We are going to be traveling to Nepal next month and need someone to enjoy our cozy house and watch after our 3 chickens. We are located close to the university and 5-10 minutes from downtown Anchorage. We also can boast a neighborhood bakery that also serves as a local gathering spot. We will be gone during a fun time of year when the Iditarod Sled Dog Race (March) and Fur Rendezvous Winter Carnival (late Feb).
The chickens are pretty easy to care for and fun to watch. As it warms up, they may even provide eggs! We have wifi, basic cable and your own bathroom.
If you are into winter sports, you can ski on the local trails and winter bike as well. it is an easy place to live.
