Arctic Circle

This home is in the Auke Bay Elementary school district, which is the best elementary school in Juneau. Arctic Circle is in the Mendenhall Valley which has many amenities for families. Grocery shopping, the airport, restaurants, are all less then ten minutes away as well as the Dimond Park Aquatic Center Dimond Park Field House, the new Thunder Mountain High School and the brand new Valley Library are all a quick drive from this home.

Arctic Circle is its own Alaskan Lake House & Ski Lodge. This house is a five minute walk from the West Glacier Trail Head where you can hike and stand on the Mendenhall Glacier and see the ice caves or you can hike to the summit of Mt McGinnis .

The backyard of this home is the Tongass National Rainforest and the Mendenhall Campground run by the National Forest Service. The campground is open May 15 to September 15 and during the winter is kept groomed by Juneau's Nordic Ski Club so that it feels like a winter playground is in your backyard. Cross country skis are a must if you live at this house.

You should probably look on Craigslist for some used kayaks as well for the summer as you can put your kayak on your shoulder and go down to the lake for a paddle. You also will want to have firewood available for the fire pit and wood burning sauna with a cedar interior. It is nice to go for a long ski and then enjoy the sauna.


If the aurora forecast calls for high activity just put on your headlamp and coat get to the lake!

This home was built in 1985 and has five bedrooms, 1.75 bath in 1800 sq. ft. There is a small bonus room upstairs that can be used as a playroom. The downstairs living area has a  generous open floor plan.
