About the property

Private Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)


Three chalets: The Steller Jay chalet is calendered and booked here. The Wild Rose chalet at VRBO 150525; the Eagles Aerie chalet at VRBO 462399

For COMPLETE info and area attractions see us on Facebook - Spruce Moose Chalets - and our website

The three chalets are each private and secluded on five acres of hillside among spruce, hemlock, birch and willow trees over-looking Trail Lake in the CHUGACH NATIONAL FOREST. Each has it's own hot tub and will accommodate parties for 1-22.

CENTRALLY LOCATED in the middle of all there is to do on the KENAI PENINSULA:

15 minutes to Cooper Landing; 30 to Seward; 1 hour to Whittier, Prince William Sound, Alyeska, and Soldotna & the Lower Kenai; 2.5 hours to Homer; and 90 minutes from Anchorage.

Relax surrounded by snow-capped mountains, overlooking turquoise-colored Trail Lake.

The world-famous KENAI & RUSSIAN Rivers are just minutes away - world class fishing for salmon and trout, or rafting and bear viewing.

KENAI FJORDS NATIONAL PARK, EXIT GLACIER & HARDING ICEFIELD, and saltwater fishing on Resurrection Bay are also only minutes away.

Superb HIKING/mountain BIKING trails through lush forests to alpine meadows blanketed with wildflowers beside crystal clear snow-melt streams, waterfalls, ponds and lakes surrounded by glaciated mountain majesty are minutes away.

Our beautifully appointed, comforts-of-home-and-then-some chalet is your ideal home base for adventures on the Kenai Peninsula.


SNOWMOBILING, Nordic and Alpine SKIING and BOARDING just out the door for your daytime adventures in the world famous Chugach Mountains back-country.

Relax watching the sunrise and alpenglow paint the mountains the full palate of Alaskan winter colors.

Soothe your winter aches in the HOT TUB under a dazzling star-lit sky- and if you're lucky, catch the NORTHERN LIGHTS. The hot tub is the best place to catch seasonal meteor showers and the aurora away from city lights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful chalet. The views are unbelievable. Everything is so nicely decorated and comfortable. You’ve thought of everything to make our stay truly relaxing and enjoyable. Today we went kayaking around Fox Island. It was raining, but we still had a lot of fun. Tomorrow we hope to hike Exit Glacier & Harding Icefield and relax at the chalet. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality.

Great place to stay. Fully equipt!

  • 5 of 5

we had a wonderful stay for Christmas. It was even decorated with carols playing when we arrived. So warm and cozy and plenty of things to do outside. Only downside is that its pretty expensive after you add up all the fees and taxes.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time! Unfortunately, this may be the last winter we are open. Our winter rates avg 50% lower than summer, but we have much fewer rental days and the operational costs are higher. VRBO has now added a 4-9% fee to the renter to use their site and it's cut into our already slim winter margin, and bookings thru their site are down. We are in the hole this winter for the first time in 8 years. Folks that stay with us love the place in winter, but unless we can find more interest, it will not make sense to stay open.

Wonderful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving at the cabin and it was great! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our Thanksgiving dinner, the beds and rooms were all comfortable, living room was cozy with a great view of the lake and the hot tub was an added bonus! We spent some time cross country skiing, back country skiing was not far away and we drove into Seward to visit the Sea Life museum. We would absolutely recommend this cabin!

Serene, Alaska relaxation at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

Three levels of fun and relaxation, and the hot tub with an awesome display of the Northern Lights was a highlight. The views from the windows upstairs are magical. I came away feeling like I wanted to live there. The driveway is a bit steep and there is a jack-knife turn to get up to the cabin, so if you have a big truck, good luck. We will be making this a family holiday tradition.

Fantastic chalet with breath taking views!

  • 5 of 5

I am a travel agent. You will not be sorry for booking this chalet in Moose Pass - only 30 min north of Seward. Nice, quiet setting with unbelievable views, specially from hot tub. What else can a person ask for! The owner has 3 rentals, this one is the oldest, but has a perfect floor plan to enjoy the views. If I could, I would add a couple pictures, but don't see an option to add any.

The house was spotless and huge. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of room. Separate living areas on the 1st and 2nd floors give everyone the space they need. The house is well equipped. Importantly, bottled water (water cooler) is provided which is fabulous as the sulfur smell of the water is tough to deal with. 8 gallons were provided for our 3 night stay which was more than sufficient but more was available had we needed it. The view is just as pictured. Absolutely gorgeous. Th house sits on a hill above the Seward Highway so there is some traffic noise but it certainly isn't an interstate as there are only 2 lanes. Access to the pristine lake is right across the highway and down a short steep embankment.

The on-site property managers met us for check-in, showed us everything we needed to know and were extremely helpful setting up a generator when there was an area wide power outage. They were available by cell our entire stay.

We used this house as a home base for day trips to Seward which is 28mi away. The ride there is beautiful and quick. The town of Moose Pass itself does not offer anything to travelers other than a motel and super small convenience store (no gas) but that was fine with us.

The house is in a group of 3 homes all situated so that, while another home is visible, you really feel like you are removed from the world.

We would love to come back to Steller Jay and recommend it 100%.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! Our therapeutic "Sulfur Springs" is the best kept secert of Moose Pass! The amount varies throughout the year - at times not noticable., so not guaranteed, but we understand the content is good for you- both externally and internally! However, it doesn't make good coffee- so thus provided drinking water. We hope you come again!

It was beautiful! Owners thought of everything for a comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was great! My family of six needed a comfortable place to enjoy Alaska and this chalet was perfect. It was so beautiful! The view of the lake and trees from our chalet was gorgeous. It was relaxing and was an easy drive to Seward for the excursions offered there. My husband and I would definitely book the chalet again for a longer stay!
