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 Juneau

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.

Clean, Cozy, and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Whale Song Cottage. The cottage itself feels new and is beautiful inside and out. Julie makes it very homey with comfortable pillows, blankets, and luxurious towels and comforters. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and dishes. She also has spices and condiments! In addition, Julie has an amazing collection of movies on DVD. The whole cottage is surrounded by trees and blueberry bushes. A great place to relax!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the use of your cottage. We had a terrific time. I just couldn't make myself throw some food items away; hopefully you can make use of them. We tried to leave everything like we found it. Thanks again, you have a beautiful cottage in a wonderful spot.

Loved the property. The view makes it seem like you are in the heart of the wetland forest.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is plenty large and very well appointed. Julie seems to have thought of everything that someone would want or need.

Quiet little forest cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice little private setting in the middle of the forest. Owners were gracious enough to wait for me after a late flight and rental car pick up in the night. Very unlikely to hear any whale songs at this location. Nor are there any water views. As mentioned previously, the stairs are quite steep. All in all you will have a quiet little stay in a very nice forest cottage with gracious owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our cottage for your stay! Our guests are always welcome to enjoy the water views from the front of our property and the short walk to the beach, and we are often fortunate to hear the whales singing from our property. We hope if you come back to stay you will be able to take advantage of both the water views and the whales from our property while staying in the very private cottage in the woods. Rick and Julie

Awesome cabin off of the beaten path.

  • 5 of 5

The property and cabin are absolutely beautiful, located a short scenic drive from the city. There really are blueberries to pick all around the property, which everyone loved. The cottage was well equipped with everything that we needed, including spare linens.

The owners really went above and beyond by providing a crib for our one year old daughter, and a gate so she would not play on the stairs. This was thoughtful and incredibly helpful. My father slept on the couch and said it was comfortable.

This was the perfect resting spot for all of the activities we did including: hiking up mount Roberts, playing in ice caves at the mendenhall glacier, whale watching, a Tracy arm cruise, and photographing eagles.

For four days, this was a great home base, and my family suggests it to anyone.
