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, used lightly and gently as a summer weekend home since then, and with recent updates, 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 deck can be closed off from the stairs with a latching gate, making it toddler-friendly.
The upper level of the house is where you will find the main living room, complete with TV (Internet connectivity only - no satellite or cable to interrupt your vacation), a wood stove, and brand new leather furniture for lounging. Behind the living space, next to the doors leading to the deck, you'll find an excellent eating area, easily seating 6 at a brand new dining set, with great window views to greet you as you sip your morning coffee. The kitchen, outfitted well with everything you need to cook at home, is crisp and clean. Expand your dining and cooking options onto the large, covered deck, where you will find a gas-fired barbeque grill and an outdoor dining set for four.
Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are featured on this upper floor. Each bedroom has a queen bed with brand new memory foam mattresses, fresh and new bedding, 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, a spare room, and a second bathroom for additional guests. The bedroom has two brand new full beds, each with memory foam mattresses and new bedding. The full bathroom is clean, feeling new with nice fixtures and touches. The extra room in the basement houses a bunk bed with a full bed on the bottom and a twin on the top, a couch for lounging and even a game table. 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. Enjoy the sound and sights of the extra visitors and residents in the treetop bird houses on property. When wildfire danger is low, enjoy the firebowl out on the lawn.
A short walk, about 1/4 mile, down the quiet road brings you to a public access to beautiful, turquoise Kenai Lake. We can even rent you kayaks and canoes to make the most of the proximity. You'll be reminded of why you chose Cooper Landing for your Alaskan vacation: pure beauty!
This is a very child-friendly home. There are doors or gates at the top of all stairs, safe railings on the deck, a protective gate for the wood stove, a toddler bed and high chair and portable crib available.

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!

About: My name is Jessica, 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 my husband Courtney and became the mother of three awesome children. 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!
The owners of this home are devoted to giving you a great vacation rental experience, too. This house is truly a second home - it feels loved and lived in - and they have done so many updates and improvements to the furnishings and feel, wanting you to be as comfortable as possible. You have wonderful hosts when you stay at the Starbright Home!
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.
