About Erin

I am a lifelong Alaskan. I was born in Juneau and raised between here and Sitka. I love to travel, camp, hike, ski, snowmobile and photograph my hometown. In 2011, my husband and I started renting vacation homes in Juneau to help travelers experience their family vacation surrounded by beauty, the comforts of home, and lots of space to spread out.

Erin purchased this house in 2013

Why Erin chose Juneau

When this property became available, I wanted to create another incredible home for locals and visitors to enjoy as their personal retreat.

What makes this house unique

My favorite attributes of this property are the gorgeous interior wood work, the awe-inspiring views, and the close proximity to local shopping, restaurants, and attractions.

Right behind the house is the trailhead to the Treadwell Ditch trail and the Dan Moller trail. These are used in Summer for hiking, and it Winter for cross country skiing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The house was perfect for our stay. Comfortable, convenient, nicely decorated, and with modern amenities included- BBQ grill, hot tub, etc. The view is unbeatable! To top it off, the landlord was nice and made the accommodations easy. I highly recommend this house to vacationers in Juneau!"

Perfect Girlfriend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Seven longtime girlfriends (age 65+) gather every year to celebrate our friendship. This house was perfect for us. It was clean and spacious. And the views were spectacular! When not out enjoying the many activities Juneau has to offer, we spent hours around the dining room table and the cozy sitting area. Everything we could have wanted was provided. Thank you Erin!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I left a note in the welcome book, but to re emphasize, we, all 9 of us, really loved it. Especially for the view. There was a few repair problems that need attention before the next reservation of people arrive (things that were broken before we got there). We left it cleaner than it was found, but we had professional cleaners with us.

If we ever go to Alaska again, we will let you find a home for us!!!

Alaska Scenic Retreat was truly a retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Juneau on business and wanted a place to escape to -- this was perfect. There were 4 of us and we had plenty of room. The views were spectacular and the house was exactly as described.

The house was clean and well-maintained and had everything we needed and is only a short drive from downtown Juneau. The owners were there making certain that all was ready for our arrival and told us they were available should we need anything. We called once for a minor issue and they took care of it immediately.

I would highly recommend Alaska Scenic Retreat to anyone visiting Juneau. I only wish we could have spent more time at the home enjoying the hot tub and the views.

Alaska Scenic Retreat June 10th Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family and friends 06/07/17-06/14/17 for a family wedding. Home was clean and spacious. Beautiful views of Juneau Harbor and Gastineau Channel. Plenty of towels and sheets for everyone. Bedrooms & Baths comfortable and very convenient for the crowd of us. Owners left good touring info to easily access. The bird watching was pretty amazing too, the grounds are beautifully landscaped. If I ever went back to Juneau, this is where I would stay again!

Beautiful home...amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The home was super clean and comfortable, really cute, spacious and had comfortable beds and nice linens. The views were amazing and the neighborhood was really nice. I recommend it as a great alternative to the small selection of mediocre hotels in Juneau.
