Denali Hideaway - Half a Mile off the Highway, a Million Miles from Ordinary

Bedrooms 2
Space 700 sq ft
Property type apartment


About the property

Denali Hideaway is located a half mile off of the Parks Highway, nestled in the small town of Healy, just 11 miles north of Denali National Park. Built by a talented local carpenter, this breathtaking, beautiful Alaskan home is an excellent retreat after a long day of adventuring in Alaska's Interior.

Our two bedroom, one bathroom residence is attached, yet private, with an entrance of it's own. It comfortably sleeps four with a queen bed and two twin beds, full bath, living room with a mini-fridge, microwave and other small kitchen appliances to make your stay more enjoyable. The home's original owner and master craftsman took precise care in the building of the entire home - including crafting all of the home's ceilings, support beams and intricacies.

Located in Healy, there are a variety of restaurants, a local brewery, a small convenience store, a quaint local coffee shop, an Alaskan lake and many local trails. For more entertainment, restaurants and activities, simply drive 11 miles to just outside the entrance to Denali National Park. This bustling tourist hub, known to locals as "Glitter Gulch", is home to dozens of restaurants, nightly shows, several gift shops as well as your gateway to many more adventurous activities.

About Kami

This home is owned by Dakota and Kami MacIver. They are both lifelong Alaskans & high school sweethearts who settled down in their hometown to raise a family of their own. Our growing family enjoys many of Alaska's abundant resources such as: fishing in south central Alaska, subsistence hunting and gathering berries in the fall, and managing a trapline in the winter. We also enjoy camping, taking out our ATV, and coaching youth hockey in the winter. We are also active members of our local church and enjoy volunteering there too.

Kami purchased this apartment in 2015

Warm and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay and thoroughly enjoyed our night here after driving up through Denali. The home was warm and inviting; everything as described! Didn't want to stay in a hotel and this definitely exceeded all our expectations. Would highly recommend! Three Bears and Totem Inn were great stops in town for food.

Clean, great host.

Great place near Denali

  • 5 of 5

Kami was so great with helping us plan our stay. They made sure to have vehicle plug in available, as well as snow shovel/ice scraper. The place was very clean and cozy. I would definitely stay here again!
