Juneau has quite a few fine hotels and
inns, and a number of wonderful bed and breakfasts. Just let us know
what you’re looking for in your accommodations, and we can connect you

Juneau is located on the shores of the
Gastineau Channel, in Southeast Alaska. Even though Juneau is on the
mainland of North America, it is only reachable by plane or ship.
Gastineau Channel is a relatively protected body of water that
communicates with the Pacific Ocean. The town of Douglas is located
just across from Juneau, and is reachable by bridge.
Juneau’s climate is heavily influenced
by its proximity to the ocean. Frequent storms come in off the ocean
all throughout the year, though summer storms tend to be less intense.
Overall, Juneau is one of the wetter locations in Alaska, but has
quite a few sunny days. Summer temperatures tend to be mostly in the
60’s, with occasional warm days in the 70’s. Winter weather is
characterized by frequent rain and snow storms. Because of the
influence of the ocean, temperatures tend to be rather moderate in the
winter compared to other locations in Alaska. Temperatures
occasionally will drop below zero, but they are more likely to be
above freezing, and rain is as likely as snow.
