Best of All Worlds - 1410 Glacier Hwy, Juneau, AK 99801

Pictures and Description

Privacy of a hotel, comfort of a B&B.

One of the best locations in town, gorgeous views, privacy, & restful peace just beyond the edge of the Downtown bustle. Free parking & no stairs!

This wonderful, secure room is in a 900-square-foot unit dedicated to guests. Attached to the quiet owner's very private home it is completely separate & self contained. Share social areas, kitchen, & bathroom with only 1 or 2 other people when the other room is full. To book both rooms see "Best of All Worlds".

The space

Comfort, privacy, seclusion, and personal touches throughout make this a welcoming place to rest your head. It will feel like your home away from home with everything you need to charge forward in business or recharge on vacation.

Though this listing is for one private bedroom, it is contained within a 900-square-foot unit dedicated to guests so there are no worries about the owner's personal belongings or pets crowding your space. The guest apartment is completely walled off from the owner's unit so you can relax and be yourself. You will also have a dedicated parking space. Even better, you will only be sharing the kitchen and bathroom with only 1 or 2 peoples when the unit's other room is booked. Want even more privacy and a little more room? You can book the entire unit with 2 private bedrooms, when available (see our listing for "The Best of All Worlds").

The cozy and tidy non-smoking accommodations offer gorgeous views, comfortable social and dining areas, high-speed Internet access, a fully-equipped kitchen, and free laundry machines (detergent not included). Guests of this new bed and breakfast will enjoy complimentary self-serve breakfast and snack items. With prior arrangements I may also be able to provide temporary freezer space for your fish or game.

Your room offers a filtered view of Gastineau Channel and the surrounding mountain range. You will find a comfortable bed and bedding fully encased for prevention of spills, dust mites, and other nasties. Enjoy luxury, high-thread-count, sateen linens; an assortment of encased pillows of varying density and design; ultra-soft extra blankets; and an encased down comforter in duvet cover. (If down is not to your liking, please let me know in advance and I may be able to switch it out for a synthetic fiber fill comforter.) You will also have plush robes available for your use during your stay. You room also has a remote-controlled electronic fireplace; television with Roku access to movies, network programming, and news, including voice-activated, headphone-capable remote for silent viewing; desk with lighted vanity mirror, work light, and surge-protected power strip; closet and drawers; luggage rack; shoe rack; and more.

The bathroom also has an electronic fireplace with remote to make sure you are toasty warm after using the combination shower tub. There are two sinks at the double vanity; free laundry machines; and a commode with a night-time lighted bowl to guide you when nature calls you from your deep slumber.

The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator with freezer where you will find chilled, filtered water and a small variety of goodies. There is a toaster, coffee maker, automatic hot water boiler, microwave, and even an oven/range for those that enjoy the adventure of preparing their own meals on site. Afterward the dual sink and dishwasher make clean up of the provided dishes, pots, pans, and utensils a snap.

Guest access

This is a self-contained, fully-equipped, two-bedroom unit. When you reserve just one bedroom you will have private access to only one bedroom and you will share the kitchen, laundry, bathroom, and living room spaces with another occupant (when booked).

Self-serve check-in is available with keycode access to the front door and your private bedroom(s). Self-serve check-out is also available through the same means. The keycode deadbolt lock on the front door locks automatically seconds after the door is fully closed and each bedroom has both a keycode handset lock and a security hasp. The keycode locks can be opened by either a key or a code depending on your preference.

Note: when you reserve the entire unit you have access to everything therein including two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and living room.

Interaction with guests

As the owner, I live onsite in a completely separate unit. The guest unit is dedicated to you so you will not have to deal with any personal belongings or pets in your space. I am quiet and generally keep to myself but strive to strike a happy balance between independence and friendliness. As much as possible I let the guest set the tone for the amount of desired interaction. I will be available by text, email, or phone to assist or check on things as needed. When the rooms are rented to separate tenants I tend to be present more often to remove trash and check in, depending on the length of stays booked.

Other things to note

We live on the edge of a National Forest where wildlife are prominent and active. Windows and doors must be kept closed and locked when unattended and when guests are sleeping. Please be aware of the potential presence of wildlife and take care not to disturb or harm them. Deer, bears, and birds are common! It is unlawful to feed them and attracts them, causing dangerous problems for both people and animals. Ensure that you are bear aware and do not leave food or trash unattended. Even leaving food in your vehicle can attract bears and they can be so determined as to break in and cause severe damage.

Weather changes occur frequently and quickly in Alaska. We are a maritime rain forest but we do get snow and ice throughout the winter. When it is snowing, please let me know when you may need to come and go and I will ensure that the walk and drive are clear. You may be asked to move your vehicle temporarily to allow snow plow/blower access.

The outdoor areas beyond the immediate parking and covered entrance area are strictly off limits. While there are animals present on the property, they are contained in private areas and will not interact with you or enter your unit. Please do not wander around the property or enter any private doorways, gates, or buildings. This is both for your safety and the safety of the animals that share our home.

Please note, City and Borough of Juneau code requires the collection of 5% sales tax and 7% bed tax (total 12%) from all bnb and hotel guests staying in a facility for 29 consecutive days or less. Code also prohibits innkeepers from absorbing the cost for their guests and paying it out of the net receipts. This tax will be collected separately.
