FANTASTIC VIEWS OF SNOW COVERED MOUNTAINS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Palmer - Cabin in the woods

2 Bdrm,1 Bath On The Side Of The Mountain With 180 Degree View Of The Mountains

From Palmer the drive to the cabin in the woods is 7 miles of paved roads. On your way you might want to stop at the scenic pull out just a couple of miles from Palmer and take in the Matanuska River and the Knik River valley. On a clear day you will see the Knik glacier. Don’t forget your camera.

The cabin in the woods is located on 5 rural acres with a short drive up the mountain to the cabin. The cabin is all log . One bedroom, large living room, spacious kitchen and bathroom in 576 sq ft. Tastefully furnished yet rustic. The kitchen has full size appliances and is well stocked with everything you will need except for food. The bedroom has a queen size bed. The deck out front looks out over the valley and is covered with clear panels to let in all the light. It is 10’ by 24’ and features a gas grill, table and chairs for 4 and lots of extra room for folding deck chairs. Also available for your use should the day be blustery, a propane deck heater full of fuel and ready to go. Beside the deck is a fire pit well stocked with wood.

Our location in the famous Matanuska Valley gives you a centralized yet rural location to start your exploration of the great state of Alaska starting from the spacious front covered deck. The view stretches from the Knik River valley in the east , scans all the way along the Chugach Mountain Range including 3300foot(1005 meters) high Pioneer Peak to the Cook Inlet and far off Anchorage in the South West. From the Muskox farm just 15 minutes down the road to beautiful Hatcher Pass and its Historic hard rock gold mines to the Pioneer Museum in downtown Palmer you will run out of time before you run out of things to see and do. A 1 hour drive north up the Glenn Highway(hwy 1) is some of the most spectacular scenery the road system has to offer. At the end of that hour you will be at the Matanuska Glacier for the photo op of a lifetime. A must do drive. On the way back don’t forget to stop off at Sheep Mtn. lodge for a wonderful meal. Be sure and glass the mountain peaks behind the lodge for its namesake, Dall sheep.

An hour the opposite direction is the eagle river nature center amid towering peaks on three sides. Walking trails will take you into the heart of this beautiful valley. If you haven't had enough hiking on the way back you can drive up the mountain to Thunderbird falls(a short hike) and beautiful Eklutna lake, the main source of Anchorages drinking water.

Driving north on the Parks Highway (hwy 3) is also scenic with lots of places to stop and take pictures. The turnoff to Talkeetna is 2 hrs from the cabin. If it is a clear day the trip into Talkeetna could yield a fantastic view of Mt McKinley from the pull out just before you start down the hill into town. Once back out to the main highway continue north and look for the pull out once you have crossed Hurricane Gulch. This 1050 ft (320 meters) span is a breathtaking 254 feet(77 meters) above the white water of Hurricane Creek. Another 63 miles will put you at the turnoff to Denali Park. This is a long day trip so as evening approaches, even though the sun doesn’t set until close to midnight be on the look out for moose and caribou on the way home.

About Robert Ham

Robert moved to Alaska in 1982 and settled in the Valley in 1997. Robert built this cabin himself in 1998. He lives on the property in a separate residence year round.

Robert Ham purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Robert Ham chose Palmer

When I purchased this property it was undeveloped. I had one thing in mind as I looked for my future home location. It had to have a view. So I drove to the location, got out and started hiking up the mountain. When I found a large flat spot among heavy timber I knew I was high enough to have a view but I couldn't see through the trees. I knew if I did enough clearing I would have that Alaskan view I had been dreaming of for so many years. I bought the property, built a driveway and cleared a site for my little log home.

What makes this cabin unique

I can ride my 4 wheeler or snowmobile from my home to miles of trails in the mountains behind the cabin. Moose are seen all year round so pay attention every time you walk out the door. You might get the surprise of your life standing in the driveway. The quiet is something I cherish. The cabin is high enough above the valley floor to sit on the covered deck and watch the storm cells move across the valley. It is a wonderful feeling to sit under the deck cover when it is raining, all warm and dry and watch the day go by.

This cabin is something one might imagine as a perfect log cabin in the GREAT state of Alaska. Cozy and neat with beautiful views of the mountains from the deck. Thank you Bob for the great place to stay!

Amazing Cabin!

  • 5 out of 5
We had the most amazing time at this beautiful cabin. My husband and I are
architects and his family from anchorage (all carpenters) couldn't help but
marvel at what Bob has created. This cabin makes you feel the wonder of Alaska
with its amazing views and museum quality decor yet it provides and is close to
all amenities needed. Bob was a discrete landlord but was available anytime we
needed him. He was polite and modest about sharing his lovely home. We will 100%
love to stay at his cabin again and thank him so much for providing above and
beyond what we anticipated in a rental property.

Highly recommended!

We just got back from our 2 week Alaskan vacation, where we spent a week and a half at this cabin, and loved it! It feels like it's totally isolated and set deep in the wilderness, but is only an easy 10 minute drive from the grocery store and downtown. We loved having the space to ourselves, so our toddler could run around and play without disturbing anyone.

Great Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic stay in this cabin. Bob has built a beautiful cabin that sits just above the tree line with great mountain views. The deck is fantastic. The cabin is well stocked and almost anything you'd need or want is already there. Bob was super friendly and helpful. We'd stay here again, for sure.

My husband and I found this beautiful cozy cabin in Palmer on VRBO. We have traveled all over the lower 48 and Alaska and found this to be the most comfortable home away from home. The craftsmanship of the cabin is outstanding. It's worth staying in the cabin just to see how well built it is and to see the gorgeous taxidermy mounts and the amazing view from the front porch. Bob even had makings for smores waiting for us in a basket in the kitchen! We didn't use it, but the fire-pit outside looked very inviting. I wish we would have had the time to use it. We did use the exceptionally clean gas grill to cook steaks one night. We also noticed that Bob even had bug spray on the porch heater in case we needed it. Without a doubt, we will stay here the next time we visit the great state of Alaska. No where else will you find such clean and comfortable lodging! Thank you, Bob and Esmeralda.
Fondly,
Florida Friends.

Thank you so much. I worked hard to try and provide an Alaska experience that guests would find unique and enjoyable. You have validated my hard work. I'm always working on the property to improve for my next guests.
I hope to see you again soon.
