  • More Than Expected!

    "My family of 6 stayed here for a week from May 24-May 30th. It was amazing. The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen had everything from a crock pot to a waffle maker! This is a great location for day trips to Ancorage, Seward, Kenai, Saldonta and Homer. All of which we visited. The cabin is spotlessly clean and very well kept. The major grocery store is about 15 minutes away in Soldotna. There is a Super Walmart 30 minutes away in Kenai. Be sure to visit Skilak Lake Road! We saw black bears, brown bears, moose and bald eagles. I recommend going early morning or later at night. The owner, David, went above and beyond to assist our family with our vacation rental needs!"

  • Family/Business Trip to Anchorage

    "I recently attended a medical conference in Anchorage, but I did not want to pass up a once in a lifetime opportunity to have a family vacation to Alaska. I certainly did not want to stay in a hotel. I rented Goose Lake Lodge for myself, my wife, my 2 year old daughter, my father and my uncle. We stayed for a week. We had quick access to downtown Anchorage for my work duties, but we easily able to get out of town for site seeing adventures. The house was great and the owner was very accommodating. The views are exceptional, to have such a great mountain/lake view from inside the city limits was wonderful. This is a definite must if you have a large crew staying in Anchorage."

  • Great base for Kenai pennisula fun

    "Our family including 3 children in their 20s enjoyed 4 nights at this cabin this August. The rooms we spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen was functional for making 3 meals a day. It was stocked with many spices and condiments for our use. Internet was great. Steve was very helpful, lighting an outdoor bonfire every night that we had clear weather which was often. Due to flooding, we did not have views of the river because of a gravel berm that was built for water control. That was no problem, we climbed the berm for great views."
