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.

Cozy is just the beginning!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful choice to stay at the Cozy Moose! From our arrival to our departure, we enjoyed the most serene, private and comfortable 4 days, conveniently located to AK Highway #1 yet surrounded by forest with views of the Chugach mountain range! Welcomed with fresh muffins and Hershey's kisses, the suite was warm , inviting and contained everything we needed! Owners were always available when we had questions, but allowed us the complete privacy to enjoy the suite and grounds as if we owned the place! If we ever have the opportunity to visit Palmer again, we wouldn't consider staying anyplace else!

Charming

  • 5 of 5

This well-maintained property is a perfect place to get away from the city and enjoy the beauties of nature right outside your window. The patio offers a wonderful place to enjoy some coffee while taking in the mountain views.

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.
