Fantastic location and even better house to stay in!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six had no problem being comfortable in this wonderful location. The owner was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about things to do in the region. She also made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. In this well-stocked house, we not only had all the basics needed but bicycles fishing rods and multiple types of boats… it was very hard for us to leave. We certainly hope to return again someday. The lake was peaceful and did I say it was full of trout? My seven-year-old had no problem reeling them in.

Owner's Response: John's family with 4 kids were delightful and had a great time at our property. They enjoyed playing and fishing on the lake with boats and lake toys, they had camp fires, played lawn games and and explored the surrounding area's attractions. They did great fishing on the lake for trout and local rivers catching salmon!! They abided by all house rules and left the house so nice and clean. We really enjoyed assisting them with vacation plans and getting to know them. They really touched our hearts!! It is wonderful to when our guests enjoy the lake and chalet like they did. We hope they return. Geri McCann Canoe Lake Chalet - Where the fun begins!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Great convenient location but feels like you are secluded on a lake side retreat. Beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Everything you could possibly need is provided and the owners are a phone call away. The owners are very nice and responsive. The decor is adorable, very Alaskan get away themed. Would definitely recommend this rental

We are part of the Kepler-Bradley Lakes State Recreation area with 10 lakes. Beautiful wilderness trails provide great hiking, mountain biking, or cross-country skiing . Canoe lake is stocked with rainbow trout and grayling, its non-motorized quiet and pristine. Try som surrounding catch and release lakes - with huge fish! Ice fishing is great in the winter, along with ice skating and skiing on the lake. Relax around a camp fire by the lake and soak in the Alaskan wilderness serenaded by loons and varieties of lake birds. Watch our nesting eagles and hawks hunt and dive for fish. View incredible northern lights displays right out your window!

Experience Alaska's best adventures in the surrounding area: salmon fishing, hike on Matanuska Glacier, jet boat or helicopter to Knik Glacier, white water rafting through jagged mountain ranges, wilderness trails, extreme mountain hiking or climbing, horse back riding.
