Fabulous home with unmatched beauty outside every window.

  • 5 of 5

This home is really special. It's very clean and beautifully decorated. Has everything you need--plenty of room for a big family, the kitchen is well stocked including spices and some condiments in the fridge, lots of comfy places to sit and visit, a gorgeous deck with BBQ, fishing tackle and boats for the beautiful lake just down the steps (we fished off the pier and caught dinner!), friendly and helpful hosts. But the best part of all is the beautiful view of the woods and lake from the living room windows. A feast for the eyes and heart every day! We would definitely rent this house again. Why look for another when you could be here? Loved it.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed a place to stay for our annual State Fair visit & this place is the perfect location! My only regret is that we didn't plan an extra day or two to just stay at the home and enjoy all of the amenities, especially that gorgeous lake! Beautiful location, roomy home with all the features you could want. The owners had superior communication & really have thought of just about everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It'll be our "go-to" place in Palmer from here out! Book without hesitation! :)

Quiet solitude, Beautiful views, lovely home,

  • 5 of 5

Perfect base to relax, enjoy and explore Alaska. cool crisp mornings with a steaming cup of coffee on the covered porch overlooking a serene private lake - perfect. Plenty of room for the kids to explore and have fun - Canoes, paddle boats, bikes, fishing, hiking trails, keep everyone entertained. The home is well appointed and family friendly. Smores around the campfire (fire ring) and a glass of wine to close the day. The scenery is amazing and location is perfect base for taking in the beauty of Alaska. Denali is 4 hours north, Kenai National park is 3 hours and Homer is 4 hours. Closer to Palmer take in the Matanuska glacier one hour drive north along the Glenn Highway and Hatcher pass - both breathtaking. The owners are very helpful and friendly. It is a private residence during the off season - the owners were there when we arrived and for our last two days of our stay - staying in the downstairs unit and working around the property.

Our First Trip To Alaska

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Alaska and we couldn't have been more pleased with the house. We came in late on a Wednesday and had no time to get groceries, it was so nice to have coffee there for us in the morning and believe me having your morning coffee on the deck looking at those mountains was heavenly. The owners were so nice and made everything easy and we had no worries about anything. The house was so beautiful and comfortable and we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay again. Thank you letting us stay at your home.
