  • clean, comfortable, convenient

    "We stayed here for nearly a month. The condo was clean and very comfortable, with lots of amenities close by. There are at least 3 fitness clubs within a 5 minute drive. Glad we stayed there!"

  • Excellent view and Alaskan hospitality

    "Great spot right on river, very comfortable, and hospitable. Right in the heart of the Kenai Peninsula, with fabulous fishing, wildlife viewing, and view."

  • Great location

    "We stayed for 2 nights and found the property spacious, comfortable, clean and the kitchen well-equipped. Since it was the middle of summer and we had a small child with us, the large, darkened bedrooms were much appreciated. We hope to stay there again."

    "I can't say enough about our stay at the Amber Lake Cabin. Our family of 5 (kids 11, 9, and 6) vacationed in Alaska this summer and chose this as our retreat - we couldn't have been more pleased! The pictures do not do it justice. The cabin was very well appointed and comfortable. The basic amenities (linens, towels, kitchenware, etc.) were all as good as our own home, and the kitchen was well-stocked with spices, condiments, and coffee / hot cocoa, though we had brought our own. It was the "extras" that truly made this place special, however. As advertised, Tom provided bicycles, fishing poles, a paddleboat, kayak, stand-up paddle board, and rubber boat for our use on the lake. We spent 2 whole afternoons playing in the cove and lake - even swimming a bit (the water was chilly, but not cold - at least in late July!). The water was so calm, I just lay on the paddle board and listened to the birds and wind for a while - much needed peace and escape! We made fires in the fire pit and cooked hot dogs, sausages and s'mores. You don't get any of these things at the Princess Cruise Line lodges.... Hal and Nancy (the caretakers) were wonderful. We spent time just chatting and telling stories with them. We didn't get to see their sled dogs, but they offered many times to take us. They were more than willing to get us any assistance required. To touch on some other renter comments - Yes, at the Amber Lake Cabin you are off the grid. We didn't have cell phone coverage to speak of or reliable WiFi at the cottage. Frankly we didn't need it. We are modern folks and it took a leap of faith at first - but WE DIDN'T NEED IT! Even the kids didn't suffer (much!) - they had to PLAY OUTSIDE! But for those in withdrawal - cell phone coverage picks up a couple of miles from the cabin on the road. Those who wish to rent the cabin - enjoy the peace! The road is long - 12 miles gravel and 6 miles paved to get back to the Parks Hwy. As long as you budget time (about 30 min) - it wasn't a big deal. NOTHING is close in this part of Alaska. The bigness and remoteness is part of its beauty. We still managed to spend time in Denali - the Park, Husky Homestead, and ATV tour, though I would budget at least an entire early start day for that - maybe 2. We did a flight seeing tour out of Talkeetna (Talkeetna Air Taxi - see my Trip Advisor post about them - they were great) and really had a blast. We highly recommend the Amber Lake Cabin. Book it and ENJOY!"
