  • Beautiful House and Property but lots of rules!

    "The Alaskans at Cooper Landing is a beautiful property. The friendly and helpful caretakers met us upon arrival and were there to assist us with anything we needed. The Kenai River is spectacular. There are several rules that we were made aware of upon arriving--shoes may not be worn in the house, certain lighting features must be used sparingly, campfires anywhere on property are prohibited, and the most unfortunate rule was that the gorgeous wood fireplace, as listed under the "Amenities" category, is no longer available for guests to use. Definitely a beautiful home and view!"

  • large family with dogs

    "We are a large family from Anchorage. We decided we wanted to go away for a much needed break. We werent sure what to expect from the dry cabins. We had two of the three cabins. As we had our chihuahuas with us had the pet cabin, for other travellers with allergies they allow animals only in this one. It was very comfortable for my husband and I, our dogs and youngest child. However, our 4 older children got the Woody Guthrie cabin, pet free cabin. I was jealous. That cabin was light and airy, so much larger just like a 5 star hotel, the only difference was you had to walk to the bath house. Each cabin has its own shower room assigned the Woody G. Had the bath shower full bathroom assigned, just as you would have at home, everything was immaculately clean. Wendy made sure we were comfortable and made to feel at home. A great hostess and artist. I wish i could post our pictures to show other travellers how tranquil the setting is, it is just 50 yards off the road, inside the cabins you do not hear traffic, you cannot see the road from any of the cabins. We stayed for 2 nights would of happily stayed a week. We got to use the new fire pit for making smores, Wendy kindly started the fire for us. We cooked all our meals on the stove in the smaller pet cabin and we were totally able to. There are places in driving distance to go out to eat, however, that was not what we wanted for our getaway. If you get the chance please try little bear cabins, my words cannot do them justice, we will be returning as soon as we can get away again. Thank you Wendy and Woody for sharing your little peace of heaven with us. A much more relaxed family"

  • Perfect Getaway!

    "My husband and I stayed here to celebrate his birthday and for a getaway from anchorage. It was perfect and just what we needed!! It was very clean, modern, and super cozy and comfortable! We went without kids, but it's also a place the kids would have loved(they say we are taking them next time:)! We didn't take advantage of it, but I loved that the kitchen was well stocked if one wanted to prepare meals. It's in a beautiful location and I loved being close to the busyness, but not right in it. The owners are also fabulous to work with! I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful, cozy, private place to stay! We will definitely be back!!! Thank you!"

  • Quaint and comfortable home

    "This house was so cute. It is decorated with many antiques and unique items. Yet it was very comfortable. We were so happy to have two bathrooms and to have the availability of laundry facilities. Plenty of room was available for two couples and our grandson to have privacy. Wandering in the garden was very relaxing. The flowers and the veggies were all beautiful. The view was beautiful-when the weather was clear! We were able to see down to the spit. The ride up was a little farther that we realized, but the view and accommodations were well worth it!! We would definitely stay there again!!"

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 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.
