About Jaci or Mike

'Moose River Mike and Jaci'. Hobbies include flying the Piper PA18 Super-cub all over Alaska, smoking fish, skeet shooting, skiing and wood working.

MAP DIRECTIONS:

Sterling Highway Milepost 81.5, turn North on to Otter Trail Road, drive 1.3 miles, turn left or west onto Bull Run Rd, follow Blue and White Business Signs to 39315 Bull Run Road (prior road name was Moose Run Road).

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.

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.

Great Cabin/Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Was a great cabin, great location and the owners were very nice. They were there for you when you had a question, but gave you your privacy. The cabin had everything you need and was very comfortable. Look forward to staying there again!

Perfect cabin with an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely fabulous!! Incredibly clean, very well stocked and quite comfortable. Nice and quiet place right on the river. Love that the owners Mike and Jaci are dog people and open to guests with dogs. Our dog was right at home wandering around. It was enjoyable to have the owners right there on the property going about their daily chores, and their dogs out and about as well. We will stay here again.

Lots to Do, even if You Don't Fish!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights at this rustic, spacious, well-stocked cabin on the Moose River. We loved the quiet location, yet still convenient to the owner's house nearby. The cabin has a rustic unfinished wood interior with decor similar to a hunting/fishing lodge with caribou and moose antlers. There is loads of storage space! And a state of the art super large washer and dryer are provided. I could almost fit two normal loads of wash in that one washing machine! The kitchen is so well stocked, even with lots of rolls of paper towels, and both regular and decaf coffee. We prepared all our breakfasts, packed all our lunches each day, and made all our dinners at the cabin. A huge Fred Myers grocery/super store is 13 miles away. I must say there is a slightly odd smell (due to the well water) to the water in the bathroom sink, shower, and kitchen sink. But there is a special faucet in the kitchen with good smelling filtered water. The bathroom is really spacious with a full tub/shower, loads of clean towels, and toiletries. We never did use the hot tub, so cannot tell about our experience with that. Every day we would leave for a different outing: Day One we hiked Russian River Falls Trail to see the spawning salmon and then visited Kenai (where we saw 3 caribou along the Bridge Access Road) and Soldotna (really enjoyed seeing the world record size King salmon in the Soldotna Visitor's Center). Day Two we spent all day driving to Homer, stopping at sights along the way. And Day Three we drove the Skilak Lake Road, hiked the Hideout Trail with its spectacular views of the Kenai River, Skilak Lake, and the surrounding mountains, and then hiked the Lower (East) Kenai River Trail to see the Kenai River Canyon. And every night, back at our cabin, we had a great night's sleep with the windows wide open. Loved our stay on the Moose River!

It's All About Alaska.

  • 5 of 5

I have always wanted to go to Alaska, and this past month it came true. Alaska is everything wonderful they say times 2. I have traveled extensively in my life, abroad, and the lower 49 but I honestly can say Alaska surpassed them all with it's beauty. The cabin was an added bonus. It was "tight" and well maintained with everything we needed for our stay. Mike and his wife were the perfect host and hostess, as they were there to answer questions but left us to our own schedule. We traveled all over the Peninsula, Homer, Seward, Girdwood and all were within 2 hours of the cabin. We woke to a cow moose in the river in front of the cabin, what a treat. We took a bear flightseeing plane over the inlet and saw many bears. I can't say enough about the hospitality of Mike and his wife, I just hope we can come back up soon to do a repeat.

Owner's Response: This is the kind of reviews we are accustomed to having, although we do not solicit reviews, we treasure them when visitors post a review online without prompting. This is the kind of place to come to if your not in a hurry to absorb the beauty of the peaceful Moose River. We thought your choices of excursions were excellent for experiencing Alaska.
