Please DO NOT contact the front desk at the resort to rent this cabin or ask anything about it. It is privately owned & operated. Unfortunately, they will not be able to assist you.
It is a DRY cabin which means it does NOT have a BATHROOM or running water like all of the cabins on the resort property. However, it is completely renovated and looks and feels like a deluxe cabin with nice amenities. All other resort owned cabins are occupied by employees and are not available for rent.
Bathrooms are only a ONE minute walk from the cabin in the Pool House (7AM-12AM) $15 daily fee to use the showers and rock lake, Activity Center 9AM-12AM), Full Service Restaurant/Lounge (7AM-10PM). 3 outhouses are within a 30 second walk available 24 hours a day for that truly Alaskan experience.
FYI - We only rent the cabin for a 2 NIGHT MINIMUM.
So whether you want to book and stay only one night, we block the cabin for a 2 night stay. There is no discount for only staying one night. However, you won't have to check out by 11AM the next morning. It makes for a leisurely visit and you can stay a little later the next morning since the cabin has been reserved for the 2nd night.
Enjoy a truly once in a lifetime rustic Alaskan experience by staying in our adorable cabin on the resort property!
The cabin is the ONLY one available for rent at the resort! A one minute walk to everything and located next to the Moose Lodge. Heated with an oil heated stove keeping it warm and toasty even in the coldest temperatures! Comfy King Size Log Bed.
A 2 night stay is required for all bookings. The 30 year old cabin was completely renovated in 2009 and is cozy with a comfy king size log bed, 40 inch LCD TV & DVD player, 65 movie library, mini refrigerator & microwave, burl table & 2 chairs.
2 Spa Robes & 2 over-sized pool towels for the hot springs, 2 folding chairs for the deck, 2 luggage racks, oil heated stove to keep it warm even in the coldest Alaskan temperatures!
It is beautifully decorated with gorgeous aurora photos taken by Alaskan photographer Todd Salat 'The Aurora Chaser' on one wall. Photos of Dale Chihuly's Tacoma Glass Bridge taken by the cabin owners adorn the other wall.
Enjoy the afternoon sun on the deck of the cabin & watch Moose walk right by! The Moose photo was taken by the owner last summer while sitting on the deck reading a book.
