Comfortable beautiful home in the woods

This historic property is beautifully renovated. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, just a great space for our group to relax. Short, pleasant walk to historic Hope and Seaview Bar. Owner and property manager were friendly and welcoming.

Resurrection Trail Send-off

  • 5 of 5

My Beautiful Wife and I stayed the night in this cabin prior to my send off for a solo hike of Resurrection Pass. We enjoyed the drive from Palmer, Alaska on the Seward Highway and then Geocached down the Hope Highway on this wonderful sunny day. The cabin is very nice with a touch of historic feeling still left in this quaint fully modern and remodled spacious home. There are three bedrooms to choose from, but of course we chose the one that felt more like the original older furnishings. We enjoyed the live band which was playing downtown at the Seaview restaurant and then enjoyed time alone together at the firepit outside the cabin. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.

Fabulous Accomodations

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hirshey Cabin. The beds were fluffy and great to snuggle down in, we kept the windows open and loved hearing the rain on the roof top. The breakfast nook is a great place to start your day and the kitchen supplied all the essentials we needed to cook for our group of 7. Access to town and the trails was a short walk away where we enjoyed a late dinner at the Seaview.

Thanks for a great start to our Alaskan Adventure 2016. Hope is a great place to visit.

Was nice having both cabins so close on a very nice piece of property. But, must say that all mattresses in both cabins were very uncomfortable
