Cooper Landing house description

When you choose to stay with us, we go out of our way to make it a full-service experience. Not only will you get welcoming accommodations, we will also help you plan the best possible itinerary for your adventures. Our 'Adventure Guru' is always ready to help connect you to the best activities to suit your needs. We will even go out of our way to outfit your rental home with the groceries you will need for your stay, saving you the unpleasant errands you come on vacation to avoid! Talk to us - we'd love to meet your vacationing needs.

NOTE: This home has just changed ownership and the new owners are doing wonderful improvements to the décor and furnishings. You will find the new space to be even more inviting and comfortable - pictures and descriptions will be updated as they occur, early in 2015. The sleeping arrangements are also improving and expanding! (Leather furniture in the living room, a new dining set seating up to 8, new bedding throughout, two extra full beds.... ask for details. Photos to follow when available.)

This 3+BR/2BA home is located conveniently in Cooper Landing, Alaska, central on the Kenai Peninsula to all the places where you'll be adventuring. Built in 2002 and used lightly and gently as a summer weekend home since then, it is clean and fresh, uncluttered and relaxing. Find a comforting and comfortable place to rest and connect right here!

When you first arrive, you'll be drawn to the large upper covered deck, with its impressive mountain view. You'll love to dine al fresco on the deck, BBQ grill at hand, watching sheep grazing distantly on the mountains or enjoying birds in the birdhouse.

The upper level of the house is where you will find the main living room, complete with TV, a wood stove, and furniture for lounging. Behind the living space, next to the doors leading to the deck, you'll find a tidy dining area, with great window views to greet you as you sip your morning coffee. The kitchen, outfitted well with all appliances and utensils, is crisp and clean.

Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are featured on this upper floor. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and simple touches to inspire relaxation. The bathroom feels fresh and benefits from natural light through a shower window.

The lower level of the house provides a third bedroom and a second bathroom for additional guests. This bedroom is being outfitted with two full beds. The full bathroom is clean, feeling new with nice fixtures and touches. The extra room in the basement will house a bunk bed with a full bed on the bottom and a twin on the top. There is also a toddler bed available as needed, movable to any bedroom.

Downstairs you will also find the full-size washer and dryer.

The lower deck has a swing, perfect for that evening drink, swaying to the sound of the breeze in the forest. The property is well surrounded by mature spruce forest, in a quiet residential area with the small-town vibe.

A short walk, about 1/4 mile, down the quiet road brings you to a public access to beautiful, turquoise Kenai Lake. You'll be reminded of why you chose Cooper Landing for your Alaskan vacation: pure beauty!

Cooper Landing is the best place on the Kenai Peninsula to stage a multi-day stay. Not only is it the most scenic place on the peninsula by most standards (a turquoise river running through an impressive mountain valley, surrounded by national forest and wildlife refuge), it is also centrally located for daytrips in any direction, and it offers great experiences right here in town. Cooper Landing is best known as a fisherman's paradise, with world-class fishing on the Kenai and Russian Rivers just out your door. But it doesn't stop there. Find rafting, kayaking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, endless hiking, mountain biking, gold-panning... adventures await!

As part of our services to our guests, we offer recreation planning services, helping you choose the best of the Kenai Peninsula's offerings to fill your time in paradise. From hiking trail suggestions to bookings on halibut fishing charters to guided fly fishing to wildlife cruises, we are here to connect you. Even if you're not staying with us, feel free to ask for help!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: My name is Jessica Larsen, and I have been a professional in the hospitality lodging industry for many years. I've turned my specialization to private vacation homes in a place I only ever dreamed I would live - Cooper Landing, Alaska. I first started coming to Alaska between college semesters for summer work in Denali National Park in 1998, then moved to the state permanently in 2003. I lived in Anchorage for several years, where I married and became the mother of two awesome little boys. We moved to Cooper Landing, where we had been recreating for years, in 2011 and have felt at home ever since. I find great satisfaction in making a living space feel clean, comforting and welcoming, especially for our guests. It's a pleasure to host you here!

Why Cooper Landing:
It's my pleasure to only manage a few quality homes at a time, to be able to provide each the personal attention it and its guests deserve. This house is a nice addition to my current management accounts because it's so gently lived in, clean and fresh, has a relaxing atmosphere, and suits a family traveling on a moderate budget.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What I like most about this home is the huge covered deck and the porch swing. The birds are very active in the surrounding woods, the breeze is almost always so gentle, and even in a rain, you can stay dry and protected while seeing nature in its majesty. The mountain view from the deck keeps taking my breath away.
