Overview

Palmer Chalet Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6-7

Rose Ridge Chalet sits on a south facing ridge near Palmer, Alaska. The full wall of windows allows a panoramic view of several mountains including Lazy Mountain, Pioneer Peak and most of the Chugach Range. Knik Glacier is nestled at the end of the valley. Surrounded by woods, wildlife to watch for include: moose, birds, squirrels, and maybe an occasional fox or black bear.

The chalet is two-story, with a large bedroom with one King, one Queen bed, a Klick Klack couch and a bath on the second level. The main level features another bedroom with one queen, one bath, and living/dining area. The full kitchen is stocked with all the items needed to cook your own meals if desired (except food). Coffee/tea and condiments stocked at the beginning of your stay. There is a washer/dryer in main level bath. For your enjoyment, there are movies and games. A patio outside with a BBQ grill is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our long summer evenings. This is a very peaceful location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for our beautiful stay in your beautiful house. We enjoyed your place very much and the view is perfect. I only wished we spent more time on your property but we had some obligations and a lot of site seeing of this spectacular state. I recommend your hospitality and your place to anyone. Thank you again for a fabulous stay (and black out shades, so strange the day light, always wanted to visit during this time of year)

Awesome!

Just as described! The first day we were there we we saw a cow moose and her calf in the front yard! The only thing I disliked was noise from the highway.

Beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly how advertised. It's so peaceful and quiet. The house is very well set up and would accommodate many (there was just 2 of us). I would recommend this to everyone and would definitely stay here again.

Airy home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

The Rose Chalet was a lovely jewel between Palmer and Wasilla surrounded by expansive mountain views. In fact, one side of the home is practically ‘exposed’ to the outside world because of its tall, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows that reach up to the second floor. We all gasped when we first walked inside. It’s worth the stay here just for that picturesque view.

We cooked every meal at the house and appreciated all the cookware and diningware available, making use of the stovetop, oven, and BBQ grill outside too. We even did dessert by the firepit, roasting Smores and watching the sun never go down.

One quirk about the home is that while it’s billed as a two-bedroom, the first bedroom on the ground floor is on the smaller-side and located right across from the kitchen (it felt more like a space for an office than bedroom), while the bedroom upstairs was almost too big with two beds, a queen and king.

Location-wise, you can’t do any better. We used Rose Chalet as a base to explore Eagle River, Hatcher Pass, and Matanuska Glacier (highly recommend Mica Guides)—all within an hour’s drive. We wish we could have spent more time here and were sad to leave.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your thoughts about the Chalet. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Our goal is to provide a "little piece of Alaska" on the outside and a "home away from home" on the inside and feedback on how we are doing is always appreciated. Hope you can visit us again sometime.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the chalet and the views were beautiful with the entire back side of the house all windows. Diane was great to deal with and always available for questions! The place was spotless and well maintained which made us feel so at home.

It was nice having the added bonus of the washer and dryer after travelling for 5 days prior to our stay.

As an added bonus we did see a moose outside the house with her baby.

Absolutely Gorgeous and Clean!!

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is beautiful and very well kept. The view is amazing and the privacy is wonderful! We enjoyed a few nights out under the starts watching the northern lights and having some family over to hang on the patio. Beds are very comfortable and we slept like babies! Everything about this place screams COZY!! The kitchen is fully stocked and ready to go! This place really felt like home. :)
