About The Owner

In 1998 my wife and kids and I made a once in a lifetime trip to Alaska little did I know what that trip would do to me. 15 years later and I sttill cant get enough.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

Why The Owner chose Sterling

Sterling is centrally located between Homer 90 min (halibut capital of the world) and Seward 90 min A beautiful must see destination and fishing port. We are 3 min from our fishing hole at the Kenai and yet we are only 10min to down town Soldotna. We can sit right on our porch with our favorite beverage and watch the wildlife stroll through the property. Quiet and perfect

What makes this cabin unique

You cant say enough about the fishing ( kings, sockeye, silvers, pinks,) not to mention trophy trout and dolly varden. theres also a lake canoe system right behind our home with all the lakes connected by creeks and streems or you can canoe all the way to the cook inlet. and canoe rental and shuttle 2 miles from the cabin

Your property was clean as a whistle and exactly as described! The beds were beyond comfortable and all 6 of us talked about it every morning! From the fishing gear to the coolers to the appliances to the towels to the washer and dryer...why wouldn't we return? We'll sorry have us HOOKED on BOTH Alaska AND your property!!!! Also, please if this helps ANY of you on deciding where to book, pay attention to this next sentence...."Curtis everything you told us to do, we did and it literally made our trip PRICELESS!!!" So thank you thank you thank you from ALL of us....we can't wait to come back!!!!!

Great home with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home (very clean and well taken care of) with gorgeous scenery. Nice location. We processed our own fish which was extremely convenient. All we needed to supply was bags. We loved that there was a washer and dryer which is especially convenient with kids. There was fishing poles, multiple sizes of rubber boots, coolers that we could use to transport our fish back. Curtis is very knowledgeable and more than willing to answer honestly to any questions that you may have. We will definitely be staying here again. Thank you Curtis for all your help with getting us pointed in the right direction for our charters and fishing on our own. We really appreciate it!

Incredible Cabin/Location

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at this cabin for five days fishing between the Russian and Homer. The location is perfect for working the Kenai Peninsula....and the amenities (freezer, washer, dryer, etc.) are even better. Thanks for everything. Hope to visit again next season!

Comfy, Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults spent 4 nights at the Fish On Cabin. We had a great time. It was perfectly located for the activities we had planned (Fjords National Park cruise, Homer, Kenai, etc...). Curtis was so responsive to questions and gave us lots of great suggestions. The Moose is Loose Bakery was visited more than once during our stay (the apple fritters were fabulous)! Sarah (local property manager) was also a great help. It was really nice to have a washer/dryer on-site. Only one suggestion, with 5 women and 1 man (my Dad), we could have used another mirror or two. Thanks Curtis for a great stay. Can't wait to come back.

Awesome cabin in Sterling, AK

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Camps cabin in Sterling was over and above our expectations! The four of us, (hard core fishermen) had all the amenities we needed.

The 2 freezers were perfect for rotating the fish as we brought them in, and the fish preparing tables, towels, vacuum packer etc. were great.

The cabin was near the main highway, which was very nice, and very private. Mady the golden lab came to visit us daily, made it feel like home!

We will definitely book this again for next year!

Thanks again Curtis and Sarah!

Our stay in Sterling

  • 4 of 5

We chose this location as it seemed like a good halfway point for everything we wanted to do in the Kenai Peninsula, and it is! The cabin was easy to find with the directions provided by Sarah. Sarah was so quick with a return call that her call came in while I was leaving her a message! The owners are easy to work with. The cabin itself is fully equipped for fisherman, however; we did not come to fish - maybe next time? The decor does give you the fishing fever!

The home is very neat and clean and has all of the basics - we ran out for paper products and dishwashing soap, but nothing major. The only complaint I have is the bunk room bed (bottom) and futon/sofa are killers on the back (my parents got the good bed ;) ). Definitely 5 stars if the bed were more comfy. Note that there is no internet connection, but excellent 4G, so I used my phone as a wireless hotspot to upload some amazing photos.

The cabin is within ten miles (I think) of Soldotna, and within 20 miles or so of Kenai - everything you need can be found in those towns. We spent a full day traveling to Homer, another to Seward, and a third visiting the wildlife refuge areas between the coast at Kenai and into Sterling. Amazing scenery and wildlife - more than one moose with babes near the cabin. All I can say is ... this visit was far too short. The Peninsula is an amazing area for those who love peace, quiet and the out-of-doors. The rivers and lakes are amazing - breathtaking glacier rivers, streams, ponds, lakes ... EVERYWHERE! Fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities abound. The locals who run roadside shops (Tom at the Rock Place, for example) are friendly and tell wonderful stories. Homer and Seward are not overly kitschy-touristy, and offer plenty of recreational opportunities as well as seafood to die for. Cooper Landing is the home of all things "river" - you can raft, fish, boat, gawk ... Just get out there! Thank you for the stay!

Owner's Response: Aimee I'm so sorry you found the bed in the guest room to be uncomfortable they are less then 3 years old. I know they are not the best quality beds on the market we have had many guests and have never had a complaint. (noted) when I replace them I will try to do better. As for the futon it is a futon made for overflow guest. probably better for younger guest and hardy fishermen who fish day and night and need little sleep. I do only supply 2 rolls of paper products for all guests and dish soap but do not supply dish washer soap. I am sorry for the back aches I caused and hope It didn't spoil your fist trip to Alaska. From all of us at Fish on thank you for your stay Curtis
