About Janet and Marv
We have had the awesome privilege of living in Soldotna for over 35 years. After raising 4 wonderful children and retiring from the fire department as a paramedic/engineer, we are loving this season in our lives ....... Enjoying our grandchildren, fishing, golfing and traveling. We also enjoy helping our guests plan their Alaskan vacations!
Janet and Marv purchased this Studio in 1990
Why Janet and Marv chose Soldotna
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 Studio unique
Standing on your 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 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.

Perfect for us
We loved this place. The location was awesome. Close to town but seemed to be secluded. Good spots for fishing but unfortunately, no fish for us. In-between runs. Very nice place and amenities. Great communication with owner. We want to come back for sure.
Great location and views
The location is perfect for getting around the area, yet it’s still quiet. The bed is super comfy and the views are beautiful! The owners were always quick to respond to any questions and overall we enjoyed our stay.
Great place to stay.
Awesome views with great hosts!
I wish we were able to stay more then one night. The lodging has all the amenities you would need. The rooms were very clean and organized. We sat by the river on the property and watched the moose drink from the river on the opposite bank. It was perfection.
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights while in Alaska to do some Salmon fishing.
We were so happy with our choice to stay here from the start. Janet could not have been more welcoming, helpful and delightful. When she found out we were going on a fishing charter and the weather was going to be bad, she hunted down rain gear and warmer clothes for us immediately. We were so happy to have such a wonderful host. And boy was I glad for the warmer clothes to borrow!
The location itself is gorgeous. You can see the Kenai River from inside the studio and the view is great. The kitchen has everything you need. My husband and I were able to enjoy our first trout ever that I grilled on the propane grill we had right outside our door. The studio was warm and comfortable. Perfect for one or a couple.
We loved our time at the Kenai River Retreat. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. If you’re visiting Soldotna, don’t hestitate to stay here, you’ll really enjoy it.
Wow! You should be a travel writer!! Such kind words and everything we strive for as hosts! You two were lovely guests, and thank YOU for leaving everything in such great shape! We hope that you can return one day to witness the Northern Lights!
