Cabin with amazing mountain views nestled above the Kenai River.
Keywords: This property is situated close to Upper Kenai and Russian Rivers, home to some of the the best Sockeye Salmon sport fishing in the world, and accessible to the finest Rainbow Trout fishery in Alaska.
A cozy, 850 square foot, private cabin awaits your arrival. It has one bedroom with a loft and sleeps 3-4 comfortably. You have available a full kitchen, BBQ grill, outdoor deck on the front and back with amazing mountain views!
While this area is known for the world class fishing, there is no limit to your options for other activities. There are multiple trails for hiking in the Chugach National Forest, float the Kenai River, kayak on Kenai Lake or take a horseback ride from a local outfitter. Opportunity abounds for wildlife viewing of moose, bear, osprey, eagle, owl, beaver and lynx.
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights Aug. 12-16, 2014 and this was our home away from home. It was so nice to return from a full day of sightseeing or hiking to this quiet little cabin to wind down. The French doors to the back deck looking out on the woods and mountain made it seem that we had a little piece of Alaska all to ourselves. The location was GREAT and only a mile and a half from the main road to stores, excursions, fishing. The lake was a just a short walk away and you could even take a short stroll to one of the major resorts and dine in their restaurant. This was especially nice after a long day.
We didn't spend a lot of time at the cabin and mostly used it for evening showers, sleeping and breakfast but it had everything we needed and was very well equipped an well kept. If you plan on cooking, it is best to purchase groceries in Anchorage (if you are coming through there) as the local stores are small and may not have everything you need. Even though we only used the downstairs bedroom, the upstairs loft had another double and twin bed which looked very comfy (but open to living area downstairs). The photos provided are a good representation of the cabin.
This cabin and its somewhat central location was a perfect fit for us as it made our trip to the Kenai Peninsula memorable as we ventured out to the ends of the road at Homer, Captain Cooks State Park north of Kenai, Seward and Whittier. Staying in this particular location made these manageable day trips with some hiking of the local trails. Words cannot do justice to the spectacular scenery around every corner. The weather was a little rainy but we came prepared due to the time of year and we didn't let a little rain slow us down.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin and in the area. Thank you for making it available to tourists! We are talking about returning with friends and family and will definitely check to see if the cabin will be available.
PS: Don't bring charcoal, it is a gas grill. We had a chuckle when we added our bag to the 2 others left by previous guests.
We rented both of Robb Bear's cabins for our stay in Alaska. My sister & I stayed in the smaller cabin for a week. It was a quiet retreat from all the young adults in the 'big house'. The place is just wonderful! One quite large bedroom and a loft with sleeping for 3. The beds were cozy! The cabin is just perfect for a small family or several single people. We were quite impressed when we turned on the heat and the floor heated, also. Have never experienced that before (of course, being from Phoenix, we don't have much need for it), but it tickled us to no end! As in the other house, everything to cook a meal is provided. And it is all very high quality. Plenty of towels- and a washer and dryer.
Thank you both very much & congrats on the upcoming birth of your new baby!
