About Teresa Busch

We've lived in Juneau for 24 years and consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have found such a beautiful environment and community to call home. We both grew up in Oregon and are now splitting time between the 2 places that we call home. We wanted others to experience the beauty and serenity of our cove when we are away.

There truly is no other place like it.

Teresa Busch purchased this house in 2004

Why Teresa Busch chose Alaska

We purchased Otter Way Cottage after leasing it for a year. When you wake up every morning and no matter what the weather looks like outside you still feel like you are on vacation we knew that was where we wanted to be. The front of the house is all windows and faces the water. There are days you feel like you are watching a nature channel through the windows. With porpoises that play in the cove, eagles, herons, otters and whales you won't want to leave the cove.

What makes this house unique

The million dollar view, the convenient location and the quiet neighborhood will make you fall in love with Indian Cove. Rent a Kayak 5 minutes down the road at Auke Bay Kayak Rentals and paddle out to Indian Island that sits right in front of the Cottage.

Build a bonfire in the fire pit and look for the Aurora. Bar-B-Q on the expansive deck and wait for the tide to go out then walk across the land bridge to the little island and watch the sunset. So many things to enjoy.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

My film crew stayed here whilst filming in Juneau and they were pretty blown away! Apparently the views were even better than the pictures! The workshop downstairs was a real bonus and perfect for sorting kit.

Teresa was the perfect owner, very accommodating, helpful and clear on instructions; and more than happy to answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this place and am already looking at booking the crew back in when they are back in Juneau. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Katie, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I'm happy to hear that all went well with the crew and that they enjoyed their work stay at our cottage. I know that they experienced an unexpected snow fall when they were there and I'm happy that it didn't put a damper on things. We would love to have you back again. Teresa

Blessed beyond measure

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time at the cottage and in Juneau. We used the cottage as "home base" for lots of hikes, whale watching, and general adventure-seeking! The cottage was really cozy, well-provisioned, and situated in a proverbial paradise. We watched porpoises play in the emerald blue Cove every morning while drinking coffee on the patio. We made some fun meals in great kitchen. We walked out to the little island at low tide. We read books, napped, played board games...all one could hope for in a vacation. Thanks for allowing us the use of the cottage. We had such an amazing and memorable trip.

A lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the cottage. It is bright, even on rainy days, with windows framing spectacular views. Bald eagles, otters, and seals were common sights. Even with all the nearby hiking and exploring, it was hard to leave the house, as it was so attractive, cozy and comfortable. We hated to leave.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

I loved waking up the the view of the cove and wildlife. I slept in the basement and it was perfectly fine and comfortable. The basement room looks right out into the water and it was a wonderful experience. My colleague slept on the top level and had no complaints. The kitchen and living space were open and delightful with full windows facing the cove.

Perfect place!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a perfect location. The view off the deck and from the yard allowed for hours of wildlife watching. The house was full of anything you could need.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Otter Way Cottage was perfect for our needs, and we found the place very clean when we arrived! Everything was in perfect working order, and we so much appreciated all the "extras" that were provided by the owners. Our college age daughter loved having her own space on the lower level! The view from the cottage was breathtaking, and it was so peaceful and relaxing having our morning coffee and waiting for the sun to come up. If ever in the Juneau area again, this place would be first on our list! Thank you, Teresa and Rick!
