Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway in the heart of the beautiful Kenai Peninsula, look no further.

Our Awesome Log Cabin Retreat is located on a magnificent 2 acre lakefront property! Just off the Sterling Highway nestled in a magnificent setting. It is secluded, yet within easy access from Soldotna, just beyond the city limits (less than a mile from Fred Meyers).

The cabin has been decorated to make you feel warm and cozy, even on a chilly Alaska evening. Full log construction and knotty pine interior give a rustic feel. This wonderful log cabin sleeps 4-6 comfortably, with a downstairs kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living area, and an upstairs bedroom and loft. This lake front setting is simply awesome.

A fully equipped kitchen with dining area provides everything you need for a week on your own. But if cabin fever sets in, there are several quaint restaurants within just a few miles and numerous shops to explore in Soldotna and Kenai.

With the Kenai River just minutes from your front door, you are sure to catch a keeper and have great fish stories to tell back home.

About Jack Ferri or Diane Melton

I am a developer and builder on the Central Coast of California that enjoys the outdoors and LOVE TO FISH!

Jack Ferri or Diane Melton purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Jack Ferri or Diane Melton chose Kenai Peninsula

My brother, best friend, and I built the cabin ourselves back in 2004. I've always enjoyed the natural beauty of Alaska and I wanted a place that I could come up and enjoy - that was close to the world class fishing! Over the years, we've pulled out so many incredible salmon out of the Kenai River it's unbelievable. This last summer, I took my wife and kids up to the cabin and we all had a blast. We're in a secluded spot on the lake, but we're still so close to town that it works out well for everyone.

What makes this cabin unique

On a private lake, but only 1 mile outside of Soldotna and very close to the Kenai River.

Best Cabin in Alaska

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome. It's a real log cabin. We have stayed here twice and both times were great. It's 5 minutes from town and 10 minutes to the Kenai River but still feels like the wilderness. Great views of the lake out front, sunrise, sunset and the occasional moose. Everything you could need for a great trip. Nice deck out front for hanging out, big freezer for fish, BBQ, fire pit. I'll be back!

Best 6 person Fisherman's log cabin

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this wonderful cabin for the past 4 years and have booked another stay this year. It is as represented. We have a group of 6 fisherman. It sleeps 6 and no more. 10 min to hot fishing spot. 3 min. From Fred Meyer for supplies. 3 min from great dining. Very clean and comfortable. Very secluded and private. Sits on a beautiful lake. Being right off the highway is a bonus...quick access. 5 min from local float plane trips. 5 min from town and fish processing. BBQ is available for dinner. Freezer for keeping fish cold. Beautiful log construction gives a true Alaskan feel. This is not a resort but is a fisherman's cabin for sure. We will continue to book this cabin for years to come.

Beatiful Log Cabin experience

  • 5 of 5

Real 2 story log Cabin build with large impressive timber set in wooded area next to a small lake. Great sunrise and sunsets watching Alaskan loon on the water or a moose that watched close by the cabin. Nice and comfy inside with full kitchen to cook your own meal while looking through gorgeous picture window of lake. Good size deck out front and fire ring. Very peaceful area. With the Kenia or Russian river in minutes or just a couple of hours from the ocean as well makes this place central for good times!!! Fishing was fantastic! The whole experience is one well remembered in my mind and look forward to enjoying the place and area once again.

Old world charm with modern conveniences Doug

  • 5 of 5

This was our first fishing trip to Alaska. Flew in to Anchorage from Toronto, and drove just over a couple of hours to the cabin. First thing that struck me was the beauty of the landscape. Probably one of the most enjoyable drives I have ever done. Before I knew it, we arrived at the cabin and what a pleasant surprise. (Or should I say no surprise). A beautiful true log cabin, just off the highway sitting on the shore of a small lake. When I went inside, I knew that I was going to have a great vacation. Beautiful wood trim interior, log steps to the loft, full kitchen with all the utensils and even a flat screen TV. It was very evident that the owners take pride in this property and maintain it accordingly.

5 minute drive to Soldotna for Wal-Mart, groceries, liquor and beer, restaurants etc. A few minutes longer to the spot with parking on the Kenai river for salmon fishing. At the end of the day, we all sat on the back deck with a beer and told our fish stories while watching the sun go down on the lake. It doesn't get any better than that.

If I had to find a negative, it was the gas bbq. It worked, but had seen better days. I mentioned this to the owners and was advised that it would be replaced.

Very nice location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cabin. It is located right on a lake, but very close to Soldotna. Our favorite part was congregating around the large fire pit in the evenings while enjoying a glass of wine or a cold beer while having a direct view of the lake. I did suggest to the owners that they should replace the futon beds in the loft and they said they would be replaced by the 2017 season. Other than that, the cabin was awesome. Would definitely stay here again.
