About the Property

The home overlooks the river and has four bedrooms plus a loft with three beds

The house has two bedrooms on the second level along with the kitchen, living room, one bathroom, and dining area, and a full length deck with seating area to sit and watch the river and the boats catching fish along with seeing the eagles soaring overhead and occasionally swooping down to snag a fish. There is a large loft above the living room with at least three beds for extra sleeping for the kids or tired fishermen to enjoy a nap or watch a movie on the TV. The lower level has two more bedrooms, one with two twin beds and one with a king size bed, one bathroom, and the laundry room.

The separate garage has a processing room with a commercial vacuum packing machine to put up your catch as quickly as possible for the use of our guests for a small additional charge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: The owners Lloyd and Deborah Stenersen have been married 43 years, have 8 children, 6 daughters and two sons, 29 grandchildren. Lloyd moved here and became a full time resident of Alaska in May of 2012 and enjoys being able to fish and hunt year round. Lloyd was born and raised in Vancouver, Washington and in 1991 started and is still the owner of Cascade West Development, Inc. which is a home building company in Ridgefield WA and is now run by his son in law.

Why the Owner Chose Soldotna, AK, USA:
The Kenai River is located in Soldotna, Alaska just 145 miles south of Anchorage. The Kenai River is known for the best fishing in the world. The Kenai River holds the World Record for the largest King Salmon ever caught weighing in at over 97 lbs. On the Kenai River it isn't a matter of how many fish you can catch but HOW you catch fish. You can practice your spin casting, fly fishing, charter a fishing expedition, or you can even net a few fish, and it is a lot more fun to do from a private riverbank. The Kenai River carries many species of Salmon - Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, and Pinks, Trout, Steelhead and Dolly Varden. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the outdoors and enjoy watching moose walk across your front door and eagles soaring directly above while fishing on the Kenai River.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lloyd and his two sons Jason and Collin traveled to the Kenai Peninsula and fished the Kenai River for the first in 2002 while visiting the oldest daughter Lorinda who lived in Wasilla at that time. Lloyd caught a 70 lb. king salmon while on a guided trip and they all caught their limit of 6 reds each from the river bank that evening and from then was hooked on the Kenai. He went back two years later and bought this river frontage log home and now every July invites about 25 family and friends to come and enjoy the experience with him.
