightseeing & events, and were happy to answer questions & suggest local activities. Complete with a good library, lotsa toys for the kids and amazing fresh breakfasts delivered in the morning, we couldn't have asked for a better stay! Thank you again for being so helpful and kind :)
