About Ron or Denise

My wife and I moved our family to Alaska in 1990 to realize the dream of residing in the "Last Frontier".

Raising our children while doing what we love - outdoor activities such as fishing, camping, boating and other wilderness activities - in our spare time was amazing. In the summers we would head out in our little red Zodiak inflatable boat and camp and fish along the Alaska coast.

My career took us away from Alaska for a time, but now that we are retiring and our children are raised, we are beyond thrilled to be back where we belong - on the Kenai Peninsula.

With years of fishing and excursion experience and a deep love for all things Alaska, my family and our amazing on-site property managers Ron and Denise, can help make your Alaska vacation dreams come true. We are committed to giving you the experience of a lifetime.

Ron or Denise purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Ron or Denise chose Kenai Peninsula

We have over 200 feet of river frontage with some of the best fishing in all of Alaska. We are right in the middle of the Kenai Peninsula, this location gives access to the best outdoor excursions with only a short driving distance. Every trip to Homer or Seward is an adventure in itself as the drive is breathtaking and you regularly see wildlife in the beautiful wilderness setting.

What makes this cabin unique

You will not find a nicer cabin on the Kenai River and the view is beautiful. In addition it is amazing to watch the eagles fish the river and return to their huge nests in the immediate area. Many times we experience Moose swimming across the river, sometimes with their new calves. During the summer we also see brown and black bear in the area. Every day is an adventure. It is simply one of the very best lodging and excursion opportunities in Alaska.

Hands down the best place to stay - & we've stayed at a few places in the area. It's a labor of love for Ron & Denise & the property is immaculate. They were great hosts & lovely people. From the booking process to throughout our stay it was outstanding. We've had the same fishing guide for years & when I asked him for the best luxury rentals he recommended Eagle Head. Our guide picked us up from the dock out front which is so much easier than meeting at a launch ramp & wonderful for the end of the day not having to drive back to our place. We enjoyed sitting on the dock watching the river - it's great for fishing too - although we just relaxed in between our day trips. Stayed in The View cabin - just two of us - & loved it. We like to cook & had everything we needed as well as condiments, spices & oils. We were also very lucky to have the whole place to ourselves while we were there. I'm a light sleeper & it was so quiet. This place is great for couples or large groups. The Gazebo is a nice spot to gather if you have a group - or you can sit on your own porch. We travel extensively for business & use VRBO a ton & this place far exceeded our expectations. Ron & Denise were the best hosts we've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Can't wait to return next year!

Relaxing, Comfortable, and FUN!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best 10 day vacation at Eagle Head Cabins. Basketball, a golf hole, and fishing on the property along with gorgeous views, outdoor seating and amenities, and wild life made this trip memorable. The cabins were clean and equipped with everything we needed. Ron and Taylor were extremely helpful with fishing tips and helping us fillet and package our fish. Denise was always there to see that our comfort was excellent. The surrounding towns were so fun to explore and it was easy to take day trips into Seward, Kenai, and Anchorage. I was nervous about our children as they are only 3 &1 but they had just as much fun as we did. We WILL be back.

Adventure of a life time...

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely positively the best of the best possible locations to stay in Alaska... And then if your are interested in actually hooking up and "landing" salmons... There is no better place..

The cabins are amazing...

Hosts incredible...

But the fishing is off the charts.... "Private Dock".... If you have fished the river... Then you know... During the season it's wall to wall fisherman.... But not here... And all the gear you can imagine is hanging on the wall.. Ready for you to use and if that's not enough... Ron is standing by with a life time of experiences to guide you through the process..

And there is Denise... As sweet and charming as a host you could ever imagine... Denise made sure everything was perfect for us upon arrival and throughout our entire stay

As previously stated... The best of the best!!!

Sweet Memory

  • 5 of 5

We feel lucky to find Eagle Head. Our family spent a wonderful time there. The log cabin is very well maintained and decorated nicely. Our hosts, Ron and Denise are so nice and helpful. They made us feel like visiting friends instead of just renting the place. Ron showed my husband and son how to clean the fishes. And I enjoyed talking to Denise every day after our outings. I will definitely recommend to friends.

fall visit and fishing

  • 5 of 5

Eagle Head is amazing! No other words do it justice. These "cabins" are better than anybodies home, and at the same time rustic. They really give you that Alaska feel that is part of the magic of the visit. Great views of the river, the eagles, and great salmon too. Ron and Denise are like family, and they make sure every need is accomodated. They also arranged a float trip for rainbows and arctic char to see more of the river, so there was variety to the fishing. Big fish and lots of fun. I will definitely be back... :)

Five Stars!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect is the word that best describes our recent stay at Eagle Head Cabins! The owners Ron and Denise are consummate hosts and have considered every detail that will make your stay there perfect. We felt like family and consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to stay with them and get to know them.

The grounds are beautiful and all of the cabins are immaculate, secure, decorated with local art, have WiFi, DVD and Direct TV. The kitchens have all of the essentials, along with a private BBQ to prepare real meals. Laundry facility is also provided.

Fishing platforms are provided for guests to enjoy carefree fishing. Top quality, pre-rigged gear is also provided for those that don’t have equipment. Ron’s knowledge of the local conditions really helps anglers dial in where to fish. A fish cleaning station is provided, complete with a commercial vacuum packing machine and freezer space. Vacuum bags are provided without charge. This convenience really helped because we didn’t have to drive to Soldotna to have our fish processed each day. There was even a digital scale to weigh the boxes of fish we shipped back home. Almost forgot, unlimited ice is provided free of charge!

While we concentrated our efforts on fishing, it wouldn’t matter what your vacation entailed… wildlife viewing, sight seeing, complete and total relaxation… Eagle Head Cabins fits the bill.

So, here is the bottom line. Eagle Head Cabins may be a few dollars more than the competition. However, the dollars quickly add up when you consider the conveniences like laundry, free ice and fish processing. Finally, if you’re looking for a quality experience in serenely beautiful surroundings, look no further - Eagle Head Cabins are perfect!

We plan to stay with Ron and Denise again. In fact, we will be back next year and hopefully for many years to come. Thanks Ron, Denise, Rocky and Max for making our visit to the Kenai the best ever! Eagle Head Cabins deserves a Five Star Rating.

Mahalo and Aloha,

Tom and Laura
