Let “The Cove” serve as your base and retreat as you explore this spectacular corner of Alaska. The Cove is nestled close to the shores of Smugglers Cove in the arms of the temperate rain forest of Southeast Alaska. Our location provides a unique blend of the feeling of remote living, but with the convenience of being close (8 miles) to the town center of Juneau. Come join us in your private home as you let your surroundings smuggle away your cares and reset your soul.
Take some time to wander out our backdoor into the magic of the Rain forest, where salmon berries and blueberries flourish. Or maybe a beach walk along the shores of Smugglers Cove is more to your linking where resident eagles keep watch. Whatever you decide, the best part is knowing “The Cove” is waiting to embrace you when you return. As your base camp, your private cottage serves to help you recuperate from your adventures, it provides you a relaxing setting to give your legs and feet a rest, comforting beds to carry you to sleep and a full kitchen and barbecue should you decide to practice your culinary skills.
So make us a part of your next visit, enjoy our views and relax in the comfort of the cove. There is much to do and see around Juneau from kayaking to hiking. So if you need help with arrangements let us know we love Alaska and love to share it with others. If you’re here to work or vacation, consider “The Cove” for your home away from home.
My husband built this original home 20 years ago. Here we raised our three children before “living small” was popular. Over the past four years we added a detached home next to it where we now reside. We reserve “The Cove” for children to come back to and for YOU to come visit for a wonderful Alaska stay.
Your (900 sq ft) private space includes the main entrance and bedroom with full size murphy bed, on lower level with rear exit leading to back yard and fire pit. Upper level includes kitchen, dining and seating area with spacious deck and barbecue, as well as, bedroom with queen bed, laundry, and shower only bathroom.
The location is 10 min from the airport. Situated in popular Auke Bay with a new Brewery, dining options, and whale watching boats, fishing and kayaking available. “Out the road” find more beaches and tourist attractions including one of my favorites, The Shrine of St. Therese. The Mendenhall Glacier is also in close proximity which is a must see. I especially like the walk to Nugget Falls water fall.
