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."

  • Paradise Indeed

    "We stayed at Paradise Cove House for a week with another couple. The house was perfect for two couples with completely separate bedrooms and bathrooms. Besides the amazing view, the house had everything to offer: many, many books, many small appliances (slow cooker, mixer, etc.), plenty of dishes/glasses/utensils. Everything was spotless. There were plenty of towels and nice linens on the beds. But did I mention the view???? We loved Haines and the area and enjoyed getting to know Cecily and Mark. A five star trip in a five star location - perfect for our first trip to Alaska."

  • Near Denali

    "Lisa's home was a great base for exploring Denali National Park. She is a wealth of info on the park itself. The rental is set up with everything we needed. Her sled dogs, Bronte and Vincent, met us every morning and evening when we came home. We even had sourdough waffles our last morning made with her starter and waffle maker. Great experience."

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.
