"I do a ton of research and this was our third July in a row to the Soldotna area. The first two trips we had okay places to stay, nothing disaster but the Kenai River Retreat was a blast. We thoroughly enjoyed the shore access and all the available equipment. We had our own rods but theirs looked to be in good shape. Nets, coolers, freezers, waders, although you don't really towade in because the bank positions you right in front of the sockeye. We broke pliers, we borrowed theirs. Marc and Janet are both genuinely invested in helping you have a great time. The condo was just as the pictures represent. It was clean. All the appliances worked great. The oven did decide to not come on for some snap cookies I was obsessed with baking soooo I baked them in Janet's kitchen. HA! She insisted. I relented. Who can resist a cookie. Janet had the repairman in the next am and it was fixed. I liked the cross breeze from the deck screen door, flowing through to the back bedroom window. We were concerned it might be too hot. Not the case. The queen bed was comfortable and I would consider it a bigger than average queen. I rarely book anything besides a king but this worked well. I thought worse case, we will use the fold out sofa. We love the neighborhood area they are in. Not too far out of downtown Soldotna, about a 5 minute drive to Safeway, Fred Meyer a little further. So, we will definitely repeat stay here for another 10 nights in another year or two. The only recommendation I would have is a water filtration system. It took us a couple of days to get used to the slight sulphur smell (well water) you get when you first turn on the faucet. We buy bottled water anyway so it really didn't affect us that much. Bottom line. I know they have a ton of returning guests and we will be one of them."

"This was everything my husband and I were looking for for our mini weekend honeymoon! it was perfect! the attention to detail and the little things that were provided were wonderful! Our own private walk to the water and fire pit to sit by was great! the breakfast and fresh fruit was awesome to start the day out with! We stayed in the moose cabin and had such a relaxing enjoyable stay! recommend HIGHLY to anyone looking for a weekend getaway!"

"Bear Paw was a perfect location. The cabin is in a "neighborhood", but you can not tell you have neighbors. There are great hiking trails, yummy restaurants, and good places for groceries and shopping. Other Alaska tourist towns are only a day trip away. The beautiful Kenaii River is close by. The cabin itself was cozy, clean, and well stocked. The large timber kitchen table drew the family together for card and board games, and meals prepared in the large kitchen. The dorm style loft was the favorite of our three grandsons. Our family is already planning a trip here during the summer months. Fishing poles will be the first things to get packed!"

"We stayed here in July for 4 days and it was perfect. Super clean, lots of room, and a ton of fun. We have friends locally, otherwise I would have booked some fishing with the owner too. The cabin has a country feel but you are just down the road from stores and everything. Super nice owner. We later found out my friends know Lee and they have great respect for him."
