What a wonderful place to kick back and relax!

  • 5 of 5
This place has everything you need and is truly a home away from home. It is located close to Anchorage, Palmer and Wasilla. The gourmet kitchen's window and outside deck have the best views of Canoe lake and surrounding mountains. Our family loved the fact that there were toys for children and adults alike; badminton, canoes, paddle boat, fishing gear, bikes, etc plus an extensive library of wonderful books by Alaskan authors.

The Wildlife Conservation Center near Gridwood is a must see if you want to look at Brown Bears, eagles, moose, muskox and all the other large and small animals native to Alaska. Watch for Beluga whales as you drive down that way. You can get up close to glaciers and visit an old mining town as well as ride a tram, fish the rivers and lakes, tour the small towns or just drive and marvel at the magnificent scenery. Would definitely recommend this home and look forward to coming back for another visit to Alaska. Thanks:-)

All of it

  • 5 of 5
When I asked my grandchildren (and children) what was the best experience in Alaska, the answer was always ALL OF IT!! We had a nine day vacation for 12 people and we all agreed it was the best vacation ever. Geri was great in helping plan activities for all to enjoy, and sharing what were the must do activities and the weather cooperated perfectly. We rented the entire house and our grandchildren who do not live close to each other had a wonderful bonding time. I rent VRBO a lot and this was the most well-stocked house we have ever stayed. We all want to return to Alaska. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.

The perfect place to experience Alaska

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home for five nights with our family. There was eleven of us and this home provided all of us plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the rental. It is well stocked with everything needed to experience a relaxing and restful stay with family. My dad uses a walker and he easily moved around the main floor which is spacious and comfortable. My favorite part of the house was the deck with it's beautiful flowers, view of the lake and amazing mountains. It gives you a sense of peace and calm. The kids in our family loved the upstairs TV area which had a great choice of movies. The bonfire are, lake toys (canoe, kayaks, tubes, fishing rods, floating dock) kept us all busy. This rental is in a great location being that the state of Alaska is so large. We were able to drive to many areas for the day from this location. Geri was a huge help in planning and answering our questions. She has a huge love for Alaska and truly enjoyed sharing her beautiful home with us. We hope to return again someday. Five Stars!!!!!

Perfect for Large Groups!

  • 5 of 5
Canoe Lake Chalet was the perfect location for our family vacation. We rented both the Eagle's Nest and the Bear's Den for our group of 15. These two areas provided ample room for everyone and we were not crowded at all! Many thanks to you and Kevin for sharing this wonderful home with our family. Your knowledge of Alaska and the many "must do/see" things was very informative and helpful. Thanks again and God Bless!

AWESOME!!We traveled with a group of 15 people with a wide range of ages, from 75 to 9 years of age. The Chalet and Kevin and Geri met the needs of all of us. Kevin and Geri were fantastic hosts and made us feel at home, very helpful with anything we needed from adventure advise to fishing advise to just some good R&R for others. The location of the Chalet is perfect for our group, you can fish out the back door but a short drive to get some food or groceries for an outdoor cooking, a short drive in any direction will also put you in the lap of adventure (scenery, fishing, hiking, sight seeing, shopping, good food, did I mention fishing). My son and I caught rainbow trout and grayling out of canoe lake every day and the other children loved the canoe's and paddle boat. Thanks Kevin and Geri for letting us share your home and your life for a short while, the memories will last forever. Keep in touch and FISH ON!!!

Owner's Response: It was wonderful having your family come stay with us. We immediately bonded with you all and had such fun getting to know each of you. It was great to see how much fun you all had at the chalet, on the lake or venturing out on the trips and tours in the region. Everyone was so loving and polite and took such great care of the chalet. We truly felt like we made new friends and hope you return again!!! You were such a blessing to us.
