Why Jaci or Mike chose Sterling
Mike and Jaci fell in love with the Moose River area, then decided to put down roots. Mike hand built the chalet from the ground up and wanted to extend true Alaskan hospitality by turning it into a Vacation Rental, since we moved into the new house next door. The beauty of the Moose River with all the great birding and wildlife is spectacular year round.

Great Cozy Getaway
We truly enjoyed our stay here. The space was clean and cozy. It was definitely a classic Alaskan style location which was great for us. There were plenty of bedding and towels, in the hot tub was super relaxing.
Nice place, great hot tub
Nice comfortable place to stay. The hot tub was amazing.
Owners were very friendly. Property was exactly as described. Off the beaten path so to speak. We enjoyed our stay very much!
We enjoyed our stay at Mike and Jaci’s cabin. It was well stocked and had everything (more than everything) we needed. Stop at the visitors center in Soldotna to see the salmon fishing going on at the boardwalk. We enjoyed our day trip to Homer and waked the beach on the spit. We hiked near Skilak lake and saw some amazing views. The cabin has a grill for use and a place to clean your fish if you catch some. Very good location for fishing, hiking, and sightseeing.
This chalet is everything as advertised – a very nice home base!
Jaci met us as we arrived after a long day of travel. She gave us the tour and showed us around. This place has all the amenities you need in a home away from home. Jaci also told us to help ourselves to the greenhouse and greens she had growing. So nice to have fresh salad while on vacation! Enjoyed sitting in the hot tub after a long day – and the days are long in July ;) We also enjoyed using the canoe and kayak for a leisurely paddle on the river. We enjoyed our stay with Moose River Mike and Jaci - and loved all of the stories! We miss Moby and Good dog Dexter.
Homely property with lots of charm
We really loved this property. Owners, were helpful and made our stay very memorable. The carpentry and wood craft work of the cabin was a real joy to see. Reading stories of the owners adventures in Alaska wilderness added to the sense of the remote location and seeing the seaplane go off each day. We loved watching the birds around the lake and forest. A great stay overall.
The location was quiet yet 5 minutes from Stirling town amenities.
