Imagine being surrounded by an acre of woods, fronted by a large fresh-water lake stocked with salmon and flocked to by geese and float planes alike. Imagine canoeing in the early morning mist or hiking the nearby Coastal Trail along Cook Inlet. Imagine cross-country skiing in the brisk winter sunlight or ice skating under the Northern Lights. Realize it all at A Lakeside Bed & Breakfast. Your private suite is reached through an outdoor entrance. Step into a large living room complete with sitting area, dining room, reading nook and solitude. A private bedroom and bath are yours, as well as kitchenette where a self-serve hearty continental breakfast is made at your leisure. (We provide cereal, oatmeal, eggs, breads, fruit, juice, tea, milk and coffee.) Browse through the bookcase for your favorite book. Pop some popcorn, move the TV (with VCR/DVD) to your favorite corner and settle in for a private screening of a classic film from our library. Relax. As cozy as it is inside, there are lots of activities available outside all year round. Paddle one of our canoes around Sand Lake, explore canals and search for loons and moose. Or go for a bike ride on the Coastal Trail and watch for breeching whales. Sit a spell on the patio and feel the peacefulness engulf you. No matter what month it is, A Lakeside B&B is always in season. We're located on the shores of Sand Lake, eight minutes away from the Anchorage International Airport, 20 minutes from Downtown Anchorage, 45-60 minutes from Girdwood and Portage Glacier and the Chugach National Park, 60 minutes from the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. We are close to bike and world-class ski trails, a grocery store, drycleaner, 10 minutes from a large shopping mall and movies theaters, 30 seconds from Mother Nature.
