About the Property

2 bedroom custom built log home with open floor plan, and lots of Scenery!

You'll get the whole house, 3 acres of privacy, an amazing view, hammock on the bluff and all the amenities you need. The house was custom built by us, and has an open floor plan. The master bedroom faces the mountains and the stunning view! Did we already mention that? The furniture is all brand new, and the decor is totally Alaskan. You will be off the beaten path, but within striking distance of much of the greatness Alaska has to offer!

You will be off the beaten path, but within striking distance of much of the greatness Alaska has to offer!

You'll have tv and wi-fi, cell phone towers are near-by. There is river rafting and king salmon fishing within minutes on the Gulkana and Klutina Rivers. Just down the road is the best restaurant in the Copper Basin, the historic Carriage House. You will be on the door step of Wrangell St. Elias National Park, the largest park in the nation. We can hook you up with local deals and incredible flightseeing!

We live 500 miles away, but our neighbors (who lived in this house for 2 years) are on the 3 acres next door, and they will be your local hosts and deal with any issues or concerns. Leann will make sure your stay is all that you hope for, and we will be available by phone or email whenever needed. She is available to greet you and offer you some opportunities to experience the "local" culture and ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My husband and I met in South America, I moved to Alaska in 1994 and our adventures have continued to this day. We built this place while living in a tent on the property in 1999. We got married (on the property) during the summer of construction and lived here for 4 years. We moved across the state for work in an even more remote place, but our hearts still live here! We maintain close relationships with the great folks in Gakona! We have never rented this to tourists before last summer, but as travelers and adventurers ourselves, we know this is an outstanding place to base your Alaskan adventures from! The Wrangell St. Elias National park, the Nabesna Road, McCarthy, and Valdez are all destinations you can reach while staying at our place. Salmon fishing is within two miles!

Why the Owner Chose Gakona, AK, USA:
We built it, we got married here, we love the mountains! You will too. Check it out, stay a week! The views from our windows are OUTSTANDING!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll have tv and wi-fi, cell phone towers are near-by. There is river rafting and king salmon fishing within minutes on the Gulkana and Klutina Rivers.
