We offer a private Alaskan cabin built in 2011 in a quiet, rural setting. There are wide trails in our woods for walking or skiing and mountain trekking ones nearby. A perfect place to stay while you're visiting in the Matanuska Valley!
We provide coffee and tea and cooking gear. Please shop for your food needs before you come.
We have a play-n-pack and a small inflatable bed available for a baby, toddler or child.
We will discount for Alaskan residents needing to stay in the Matanuska Valley for medical treatment. Please inquire.
You are welcome to use our walking trails around the 35 acres. There is also an outdoor pavilion and barbeque you are welcome to use. If you have any questions or need directions to trails or other local activities, please enquire with us for ideas; we would be happy to help out! Please avoid going into the horse pasture.

We may or may not be available during the day as we own an engineering business in Palmer. We would be happy to help out with finding local activities or hiking trails when we are home or you can text us any time.
We have had a lot of bookings for visiting relatives of Matanuska Valley residents. The cabin is independent of our house and we aren't disturbed by any amount of comings and goings. It's a great place to recuperate from a long Alaska touring day or a busy one with your valley grandkids. Please note that we have a young Bernese Mountain Dog; very friendly. Keski may bark at your first arrival, but very soon after that she will consider you her best friend.
We have a strict non-smoking rule for the cabin and property.
We have a horse pasture with 2 horses. The inside of the pasture is off limits to guests. The white rope fence is actually an electric-type, which is good information if you have a child with you. Wandering through the barn is fine!
My husband, Steve and I were married in 1980 and have 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren. We built our own log home and moved into it in 1984, right after the birth of our second son. By 1990 we had a third son and a daughter and built on a timberframe addition, again doing most of the work ourselves. We live on 10 acres of woods outside of Palmer, Alaska, less than a half mile from where Steve grew up. His mom still lives there on her own - and we make the walk through the woods to visit fairly often.
We own an engineering business based out of Palmer. Steve does a fair bit of work-related travelling about the state, often by helicopter, and has had a lot of interesting experiences. I keep the books for the business and our oldest son works for us out of an office in Fairbanks. The other 3 children also live in the state, which is nice as family is important to us.
