Cabin Holiday Rental
This is a new cabin, built just one year ago. Sleeping for two people (one up in loft with full-sized bed, one down on ground level single-size bed), it sits just 100-feet from the private lake. Stained-glass entry door window (Orca's and Alaskan mountains!), it also has an imported Italian marble kitchenette top, brass sink and faucet, stained-glass overhead variable dimmer switch light, custom hand-made cabinet and shelving, new carpeting and is spotless! Comes with all silverware, kitchenette eating table at front window. Safe, warm and secure, the view is wonderful, (we have only two other residences on the entire lake!) and it is nature everywhere! Let the loons on the lake at night sing you to sleep. Centrally located (just 10 minutes to town), it is a non-commercial environment an...This is a new cabin, built just one year ago. Sleeping for two people (one up in loft with full-sized bed, one down on ground level single-size bed), it sits just 100-feet from the private lake. Stained-glass entry door window (Orca's and Alaskan mountains!), it also has an imported Italian marble kitchenette top, brass sink and faucet, stained-glass overhead variable dimmer switch light, custom hand-made cabinet and shelving, new carpeting and is spotless! Comes with all silverware, kitchenette eating table at front window. Safe, warm and secure, the view is wonderful, (we have only two other residences on the entire lake!) and it is nature everywhere! Let the loons on the lake at night sing you to sleep. Centrally located (just 10 minutes to town), it is a non-commercial environment and as with our other two facilities and is a stand-alone unit. A wonderful new deck will allow you to sit and watch the wildlife, enjoy a grilled meal on your furnished barbecue grill or enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee in the morning before you head out to your Alaskan adventures! Bathroom/shower are new and private, just 3 steps from the door! You walk from the entrance of our facilities on a private wooden boardwalk right to your cabin. Comes furnished with coffee maker and coffee, kitchen sink, charcoal grill (you supply your own charcoal), all linens, towels, wash cloths etc. After you catch your salmon, come back and grill them right on the deck and watch the setting sun and maybe see wild animals out front. The cabin is completely handmade and sports the fresh scent of the natural woods that were used in its construction (cedar!). It is a good nights sleep with knowing you are taken care of in every manner possible. Its small, seems everyone likes it that way judging by the the public comments about it. This is the kind of place that you fall in love with and get a good nights sleep. All towels, wash cloths furnished. Spotless clean and sanitized daily. Thank you and we look forward to meeting you! No smoking inside any facility. Smoking permitted outside, cans supplied. It is a very small place so if you are large people or, enjoy a much larger facility, please refer to our other places we have. More

We stayed in the cabin closest to the lake and had wonderful peaceful views. Although we weren’t lucky enough to see any wildlife the location offered a very relaxing atmosphere. If you’d like to get away while staying close to town, do make a reservation....More

About the neighbourhood
We are located just 10-minutes away from the town of Soldotna, Alaska yet, we are in the wilderness! Wildlife abounds! It is a natural environment, very non-commercial atmosphere! No 'hotel-like' rooms or giant lodges here. We have only two other residents on our entire small lake. Hiking, centrally located and easily to drive here with any automobile!. It is all pavement except the last 300 yards to our place. Lined with giant cottonwood, birch and Alaskan black spruce, your drive is easy and please go slow getting here as the Alaskan moose are everywhere! During the day you will get to actually see the Alaskan bush pilots going overhead carrying fishermen, hikers, bear viewers etc. to their wilderness destinations. Just minutes away there is a wilderness fly-out facility and we will be v...
