Remote rustic relaxing roughing it
Great place to get away however you should be prepared for using a water taxi/ landing craft for the crossing from Seward. The stairs are pretty straight up and lead to a rewarding view, if it’s not raining take extra water to drink but if it’s raining take rubber boots for getting to the outhouse. It was quiet until some folks arrived next cabin over and played the radio on outdoor speakers. I’d recommend the lowest cabin, it’s on the beach next to the creek and then climb the cliff encumbered for the view. Bring some fresh fish, build a fire, and enjoy the time away.
Can't beat the view
What a beautiful piece of paradise! It was a pretty rainy weekend but that didn't stop us from having a blast. The rain clouds parted for a little bit so we were able to get out on the kayaks and see some awesome wild life! When it was pouring, we enjoyed hanging out in the cozy Fox Den. The propane cooktop/oven was perfect to cook some pretty darn tasty meals. We were glad we brought some rain boots because they were definitely needed to get up to the outhouse. The lodge next to us was empty for the weekend so we felt like we had the hold area to ourselves. Thank you Jeff for letting us share your little piece of the world! It was all we could have hoped for and more. We will be back :)
Beautiful views . . . be aware
The views from the Fox Den are truly breathtaking. My stay was peaceful and good for my soul. The beds were very comfortable.
Be aware that when you arrive you will need to carry everything you bring up 70 steps. Pack accordingly. The 1/2 bath is an outhouse. Water consists of a 55 gallon blue plastic drum for containment. It had not rained in over a week when we stayed at the Den and we were completely out of water after washing one small set of dishes. There is a beautiful stream at the bottom of the 70 steps from which you can draw water to carry to the Den for boiling on the camp stove. There is no power.
The Fox Den sits next to the Granite Point Mountain Lodge which is solar powered and has a complete kitchen and bath. The guests in the Lodge were kind enough to charge our camera batteries and cell phones.
Make all arrangements for transportation to and from this area in advance. The cellphone service is unreliable and if you are trying to get back to Seward timely to catch the train or a cruise advance reservations are absolutely necessary.
As the description states, this is a “dry” cabin with an outhouse in a remote location. Guests are asked to bring in their own drinking water, ice for the cooler and bbq briquettes. All bedding, cookware, dishes, cups, mugs and lanterns are provided. There is a propane heater and cooktop with a small oven and propane is provided.
Amazing Cabin and Experience!
We had three adults and three kids (11,9,5) spend two nights at this and the Pepper Creek Cabin and it did not disappoint. Jeff is the real deal and has created the ultimate vacation spot. If you ever watch Building Alaska season 8 you will see him in action. Having met him on the property while we were there, we can say that he is the same in real life as he is on the show. These cabins are clearly exceptionally well built and are very comfortable! Jeff is an amazing carpenter and a bit of throwback to an earlier time when folks were tougher. It did rain most of the time (it is Seward after all) but the rain did not hold us back. Having two cabins for six allowed us to spread out a bit and have an upper and lower option. We took full advantage of the Sea Kayaks and ventured out to Thumb Cove a handful of times. The entire property is magical and the views are spectacular. Just being out there puts you at ease. Be sure to bring your own fire wood and smores to take advantage of the Fire Pits. Be aware that the beach on the property can be rough at times. Our best experience was kayaking at 10 pm because that was when the surf calmed down. Over the course of your say, you should be able to wait out some surf if the ocean is rough. Book this cabin now and you will create memories for a lifetime!
Super cute little primitive Cabin with a killer view!
After backpacking Crow Pass my sister and I were so happy to still be "camping" and secluded yet have the comfort of a bed, the convenience of a kitchenette, a heater, and relaxing chairs that leaned back! The views from the porch were priceless and we heard and saw bald eagles daily. We also saw a small pod of orcas swim by on the clearest and warmest Alaska day ever. When the rain came we welcomed it and enjoyed reading on the comfy recliner inside and also on the porch when the rain let up. Make sure you come backpack style because the stairs get steep. Also, definitely bring rain boots and gear for exploring and the jaunt up to the "Facilitrees" in the rain, extra water for drinking/washing/dishes, and a good book. Know that this is not a solo cabin but a grouping of cabins with space in between which was just fine for us. The guests at the Lodge were out fishing all day so it felt like we had the place to ourselves and when they came back they were respectful. There was a code to get in which somehow we missed but the owners GF was there and able to give it to us so we got in just fine. I only wish we had been able to meet Jeff from what I read in the other reviews. Also, I caught bad cold so didn't get out into the kayaks but saw others doing so and it looked marvelous. I absolutely loved our two nights here and would definitely recommend it. Enjoy!
This place was wonderfully beautiful! We rented the Fox Den, arrived on a Monday and left on Thursday. Stopped at Safeway in town for food and water. Got a styrofoam ice chest to put cold items in. Purchased ice across street from dock. Used 3 bags for time we were there. We used Louis Garding of Alaskan CoastalSafari to get there. Very nice guy.
I was disappointed when I saw the houses. By themselves they are awesome... but they are very close together. I knew there were other places but thought they were apart.
There are lots of stairs, my husband hated them.
The place was very clean, but it seems the guests previously are to do dishes, and without running thru a dishwasher, I am a little worried so make hot water and wash dishes before use. Soap and towels are provided.
The guests next to us had four teenagers which were loud on occasion, not being bad just being teenagers. However having six kids, one reason for going someplace like that was to get away. That was disappointing. The house on the beach also had two teenagers. So could get busy on beach if all were there at once. We didn't see any wildlife , and I was looking., but the others said they did from a distance.
I hiked up the waterfall and was awesome. The kayaks were great and you could go to place by glacier and hike. My husband read books most the time and enjoyed that.The facilities were up a slope and was difficult to get to after it rained. Not bad but difficult.
So overall was great for me, except we had saved for this vacation and wanted secluded area away. So disappointed about other guests so close even though they were nice. I felt like the money we paid for place and transportation was going to be worth it for the isolated area but it didn't turn out like that. With that being said ...it. was amazing beautiful...and owner was very nice and answered any questions I had.
