About Nancy nolin
I came to Alaska in 1978 to work at a sports fishing lodge in Katmai National Park. I fell in Love with this wonderful state and moved here the very next year. I married an Alaskan man and had three beautiful children. These days I divide my time between Sarasota, Florida and Anchorage.
Nancy nolin purchased this House in 2013
Why Nancy nolin chose Downtown
Anchorage is a beautiful city with a backdrop of breathtaking Chugach mountain range and views of Cook Inlet and Turnagain Arm. The downtown area is my absolute favorite part of Anchorage. When this cottage, nestled in the trees, came up for sale I knew I had to have it! Built in 1941 and updated in 2011 it is the perfect place to relax after exploring all that Anchorage and other parts of Alaska have to offer. This is my first year renting the cottage and I am excited to share this wonderful place with visitors.
What makes this House unique
Weeping Birch Cottage is quaint and comfortable. It is located very close to everything. You may enjoy walking down to ship creek to fish for King Salmon or perhaps just watch as someone lands one of the magnificent fish. The Saturday market ( which actually takes place all weekend...not just on Saturday's) is a great place to buy giant Alaskan produce, shop for Alaskan made crafts or enjoy local foods. You will want to explore the unique downtown stores as they are an easy walk or short drive away.

Absolutely the perfect place for me and my family to stay in Downtown Anchorage. It felt like home. Nancy went well out of her way to accommodate our every need. I would stay there again for sure! RENT NANCY'S PLACE!!
Great Anchorage Hideaway
Cute little older house close to downtown, and major arteries in and out of Anchorage. Clean, private, and well equipped kitchen. Perfect for an Anchorage hang, and will use it again on furthur visits to this beautiful state.
Nancy was so kind and welcoming! She really went above and beyond with little details to make it seem like your home away from home. Dealing with her was a pleasure, much appreciated and we will go there again upon our return. Thank you, Nancy! Laura B.
Great location, very clean and comfortable.
We had a great experience working with Nancy. She was very prompt with responses. The cottage is close to town, Farmer's market and the Alaskan train station. The property was very clean and comfortable. I felt like a resident not just a guest on vacation in a hotel. We plan to return next year. What a time we had!
Cozy cute cottage in great location
We loved the cottage! It was small but perfect for us (2 + 1 child). It was very clean (very important for me!!) and I appreciated the attention to detail. It had everything you needed! We even got some surprise ice cream in the freezer from the host! We did not use the second bedroom located downstairs but this was additional space. The washer and dryer are practically new. The location is great, close to everything. The host was wonderful to communicate with, super responsive and worked with us and around our schedule. She even found us a pack and play for our son so that we do not have to rent one. Thank you and highly recommend. We would stay there again.
Great Cottage - Downtown Anchorage
My husband and I stayed for six nights. The cottage was comfortable, well stocked and we had room to spread out. All for roughly the same price as area hotels during tourist season. The location was great and we were able to walk downtown and nearby Tony Knowles coastal trail where we walked and took bike rides. The neighbors on either side of the cottage were friendly and welcoming. We ate out some of the time, but it was very nice to have a well equipped kitchen for breakfasts and the couple of dinners we made when we didn't feel like eating out. I found the bed (queen) to be very comfortable and I slept well. However, if you are a light sleeper you may want to bring earplugs since the cottage is located in a city with typical city noises. We were not bothered by any of it, however.
Overall it was a nice place to stay while in Anchorage and Nancy could not be easier to work with!
There is a visitors center located on the corner of 4th Avenue and F street, a short walk from weeping birch cottage. The visitors center has pamphlets as well as knowledgable individuals that can help you find fun things to do in Alaska. Perhaps a Fishing excursion, a trip to Denali national park, a train ride to Talkeetna or Seward or perhaps the location of the best pizza in town.
