Overview

About the property

Privacy of a hotel, independence of an apartment, comfort of a B&B.

Comfort, privacy, seclusion, and personal touches throughout make this a welcoming place to rest your head. It will feel like your home away from home with everything you need to charge forward in business or recharge on vacation.

The 900-square-foot unit is dedicated to guests so there are no worries about the owner's personal belongings or pets crowding your space. The guest apartment is completely walled off from the owner's unit so you can relax and be yourself. You will also have a dedicated parking area.

The cozy and tidy non-smoking accommodations offer gorgeous filtered views of Gastineau Channel and the surrounding mountain range, high-speed Internet access, a fully-equipped kitchen, and free laundry machines. Guests of this new bed and breakfast will enjoy complimentary self-serve breakfast and snack items. With prior arrangements I may be able to provide temporary freezer space for your fish or game.

Each bedroom offers a comfortable bed and bedding fully encased for prevention of spills, dust mites, and other nasties. Enjoy luxury, high-thread-count, sateen linens; an assortment of encased pillows of varying density and design; ultra-soft extra blankets; and an encased down comforter in duvet cover. (If down is not to your liking, please let me know in advance and I may be able to switch it out for a synthetic fiber fill comforter.) You will also have plush robes available for your use during your stay. Each bedroom also has a remote-controlled electronic fireplace; television with Roku access to movies, network programming, and news, including voice-activated, headphone-capable remote for silent viewing; desk with lighted vanity mirror, work light, and surge-protected power strip; closet and drawers; luggage rack; shoe rack; and more.

By popular demand I have now added a queen sofa sleeper for two in the living room. The option of two extra guests staying in the living room is best suited for adventurous, chummy, budget-minded friends that are willing to share slightly closer quarters to stick together and smaller groups that don't want to share bedrooms. Blankets and pillows will be provided but using a sleeping bag on the mats is recommended for improved comfort. Of course the living room provides less privacy and fewer creature comforts than the private bedrooms and the more guests occupying the unit simultaneously the less roomy it will feel. Also note that although the hot water tank has a generous supply it is possible that groups taking long showers or baths could temporarily exhaust the hot water supply. Please conserve and coordinate accordingly. Please discuss with me in advance of booking if you are traveling with children.

The bathroom also has an electronic fireplace with remote to make sure you are toasty warm after using the combination shower tub. There are two sinks at the double vanity; free laundry machines; and a commode with a night-time lighted bowl to guide you when nature calls you from your deep slumber.

The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator with freezer where you will find chilled, filtered water and a small variety of goodies. There is a toaster, coffee maker, automatic hot water boiler, microwave, and even an oven/range for those that enjoy the adventure of preparing their own meals on site. Afterward the dual sink and dishwasher make clean up of the provided dishes, pots, pans, and utensils a snap.

This is a self-contained, fully-equipped, two-bedroom unit. When you reserve the entire unit you have access to everything therein including two bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and living room.

Self-serve check-in is available with keycode access to the front door and your private bedroom(s). Self-serve check-out is also available through the same means. The keycode deadbolt lock on the front door locks automatically seconds after the door is fully closed and each bedroom has both a keycode handset lock and a security hasp. The keycode locks can be opened by either a key or a code depending on your preference.

As the owner, I live onsite in a completely separate unit. This unit is dedicated to my guests so you will not have to deal with any personal belongings or pets in your space. I am quiet and generally keep to myself but strive to strike a happy balance between independence and friendliness. I will be available by text, email, or phone to assist or check on things as needed. When the entire unit is rented to a single tenant I tend to be present only as needed or to remove trash, depending on the length of stay booked.

Please note: We live on the edge of a National Forest where wildlife are prominent and active. Windows and doors must be kept closed and locked when unattended and when guests are sleeping. Please be aware of the potential presence of wildlife and take care not to disturb or harm them. Deer, bears, and birds are common! It is unlawful to feed them and attracts them, causing dangerous problems for both people and animals. Ensure that you are bear aware and do not leave food or trash unattended. Even leaving food in your vehicle can attract bears and they can be so determined as to break in and cause severe damage.

