About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to Homestead Guest Cabins, one of Alaska's best-kept secrets, located along the beautiful Glenn Highway National Scenic Byway, and surrounded by the Talkeetna Mountains on the north and the Chugach Mountains on the south. The cabin is nestled in a peaceful quiet valley surrounded by spruce and birch trees, an abundance of wild flowers, and the neighborhood moose that may just pay you a visit!

We are conveniently located an easy 2 hour drive from Anchorage and 1 hour from Palmer, and just minutes away from the spectacular Matanuska Glacier. The area offers many recreational opportunities such as hiking/climbing on the glacier, river rafting, flightseeing, gold panning, hiking the many trails, fossil hunting, fishing, berry picking, 4-wheeling and snowmachining on the nearby trail systems, and amazing photographic opportunities everywhere you look!

Don't let the word 'cabin' scare you off -- it is charming and cozy with all the modern conveniences, new furnishings, and tastefully decorated with artwork from local Alaskans. It has been handcrafted by your hosts, Dan and Sandy Lee, and is awaiting your arrival after a busy day exploring Alaska.

Dan built the cabin from logs that he harvested across the Matanuska River and milled on his sawmill. It has a wonderful warm cozy atmosphere because of the logs, but don't think it is too rustic for you -- it has all the modern conveniences, private bathroom with shower, new queen size bed and furnishings, and is sparkling clean. Dishes, pots & pans, bedding, linens are provided and the kitchen has a full size refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, complimentary tea and coffee, and some basic food supplies/ spices. A second bedroom has been added in 2013 which has a double bed, and the cabin is heated with a TOYO stove which can be adjusted for your personal comfort level.

Your get away cabin is nestled in the woods with ample parking right by your front door and just a short jaunt away from your host's log home. Hiking trails leave almost from your doorstep, and after a short hike you will be high enough to have a fantastic view of the Matanuska Glacier and the surrounding country. There are a few resident moose and if you are lucky you may have a visitor coming through around dusk or early in the morning.

Owner info

About the owner: Your hosts, Dan and Sandy Lee, are longtime Alaskans -- and look forward to helping you enjoy your Alaskan trip. Dan's parents homesteaded this property in the 1950's and Dan grew up living the homestead life -- hunting, trapping, logging, building with logs, learning to improvise and be self sufficient, as well as being a commercial fisherman and a placer gold miner. Sandy spent time working around the state as well as living on a homestead in a remote fly-in area of Alaska, so together they are a wealth of information and have much to share about the many facets of life on the Last Frontier. They continue to enjoy the great Alaskan outdoors, and look forward to meeting you. Be prepared to be met as well by their friendly golden retriever, Kaiah, and throw a stick or two for her.

Why the Owner Chose Glacier View, AK, USA:
Because we have lived right here for years and operated our saw mill, we built several log cabins as long term rentals and eventually they became overnight guest rentals. We enjoy sharing with our guests about our lifestyle here along with our knowledge of local trails, activities, and history of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Imagine your delight when you walk through the door of this hidden gem and experience the warmth and coziness of this uniquely constructed log cabin. Have your coffee on the private deck in the morning sunshine...and perhaps the neighborhood moose will wander by. Take a brisk hike on a trail leaving almost from your door step. Experience peace, quiet, and the best that nature has to offer all at your front door.
