  • Amazing Family Retreat

    "My family and I needed to find a place that would sleep 14? Boy did we find that at this location. Can I say HUGE! It was endless. Huge windows, nice long bar and dining room table. Beautiful kitchen. Lots of cooking utensils, pots, and pans. Enough room for us all to not step on each others toes. "A bit of the all right.", as my dad would say. Hoping to rent it again in the near future."

  • Lots to Do, even if You Don't Fish!

    "We stayed 4 nights at this rustic, spacious, well-stocked cabin on the Moose River. We loved the quiet location, yet still convenient to the owner's house nearby. The cabin has a rustic unfinished wood interior with decor similar to a hunting/fishing lodge with caribou and moose antlers. There is loads of storage space! And a state of the art super large washer and dryer are provided. I could almost fit two normal loads of wash in that one washing machine! The kitchen is so well stocked, even with lots of rolls of paper towels, and both regular and decaf coffee. We prepared all our breakfasts, packed all our lunches each day, and made all our dinners at the cabin. A huge Fred Myers grocery/super store is 13 miles away. I must say there is a slightly odd smell (due to the well water) to the water in the bathroom sink, shower, and kitchen sink. But there is a special faucet in the kitchen with good smelling filtered water. The bathroom is really spacious with a full tub/shower, loads of clean towels, and toiletries. We never did use the hot tub, so cannot tell about our experience with that. Every day we would leave for a different outing: Day One we hiked Russian River Falls Trail to see the spawning salmon and then visited Kenai (where we saw 3 caribou along the Bridge Access Road) and Soldotna (really enjoyed seeing the world record size King salmon in the Soldotna Visitor's Center). Day Two we spent all day driving to Homer, stopping at sights along the way. And Day Three we drove the Skilak Lake Road, hiked the Hideout Trail with its spectacular views of the Kenai River, Skilak Lake, and the surrounding mountains, and then hiked the Lower (East) Kenai River Trail to see the Kenai River Canyon. And every night, back at our cabin, we had a great night's sleep with the windows wide open. Loved our stay on the Moose River!"

  • Excellent!

    "Our stay was wonderful. The pictures do not do it justice, the view is amazing overlooking the Bay and the house is adorable. There was locally made soap left out for us and freshly ground coffee for the morning. The bed was very comfortable and the host even arranged for a pack and play for our son to sleep in. The location is really perfect, quiet, but close to everything and above the tsumani zone:) Loads of information left for us and great recommendations provided via email. We were really sad to leave and hope to make it back one day!!!"

  • WONDERFUL APARTMENT

    "We recently had a relaxing stay in this lovely apartment. Dale and Jo provided everything we needed including very complete and helpful hints and ideas for things to do and see in the area along with a peaceful environment and amazing views of the Alaska Range and Mt. McKinley. The location was very convenient to downtown Fairbanks, the University of Alaska and to the airport. We highly recommend this accommodation to anyone who needs a respite from the city life."

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.

Home Comforts at Alaska Lodging

When you visit a destination as beautiful as Alaska, you won’t be spending much time in your accommodation facilities. When you do return at the end of a day, it is nice to feel at home in your surroundings. Vacation homes offer the benefit of privacy and having your own lounge to relax in at the end of a busy day. Relax in front of a roaring fireplace with a guidebook and brochures to plan the next day’s activities.
