About the property

Come stay in our quaint 2 bedroom log cabin located on 600 feet of the Kenai River. New platforms installed two years ago providing stairs into the river. A beautiful 17 mile drive from Soldotna, this property is ideal for those looking to fish with less crowds. There is an additional small one room cabin available to rent on this property providing accommodations for larger groups. There is a narrow drive way down to the river making it easier to access the river.

Relaxing stay on the Kenai River

  • 4 of 5

A very nice home. Loved the dining table. Stairs are broken down to the river to fish, but you can take the walk down the paved road leading to the dock. We thought we could walk into the water with waders to fish, but the water was too deep, so we fished from the dock, which was fine. No privacy in the home as the walls of the bedrooms, living room and kitchen do not reach the top of the ceiling. Very quiet area and very relaxing. We saw the Northern Lights while there. Would stay again.

Comfortable, although kitchen could be supplied better and bedrooms are not closed off.

  • 4 of 5

Major ups: Fishing docks. Clean. Comfortable. Mostly as described.

Major Downs: Wet towels. Garbage cans full. Stairs to docks were broken. Bedrooms did not have walls that went to the ceilings (no real privacy). Kitchen wasn't as stocked as we had hoped (pots/pans and glass wear) but it did work.

Overall: Would stay again, not with another couple, but with the kiddos would be great. If you are fishing, bring a lot of gear, there are a TON of snags.

The property worked well and the communication with the management group was superb. The fishing docks were great, but the access was not. The staircase to the river was not in use, and needed immediate attention. The stairs were old, and have been out of use for some time - not a big issue, but it did make access to the fishing location somewhat of an inconvenience.

The cabin was very well stocked with seasonings and condiments, this was a bonus but it would have been nice to have know there were eight sets of salt and pepper, Tabasco, etc.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

A 3 day stay for some fishing and hiking. Location was an extra 20 minutes out of the way from most places on the main side of the river or in town, but got to see a mother moose and 2 of her cubs being out of the way. Secluded and peaceful. Clean place. Spacious. Nice yard and walk to the river. Could have been a great spot to fish if the sockeyes were running. Only negative is the lack of water pressure for the shower. Felt like showering from a sink.

Alaskan Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It was the most perfect little cabin with all the comforts of home. It had a sink, bathroom, and washing machine and drier. It was located right on the kenai river about 17 miles outside of Soldotna. It took about 25 minutes to get into town but it was well worth it because it was very nice to get away from the people and be tucked back on your own little cabin. I went in mid-June and the fishing was okay. you will not catch any fish off of the dock in front of the cabin this time of year. If you want to catch fish in June you must get a guided trip or else you will not catch fish from the shore. Overall it was a great stay in a very scenic location.

Great View

  • 2 of 5

The view of the river and sunsets was astounding! However, the inside was a little left to be desired. The bedrooms need some serious updates. The beds are in need of new mattresses and updated, more comfortable bedding. The floors were dirty, and some we were able to sweep & clean, but the carpeted areas stayed filthy, since there was no vacuum on premise. Some ceiling fans or even plug in ones would also be a nice addition to cool it off on the hot nights. Some windows didn't have screens, so opening them only let in flies/bees.

The staircase down to the river is also in need of repair. We were fortunate enough to have considerate fisherman in the small cabin behind ours (within 15-20 feet of ours). We were not aware that there was another cabin being rented on the same site. Had the gentlemen been obnoxious, loud, late nighters we would not have been happy at all. We enjoyed the stay, but would liked to get better rest on more comfortable beds!

Loved the deck, the view and the bird feeders.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We apologize that the cabin did not meet your expectations. Your name did not show up as the person who booked this reservation on your date of stay; however, we wanted to reach out to you to get more details. We value your feed back and will address your concerns immediately. The mattresses will be replaced and we will shampoo the carpets right away. The stairs to the river will be inspected and repaired, fortunately, we have a nice easy sloped driveway to the river in the meantime. The screens will be addressed as well. Every guest signs an agreement to the rules which ensures quiet times are observed and respect to other guests on the property. When the rules are not followed, a call to our property manager should help resolve any issues.
