Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 5
About Diane Paoletti
My husband John and I, Diane, built this cabin in 2003, on Cottonwood Creek. I believe we offer something very unique within the Matsu Valley, as we are located on a salmon spawning creek, as designated by AK Fish & Game . We offer the convenience of being only minutes from downtown Wasilla or Palmer, yet the seclusion most people are looking for. As locals with knowledge of the community, our objective is to diligently assist you in meeting your vacation goals, while making sure you are as comfortable as possible with your lodging. We love Alaska & love to share our knowledge of this great state too!
What makes this Cabin unique
Waterfront with your own private deck!
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
This home was the perfect base for our exploration of the Wasilla / Palmer / Talkeetna area. After a full day of activity it was wonderful to unwind in the quiet homey atmosphere. Definitely recommend for adults or families.
Delightful little cabin in the woods
Enjoyed comfort and privacy here. Easy drive from Anchorage and to Denali excursion. Diane our host was readily available if we needed anything but respected our privacy. Clean, modern cabin with Alaskan rustic decor. Would stay here again.
Stunning Cabin, Stunning View
We recently took a trip to Wasilla and due to family changes, had to find a place to stay at the last minute. We stumbled upon Alaska Creekside Cabins and made the reservation. Our arrival was delayed due to the airlines and by the time we arrived it was almost midnight. The driving directions were spot on and made it simple to find the place, even in the dark.
The first thing we noticed upon arrival was how clean the cabin was. I'm a pretty big neat freak and could easily walk through the cabin barefoot without stepping in any dirt or crumbs (and my feet stayed clean!). The entire property was pristine and clearly well maintained. Our visit was only 4 nights but we wish it could have been longer. Everything worked properly. The bed was extremely comfortable. Even the towels were soft and reminded us of an upscale hotel. The pantry was stocked with a few food items and it was clear the owners had taken time in advance to think of every contingency. Thank you for providing such a relaxing haven for us! We will be repeat customers, for sure!
Thanks so much for the review Jennifer. We really appreciate it. We strive to provide the best stay possible for our guests and it makes it all worth while when we have guests like you take the time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again, Diane
Great location to tour the area, quiet after a day of sight seeing with a lovely view. Diane had everything to make cooking easy and the place is adorable and very clean. great space!
Great place and great location!
Nice little cabin for a weekend getaway for 2, but not for 4.
We enjoyed our private and cozy cabin, but the "extra" guests fee was outrageous for what you get. We had 4 people (2 couples) and it was too small and I did not enjoy going up and down the very steep ladder to the loft area. No privacy and very little seating for 4 of us in the living room. No dishwasher and guests are required to put their own dishes away at the end of the stay - but it seems these are not inspected. I had to re-clean dishes in the cupboard as it looked like someone before us had done a poor job of getting rid of strawberry ice cream. Overall, not impressed for what we paid. We did get to see a moose right in the yard which made the trip. There are lots of things to do in Wasilla and Palmer (we enjoyed the fair, Matanuska Glaicer, and Hatcher Pass). There are no hiking trails from the cabin; the description and pictures make you think this is far out in the woods, but it is not.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We have had more than 4 guests stay in the cabin before and have never had anyone comment that it was too small, so I guess that would be a personal preference. I recall your questioning of the extra guest fee before your arrival since you did not notice it when you made the reservation.The loft is quite sizable and the fee covers the extra cleaning necessary for additional guests. As far as the ladder being too steep for certain people, that is why pictures are provided on this site. Most people don't find it difficult to access the loft. If you had brought this to my attention and wanted to cancel your reservation because of this , I would have gladly refunded any monies. We want our guest's to be happy with their stay and do our utmost to see that they are.
We take pride in the cleanliness of our cabins so I am surprised you found ice-cream in a bowl, as it is part of the housekeeper's responsibility to inspect. Thanks for bringing that to our attention. There are hiking trails from the cabin, so I wish you had asked, as we are happy to supply all information about this area to our guests. And while it does appear that we are far out in the woods, we are actually only 7 mi from downtown Palmer or Wasilla, which quite a few guests comment that they like - our convenient location.
