About Gene Montgomery

Our family lives in Mpls Minnesota, my occupation allows me to travel the world for both business and pleasure. My wife and sons really enjoy traveling with me hunting and fishing but we all agree Alaska is our favorite.

Gene Montgomery purchased this house in 2004

Why Gene Montgomery chose Sterling

I have been traveling to Alaska since graduating from College in the mid 80's but never thought we would own a home on the Kenai river. Every time we visit it seems as though it is a new adventure, the fishing the hunting and scenery never lets us down. Most importantly the memories of our family and those who have rented from us are priceless.

What makes this house unique

Visiting our home in Alaska has so many things things to offer. Staying in a custom Log home right on the river is awesome when you consider the options of have dinner, or coffee on the deck just 50 feet from the water not to mention a private fishing ramp with a built in deck and cleaning table. The tough part is what do we do today, fish for Reds, Kings, silvers or take a trip to Homer or Seward to hike glaciers or just fish Halibut.

The property and lodging was awesome

  • 5 of 5

The owners provided attention to every detail relative to amenities, touring and fishing guidance/intelligence, not to mention comfort. The pic's do not do justice to the content, design and layout. Can't wait to stay there again, truly and diamond

Superior and Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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

Alaskan Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have been here twice now and am anxiously planning my next visit. The cabin offers all the luxuries of a hotel but also combines the feel of a northwoods cabin. It is located close enough to the city for supplies, shopping and entertainment however, far enough away to be able to take in the beauty.

Fishing from the ramp - easy and painless.

I have advertised this rental to everyone who wishes to visit Alaska. I have nothing but great things to say about the rental.
