About Jason Nichols

A second generation Alaskan, I was born in Anchorage and raised on the Kenai River - learning to fish before riding a bike. I make my home in Anchorage with my wife and two kids. Our friend and co-owner also lives in Anchorage with his wife and two children. We purchased this property from our in laws when my father in law retired - when he isn't snow birding in Arizona, he serves as the property's resident handy man and story teller. When we aren't in the "big city", we are enjoying the amazing fishing and peaceful tranquility this property has to offer. We hope you enjoy your stay at this piece of heaven on the river.

Jason Nichols purchased this House in 2005

Why Jason Nichols chose Funny River

The family purchased this property in the summer of 2005, when it was just a shell on the foundation. Everything from the ground up has been meticulously added and installed, using only quality materials, fixtures and appliances. Over the years we have added things to make it 'just right' - from the covered fire pit with Trex decking to the covered fish cleaning station situated next to riverside fishing platforms. As our family has expanded, so has entertainment for the kids in the form of a sandbox, swing set and zip line.

What makes this House unique

This property has the best of everything - a modern home with all amenities on a private, spacious lot with an abundance of riverfront. Fishing is available right from the dock any time of day. Waking up to the sounds of the river rushing by is something that never gets old.

                                                      Beautiful Secluded "Cabin"

                                                      Jay U.Anchorage, AK

                                                      This "cabin" was amazing. When I say cabin, I mean very large luxurious home. We arrived with 8 people and found our stay to be very comfortable and relaxing. We were able to catch a ton of fish and pack away for the winter. The caretaker was very polite and helpful and was there when we needed him. This place was everything I expected and more and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place to relax and catch a few fish. There's nothing better than enjoying a cup of coffee with sunrise on the river and an ice cold beer with sunset listening to the water rushing by.

                                                      Excellent lodging and fishing, plan to return, recommending to friends and family!

                                                      Joyce G.Valencia, CA 91355

                                                      Enjoyed our visit at the Lodge more than words can express. Hosts welcomed us upon arrival and made the family feel immediately at home, showing us the spacious, clean, beautiful lodge and grounds, informing us how everything worked, and of course, taking us down to the dock on the Kenai River which impressed us most of all! And to the last day (our visit was too short!), our hosts were available to advise and help; I can't thank them enough. And, yes, we caught salmon there too! We have fond memories and plan to return. Thank you so much for sharing this "piece of Heaven"! Have recommended this property to family and friends.

                                                      What A Place!

                                                      This place is awesome. The inside was very comfortable, great couches, great beds, and very roomy! The yard was large and the fire pit was fantastic! It was covered and there was enough room for 11 people to comfortably sit next to it. The fishing on the river was hot in the mornings and the vacuum packer and large freezer place was a huge plus! All in all it was one of the greatest weeks I've ever had in Alaska.

                                                      Every Fisherman's Dream

                                                      Jay U.Anchorage, AK

                                                      I could not have asked for a more perfect place to have my friends/family fly up and spend a week this summer. The weather was perfect and the fish were in.

                                                      Upon arrival we were struck with awe at the so called "cabin". This place had everything you could think of, from an extra freezer to store all the fish you catch to a fancy wine bottle open for those classier nights on the river. The caretaker not only did his job in taking care of the place, but he went above and beyond to provide the best experience possible and was always there if we needed anything. The cabin was very clean and the comfortable beds allowed me to have some of the best nights of sleep I have ever had.

                                                      When we were not outside, we were down slaying reds on the Kenai river. We literally watched them swim by us (there's that many!). And when the fish were taking their mid-day nap, we had the opportunity of hitting the beautiful golf course only a couple miles down the road.

                                                      All in all, this property was exactly what we wanted and more. It is secluded enough to feel like you are getting away, yet not too far of a drive to Soldanta/Kenai if you need something or want to go out. And we all went home with boxes on boxes of fresh salmon to feed our families through the winter. I will definitely be back!
