  • Very clean, comfortable, and relaxing.

    "I have rented many places through VRBO and other rental sites/agencies...this was by far the cleanest and most well-planned. From the reservation packet to touches like q-tips in a pretty box, I felt like I knew what to expect and like my needs were anticipated. I brought my dog with me, which was a rental first for me and I appreciated that I felt like the house could stand up to a little "pet abuse" thanks to the strong carpet and easily cleaned entry way. (But if you don't have pets, don't think this seems like an overrun pet rental. I would never guess that it was pet friendly if I booked it without my dog due to its cleanliness and good condition.) Plus, the neighborhood dogs made my dog feel very welcome and when she ran off once, the neighbors themselves had no problem with the extra porch guest they had. I think they thought I was funny for worrying that she was bothering them. I loved sitting on the porch and watching the blue jays hassle the smaller birds, the squirrels making the trees their playgrounds, and the hummingbirds creating their magic. The kitchen was easy to cook in and clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the location of the cabin was convenient. Add in how easy the owners made it to book (and later adjust) the reservation, and I would not hesitate to book again or to encourage my friends and family to do the same. I have visited Seward many times and have two general suggestions: Le Barn Appetit for amazing crepes and an entertaining host, and the Sealife Center."

  • Great option for staying in Kodiak

    "I traveled to Kodiak for a two day business trip. While I was out of the house for most of the trip, it was much nicer than staying in a hotel and I could relax and enjoy the views when I got back to my room. Great experience"

  • Amazing place - good price

    "This place blew me away. Every detail appears thought out from the huge stacks of tourist guides, to the phenomenal locally roasted coffee, to the extra towels by the door to the hot tub and even the spare emergency rain jackets. Everything is sparkling clean, very well maintained, well thought out, and then there is the view.... I actually can't describe the view, you can see the picture, but that is a bit like having someone tell you what chocolate tastes like. Try this place out just for the view. Except for the one rainy night, we watched gorgeous sunsets reflected onto the bay, the mountains, and the glaciers from the patio. I highly recommend this place to anyone!!!!"

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.

Relax in front of a roaring fireplace with a guidebook and brochures to plan the next day’s activities.
