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!"

Most comfortable stay in Juneau

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were extremely comfortable, the views were amazing, we did rent a car for access but nothing was very far away and easy to get to. We really enjoyed our stay!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home a couple of years ago so we decided to return because this property is fantastic. It was every bit as wonderful this time as it was during the summer of 2014. In fact, we are returning again in August of this year. You cannot go wrong with this rental. It's very clean and excellently maintained. Customer service is perfect. Our family did whale watching, Mendenhall Glacier visit and walk, hatchery visit, helicopter to the Herbert Glacier, and zip line tour. Enjoy!!!
