Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Palmer - Campbell House

Restored 1935 Matanuska Colony House

The Campbell House, an original 1935 Matanuska Colony farm house, is conveniently located in the heartland of Palmer, just 45 minutes from Anchorage and near the Alaska State Fairgrounds - home of the world famous giant vegetables!

Outstanding mountain views, small town friendliness, surrounded by beautiful farmlands - this is what Palmer is all about!

A stay at the Campbell House is a step back in time with all the comforts of today! Beautifully restored hardwood floors, staircase, columns, historical style windows and many antiques combined with contemporary comforts add up to an unforgettable stay! Relax the day away in the beautiful Master Bedroom upstairs with a luxurious king size bed and awesome mountain views!

Across the hall another delightful bedroom with beautiful hardwood floors and a pair of inviting comfortable twin beds.

A beautiful fully equipped, bright and shiny, new kitchen is ready for you! Whether you love to cook or just use the microwave and fridge ~ it's all there :)

Morning coffee in the dining room ~ sunshine and mountains are on the menu!

The living area is as comfy as can be with two leather loveseats and leather chair and ottoman, and upholstered occasional chair - lots of options for watching that 40 inch TV after a long day of exploring the magnificent state of Alaska!

The Campbell House in 1935, was without indoor plumbing, but never fear ~ No outhouse!! We had you in mind when we designed this bathroom! A large custom tile walk in shower, a beautiful antique vanity with contemporary glass vessel sink, modern privy and stacking washer and dryer will meet all your needs :)

A cozy bedroom with a twin sleigh bed on the main floor is a great option as a quiet space for exploring our many great Alaskan books you will find around the Campbell House!

So many options for getting out and about when you stay at the Campbell House! You can experience Hatchers Pass, the Reindeer Farm, the Musk Ox Farm, Matanuska Glacier, hike the Butte or Lazy Mountain for starters ~ and still have time to put your feet up at the end of the day and watch the sunset above Pioneer Peak at the Campbell House!

Alaska has beauty twelve months of the year ~ it's always a perfect time to visit!

Palmer and the Campbell House - two of the Must See's while in Alaska!!!

About Q54 Management

We love living in the unique small town of Palmer Alaska! We have called Palmer home since moving to Alaska in the 1980's. Our first Palmer home was near the Matanuska Glacier. Now we currently reside closer to the townsite of Palmer.

Q54 Management purchased this house in 2011

Why Q54 Management chose Palmer

Our love of Palmer and its history led us to purchase an abandoned colony house. This little gem needed some tender loving care to restore her to her former glory and to continue telling her story. The Campbell House is located on the Springer system of roads ~ a most sought after location! Its a beautiful piece of property surrounded by farms that grow world famous Alaskan produce! It has glorious views of Pioneer Peak - our beloved Palmer mountain! It was a little house that needed alot of love! Just the right house for us - love Palmer, love its history, love the location - win, win, win! :)

What makes this house unique

The Campbell House has been accepted to the National Historic Register! So exciting to have restored and preserved ~ and to share the history of the 1935 Palmer Colony project!

Lovely vacation home!!

  • 5 out of 5
We were so happy that we choose to stay in the Campbell House while in Palmer! The location was ideal, about an hours drive from the Anchorage airport and just a few minutes drive to the center of town, and the setting absolutely stunning - what views from the front door and the kids really enjoyed the swing in the front yard! The house itself was in excellent condition upon our arrival and included everything we could have needed during our stay. A fully stocked, eat in kitchen, a cozy living room with flat screen tv, cable and DVD player, large full bath on the first floor with washer dryer and 3 adorable (and comfortable) bedrooms. We hope to make it back to Palmer soon and if we do we will definitely be staying here! I would highly recommend this property!

Campbell house is amazing.

  • 5 out of 5
I would highly recommend this property. We could have spent all summer here. It was clean, comfortable and inviting. Very nicely updated, nicely decorated and a wonderful view of the mountain. We loved the Noisy Goose Cafe, Hatcher's Pass and the Butte. We attended the Friday Palmer Market and it is ideal if you plan on going to the State Fair.
Sheri was very accommodating, helpful and informative.

Family Visit

  • 5 out of 5
The home was amazing with a gorgeous view of the mountains. I only wish my grandmother was still alive to see her home restored to it's current beauty. My favorite part of the home was the kitchen/dining area (sunny morning). Our stay was everything that we had hoped it would be. Thank you! Rita, June and Carmen

Owner's Response: Can't you just picture Onabel enjoying the sunshine too? I think of her as she must have sat on the front porch watching the boys play :)
So happy and honored to have Campbell family as guests, and heard you had a surprise reunion with a Campbell son while there?!!
Wow, such an amazing and fun coincidence!
Come stay again soon! :)

So Charming

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I went to visit our son in Anchorage, and we stayed in this Charming, clean, easy access to the freeway agricultural town. We had breakfast at the Noisy Goose(very good and great warm service) The listing falls short of how charming, practical, clean, quiet this 3 bedroom home was. We were very pleased with it. I would recommend this place to others visiting Alaska. We were there a week and managed to hike, visit Denali by Air Taxi, walked everywhere, and come back and relax in our clean
charming quiet little house. Our nice stayed with us two nights --from Seattle-- she loved it. And our son
and his girlfriend also stayed a couple of nights and we cooked, relax, and dined in such peace and quiet. They loved the place as well. Thank you Sheri, and when we are back, we will most certainly look your place up again.

Home away from Home

  • 5 out of 5
Campbell House is a beautifully renovated, cozy cabin, perfect for travelers looking for all the comforts of home while traveling. The kitchen is fully stocked with all utensils needed to make a home cooked meal, the living room is ideal for family game nights or gathering around for movie night, the beds are comfortable and the room sizes are ample enough for each family member to have space to relax. The setting could not be more ideal with the picturesque mountain view out every window and close enough to Palmer to feel not completely isolate. A very wonderful and memorable stay is in store for all visitors to Campbell House

The Campbell House is a restored Colony House from 1935, located in the heartland of Palmer, in the shadows of magnificent Pioneer Peak and surrounding farmlands.

Palmer is a historic town which grew rapidly when the New Deal Act of 1935 was put into action by President Roosevelt. Colonists from Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin were selected to move to Alaska to develop the land thru farming and related industry.

The Colonists lived in a Tent City until the lottery drawing took place that determined their homesites.

George and Onabel Campbell from Mio, Michigan drew Quarter 54 in the lottery drawing and were assigned the property that the Campbell House is on. Also still standing is the original chicken brooder.

Palmer town square has many historic buildings and monuments teaching about this time in our history.
