  • Thank you. 5 STARS!!

    "Dale and Jo's is truly a 5 star stay. The house looks like a mini Mansion and the apartment we stayed at was warm and cozy. The bed is very big and simply luxurious. The place is sparkling clean with all amenities you need and even more! There's touch lighting makeup mirrors, bed firmness adjusters, massagers, washing machines.. Where do you get that seriously! We even saw the AURORA which was our main aim. The place is a dream and thanks Dale and Jo for this wonderful experience. The hosts were great and took the extra effort to even wake us for the aurora!"

  • Family trip

    "We had a fantastic stay at Bear Paw. When the kids walked through the door their faces just lit up. We were provided a coffee grinder by Deb, who manages the property, I believe it was her own personal grinder. The beds were comfy and the size was perfect for our party of 10."

  • Home Away From Home

    "Our stay in the Moose Cabin was more than we ever imagined! Thank you. We travel frequently and this is the closest thing to home we've found. Breakfast was always amazing and the special touches were nice. Thanks for your kindness and friendship. We hope to return to this "escape" someday soon. In the mean time, we won't hesitate to recommend your cabins to everyone! Thanks again."

  • comfortable home away from home for the marathon

    "We stayed at Jill's rental for a week. It was a comfortable home away from home while we were in town to run the Mayor's midnight sun marathon. We had 5 adults in our party and found the rental spacious for all of us. The house was conveniently location for the marathon as well as for a central base for day trips from Anchorage. Only negative was short showers to have enough hot water for all 5 of us. We started to stagger times in the shower and that worked out fine. Jill greeted us at the rental and gave us goid recommendations for dinner and places to see. She startex our stay out nicely. I Would stay there again if I find myself in Anchorage again. Thanks Jill."

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.
