  • Wonderful Stay

    "Our large family found plenty of room to relax, play, and cook in this well-located home. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-equipped (including a brand new refrigerator installed just before we arrived!), and Alaskan winter sports were close at hand! The owners were helpful and accessible when needed. A beautiful setting for our Alaskan family Christmas reunion."

  • Our Rockin' Alaskan Adventure!

    "We had the BEST time at Canoe Lake Chalet! With this being my first time using VRBO I was really hesitant with any property. Geri quickly broke me of my hesitation! The next morning after I requested more info she called me and we talked about every single detail of how the process would work. We had a group of 10 adults that need our space and we found it in this awesome chalet. The back porch faces north directly towards Hatcher Pass right over a beautiful lake. It truly feels like you have your own little piece of heaven. When we were there pretty much everything was frozen but we could tell Geri and her husband have everything you need to have fun on the lake including paddle boats! Lots of bicycles are there too! We stayed in the cabin for a week and a couple of the days we just took off on foot from the cabin and found miles upon miles of hiking trails practically at your front door. Perhaps our greatest adventure was when Geri set us up with the good people at Talkeetna Air Taxi and Denali Zip Lining for a group scenic flight where we landed on a glacier and took a snowmobile to a zip lining course that really was an experience! It's hard to say what our favorite part of the chalet was but since all 10 of us are on a national tour of a musical, Million Dollar Quartet (look us up), we go months without a kitchen. Let me tell you, this place has EVERYTHING you need!! Cooking for 2 is hard enough...10 is even more of a challenge, as you can expect! You'll be located soooooo close to Palmer and Wasilla you will not have to go far to get any food. We ate ALL of our meals but one at the property :) I recommend this property for anybody and am already ready to plan my next trip!"

  • One of the best vacation spots of our lives!

    "I can't imagine a vrbo more perfect for us than Little Fireweed Cottage. The owners were very easy to work with from start to finish. We are two couples in their 50s & 60s. One has some physical impairments, so our only suggestion would be grab-bars and non-slip decals for the bathtub. She did take a tumble during our stay. This was an ideal vacation spot ... close to everything, yet private. No traffic noise. There were adjoining properties, but the most we saw or heard were "children" noises from down the hill, and only during the day. Very faint, no problem. Wildflower, native grass "lawn," just like we have at our lakehouse in northern Wisconsin. We had moose in the yard, nearly every night. I suspect there aren't bears in the area, as the garbage bin at the end of the driveway went undisturbed. We were less than a half-mile from the Down East Saloon and liquor store. Check out open-mic night. FUN! Got some pointers while there, on where to dine in Anchorage on our way home. Only a mile or two from the Old Town Area and entrance to the spit. From the deck, the view includes a bit of Beluga Lake, the Homer airport, the bay and the mountains! Imagine sitting in the hot tub at the end of the day with a glass of wine, watching the everchanging lightshow on the distant peaks ... Close to the museums, nature trails, the Bear Creek Winery and a paved walk that runs to Old Town. New washer/dryer was nice to have. Ample towel supply, great bedding, comfortable mattresses, especially if you like them on the softer side. They've added room-darkening shades in the bedrooms. Adequate storage. Nice supply of 'left-behind' spices, dishware, utensils and cooking supplies ... even Panko for our halibut and salmon. Could use more kitchen storage containers like Rubbermaid. Clean, comfortable, close to everything, private and a hot tub. What more could you ask for? Perhaps the perfect weather (no rain) we had, and no mosquitoes. The only "skeeters" we saw were on the trails at the Wynn Nature Center. Don't forget to take a sidetrip up Skyline Drive ... what a view. We rented the Cottage for eight days. Ten would have been perfect. So I guess we must return, eh? If we ever return to Alaska for a third vacation, we'd pick the Cottage again. Homer was a great town, from walking on the beach, museums, restaurants (including Hobo Jim's show at AJ's Old Towne Steakhouse), nature trails, the dock-creatures tour for $5, several visits to Salty Dog, boat excursions, etc."

  • Beautiful place, wonderful for large groups

    "We loved everything about the property. You provided everything we need. The only thing that was a little problematic was that the hot water was so hot and with just a tiny fluctuation it went from cold to super hot. Other than that we were so happy. Thank you so much!"
