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.

Our stay at Moose River Resort & Hot Tub 2017

  • 5 of 5

Karen & I had a fantastic stay at the Moose River Resort! Our hosts were very friendly and helpfull. The cabin and surounding grounds were clean and neat. The cabin is well stocked with everything that you could possibly need. Mike gave us some pointers on fishing and where to go to find some bright salmon holding up in the rivers. All and all we had a great trip and came home with lots of Sockeye salmon.

Thanks again, Mike & Jaci

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome cabin hidden in the woods!! This is an old cabin with lots of charm and character! The decor is outstanding...it reminded me of my grandparents home. Mike met us at check in and was very friendly and helpful. He even offered to help us with processing our fish. The cabin is stocked with everything you could possibly need! What a nice touch. The cabin is in a great location and has a fantastic view of the Moose River. We did Day trips to Seward and Homer. Soldotna is about a 15 min drive and it has groceries, restaurants, shopping, etc. Would love to return again sometime!!

Absolutely beautiful property! Owners are extremely nice and super helpful. Come stay on the Moose!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and the area. Short drive to Soldotna where you can pick up anything you need at the Fred Meyer's and a number of restaurants around if you don't feel like cooking. Boo Kandas is a great fishing guide if you want to go out on a charter boat. Hot tub felt great after our day of fishing. Tons of trails in the area for some hiking (something we don't normally like but enjoyed here), with amazing scenery. As a bonus, we did get to see a moose with 2 calves on the river just a short distance from the cabin! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Only problem with the stay at all is that we didn't plan enough time to explore all there is to see on the peninsula. Stay as long as you can, and I doubt anyone will be disappointed with the beauty that surrounds you on all sides.
