Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Wasilla - Black Bear Bungalow

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Nestled amongst the birch and alder, Black Bear Bungalow sits a top its perch with views of Pioneer Peak and the Chugach range. The views can be seen from the main living area, the expansive deck as well as the bedroom and another upper private deck.

This rustic but completely modern cabin may trigger your childhood imagination of an Alaska cabin (something from the Grizzly Adams era if you are as old as we are).

The kitchen is fully stocked with all conveniences (minus the food). You will notice that you have most of the kitchen niceties to create your beautiful comfort food, a perfect romantic meal to share or a simple BBQ.

Pillow top mattresses allow you to sleep in comfort as you settle in to your home away from home. Just as an extra, every bed and pillow are protected with mattress and pillow protectors.

Just in case you stay a little longer or wish not to bring home dirty clothes Black Bear Bungalow offers a full size wash and dryer for your added convenience.

Like Goldie Locks would say…Black Bear Bungalow is just right!

Whether you choose to relax and get away from it all or simply use the charming cabin as a place to rest your weary head after exploring Alaska, comfort and convenience are foremost with Suite Dreams Alaska!

You can choose your theme in one of four 'cabins' but the amenities are the same. Each has a full kitchen, full size refrigerator, dining area, living room, large bedroom area, full bathroom, washer & dryer and private decking.

Other themed cabins available are:

Fisherman's Folly

Moose Manor

Alaska Dreams

Great for vacations, honeymoons, family and class reunions, a long weekend retreat or simply as temporary housing.

Two children under the age of 12 are excluded from additional guest charges.

About Larry & Jacque Ficek

About Us

“It’s Your Dream, That Makes it Ours, Too!”

Assisting folks in finding their Alaska home and property is our passion. Professional, friendly and available service with local knowledge.

We decided long ago that it would be a natural choice to also share our local expertise and love of our great state with not just homes and properties but with vacations too.

Jacque was born on Elmendorf AFB and is an Air Force brat. Her pop served 23 1/2 years and was stationed all over the US and Tripoli Libya. After his retirement in 1982, the family moved to Wasilla Alaska and has been here since. Jacque also has a background as a Palmer and Wasilla police officer so she knows the back roads and neighborhoods very well. She became licensed in and joined her husband Larry in real estate in 2001.

Larry is a Montana transplant and fell in love with Alaska from the minute he arrived. He understands the draw to move to this amazing state. If you need any fishing tips, he is always willing to share that advice as well! He has been licensed in real estate since 1997. Larry is well versed in negotiations and the current status of the market.

We both really enjoy meeting new people and sharing our local knowledge to folks visiting our area.

Why Larry & Jacque Ficek chose Alaska

What makes this cabin unique

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I traveled to Alaska and chose this cabin on a whim. The owners were very specific on directions to the cabin and we were able to find it easily. The accommodations were perfect and the location was in the heart of Wasilla but felt like we were in the mountains. Although our stay was short, the cabin was a welcome after our days of adventure. Next time I venture to the Wasilla, I will definitely return to the the Black Bear Bungalow!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was super cute, super comfortable, and had everything we needed! Great location for visiting the Palmer/ Wasilla area. Close to town, beautiful view off the deck and porch. The theme runs through the entire cabin to some of the tiniest details. We came down for a State Hockey Tournament with our two kids. It was really nice to come back to a place that was like home away from home where we could relax and enjoy each others company. We even partook in some of the games the cottage had to offer. If its not booked up, we would stay here again for our next visit! It really is a treat! Don't miss out!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We do try and make all the cabins more like what you would expect at home. It is always great to hear that our guests enjoyed themselves and were comfortable. We have three others to choose from in Wasilla so hopefully we will see you again! We even have one on the Big Island of Hawaii now too (different style-more modern) but same us and all the amenities you expect. Thank you again! Jacque & Larry

Trip to visit relatives

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Black Bear Cottage and was very impressed. These cottages have everything anyone would want or need. The owners have done an outstanding job in thinking of everything guests would need during their stay. The decor is themed by the name of the cabin, therefore ours had black bears and the most beautiful black/red decorations throughout. Cottages have all ammendities that you would want or need. Waking up to fresh coffee (that was provided) was just awesome! Loved these cottages and would recommend them to anyone. These could actually be lived in as a home for a short period of time and would accommodate that need.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I had to travel to Wasilla for work. It was suggested that I stay in a cabin or a bed and breakfast because of the lack of quality hotels and I was provided some recommendations. I always stay in hotels when I travel for work and so this was a new experience and I was a little uncertain. I chose to stay at the Bear Bungalow and it is one the best lodging experiences I have ever had. The cabin was very comfortable and very accommodating. Even though I did not use it much the kitchen was well-stocked with everything you would need. The cabin view off the back deck was amazing. The owners were very accessible/helpful by phone and answered all my questions. I think I enjoyed the cabin so much because of how much it felt like being in a home. If you are going to be in or around Wasilla you need to stay here, you won't be disappointed, in fact you will be pleasantly surprised just like I was. If I get the pleasure of going back to Alaska I would want to stay here again and again!
