  • A real Alaskan taste

    "This was a great stay, the hostess is great. It was quiet and relaxing. I took a hike around the whole property and the weather was great. Food was yummo! I hope to stay again. Truly breathe-taking views both inside the house and outside!"

  • We truly enjoyed our stay ... and Paul and Virginia were such a delight and great hosts!

    "We stayed in the one bedroom cabin and it everything we needed was there ... and the place was spotless! We enjoyed meeting Paul and Virginia and they are wonderful hosts. If visiting Denali and Anchorage, this is a great midway location. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need! The only recommendation I would make is for a larger TV for those that want to just 'stay in' and relax. We had a great time and look forward to another visit!"

  • Beautiful mountain home with epic views!

    "This home was perfect for our girls retreat, we absolutely loved it! The home had huge windows with a gorgeous unimpeded view of the mountains from the great room that included both the kitchen/dining areas and living room. I loved that there was a large area for people to gather and also a lot of bedrooms. Beautiful home and the owner was a joy to work with and extremely easy to contact. Seamless check-in and check out. I would definitely recommend this home for small parties and family getaways. Close to downtown Palmer, the Butte hiking area (wonderful and beautiful hike if you've never done it) and the Reindeer Farm. We had a wonderful stay there and would love to go again."

Alaska Travel Tips

Getting to Alaska Vacation Rentals

Most people will fly to Alaska; the primary airport hub is in Anchorage. During the summer months, there are direct daily flights between Anchorage and other major United States cities such as Denver, Minneapolis St. Paul, Portland, Salt Lake City, Dallas Ft. Worth, Atlanta, Seattle and San Francisco. From Canada, there are frequent flights from Vancouver and Toronto. Alaska is popular vacation destination for travelers from Europe and the Far East. There are regular commercial flights from Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and also Frankfurt in Germany. From Anchorage, you can get domestic flights to your destination.

Sometimes if the area you are visiting is more remote, you will need to travel by seaplane or ferry to get there. The road and rail network in Alaska is limited by the rugged glacial terrain but still provides good access to most major towns and tourist attractions. Alaska is a destination where it is helpful to have some time to spare. The landscapes are so beautiful that it is sometimes worth taking the time to enjoy rather than rushing from place to place.

Activities and Attractions at Alaska Cabins

Alaska is an adventure and outdoor haven which may be surprising to some, considering the cold climate the state experiences. In both summer and winter, there are a host of great activities that can keep you occupied on your travels. Wherever you go, you will want to take your camera with you to capture the action and great scenery. Some of the great winter attractions are the Northern Lights and the Aurora Borealis. This natural light phenomenon is amazing to see. Alaska has a number of top-quality ski resorts that offer downhill and cross country skiing. Many have snowboarding terrain parks and fun ski schools for kids. Snowmobiles are commonly used to get around in the winter months. It is a popular sport too.

The more traditional way to explore the countryside is by dog sledding. The dogs are superbly trained and exceptionally fast. This is an amazing experience. There are several places in Alaska where you can go whitewater rafting on grade IV and V rapids. Be prepared for the ride of your life on the churning white waters. For paddlers, there are many kayaking opportunities. You can also test your skills in the white waters or opt for something a little more leisurely up the fjords or along the coast. In season, you can experience amazing whale, dolphin and orca sightings and get up close to these magnificent creatures of the sea. There are endless hiking opportunities in Alaska. Serious mountaineers travel to Alaska each year to conquer Denali which is North America’s tallest peak. Alaska also has a rich gold mining history and many of the museums tell tales of the early gold pioneers.
