LARGE, LUXURY CUSTOM HOME WITH HUGE DECK/LAWN WITH FANTASTIC MOUNTAIN AND WILDLIFE REFUGE VIEWS!! PERFECT FOR FAMILY GATHERINGS. KID FRIENDLY!
Welcome! We invite you to stay in our wonderful custom-made post and beam home. Designed and constructed by master builder Gregory Corse, this architecturally stunning home will provide a comfortable and inspiring retreat for your Alaskan adventures. The house was built using centuries old techniques from the German master builders. The 40' vaulted ceiling of the great room boasts incredible hand-hewn beam and joinery work, with a cascading wall of windows overlooking rich green forests and stunning glacial capped mountains.
Situated on 6 acres of beautifully forested land on a bluff overlooking the Kenai Wildlife Refuge, this house is just a THREE-MINUTE drive or 15-minute walk from the world famous Kenai River at Morgan's Landing State Park headquarters where you can fish from the bank. Located in Sterling on the Kenai Peninsula, Soldotna (shops, dining, laundry, movies, etc) is just a 15-minute drive away. Day trips to Homer or Seward for saltwater fishing, glacier fjord tours, art/crafts/artifacts shopping and amazing seafood dining are just 1.5 hours away. Whitewater rafting, hiking, mountain biking and canoeing are all within 20 to 45 minutes away.
From the large Chalet deck enjoy midnight sun BBQs after a hard day's fishing or hiking. You can relax here with friends while watching eagles, hawks, and loons soar in the valley below. Early morning coffee on the deck may also offer views of moose as they wander across the property.
Guests really enjoy the large lawn area which has a lovely fire pit and sitting area. Imagine relaxing by the fire, enjoying the setting sun and endless views of the Kenai National Widlife Refuge and distant Chugach National Forest mountain range.
The Chalet has a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings, and quality bedding/towels, and outdoor gas Weber grill. Guests have access to 2 adult mountain bikes and a variety of children's bikes and outdoor toys.
The Chalet is the upper two-story portion of a duplex. The Hide-A-Way is the bottom unit of the duplex. The Chalet master bedroom (1 queen bed) is on the top floor, with alcove (and additional full size bed) and en suite bath with jetted tub. The master also has it's own private balcony with incredible views. Downstairs in the Chalet are two bedrooms and another full bath. First bedroom has 1 king bed. The other bedroom (great for kids!) has a twin bunk bed, and room for regular or toddler aero bed (supplied) if needed. The living room has a full size pull out couch bed.

This property has been in my family since 1979. Having grown up in Alaska, I understand and appreciate what a unique experience The Great Land can offer and I hope to share that with you. The Chalet is our personal vacation home, and we look forward to coming home each summer from our work overseas. Since this is our personal home, you'll find everything you need.
Alaska is a wonderland of natural beauty and amazing resources, which our family has spent generations protecting through conservation efforts. We welcome you to our home where you too can become a 'Sourdough' and share in this unique experience. The home is available year round. Winter travelers will be rewarded with an incredible show of colorful northern lights and millions of stars in the dark Arctic night. Nearby winter activities include cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and hot beverage drinking! Summer guests will be rewarded with midnight sun, vast and expansive views, solitude, wildlife, and world-class salmon and halibut fishing. COME EXPERIENCE YOUR ALASKAN DREAM VACATION!
