1 Bedroom, 1 Bath-2 Story (640 Sq Ft) Newly Remodel Log Cabin. Views & Wildlife

Our yard is literally millions of acres of pristine wilderness. We are the last power pole in our tiny neighborhood. Our driveway is off a gravel road and the tundra comes up to our door which attracts lots of Moose, Fox, Caribou, Lynx, Snowshoe Hares & last year we saw our first Wolf in the yard.

We have great wildflowers in the yard in June & July and you can pick blueberries right out our front door in August & September. The views of Mt. Healy & the Northern Alaska Range are spectacular.

You stay at The Denali Park View Cabin for the sense of truly being in the Alaska Wilderness, yet you are only 1-mile off The Parks Hwy, with all the creature comforts of a modern cabin.

Our log cabin has recently been completely updated with new furniture and appliances. Upstairs has a brand new kitchen, dining table and wood floors. The views from the sofa are SPECTACULAR. The brand new sofa doubles as a queen bed and as of July 2016 we purchased a 2" memory foam mattress for added comfort.

Downstairs has a newly remodeled modern bathroom with a great shower and a brand new King Size Pillow top bed.

There is a roll-away bed downstairs if you have a 5th person.

The cabin has Direct TV in the upstairs living area with a new HDTV and high speed wireless internet throughout the house. AT&T 4g network provides a strong signal.

The cabin has central heat and all the windows open and have screens.

Other amenities include: an outdoor deck and BBQ.

It's a 10 minute walk to Otto lake which has a playground, fishing and swimming. You can rent a boat or bicycle from Denali Outdoor Center. They also offer White Water Rafting.

Black Diamond resort is also a 10 minute walk. They have a great restaurant along with a 9 hole golf course. They also offer ATV tours and wagon ride dining.

There are miles and miles of walking and biking trails right out our front door.

The truth of the matter is you rent our cabin to be with your family and friends and to have a truly Alaskan Experience with all the creature comforts you'd expect.

There is also a 2300 sq. ft. house on our property that sleeps 12 (VRBO 499428). Our other neighbors are close by but you can't see them because we are nestled in the woods.

We really hope you enjoy our cabin. It's the real Alaskan Experience.


Our calendars are always up to date. You can click the “Book Now” button on the VRBO website and book and pay for your reservation online.

We are located 1-mile off the George Parks Hwy (3), 10-miles North of Denali National Park’s only entrance Road. It will take you 10-15 minutes to drive to the Park.

Our property is a 5 hour drive from Anchorage or a 2 hour drive from Fairbanks.

We have 4 VRBO’s in Denali (VRBO Listing #499428, VRBO Listing #501627, VRBO Listing #786417, and VRBO Listing #786419) and pride ourselves on your group having a fantastic experience at our properties.

Check in 4pm. Check out 11am.

We will email you driving directions and key code for entry 30 days prior to your arrival.

Access to our property is via paved road except for the driveways which are maintained gravel. Use of gravel driveways does not violate your rental car agreement.

We collect 100% payment at time of booking. We will refund 75% if you cancel 90 days prior to your reservation. If you cancel with less than 90 days’ notice we refund 75% for the nights the unit is re-rented to another party.

A $100 Refundable Housekeeping Deposit is required. Wash your dishes, take all your garbage out to the dumpster and clean up after yourselves and you will get your deposit returned within 1 week after departure,

The $50 Cleaning Fee is used to pay the housekeepers. When you arrive and see how clean the cabin is you will appreciate this fee.

We highly recommend you buy your groceries and supplies in Anchorage or Fairbanks. Denali has limited goods and is very expensive. We recommend Fred Meyer, Safeway or Walmart for Groceries.

We provide all linens, towels, hand soap, toilet paper, dish soap, sponges, trash bags & paper towels.

The coffee maker does not need filters and we supply coffee.

Our kitchens are well equipped with everything you need to prepare and serve your meals. We provide paper towels, trash bags, sponges and dish soap.

In the bathroom you will find shampoo, conditioner, bath and hand soap. We provide all linens and towels.

We supply the propane for the outdoor BBQ.

You need to supply your own firewood for the outdoor fire pit. You can by bundles of wood when you buy groceries.

You can drink our water. We do not have recycling. We supply an outdoor dumpster for garbage.

