  • Great house!

    "I loved this vacation house. It truly looks like the pictures. We rented the larger boat and had a blast. They took my husband and boys fishing . They caught halibut and crab. One morning on the boat we saw an orca whale and it's baby. Hiking was great on ketchikan. We are come back again. Would love to live there."

  • Comfortable and Cozy!

    "Cottonwood Corner guest house was a wonderful home base for our extended family of seven. Very comfortable in every way and we enjoyed sitting by the fire in the evenings. The children played in the large yard and we all enjoyed the birds, flowers and fresh veggies from the garden boxes. Of course, Tillie was a bonus! Seward is great for so many outdoor activities. We did some great hikes, fishing and a day cruise. It was nice to come "home" after a busy day to cook and relax. Thank you for a happy and memorable stay!"

  • A Little Slice of Heaven

    "From the moment we drove down into the driveway of this gorgeous place, we knew we were in for the time of lives. Nancy met us with a smile and an aura of positivity. She showed us around while the kid explored. The cabin is beautifully built. It is clean and well stocked. We had 7 members in our party (three kids 7, 5, 3) and PLENTY of room for activities inside and out. We brought cross country skis, snow shoes, sleds, and snow machines and used every bit of the property and surrounding lake area. We saw thousands of stars at night around the fire pit, Denali during the day, and miles of adventure. We certainly hope to make this a family tradition for many Spring Breaks to come. We would also LOVE to see it in the summer. Thank you so very much Tom, for having us at your little slice of Heaven."

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.
