  • Wonderful stay!

    "This is a beautiful B&B and we had a wonderful time there. It is everything as pictured and more! Had a great time fishing in Sand Lake from the paddleboat- the fish were literally jumping in the boat! Ann & Tim are wonderful hosts. They are very accomodating and friendly. It's very convenient to everything in and around Anchorage- close to town and very close to the airport but yet very quiet. It's a great thrill to watch the bush planes landing & taking off right in front of you- especially when you're out on the lake fishing or canoeing. Would recommend to anyone staying in Anchorage and hope to have the opportunity to return ourselves."

  • Beautiful place to stay in the Kenai

    "We really enjoyed this cabin near Sterling for 2 nights in July. It was clean, modern & easy to find. My only complaints are that there was no dishwasher detergent so we had to run to town to buy some. Also, the owner was rather difficult to get a hold of during the booking process. I waited several weeks after the initial booking to get specific directions to the property and didn't get the property entry code until 2 days prior to our stay. Other than that, everything was great!!"

  • Our July home past two years!

    "I can't say enough about how much we loved staying here. The house is very comfortable and has everything we need. We usually have a couple friends come in during the month but plenty of room for family. We have enjoyed the familiarity of being with friends each year. Tom & Lois are readily available without intruding and always have information to offer on what's going on in the area. Whether that means it's BINGO night or that wildlife has been spotted in the area. Our family enjoyed the close proximity to the water and the convenience of not having to fight the crowds. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone that wanted a home away from home!"

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.
