About JOHN DUSTON
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.
JOHN DUSTON purchased this Chalet in 1979

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!
We loved every minute of our stay at the Mountain House. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, stocked kitchen and even some AK bread and coffee. The view is spectacular and we enjoyed watching the wildlife on the other side of the valley in the evening. It's a great home base for excursions to Eagle River, Anchorage, and Palmer and John has even left a list of ideas for things to see. I think we did them all.
Communication with John was quick and easy and I would recommend his home to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay with amazing views! Needless to say, we did not want to leave and when we make it back to AK, we will want to stay here! Thanks for everything John! We had a great time and can't wait to make it back!
Excellent log cabin up in the hills, beautiful views in all directions and the house was immaculate upon arrival. John and Ellen left us a nice note welcoming us and I communicated with John throughout the trip and he advised us on places to go and gave us weather updates as the weather was a bit ugly. All in all, wonderful place to stay with all the amenities of home!
Beautiful view and the house had everything
The house was beautiful and had everything you could think of and the owner of the house was very nice.
We stayed here our last few days in Alaska. The views were amazing! Cabin is in a nice quiet area. It had everything we needed to be more than comfortable. John was very responsive to any questions we had and made our experience very enjoyable. If I ever make it back to the area I would love to stay here in the summer!
Absolutely beautiful, well taken care of rental. The location is outstanding. John was awesome!
We arrived at around 3 am in the morning and found access available to the location. The house is beautiful and well maintained. There were moose and bear spotted the week before we arrived and we had hoped to see the same. We were out and about our entire time there and didn't arrive back to the house before nightfall so wildlife wasn't seen however the view of the surrounding area was astounding! We absolutely could not have chosen a more beautiful house and location. Snow capped mountains greeted us every morning. If I had the option to move to this location I'd chose this house for sure. John was so gracious with his communication and ideas for excursions. He was a please to work with and I hope to be able to return. If I do return it will undoubtedly be to this rental.
Thank-you for the glowing review and for leaving the place spotless.
Winter arrived shortly after your departure with 16" of snow, so your timing
A great review always makes us happy campers
Amazing Cabin Where Nature Comes Knocking At Your Back Door.
We really enjoyed this Mountain Home. Everything was beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Conveniently located without being in the mess of daily traffic associated by big city neighbors, like Anchorage. From the view to the decor to the perfect location it exceeded our expectations. The views of the mountains from the deck are spectacular and the last morning was our most beautiful sunrise! We also appreciated the personal response from the owner John. He was so responsive and helpful in every way and it made all the difference.
The most amazing part of this vacation was mother nature in all it's splendor. We had a bear with her baby cub wonder the property. We all got amazing pictures of momma bear but not junior because he hid behind the shed. 10-15 minutes later, a moose and her calf ran from the front porch to the back porch and up a well established game trail. Such a beautiful experience. Our last morning was blessed with the sighing of a white grayish wolf. I mentioned this to John and he stated he has only seen 1 other wolf in his 30 years of living there. I must admit, I feel truly blessed to have experienced such beauty. Highly recommend.
It was great having your family stay at the house, of course the highlight was seeing a
nice variety of wildlife right in the yard. We
appreciate the pictures you forwarded to
us. Thanks for leaving the house in great shape.
Maybe we'll see you down in Texas one of
The best feature of our location is mountain scenery/ peace and quiet.
