Photos and Description of the Eagle River vacation cabin rental

Authentic Alaskan Homestead Nestled in Eagle River Valley

Nestled in the heart of the Chugach Mountains, this Alaskan homestead boasts tranquility, breathtaking scenery, and is located minutes away from some of the finest hiking trails Alaska has to offer and only fifteen minutes from downtown Anchorage. Built in 1952, this family owned property has been recently remodeled and updated with modern appliances. The homestead comes fully furnished and offers visitors an authentic taste of the Last Frontier- Alaskan handcrafted artwork, local wildlife & fish mounts, and vintage photographs from a simpler time.

Guests are encouraged to wander the 3.5 acre lot, fire-up the outdoor grill, and search the Eagle River valley for Dall sheep, moose, bears (brown and black), and eagles. Adventurers and photographers alike will enjoy the close proximity to Chugach State Park, the Eagle River Nature Center, and glacially fed Eagle River. After a day of adventuring, guests can finish off their day with a log fire, glass of wine, and favorite television show (DVD player and cable provided).

Venture down to Chugach State Park to explore the half-million acres of rugged, unspoiled terrain that provides endless recreational opportunities year-round. Whether you prefer frontcountry trails, backcountry bushwhacking, or exploring the Eagle River Nature Center, this property has all the amenities and activities you could hope for!
