Inside, the living space has an abundance of windows that provide a "cabin in the woods" feel. The windows let the outdoors in, showing off the spruce, hemlock, and birch trees surrounding the property. This serene space is complete with solid hardwood floors, a plush couch, and flat-screen Smart TV.
Adjacent to the cozy living room is the modern, fully equipped kitchen that makes cooking easy with all of the amenities of home. For mealtime, head to the large, rustic dining room table that easily enables conversation among family and friends.
The upper master bedroom has a custom log, queen-sized bed and boasts earthy French doors that allow more light to pour in, providing an airy and breezy ambiance. The second bedroom has tailor-made, twin-sized bunks that can sleep kids or adults in total comfort. Both bedrooms have room-darkening shades that provide restful slumbers under the midnight sun. Additional sleeping can be found on the comfy queen bed in the loft.
When you're in need of fresh air, make your way to the outdoor fire pit, which will quickly become your favorite gathering place to enjoy the great outdoors during your visit to the ‘Moonshine Cabin.'
If you're looking for gourmet, Alaskan cuisine, head to Titos Discovery Cafe or Bowmans Bear Creek Lodge. Afterwards, stroll around the town to the shops which have unique Alaskan artwork, handicrafts, and other gifts to purchase as a reminder of your special visit.
When you're not strolling around the scenic downtown of Hope, Alaska, head over to Chugach Outdoor Center just 15 minutes down the road from the cabin for all of your paddling needs! Go whitewater rafting down Six Mile Creek, sea kayaking, or adventuring around on jet skis! Most of Alaska is only accessible by boats or planes, so if you truly want to see the Alaskan wilderness, hop on any one of these tours for a bird's eye view!
"Moonshine Cabin" is just a little over an hour from Seward, "the port to adventure." Here, you will find picturesque views of the water, mountains, and forest that surround this town! Along with the outdoor activities, you’ll also love exploring the delicious dining options, shopping, and nightlife!
Kenjai Fords National Park is sure to bewitch you with its majestic Harding Ice Field, featuring numerous glaciers pouring down to create fjords. The park’s #1 tourist attraction is Exit Glacier and is accessible by road!
*Please note that starting in the middle of September there are limited services and some restaurants close for the winter*

What a fabulous hideaway!the cabin is lovely, clean, well-appointed! The living area is spacious, the beds are comfy, Surrounded by trees with a hammock for lounging and a firepit for roasting marshmallows, we had such a nice time we stayed an extra day.
It is a great area to retreat from the business of life. Located in a central location for hiking/skiing/rafting etc...
Tom was very helpful and everything was perfect.
Wonderful place with great host!
We had a great stay with our family of 6. The property is beautiful and the cabin is fantastic- our kids were huge fans of the bunk beds! We had a bit of a snow storm (10+ inches!) on the night we arrived and lost power the next morning for a few hours. Tom took excellent care of us, getting us set up with a generator, fresh water and updates on when to expect the power to come back on.
Tom took my husband for a tour of Hope and pointed out some things we might enjoy on our stay. You can tell that Tom has a genuine love for Hope, the Moonshine Cabin, and the guests that come to visit! We'll definitely be back this summer!
Cabin was in impeccable condition when we arrived. Beautiful and serene setting. Very well appointed. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Quiet, clean and enjoyable cabin in the woods!
We had a great time in Hope staying at Tom's cabin! It was a very relaxing time and enjoyable stay.
Impressive cozy cabin in the woods
Gorgeous well appointed & clean cabin. Tom was a great host & even stopped by to show us around. It was the perfect spot to unwind with friends & family after a busy weekend. The campfire & hammock were a big hit! Would HIGHLY recommend and plan on returning soon!
