Hidden Gem!!!!

  • 5 of 5

To be honest with you, I'm hard-pressed to give up this secret place (as you would be crazy not to book this rental) but it wouldn't be fair to the owners to keep this gem a secret. We have stayed at many rental properties throughout Alaska, and this was by the far the best one yet. It exceeded our expectations with the value, and the amenities. This is a magical property located directly on the Chena River, and the pictures certainly don't do it justice!

From the time you pull in the driveway and see the craftsmanship of this property, you will know you picked the perfect place to relax and soak in the Alaskan culture. You are so close to the river you can watch the riverboats go by as you sip a drink from the hottub or you can relax in front of the chiminea while cooking some salmon on the grill. From the time we arrived, everything was perfect. The house was spotless ( I'm a clean freak and I didn't "reclean" anything) and the kitchen was equipped with all the necessities, the grills and the hottub were ready to go. Normally at rentals you are responsible for providing your own paper/detergent products but not here, everything you need is available. The bed was very comfortable as well and we slept amazing here!!!

I can't say enough words about the owner, Wally, a kind native Alaskan. He was only a phone call away. However, we didn't need to call him because his sister, Kathleen, a famous Alaskan artist, was next door to assist us with the hottub and provide us with great local info that really took our vacation to another level. (Not to mention that she brought over king salmon for us to try--after inquiring about the different types of salmon). All I can say is that I promise this property will meet and exceed your expectations in every way! Thank you Walter and Kathleen, for providing us with the experience of a lifetime!!! We are already looking forward to planning our next vacation, and we haven't even left Alaska yet!

It was the perfect location...had everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for me and my daughter to visit my son who is at Fort Wainwright. The cabin in on a very pretty location on the river(which had lots of activity) but close to all the conveniences. The owner was easy to work with and gave us a fantastic sister next door in case we needed anything!

Peaceful, Relaxing, and Quiet... Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We intensively investigate properties before we rent any vacation residence. Usually we hit pay dirt. This cottage was no exception. The open view of the river, the well-appointed living space, and cottage's tranquility made the stay one of the highlights of our trip. We even met the owner's sister, Kathleen was is a renowned Native American artist. Her work is featured at the Museum of the North. Thanks for making the chalet more than we had ever imaged.

Nice, comfortable stay on the river

  • 5 of 5

Great place to spend vacation time. Cottage was comfortable, and a lot of needed kitchen utensils (although didn't use them), towels, toiletries, ect. were available. The main bedroom's bed was very comfortable with cozy pillows and bedspread/covers. It was a very relaxing stay, and will rent again if needed this summer!

Thank you for the ease of use and friendly communications.
