  • Thank you. 5 STARS!!

    "Dale and Jo's is truly a 5 star stay. The house looks like a mini Mansion and the apartment we stayed at was warm and cozy. The bed is very big and simply luxurious. The place is sparkling clean with all amenities you need and even more! There's touch lighting makeup mirrors, bed firmness adjusters, massagers, washing machines.. Where do you get that seriously! We even saw the AURORA which was our main aim. The place is a dream and thanks Dale and Jo for this wonderful experience. The hosts were great and took the extra effort to even wake us for the aurora!"

  • Superior and Fantastic

    "10 of us stayed here for a week. It as an amazing experience fishing out the back door! We traveled into town for fishing trips and down to Homer 3 times (about 2hours each way) for some offshore Halibut. Each man bought back 70lbs of filets thats right 700lbs of fish!!!! The sad thing is we missed the Salmon run by a week.. but the accomodations more than made up for it. Great touches and details in the house this will be my only choice next time. My son said his favorite memories were laughing with the men on the river and catching his first Halibut. priceless Thanks Mark from SC"

  • ESPÉRANT Y REVENIR UN JOUR!!! HOPE TO COME AGAIN!!! THE BEST THAT WE EVER RENTED

    "Ce fut le meilleur endroit qu'on ait jamais loué. La vue sur la belle rivière turquoise, la pêche avec nos cuissardes dans cette rivière, voir les poissons sauter à tout moment était un vrai spectacle. Jamais vu ça! Même si on avait emporter nos cannes à pêche, il aurait été possible de prendre celles des propriétaires. Le chalet était parfait pour 2 couples. On avait, sur 2 étages, chacun nos espaces privés, chambre et salle de bain. On ne manquait d'absolument rien tout comme à la maison. C'était propre, paisible et très bien situé. On a pu visiter Homer, Seward et tous les autres petits villages sur ces routes sans être trop longtemps en auto. Il ne faut pas manquer de faire le sentier de la Russian River qui monte jusqu'à l'endroit où on peut apercevoir les saumons qui tentent de remonter la rivière. Si vous êtes chanceux vous pourrez voir des grizzlys qui tentent de prendre les poissons. Nous on n'a pas eu cette chance mais il faut voir quand même. Vous aurez besoin de poivre de Cayenne avec vous. Environ 1 heure de marche. Vous serez enchanté par cette location. En espérant y revenir un jour!!! We appreciate so much this place. Such a nice green river just in front where we could fish. It was a real show to see the fish jump all over the place. The proximity of every place we visited from Seward to Homer. The commodities in the cottage, like home and more. We were two couples and had each our own space being on two levels. Great!!! It was clean and spacy. Confortable beds. Great great place!!!"

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.
