  • Best Lodging in Copper Center

    "Gary & Luann saw to it that we had absolutely everything we needed for a most pleasant stay. The accommodations were simply perfect for our family of five with 3 kids ranging from 7 to 11. The place is clean, comfortable, and has everything one needs while staying in Copper Center. They even have a nice kitchenette stocked with milk, juice, bread, peanut butter, etc. So you can make a quick breakfast before dashing to go fishing in the early AM. My only hesitation in writing this review is that the word is going to be even further out there on how nice this place is and in turn, we may never be able to book here again especially since good quality lodging in Copper Center is very limited."

  • ESPÉRANT Y REVENIR UN JOUR!!! HOPE TO COME AGAIN!!! THE BEST THAT WE EVER RENTED

    "Ce fut le meilleur endroit qu'on ait jamais loué. La vue sur la belle rivière turquoise, la pêche avec nos cuissardes dans cette rivière, voir les poissons sauter à tout moment était un vrai spectacle. Jamais vu ça! Même si on avait emporter nos cannes à pêche, il aurait été possible de prendre celles des propriétaires. Le chalet était parfait pour 2 couples. On avait, sur 2 étages, chacun nos espaces privés, chambre et salle de bain. On ne manquait d'absolument rien tout comme à la maison. C'était propre, paisible et très bien situé. On a pu visiter Homer, Seward et tous les autres petits villages sur ces routes sans être trop longtemps en auto. Il ne faut pas manquer de faire le sentier de la Russian River qui monte jusqu'à l'endroit où on peut apercevoir les saumons qui tentent de remonter la rivière. Si vous êtes chanceux vous pourrez voir des grizzlys qui tentent de prendre les poissons. Nous on n'a pas eu cette chance mais il faut voir quand même. Vous aurez besoin de poivre de Cayenne avec vous. Environ 1 heure de marche. Vous serez enchanté par cette location. En espérant y revenir un jour!!! We appreciate so much this place. Such a nice green river just in front where we could fish. It was a real show to see the fish jump all over the place. The proximity of every place we visited from Seward to Homer. The commodities in the cottage, like home and more. We were two couples and had each our own space being on two levels. Great!!! It was clean and spacy. Confortable beds. Great great place!!!"

  • JUST PERFECT!!!

    "My husband and I stayed for 4 nights Aug. 12-16, 2014 and this was our home away from home. It was so nice to return from a full day of sightseeing or hiking to this quiet little cabin to wind down. The French doors to the back deck looking out on the woods and mountain made it seem that we had a little piece of Alaska all to ourselves. The location was GREAT and only a mile and a half from the main road to stores, excursions, fishing. The lake was a just a short walk away and you could even take a short stroll to one of the major resorts and dine in their restaurant. This was especially nice after a long day. We didn't spend a lot of time at the cabin and mostly used it for evening showers, sleeping and breakfast but it had everything we needed and was very well equipped an well kept. If you plan on cooking, it is best to purchase groceries in Anchorage (if you are coming through there) as the local stores are small and may not have everything you need. Even though we only used the downstairs bedroom, the upstairs loft had another double and twin bed which looked very comfy (but open to living area downstairs). The photos provided are a good representation of the cabin. This cabin and its somewhat central location was a perfect fit for us as it made our trip to the Kenai Peninsula memorable as we ventured out to the ends of the road at Homer, Captain Cooks State Park north of Kenai, Seward and Whittier. Staying in this particular location made these manageable day trips with some hiking of the local trails. Words cannot do justice to the spectacular scenery around every corner. The weather was a little rainy but we came prepared due to the time of year and we didn't let a little rain slow us down. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin and in the area. Thank you for making it available to tourists! We are talking about returning with friends and family and will definitely check to see if the cabin will be available. PS: Don't bring charcoal, it is a gas grill. We had a chuckle when we added our bag to the 2 others left by previous guests."

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.

Home Comforts at Alaska Lodging

When you visit a destination as beautiful as Alaska, you won’t be spending much time in your accommodation facilities. When you do return at the end of a day, it is nice to feel at home in your surroundings. Vacation homes offer the benefit of privacy and having your own lounge to relax in at the end of a busy day. Relax in front of a roaring fireplace with a guidebook and brochures to plan the next day’s activities.
