2 Bdrm,1 Bath On The Side Of The Mountain With 180 Degree View Of The Mountains
About Robert Ham
Robert moved to Alaska in 1982 and settled in the Valley in 1997. Robert built this cabin himself in 1998. He lives on the property in a separate residence year round.
Robert Ham purchased this Cabin in 1997
Why Robert Ham chose Palmer
When I purchased this property it was undeveloped. I had one thing in mind as I looked for my future home location. It had to have a view. So I drove to the location, got out and started hiking up the mountain. When I found a large flat spot among heavy timber I knew I was high enough to have a view but I couldn't see through the trees. I knew if I did enough clearing I would have that Alaskan view I had been dreaming of for so many years. I bought the property, built a driveway and cleared a site for my little log home.
What makes this Cabin unique
I can ride my 4 wheeler or snowmobile from my home to miles of trails in the mountains behind the cabin. Moose are seen all year round so pay attention every time you walk out the door. You might get the surprise of your life standing in the driveway. The quiet is something I cherish. The cabin is high enough above the valley floor to sit on the covered deck and watch the storm cells move across the valley. It is a wonderful feeling to sit under the deck cover when it is raining, all warm and dry and watch the day go by.

The cabin was very clean and the view was amazing.
This cabin was amazing!! The views from the deck were incredible. The cabin is clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. Perfect for my husband and I and would be perfect for a family with the two extra sleeping cabins. I would highly recommend this cabin!!!
We were looking for a cabin out of the city to use as a base to go hiking and exploring. This was the perfect location outside of Palmer. It was near Independence Mine and an hour away from hiking on the Mantanuska glacier (def a highlight)! The view of the mountains were amazing. Blackout blinds were very useful in June to keep out the sun in the evening. It was a great cabin to come back to after a long day of hiking to relax. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks Bob for your hospitality!
Quiet, peaceful, great view
This was a great accommodation; I travel usually alone on business to the Mat-Su area and of the various places I've stayed this is my favorite; ideal scale for one person (although other bedrooms are available in small adjacent dwellings). It had the quiet, peaceful surroundings I crave, great view with abundant natural light, very nice deck. Only negative is the well water which could use a purifier. That said, this was a very comfortable place to come home to after work and I will certainly visit again.
I am sorry you found the well water less than it should be. A quick change out of the carbon filter is all it took to remedy the problem
Great view, cozy accommodations. Quiet and private.
Great view. The covered porch is the best asset - morning coffee with the fabulous Mountain View was my favorite part of the day. Great kitchen, cozy blankets and even some board games. Beds were comfortable. Had everything we needed. Definitely recommend a stay here.
Palmer Alaska rest and relaxation
Enjoyed property very much. Had everything needed for a place close enough to everything but far enough away to give you a sense of being remote. Porch was a great feature for kicking back and enjoying peace. Host left all the information you needed to find whatever you are looking for. Would definitely go again.
