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.

A cute cottage close to downtown, easy to get to any destination. Nancy is great with answering questions and give excellent local recommendations. We would stay there again.
Friendly, nice and convenient
We were there on summer and could do great use of the outdoor space. Everything was as advertised. The neighbors were very friendly and welcoming and thanks to them we got to try real wild salmon.
Note that the washer and drier are in the basement room with the second bedroom. Everything was clean and in good shape.
The house is downtown, conveniently located.
The Perfect City Cottage
Weeping Birch Cottage provided everything we could’ve hoped for during our short stay in Anchorage. We were welcomed by beautiful outdoor lights on a twig fence, and when we opened the door we found a colorful, cheerful, clean setting that blended modern with classic. Features that we noticed were beautiful hardwood floors, tile accents in the bathroom, plush towels, and the kitchen “curtain” is a large outdoor potted petunia! The kitchen is first class, including the appliances....we easily cooked dinner there our second night. The washer/dryer saved our hiking socks from certain demise! Doorstops are lovely Alaskan rocks!
Nancy excels in communication and in hospitality...even left earplugs in case the city sounds interrupt your sleep! We wish we could’ve taken Weeping Birch with us as we continued our Alaskan vacation!

Perfect home for Anchorage stay
Four of us, two parents and two teenagers, stayed here for two nights at beginning of our grand Alaska adventure. Fifteen mins from airport, which was great. Prime condition and super stocked kitchen. Dark bedrooms. Top notch laundry and WiFi. Loved the yard and it’s table (and raspberries!). Coffee out there was beautiful.bNancy so quick to communicate prior to arrival (no need during our stay to be in touch). No “check out list” so you actually feebly like you’re on vacation. Short walk to great coffee and breakfast places (White Spot!). Parking right at back yard gate (which serves as front door). Foot traffic through the lot so kept car locked, as we would in any town. So economical, spacious and local vs. a hotel room. Loved this home.
This trip was our second visit and it was just as great as last year's. Property is centrally located. Property owner takes great care of the property and makes sure all your needs are met; even sharing some of her own fresh caught Salmon filets! We enjoyed it immensely. My wife and I would like to return next year.
Cute cottage with charming yard very close to downtown. It's in a bit of a rough neighbourhood so we didn't walk there after dark. We had a wonderful stay and Nancy was a helpful host.
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.
