This is a very private 2700 sq ft waterfront home on the Kenai River at the end of the road in Cooper Landing, Alaska. We have 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We are located on the low-bank side of the river just below the Kenai River Princess Lodge, just up stream from the Upper Kenai River rapids. Our 400 yd. long gravel bar is a favorite stop for most of the guides for Trout.
The king sized master bedroom has a private bath, sitting area, balcony and a spectacular mountain view. The two Queen sized bedrooms have beautiful river views. There is a bunk room down stairs as well as two futon doubles in the upstairs game room. There is a full sized washer and dryer. The granite kitchen offers full sized appliances and is fully equipped to make your gourmet fish dinners, lunches and breakfast. We have a full sized freezer in the garage to keep all your fish and there is a cleaning table with water out by the rivers edge for fish cleaning. We provide a Food Saver vacuum packer, bring bags
Fishing in the Area: There is a wealth of things to do in the area. Fishing is probably #1 and fly fishing for Rainbow out back is great and there are a wealth of guides for all types of float trips down the river. The Russian River confluence is about 10 min. away for great Salmon fishing. Beautiful Seward is 45 to 50 min. away for great salt water charters for Halibut, Ling Cod, Rock fish and Silver Salmon. Kenai Lake & Skelack Lake offers some big Lake Trout and there are a great number of smaller lakes in the area. The Kenai River offers all 5 species of Salmon along with world record Rainbow trout and Dolly Varden. Local Guides for all of the above are available. The lower river has some of the best King Salmon fishing in the world and I believe we still hold the world record for Kings.
Other Activities: World class hiking trails are numerous in the immediate area along with very gentle easy hikes like the trail to the Russian River Falls for bear viewing. Wild life and bird viewing abound even in the back yard at times. Glacier and whale viewing tours from Seward are fantastic and make a great day trip. Mountain biking, horse back riding , and kayaking are available locally.

This was our 3rd time visiting Alaska. We have stayed at other places by the river but this was by far the best. The views were amazing and the house was large enough for our whole group to stay together. It was very clean and had everything we needed. They even had a vacuum packer for us to use and plenty of freezer space for all our fish. It saved us money by being able to process our own fish. The River was right out the back door and the trout fishing was great. Very secluded and didn't have to worry about combat fishing. Will stay here again and tell all our friends too.
The house is as promised although there were several surprises. Yes they have televisions but no TV reception (even though there is a huge dish out back), just DVD/VHS capability. The WiFi worked so we could check the weather and news. The house was not very clean (oven, kitchen counters, dining room floor) The caretaker had just "moved out" for our vacation week and we could tell. Many of the lights did not work and the gas BBQ grill was broken, luckily someone knew how to use the charcoal one, which was very crusty. There are no room darkening shades in the master bedroom or futon room, so be prepared to sleep with daylight. The location is great for visiting all parts of the Penninsula and we enjoyed our stay. However, they are charging premium prices therefore it should be in excellent condition.
