  • Amazing Stay!


    Stayed here with some friends over the fourth of July weekend. We came out for the Glacier View car launch, and I'm so glad we booked! The traffic coming from Anchorage was backed up for as far as I could see, but we were able to just drive down the road a few miles and park.

    I can't say enough good things about the hosts, who live in a separate residence farther up the hill. They are so incredibly kind, and have the best Alaskan stories! Out trip was immensely better for having the chance to get to know them.

    The cabin is cute and cozy, with a great selection of movies for the TV. This place is a gem, located right across from the glacier. Highly recommend!

  • Wonderful Cabin Off the Beaten Path


    This is great little property in a beautiful alpine area with lots of nearby hiking & sightseeing. The cabin is well stocked with a sweet porch and fire pit. The hosts were great and quick to respond to our requests. We asked for a BBQ Grill and it was waiting on our arrival along with 2 fresh salmon filets. That’s over the top! They were delicious! Just a minor note, a TV is pictured in the property description but no tv service provided and no WiFi (which was noted in the description). Had we known we would have brought cables to view our movies & photos. With that said we loved our stay. Thank you.
