View the wildlife from the front deck and experience the peace and solitude this property has to offer. The chalet sits on the side of a mountain and you may never want to leave. But if you do, just travel six miles down the mountain to Eagle River where you will find shopping and groceries. There, you can access the Glenn Highway and in just ten miles arrive in the city of Anchorage.

The fresh air and scenery will take the stress away in short order. It is a short ride to escape the hustle and bustle of your day.

About The Owner

MY WIFE AND I PURCHASED THIS LOT IN '79'. THE HOUSE WAS BUILT THE FOLLOWING YEAR. IT WAS TRUE WILDERNESS BACK IN THOSE DAYS, BUT HAS BECOME MORE SETTLED OVER THE YEARS WITH THE ADVENT OF PAVEMENT, NATURAL GAS, AND ROAD MAINTENACE. THE AREA HAS REMAINED RURAL WITH LARGE LOT SIZES KEEPING IT OPEN AND APPEALING TO WILDLIFE.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1979

Why The Owner chose Eagle River

Amazing beyond words...

  • 5 of 5

My mom, her good friend and I stayed here for 10 nights in June 2014. I cannot begin to describe how wonderful this Log Cabin Chalet was. Before we ever arrived, John was personable and easy to stay in contact with. As we arrived, we were blown away. The beauty was incredible, more than 360 degrees of "awe." We stepped into the cabin and immediately felt at home. The first floor had a gorgeous sitting area, one bedroom, one bathroom and a full laundry room! Up to the main floor boasted a large family lounging area, a dining room, full kitchen, a bedroom and another full bathroom. There was a door leading out back to another deck with views looking back up the hill. From the family room, stairs led up to the loft and the 3rd bedroom. The cabin was clean, cozy and the perfect escape from life for 10 days. John, we loved your little note on the Kirkland coffee can "The good stuff is in the freezer" where we found fresh Kaladi coffee. (As one who lived in AK for 4 years, I LOVED Kaladi coffee!!) There were condiments galore in the cupboards, refrigerator and freezer...a common theme in Alaska. We left a few little goodies for the next person, too.

While we were there we traveled to JBER base, Anchorage, Palmer, Wasilla, Talkeetna, Girdwood and Seward. We highly recommend taking the train on a trip. From experience, my favorite was the train to Seward.

We highly recommend John's Log Cabin Chalet! We cannot wait to come back and do our girls trip again!! Got openings for 2016, John? :)

Thank you so much for your hospitality. It really means a lot.

Outstanding Absolutely Wonderful Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 fantastic nights in July and hated to leave! This chalet was the best VRBO rental we have ever stayed in and made our trip to AK all the more enjoyable this summer. The chalet is beautiful inside and out, spacious, peaceful, quiet, private and has fantastic views of Eagle River and the surrounding mountains. It is only about 15 minutes from Anchorage and very close to many trails in Chugach State Park and other attractions. Also the town of Eagle River with well stocked supermarkets, Walmart and even a move theater is only a few minutes away. A mother moose and calf were grazing right outside the window in the sideyard our first morning there at breakfast to our delight! The chalet is stocked better than any other rental place we have ever stayed with every amenity! The upstairs loft bedroom is lovely! The covered grill and patio in the back were great also. The property is extremely clean and beautifully maintained inside and out. We cannot thank you enough for making this lovely home available to us.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home and views! We loved and used both decks. Great attention to detail! We grilled or ate dinner each night here because we wanted to enjoy the views after our day of sight seeing. My teenagers enjoyed playing badminton in the yard. And we did see a moose out by the shed! I would definitely recommend this property.

OUTSTANDING Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mountain Home with friends and what an outstanding choice it was! The house is gorgeous inside and out, well stocked and very spacious. We were lucky enough to have a very nice black bear visit a couple moring, what an awesome site it was.

Upon our return home, not even enough time had gone by to get back in route and here comes a little package in the mail.....I forgot a pair of earrings and Ellen was kind enough to mailed the back to me.

THANK YOU!! :-)

You will never be disappointed staying at the Mountain House!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mountain House for 3 nights last month and it is the NICEST home we have ever rented! Beautiful inside and out, with plenty of space for our family of 6. Wonderfully equipped -- fluffy big towels, tons of staples and great coffee available in the kitchen, many board games and even badminton in the yard, super comfortable beds. The views are gorgeous and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. We were sad to leave and would happily return to stay for a longer vacation! Thanks for an amazing time and a great home base for part of our Alaska trip.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is just a delightful place to stay. Clean, spacious, located in a beautiful setting, so well equiped, comfortable, and private. The owners are very easy to deal with. This was by far our favorite rental in a 10 day trip in Alaska. We did not want to leave.

I will point on thing out it you are renting it.... if you want face clothes take your own, as it is European style with none available. Not a mark against it .. but you might want to know that in advance. It is a 5 star spot. Certanily would return.
