Why Jane & David chose Soldotna

Jane owned a Kenai river view cabin in Funny River since 1996. David and Jane upgraded to this beautiful home ON the Kenai River in Winter 2009.

What makes this house unique

Moose in the yard, eagles overhead, ducks and gulls swooping in on small fish. The fishing for king salmon, red salmon, silver salmon, and rainbow trout is FANTASTIC! The house is at the end of a road with only a half dozen houses - very quiet. You can hear the river flow from the sunny deck.

Outstanding property!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group for our family and the cabin accommodated us flawlessly. Very spacious and clean and close to town as well as great fishing! We made a lot of wonderful family memories for the week. Perfectly stocked with all the full accommodations a house needs to enjoy our stay. We are already anxious to make next years reservation again! Thank you!!

This house is an excellent place to stay for groups. The home is very clean, well decorated and has everything you need - including a great platform to fish the Kenai!

The owners are very helpful and nice... We would definitely stay here again!!

Wonderful Escape to the Kenai Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four days on the ground floor of this beautiful house in August of 2014. It was a B & B arrangement as the owner, David, was living upstairs on the third floor. Plenty of comfort and privacy. Great to have David on site as he was helpful with advice about exploring the area and fishing. The large fishing platform below the house was fantastic. Make sure to bring a few days worth of groceries and other items unless you want to drive the 17 to 20 miles into Soldotna each day- although there is a small (limited) general store, just four miles down the road. Relax on the deck, catch the afternoon sun, and grill the catch of the day. Then sit around the fire pit at night and watch the stars while listening to the river roll on by. Paradise in Alaska!

This was such a great little vacation. My parents came in from Montana and we stayed here for three nights. it was a little late in the fishing season but we were able to catch three silvers (coho) from the dock right at the house. 25, 26 and 27 inches long. It was also an easy commute to Homer, AK for a nice half day halibut trip. From a guy who lives here in Alaska year around this place made me wish I had a place on the Kenai river. Absolutely beautiful. I would do it again in a heart beat.

Thank you so much, the house was very clean and ready for visitors...

Stunning house

The pictures don't give the place enough credit, absolutely beautiful. Every thing we needed was provided, only regret is we couldn't stay any longer. Kinda out of the way but totally worth it.

I was extremely satisfied with our stay it was way better than the pictures we had a relaxing weekend get away in a beautiful home you can sit on the deck and listen to the water and birds the best part of all was there wasn't a lot of bugs around which was very surprising seeing it is right by the river anything you will need is in the house for you to use Outstanding and I want to come back again you can fish right outside in the back yard !!!
