About Janet and Marv

We have had the awesome privilege of living in Soldotna for 30 years. After raising 4 children and retiring from the fire department as a paramedic/engineer, we are loving this season in our lives.......... fishing, golfing, and enjoying grandchildren. We also enjoy helping our guests plan their Alaskan adventure!

Janet and Marv purchased this townhome in 1990

Why Janet and Marv chose Kenai Peninsula

Soldotna is a perfect location for your Alaskan adventure! Whether your desire is to fish or hike or kayak or go birding, we are at the center of it all! Just a 3 hour drive from the Anchorage airport, Homer is 70 miles down the road, Seward is 90 miles and only 1 mile from downtown Soldotna to your door!

What makes this townhome unique

Standing on the deck, there is not another building in sight. Just the bird filled trees, the beautiful Kenai River with all of it's abundant fish, and the woods & the tops of the mountains towards Anchorage. Great hiking trails right outside your door or take advantage of the paved bike path that goes right into Soldotna. It is common to see eagles & moose along with other wildlife.

Wished we would have stayed longer.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the view of the Kenia River from the deck and would have fished the river bank if we would have stayed longer. Janet greeted us with a filet of salmon which I cooked on the BQ, it was the best salmon we have ever eaten. Janet made great suggestions on who to call for a guided river fishing trip and a day of touring the Kenai Peninsula. We were provided with cooking utensils and dishes for fixing crab and any gear we might need for keeping dry on the river banks or in the boat. Thank you for helping us make the most of our way to short stay. Hope to come back!

Absolutely the Best!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after a two-week Alaskan vacation that included three wonderful days at this lovely condo.

Almost better than being at home, this property is beautifully decorated and sunny with great views from the balcony. So very comfortable you can't help but relax from the moment you arrive.

Our host, Jan, was very accommodating and available as needed for any special requests.

This was the perfect place to start our Alaskan vacation. Soldatna is a great place to be as a home-base to explore all that the

Kenai Peninsula has to offer.

We can't wait to return again!

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in places all over the world and the Kenai River Retreat is now one of my favourites.

We were in one of the upstairs 1 bedroom apartments which was very comfortable, well equipped, tastefully furnished with a flair for the outdoorsy motif and with a balcony overlooking the Kenai River and passing bald eagles. You can fish for salmon just below on their own private property of the riverbank and they even have some fishing equipment you can use. How cool is that !

Access is easy and in front of the house is a large parking area. Everything is well maintained. The owner/hosts live in a house right beside so you get a level of service, security and help you do not get with absentee landlords.

There is no dining table but instead is a counter with several chairs and a small table on the balcony for al fresco dining.

Nearby in the town there is a good selection of restaurants, shopping and services. We travelled to the Kenai for the scenery and to fish both of which are excellent. Many good local guides are available which is a good idea if you are not familiar with the area or fishing regulations and techniques.

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of Soldatna and the number of stores, supermarkets and services.

Communication with the owners was always timely and pleasant and we even shipped a pair of fishing waders to Janet at her suggestion so we would not have to travel with them.

The only thing that was missing - more time to stay there ! I highly recommend this place.

Outstanding place---- highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

I do a ton of research and this was our third July in a row to the Soldotna area. The first two trips we had okay places to stay, nothing disaster but the Kenai River Retreat was a blast. We thoroughly enjoyed the shore access and all the available equipment. We had our own rods but theirs looked to be in good shape. Nets, coolers, freezers, waders, although you don't really towade in because the bank positions you right in front of the sockeye. We broke pliers, we borrowed theirs. Marc and Janet are both genuinely invested in helping you have a great time. The condo was just as the pictures represent. It was clean. All the appliances worked great. The oven did decide to not come on for some snap cookies I was obsessed with baking soooo I baked them in Janet's kitchen. HA! She insisted. I relented. Who can resist a cookie. Janet had the repairman in the next am and it was fixed. I liked the cross breeze from the deck screen door, flowing through to the back bedroom window. We were concerned it might be too hot. Not the case. The queen bed was comfortable and I would consider it a bigger than average queen. I rarely book anything besides a king but this worked well. I thought worse case, we will use the fold out sofa. We love the neighborhood area they are in. Not too far out of downtown Soldotna, about a 5 minute drive to Safeway, Fred Meyer a little further. So, we will definitely repeat stay here for another 10 nights in another year or two. The only recommendation I would have is a water filtration system. It took us a couple of days to get used to the slight sulphur smell (well water) you get when you first turn on the faucet. We buy bottled water anyway so it really didn't affect us that much. Bottom line. I know they have a ton of returning guests and we will be one of them.
