PRIVATE NEIGHBORHOOD, MOMENTS FROM ALL THE ACTION!

Denali House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Become a neighbor!

I am so thankful for the wonderful people who have stayed at my little place. They have been fun to meet - and have treated it with such respect it still feels new. I appreciate that...since David and I put so much love and work into this place.

Please look at the calendar before contacting me. I only have the one apartment and if any of the available dates can work for you, do let me know!

The Denali Park Place is a 900sf apartment on the top floor over our office/garage.

Placed at the back of our 5 acre parcel of land, the setting is quite peaceful and private – although the sound of sled dogs howling isn't unusual. Caribou, moose, snow shoe hare, and perhaps even a grizzly bear might be sighted from the array of windows and Denali National Park with it's wildlife is only minutes away.

The view out of any of the windows frames beautiful mountains, and the granite breakfast bar is a perfect place to write postcards while enjoying the scenery. There is plenty of room to lounge in the large living room with two couches offering wonderful views and lots of natural light.

Just a few minutes away (literally), Denali National Park offers visitors a variety of tours. The Visitors Center and the Murie Science and Learning Center are a couple of my favorite local places to go. The displays are great, as are the free movies and lectures, and I especially like sitting in the big chairs in front of the 'wood' stove and reading. This is the kind of activity you miss if your visit is rushed - and yet will be most memorable if you take the time to do it!

In addition to the park and visitors center, there are excellent restaurants, tours, and gift shops located near by.

Should you want to spend some time lounging at home, there's a stereo system and a DVD player with 52' television.

You will need your own transportation to visit the area.

Check out our Three Night Special rate - come be a neighbor!

Guestbook comments from the owner
I named my business Raven About Alaska because it is what I always seem to be doing, and this summer has been great so far! Everyone loves the place and I already have a list of new friends to visit when I go south next winter. Very fun and I love that since most people are staying three days I get to visit alittle!

RAVEN ABOUT ALASKA (my business name, because it is what I do!)

David and I met 1983 while commercial fishing on Kodiak Island. We bought our first fishing operation a couple years later and bought remote property in 1989. While Kodiak's Uganik Bay is still home, after commercially fishing for 24 years I decided to try something else. One of my current jobs is as a tour guide in Denali National Park. David is still fishing for salmon and halibut on Kodiak Island so we commute between two of the most beautiful places in the world. I am in love with Alaska, heart and soul. The artwork and books in my house and the Denali Park Place are part of my personal collection of favorites. If you like history just ask me about the Alaskan flag I have that came from the person who designed it... or the autographed book by the very first person to lead a successful climb up Mount McKinley in 1914! Sometimes I think the only reason I want to provide a vacation rental is to show off this place I love so dearly... Alaska.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

In 1997 we went on a vacation that changed our lives. Living in Kodiak, we thought it would be a cool winter vacation to go to Nome to see the finish of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. I became obsessed. Poor David! First I worked as a volunteer with the Iditarod, then I got a job training racing huskies, and then I wanted land near the huskies I trained. In 2002 I did the 1049 mile race across Alaska, finishing the Iditarod in 14 days with a wonderful team of dogs. My book, 'Running with Champions: A Midlife Journey on the Iditarod Trail', has been very successful and once again changed my life's direction (and David's!). We bought land in the interior of Alaska and now call both Kodiak and Denali home.

The community of Denali borders Denali National Park and Preserve. Minutes away from this secluded property are all the amenities of Denali National Park - tours, restaurants, hiking, shopping, wildlife viewing. There is something for everybody. My dogs were from a winning Iditarod team, so if you are interested in getting to know some retired champions, they will be more than willing to accommodate you! This really is a pleasant place. Become a neighbor and see for yourself...

I also supply some of my Heirloom Sourdough Starter so you can make yourself some delicious hotcakes from real Alaskan sourdough! It's easy - you'll love it! I consider myself a sourdough genealogist (!) because I am tracking the history and writing a book on this particular heirloom sourdough. Read about it on one of my sites - the history is fantastic and the taste is even better!

We LOVED our time at Denali Park Place!!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough GREAT things about Lisa as our host and the time we spent in her guest unit. She was so warm and engaging from the moment I first inquired online. Booking was simple, the directions and suggestions she sent were easy to follow, and the guest space exceeded our expectations! It's set in the back of the property so very private, quiet, and surrounded by nature. The unit is VERY spacious, comfortable, and was spotless when we arrived. All kinds of amenities - everything we needed and then some. The washer/dryer was a huge plus since we packed lightly for two weeks on the road. We especially appreciated the assortment of Alaska videos and books, and took advantage of them as we got used to the many extra hours of daylight. We have energetic boys (ages 9 and 11) who enjoyed the outdoor space, and LOVED having Bronte and Vincent (retired sled dogs) in the garden to pet and adore. As a family, we were fascinated with the Iditarod as it is the far extreme of what we're used to in California :) It was such fun to have Lisa answer our questions with her direct experience (my husband and I flipped coins for "turns" with her book) and my son will NEVER forget when Lisa got Jeff King, champion musher, on the phone to speak with him. Awesome in ALL ways, we will never forget our time at Denali Park Place. Highly recommend!!

Amazing Views and Friendly owner

  • 5 of 5
The most amazing place I have stayed! Not only were the views SPECTACULAR out of every window, but it had all the amenities that we needed. It was clean, well-maintained, comfy, and cozy. Lisa was wonderful! She even had sourdough starter for us to make our own pancakes!! delicious!!!
Lisa gave great recommendations on the Denali National Park. We followed the suggestions and were not let down.
The views from the every window were breathtaking mountainscapes.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this rental.
100% worth every penny we paid.
if we make it to AK again, we will make sure this rental is on our list. =-)

Wonderful Denali Park Location

  • 5 of 5
Ideal location when visiting Denali National Park - convenient but private and away from the "tourist crowd". Very easy check in/out. (We almost didn't meet Lisa, but we are glad we did!) The apartment is just as pictured, and impeccably clean and well maintained. Be sure to bring some flour and baking powder so you can enjoy pancakes made with the sourdough starter found in the refrigerator. At the end of the day we enjoyed the videos of Alaska that are provided. And we loved the friendly sled dogs. We found pictures of Bronte in her Iditarod win! We hope to return one day!

Excellent!

My daughter and I loved our stay here so much. Very clean, comfortable and it felt like home. It is a beautiful piece of property with great views and her dogs Bronte and Vincent are a bonus. Lisa was easy to get in touch with and great detailed directions to the place. If I am fortunate enough to visit this beautiful state again, this is where I want to stay.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
Nothing but good things to say. Very attractive, roomy and clean. Parking right at the door (walk up a flight of steps). Well furnished. Tucked away from the highway---pay attention to the directions and you will get there fine. Nice view. Real quick drive to Denali entrance. Lisa says she gives it 20", but without rushing, I was getting there in 10" or so. Had two teens and spouse and we had plenty of room. The dogs were very friendly, as was Lisa, of course. Would definitely return.

We enjoyed our time here tremendously! An incredible find for us. A great space; a great location. Very convenient to Denali. We had a very peaceful, relaxing stay with all the comforts of home - in the Alaskan wilderness. We would recommend this place without hesitation!
