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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed here for a week and it was wonderful. Very quiet and peaceful. Close enough to town to get the things you need, but far enough away to get away from all the tourism. It was a perfect trip. I would definitely stay here again if we ever visitJuneau again.

Seclusion

  • 4 of 5

Away from the cruise crowds in Juneau. Clean, but steep stairs to loft bed.

Nice accommodation with extensive collection of DVDs.

Host provided an unsolicited bouquet of flowers for our anniversary.

Beautiful, secluded cottage with everything you need for your stay...and then some!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for ourselves as we prepared for our sons wedding. It was conveniently located out of town, close to the rehearsal dinner location, (Auke Recreation shelter) and within a reasonable distance from the wedding location. We needed the privacy as we prepared for the big event. Our son and daughter in law enjoyed the location so much they wanted it for their own on their wedding night!

Julie & Rick were so gracious they allowed photos of the bride &

Her Maids the day of the wedding. We would definitely highly recommend this location (and it's wonderful owners) and hope to return again in the future. The dappled sunlight through the trees was an amazing thing to see on the wedding day in Juneau! We are so thankful!

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!
