About Donna Davis

Johnnie and Donna came from the deep South, so southern hospitality is a part of who they are. Like other young couples, they came to Alaska seeking an adventure, reared their family, and now enjoy their grandchildren.

Johnnie has worked in the Information Technology department of the local electric cooperative for over 36 years. Donna worked as an Administrative Director of the local community senior center, managed an adult day care program for the frail and elderly in a home-based business for 15 years, and recently retired.

Now they are ready for their next adventure, sharing their home and hosting families so others can enjoy their own Alaskan adventure.

Why Donna Davis chose Palmer

Palmer is a small community town, populated by colonists in the 1930s, with a lot of history that is still remembered and celebrated with Colony Day events in June and December. Combine the small community atmosphere with the breathtaking beauty of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley surrounded by mountains; add the long days of summer that produce the most extraordinary flowers and vegetables highly admired at the Alaska State Fair in late August; and top it off with all the fishing, hunting, 4 wheeling, snow machining, cross-country skiing, wildlife viewing in your front and back yard. We have been blessed to have found our small piece of the Last Frontier.

What makes this lodge unique

Location, location, location! Moose Comfortable Vacation Rentals is located on over 3 acres of Alaska wilderness, surrounded by spectacular panoramic views of the Chugach Mountain Range, Pioneer Peak, and the Knik Glacier. Canoe Lake (stocked with fish) is within walking distance and just a bit further is the Kepler-Bradley Lake State Recreation Reserve that includes miles of well-maintained and marked wilderness trails that weave among 13 lakes with stunning mountain views along the way. We border the Palmer Hay Flats State Game Refuge which is rich with wildlife, moose, wolf, beaver, etc., salmon streams, nesting eagles along with other birds of prey, water fowl and migratory birds.

Yet, just a few miles away you will find great restaurants, fun shopping, emergency clinics, and a hospital. And the city of Anchorage, with all of its attractions, is only 35 miles away.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This rental exceeded our expectations! The rental is clean, very well stocked with absolutely everything we needed, the backyard is a child's paradise- playground equipment, a meadow, etc. It was quiet, within a 10 minute drive to downtown Palmer. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! It is a beautiful rental!!! They even left us muffins, chocolates, coffee and creamer and there are basic condiments.

Beautiful, clean, & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights here as a family of 5-6. It was a little crowded once everyone was settled in for the night, but we didn't mind (still more spacious than a hotel room!!!). During the day, everything tucked away nicely into the large closet. Beds were comfortable (we found an "egg crate" mattress topper to use on the hide-a-bed which was actually comfy), shower was great, all linens & towels are superb, furnishings are fabulous ... it really was a great place to stay.

We utilized the gas grill twice & the fire pit once. The view from the porch is beyond beautiful.

Very basic spices included, no condiments or saran wrap/tinfoil. Dishes were adequate, although I did purchase a couple aluminum foil pans for some meals in order to bake a quick meal. Appreciated having a griddle & a crock pot!

Many thanks to the Davis' for a perfect home base during our time in their beautiful state. God bless you both!

Another fabulous getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love this place and the owners are so accommodating. It's one of those best kept secrets you don't want too many knowing about...out of pure selfishness of course. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week here and it was great. When you walk in the door your going to say "wow", just like we did. Everything you need is there, and then some. Centrally located for terrific sight-seeing. Highly recommended!!

new, convenient, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I was working in the area. The owners are obviously conscientious, providing all the amenities one would expect and then a few more, such as fast wifi, W/D, gas grill, gas fireplace, and patio furniture. The king-sized bed was especially comfortable.
