About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6-7

Rose Ridge Chalet sits on a south facing ridge near Palmer, Alaska. The full wall of windows allows a panoramic view of several mountains including Lazy Mountain, Pioneer Peak and most of the Chugach Range. Knik Glacier is nestled at the end of the valley. Surrounded by woods, wildlife to watch for include: moose, birds, squirrels, and maybe an occasional fox or black bear.

The chalet is two-story, with a large bedroom with one King, one Queen bed, a Klick Klack couch and a bath on the second level. The main level features another bedroom with one queen, one bath, and living/dining area. The full kitchen is stocked with all the items needed to cook your own meals if desired (except food). Coffee/tea and condiments stocked at the beginning of your stay. There is a washer/dryer in main level bath. For your enjoyment, there are movies and games. A patio outside with a BBQ grill is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our long summer evenings. This is a very peaceful location.
