Property description

The house is located a few hundred yards upriver and across from the Kenai Princess Lodge, just above the Upper River rapids. The living set up is ideal for a romantic couple, a family of 6 or 4-5 friends. Moose, bear, bald eagles, beavers, goats and mountain sheep are commonly seen from the property. In May and early June, brown bears frequent the property requiring extra caution. Outside there are plentiful wild raspberries in late summer, an outdoor sauna and wade fishing for Rainbows and Dollies.

The fly fishing for trophy rainbow trout and Dolly Varden on the upper river is tremendous between July and late October. During the month of October Silver Salmon can be caught from the property.

The fall season in Cooper Landing is arguably the most beautiful time of the year. As the summer season comes to an end the rainbow trout and silver salmon fishing is at its peak as the deciduous trees turn bright yellow and orange.

The Kenai River is open for fishing between June 11th and May 1st. The ADF&G website is a great source of information on the latest fishing regulations.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: There are few things I enjoy more than floating down the Upper Kenai and few places I find more peaceful than having a cup of coffee in the sun room. I was lucky enough to spend the month of September fishing in Cooper Landing for about a decade before owning this property. For any guests that have not experienced September in Cooper Landing, I strongly recommend it.

Why the Owner Chose Cooper Landing:
There are many houses available for rent in Cooper Landing, but few have the privacy, fishing and beauty of the River House. It is very difficult for my wife to leave this property every year. We have just completed our sixth consecutive rental season and plan to continue renting the house until we retire. We have continually reinvested a minimum of one third of the rental revenue back into the property for the last six years. It is extremely important to us that our guests have a trip of a life time while visiting the River House. This year we have employed Jessica Larsen to locally manage the property during your stay. Jessica will bring a new level of service and expertise in planning your Alaskan adventure.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If the world class rainbow fishing was not enough, the upper river is one of the most beautiful places I have come across. The house is extremely quiet and sits across from the drift only marker on the Upper Kenai (No motors allowed). Just above the property, the river begins to narrow and pick up current. The view from nearly every room in the house is breathtaking. The original house was built in the 50s and has been featured on the cover of several magazines over the years. Great effort has been made to maintain the trees on the property, while keeping them trimmed to ensure views from all angles. There are very few properties on the Kenai river with the privacy and scenery of this location. Brown bears frequent the property in May and early June and leave their mark on an annual basis. By late June the bears move a few miles down river to look for spawning salmon. Rainbows and Dollies can be caught easily for most of the summer and fall. In October Silver Salmon start to move into the slack water before spawning in Kenai Lake.
