Overview

Cooper Landing Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 adults + 2 kids)

This property is located across the river from the Kenai Princess Lodge at the beginning of the Upper River Rapids. There is about 130 feet of low bank river frontage and an additional 700 feet of wade access under normal water conditions. This property can be rented with the neighboring River House upstream (VRBO #252577).

We have completed a significant remodel during the winter and spring of 2016 which included adding a new washer/dryer, new flooring, upgrading the kitchen, adding five windows, full length dormer, new interior and exterior paint and a Norwegian stove to better experience this river front setting. For this reason the property will not be available until June 1st, 2016.

The Kenai River is open for fishing between June 11th and May 1st. The ADF&G website is a great source of information on the latest fishing regulations.

Please checkout the video walkthrough and additional pictures on our facebook page below.

About Ryan and Robin

There are few things I enjoy more than floating down the Upper Kenai. I was lucky enough to spend the month of September fishing in Cooper Landing for about a decade before owning this property. For any guests that have not experienced the fall in Cooper Landing, I strongly recommend it.

Ryan and Robin purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Ryan and Robin chose Kenai Peninsula

There are many houses available for rent in Cooper Landing, but few have the river front privacy and fishing as the Bear Den. Sitting by a warm fire down by the river after a great day of exploring Alaska is one of our favorite features of the property.

If the world class rainbow fishing was not enough, the upper river is one of the most beautiful places I have come across. The house sits across from the drift only marker on the Upper Kenai (No motors allowed). Just upstream from the property, the river begins to narrow and pick up current.

What makes this cottage unique

Rainbows and Dollies can be caught easily for most of the summer and fall. In late September and October the second run of Silver Salmon start to stack up behind the house. In March and April the property is home to a concentration of bald eagles that are feasting on spawning silver salmon creating some fantastic photo opportunities.

Great place in Cooper Landing

This was a beautiful place to stay as a middle ground for our fishing trips in both Seward & Soldotna.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

The location was fantastic, situated on the river.The views are great and the accommodation is deluxe.

We missed a few items that made the everyday live pleasant, bowls, hairdryer and a barbecue grill which worked.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at "The Bear Den"

Owner's Response: Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and submitting your review. We are planning to upgrade the kitchen inventory this fall. In addition we will be adding a hair dryer in each bathroom for the 2017 season. We apologize that the electric starter for the gas grill was not working during your stay. The replacement part has been ordered from the manufacturer.

Wonderful Cabin and Gorgeous Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous time at The Bear Den. The cabin was lovely and the location is beyond beautiful! The cabin was extremely comfortable and spacious with new appliances, a fantastic deck, cozy furniture, adorable pictures of bears, and an area to enjoy a fire by the river. I LOVED it all and did not want to leave! I would happily live here :)

25-YEAR ANNIVERSARY

  • 5 of 5

We just reluctantly returned from Cooper Landing, Alaska. This house was great! There is no prettier location. We fished in the morning and evening right from the back yard and caught and released more trout than we could have dreamed possible. The back deck was great and we roasted marshmallows on the fire by the river. There was even a nesting pair of eagle’s right across the river from us to keep us company. The interior was very comfortable and felt like home. If you are interested in spending time in a great little house with some of the best Trout fishing in the country, this place is for you!
