    Had a great stay. Beds were comfy. Big kitchen with everything you need to cook your own meals, just bring your own food. We were very comfortable at this home and did some relaxing. On first outing we locked wrong lock at the house, so coming back were were locked out. Lucky for us Michele was available and she helped us to get into house. Thank you Michele. All in all, we love staying there and would certainly stay there again. Three Sisters from Texas.

  • Perfect Stay


    We were in Palmer to celebrate my Uncle’s 80th birthday, my husband 65th birthday, an anniversary and family reunion. The location could not have been better!

  • Well furnished and clean!


    Great spot of you need to spend time in the Palmer/Wasilla area. House was very clean and had all available amenities needed for a comfortable trip. I would just add a little more lighting to the living area (another lamp or 2)
