COPPER RIVER RETREAT

Chickaloon Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 bath + Detached Unit, (Sleeps 1-9 total))

Welcome to Copper River Retreat

The property is located two hundred miles east of Anchorage and 100 miles north of Valdez in the heart of the beautiful Copper River Valley. Copper River Retreat is set in the small community of Copper Center which is accessed by the Glenn and Richardson highways. Copper River Retreat is a special retreat for couples, friends or families. We offer something for those seeking fun and adventure and for those seeking a little rest and relaxation.

All the cabins are beautiful, rustic Alaskan and were hand built by the owner using local materials, which includes the use of burl logs. Each cabin is a single story unit for easy access and is located in a picturesque, park like setting surrounded by Aspen and Spruce trees on three acres of private property.

Burl House is a large one bedroom, one bathroom cabin, including a kitchen/dining area with refrigerator and microwave. The living room has handcrafted built ins, two sofas and a loft. The bedroom has a full size bed. Cabin accommodates up to six people.

If you need more space please contact me for renting details on one of my other lovely cabins.

Copper River Retreat is centrally located near many local activities which include; hiking, wild life viewing, berry picking, photography and fish wheel viewing. There are several guided services also available nearby including; rafting, four wheeling, dog sled rides, jet boat rides and scenic flight seeing.

In season we can offer some of the world’s best salmon fishing and hunting. You can find most anything you need within 10 miles of our property at one of the several gas stations, mini markets, museums, gift shops, and restaurants in the area. Within a short driving distance there is an authentic Alaskan Roadhouse, Wrangle St. Elias National Park headquarter complex and the Trans Alaska Pipeline.

I would love to be your host and share my forty-five years of Alaska experience with you. I will be onsite to accommodate any guest needs, answer questions and provide ideas of how you too can experience Alaska.

CALL OF THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 of 5
Since boyhood I'd dreamed of the 'Great Northwest' and for the last 4 years I've visited the Copper River Retreat in Copper Center,Alaska. Whether it was the arrival to a Moose crossing right in front of us as we approached the property or the Bear Hide tanning in a small log barn or the call of the coyotes and wolves at night or simply the roar of the mighty Klutina River nearby, but not too close, I knew I had truly arrived in the Great Northwest. I myself was born approx 10 miles from the home of Daniel Boone and Kit Carson yet having arrived in Copper Center I knew I was in the heart of the 'Mountain Man Country' of the great Northwest. The proprieter and his wife have created a truly Alaskan experience. From hiking , exploring, hunting or and a host of other endeavors one can hardly choose what to do next . The fishing , World Class, and delicious . The Beauty is one can also relax and do absolutely nothing if that is your preference. I slept like a baby. The retreat itself is a step back to the era of the early explorers with the exceptions of all the conveniences of the 21st century. The host himself is a world class hunter/ fisherman/ mountain man , a virtual Jerimiah Johnson who has built three cabins and added the perfect Alaskan artisan touch to the retreat , he can also direct you to a number of perfect activities to enhance your Northwest vacation. I've worked from Anchorage for more than the last 20 years yet had not truly experienced Alaska until my arrival in Copper Center. Do yourself a favor,... Don't miss it,...

My family truly enjoyed our stay in Dan's beautifully handcrafted, clean, and well equipped cabin. He was a very flexible, friendly, helpful host and his location is perfect for touring the beautiful road to Valdez. Thank you Dan for a great stay.

WHAT A GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Dan's cabin was the vacation of a lifetime. It is like camping out in the beautiful Alaska wilderness, with all the convienences of home. Plus grand hospitality of the owners.

The setting of the cabins is complete relaxation, you hear nothing but the rustling trees and birds. And yet centrally located to so many activities that we could not finish in two weeks. And that is in addtion to the great fishing - you can have a splendid time even if you dont fish (like us). The cabins are two miles from the Wrangall Park headquarters, with nature tours and learning experiences.
There is great river rafting, flightseeing to the majestic mountains, glacier hiking and climbing, and endless hiking. Or an easy drive to Valdez to cruise to see the Columbia glacier, and view and TOUCH the Worthington Glacier and numerous waterfalls on the way. The view everywhere is spectacular.

And Dan is a great host and tour guide. He tops off a great holiday !!!!

IT WAS JUST SO GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
I recently moved to Alaska from New Hampshire and spent my first month in the Retreat's Burl House. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! The tranquility, privacy, comfort and uniqueness of the Burl House and its setting is beyond description. Not only was it a wonderful experience for me but my two Dalmatian's thought that they had moved to doggie heaven. If you want to experience the "real Alaska" there is not better place. Copper Center is a wonderful little village with a great history to match. Dan is a real Alaskan who knows something about everything. He can talk about fishin, huntin and just about everything else. He was my host and became my friend. Whether you make this your Alaska home for a night, a week or a month...you'll be very glad that you did. You'll spend some time in a very special place that I consider a true work of art- Alaska style and comfort at its finest. And you'll never forget it!
