  • Great cabin

    "This cabin is really beautiful. It is very large and has everything you could need. The hot tub is great though only fits about 4 people. The cabin does not have a view of the bay, but a close spot in the yard has an excellent view of the bay and mountains. The property is really nice for taking walks. Kitchen had everything we needed for a weekend of cooking. The beds were comfortable. The radiant floor heating is great and the fireplaces make for cozy evenings. The deck is huge and grill nice."

  • Our Rockin' Alaskan Adventure!

    "We had the BEST time at Canoe Lake Chalet! With this being my first time using VRBO I was really hesitant with any property. Geri quickly broke me of my hesitation! The next morning after I requested more info she called me and we talked about every single detail of how the process would work. We had a group of 10 adults that need our space and we found it in this awesome chalet. The back porch faces north directly towards Hatcher Pass right over a beautiful lake. It truly feels like you have your own little piece of heaven. When we were there pretty much everything was frozen but we could tell Geri and her husband have everything you need to have fun on the lake including paddle boats! Lots of bicycles are there too! We stayed in the cabin for a week and a couple of the days we just took off on foot from the cabin and found miles upon miles of hiking trails practically at your front door. Perhaps our greatest adventure was when Geri set us up with the good people at Talkeetna Air Taxi and Denali Zip Lining for a group scenic flight where we landed on a glacier and took a snowmobile to a zip lining course that really was an experience! It's hard to say what our favorite part of the chalet was but since all 10 of us are on a national tour of a musical, Million Dollar Quartet (look us up), we go months without a kitchen. Let me tell you, this place has EVERYTHING you need!! Cooking for 2 is hard enough...10 is even more of a challenge, as you can expect! You'll be located soooooo close to Palmer and Wasilla you will not have to go far to get any food. We ate ALL of our meals but one at the property :) I recommend this property for anybody and am already ready to plan my next trip!"

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.
