About Bear Den Cabins Brolene Gerwig
We, Chuck and Brolene Gerwig, have lived in the community on Victory Road for 23 years, in fact we met while working at Victory Bible Camp at the end of the road! It has been a great place to raise our 4 kids! After having worked at the camp for years Chuck started a construction business in the Glacier View Community, building log and frame houses, remodeling, plowing snow, and little bit of everything! He has had the opportunity to snowmachine the Iditarod trail, helping to film the 2004 Iditarod Dog Sled Race. In 2014 he was featured on Building Alaska. The log home he and his crew built sits beside the Matanuska Glacier. Brolene has so enjoyed raising the kids with this incredible nature right outside our door. She tries to keep up with all that Chuck does, and each week does a day of school nursing in 2 small local schools. The family has been blessed to hunt, snowmachine, 4 wheel, canoe, kayak, and hiked in the area. You don't need to go far to be astounded with the views!

Why Bear Den Cabins Brolene Gerwig chose Glacier View
We bought this property in the fall of 2014 from our dear neighbor who lived here for 36 years. She and her husband bought this, one of the first cabins built on the road, and turned it into their gracious home, which welcomed many over the years. Now we welcome others to come experience the Glacier View area with its beauty and charm.

Can't Wait To Come Back!
It could not have been any easier. First time in this area of Alaska, the manager/owner answered all my questions and offered suggestions when I asked for them. Breathtaking Area Of Alaska! Absolutely will return to the Bear Den Cabin!
Perfect place for Glacier hiking
We enjoyed our short stay in the cabin. It is comfortable and spacious, a great base for Glacier hike.
Great Alaskan cabin and great host!
Hr4at host, loved this quaint well stocked cabin with excellent host!
Excellent Alaskan cabin in beautiful location!
We had an amazing time staying in this cabin! It so cozy and welcoming. Brolene came by to make sure that we had made it ok and we enjoyed chatting with her! Our only regret was not having more time to spend there! Our time there was perfect. Well equipped facilities, comfy bed, wonderful deck with a view, the list could go on! One thing we were sure of was that we want to come back!
Thanks for sharing you place!
It was so nice to have you!! Hope you do come again!!
Had a great stay. Everything was very comfortable. In a great spot for hiking the matanuska glacier.
We are just 10 miles from the spectacular Matanuska Glacier, the largest Glacier in Alaska that can be reach by vehicle. It is 26 miles long and 4 miles at the terminus. A highlight of any trip is a chance to hike on this incredible mountain of ice, or to hike beside it on Lion's Head mountain for out-of-this-world views of the glacier, the mountain ranges surrounding you, and the braided Matanuska River. There is hiking right out your door, up the Talkeetna Range, or along the Glenn Highway, and down to the Matanuska River. We are one half mile from Victory Bible Camp founded in 1947. The Den is one of the first cabins on Victory Road, built in 1972.
