Alaska Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1100 Sq Ft Alaska Log Home, Lake Community, 1 Loft Bedroom, Mountain Views

Welcome to the Log Cabin at the lake. Serenity and privacy is all yours. Only a 15 minute picturesque drive from beautiful Palmer located in the Matanuska Valley. This is a new and contemporary log cabin built by one of Alaska's premier log home builders that sits on it's own private 1.25 acres in a small lake community. This is not in a cramped tourist area, here you get to enjoy Alaska like an Alaskan yet you are only 1 1/4 hours from Anchorage. But don't think you're sacrificing connectivity for the rustic life, the cabin is equipped with all the modern amenities of home including high speed internet, telephone (with free nationwide calling), Sling TV on a brand new 50" 4K UHD TV with movie channels and many premium programming choices. ROKU to enjoy streaming your favorite Netflix or Hulu subscriptions. Bluetooth Speaker which works with most mobile devices, radiant in-floor heating and of course a wood stove for those cozy nights in front of the fire. Be one of the first to stay and enjoy the zen relaxation of this home. There is a loft bedroom with his and hers closets and a beautiful view, queen bed, dresser and nightstands. Downstairs in the great room, one comfy queen Futon that sleeps two and a Simmons Beautyrest foldaway bed for those extra guests. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with a large french door refrigerator, dishwasher, full size stove, built-in microwave, toaster, coffee maker. Kitchen has all utensils and cookware. The dining area is spacious and comfortable, seats 6 and affords patio door access to the large open grilling deck with chairs, small table and BBQ Grill for enjoying the Alaska outdoors. There is a full length covered porch at the front of the cabin with Adirondack chairs and table for relaxing and watching the occasional Moose. The bathroom is large and modern with full size bath and shower. The cabin also has a modern washer and dryer with laundry items supplied.

If fishing is your passion, you are only a five minute stroll to the lake. We even supply poles and tackle. There are two golf courses just 15 minutes away that are surrounded by spectacular mountain vistas. Groceries, gas, churches, restaurants and bars are also only a short ten minute drive to Palmer. Wasilla is just twenty minutes by car and has all major shopping including Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Sears, Fred Meyers, plus a host of local stores. The famous Iditarod sled dog race begins in Wasilla every year. Just outside Palmer are Musk Ox and Reindeer Farms and Tours. Hatcher Pass is also close by and affords some great skiing in winter and hiking in summer. Both Anchorage city center and the Anchorage International Airport are an easy one and a quarter hours drive away.

Why Kay chose Alaska

Unlike some vacation homes that are situated in primarily tourist areas, this cabin is located in a peaceful lake community inhabited by locals. You will have the unique opportunity to enjoy Alaska like an Alaskan.

What makes this cabin unique

There is simply nothing like a true log cabin experience. We call it the 'zen cabin' because of the calming effect you will feel as you walk through the door. Log homes are living breathing things and you truly feel at home and relaxed here. You will enjoy the best nights sleep of your life, no noise and you can literally hear a pin drop.

This wonderful cabin is exactly as described. Its central location made a wonderful base camp for all of our Alaska adventures. It was clean, updated, had a nice lay out, and was well stocked with anything you would need. We had a wonderful time staying here and we would definitely book again.

Dream come True!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This cabin is perfect. It has everything you need. It is so comfortable. Our first day here we saw a big cow moose with her twins standing in the road. Moose tracks in the drive way. Far enough out of the city that you get the real feel of Alaska. There are plenty of places to go very close to the cabin. We visited a musk ox farm, a reindeer farm, and a gold mine all in the same day. We drove to Seward and took the day cruise to the glaciers, breathtaking! I hope to come back very soon.

What a fantastic, peaceful, and enjoyable escape during our Alaskan vacation. The Cabin provided us a place to rest in the quiet and enjoy all the comforts of home. Our vacation was filled with a mix of both outdoor adventure and quiet relaxation and we appreciated The Cabin as our retreat after a day out and about.

We enjoyed the many amenities of The Cabin that included modern comforts (dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc.) and also were grateful for the opportunity to light a fire in the woodstove on cool mornings.

We look forward to returning to The Cabin with our daughter as we felt she would enjoy staying here as well.

Peaceful cozy delight

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was warm, beautiful and well kept. I liked the spacious bathroom with enough room to put our toiletries. We had all the electronic comforts of home in a remote feeling setting. Town was only 15 minutes away. We have stayed at multiple rental homes and cabins in Alaska and this was the best. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Kay, the owner, was so accessible and helpful by text, email and phone, and although there was little need to contact her, her knowledge of the area was appreciated. If you are looking for the Alaskan experience, this is the place to stay. Can't wait to come back!

Excellent Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I GREATLY enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The drive to the cabin is gorgeous and the cabin itself is nicely situated amongst some trees for a secluded feel. We found everything was exactly as described by the owner's listing and the cabin was very well maintained and extremely clean. Everything is up to date, cozy, and comfortable. The wood stove is such a nice touch for relaxing indoors when you are finished exploring for the day! The cabin is just a short drive from shopping and dining. We received outstanding customer service and responsiveness from the owner. I would recommend this cabin to anyone and can't wait to go back myself! Thank you so much Kay for all your hospitality and sharing your lovely home with us.

Terrific Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in this cabin. The property and the cabin exceeded our expectations, the pictures on the website are good but we were truly impressed when we got there, from the minute we walked in the door we felt at home. We arrived at the cabin on Sunday and spent Monday just laying around and enjoying the place. During the week we visited Denali National Park, and although the weather didn't really cooperate for us to get a good view of Mt. McKinley, it was still a good day. I have come to the conclusion that whether in clear skies and sunshine or cloudy and raining that Alaska is beautiful. We took a day to drive down to Seward and we highly recommend eating at Chinooks, our food was excellent and the service was great. Exit Glacier, Matanuska Glacier, and the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage are also worth seeing. We want to thank Kay and Kelly for the use of the cabin, it was worth every penny and made our first week of marriage truly memorable.
