Pearsons Pond Luxury Inn sounds wonderful, but I want everyone to know that they also host self-catered condominiums - I think they have two. The condo we stayed at was on Douglas Island, which is just across the channel from Juneau and a matter of just a couple easy, quick miles. The cruise ships coming and going are fun to watch, as the condo deck faces the docks. Our condo was a one bedroom, full kitchen, laundry in the condo, small deck, covered parking space, with bicycles. The futon couch in the living room could be used as a bed too....one word of caution here. Our son who lives in Juneau spent one night with us at the condo, and this futon bed is not suitable for an adult. It has a brace in the center and isn't long enough for someone over about 5'9". We substituted a queen air mattress. The condo comes with extra linens, both towels and queen sheets for the bed in the bedroom, and all of these are luxury cotton, along with the two robes. The complex is quiet, and the neighbors very friendly. Our condo had all dishes and utensils so that we could cook and eat in when we wished. It made us feel very relaxed and at -home and allowed us to really spend some family quality time that would not have been possible in a hotel room. Though the condo isn't big, the bedroom has a walkin closet that connects through to the bathroom. The bath also is accessible through the living area which makes it easy to use during the day or for guests. Rachael at Pearson's Pond also offered to help with setting up other plans, which was nice, although we already had a "planner" in our son. Oh yes - we rented a car through Rent a Wreck for $45/day, and they came and picked us up at the airport and took us back at the end of the trip. I recommend spending the little extra over the cost of a hotel room if you want a little more freedom when in Juneau - especially if you like being able to cook/eat/snack/do laundry without having to go out. there are several options for groceries and sundries nearby; also a liquor store, gas station, etc. Douglas itself is quieter than Juneau and avoids the cruise ship crowds. Douglas has a couple of good eateries - Island Pub (Pizza, sandwiches, drinks) and the Douglas Cafe for breakfast/lunch. The condo came with very nice (Thymes) personal amenities, laundry starters, and coffee makings. The condo is NOT serviced during your stay, but cleaners and extra linens are stocked. There is a flat screen tv/DVD in the living room, hair dryer and iron/board. Great internet through a supplied cable. Thanks to Pearsons Pond for a great stay!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our extended stay condo. The inn gets so much attention that the condo is often overlooked, even though it is also a lovely place to stay. I want you to know that we value your feedback greatly and, for this reason, have replaced the futon-style sofa with a full sofa sleeper designed to accommodate a more diverse people & sizes. Also, thank you for commenting on our neighbors. They are indeed a terrific group of folks and it is no wonder that you fit right in! We all look forward to your next visit to Juneau!
