Sterling is conveniently located just 7 miles outside of Soldotna (to the east on the Sterling Highway) and only a 2.5 hour drive from Anchorage. You can be in Homer or Seward in about 1.5 hours, so day trips for saltwater fishing or fjord viewing are easy. The world famous Kenai River is just a THREE MINUTE drive from our property, or a 15 minute walk on a paved road. You will not find better or BIGGER salmon anywhere else in the world. The Kenai Peninsula is 'Alaska's Playground!' You can be in Cooper Landing in 45 minutes for fun rafting trips down the Kenai River, or visit one of the many attractions around the Soldotna area like the Homesteader's Museum, pan for gold, beachcomb, hike the beautiful trails or canoe on the Moose River. Every member of the family can have a wonderful adventure! This rental is located next to the Chalet and Hide-A-Way at Alaska MountainView Cabins. All three rentals can accommodate a group of 18: PERFECT for large family gatherings!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Raised in Alaska, this property was our family homestead. My step-father, a master carpenter, built all of the houses on the property and my parents ran Alaska MountainView Cabins as a successful tourism business for over 15 years. They loved to share this beautiful property with new friends from around the world. We took over the property in 2011. Because I work overseas in international conservation and development, we return every year for a few months to enjoy our American 'home-base.' We couldn't ask for a more wonderful place to call home.

Why the Owner Chose Soldotna, AK, USA:
No words can describe how lovely this property is. For reviews of the property, check out our other listing. The Guest House feels secluded yet offers you access to all the great attractions of the Kenai Peninsula.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Most peope stay with us because they LOVE to fish for salmon or trout. With the Kenai River just a THREE MINUTE drive away at Mogan's Landing State Park, you can pop down to the river any time you feel like it! But if you just want to enjoy the beauty of Alaska, this property, and the Kenai Peninsula, offer some of the best views and activities in the State.
