MAP DIRECTIONS:

Jaci or Mike purchased this house in 2002

Why Jaci or Mike chose Kenai Peninsula

Mike and Jaci fell in love with the Moose River area, then decided to put down roots. Mike hand built the chalet from the ground up and wanted to extend true Alaskan hospitality by turning it into a Vacation Rental, since we moved into the new house next door. The beauty of the Moose River with all the great birding and wildlife is spectacular year round.

What makes this house unique

Front row view of the river approximately 50 feet from living room windows, yet secluded and private. Gazebo with round table seats 4-6 people. Largest outdoor Hot Tub manufactured by Sundance Spa on a wood deck with wonderful private views of the river. Additional covered sun deck out back with a chest freezer and lounging area. Just outside from the kitchen is a large stainless steel fish cleaning table and handmade cutting board. Double hammock under the shade tree. Outside BBQ stocked with fresh cut wood and charcoal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Moose River Resort is a fun getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The Moose River Ranch Chalet is a great little rustic cabin along the Moose River. Jaci and Mike were very accommodating during our five night stay for my wife, my adult son, and me. We spent most of our time fishing the Kenai River and it was wonderful. Mike has a fish cleaning station at the Chalet and after Mike demonstrated his filleting skills, we cooked our fresh fish on the outdoor grill. We made most of our meals at the Chalet where the kitchen is a little small, but adequate for our needs. If you are looking for a rustic cabin away from the crowds, this is a great place.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here! A beautiful rustic cabin built by the owner Mike with all the amenities you could need. The pictures dont do it justice as its 10x better in person! The cabin is right on the Moose river, an absolutely beautiful setting with views from the living room, hot tub, and back porch. Its also a great location for all of the recreation the upper peninsula has to offer. I highly recommend staying here! Thanks again Mike and Jaci!

Tranquil retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the quiet, peaceful setting, sitting in the hot tub overlooking the lake. We would definitely like to go back. Mike had a very stocked kitchen - better than any other rental we've stayed at.
