About Michele Palatas

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I moved to Alaska in 1998 to work in Deadhorse-Prudhoe Bay, in the Arctic on the Beaufort Sea. I quickly became enchanted with this beautiful place we call Alaska! If you love the outdoors, this is the place!

Michele Palatas purchased this house in 2002

Why Michele Palatas chose Anchorage

I purchased this duplex in 2002 along with two more, and made four of the units, fully furnished guesthouses.You may rent both the Cottage and the Cabin (3584196) if you require more room. Since then I have had the pleasure of welcoming guests from all over the world to our city nestled between Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountains.

What makes this house unique

The convenience of being near to downtown and midtown, the Seward Highway heading south and the Glenn Highway heading north, make this a perfect location to get out and experience Anchorage and nearby attractions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for renting us this little cottage! Jeff and I had a wonderful time here and will be back and staying here if possible.

The extra homey touches were the icing on the cake.

The Cottage/Dubenplace Alaska

  • 5 of 5
Incredibly FANTASTIC PLACE!!!! Just like we were at home. We went to visit our daughter who is stationed in Alaska and SHE wanted to live there!! The place was exactly like the pictures and I was proud to show everyone where we were going to be staying. It was like walking into a home away from home. We didn't have to ask for ANYTHING! Everything you needed was there. Michele even had milk and blueberry muffins in the fridge waiting for us!! And yes, after arriving after midnight, we ate every last one of them :) Potted plants welcomed us also on the porch along with places to sit outside in the quaint yard. The only thing to add is, WISH WE WERE STILL THERE!

Thank you for a wonderful week at a place everyone could call home!

Owner's Response: And thank you for your very enthusiastic review of the Cottage! It is great to know that one's hard work and efforts to make your stay as comfortable as possible are paying off. And to have such appreciative, thoughtful and enjoyable guests is doubly satisfying.

Best regards, Michele.

Lovely Anchorage base

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Michele's Cottage for 4 days this June. The place was a perfect size for 2 and was very comfortable. It was nicely decorated and seemed to have everything you needed. Although we didn't cook much it was all there. The washer and dryer were a nice touch along with the fresh flowers and chocolate! Thanks Michele.

Cozy, Comfortable, Very Well Stocked.

  • 5 of 5
We travel often. This lovely cottage may be small in square footage but owner Michele left nothing undone. All the comforts of home. Very comfortable bed with light blocking curtains for those long summer daylight hours. Fluffy towels were better than some expensive hotels. One of the best well equipped kitchens you could find. The washer and dryer was icing on the cake too. Even furnished detergent and dryer sheets. We most definitely will come back here when we return to Anchorage. Do not let the looks of the house beside Micheles location to take away from her very well kept area. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Comfy and Convenient.

  • 5 of 5
I've been meaning to write a review for a while and just forgot! I stayed here for 3 months during the winter and it was great. The property is really comfortable, and while small, does not feel cramped at all. Decor is tasteful, and the kitchen well equipped. It has everything you need for a great stay. I really liked the convenience of the neighborhood, and alley parking is even more handy. If you are without transport you are convenient to bus lines, and within walking distance of downtown. I have no idea why anyone would choose a hotel over the Cottage for a stay in Anchorage - it's way more comfortable and home like, not to mention more affordable. I would have been happy to keep renting if it were within my budget, I enjoyed it that much. I'm glad to see the neighboring unit turned into a vacation rental as well, because my only complaint would have been the neighbor. ;) (sorry Michele, had to say it!).

Anyway, I highly recommend this location - clean, comfy, convenient.

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa.........Thank you for your very kind words. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage!
Yes, the unit next door is now the Cabin, completely remodeled! Our winter rates are more affordable than summer rates, yet include all utilities.
Best to you Melissa!
Michele.

My husband and I stayed for a week in this very nice cottage. It was cozy yet very open, extremely convenient to exploring Anchorage. We found the cottage to be very clean, bright, cheerful and comfortable, well equipped kitchen and nice furnishings. The pictures tell the story.
Michele thank you for your lovely cottage and kindness. We will be back.
