In-house massages are available by appointment.

Your unit is fully private and is down a short, covered, lighted set of 14 stairs. The unit is next to the woods so not only does it have spectacular views of Juneau, the mountains and the water, but also has the feel of being tucked into the woods. It has two bedrooms, great room with dining area and table and chairs, full kitchen with island stool seating, full bathroom, pantry, a back family room with more coaches, and a private deck with tables, chairs, and propane BBQ.

Directly to the right of the unit is a forest wilderness’ area that includes a nature path leaving from the unit.

A short wilderness trail begins at the unit and a five minute walk up the street takes you to the trailhead of one of the best trails in Juneau - the Dan Moller trail. This three-mile trail ends at the Dan Moller Cabin, a Forest Service public day use cabin that includes a heater. Nice place to dry out and have lunch. You can rent the cabin for the night from the Forest Service for a small fee.

Your private deck is partially covered and includes deck chairs, table and a propane bbq. Inside the sliding glass doors is a great room with a 42” flat screen with DVD, dining room with table and four chairs, a large comfortable couch a modern chair recliner – great for reading, aka napping.

Three stools surround the stove\cooking\kitchen island area. The kitchen is nicely equipped with full oven, range, dish washer and double wide fridge with ice and filtered water and many small appliances.

A full washer and dryer are also private for you along with a sitting and family room in the back with an office area, a pull-out bed. This family room is a great place for the kids to spread-out or a quiet place to work.

There is a laptop for your use in the unit.

The bathroom has a tiled, heated floor with full tub\shower. Bathroom is pass-through so you can get to it directly from the main bedroom or the hallway.

Both bedrooms have comfortable queen beds, night stands, closet, clocks, IPhone players, and other amenities. Bedroom one also has its own flat screen with full cable with HBO and DVD.

The dining area has a table with four chairs and there is an additional full-sized table on the deck with four chairs and two extra around the corner.

There is a road bike and a mountain bike for your use parked at your unit – including helmets.

The unit is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to the local Foodland IGA grocery store, restaurants and bars. An additional 5 to 10 minute walk takes you to the heart of downtown Juneau. It is 12 minute drive to Costco or Fred Meyers.

High-speed wireless Internet is included with your stay.

We want to make this your relaxing vacation get away. We’re there if you need anything, but if you like your privacy, then our paths will not likely pass unless you need something.

The City bus system will take you anywhere in Juneau including within a half mile of the glacier visitor center.

We’re confident that you’ll love the place and the location. Enjoy!

Quiet, Convenient, and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (adults) stayed here for a long weekend after two of us returned from a visit to Glacier Bay National Park. The location is easy to access and in a safe, lovely neighborhood. Ann Marie is terrific (we didn't meet Steve) and gave us some good advice about the area, including a wonderful massage therapist. I would definitely stay here again and imagine that our parents would love to relax on the deck while we go hike to the blue caves at Mendenhall Glacier. What a beautiful area (even when smothered in clouds).

Breath taking view of the bay and mountains plus all the amenities of a fully furnished apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This condominium exceeded our expectations! We were welcomed with a personal note and homemade rhubarb muffins. The unit had everything we needed from a modern washer and dryer and kitchen appliances to plenty of cookware, bakeware and utensils.

The living room is open and the view is gorgeous. The furnishings suggest a mountain get-away and include deck furniture and an outdoor grill. We enjoyed coffee from the deck every morning and watched the cruise ships arrive for a day of shopping and sightseeing.

The four adults in our party had plenty of room to sleep and relax. There are two TV's, board games and good internet. The bathroom is attractive and has two entries, one to the master bedroom.

The unit is five minutes away from downtown Juneau and about fifteen minutes from the airport. We plan to return in a few years and would not consider staying anywhere else!

Awesome place, awesome views, awesome hosts

  • 5 of 5

"Relax on Blueberry Hill" is the perfect name for the perfect get away place. Steve and Ann-Marie are everything you would want in a host and hostess. We were there to visit our daughter and she was able to get into the rental with some groceries before we arrived later that evening. Steve and Ann-Marie were available if we needed anything and they also gave us our privacy. Even though they reside upstairs, the rental felt like our own place. We were able to watch the resident eagle from our deck almost daily, and even got to meet one of the family cats who was as friendly and warm as our hosts. Steve came down with a warm blueberry and rhubarb cobbler fresh out of the oven that Ann-Marie had just baked. They even had a dish of chocolates for us near the comfy sofa and chair. If you are looking for an awesome place to stay, away from the noise and congestion of downtown Juneau, look no further than Blueberry Hill. You won't be disappointed. We will definitely stay there again next time we visit Juneau. Thank you so much Steve and Ann-Marie. We appreciate all the special touches and thoughtful accommodations you provided for our lovely visit to Blueberry Hill.

P.S. The pizza at the Island Bar on Douglas Island is the best pizza we've ever tasted! Wish we had this back here in Minnesota.

Mark, Nancy and Molly

You won't need anything else!

  • 5 of 5

Whether you like Blueberries or not, you're going to love this condo on

Blueberry Hill. We had a fantastic time staying at this beautiful 2 bedroom,

1 bath, kitchen, dining and family room condo. Everything we needed was

provided for us. My wife and I tried to think of anything Ann-Marie and

Steve (Owners) had forgotten but the truth is they've thought of everything!

From the time we arrived late, there was pizza in the refrigerator waiting

for us. It was like leaving our home in VA and having everything we use on

daily basis waiting for us. We had a beautiful view from the deck of the

city of Juneau and the Gastineau Channel. Each morning I would go out on the

deck and eat my protein bar and there would be a Bald Eagle in the tree

right in front of me. I was totally amazed and in awe every day I went outside.

Blueberry Hill is close to everything! It takes approximately 5-7 minutes to

drive downtown for shopping or to just go to the grocery store.

For those of you that would like a nice glass of wine or another type of

adult beverage, there is a small store 2 minutes away by car or 5 minutes by


Free Wi-Fi is provided, a favorite for my teenage daughters. They felt right

at home and didn't want to leave. Truth be told...I didn't either.

If you're on the fence and trying to determine where you want to lodge,

trust me, look no further. Blueberry Hill is what you want!

Safe Travels!
