Overview

About the property

Whale Song Cottage is nestled in the beautiful Southeast Alaskan rain forest of Juneau, Alaska. The cottage is surrounded by lush vegetation, including an abundance of blueberries, ripe for your picking. Just steps away from water views of Favorite Channel and a short walk to the beach, Whale Song Cottage is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle. A glimpse of the majestic humpback whales that grace the waters of Alaska can often be experienced in front of the owner’s property. Listen carefully- you may hear them sing!

Our cottage is your true ‘home away from home’. The kitchen is fully furnished with dishware and glassware, pots and pans, toaster, blender and microwave, propane oven and stove top, and full sized refrigerator. As you enter the cozy living room/dining area you will discover a propane fireplace and dining table with seating for four. The living room is furnished with a queen sized sofa couch, rocking chair, TV with cable, DVD player, DVD library, and the main level of the cottage has a full bathroom that includes a bathtub w/shower. All plush towels are provided as well as a hair dryer.

The main sleeping loft features a queen sized bed that provides high quality sheets, extra pillows and a down comforter.

The back porch is spacious and seating for four is provided so that you can enjoy the surrounding lush Alaska environment. An electric grill is also provided to grill your freshly caught local fish!

Whale Song Cottage is private yet you are just 6 miles from the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal, 10 miles from the Juneau International Airport, and 20 miles from downtown Juneau.

About Julie Moe

Your hosts are life-long Alaskans, born to Alaskan pioneers when Alaska was still a Territory. For many years, we have had friends and family visit us from the “lower 48 “and they instantly fall in love with the unique beauty of Southeast Alaska and our special Whale Song cottage.

Our cottage is nestled at the back of our 1.3 acre property, and it provides a true sense of the Alaskan Experience. This is why in 2015 we have chosen to share our little piece of paradise with our guests who wish to experience what is commonly called the Last Frontier. We are excited to offer our very special Whale Song Cottage for your visit to the Juneau area and we look forward to your future reviews.

Why Julie Moe chose Alaska

Our property and cottage is a true depiction of the Alaskan lifestyle, offering a setting that surrounds you with peaceful tranquility. Private and away from town, yet just minutes from all the attractions and activities of the Capital City of Alaska.

Peaceful and secluded cottage experience

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whalesong Cottage. The cottage is tucked-away amongst a quiet forest of hemlock trees and blueberry shrubs. Only rarely did we hear the sound of a vehicle in the distance driving down Glacier Highway - but that was only if we were outside of the cottage, whereas inside the cottage we enjoyed peace and quiet. The pictures of the property accurately reflect the accommodations inside and the setting outside of the cottage. The kitchen was fully stocked with common cookware and the dining set was sufficient for four guests. For entertainment, several board games and card games were provided, and the television was equipped with DirectTV while nearly 100 different DVDs/Blu-Rays were also provided. The internet worked very well. We had cell phone service during our entire stay. The outdoor deck was comfortable and included a small grill and several chairs and a table. The deck faced a hemlock forest and was as private as any deck could be. The bed was queen size and quite comfortable. The bathroom was clean, modern, and stocked with clean towels. Overall, we were very comfortable and happy with our rental and found the price to be very agreeable. If you are visiting Juneau and do not wish to stay in a hotel, motel, or B&B then we highly recommend Whalesong Cottage. We certainly felt right at home during our stay. The proprietors, Julie and Rick, were very kind and did an excellent job of showing us around the property and cottage upon arrival. We thank them both for providing this excellent lodging option in Juneau!

Cozy cabin surrounded by rain forest & blueberries

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in August. This place is awesome! It was super clean and well stocked. We wanted for nothing. It was cozy with a bed to die for. I wanted to take it home with us. A nice deck which looked out into the rain forest with a grill, table and chairs and loungers. It was so quiet! Nice well equipped kitchen. We can't say enough! Our hosts were very helpful with things to see and places to eat. We had fresh blueberries everyday which grew all around the cabin. We loved staying here and wish we were back there right now! Don't hesitate to stay at Whale Song in Juneau it will not disappoint.

One More Night Please!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first HomeAway experience and we really enjoyed it ( and we didn't want to leave ;) ). This little cottage was everything and more of what we expected. Julie and Rick were amazing and friendly and were the perfect hosts. The cabin was very clean, quiet, and it felt very peaceful. They have everything that you would need for a wonderful stay. We would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to stay in Juneau, AK.

Whale song cottage, Juneau, Alaska

  • 5 of 5

Whale Song cottage is a lovely property in a wooded setting near views of the water. The cottage is beautifully appointed, very clean and has all you need to enjoy your stay. This is our second visit there and since we have family in Juneau we hope to return.

Warm, cozy, pristinely maintained, and private!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled extensively in Alaska for a total of five separate multi-week trips, and always prefer to stay in private, stand-alone cottages and cabins. This was by far the nicest one we've stayed in! Though the cabin is adjacent to the owner's home it is totally private and secluded. The kitchen is stocked with dishes and cutlery (including the first decent set of knives I've seen in one of these cottages!) that were obviously purchased just for the cottage and not leftovers from home. Full set of small appliances, including a Keurig! The bed was as comfortable as home, the hot water blasting in the shower. I can't say enough about how well done this rental is. I can't think of how they could do a better job here. Bravo.

Oh, and about customer service: we needed to ship some camping gear ahead of our arrival and the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. Could not ask for more.