95% of people who come to Denali only ride the bus 1 day. We recommend booking your bus trip well in advance. There is only 1 road so a more expensive bus takes the same route as the least expensive bus. We recommend taking the bus to Eielson Visitor Center. It’s an 8-9 hour day and you see the best part of the park. Most people don’t get off the bus except at rest stops. You can get off and hike around and wait for the next bus. If you have a large group you all may not be able to get on the next bus and there may not be seats together. https://www.nps.gov/dena/planyourvisit/bus-fees-reservations.htm

You can access the 1st 15 miles of Denali National Park’s Road with your rental vehicle and there are marked hiking trails and a visitor center.

It’s important to remember the beauty and wilderness does not end at the park border. We can highly recommend 1 day hiking out of the house, having a picnic and enjoying your family and friends. All our properties are on the park boundary and you have traveled a long way. 1 day enjoying the surroundings does not cost anything and can be quite rewarding (You are as likely to view wildlife from our living room as you are inside the park). You are living in the middle of interior Alaska.

As far as all the other organized activities in our area we recommend you book those upon arrival depending on weather and your group’s desires. Rafting, flight seeing, horseback riding, biking, golf, fishing, ATV, Jeep Tours and much more are all available and all their brochures are displayed in our homes. They are all nearby and most will pick you up at our homes.

I’m happy to answer any questions or make suggestions. My number 1 priority is to make sure your group enjoys their stay in Denali and at our homes.

About David Coleman

We have lived in Denali National Park since 1992. We are world travelers and always use VRBO. We have 4 vacation rentals at the park entrance and can assure you your experience at our properties is our highest priority. We are available to answer any questions you may have about our area.

There is plenty of room and has all the creature comforts you want in a vacation rental.

David Coleman purchased this Cabin in 2007

Why David Coleman chose Healy

This property is so awesome because it's the last property on the end of the road so your backyard goes on forever. The views of the mountains are some of the best in Alaska and we really see an amazing amount of wildlife, yet we have direct TV, WiFi & are 1 mile from the highway. We truly feel like we're in the Denali Wild living in this fantastic cabin.

What makes this Cabin unique

You come to Alaska for the experience. Why stay in Glitter Gultch (The name of the park entrance area) with the masses. Our cabin lets you enjoy your friends and family with all the activities close by. This cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway of for a family of 4 or 5.

                                                              Lovely little house on a quiet location

                                                              Alfred S.

                                                              The 2 story house is in a nice and quiet neighborhood, has a beautiful view into the surrounding mountains, is very clean and was equipped with all we needed. Thank you Dave for sharing this house with us.

                                                              Great little cabin in the mountains

                                                              We enjoyed staying here for 5 days while visiting Denali. It's about 10 miles from the park entrance. Dave has this very accurately described on the listing so no surprises. You have great mountain views from the upstairs. We would recommend for a couple looking to experience Denali.

                                                              Quiet, clean, comfortable.

                                                              By far the best thing about the place is the setting and the quiet. You are in the woods in the middle of AK! If you're looking for clean and quiet, this is a great place to be. The king size bed is comfortable. Sitting on the couch is not so comfortable. We would stay again.

                                                              Awesome Cabin

                                                              david c.

                                                              Just as advertised. Super quiet and awesome views. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere yet it was a 10 minute drive to the park. It's a 15 minute walk to the Black Diamond Restaurant. Lots of good hiking west of the cabin. Best VRBO we stayed at in Alaska. We never saw Dave the owner but he was quick to answer our texts and gave great suggestions. Highly recommend.

                                                              It was very close to me Denali park entrance. The cabin is modest but well kept and clean.

                                                              Linda G.

                                                              We enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay close to Denali.


                                                              Adam B.

                                                              Fantastic cabin, very good condition, clean, well appointed. Perfect for 2 adults & 2 kids. Lots of moose activity in the area. Would go back!

                                                              We are 10 miles from Denali National Parks Entrance. We are located on the Park's boundary. It's like living in the Park surrounded by tundra and wildlife yet you have all the creature comforts of a modern home.

If you cancel within 90 days I will refund 75% of your payment for each night that is re-booked. If the house is not re-rented you will lose 100% of your payment. So
