About the property

4br, 1.5ba with Mountain Views in a Fishing and Hiking Paradise

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!

This gorgeous single family home features many high-end touches for your delight and comfort.

You will appreciate the care the owners have put into this gorgeous property: beautiful granite, substantial furniture, tasteful décor. They use this home regularly themselves, so they make sure it is comfortable, well-appointed, and beautiful. The attention this home receives from its owners and manager keeps it clean and welcoming.

The open-concept main room is complemented by slate and wood flooring, numerous windows with lots of natural light as well as well-placed lighting fixtures, granite and stainless steel in the kitchen, substantial and quality furnishings, and beautiful décor. The wood stove that anchors this space adds a warm, rustic touch. It’s the perfect space for family and group gathering, allowing for conversation, board games, watching movies, gourmet cooking, and making memories of all kinds.

Four bedrooms are accessed down the hallway. Each bedroom has beautiful wood doors and floors, quality furniture, fresh bedding, and natural light. The first bedroom on the left sleeps two in a queen bed. Across the hallway is a second queen bedroom, suiting another couple. At the end of the hallway are two other bedrooms, one with two twin beds, the other with a queen bed, comfortably sleeping four additional guests.

The bathrooms in the home are fresh, tasteful, and well-appointed. The main bath features a slate floor and a magnificent granite-topped vanity and a comfortable shower stall. The second, a half-bath, also has the nice touch of granite and slate. There is also a laundry room for your use, with a full-size washer and dryer.

Outside, the patio hosts a nice BBQ grill for preparing your world-class salmon catch. Just up the hill, with magnificent views of the surrounding area and majestic Mount Cecil, is a firepit (chairs provided) where you will get to enjoy the midnight sun, the sounds of the gurgling creek, and the fresh air!

This property is surrounded by mature spruce forest mixed with aspen and birch, screening it from the quietly traveled and well-maintained road. Just 1/3 mile down the road, in easy walking distance, the Kenai River views take your breath away. Just beyond that the road descends to river level where you can get up close and personal with this world-class fishing river.

(Note: the beautiful slate floors have a natural uneven character. If members of your group are elderly or toddlers, please consider mobility issues on slightly uneven flooring.)

Wonderful rental home.

Perfect home for our group of anglers enjoying beautiful Cooper Landing. The home is located in a great spot and we really enjoyed the spacious living area and kitchen. Jessica and team do a great job making sure the home is ready on arrival and always available to answer questions. Thanks!

Our family loved our stay in Cooper Landing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for 10 days and we thoroughly enjoyed this property. Good kitchen allowing us to cook most meals at home. Large great room to allow for many gatherings, card games and connecting time. Good sized bedrooms with decent beds allowed for quality rest between too many outdoor activities available near by. The minor hiccups that we expect on any vacation were attended to promptly by Jessica and she even volunteered to mail us some meaningful items we left behind. I will use this property for my next visit and strongly recommend this property to family and friends.

Beautiful, clean, and secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Corner of heaven is very appropriately named. My family and I stayed for three days and did not want to leave. Lots of room and lots of privacy. beautiful lot with a gorgeous view of a nearby mountain. Corner of Heaven was our homebase for our guided trips in Seward, just under one hour away...easy driving. If we ever come back to Cooper Landing, this will be 'our corner of heaven' again! Wonderful host who even took care of mailing us a key we left behind. Highly recommend!

lovely home, lovely town

  • 5 of 5

This house was so nice, it felt new and updated. There was so much room in the living spaces, the couches were comfortable and the kitchen was large. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived, it felt like we were the first people to ever stay there! The town is quiet and felt secluded, it is about 1 hour from Seward and 1 hour from Girdwood areas. There are a lot of fishing operations in the town of cooper landing to go river fishing. There are 4 bedrooms but there is only one shower, so just be aware, it didn't really bother our family of 7 though.

About Jessica Larsen

My name is Jessica, and I am the manager of this property. I have taken care of high-end vacation rentals in this area for more than five years, and have a long history before that in the hospitality lodging industry. My husband, Courtney, and I have recreated in Cooper Landing for decades; we know the best hiking trails, tour companies, fishing guides, etc., and are more than happy to share our local knowledge with you. We only manage a small number of properties, so we can give each the individual attention it and its guests deserve. We would be pleased to host you!

The owners of this beautiful house are from Anchorage and currently live in Oregon. They purchased the property many years ago, and have been building this, their dream vacation home, on the site for the past several years. It is recently completed; they have impeccable taste and have made sure it has all the nice details. You will be impressed with the quality they have brought into their little slice of paradise: they care about beauty and details and want to share it with guests who will appreciate the comforts of home they have incorporated.

Jessica Larsen purchased this house in 2013

Why Jessica Larsen chose Cooper Landing

As manager, I am delighted to have this home in my care because of its quality and ambiance. The fact that the owners have put so much personal care into the property and use it themselves when they can makes it feel particularly comfortable to stay in. They care about doing things right and so do I.

The owners discovered this piece of land by great coincidence many years ago. Most residents of Southcentral Alaska love Cooper Landing – accessible and central in the vast Kenai Peninsula, surrounded by mountains, rivers, National Forest, and National Wildlife Refuge lands. They have dreams and plans for this space, placed right in the middle of their favorite recreational spaces; it’s exciting for them to share it with you!

What makes this house unique

This home is easy to access, not far from a quietly traveled and well-maintained road, but screened from it by mature spruce forest, mixed with aspen and birch. From the firepit, perched up on the hill, you can hear Bean Creek gurgling by, admire Mount Cecil, and enjoy the small community feel of rural Alaska. It’s a great place to make memories.
