Recent Alaska reviews

  • Private and relaxing

    "Four of us stayed at Laughing Raven in early August '14 for four nights. Nice, clean log home with lots of windows located on a large, private lot with no neighbors in sight. Large, functional kitchen, two large living areas, and a huge wrap-around deck with a hot tub. Outstanding view of Cook Inlet and K-bay from the bluff just uphill from the house. We brought our boat down and had plenty of room to turnaround and store the trailer in the driveway. The owner (Mo) is very professional and a pleasure to do business with. We will stay again in the future."

  • Amazing!!

    "We fell in love with this home the moment we walked in!! We had a great time seeing and doing things in and around Ketchikan including lunch with The Governor at Ward Lake one day but the highlight every day was coming back and barbecuing while watching the sun set and all of the activity happening out on the water. One of the most relaxing trips we have ever enjoyed!"

  • Perfect Home Base for Homer

    "We loved the architecture and detail in this home - views from every window. This was a very comfortable and quiet base for us. We liked the private entrance and sun deck off the main level. We had a car but were able to walk to the old part of town, the beach, shopping, and an awesome kids' park. The house is 2-bedroom but very spacious. And it worked so well for kids with a big soaking tub and safety gates on the stairs. Also a great place to get some work done - wifi and comfortable desks on both levels. We especially appreciated the opportunity to get some laundry done on our own time. Our hosts were so helpful and patient with us, too! Thank you for a beautiful getaway."

  • Five Stars!

    "Perfect is the word that best describes our recent stay at Eagle Head Cabins! The owners Ron and Denise are consummate hosts and have considered every detail that will make your stay there perfect. We felt like family and consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to stay with them and get to know them. The grounds are beautiful and all of the cabins are immaculate, secure, decorated with local art, have WiFi, DVD and Direct TV. The kitchens have all of the essentials, along with a private BBQ to prepare real meals. Laundry facility is also provided. Fishing platforms are provided for guests to enjoy carefree fishing. Top quality, pre-rigged gear is also provided for those that don’t have equipment. Ron’s knowledge of the local conditions really helps anglers dial in where to fish. A fish cleaning station is provided, complete with a commercial vacuum packing machine and freezer space. Vacuum bags are provided without charge. This convenience really helped because we didn’t have to drive to Soldotna to have our fish processed each day. There was even a digital scale to weigh the boxes of fish we shipped back home. Almost forgot, unlimited ice is provided free of charge! While we concentrated our efforts on fishing, it wouldn’t matter what your vacation entailed… wildlife viewing, sight seeing, complete and total relaxation… Eagle Head Cabins fits the bill. So, here is the bottom line. Eagle Head Cabins may be a few dollars more than the competition. However, the dollars quickly add up when you consider the conveniences like laundry, free ice and fish processing. Finally, if you’re looking for a quality experience in serenely beautiful surroundings, look no further - Eagle Head Cabins are perfect! We plan to stay with Ron and Denise again. In fact, we will be back next year and hopefully for many years to come. Thanks Ron, Denise, Rocky and Max for making our visit to the Kenai the best ever! Eagle Head Cabins deserves a Five Star Rating. Mahalo and Aloha, Tom and Laura"

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.

In both summer and winter, there are a host of great activities that can keep you occupied on your travels.

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.
