Space 65 m²
Property type cabin


About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Fully-Fenced Yard Located In A Downtown Neighborhood

Located in downtown Anchorage, the Mayor’s cabin was built in 1946 by architect Maynard Taylor, who lived in it with his wife and three kids while he was Mayor of Anchorage in the 1950s. The cabin is constructed of solid logs and still has its original metal roof but has been fully renovated and updated, with new wiring and plumbing up to modern code!

The cabin has two bedrooms, a living room, one bathroom, and a recently renovated kitchen. Please note the bathroom is only accessible through the master bedroom. Newly redecorated, the cabin is a fun mix of modern and traditional Alaskan styles. Enjoy the fully-fenced in yard and deck space -- perfect for summer BBQs, or building snowmen in the winter. The Mayor’s Cabin gives you a unique and authentic way to experience Anchorage and Alaska. It is a perfect place to stay while in Anchorage for pleasure or on business. It offers much more room and comfort than a sterile hotel room or modern apartment. The Mayor’s Cabin is a fun resting stop on your way out of town or your own personal retreat.

The cabin has bed space for up to four guests. The main bedroom features a queen size bed and there are two additional very Alaskan (see pictures!) twin beds in the separate second bedroom. The kitchen is very well equipped and the living room is both very comfortable and good for working. There is both Apple TV (with Netflix) and fast WIFI. The cabin is cozy!

The entire cabin and the fully fenced yard is yours. Both the front and back doors have secure keyless entry locks with the code provided prior to arrival.

We may be able to accommodate access to laundry. Please message for more information.

Street parking is readily available. Anchorage is not a walking town, or really a biking town (although there is a great trail system), so having a car is highly recommended.

We are fully compliant with all municipal regulations. We are registered as a business in Anchorage and we pay the 12% occupancy tax required by the Municipality of Anchorage. This tax is included in the rental fee. We are fully insured as a rental property.

Please contact me for any booking questions. Come discover Alaska!

The cabin is less than 15 minutes from the Ted Stevens International Airport and approximately one mile from the train depot in Ship Creek.

--Less than a five minute drive or a fifteen minute walk from Westchester Lagoon and the coastal trail.

--A 20 minute drive southeast to the Flat Top parking lot and the Chugach Mountain trailheads or 20 minutes southwest to mountain biking and cross country skiing in Kincaid Park.

Saving the best for last: there’s a reindeer in the neighborhood! Star the reindeer is just two blocks north on the corner of 10th and I.
