This three bedroom vacation rental, built in 1904 by the Hirshey family - owners of the largest gold operation in Hope - was recently renovated for you. The cabin is secluded on a 1+ acre wooded lot less than five minutes from the heart of town, salmon filled streams, and wonderful hiking trails.
You will love the kitchen! Since travelers arrive at all hours of the day and night, leave at dawn and sleep until noon, we fill the cupboards with oatmeal, dried cherries, pecans, pancake mixes, breakfast bars, granola, cold cereals, bagels and cream cheese, Alaskan jams and syrups. . . and more. Enjoy the luxury of breakfast before you set out to explore. Return home and pull your camp chairs up to an evening fire in the stone fire pit.
Three inviting bedrooms are located upstairs. Two of the bedrooms each have a comfortable full bed, dresser, closet, and Alaskan art. The third bedroom has a bunk bed that children and fishermen can't seem to resist. Our senior citizen guests who don't want to climb the easy stairs report that the sofa sleepers in the living room are as comfortable as beds.
The bathroom is small but charming featuring a tub and shower and a vanity complete with shampoo, cream rinse, towels and a blow dryer. Laundry detergent and a washer and dryer are provided for free for the loads of laundry you need to catch up on. (You see, we really did try to think of everything). We do lend out fishing poles, provide a fish freezer, and you can cook your salmon on the grill.
Owners, Skip and Lisa, live next door. We will greet you and check you in, take you on a tour, teach you how to fish, or leave you to experience your own adventures - after all it is YOUR Alaskan experience and we want to you to experience the vacation of a lifetime!
