About the Property

Alaska cottage with mountain views and Mt. Denali northside backroad access

Stampede Cottage is located on Antares Road off of Stampede Road in Healy, Alaska- 20 minutes from the entrance to Denali National Park. It is 5 miles from Eight Mile Lake and a view of Mt. McKinley. Stampede Road/Trail is a historic mining trail and the featured location of the book and movie 'Into the Wild.' There is a also a trail at the end of Antares Road that will take you above treeline and up a ridgeline paralleling Dry Creek and Mt. Healy.

The layout of the cottage includes a kitchen, small dining table, bathroom, living area and a bedroom on the ground floor. The upstairs bedroom has a queen bed, bunk bed, and large closet. The newly completed daylight basement has a media room, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and a master suite. There are two queens and one double bed in the downstairs bedrooms. Please inquire to make a single night reservation on left over nights due to the 2 night minimum.

Stampede Cottage was purchased as a one bedroom dry cabin (no running water) where the owners spent the winter with their four boys. Racing to the outhouse before bedtime was a family sport and the huge bedroom closet was transformed into a 'bunk' room. In February came the long awaited arrival of a baby girl and in April the boys watched in amazement as the first trickle of water made its appearance from the kitchen faucet. The bathroom became functional just in time to avoid the summer onslaught of mosquitoes at the outhouse. The next major project was to put in a foundation. Using a small tractor, the basement was dug out around the railroad ties holding up the cabin, footers poured, and walls stood before freeze-up. The following summer the basement floor was leveled by hand, radiant tubing laid, and the slab was poured as the first few snowflakes fell. The basement floorplan adds a media room, two bathrooms, and three bedrooms. The next project is landscaping.


Stampede Cottage is by no means glamorous, but if you would like to give the simple life a try, Stampede Cottage is the place for you.
