Beautiful, private cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a delight to stay at Fern Hollow. The cabin is beautifully situated down a gravel path by a babbling brook. The workmanship is excellent with an artistic eye and attention to detail. Loved the wood stove for keeping things warm and comfortable.

The bath house is up the path. A wall heater and nice warm shower made it very comfortable.

Wish we had more time at the cabin to enjoy the fire pit and to just relax in this beautiful setting.

A charming and adorable cabin (I'd give it 4 1/2 stars, but didn't know how to do a half...)

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Fern Hollow cabin. Jan, the owner, has added so many charming touches and it was utterly pleasant. The cabin itself is quite secluded, and is compact and totally cozy. We throughly enjoyed everything about it. Especially wonderful was waking up in the morning and looking out the huge window at the surrounding pines. There is a charming old-fashioned (looking...I actually think it is brand new) wood burning stove in the cabin, and we would start a fire and catch up on the news, etc. each morning on our cellphones, as we lay in the super comfy bed and sipped coffee. Though there is not a complete kitchen in the cabin, there is a sink, a microwave, a coffee maker, and a toaster. Right outside the cabin is a private fire pit, and we enjoyed a fabulous, roaring fire every evening. The bathroom is a little walk away from the cabin, but it was very convenient, modern and pristine clean. It had a wonderful shower! There is hiking and fishing EVERYWHERE around, and the biggest decision each day was which trail we'd conquer. All in all, we loved our stay at Fern Hollow, and would definitely recommend it if you like to be cozy and warm with the one you love!

Gorgeous cabin, helpful owners, friendly dogs, best decision of our trip.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin and bathhouse are beautiful and well constructed. Owner responds quickly to messages and is very helpful. Dogs are sweet and I consider them a bonus. Don't eat at the Trail Lake Lodge, my girlfriend got food poisoning from their breakfast sandwich. Our only complaint is the shower had occasional cold bouts (5 to 10 seconds).

Beautiful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We thought this place was so cute! Such a fun stay to add into our adventure to Alaska! You are surrounded by trees in what I perceived to feel like a "fairy-tale" setting. The bathhouse up the hill from the cabin was very clean and bug free. We were able to keep ourselves very warm with the stove heater as well. If you are looking for a cozy cabin experience this is definitely the place!!

Great attention to detail!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in large part thanks to the attention to detail Jan paid to everything related to the cabin. When we walked down the path to the cabin we knew we were in for a treat based on the small details that had been added to the path, small details of decoration to small flower pots in neat locations. When we arrived at the cabin it was clear nothing had been forgotten in the design. As advertised it is a cozy cabin but the trim work made us think of stepping into a fairy tale. Our daughter loved the loft and the beds were comfortable. The design on the sink was really neat. One note, the cabin only has a microwave so plan meals accordingly.

The area was beautiful as well. You are centrally located to explore the Kenai. The only downside to the cabin is some road noise from the Seward highway but the traffic is light at night so it was not an issue for sleeping.

We really enjoyed everything about our stay and Jan was very helpful. We would certainly come back again.
