Keep yourself cozy with a stay in one of these top Airbnbs in Anchorage, Alaska.
Built in 1946 by architect Maynard Taylor, who used to live in this same wooden cabin when he was the ruling mayor of Anchorage, this is a unique Airbnb lodging if you’re looking for something more special. The interior of this cabin rental in Anchorage is filled with quirks, as can be seen from the cheeky tribal-faced bed frames that house 2 single beds, as well as the wooden mosaic deer head, reminiscent of a hunter’s bounty. Lounge around on the metal netting chairs, and spend the chilly December afternoons in the heated house with a good read in hand.
