About Zach Roberts/ Monica Roberts

Zach Roberts/ Monica Roberts purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Zach Roberts/ Monica Roberts chose Alaska

This lodge is right in the mountains, I can hike, mountain climb and ski right out my door. It is incredibly scenic and peaceful. Wildlife abounds--and I can still drive to work in less than 15 minutes, downtown Anchorage in 20-25!

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Zach and Monica for sharing your lodge with us! It was the perfect setting for us to enjoy our Alaska adventure! We loved being surrounded by mountains and listening to the sound of the Eagle River!! There was every convenience and the kids had room to spread out! There was beautiful hiking nearby so we didn't have to do a lot of driving! We even got to see moose several times driving up to our lodge, a momma and two babies on our last night! It was a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing getaway!! Precious family memories!!

Cozy, well stocked vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three members of my family stayed at this lodge for a week. The drive to the lodge is fantastic, you really get out of the city! There are so many beautiful homes near the lodge along with hiking trails. There were lots of berry bushes to pick during our stay - there is a berry book at the house so you know which are edible! Also a hiking book that includes all the local hikes. The house is very comfortable and well stocked with anything you might need. The hosts go above and beyond with what you would expect at a rental, I highly recommend this place. If I am ever in the area again, this would be my first choice. Thank you!

This is the place for Memories. First time in Alaska and this place brings the Mountains and puts them right in your lap.

Your own mountain lodge, 4 star quality with all the amenities. If you want a real Alaskan adventure with all the comforts.

Zach Roberts has planed it out perfect.

Zach and Monica have set this up so well that all they had to do was make sure we found the place,

showed us how to use the front door key, point at the mountains all around this place, and tell us to take a deep breathe.

This home sets at the end of a 12 min drive from the frwy down a winding road in a great neighborhood , so essential planning is key. but well worth the


Great host and a Great place

Superb with fabulous amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The property and especially the host, Zach, were terrific! We found it exactly as described and the lodge was spotless and incredibly well-maintained. Zach was very responsive before, during, and after our stay. What a great location - a remote-like and very mountain setting but still close enough to get to city amenities in 20 minutes. Serves as a great jumping-off point for daily excursions all around the 49th state. This was a bucket list vacation for our family and this exceeded our expectations. Hopefully we can return again some day. Highly recommended!!!

Beautiful house in a spectacular setting. Love the deck, the décor, and of course, the hot tub! This home has everything you need to live comfortably away from home for a week or two. Our host Zach was very helpful.
