About Collette Hand
Our family chose this property and knew we'd have a great view as we began clearing the trees with chains and trucks. Looking at that gorgeous mountain, Pioneer Peak everyday is captivating. I've climbed it 3 times now! My husband developed this neighborhood of 160 acres and we live on 15 of it. It is peaceful and beautiful. We are not far from town, but feel remote with a property covered in trees and through which moose meander on a regular basis. Joe and I enjoy motorcycling, hiking
Collette Hand purchased this Cabin in 2001

What makes this Cabin unique
Gorgeous mountain view. Located on the edge of our pasture where the Shetland Sheep we raise will come to the fence to say hello. We are very near the Reindeer Farm, Musk Ox Farm, Matanuska Glacier, Alaska State Fair grounds and Hatcher's Pass Independence Gold Mine. 2.5 miles from great restaurant choices in Palmer.

Thank you so much for staying with us! I love our cabin too! If we ever sell our house, we dream of moving into the luxury log cabin. So glad to get to share it with others! Very glad you had a wonderful stay. That means a LOT to me! God bless, Collette
Wonderful stay in the Cabin!
My husband, son & I recently stayed 2 nights in the Cabin. The space was more than we needed, but the pictures & description caught my attention & I couldn't pass up the chance to stay here. Collette was great to deal with ahead of time, left a nice note to greet us & plenty of information regarding the Cabin & surrounding areas inside. The Cabin was exactly like the pictures, very warmly decorated & lovely in every way. We shopped for supplies in Palmer & made a few meals in the well equipped kitchen. With only 2 days and lots that we planned to do in the surrounding area, we didn't get to explore the property except for the area behind the Cabin, but did get to say Hi to the sheep & check out the beautiful handmade items for sale in the Dirt Sheep. The damage deposit was promptly credited to us by Collette after our stay. I would recommend a stay at the Cabin to anyone looking for a beautiful relaxing place to stay while in the Palmer area.
Thank you, Thank you! This does my heart such good. I try hard to make sure that all my pictures and descriptions in the listing make every detail clear so no one could be disappointed or surprised in any way, SO THANK YOU SO MUCH! This encourages me again as I desire for EVERY guest I have to think of their stay in our cabin as a wonderful part of their time in our amazing, majestic state. Bless you!
Would have given it a 10 if I could
We are 4 friends on a 12 day fishing trip throughout Alaska. We spent 2 nights at this property. Arrived late...very late. No Problem! The cabin was immaculate. The attention to detail was amazing in this cozy little cabin. Absolutely no problem sleeping four adult men in separate beds. All beds were very spacious and comfortable. The living room area was very comfortable with nice seating and ROKU TV. The views out the front of the cabin were outstanding. It was located in a very nice neighborhood, yet gave us a feeling of isolation. It was well positioned for the things we wanted to do... Hatchers Pass, Matanuska Glacier, fishing on the Susitna River and only a 3 hour drive to Denali. The cabin was as advertised except for one small detail. The outdoor grille was actually at the main house which was about 75-100 yards away. We would have preferred to have a grille at the cabin and not have had to worry about disturbing the owners. The owners may want to consider putting a small outdoor grille at the actual cabin. All of us in our party would have given it a 10 if we could have. I would definitely rent this property again.
Thank you Dave! AND... because I totally agree with you on the grill thing, have already got one ordered and additionally a small firepit for the yard over there. We have a large firepit here at the house for guests, but the cabin is only 2 years old (moved it in 2 years ago, tho it was built long ago) and I'm VERY receptive to helpful input on any way possible to make it all perfect. So, again THANK YOU for being terrific guests and thank you for the input! Consider it DONE! :) So, if you are ever up this way again, please be our guests! God bless! Collette
