About Ryan and Robin

There are few things I enjoy more than floating down the Upper Kenai. I was lucky enough to spend the month of September fishing in Cooper Landing for about a decade before owning this property. For any guests that have not experienced the fall in Cooper Landing, I strongly recommend it.

Ryan and Robin purchased this house in 2011

Why Ryan and Robin chose Cooper Landing

There are many houses available for rent in Cooper Landing, but few have the river front privacy and fishing as the Bear Den. Sitting by a warm fire down by the river after a great day of exploring Alaska is one of our favorite features of the property.

If the world class rainbow fishing was not enough, the upper river is one of the most beautiful places I have come across. The house is extremely quiet and sits across from the drift only marker on the Upper Kenai (No motors allowed). Just above the property, the river begins to narrow and pick up current.

What makes this house unique

Brown bears frequent the property in May and early June and leave their mark on an annual basis. By late June the bears move a few miles down river to look for spawning salmon. Rainbows and Dollies can be caught easily for most of the summer and fall. In October Silver Salmon start to move into the slack water before spawning in Kenai Lake.

My father and I stayed while fishing the Kenai. Great location! You can fish from the property if you like. Property is very clean and kept up. There was no cable connected to the TV but didn't bother us. They did have movies to play at night if you like. There also was a gas grill that came in very handy to cook your fresh fish from that day. I would recommend staying at this location.

Owner Ryan and Manager Jessica very accommodating and easy to work with. Clean, comfortable and met our needs and expectations. The small downfall was the fact that the river was closed for fishing. The next time we will definitely plan it so we can fish right there. Ryan provided us with a new BBQ grill and we had a nice cookout on the deck. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again a day recommend this place to our friends who would want to stay in the area.
