Not only was the cabin wonderful, very clean, stocked with everything you could possibly need....the owner was onsite during our stay and provided the most amazing bookings for fishing adventures, gave us onsite lessons for fishing the river which is just steps from the cabin, and made sure we had all we needed to attempt to catch the "BIG ONE". The owner's family was a delight to be with and we look forward to being in Alaska again.

Kenai Cabins

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. Few things beat the Kenai Peninsula in summer affectionately know as Alaska's playground. These cabins are in Sterling which is centrally located on the Peninsula, just 20 minutes to Soldotna, about 1 1/2 hrs to Homer or Seward for ocean fishing, wildlife cruises & great sights along the way. All the cabins are excellently maintained, each offering their unique charm. We have stayed may times

over the past 10 years or so enjoying every visit more each time. To me Alaska is a friendly place and the hosts at Kenai River Cabins at Sterling are some of the best by far.

Exceptional value, great views and fishing is outstanding. You will enjoy your stay.

ana's retreat cabin

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here during the sockeye season. The cabin was first rate, fully furnished with individual beds for everyone and two complete bathrooms. Richard and Ana were great hosts and very accomodating. The fishing was great and Richard helped to give us correct techniques to use and which spots were the best ones. It was bank fishing so you did not have to get in the water nor did you have to fish from a platform. There was a cleaning station at the river so you could take care of your fish on the spot. They had a freezer for our use and even bought another because we caught so many fish. These are good people and hopefully we will get to enjoy them again in the future.

The Kenai river fishing is perhaps most famous for its giant king (chinook) salmon and world class rainbow trout. However, many anglers target the Kenai river's huge run of red (sockeye) salmon which most years exceed over 1 million fish entering the river over about a 4 week period. Fishing for other species such as silver (coho) salmon, pink (humpy) salmon and dolly varden is also available in the Kenai river as well as in other nearby rivers such as the Kasilof river and Quartz Creek. We are also only a short drive from saltwater, and halibut fishing charters are easily arranged out of Seward or Homer. We can customize fishing and lodging packages to fit your needs.
