Conveniently located approximately 90 minutes south of Anchorage, the Mystic Lodge is a custom built chalet in the heart of the Kenai Mountains. Featuring hardwood floors in the living room, tile in the kitchen/bath and wall to wall carpet in the bedrooms your feet are always warm from the radiant in floor heating. With a cathedral ceiling and elements of post and beam, you are truly 'roughing it comfortably' with some of the best fishing in the world literally at your doorstep. Tastefully appointed with artwork and local pictures, the south facing windows are practically overgrown with beautiful houseplants and offer magnificent views of the Kenai Mountains where Mt. Goats and Dall Sheep are often visible.
Whether you are fishing the upper Kenai for trout or salmon, the lower Kenai for King Salmon, or the saltwater possibilities out of Seward or Homer, we are centrally located making all of these locations possible. If you are not a fisherman, there are unlimited hiking and biking trails that offer endless wildlife viewing possibilities, and we are always happy to offer suggestions or help in planning your desired activities.
Our love of the outdoors and the wild beauty of Alaska brought us to Cooper Landing. We are both transplants from the southwest and enjoy hiking, camping and of course fishing. As a fly fishing guide for Mystic Waters and my wife's love of the outdoors, it seemed natural to settle on Kenai Lake. We are less than a mile from where the world famous Kenai River begins, which puts us in some of the best fly fishing water in all of Alaska. We invite you to come enjoy our beautiful vacation home and share in the beauty of our magnificent state.
Stacy or Shannon purchased this house in 2003
We built our rental during the fall of 2002 and the winter of 2003. We built the Mystic Lodge primarily to accommodate guests that come up to fish the Kenai with us, but you don't have to fish to enjoy this wonderful area. The outdoor activities and wildlife viewing opportunities abound. Spend a week here and you'll see why Cooper Landing truly is the 'gem' of the Kenai Peninsula.
Beyond the incredible beauty of this area, we are conveniently located 90 minutes south of Anchorage on Kenai Lake. We are a mile from the Kenai River (on Kenai Lake) and 10 minutes from the famous Russian River which puts you right in the middle of some of the best sport fishing in the world. There are numerous hiking and biking trails in the area and we are minutes away from the town Cooper Landing. You will frequently see wildlife including moose and bears. Mountain goats and Dall Sheep can be seen almost daily on the adjacent mountains.
I have been a guest of Stacy and Shannon's for the past six years. I guess that I would describe their lodge as a "home away from home". First of all, we are in Alaska to fish. They have a very nice deck where we can get out of our boots and waders. Then just inside the front door is a tilted entry and hooks for damp waders and clothes. The deck also has a nice grill where you can cook the catch of the day. The kitchen is well stocked with every utensil that one would need to prepare a meal if desired. The kitchen has everyone one needs except a cook. The lodge can sleep 7 comfortably, but in our case it sleeps 4 very comfortably. In other words there are three queen beds and one twin. All bedding and towels are provided. There is one bedroom on the first floor and a sleeping loft on the second. The living room is comfortable with a large flatscreen TV and satellite reception. Bathroom has a tub/shower and washer/dryer. I can reccomend this lodge with no reservation at all. It is extremely clean, comfortable and very well maintained.
The place was great, we crammed a whole group in here and the kitchen was well equipped and thank goodness for the dish washer :). The deck was lovely and Cooper Landing is a beautiful place.
Sharp Cabin--very clean and updated which we really appreciated. Host Stacy was very helpful about the area and of course fishing. It was just my husband and I at the cabin but could have easily accommodated a bigger family. nice kitchen and amenties and easy to get to. would come back again and stay here
We really enjoyed our stay. The home was very clean and comfortable and had everything you needed. I felt like I was at one of the best accommodations in Cooper Landing. Stacy and Shannon we excellent hosts.
We had a great stay at this centrally located cabin in Cooper Landing. We walked down to the lake/beach and enjoyed the awesome view. We were close to Kenai River, Kenai Lake and Russian River. We had a great time with 5 adults in the 2 bedroom. Lots of room, great beds, and the kitchen was well appointed. Thanks to Stacy and Shannon for making the stay wonderful.
Stacy and Shannon have a wonderful home located in a pristine area. All you really need to bring is yourself and some food. The cabin is well stocked and very comfortable. Everything met or exceeded our expectations. Stacy and Shannon made our stay a memorable one going out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. You won't be disappointed. I would also recommend using Stacy as your guide if you plan on fishing the area. He knows the area like the back of his hand and you won't be disappointed! All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We stayed for 3 nights, and everything was absolutely perfect... it's location made accessing the Kenai and Russian Rivers a breeze, and it has everything you would ever need for a home away from home.
Will definitely stay here again on future trips!!
We are located on Kenai Lake, about 1 mile from where the world famous Kenai River begins. This is the center of some of the best fishing and outdoor activities in all of Alaska and perhaps, the world.
