A Perfect Mix Of Rugged Comfort
Submitted: May 25, 2012
Stayed: September 2011
I've stayed here on multiple occasions, and in both of the more established cabins (The newest Cabin was still under construction while I was there) The cabins are a perfect mix of skill and time, and you can really tell that Woody has poured his heart, soul, and craftsmanship into these buildings.
I've found that this location is a fantastic "jumping off" point for anyone wanting to be close to the outdoors, as it offers fantastic access to the Matanuska Glacier, as well as great sight-seeing of Dall Sheep, and the like. (Also, during the right part of the year, you can even see the migration of the Caribou from nearby!)
What really impressed me about these accommodations as compared to other "roadside" cabins, is just that - You are right off of, but can't see the road! It's brilliant! It's a wonderful feeling to be able to pull out into a driveway, and collect your things, but then be right on the Glenn-Allen when you need to pop off for an adventure. Though you can still hear the road, as the Glenn-Allen is MUCH less trafficked than it's corresponding Parks highway, I really didn't find the proximity and road noise to be an issue, or deterrent.
This brings me to the last, and best part - the owners. Both Wendy and Woody are fantastic individuals, full of life, and stories. Though I didn't expect to have such engaged owners when I stayed my first time here, it was really these two that keep me coming back to the area. - They're great to talk to, reasonable, and will go the extra mile to make you feel like part of the mountain.
Thanks for the GREAT stay Wendy and Woody!
