Clean, Quiet Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was a great, relaxing location that was still convenient to Denali National Park, Hatcher Pass, and Anchorage. We enjoyed the lake and watching from our deck as a moose with her two calves munched plants nearby. Being so close to the lake, we were shocked at how few bugs were there! Our hosts were very helpful and friendly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. Yes one good thing about the breeze coming off the lake it keeps the bugs away. Hope to see you return to Alaska someday when the salmon runs are plentiful. Aloha kris

What an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cabin. It was everything we could want in a quiet and beautiful place. Kris provides everything you need including some fun stuff - Kayak, Fishing Poles and Fire Ring. The view from the deck on the house and the boat dock is amazing. Can't wait to head back again soon.

Very relaxing and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the lakeside retreat. The cabin was super clean and had everything you could need for a getaway! The lake is small but perfect for paddling around in and fishing. Great fire pit!

Great cozy space!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cabin! Sad we weren't able to stay longer! It was the perfect "middle point" for us traveling north to Denali and south to Seward/homer area! Very clean, organized, and had everything we needed to cook our fresh caught fish!

Beautiful, relaxing oasis

  • 5 of 5

We loved the peace and serenity of this cabin! My husband and I spent 3 days in quiet contentment. The cabin is beautiful and fully furnished/stocked with everything you need to relax. The deck overlooks the lake and gives you a great place to check out the stars at night. We spent an entire day ice fishing! My favorite part about this experience is no tv!! There is nothing to distract from the the gorgeous surroundings. Kris is amazing! Her directions and instructions were easy to follow. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful view and awesome hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to my hometown with my three sons ages 3,5, and 10 and we had a wonderful time at Kris's property. She was very accommodating and even let us use her fishing poles! We caught three good sized trout off of the dock and we are sad to leave.
