  • Amazing!!

    "We fell in love with this home the moment we walked in!! We had a great time seeing and doing things in and around Ketchikan including lunch with The Governor at Ward Lake one day but the highlight every day was coming back and barbecuing while watching the sun set and all of the activity happening out on the water. One of the most relaxing trips we have ever enjoyed!"

  • Everything and More

    "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!"

  • Best cabin near Seward & Kenai Fjords!

    "My husband and I along with another couple stayed at Russ & Jen's cabin for 3 nights. We had the best time grilling salmon on the deck, fishing in the river in front of the cabin using a rod that Russ lent us, and exploring the gorgeous surroundings. Russ & Jen are truly the best hosts you could ask for -- Russ told us about things we should see and do in the area, and gave us a good feel for what it's like to live a self-sufficient life of fishing & hunting in Alaska. Jen brought us delicious pastries from her bakery The Ranting Raven in downtown Seward. The location is perfect -- just a short 20 minute drive to Seward & Exit Glacier with breathtaking views of the bay the entire way. We must have stopped at least 3 times every time to take pictures. This was by far our favorite cabin during our 10 day Alaskan Adventure! We would definitely stay again!"
