Large flat-screen TV, cable, high speed wifi internet. Includes all linens, towels, silverware, plates, pots and pans, knife set, etc. Also includes basic toiletries, laundry detergent, iron and iron board, hair dryer, and many other everyday necessities.

Breakfast Package: Eggs, milk, juice, bread, cold and hot cereal, cookies, butter, coffee, assorted teas, sweeteners, and more. 2. Bottle of red wine (I'll happily substitute white wine or beer upon request). 3. My personally written guide to the best things to see and do in Anchorage, as well as the best places to eat, for every taste, every budget. 4. As much help as you might like planning your trip and deciding what to see in Alaska. I've lived in Alaska nearly 30 years - I know where to go and where not to go. I can also provide use of bikes and outdoor equipment. Thanks for considering The Lazy Raven, and please let me know if you have any questions. More

Very attentive host. Welcomed us with a much needed bottle of wine after a trying trip. Paul did everything he could to help us get sorted out in Anchorage.

Warm, cozy, close to everything
Our family of four stayed at The Lazy Raven for a cold week in December 2017. We loved this rental, so much so we’d almost rather keep it a secret just for ourselves! It’s warm and cozy despite the cold outside. We could walk to anything downtown, although we had a rental car to take us on longer treks out to dog sledding in Big Lake, Girdwood, etc. We had great communication with the owners...Paul checked on us frequently and was happy to offer travel suggestions and kept an eye on the aurora forecast for us. One (of many) perks is that Paul provides a breakfast grocery delivery before arrival...we found all the breakfast basics waiting in the fridge, so we didn’t have to make an early morning run for coffee or cereal our first morning. The Lazy Raven is a gem, and we hope to get back one day.

Great place to stay!
Our family (all adults) stayed at the Lazy Raven recently. We used the property as a hub to see sites and attractions around Anchorage and beyond. The property is in a great location, within walking distance to shops and restaurants. It was very clean and comfortable. The owner goes the extra mile by providing a "guide book" for things to do, see, places to eat, local laws, etc. It's very comprehensive, we used it daily. We highly recommend this property for anyone who is visiting Anchorage. We will book it again in the future!

Herausragend
Mit Abstand die schönste, sauberste und gemütlichste Unterkunft, die wir je hatten. In zentraler Lage in direkter Nähe zu Downtown. Paul ist ein wunderbarer Gastgeber, der absolut keine Wünsche offen lässt. Tausend Dank für diese hervorragende Woche in Anchorage.

Excellent stay, prime location
We absolutely loved our stay at The Lazy Raven. It's location is the best of both worlds--it is walking distance to downtown yet there is very little traffic and it's very quiet. Pretty much everything we needed was provided, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We cooked and ate family meals everyday and it felt just like home. Paul was really helpful and made the process of booking seem effortless, and check-in and check-out was a breeze. The airport is nearby (I think it was a 15 minute drive?) as are several of the main roads, so traveling to and from the house was easy. Overall it was a wonderful stay and highly recommended.

Perfect in Every Way!
I just returned home from a stay at the Lazy Raven over the Thanksgiving holiday. My two adult daughters were able to join me. Paul was an amazing host. The heat was on when we arrived. Paul had e-mailed in advance with information about Anchorage and beyond. He was available 24/7 if there were any questions or concerns. However, everything was perfect such as: breakfast items and wine were provided; nice tv & VCR; fully stocked kitchen and pantry (spices, flour, coffee, etc); great washer and dryer; and really comfy beds. The location was ideal - less than 5 minutes on foot to downtown (restaurants, museum, shopping, etc). We will definitely ask to stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return to Alaska.

PERFECT
This was the perfect lodging for myself and my two 30something sons. The location was great-easy walk to downtown: shopping, bars, eateries. The apartment was stunning and had every amenity you could imagine. Paul offered us bicycles and the use of outdoor equipment, He had stocked the fridge with a great breakfast and a nice bottle of wine. He had an abundance of tourist information, maps, and dvds. There was even a large container of toys for young kids-my boys played with Mr. Potato Head. I can't imagine a nicer place to stay while visiting Anchorage. I have already recommended it to my friends who are planning their trip.

About the neighborhood
It's a great location. We are in a residential neighborhood of single-family homes, called the South Addition, that is located in downtown Anchorage. It's a short walk to all of downtown Anchorage, dozens and dozens of restaurants and shops, the Anchorage Museum, the Performing Arts Center, The Egan Center, the Dena'ina Center (the two convention centers), the main 4th Avenue tourist district, the waterfront and Coastal Trail, and more.
Getting around
You can walk to all of downtown Anchorage, but I recommend having a rental car because there is so much to see in, around and near Anchorage, and throughout Southcentral Alaska.
