Property description

Welcome to Copper River Retreat

The property is located two hundred miles east of Anchorage and 100 miles north of Valdez in the heart of the beautiful Copper River Valley. Copper River Retreat is set in the small community of Copper Center which is accessed by the Glenn and Richardson highways. Copper River Retreat is a special retreat for couples, friends or families. We offer something for those seeking fun and adventure and for those seeking a little rest and relaxation.

The cabin is beautiful, rustic Alaskan and was built by the owner using local materials, which includes the use of burl logs. The cabin is a single story unit for easy access and is located in a picturesque, park like setting surrounded by Aspen and Spruce trees on three acres of private property.

Burl House is a large one bedroom, one bathroom cabin, including a kitchen/dining area with refrigerator and microwave. The living room has handcrafted built ins, two sofas and a loft. The bedroom has a full size bed. Cabin accommodates up to six people.

Copper River Retreat is centrally located near many local activities which include; hiking, wild life viewing, berry picking, photography and fish wheel viewing. There are several guided services also available nearby including; rafting, four wheeling, dog sled rides, jet boat rides and scenic flight seeing.

In season we can offer some of the world’s best salmon fishing and hunting. You can find most anything you need within 10 miles of our property at one of the several gas stations, mini markets, museums, gift shops, and restaurants in the area. Within a short driving distance there is an authentic Alaskan Roadhouse, Wrangle St. Elias National Park headquarter complex and the Trans Alaska Pipeline.

I would love to be your host and share my forty-five years of Alaska experience with you. I will be onsite to accommodate any guest needs, answer questions and provide ideas of how you too can experience Alaska.
