  • The perfect getaway!


    We loved everything about the cute, cozy cabin! Beds were comfy, kitchen was stocked well to make it easy to cook in, scriptures throughout encouraged our day, and it was so peaceful. Would highly recommend it!

  • Very rural, very private, quaint house in the woods


    The main bedroom downstairs has a Queen bed but this room also contains the water heater and the washer/dryer in a modified closet with no door. This is convenient, but if you're a very light sleeper, the pinging noises that all water heaters make when heating up might be an issue. The water is supplied from a well and has a slight mineral water smell and moderately strong taste. The owner furnished bottled water, which was a nice touch. Unlike many well systems, this one has fantastic water pressure. An adjacent house to the north (100 yards away) is unoccupied and under renovation, so looks rather sloppy, but the area around the rental is very nicely attended. The driveway to the property (a shared one for 3 houses) is unmarked. To find it, turn right (north) on the first driveway you see after crossing east to west under massive power lines that cross the nicely maintained gravel road . Heat is supplied from a single source, but with strategic use of ceiling fans and a supplied floor fan, you can get the house quite uniform in temperature, easily. Bathroom is clean and plenty of towels were provided. Free WiFi is provided. Veriizon cellular signal is strong. If you like private, remote, and clean -- with all the usual modern amenitied -- this is your house.

  • Sweet cabin very well equipped but….


    When I booked the cabin I did not realize the landscape pictures were in the winter time with snow covered landscape. The truth is the spring time landscape is a different picture! There is ongoing construction around the cabin which detracts from what is an incredible cabin which was well equipped with amenities we didn’t expect. Once the construction is completed it will be a 5 star place. It’s ideally located for exploration of both the northern side and the southern side of Anchorage….. and we had several encounters with the residential moose in the area. The owner is exceptional…. Great communication and a pleasure to deal with. Would I stay here again? Absolutely yes….
