Denali Park Place is located in a small, forested neighborhood south of the entrance to the park. A large apartment, guests rave most about the mountain views, tranquility and cleanliness.
Guests love the beautiful woodwork, high-end appliances, fully equipped kitchen, and state of the art washer/dryer.
The artwork is part of my private collection. I have been in love with Alaska for 37 years, and have collected the artwork and books of this great state since I was 21. A brief history of the pieces in the apartment makes the artwork even more fun to enjoy during your stay.
Placed at the back of our 5 acres of land, the setting is quite peaceful – although the sound of sled dogs howling isn't unusual. Caribou, moose, snow shoe hare, and perhaps even a grizzly bear might be sighted from the array of windows.
Each window offers fabulous mountain views, and the granite breakfast bar is a perfect place to write emails (or postcards!) while enjoying the scenery. There is plenty of room to lounge in the spacious living room with two couches offering wonderful views and lots of natural light.
Upon your arrival you will find all the fixings for traditional sourdough waffles. A hands-on experience, you are provided with everything you need to make your own delicious sourdough waffles! And this heirloom sourdough comes with a fascinating history you can read about at alaskasgoldenspoon.com
Minutes away, Denali National Park offers visitors a variety of tours. The Visitors Center and the Murie Science and Learning Center are a couple of my favorite local places. The displays are great, as are the free movies and lectures. I especially like sitting in the big chairs in front of the 'wood' stove and reading. This is the kind of activity you miss if your visit is rushed - and yet will be most memorable if you take the time to do it!
Should you want to spend some time lounging at home, there is a collection of books on Alaska, a small film library with large screen television, and of course, hi-speed Internet.
