Update From 2014 Review

  • 5 of 5

This is just to update a previous review. I've stayed at this cabin twice since my original review in 2014. I wanted to note that most (if not all) of the "cons" related to the cabin in my original post were fixed prior to me staying in 2015. Its a great place to stay!

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

We liked this place a lot. Private access to the river is a big plus and no crowds. The house is larger in the pictures than it really is but it was plenty large enough for our family of two little girls. There is a wood stove but no wood that I could find however turned out sunny the next few days so didn't need it anyway. In fact we had to open windows! We ate most of are meals out so the dishes weren't a big deal. Our stay was relaxing!

Cabin met expectations, but fishing areas did not

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was rustic as advertised so it definitely met my expectations. It turned out that I was the only one person to stay the week. I slept in the large bed, which was comfortable. Definitely no complaints with the cabin. However, the reason I'm only giving it 3 stars rather than 5, was the fishing. (Private, no "combat fishing" was the only reason I rented the cabin.) Yes, there was the 600 feet of river frontage with multiple fishing platforms, BUT in front of each platform, where you needed to fish, there were numerous snags in the water. This made it nearly impossible to fish in most areas. I lost a LOT of hooks and set-ups on the snags. These need to be cleaned up when water levels are lower. The larger cabin was occupied by 5 guys. They tried fishing along the 600 feet their first day. After losing a lot of rigs, they gave up and ended up fishing other areas. I don't think they ever came back to fish on the property. In the absence of the snags, I would up my rating to 6 stars if this was possible since the river frontage seemed like it would be a good place to fish.

awesome place

  • 5 of 5

we had a great time at the cabin . for us it was simply elegant we loved it . The card street fire did keep the tv from working but i wasn't there for tv. maybe the grill could have been in better shape but i didn't care. i will definitely come back to this cabin the next time i visit alaska . i left the fan and the vacuum sealer for others to use. the cabin was clean and comfortable and everything you would need. four thumbs up...there was two uf us !

Very rustic

  • 2 of 5

The cabin was true to it's name very rustic. We enjoyed our stay but needed more modern things such as a bathroom door, more lights in the bathroom and a TV that worked. We enjoyed the wood burning heater. refrig. crock pot, all the hot water we wanted. Suggestions for improvement: the steps need to be better secure especially the 2 steps to the cabin, the first step into the cabin needs a step up and maybe an outside light

Amenities Update

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week, had a good time & caught a lot of salmon. The cabin was clean and in good repair. Update: the side windows crank open & there are screens to keep the bugs out. With the box fan in one window, the interior is pleasant all day. There is a small refrigerator/freezer, a small chest freezer, a vac - pack machine, microwave, hot plate & crock pot. The rental agents were friendly and responsive. We had a few minor problems, but they were taken care of promptly. The nearby fish processor is very reasonable compared to the others in the Soldatna area, if you find yourself short of freezer space.
