About the Property

A Classic Alaska Dry Cabin on the Shores of Kenai Lake

This is the REAL Thing! An Alaskan recreational cabin located in the heart of the Kenai Peninsula. Off the Grid, No electricity, No cell service, hand pump well water, propane lights, and wood stove for heat. We have a Wild and Remote feel! But we're just moments from the Seward Highway (one of the top rated National Scenic Byways) and 19 miles north of Seward. Most likely you won't want to leave, just chill at the deck fireplace in the steamer chairs, sip your coffee or wine, BBQ some steaks, be....

But if you do have a hankering for adventure- fish charters out of Seward, the Seward Sealife Center, the world famous Kenai and Russian rivers, historic Hope, white water rafting the six mile, scenic floatplane rides, stunning historic trail hikes, and fabulous berry picking are all at your fingertips within 30 minutes or less..

If you are familiar with the forest service cabins all over Alaska and the US west you know the drill. We've just taken it to the next level of comfort! Wood provided! Scenes for Free! The soundtrack is lapping waves, float plane flybys, the Alaska Railroad 6 times a day through the property, and our resident eagle ( she sounds like a big chicken!)

The toilet facilities are an outhouse and bathing can be done at the lakefront sauna. Just like the old sourdoughs....

Swimming and Sauna use are at your Own Risk- the lake is COLD! It is a melted Glacier after all....


(We are 4 cabins located on 15 acres at the headwaters of the Kenai River! Check out our other listings! VRBO #790188, #728022, and #790190)

Car: Necessary

"Remote" is the Alaskan description of a place off the road system and hard to get to; usually involving float planes, water taxis, snow machines, hiking, or skiing.... We feel "remote!" but are just 30 meters by garden cart from your parked car...

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We moved to Alaska in 2000 and were wonderfully fortunate to acquire this property. After building the cabin and raising Our family here, now is the time to share it with like-minded travelers who will appreciate its unique and magical features

Why the Owner Chose Primrose, AK, USA:
This is no hotel room. If you sit on the deck and read about Alaska Nellie and the sourdoughs who pioneered this great land you will feel and be a part of the story. The Iditarod National Historic Trail runs along the frozen lakefront in winter......

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
History- You will pass the 100 Year old historic cabin on the way in, you will travel the gravel footpaths, you will watch the morning fog burn off the lake, you will witness and hear the flight of sandhill cranes overhead in season
