About Bear Den Cabins Brolene Gerwig

We, Chuck and Brolene Gerwig, have lived in the community on Victory Road for 23 years, in fact we met while working at Victory Bible Camp at the end of the road! It has been a great place to raise our 4 kids! After having worked at the camp for years Chuck started a construction business in the Glacier View Community, building log and frame houses, remodeling, plowing snow, and little bit of everything! He has had the opportunity to snowmachine the Iditarod trail, helping to film the 2004 Iditarod Dog Sled Race. In 2014 he was featured on Building Alaska. The log home he and his crew built sits beside the Matanuska Glacier. Brolene has so enjoyed raising the kids with this incredible nature right outside our door. She tries to keep up with all that Chuck does, and each week does a day of school nursing in 2 small local schools. The family has been blessed to hunt, snowmachine, 4 wheel, canoe, kayak, and hiked in the area. You don't need to go far to be astounded with the views!

Bear Den Cabins Brolene Gerwig purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Bear Den Cabins Brolene Gerwig chose Alaska

We bought this property in the fall of 2014 from our dear neighbor who lived here for 36 years. She and her husband bought this, one of the first cabins built on the road, and turned it into their gracious home, which welcomed many over the years. Now we welcome others to come experience the Glacier View area with its beauty and charm.

What makes this cabin unique

Coming to the Bear Den Cabins’ Cub Cabin opens up the chance to experience the rural mountain setting of Glacier View, Alaska. Mountain hiking, canoeing or kayaking at Long Lake, Weiner Lake, or the lakes up the road, glaicer hiking on the Matanuska Glacier, white water rafting on the Matanuska River, all are just minutes away. Several local lodges and Cafes are nearby (10-20 miles). Many things to do. Or just rest in the tranquil quiet of the country road community. Come enjoy it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely little cabin! We are on the tail end of our 2 week Alaska Adventure and this place has been quite a nice surprise. The cabin has the perfect amenities and is beautifully put together--even the outhouse! Thank you for letting us enjoy your piece of Alaska.

Great little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the cub cabin! We were only there for a night but wish we'd stayed longer. It's very cozy and stocked with everything you need. I would highly recommend renting this cabin, and I hope to stay here again some time!

The cabin was very clean, quaint, affordable and cute. Brolene checked in with us the night before we arrived and gave great directions. I would definitely recommend it to any friends or family passing through the area!

Lovely little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at Cub Cabin. It was beautiful and well equipped, and it was exactly the escape I was looking for. Close to Matanuska Glacier and various hiking trails. I loved the adorable little outhouse! Excellent communication with the owners as well. Thank you so much Brolene!!

Very cute, well-equipped cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late to this little cabin but it is by far the place I wish we had had more time to enjoy. It's located in a very nice, quite little neighborhood off the busy road and is just as cut on the inside as it is on the outside. Electricity in the cabin and the outhouse was a very nice surprise as well. The outhouse is the best one we experienced on our trip...by a long shot! I would definitely recommend this cabin to friends and family.
