Liked it so much we changed plans and came back!
What can I say that others have not? We first stayed in the Black Bear cabin and even our teenage grandsons were impressed. It was everything that we wanted, needed and more. My oldest grandson said it was the first time he had ever gone home from a vacation with all his clothes clean, ha! We were fortunate to stay in the Fishermans Folly after another rental later in the month was a disaster-not one of theirs-and we could not stay there. Jacque asked me to compare the two cabins and, really, it is very difficult. Other than the decor they both go above-and-beyond the usual vacation rental and if we could have brought either cabin home with us, we would have! I could imagine us, a retired couple, living comfortably in either of them. Truly a home away from home! Rating: 5 out of 5

The best stay I've had

I absolutely loved this place! I felt that it was worth every penny! It totally beat staying in a hotel; for the same amount of money. It was very clean and homie!! My boyfriend is stationed at Eielson AFB, so this was a GREAT getaway for him! It was also a great place to unwind after we toured the city. We literally had everything we needed in this cabin(fisherman folly). The only thing we brought were groceries. The owner of this property are very nice. I have recommended this place to my friends and family who plan to visit Alaska. Once my guy earns more leave(which will be in November) I will be staying here again. We'll probably stay at "the blackbear", because my son will be with us!

Great place to stay

We stayed in September 2011 long weekend and this house exceeded all expectations! ! My 7 years daughter enjoyed the house most. It was a fabulous house, fully furnished, spacious and very private. The house was very clean, well equipped, well decorated, We loved Homer and will be back again and hope to stay in this house because it was a large part of what made this such a wonderful vacation. This house is like your own private resort. Excellent customer service as well.

About the owner: Assisting folks in finding their Alaska home and property is our passion. We decided long ago that it would be a natural choice to also share our local expertise and love of our great state with not just homes and properties but with vacations too. There is so much to see and do here, and we have a very central location. Whether your stay is just a 'getaway' from your normal to relax or as a base camp to explore what Alaska has to offer, Fisherman's Folly is convenient and comfortable. Professional, friendly and available service with local knowledge. Jacque was born on Elmendorf AFB and is an Air Force brat. Her pop served 23 1/2 years and was stationed all over the US and Tripoli Libya. After his retirement in 1982, the family moved to Wasilla Alaska and has been here since. Jacque also has a background as a Palmer and Wasilla police officer so she knows the back roads and neighborhoods very well. She became licensed and joined her husband Larry in real estate in 2001. Larry is a Montana transplant and fell in love with Alaska from the minute he arrived. He understands the draw to move to this amazing state. If you need any fishing tips, he is always willing to share that advice as well! He has been licensed in real estate since 1997.
Why the Owner Chose Wasilla:
Located just inside the heart of Wasilla, just a hop and skip away from mile 40 of the Parks Highway. Amenities very close by are restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, clothing stores, discount box stores, souvenirs, movie theaters, lakes, rivers, hiking, biking, trails, blueberry picking, skiing, swimming wildlife viewing, fishing, boating and all kinds of places to take photos of your Alaskan adventures!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
