Overview

About the property

1 King size or 2 twin beds, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Enjoy the peace of the outdoors – listen to the birds and relish the tangible quiet of Alaska at its best. Sit around the fire ring and watch the local eagles soar into Alaska’s midnight sun evenings!

Our sanctuary studio has a lower level private entrance, full kitchen, full bathroom, and a King sized bed, or two twins depending on your needs.

If you are needing more space, we have a bed and breakfast that sleeps four additional people in two rooms. We have a queen in one room and a twin and fold down bed in the other room.

Our house is located near the end of a drive where it is peaceful and quiet. Our beautiful lot is surrounded by birch and spruce trees, sprinkled with vibrant flowers. We have a gorgeous, panoramic view of the Chugach and Talkeetna mountains. Occasionally we have moose wander into our yard.

Only one hour away from Anchorage Ted Stevens International Airport, you can rent a vehicle and easily find our quiet sanctuary. Free parking on site.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES:

Hike the Butte – 30 minute drive - Relatively short hike to view the Knik Glacier and Mat Valley

Hike Lazy Mountain – 20 minute drive - 3,000 ft climb for a panoramic view of the Matanuska Valley. The only thing "lazy" about the mountain is it's name.

Hike and explore the Hatcher Pass area – About 25 minute drive - endless hiking and adventure above tree line. Explore the old Independence Mine…

Reindeer Farm – 30 minute drive

Fishing: We can help you find great fishing guides. Salmon are caught in several local rivers or you can drive the Parks Highway to Homer or Seward and book a ocean sea guide to catch salmon or halibut. If you want to eat your fresh-caught fish, we have a barbecue available!

Musk Ox Farm – 10 minute drive - Take time to see the local Musk Ox herd. What a unique, archaic and beautiful animal! Babies are born the beginning of May, so you can watch the family interaction.

Golf: Four golf courses in the area.

White Water Rafting within an hours drive

Glaciers: You can drive one hour up the Glenn Highway which is truly one of the most spectacular drives in the world and see the Matanuska Glacier. You can actually walk on the glacier.
