Overview

About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

COME TO ALASKA and enjoy your long awaited Alaskan vacation in a spectacular setting nestled in among the 3,000-7,000' Chugach Mountains. View the wildlife from the front deck and experience the peace and solitude this property has to offer. The chalet sits on the side of a mountain and you may never want to leave. But if you do, just travel six miles down the mountain to Eagle River where you will find shopping and groceries. There, you can access the Glenn Highway and in just ten miles arrive in the city of Anchorage.

This is truly a unique location. Travel from the mountain chalet to the city of Anchorage and places beyond. This is a great location for daytripping. There is so much to do and see.

In state residents who have business, medical, or other needs that bring them iinto Anchorage will find a relaxing, comfortable place to unwind and relax after a tiring day. The fresh air and scenery will take the stress away in short order. It is a short ride to escape the hustle and bustle of your day.

Although we do not yet have a cartop carrier, there is a 16' aluminum canoe available for your use.

SO COME SPEND SOME TIME IN ALASKA - EVERYONE SHOULD VISIT AT LEAST ONCE!

Keywords: 1600 sq.foot chalet located just below tree line in alpine valley. On 2 private acres in

quiet residential area with mountain views from every window..

MY WIFE AND I PURCHASED THIS LOT IN '79'. THE HOUSE WAS BUILT THE FOLLOWING YEAR. IT WAS TRUE WILDERNESS BACK IN THOSE DAYS, BUT HAS BECOME MORE SETTLED OVER THE YEARS WITH THE ADVENT OF PAVEMENT, NATURAL GAS, AND ROAD MAINTENACE. THE AREA HAS REMAINED RURAL WITH LARGE LOT SIZES KEEPING IT OPEN AND APPEALING TO WILDLIFE.

The Owner purchased this chalet in 1979

Why The Owner chose Eagle River

WE WANTED TO LIVE AND RAISE OUR KIDS IN A TRULY ALASKAN SETTING, BUT STILL BE WITHIN RANGE OF EMPLOYMENT

Beautiful log home in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? This is not your typical VRBO. This is a haven from the world outside. A beautiful log home with all the creature comforts you could need. Well laid out, beautifully decorated, incredible views... I could go on and on. Checked in a couple times with the owner via email during our stay. Owners were quick to respond. The home is only a few minutes drive from the Glenn highway, yet feels a million miles away. Such a beautiful, peaceful setting.

Since I firmly believe in posting the good and bad with all reviews I post, here's the bad....Our stay here ended and we had to leave. Seriously. We absolutely loved our time here. This is a phenomenal place. Upon arrival we found the kitchen pretty well stocked to get our visit started. There was OJ, coffee and half & half, as well as a veggie tray to snack on!! Comfortable beds, living room seating, etc. The mountain views are breathtaking. Most days we watched bears on the mountain across the valley, from the comfort of our front deck. Dined out a few nights in nearby Eagle River and Anchorage. Grilled fresh halibut and salmon fillets on the huge gas grill on the covered back porch. John and Ellen have thought of everything when putting together this place. You can feel the love that has gone into this home!

Thanks John and Ellen. We are looking forward to returning to our new found home away from home when in the Anchorage area again!!! Mark & Cari

Luxury and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Mountain House for four nights with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. It was Wonderful. The scenery was breathtaking. We were in Alaska for two weeks and this was are favorite home away from home. The owners not only provided a beautiful, clean home but had everything if you wanted to prepare a meal or play a game, or just relax on one of the beautiful decks. Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were there but we could still sit out on the covered deck and relax. Anchorage is so close that we were able to do what we had planned then enjoy this serene beauty to unwind. They even have a spyglass to see animals on the mountain and books that tell you about things to do in the area, maps, hikes and books about animals, plants and birds so you can identify things you see. If your in the Anchorage area you will love this home!

Great views, excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at this cabin! Magnificent views, well appointed, clean and centrally located to explore the Anchorage area. Also of note there is a nice playground called Spirit Park just across the creek from the cabin. Highly recommend this rental.
