Recent Alaska reviews

  • Rustic Alaskan beauty

    "The Kilcher Homestead cabin was the answer to what we were looking for, wildlife, glaciers, peace and quiet, fun and laughs. We had beach fires everyday and ended up cooking our dinners over an open flame nightly. The cabin was adorable and met our needs totally. The wood burning, old but beautiful, worked for breakfasts and the percolator coffee was fun and brought back memories of my childhood. Everything was there that we needed and we just brought what food and beverage we thought we would want. The atv ride to the cabin was a great intro to a great place, thanks for having us. My wife, my son and I loved our stay."

  • Great home base for exploring the area!

    "Laura has done an amazing job with Girdwood Goodnight! No detail was overlooked in creating this cozy, comfortable, clean home away from home. It's located in a residential neighborhood which made a great home base to explore all the area has to offer. While this isn't a bed and breakfast, Laura left us enough goodies to make our own breakfast on our own schedule. We actually preferred that. The weather wasn't cooperative when we were in the area and several of our planned activities were canceled. We emailed Laura and she quickly replied with great rainy day suggestions."

  • Fish On Cabin was a perfect place for our stay on the Kenai Peninsula

    "Fish On Cabin is located halfway between Homer and Seward, near Sterling. The cabin is so clean and homey. We loved all the Alaskan decorations and funny quotes. We did a fly in salmon trip that was suggested to us by the owner and it was awesome. We were able to clean our own salmon, vacuum pack it and freeze it, right at the cabin. We cooked some of the salmon we caught on the grill for supper! Took quite a few trips into Soldotna for groceries and fish freezer boxes. Did not take very long to get there at all. We went halibut fishing and vacuum packed and froze that also. We went to Seward and took a lunch cruise to an island with a lodge. They were all great things to do and it was a wonderful place to stay! We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone who loves the outdoors, wildlife and especially fishing! Thanks, Again!"

  • Great Alaskan home

    "We enjoyed our stay in this home. The setting makes you feel like you are in the wild but it has all the amenities you could ask for. The location is great for exploring the Chugach area and the Kenai peninsula. Then at night, we would come back and relax by the fire or play a game of pool. The kitchen was very well stocked. Bedrooms and bathroom are simple but clean and comfortable. The owners were very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend this home"

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.

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.

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.
