Rose Ridge Chalet sits on a south facing ridge near Palmer, Alaska. The full wall of windows allows a panoramic view of several mountains including Lazy Mountain, Pioneer Peak and most of the Chugach Range. Knik Glacier is nestled at the end of the valley. Surrounded by woods, wildlife to watch for include: moose, birds, squirrels, and maybe an occasional fox or black bear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for our beautiful stay in your beautiful house. We enjoyed your place very much and the view is perfect. I only wished we spent more time on your property but we had some obligations and a lot of site seeing of this spectacular state. I recommend your hospitality and your place to anyone. Thank you again for a fabulous stay (and black out shades, so strange the day light, always wanted to visit during this time of year)

Just Breath taking!

For many places, the pictures on a web site are much better than they are once you get there. However, in the case of Rose Ridge....the pictures do not do justice to the beauty of the place. If the view doesn't get you as you pull in, wait until you get inside the place. We stayed at the Chalet and found it to have everything we needed, including soap and shampoo in the shower! There was some food in the pantry and refrigerator as advertised and we did very little shopping after we got there. If you are near Palmer, Alaska, do NOT miss this place for an overnight stay. Simply spectacular! A great place to rest and relax!

This was a fabulous place to stay. The vistas are breathtaking and having a whole house to yourself is great, especially for a family. Hosts were easy to get a hold of but were not intrusive at all. Very comfy with all the comforts of home. Would love to stay there again.

We loved it here!!

As I wrote in the guest book at the Chalet, Diane has thought of everything, right downt to the junk drawer in the kitchen... We couldnt have felt more at home anywhere else! The Chalet was super duper clean, like no one else had ever stayed there before us...Not only would I recommend this property to friends, I have!!

This property is the perfect "hub" for traveling this region of AK... I highly recommend this property for your stay in AK.

The beautiful chalet was like a home away from home for us during our stay. We loved the views and the accomodations were perfect for us! We enjoyed watching an owl hunt from the living room and we got to see a few moose traveling by too! We will definitely stay again on our next visit to Alaska!

A lovely chalet unit with a great view. It is in excellent condition with all the amenities for a comfortable stay. A quiet, secluded location but close enough to the main roads to allow easy exploration of the Mat-Su valley. The innkeeper, Diane, was quite friendly and helpful. The chalet is a separate bulding from her home, so you have a really private location for your stay. The breakfast part of the "B&B" is a well stocked kitchen, with everything you need to prepare one or two breakfasts for yourself. (If you stay longer, you might want to pick up some additional items, as the kitchen isn't restocked daily.) This is a wonderful setting that is superior to your typical motel "suite". A true bargain for what you get. Highly recommended!
