  • Great family vacation spot!

    "We rented this chalet and the adjoining chalet (owned by the same owners) for a family vacation with my extended family (ages 2 to 82). It was perfect! The house was beautiful, clean, well-maintained, and well-stocked. Had everything we needed. The view was fabulous - even better than the photos online. I hope we get to come back here again to spend some time again some day."

  • Like staying in a ski house

    "If you stay in VRBO properties you know how much more fun and comfortable they can be. That is really true with this cozy house, where instead of views if the slopes you are next to a small air strip with planes parked below and the Cook Inlet in the distance. Out back, the dining view is to the local mountain range's O'Malley Peak and Flat Too. The furnishings are very relaxed and reflect the pilot owner's love of all things about flight! Don't stay in a Hotel or condo when you can stay here. And by the way if you come in the summer it's a short drive or brisk walk to Anchorage GC."

  • What an awesome place!!!

    "This cabin is by far one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The management has thought of everything you could possibly need. We could not come up with anything we could possibly want for that they did not provide. The inside is furnished and decorated beautifully, and the views are fantastic!! Even though the weather kept us from going fishing in the bay, we had a great time just hanging out, cooking, eating, drinking and playing games. We are already planning to come back next year and stay longer. You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay here."

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.
