Great place near Moose Pass!
We stayed her for 2 nights in July and loved it. We had our 2 college age kids with us and Jan got us a sleeping pad for our 4the person.
The cabin is solidly built and has some handcrafted detail that really is impressive. You are down a walking path from the main house with a lot of privacy. The romance factor is off the charts. It has a fire pit outside the cabin and wood burning stove inside if you needed it (we didn’t). The bathroom is up the path a bit, but not a bad distance at all. Very clean. We highly recommend this place for your stay near Moose Pass. Your hosts are very friendly.
We had a very peaceful and enjoyable stay at this Moose Pass cabin.
The cabin was exactly as described and pictured. We had just finished a 10 day cruise/land tour and we needed some relaxing down time with just the two of us. The cabin is nestled in a lush forest with little artful touches using flowers and decorative items. Jan built the cabin himself which is a work of art in itself. The cabin only has cold running water and you need to walk up a short path to the toilet/shower house which was spotlessly clean (as was the cabin). It was a bit inconvenient not to have the facilities in the cabin, but the positive aspects of the cabin far out weighed the inconvenience. We would rent the cabin again without hesitation. The cabin is very easy to find and it is about a 10 minute drive to Cooper Landing and a 35 minute drive to Stewart.
Cabin in the woods
This was my wife's favorite place we stayed on our trip to Alaska. Quiet and secluded and so charming. Restroom and shower are in a separate facility and no stove for cooking (had coffee pot and microwave). With a little planning though we could make do without the stove. Location close to hiking and Seward and the price was good. I'd go back in an instant.
Peaceful and Relaxing
My and hubby stayed here for a couple of nights. It was really nice. It was easy to book with Jan and VRBO. We met the owner once just as we were leaving. Very friendly. Otherwise we met her dogs - very cute. As you walk down the path to the cabin, you are surrounded by trees, ferns, wild flowers and a little creek. Very peaceful setting. There's a fire pit and wood in front with pretty half logs to sit on. It was wet and rainy when we got here. Mosquitoes were around so bring bug spray. You can hear the main road traffic but after a while you forget about it. You can't see it. I thought it might be difficult with the bathhouse in a different place, but it was fine. Easy for me to say since I don't get up during the night to go. Everything was neat as a pin. We brought drinks and they fit in the mini-fridge along with some creamer and snacks. We ended up microwaving our hotdogs as my husband's skill at lighting a fire outside failed. The bed is a small queen - or maybe its because one side is against the wall.
Sunset was at 11:30pm and morning at 4:30am and it seemed it was light all the time with the moon out. The little circle window up top isn't tinted so it was a bit difficult to sleep. We found a sleep mask the day we left, which would have helped. We went on a day cruise to see the glaciers in Seward. It was easy to get there from here and its a pretty drive. Highly recommended! We would stay here again without a problem.
Jan is a great host. The attention to details in the amenities and Jan's care and service are unparalleled.
Amazing, beautiful cabin in the woods
We loved staying here! It was an absolute treat. Jan, his wife, and their two dogs were so friendly and hospitable. Walking down the stone path was a great way to end our adventure-filled days on the Kenai Peninsula. The tiny creek flowing nearby was so peaceful. We will be coming back! Thanks again!
