About Donna Davis

Johnnie and Donna came from the deep South, so southern hospitality is a part of who they are. Like other young couples, they came to Alaska seeking an adventure, reared their family, and now enjoy their grandchildren.

Johnnie has worked in the Information Technology department of the local electric cooperative for over 36 years. Donna worked as an Administrative Director of the local community senior center, managed an adult day care program for the frail and elderly in a home-based business for 15 years, and recently retired.

Now they are ready for their next adventure, sharing their home and hosting families so others can enjoy their own Alaskan adventure.

Why Donna Davis chose Palmer

Palmer is a small community town, populated by colonists in the 1930s, with a lot of history that is still remembered and celebrated with Colony Day events in June and December. Combine the small community atmosphere with the breathtaking beauty of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley surrounded by mountains; add the long days of summer that produce the most extraordinary flowers and vegetables highly admired at the Alaska State Fair in late August; and top it off with all the fishing, hunting, 4 wheeling, snow machining, cross-country skiing, wildlife viewing in your front and back yard. We have been blessed to have found our small piece of the Last Frontier.

What makes this lodge unique

Location, location, location! Moose Comfortable Vacation Rentals is located on over 3 acres of Alaska wilderness, surrounded by spectacular panoramic views of the Chugach Mountain Range, Pioneer Peak, and the Knik Glacier. Canoe Lake (stocked with fish) is within walking distance and just a bit further is the Kepler-Bradley Lake State Recreation Reserve that includes miles of well-maintained and marked wilderness trails that weave among 13 lakes with stunning mountain views along the way. We border the Palmer Hay Flats State Game Refuge which is rich with wildlife, moose, wolf, beaver, etc., salmon streams, nesting eagles along with other birds of prey, water fowl and migratory birds.

Yet, just a few miles away you will find great restaurants, fun shopping, emergency clinics, and a hospital. And the city of Anchorage, with all of its attractions, is only 35 miles away.

The Cozy Moose was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest place we stayed in during our 2 weeks in Alaska, including Princess lodges, B&Bs and other VRBO units. Very comfortable. Great location just off Glenn and Parks highways. Close to Hatcher Pass, Matanuska valley and Chugach State Park. Super comfy king bed, everything we needed in the kitchen area, nice private deck with a view of mountains, and a nice sitting area with couch, chair and large flat screen TV (although we didn't have time to watch much). Bathroom was nice with plenty of quality towels. Nice parking area and private keypad entry made getting in and out easy for the 3 days we were there. Had a friendly chat with Johnnie one day - nice guy. Donna had some chocolates and muffins on the table when we checked in. A simple but appreciated gesture. I doubt you could find a better place to stay.

Cozy Moose Suite was a perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

The Cozy Moose suite layout was really well done, very clean, had beautiful views and nice privacy. We really liked that it had a comfortable king size bed. The fresh muffins and chocolates that were provided upon our arrival was also a nice touch. The kitchen was very well stocked so meals could easily be made. Excellent place to stay and would definitely stay here again!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cozy Moose! The accommodations were nicer than we could have imagined and we felt right at home from the moment we arrived. We had everything we needed for our Alaskan adventures and the location was the great home base for all of our activities. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this place to everyone!

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We walked into the cozy moose suite and everything was so clean and comfortable.. The views were breathtaking and we could not get enough of the beautiful gardens. The Davis's make you feel like you are one of their family, and will help you with any questions you may have. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary with family and all we can say is this was an amazing week. We would like to come back with more of our family for a reunion if possible one day.We recommend this to anyone seeking a relaxing, beautiful, and cozy place to stay.

Great VRBO! Exceeded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your lovely VRBO. The home is decorated very nicely! We were looking for a place to stay in Palmer close to the Alaska State Fair. We were delighted to find you home this close to the State Fair. This home far exceeded our expectations! What a view of the mountains from the bedroom window! WOW! We are VRBO owners also and we completely understand all the hard work it takes to decorate and keep a property like this in the excellent condition it is kept! It is very obvious you both take pride in your business. The home had all the accommodations that we needed to be comfortable. The bed slept very good and the linens were of high quality! This is a very quiet and peaceful setting. There were plenty of towels and they were of excellent quality also! Thank you for the muffins they were delicious! We hope to return next year for the State Fair and stay at you lovely home again! We highly recommend this VRBO to other customers!
