Great place! Will come back

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our son and I stayed here for a week in August. We absolutely loved it and were so grateful that we choose this gem over something in town. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The beds were comfy and spacious. The windows have black out shades/curtains, so it made it so we could sleep in. The bathroom is very spacious and beautiful. The kitchen is small, but we used the BBQ and were able to cook some meals. We also adopted Cooper, the owner's dog. He would be at our door in the mornings, just laying on the door mat. He would play with our son and was very lovable. If we could take him home, we would have. The Owner, Richard, was beyond helpful, informative of the area and just down right sweet. He made us feel like family and even went on a couple hikes with us. The Nature Center down the road was a great way to get out and hike. We did see moose on the road to the Nature Center.

We will for sure come back and stay here again. It was perfect for our family!!

Very nice, would recommend!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay! Would recommend! The location is unbeatable. We explored anchorage but also hiked nearby trails. Richard is extremely nice; he even let us use his washer and dryer. The guest house is located on the first floor while his family is on the second. Occasionally you can hear their conversations but it wasn't burdensome. The only con was the small kitchen (which is described in the description). My husband and I enjoy Cooking so Richard let us borrow his pans.. Everything worked out and we had a Great time.

We has a great time! Thanks Richard!

Awesome Unit in the hills of alaska

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special place. It is about 35 minutes outside of Anchorage, about 15 minutes from Eagle River. It is just 3 minutes off of the highway, but yet it feels like you are in the woods. The unit itself is very nice, very spacious, clean and comfortable. It had pretty much all the things you will need to stay and be comfortable. The "kitchen" is very small, with a small fridge, but it met our needs. The bedrooms were spacious, and very comfortable, with TVs in both rooms. There isn't much on TV, but we brought our Amazon fire TV stick with us, so we just plugged it into the one in the first bedroom. The WIFI worked very well.

The owner, who lives on site, is SUPER friendly, and helpful. He let us use his grill so we could cook dinner one night. He also let us adopt his dog, Cooper, while we were there, which was great, cause we were missing our pups. Cooper would hang out with us each morning as we got ready for the days' adventures.

There is a wildlife reserve just up the road, but the day we decided to go check it out, there was a bike race there, so we decided to skip it. That's actually a big regret on my part, cause it is supposed to be amazing.

One night while coming back to the place, we saw two moose lounging in the wetlands along the highway. We stop and took pictures and video, a nice bonus!

There is a Wal-Mart about 10 minutes away, so you can stop and get food or whatever for your stay. We found the prior tenants had left some beer, butter and other stuff, and we left some stuff too.

I would go back here in a heartbeat if I wanted to stay in the area!

Quiet and clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very nice spacious apartment. Just a small kitchenette, but, was fine for us. We did not plan to cook. Richard and Katie were great!

Would definitely rent this one again!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. It was close to a nature center that had observation decks for viewing salmon, bear, beaver and moose. We saw quite a few moose along the road in the area and they were quite willing to pose as we took their picture. Our lodging was very clean and comfortable. It had a full kitchen, large bath, laundry facilities, dining area, etc. The owner was very helpful in finding attractions and places to see wildlife. There was a Walmart and other shopping very close by. The mountain scenery in the area is gorgeous. I would certainly look to stay here on future trips.

Family visit

  • 4 of 5

My husband Mother and father in law enjoyed their stay. Far enough off the beaten path but not too far. Everyone was comfortable. The only issue mentioned was phone service was spotty. Everything else was very pleasant. yes we would choose again.

Thank you
