    Well situated between Anchorage and Seward but quite far of everything. But it was what we wanted. Beautiful house with all the commoditiy inside walking distance fir historic Hope. There’s a convenience store really close to help but do the grocery in Anchorage. A lot of things to do : trek, animal’s conservatory, scenic road, state park, salmon river close to the house. We really enjoy our staying over there. Special thanks to the house manager Tom who has been fantastic for us. I recommend this place all the way

  • Great Gathering Place Away From the City


    We chose Moonshine as our "hang out point" because it has a great living and dining area that easily accommodated our group of 9. (Most wanted their own rooms, so we rented a nearby spot for extra bedrooms.) Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare full meals. Easy walk or drive into the heart of Hope. We LOVED it! Will likely send friends and be back for another stay!

  • Awesome Everything


    Great location and great recommendations for local hikes. We fished out of Soldotna and Seward. Caught and released 60 + salmon right in town

  • Beautiful house


    This house was wonderful! Very clean and stocked with anything you think you may need. The host was very informative and helpful. The little town of Hope was cute and quiet during the week. Friday night we went to a local cafe for live music and wine. We hiked Hope Point and just enjoyed the area. Seward was close enough to drive to for the day. I was very pleased with my stay at this property and would highly recommend it.

  • Beautiful Cabin, Resourceful Host


    My family and I enjoyed our quick retreat to this cozy, comfortably cabin in Hope. Our host gave us plenty of tips on how to maximize our stay in this quaint little town. We enjoyed the museum, coffee shops and even ended our stay with some live music down by the water. We would gladly recommend to family and friends to stay here.
