The photo of Cedar Alley from the street sold me...but I couldn't believe how spacious this cozy home actually WAS ! I didn't even know it had TWO bedrooms ! Fully stocked kitchen, a washer and dryer available, and a pretty little private deck with umbrella-covered seating for the one afternoon it actually sprinkled ! Pam and Lee were so gracious as hosts - and even made us aware of the loaded raspberry vines out the back door for our snacking ! The central location in Anchorage allowed us to walk downtown to the museums, most all the restaurants, and just generally enjoy our first trip to this beautiful town and Alaska. My photos really don't do it justice !!
This rental home the most fully-furnished place we have ever stayed. The owners provided delicious muffins, eggs, milk, great coffee, fruit, cereals, energy bars and more. The jetted tub was excellent after a hard hike up to Flattop Mountain or biking the Tony Knowles Trail. We didn't watch TV, so I can't comment on it, but the wifi was fast. It is walking distance to an excellent bakery and grocery store and a quick drive to downtown. It's perfect for a couple like us or a couple with 2 children, but I think it would crowd four adults. The rooms are small and the single bathroom is not connected to a bedroom but is off the kitchen. The gardens are lovely.
Four adults thoroughly enjoyed our well stocked and nicely appointed cottage. The patio, draped in endless sunlight, was our spot for evening meals and conversation. Morning coffee and breakfast landed us on the patio outside the kitchen. Pam was a fabulous host; she genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. It was beyond thoughtful to have bread, milk, cereal, snacks, spices, zip lock bags, laundry etc. etc. We’ve vacation rentaled many times, nothing comes close to Cedar Alley. I’ve let friends know about Cedar Alley and Pam. If we return, we’ll rent Cedar Alley again. Thanks, Pam; you have this business dialed in.
This is the best vacation rental I have ever had. Amazing place. Incredible host next door that are so friendly and helpful. House stocked better than mine. Will stay here any and every time I go to anchorage.
We stayed at Cedar Alley Cottage July 6 -15, 2016 and the expectations were over the top! Unbelievable!!!!! The cottage was so comfortable, cozy and inviting! The Host, Pam and Lee Jenkins were fantastic people and they thought of everything that you might need at no extra charge. Hotel chains charge for everything, Pam and Lee provided everything from the heart! There were snacks for outings, breakfast cereal, coffee, cupcakes from local bakery and so much more that I can not add to this! So over the top accommodations from the heart of Godly people! A must for the best and a WILL return for us!!!
