  • Wonderful Stay

    "Our family of four felt instantly at home in this beautiful rental. The views of the river are amazing and the living room is open and spacious. The heated garage, full kitchen, and washing machine made our stay extra convenient. Walter went above and beyond to make us feel welcome - even bringing sleds for the kids to enjoy the Ice Art Festival. We can't wait to return."

  • Perfect

    "My wife and I spent the last 5 days of our honeymoon in Fairbanks and stayed in the Sourdough Cabin at Riverbend. The cabin was perfect. Very warm, private, and away from the city which made good viewing of the Northern Lights right out the front of the cabin. The owners Debi and Bruce are very friendly and always happy to give advice on things to do in the area. This was the perfect end to our trip. Thank you Debi and Bruce. We hope to stay with you again."

  • Beautifully appointed, great location!

    "Our family of five loved staying in the "Bunk House" for a weeklong stay in Cooper Landing. The pictures simply don't do the house justice...it's soooooo much nicer in person! :-) As others have stated, the beds are VERY comfortable, and the kitchen is a dream to cook in. We grilled our salmon on the great porch with views of the Kenai River running past. The bathrooms were very spacious, although it might be easy to miss the 1st floor bathroom (take note!). Of course, we also loved having the washer/dryer to use (huge capacity), and really enjoyed the collection of DVDs and CDs (great taste!). A few notes: the beds are all twins, except for one room with a double and twin. Also: there is NO wifi, and the cell service coverage is dismal (I couldn't get any internet connection from my phone, although I could text and call). We ended up driving up to the Princess Lodge (5 mins away) each day for about an hour to use their free wifi to check on email, Facebook, etc. and it was nice to be internet-free anyway!!!! ;-) Thanks to the very sweet and helpful Danette and Adam, our caretakers, who were awesome, too. (Adam is a fishing guide and you can book with him, or he will help you arrange for a tour with the best guides in town.)"

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.
