Property description

The Hirshey Cabin in historic Hope, Alaska is the ideal Alaskan getaway on the Kenai Peninsula with everything you could need for a retreat. You will get the entire 3 bedroom historic
Alaskan cabin, situated on over two acres of wooded land entirely to yourself. This cabin was recently renovated, and comes it fully equipped with a private bath, a lovely kitchen, even a washer and dryer. You will get the feeling of it being your home when you stay at the Hirshey Cabin.

The cabin comes stocked with delicious breakfast options, so whether you need to get an early start or you want to enjoy a leisurely breakfast, simply open your cupboards and you will find hot and cold cereals, homemade oatmeal, pancake mix and syrups, gourmet coffees and teas, bagels and cream cheese, and more. And, in the evening after sitting around the fire pit, cuddle up to a book from our Alaskan collection or a good movie with freshly popped popcorn.

Want to do a bit of exploring? We've got you covered! The cabin comes with 2 mountain bikes and helmets for your use, as well as fishing poles and tackle perfect for salmon slaying along the river!

Nestled 1/2 way between Anchorage and the Kenai on the Kenai Peninsula, Hope boasts white water rafting, salmon river fishing, gold panning, and unforgettable hiking. Visitors love the quaint town of Hope for its peaceful and serene community and the feeling of time travelling back to early Alaskan pioneer days. Hope offers several eateries, including a coffee stand, day cafes, even a truly Alaskan bar right on the ocean with live music every weekend night.

The Hirshey Cabin has hosted weddings and fishing parties, grandparents, families, newlyweds, adventurers, relaxation seekers, and travelers from near and far. Our guests return bringing family and friends. We hope that you will stay with us and be one of our delighted visitors in the Hirshey Cabin.
