About Marcia Coulson

Coulson Development has built many upscale properties. We saw the opportunity to build a high quality project on the Kenai River that families or groups could enjoy year round.

Marcia Coulson purchased this house in 2008

Why Marcia Coulson chose Cooper Landing

We felt our visits to Alaska were the most exciting trips we had taken. We found there were so few comfortable places for the entire family, including grandparents to enjoy. Our goal was to build lodges where the entire family could feel comfortable and at home.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the beautiful scenery, the eagles and the world class Kenai River fishing. It is surprising how much there is to do in this area.

Riverside Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent an amazing week in this spectacular home on the Kenai River. The property is STUNNING, both inside and out! The river is a short walk from the house, and there are several spots perfect for fishing right from the property. The grounds are meticulously kept, and the home sits back off the highway, giving a sense of remoteness and privacy. The central location in Cooper Landing allows for easy day trips to Seward, Soldotna, and Homer. Inside, the home is breathtaking. From the gourmet kitchen, to the custom stair rails, to the soaring beams, to the steam shower, to the luxury linens - everything is first class! The caretakers, who live onsite, are friendly and helpful. Our fishing guide even picked us up at the door. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for five star accommodations on the Kenai. We definitely hope to stay there again!

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice home! A perfect place to "get away" and enjoy the river from the backyard.

Loved the small town feel, hiking trails, and gorgeous turquoise blue water. We had an amazing time!!

Need more stars...

  • 5 of 5

What's not to love about perfection. A one minute walk to the beautiful Kenai river is a highlight. Spacious deck is a highlight. Great kitchen. Great beds. Away from it all but close enough to rafting, kayaking and fishing. We wouldn't change a thing except departure day. If you want a perfect Kenai Peninsula vacation home, this is the one. Plus, you get the Adventure Guru concierge too.

."Dreamy house in dreamy setting" "Architectural Gem" "7 star Aman private residance."

  • 5 of 5

Awesomeness found. Architectural opulence in Cooper Landing, who knew this kind of property existed in Alaska? It was more like a 7 star private bungalow at the Aman hotel chain or the Four Seasons.

We were met by the caretaker / concierge on site. They helped us park up and get situated in the home, explaining the full AV system, laundry, wifi, and setting up some ideal things to do in the area. (Also they live at the entry to the property in a separate house so it felt very secure and safe.)

It was hard to focus as the house featured some unbelievable scenarios, like flawless walnut floors, hand crafted metal work, steam shower, massive milled timber beams, and stunning views. After the 6 minute walk thru tutorial we started to unpack and noticed extremely high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, top quality / gourmet cook wear, three types of pillows, guide books, historical photos, cut natural stone on the deck and fireplace, really a custom lair with top of the line finishes... a home with no expenses spared... just comfort everywhere. The location is central in Cooper landing and 15 steps to your private river fishing bank with little spaces to cast from. This one is not a "cabin" its not a "house" its more of a art piece that you can relax in.

Gorgeous Property, Great Location

  • 3 of 5

What a treat! This place is beautiful inside and out. And we were spoiled by the caretaker who picked up groceries for us, and delivered them upon our arrival. Such a nice gesture to not have to do on vacation. Easy access from Seward to Soldotna. My only suggestion is an upgrade on the bedding. The sleep number beds and pillows were not comfortable for anyone in our group. But that could just be a preference, but I wanted to share it as our experience. Thanks for everything! We'd love to visit again if we get up that way.

Kenai Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The week we spent here was fantastic. This artfully crafted 'lodge' home is stunning inside and out. We were comfortable and pampered beyond expectation from our first booking questions through our stay. The location was great for us as a central place to return from adventures in Seward, Homer, and Soldotna. But it was tempting to stay 'home' everyday! Outside, we enjoyed the stunning views from the lawn, riverfront and generous porch. Inside, we were cozy, marveled at the beauty of the property, and slept well in amazing beds. When cooking or grilling, we found the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The caretakers, the Larsens, were responsive and helpful, so be sure to contact them! The Coulsens have created a very special place and the Kenai River and Cooper Landing are gems.
