Property description

Please call or email me - Jessica - and I can fill you in on this great house and our full range of guest services and amenities. Cooper Landing Vacation Rentals will take care of you on your vacation of a lifetime!

No other rental home in the area can offer you the same level of privacy and flexibility for traveling families and groups as this house can, while still providing clean, fresh, bright accommodations.

This newer home welcomes you into the living and dining area with floor to ceiling windows and an expansive mountain view. The large deck overlooks the large, forest-bordered lawn, while the creek gurgles and bubbles nearby. Enjoy your daily salmon catch on the outdoor barbeque grill, and gather for the evening around the huge outdoor fire pit.

Your daytime hours will be comfortable and warm inside, with leather furniture, stainless steel appliances in the main kitchen, beautiful tongue and groove wood throughout, a full laundry, and pleasant amenities to make you feel at home: games, toys for the kids, nice linens and towels. As a special bonus, this home features a light and bright walk-out basement level which is set up as a complete 1 BR/1 BA apartment, with a separate kitchen, living room, and dining room. Your group can stay in this space happily together and still enjoy privacy and seclusion when needed.

At night, settle into the five beautifully appointed bedrooms. Upstairs there is a bedroom with a queen bed, a second bedroom with twin bunk beds (a twin mattress or a quality queen-sized air mattress available for the floor in either of these bedrooms with prior arrangement), and a third room just for the little ones, featuring a wall of toy shelves (a child's paradise!) a single bed (custom-sized, slightly smaller than a twin), and a toddler bed. This upstairs level has a full bathroom with a bathtub.

The main level of the home, in addition to the laundry, kitchen, dining, and living rooms, has a convenient half-bath, an enclosed porch, and the master suite. The master bedroom features a queen-sized bed, and the ensuite bathroom has a shower.

The lower level of the house is a walk-out basement apartment, with large front-facing windows, its own living room, dining room, and kitchen. On this level there is a bathroom with shower and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed and an extra-long single bed.

Your hosts are local residents with decades of experience recreating on the Kenai Peninsula. We've hiked every trail, explored every tourism company, and we would love to share our local knowledge with you. We can help connect you with the best itinerary for your travels, assisting you with bookings, directions, maps, advice. Please, let us help you plan the vacation of a lifetime.

Cooper Landing is the ideal site to stage your multi-day Kenai Peninsula adventure. Because of its central location, you can quickly access activities in Seward and Soldotna/Kenai in less than one hour, and easily drive to Anchorage, Portage, Whittier, Girdwood, Homer, Clam Gulch, Anchor Point, Ninilchik, or any other site for fishing, sailing, clamming, horseback riding, kayaking, flightseeing, wildlife viewing, photography, rafting, hiking, biking, skiing, shopping, or any other of a myriad activities that bring you to beautiful Alaska. Our specialized recreation planning service company, Adventure Guru, will help you create the best itinerary for your group, usually at no cost to you! We love to help our guests enjoy the place we love to call home, and are more than willing to share our local knowledge with you. We've recreated here for decades. Let us help!

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: From the Owner: We used to come to the Kenai Peninsula from our home north of Anchorage and rent other vacation homes, but we loved our experiences down here so much that we finally decided to buy our own vacation chalet. After many years of having just our family and friends stay, we've decided to open it up to you and your family so that you can love and know Cooper Landing and the Kenai Peninsula as much as we do. It's our place to escape from the hustle and bustle of our careers and life in the city. We love fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing. We are Alaskans through and through. From the manager: My name is Jessica. My family (my husband Courtney, and our three small children) has lived in Cooper Landing for five years, but have recreated here for decades. We manage only a few homes so we can give them each a personal touch and the attention they and their guests deserve. We would love to host you!

Why Cooper Landing, AK, USA:
From the owner: This home was built by an owner-builder who took care to make it warm, lovely, high-quality and welcoming. When he decided to sell, we were happy to call it our own. The large windows, gorgeous mountains, expansive lawn, encircling forest, nearby creek, and flexible floor plan have been a dream come true. We have wonderful family memories here, in the peace and quiet, in a beautiful town the local chamber calls 'The Gem of the Kenai Peninsula - an Emerald in the Summer, a Diamond in the Winter'. Cooper Landing is truly one of the most beautiful locations in Alaska, with the stunning turquoise Kenai River running through, the National Forest nestling up to the majestic mountains. You should learn to call this place 'home', too! From the manager: Offering this home to you is very exciting because it feels such a needed niche in the Cooper Landing vacation rental market - it is so spacious and flexible in its sleeping and living arrangements, easily accommodating families and large groups. It's a high-quality home with a warm feel, perfect for a relaxing vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We were immediately impressed with the large fire pit in the spacious yard - it has been the site of incredible gatherings of family and friends. The whole house feels open and warm, convenient but out of the way. We keep binoculars in the living room for spotting wildlife on the surrounding mountains. We enjoy lazy evenings on the deck listening to the creek go by. We can have guests and have as much privacy or togetherness as we need in the 3000 square feet of space, with plenty of place to sleep, bathe, gather, and even cook and eat.