Weather changes occur frequently and quickly in Alaska. We are a maritime rain forest but we do get snow and ice throughout the winter. When it is snowing, please let me know when you may need to come and go and I will ensure that the walk and drive are clear. You may be asked to move your vehicle temporarily to allow snow plow/blower access.

The outdoor areas beyond the immediate parking and covered entrance area are strictly off limits. While there are animals present on the property, they are contained in private areas and will not interact with you or enter your unit. For your safety you must not wander around the property or enter any private doorways, gates, or buildings.

Enjoy Juneau's stunning natural surroundings while staying at this private property near the heart of Alaska's capital city. Norway Point is a serene neighborhood conveniently located just north of the main Downtown portion of Juneau. There are a number of older homes located along the Slough and the hillside. We are tucked in amongst the old-growth forest near the base of Mount Juneau. Breathtaking, expansive views year 'round greet you and welcome you to explore the beauty of Alaska. Just a short drive away the Mendenhall Glacier; Auke Bay recreational area; Perseverance Trail; Treadwell Mine Trails; the Shrine of St. Therese; multiple City, State and Federal parks and forests; and other sites can each be explored. The Inn's guests can hit the slopes at Eaglecrest ski area, walk along the nearby scenic trails and beaches, golf at the Mendenhall Golf Course, or fish departing from one of the many harbors from Douglas to Auke Bay.

The property is just a stone's throw from the Capitol, entertainment, and all the trappings of Downtown and just a few miles from shopping centers in the Lemon Creek and Mendenhall Valley areas. Performing arts and sporting events are commonly held at the nearby Juneau-Douglas High School or Thunder Mountain High in the Valley and the new Statewide Library, Archives, and Museum highlights both cultural artifacts and galleries of fine art. Juneau is a rich environment and you're sure to find many things to delight your senses and sensibilities.

Fly or boat in to Juneau and travel around the city by rental car, taxicab, or city bus. The Capital City Transit (bus) system has regular stops on Glacier Highway with nearly hourly service in each direction 7 days a week.

Juneau is a very accessible city. Whether you prefer to ride, drive, or walk there is much to see and do. You can head "Out the Road", travel to Thane, or take a short jaunt over to Douglas. Biking is popular here both in urban street riding and technical mountain adventuring. Hiking and camping opportunities abound! And don't forget the water sports! Fishing, boating, kayaking, cruising, it's all based here! In our are there are ample sidewalks for walking all the way to the Mendenhall Valley and beyond. Go see the Mendenhall Glacier, ride the Mt. Roberts Tram (open seasonally), or take a helicopter tour. If you are so inclined, the Capital Transit bus system is clean, reliable, affordable, and a great way to just see the city in an afternoon.

About Heather O'Claray Fair

I am a full-time-employed professional, a classical musician, and an urban farmer. I love animals, learning, and trying new things. I generally keep to myself but strive to strike a happy balance between independence and friendliness. A clear communicator with lots of successful home-share experience, you'll find me respectful, responsible, clean, polite, and friendly and I'm looking for the same in compatible hosts and guests.

Heather O'Claray Fair purchased this bed and breakfast in 2014

Why Heather O'Claray Fair chose Downtown

Norway Point is an old Juneau neighborhood. My family began with their first home originally located across the street. In the 1960s the family home was acquired by the State to make way for the construction of Egan Drive (Alaska Highway 7). This home and the one below that shares our driveway have been around for decades and I knew the original owners. The prominent Juneau family are among those I call my friends today and I was so happy to have an opportunity to come to this neighborhood and share it with others.

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

I love living here and find great solace in having a little piece so close to both commerce and recreation. We are tucked away in a little hideaway with much more room than the typical Juneau property and I love it!

Top notch accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Heather was very responsive, easy to work with prior to our stay and a pleasure to meet. The main level of her home was where we stayed and was bigger than shown in the photos. We had the entire unit to ourselves and it was very quiet and private. Everything was immaculate and first-rate from the bedding to the fluffy towels and delicious organic snacks and coffee (see photos). She even had breakfast sandwiches in the freezer and waffles with real maple syrup! Location was great....10 minutes into town and 15-20 minutes to Mendenhall Glacier. Nice view overlooking the channel. We had a great start to our first visit to Alaska and will stay here again the next time we are in Juneau!
