  • Nice Place; great views

    "When we first pulled up to the house I was shocked; the pictures did not include the adjacent areas so the unkempt yards and homes next door took away from this home. It didn't help that the yard needed attention (tall grass and weeds were in abundance). The inside of the cabin was just as cute as the pictures, beds were comfy, but my husband did have trouble with the stairs & the multi levels upstairs and down. The stairs are very steep. I must have read on another site that there was a washer & dryer but this house does not have one available for use. I was also shocked by the limited supply of towels...we were staying for 3 days and were provided 3 towels for the two of us. We either had to share a fresh towel each day or re-use towels. No guest soap is included so don't forget to pack it! On the other hand there are plenty of windows with a great view of glaciers and the Homer Spit. We enjoyed our stay even though we had rain and had to put up with road construction to and from Homer."

  • Kodiak, Alaska is such a special island!

    "Our trip to Kodiak was a family vacation with our adult children. It was a week none of us will ever forget! I wanted my family's first trip to Alaska to be perfect and I knew that the most important part would be the lodging with six of us in our group. This home cost us less than staying in the local hotels and gave us so much more room and flexibality. We wanted to rent a house so that we could come and go on our schedule and cook our own meals. You have this entire house to yourself and it is close to everything! Home is huge, neat, clean and most of all cozy. Having three full bathrooms was also perfect for us. We had everything we needed at our disposal and more. We cooked on the gas grille a few nights and sat out on the large deck. We even had a bald eagle fly over the house! We are an active family and spent everyday exploring the island. One day we chartered fishing trip and came back with halibut, cod and salmon! We spent several days just hiking. So many spots off the road system to enjoy. The beauty of this island is etched in our minds forever. The wildlife was everywhere - we saw bears, deer, eagles, and a variety of sea life. If you plan to visit Kodiak and you want to stay in a great house with everything this is the one! I highly recommend it."

  • A wonderful lodge run by a gracious family in the middle of Alaska!

    "Jennifer and Claude are the hosts in their home in this incredible lodge in the middle (literally) of the Denali Highway. This is a rustic lodge nestled in the middle of nowhere Alaska. Claude led us on hiking tours planned just for us that were exactly what we were looking for. Chrissy cooked tasty family style meals that were plentiful. Hot and cold lunches on the trail. Plenty of snacks. Comfortable rooms and lots of fun socializing with everyone in the common areas of the house. We must come back in the snow!! We loved it! Thank-you for a memorable stay. Sarah and Erik"

  • Beautiful Mountain View

    "We stayed in this condo the whole month of August and loved it. It would easily accommodate 4 people. We already miss seeing the Chugach Mountains first thing in the morning. The condo is roomy and very well equipped. We really appreciated the laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board in the condo. No need to go to a laundromat. The enclosed garage parking is great on a rainy day. We completely agree with all the previous posts and would be happy to stay there again."

Most people will fly to Alaska; the primary airport hub is in Anchorage.

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.

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.
