About the neighborhood
Juneau is the Capital City of Alaska with a small downtown area. We are in a semi rural area, on Douglas Island in a small, quiet subdivision with very little traffic. There are many trails to walk within 5 miles, Eaglecrest Ski Area is one mile away and offers great hiking. There is a boat launch with in 1.5 miles and kayak rentals are available from local businesses. Kayaks can be launched from the boat ramp or from the beach at high tide.
Getting around
The airport is on the mainland and rental cars are available. The drive to our location is 15.7 miles or about 25 minutes away. Most of the restaurants are downtown, which is 8 miles from our location. If you are arriving by ferry on the Alaska Marine Highway, the terminal is 20.5 miles away. The City bus has a very good schedule for getting around the city and neighborhoods. But the bus comes to our area about 7:20 a.m. and 5:20 p.m. and connects to all other routes.

If you have any questions about arrivals or departures, please contact us.

How to get there
Airport: Juneau International Airport: 15.5 mi
Ferry: Auke Bay Ferry Terminal : 20.5 mi
By renal car from the Juneau International Airport, take Egan Drive toward downtown. There is only one highway so you won't get lost. As you get near the downtown area there is a bridge that spans the Gastineau Channel to Douglas Island. Turn Right at the Bridge intersection, turn Right again onto North Douglas Highway. About 7 miles there will be signs for Eaglecrest Ski area, keep going. About 150 feet past the 8 mile marker you will see a street sign that says Sundown Drive, turn Right. Follow Sundown Drive to the Stop sign on Horizon Drive and turn left. Stay on Horizon for approx. 2 blocks. On the waterside you will see a gray two car garage on the street and a two story house below on the beach. You have arrived.
