Recent Alaska reviews

  • Great place in Wasilla.

    "Our family of 4 stayed here for a hockey tournament. It was a great place for resting,being quiet, and it was very comfortable. We could make our own food in the well stocked kitchen. It was cheaper than staying in a motel. The kids liked the games, access to wi-fi, and t.v. (It's winter time- none of that in the summer- we are outside). It was spacious for our family and hockey gear."

  • Perfect Home Base for Homer

    "We loved the architecture and detail in this home - views from every window. This was a very comfortable and quiet base for us. We liked the private entrance and sun deck off the main level. We had a car but were able to walk to the old part of town, the beach, shopping, and an awesome kids' park. The house is 2-bedroom but very spacious. And it worked so well for kids with a big soaking tub and safety gates on the stairs. Also a great place to get some work done - wifi and comfortable desks on both levels. We especially appreciated the opportunity to get some laundry done on our own time. Our hosts were so helpful and patient with us, too! Thank you for a beautiful getaway."

  • "Sweet Retreat"

    "We found Bob's Bungalow the perfect place for our family to stay....all four generations of us! The home was so cozy, clean, and had everything we needed including being very baby friendly. Its location was ideal for taking day trips and was close to stores when needed. How we enjoyed the spectacular view of the snow-covered mountains, kids with dogs playing on the frozen lake, and the magical northern lights! We highly recommend Vicki and her bungalow, and we thank her for the memories!!"

  • Clean, Comfortable, and Well-stocked

    "This lodging worked well for our Girdwood stay for a near-by wedding-family gathering. Appreciated the owners accepted a two night stay. I think this would be a cozy ski-weekend spot to stay. Lots of fun family and local memorabilia in the house."

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.
