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.

A wonderful, quiet and cute cabin off the beaten path.

  • 4 of 5

This is a dry cabin so with that said it was a well kept and makes for a cozy night! It has a small fridge, microwave, table and a nice heater! The outhouse is very nice and actually pretty funny (decorations)! My husband has a bad back so he had a rough night of sleep... but he needs a firm bed (Not everyone does) and there were plenty of blankets.

We met Brolene and one of her sons who were very pleasant and informative. Thanks again for a great place to stop!

We had a wonderful time on our romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfectly cozy and accommodated all of our needs! The bed was very comfortable and easy to get a goodnight sleep to be well rested for the glacier in the morning! There were a few nice restaurants only a short drive away but also plenty of storage room in the cabin for all of our snacks. The wifi was hard to connect to and stay connected to but i think that is the point of renting a cabin in the woods! It was the perfect little escape from reality for our overnight trip! Thanks for letting us stay!

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!

Location

We are just minutes from the majestic Matanuska Glacier, the only glacier accessible by road. Several area businesses offer guided Glacier hikes, flight seeing, and rafting. Summer wildflowers abound right out your door. Our area is known for the incredible fall colors in early to mid September. You will be astounded at the golden autumn leaves surrounding you. Then in the winter come look for the Northern Lights out your windows. What a breathtaking area!! Come visit us!
