Why Jane chose Soldotna
Jane has owned a Kenai river view cabin in Funny River since 1996. David and Jane upgraded to this beautiful home ON the Kenai River in Winter 2009. We stay here for the second two weeks of July every year.
What makes this house unique
Moose in the yard, eagles overhead, ducks and gulls swooping in on small fish. The fishing for king salmon, red salmon, silver salmon, and rainbow trout is FANTASTIC! The house is at the end of a road with only a half dozen houses - very quiet. You can hear the river flow from the sunny deck.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time again. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautifual home. We caught some fish and had a blast sight seeing including the bear across the river. Hope to come back again.
