  • Beautiful....

    "After spending several days in a B&B, it was a great pleasure to walk into this beautiful home. The pictures do not it justice, it is far more beautiful than the pictures. The bed was fantastic, and the views were even better. The first day we were there we saw a beautiful bald eagle fly by. We also saw sand hill cranes, we only hear them in TN. I can't say anything bad about this place and will stay there again on our next visit. Happy couple from Tennessee."

  • Kodiak, Alaska is such a special island!

    "Our trip to Kodiak was a family vacation with our adult children. It was a week none of us will ever forget! I wanted my family's first trip to Alaska to be perfect and I knew that the most important part would be the lodging with six of us in our group. This home cost us less than staying in the local hotels and gave us so much more room and flexibality. We wanted to rent a house so that we could come and go on our schedule and cook our own meals. You have this entire house to yourself and it is close to everything! Home is huge, neat, clean and most of all cozy. Having three full bathrooms was also perfect for us. We had everything we needed at our disposal and more. We cooked on the gas grille a few nights and sat out on the large deck. We even had a bald eagle fly over the house! We are an active family and spent everyday exploring the island. One day we chartered fishing trip and came back with halibut, cod and salmon! We spent several days just hiking. So many spots off the road system to enjoy. The beauty of this island is etched in our minds forever. The wildlife was everywhere - we saw bears, deer, eagles, and a variety of sea life. If you plan to visit Kodiak and you want to stay in a great house with everything this is the one! I highly recommend it."

  • Wonderful stay at R&R - both relaxing and exciting

    "My husband and I were first time visitors to Alaska, and Liz has R&R nicely stocked with lots of helpful brochures and books. The apartment was very clean, comfortable for two and had a very homey feel to it. I loved the decor and music boxes, and we agreed we need to return to R&R to do some of the other things the area has to offer. Top that off with the fact that eight nights was very reasonably priced and we would recommend staying here."

  • Beautiful mountain home with epic views!

    "This home was perfect for our girls retreat, we absolutely loved it! The home had huge windows with a gorgeous unimpeded view of the mountains from the great room that included both the kitchen/dining areas and living room. I loved that there was a large area for people to gather and also a lot of bedrooms. Beautiful home and the owner was a joy to work with and extremely easy to contact. Seamless check-in and check out. I would definitely recommend this home for small parties and family getaways. Close to downtown Palmer, the Butte hiking area (wonderful and beautiful hike if you've never done it) and the Reindeer Farm. We had a wonderful stay there and would love to go again."

Most people will fly to Alaska; the primary airport hub is in Anchorage.

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.

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.
