About Denise Maddox, Mgr., Alaska Booking and Management, LLC

My wife and I moved our family to Alaska in 1990 to realize the dream of residing in the "Last Frontier".

Raising our children while doing what we love - outdoor activities such as fishing, camping, boating and other wilderness activities - in our spare time was amazing. In the summers we would head out in our little red Zodiak inflatable boat and camp and fish along the Alaska coast.

My career took us away from Alaska for a time, but now that we are retiring and our children are raised, we are beyond thrilled to be back where we belong - on the Kenai Peninsula.

With years of fishing and excursion experience and a deep love for all things Alaska, my family and our amazing on-site property manager Denise, can help make your Alaska vacation dreams come true. We are committed to giving you the experience of a lifetime.

Denise Maddox, Mgr., Alaska Booking and Management, LLC purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Denise Maddox, Mgr., Alaska Booking and Management, LLC chose Kenai Peninsula

We have over 200 feet of river frontage with some of the best fishing in all of Alaska. We are right in the middle of the Kenai Peninsula, this location gives access to the best outdoor excursions with only a short driving distance. Every trip to Homer or Seward is an adventure in itself as the drive is breathtaking and you regularly see wildlife in the beautiful wilderness setting.

What makes this cabin unique

You will not find a nicer cabin on the Kenai River and the view is beautiful. In addition it is amazing to watch the eagles fish the river daily and return to their huge nests in the immediate area. Many times we experience Moose swimming across the river, sometimes with their new calves. During the summer we also see brown and black bear in the area. Every day is an adventure. It is simply one of the very best lodging and excursion opportunities in Alaska.

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our experience at Eagle Head! Our cabin was literally on the river. It was beautiful! The grounds are well kept and had lots of grassy areas for our kids to play in. Our 2 year old twins enjoyed throwing rocks and golfing in the little golf area Ron has set up. Everyone was so nice and friendly with our kids and so helpful! It was so nice my husband could get up in the morning and stay out late fishing right outside our cabin window. I bought leashes for our kids and we would fish while they were safely anchored to the dock. Ron and Denise were so helpful our entire stay, and Ron showed us how to gut and fillet our fish. I was so impressed with the facilities - they have multiple fish cleaning stations, and vacuum packers so we could fillet our fish and vacuum pack them and put them in the freezer right after we caught them - or throw them on the grill. They also have the coolest freezer bags you can buy to bring your fish home. We were causal fishers, as we have small children, and came home with over 50lbs of fish. That was honestly without trying too hard. The cabins are beautiful and well maintained. There are carvings of eagles and bears and moose all over the property. We were there for 9 days and never ran out of things to do. We will definitely be back!

BEST FAMILY FISHING VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best 10 day vacation at Eagle Head Cabins. Basketball, a golf hole, and fishing on the property along with gorgeous views, outdoor seating and amenities, and wild life made this trip memorable. The cabins were clean and equipped with everything we needed. Ron and Taylor were extremely helpful with fishing tips and helping us fillet and package our fish. The surrounding towns were so fun to explore and it was easy to take day trips into Seward, Kenai, and Anchorage. I was nervous about our children as they are only 3 &1 but they had just as much fun as we did. We WILL be back.

Extraodinary cabins with Kenai views and all the amenities in Sterling/Soldotna

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in this amazing cabin and enjoyed a wonderful week long visit to the Kenai peninsula where we enjoyed all types of guided fishing (salmon, trout, halibut) all set up for us by our fantastic hosts Ron & Debbie. This cabin has an outstanding view of the Kenai river. Fifteen yards from the front door is a fishing landing from which you can catch red salmon. We took day trips on sea planes to the mountains to fish. We enjoyed an all day cruise on a private boat out of Seward. We kayaked around glaciers. Evenings were spent around a camp fire. Retiring and waking in a cabin that was so beautiful, clean, comfortable and intriguing with all its views and decorations was unbelievable. The best VRBO and vacation experience we've ever had. Became friendly with the owners and will remain in contact.
