About Janet

We have had the awesome privilege of living in Soldotna for 30 years. After raising 4 children and retiring from the fire department as a paramedic/engineer, we are loving this season in our lives.......... fishing, golfing, and enjoying grandchildren. We also enjoy helping our guests plan their Alaskan adventure!

Janet purchased this townhome in 1990

Why Janet chose Kenai Peninsula

Soldotna is a perfect location for your Alaskan adventure! Whether your desire is to fish or hike or kayak or go birding, we are at the center of it all! Just a 3 hour drive from the Anchorage airport, Homer is 70 miles down the road, Seward is 90 miles and only 1 mile from downtown Soldotna to your door!

What makes this townhome unique

Standing on the deck, there is not another building in sight. Just the bird filled trees, the beautiful Kenai River with all of it's abundant fish, and the woods & the tops of the mountains towards Anchorage. Great hiking trails right outside your door or take advantage of the paved bike path that goes right into Soldotna. It is common to see eagles & moose along with other wildlife.

Outstanding place---- highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

I do a ton of research and this was our third July in a row to the Soldotna area. The first two trips we had okay places to stay, nothing disaster but the Kenai River Retreat was a blast. We thoroughly enjoyed the shore access and all the available equipment. We had our own rods but theirs looked to be in good shape. Nets, coolers, freezers, waders, although you don't really towade in because the bank positions you right in front of the sockeye. We broke pliers, we borrowed theirs. Marc and Janet are both genuinely invested in helping you have a great time. The condo was just as the pictures represent. It was clean. All the appliances worked great. The oven did decide to not come on for some snap cookies I was obsessed with baking soooo I baked them in Janet's kitchen. HA! She insisted. I relented. Who can resist a cookie. Janet had the repairman in the next am and it was fixed. I liked the cross breeze from the deck screen door, flowing through to the back bedroom window. We were concerned it might be too hot. Not the case. The queen bed was comfortable and I would consider it a bigger than average queen. I rarely book anything besides a king but this worked well. I thought worse case, we will use the fold out sofa. We love the neighborhood area they are in. Not too far out of downtown Soldotna, about a 5 minute drive to Safeway, Fred Meyer a little further. So, we will definitely repeat stay here for another 10 nights in another year or two. The only recommendation I would have is a water filtration system. It took us a couple of days to get used to the slight sulphur smell (well water) you get when you first turn on the faucet. We buy bottled water anyway so it really didn't affect us that much. Bottom line. I know they have a ton of returning guests and we will be one of them.

We had anticipated having easy access to the river and a full complement of fishing gear available. We were disappointed to find out it was only rods and waders and not full gear, including lures/hooks, and that we had to walk down 60 steps and traverse a narrow walking path through overgrown weeds and wetlands (the weeds covered the boardwalk at one point and we couldn't see where we were walking). The kitchen is not well supplied. It lacked some basic supplies, including measuring cups and a spatula/scraper. There is not "165 feet of private bank fishing"; it was closer to 20 feet, although this may be because the river was high. The wifi is slow and hard to access. When we asked for a recommendation for a salmon guide, we were directed to the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce. The host was very kind, friendly, and welcoming, but overall I'd have to say we were disappointed.

Loved it & would definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights & used this place for day trips to Homer & Coopers Landing. Great central location, very quiet & we fished off the riverbank below the unit & walked to the park down the street. Comfortable unit, great views, very friendly hosts & only a couple minutes from town & stores & restaurants. Laundry too which was helpful. We would highly recommend this homey place to others!!

Stayed at the Sourdough unit for three nights and was one of the best places that we stayed on our two week vacation. The unit was perfect for the two of us and Janet and Marv were great folks and their hospitality just added to our great time spent there. This place is perfectly located for all of your adventures on the Kenai Peninsula. Having traveled all over the state from Denali to Seward and Homer, without a doubt on our next trip to Alaska we plan on spending all of our time at this location.

Excellent place to stay in Alaska!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in May and could not have been more pleased with the facility. The facility was immaculate and very comfortable. Marv and Janet were so kind and welcoming and were there if we needed anything but just let us do our thing. Beautiful view of the Kenai river and very centrally located to anything in Soldotna. We fished the Kasilof river that week and it was about 11-12 mile easy drive. The owners were so nice they offered to let us come back and clean up on our last day of fishing prior to departing for flight in Anchorage. Check out was noon but no one else was checking in after us so they were very accomodating. We will definitely return to Kenai River Retreat and have no hesitation about recommending this facility. It was very quite and the washer/dryer came in very handy!! We had a very pleasant stay and could not have asked for a better place!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay and the owners were very nice and helpful. We arrived late in the evening and the owners helped us to order a pizza and get it delivered. I would highly recomend this property and would stay again the next time I visit Alaska. Soldotna is a nice town and this property is very close to town. We also traveled to Homer Alaska which is only a day trip from this property.
