Soldotna Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin #1; 4 bedrooms; 1 bathroom on the river

Stay in our 4 bedroom cabin while you fish our riverbank. We have a fishing cleaning station right at the river. We have 4 sets of stairs that go down into the river making it very easy to fish. The cabin has one downstairs bedroom with a full size bed. 3 more bedrooms up stairs with full/twin bunk beds. Although the cabin can accommodate up to 11 people, there is only one bedroom and only about 960 sq. ft. We have a picnic table outside with a charcoal grill for you to share with the other 2 cabins.

4 bedroom cabin on the Kenai River
average rating of 3.0 based on 5 reviews

Nice river close cabin. Amenities as advertised.

  • 4 of 5

On the plus side, comfortable and clean sleeping accommodations, kitchen was good, prior guests left useful cooking things so we didn't have to buy things like cooking oil, coffee, salt/ pepper., sodas, etc. plenty of hot water for the three of us to shower in succession.

On the could be better side: Spartan flatware and little of it. Also, the 12 inch no stick cooking pan is awful, every thing stuck to it, in part because its surface resembles that of the moon, craters and all.

Overall we'd go back without hesitation.

Not very clean when we arrived, had to rewash the dishes, no dishwasher, very stained carpet. Not many kitchen items, such as pots, pans and cooking utensils. No extra garbage bags.

Had a BBQ but no propane bottle, did have a little briquette BBQ, but had to buy the briquettes. It is shared with all four cabins.

Water not good for drinking, rusty and had a sulfur smell and taste.

We were upset that the lock code is so simple that other guests knew our combination.

If fishing for red salmon it is a good location, but as stated before you may find locals that “know the owner”, only room for 4 fishermen when the water is high.

Will not stay there again.

Come on just tell him your friend of the owner

Excellent spot to fish. Excellent place to stay. About 50 people came down and said we're friends of the owner and we can fish here.unless this got fixed I will never come back and I doubt anyone else would

Owner's Response: My apologies for your troubles while staying at our property. Just so you and future guests know, there are no authorized guests permitted on our property unless they are staying in one of our cabins. These people claiming to be "friends of the owners" are trespassing and are not welcome on the property. We recommend you call the property manager and if needed local law enforcement. We did speak with a local police officer regarding your complaint and was informed that this is a common problem for river bank property owners. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will consider our property again in the future.

enough room foe everyone

  • 2 of 5

This cabin had more than enough room for our party of 6. It was clean, although we did have to do the dishes over before using them and the stove needed to be wiped down. We enjoyed our visit and the river was beautiful.

Great place to Fish!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for what we needed. Honestly we were hardly in it except to sleep. The fact that you can walk right down to the River and fish from a private shore is so great. We caught a ton of fish, Sockeye Salmon here. We used the charcoal grill outside to cook some of our fish also. Highly recommend this place if you are in to catching fish from shore!
