About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

COME TO ALASKA and enjoy your long awaited Alaskan vacation in a spectacular setting nestled in among the 3,000-7,000' Chugach Mountains. View the wildlife from the front deck and experience the peace and solitude this property has to offer. The chalet sits on the side of a mountain and you may never want to leave. But if you do, just travel six miles down the mountain to Eagle River where you will find shopping and groceries. There, you can access the Glenn Highway and in just ten miles arrive in the city of Anchorage.

This is truly a unique location. Travel from the mountain chalet to the city of Anchorage and places beyond. This is a great location for daytripping. There is so much to do and see.

In state residents who have business, medical, or other needs that bring them iinto Anchorage will find a relaxing, comfortable place to unwind and relax after a tiring day. The fresh air and scenery will take the stress away in short order. It is a short ride to escape the hustle and bustle of your day.

Although we do not yet have a cartop carrier, there is a 16' aluminum canoe available for your use.

SO COME SPEND SOME TIME IN ALASKA - EVERYONE SHOULD VISIT AT LEAST ONCE!

Keywords: 1600 sq.foot chalet located just below tree line in alpine valley. On 2 private acres in

Unforgettable getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin for about a week last month (January) for our 10 year anniversary. To say the least it exceeded our expectations!!!! The photos don't do it justice at all. Such a clean, organized, and beautifully decorated cabin. It was snowing like crazy during our stay so John came by to snow blow 3 times for us! Coming from California one of our hopes for our Alaska winter vacation was to see the Northern lights but were worried we might not see them being a little close to Anchorage. We were delighted to watch them two nights in a row from the cabin window! Overall one of our best vacations and the cabin was a huge part of it. We are hoping to go back soon during summertime. Definitely taking a piece of Alaska and this cabin with me. Thank you John and Ellen!!!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for the wonderful review. I must say, knowing you were from Ca. we were concerned about you getting around during a period of old time typical Alaskan weather. Three snow storms in 7 days, 2 days of 15 below, and a taste of the Aurora, you came through with flying colors. It has been a few years since we've had a good Alaskan winter. Thanks for leaving the place so nice and tidy. John and Ellen

Relaxing, peaceful, stress-free

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything we'd hoped for, and more. Great communication from the owner, clean accommodations, beautiful setting. We enjoyed cooking in the nicely appointed kitchen, and were surprised at all of the things we didn't have to buy because they were already available to use. We plan to recommend this cabin to anyone we know traveling to the area. We hope to return ourselves!

Beautiful and Comfortable Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This log chalet was wonderful! My husband and I had the good fortune to stay for an entire week along with three young adults. In addition to a very complete kitchen, the pantry included items such as cooking oil, paper plates, and cups. There was even butter, gourmet coffee, bread, and half and half waiting for us in the refrigerator! These were welcome surprises.

The house was within easy driving distance of all the places we needed to go (Wasilla, Anchorage), but the stores in Eagle River (such as Fred Myer) were very complete.

The views from the house and decks were amazing - changing every so often as the fog came and went around the mountains. The furniture was all very comfortable. The owner included many extras to make our stay more enjoyable, including backpacks for our use, and many games, which the "kids (ages 20 -31) made use of.

We would recommend this lovely rental to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I wish you could have had better weather, but it's good you appreciate the clouds and fog moving in and out of the valley, it can be pretty cool to watch. Thanks for selecting our home to stay in. John & Ellen

Lovely, friendly log cabin: really home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here for a whole month and what a great joy it has been to be here in this lovely, well looked after log cabin! We've felt at home from the first moment. Everything you could possibly want or need was here and everywhere nice personal touches could be found. The pictures in the cabin are awesome: I would gladly have some of them in my own house ;)

The cabin is in a perfect spot for trips to Seward, Whittier and of course Anchorage but Eagle River has all the shops you might need.

We looked after the grass and the flowers, which added to the 'at home'-feeling and enjoyed sitting and eating on the deck. John came by weekly to look after the garbage, so no worries there for us, which was nice.

All in all: we've thoroughly enjoyed staying here and will gladly come again!

Fantastic time!

This cabin worked perfectly for our girls only trip. Plenty of space to find quiet time. Beautiful views from every window. Furnishings and decor were very tasteful. The owners have everything just right for guests.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our 10 day trip (8 day stay at the cabin) to Alaska. All of the reviews are right on and nothing could have been better. A few nights in the mid 40s was certainly a welcome change from the 90s we already have in Florida. I was able to meet John in person and besides being a Patriots fan (Go Dolphins) he was a pleasure to deal with. He contacted us that he would come by to collect the garbage and water the plants so you don't even have to deal with that. With my son and granddaughter living in Anchorage, this place will be our destination as long as it is offered. Thanks John and Ellen for making our much needed get-a-way a 10.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and thanks for leaving the place so tidy. Thank-you too for the griddle you donated to the cause. It already came in handy yesterday morning, cooking up a bunch of bacon and pancakes for 4 hungry 14 year olds. Go Pats
