We truly enjoyed our stay ... and Paul and Virginia were such a delight and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the one bedroom cabin and it everything we needed was there ... and the place was spotless! We enjoyed meeting Paul and Virginia and they are wonderful hosts. If visiting Denali and Anchorage, this is a great midway location. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need! The only recommendation I would make is for a larger TV for those that want to just 'stay in' and relax. We had a great time and look forward to another visit!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Willow Creek Inn is the ONLY place my husband and I will stay. The owners Paul & Virginia

are so welcoming. We have stayed at each cabin they offer, the both sit right on Willow Creek.

It is absolutely beautiful. They both sit back in the trees to give you that private, serene feel.

Every time I go, I never want to leave. In fact I added an extra day this last time we went!

The cabins are stocked with anything you would need, from books, to games, to towels. My husbands

favorite thing is the wood stoves!

I would highly recommend Willow Creek Inn to anyone looking for a remarkable place to stay.

Great cottage in the woods - convenient to fishing and sight-seeing

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay in Alaska. The cottage is clean and perfect for a couple. It has everything you need to do some cooking. If you want to eat out, you really need to go to Wasilla.

We recommend the local guide, Mike Coughlin. We caught so many rainbow trout in 2 days, we lost count.

The cottage is right on Willow Creek and if you like solitude, this is the place for you.

It is also convenient to lots of sightseeing:

We rode to the Independence Gold Mine through Wasilla. We heard the Hatcher's Pass road through Willow is a little difficult to drive. Denali is about 2 1/2 hours away. We did not make the drive, but we had an amazing view from Willow on the Parks Highway.

Some other drives we made were to Mr. Alyeska and the Turnaround Arm - also amazing and then to the Matunuska Glacier. The only thing I missed at the cottage was no Wi-Fi, but the Willow library is convenient.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. It was good to meet both of you & we're glad you liked our place & did so well fishing. Mike Coughlin has a great fish guiding business & makes it very enjoyable for all his clients. We also recommend him as a guide. Also glad you were able to see so many of the sites this area has to offer and beyond.
