Parkside Guest House

Planning Your Stay

Anchorage is a city surrounded by Cook Inlet to the west and the snow-capped Chugach Mountains to the east. This small-scale metropolis is the heartbeat of the state. A city of just 300,000 residents, it is home to museums, shopping, a coastal walking and biking trail, and much wildlife.  We invite you to our Anchorage home during your time exploring this vibrant city and look forward to sharing with you the sights, culture, dining, and activities around town. 

Getting to Anchorage

Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is the main airport hub of Alaska. Located just a short cab ride from our Guest House, this airport is a great option to arrive/depart from Alaska, as well as for travel to and from more remote parts of the state.

The Alaska Railroad trains depart daily from Anchorage, heading south towards Seward and the Kenai Peninsula as well as north to Talkeetna, Denali and Fairbanks. These scenic rides are a highlight during an Alaskan adventure and are a great way to travel between your destinations.

The Park Connection offers daily coach service from Anchorage to Denali National Park & Preserve. This is a recommended option if you will be joining us at Camp Denali & North Face Lodge, as their buses arrive in time to connect with our transportation into the Park on the first day of your stay.

Exploring the City on Foot

There are some fantastic day trip options within the city. Spend the day touring museums, shopping for souvenirs and gifts at the weekend market, or walking along the coastal trail. Anchorage has all of this and more within walking distance of Parkside Guest House. Read more for a full list of our recommended activities.

Anchorage is also a great “home base” for exploring the surrounding towns and sites. Fly out of Anchorage for a day of bear viewing, take the train down to Seward for a Kenai Fjords boat trip, or visit a Musk Ox farm in Palmer. Read more for a full list of our recommended activities.
