Anchorage Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Private 710 sq ft Suite includes private Bedroom/Bath, Dining and Living Room

Our desire is to create a country feeling in the middle of the city. Our 'urban farm' includes chickens, bees, a greenhouse and vegetable gardens along with beautiful seasonal flowers. Our friendly chocolate lab, Koko, will surely greet you as will Jeepers, our tuxedo cat. Not to worry, they are not allowed in the B&B area! You have the best of two worlds when staying at Gardenside B&B... your own private 710 square foot space (it really is ALL yours) where you can actually spread out and make yourself at home and at the same time have the opportunity to tap into the local attractions and offerings provided by your local hosts. How sweet is that?

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Heather Johnson

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

Why Heather Johnson chose Anchorage

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
My husband & kids stayed at this property for 3 nights and just loved it. The backyard with the chickens made us feel right at home. The breakfast fare was yummy and we appreciated the spacious eating area. The host was very nice and helped us try to clean grease off our luggage. I'd stay here again.

Owner's Response: It is always so satisfying to have guests who appreciate our offerings! The chickens free-ranging in our backyard seem to bring a sense of calm and times from the past when life was simpler.

Wonderful stay in Anchorage

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful introduction to Anchorage staying at Heather and Doug's B&B. The property was private, clean and very comfortable. It overlooked a beautiful garden (with chickens roaming free). Heather is warm and kind and made us feel very welcome. She gave us great information about what to see, where to eat, etc. The fridge was well stocked with organic and homemade items. Highly recommended.

Gardenside B&B is beautiful, comfortable, and well located. Heather has created a lovely vacation get away. Our family of 4 started and ended our AK 17 day adventure for a total of 4 nights there. We were so impressed with so many things from the little stocked refrigerator with delicious high quality breakfast foods to the generous space of the apartment. Heather often went out of her way to provide so much for us including a comfortable cot bed for our teenage daughter and great local information. We (especially our 9 year old son) enjoyed her delightful animals and garden. Her dinner suggestion (Beartooth/theater side) was so good we ate there twice. When we next visit Anchorage we will choose Gardenside B&B again.

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!
