About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath with Mountain Views

We are calling it our Alaska cabin. Its quiet, cozy, great views, and a 5 minute drive to Eagle River for groceries or a great cup of coffee at Jitters (our local spot). There is great hiking and views-for-miles just minutes up the road from our house to the top of Skyline Dr. at Mt. Baldy ( Or just sit on the deck with an evening glass of wine and look out across at Hiland Mountain or on a clear day north to see Denali. Eagle River is a great spot for day trips north to Palmer, Hatcher's Pass, Big Lake, or south to Anchorage, Artic Valley, Alyeska, and the Kenai Peninsula.

Our home has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and is set up with 3 king beds, a great open floor plan, and easy flat driveway for any car, or even parking an RV.

About Kelly OConnor

I moved to Alaska in 1969, lived, worked and raised 4 kids there in Eagle River for 30 years. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii now with my 2 horses and I enjoy getting back to Eagle River to see friends and family as often as I can. This Alaska home has been a dream for us (the kids and grandkids) for several years and we finally found the perfect home in a great location.

Kelly OConnor purchased this house in 2014

Why Kelly OConnor chose Eagle River

Our family of 6 grew up just down the road in the 70s and 80s and while the kids (and their grandkids) have moved to different parts of the 'lower 48', we have been wanting a place to come back to you and keep ourselves connected to Alaska, so we have finally found this family home. We hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Pretty place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly like the pictures shown. The area is quiet and beautiful surroundings. It was about 30 minutes from downtown Anchorage so sometimes a drive to do activities south of Anchorage. All the bedrooms are downstairs and the stairs are fairly steep for a big heavy suitcase (like I brought! Lol) The House is spacious and well maintained. Great washer and dryer that we used to be able to pack lighter for our trip from Illinois.

Impressive view

  • 4 of 5

Our family of seven enjoyed the space and comfort of this Eagle River home. We are glad we chose outside of Anchorage and outside of congestion. The house had everything we needed, including a pantry with staples to get us going. Everyone especially enjoyed the large deck. It was also nice to have laundry facilities so we could pack lightly. Lovely visit.

Very enjoyable and comfortable with great view.

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed for 7 nights and found this home to be a great place to stay during our various day-trips around the Anchorage area. Very open floor-plan, private with a great view. We would rent this again if returning to the area.

Great home for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit for a family vacation. There were 8 of us total. The house was perfect. We had the master bedroom set up with 3 beds like shown and it worked perfectly for our family visit. We saw wildlife throughout our week at the house as well as during our site seeing. (Bear, mama moose and baby, coyote, and several cool birds including an owl.) We did several day hiking trips to various glaciers; Matanuska and Exit Glaciers are amazing. The hikes weren’t terribly difficult and the views were breathtaking. We also spent a couple days driving down to Seward and Girdwood. Would recommend doing that if you have time.

One thing we’d change is how much food we bought. We over estimated our time at the cabin and unfortunately wasted more food than we meant to. So maybe get the basics and then get dinner stuff as you go. Walmart is literally just up the road.
