Our mother-in-law unit is only 11 miles from the Park entrance and our 2 acre lot has spectacular 360 degree views which include the northern mountains of the national park boundary. Completely remodeled and updated for 2016 this unit has all the modern creature comforts with the feeling that you are living in the middle of the woods in Alaska.
This sweet 500sq ft mother-in-law unit has 2 bedrooms (queen bed in 1, 2-twins in the other), modern kitchen, great bathroom w/shower tub, dining table for 6, living area with sofa bed, Direct TV, high-speed WIFI & ATT 4g coverage. The custom private outdoor deck on the east side of the unit has a propane BBQ and new patio furniture & has amazing views of the Alaska Range. This is a great rental for those who want to stay off the beaten path and are on a budget.
We are located 1/4-mile off the George Parks Hwy (3), 11-miles North of Denali National Park’s only entrance Road. It will take you 10-15 minutes to drive to the Park.
Our property is a 5 hour drive from Anchorage or a 2 hour drive from Fairbanks.
Check in 4pm. Check out 11am.
We will email you driving directions and key code for entry 30 days prior to your arrival.
Access to our properties is via paved road except for the driveways which are maintained gravel. Use of gravel driveways does not violate your rental car agreement.
We collect 100% payment at time of booking. We will refund 75% if you cancel 90 days prior to your reservation. If you cancel with less than 90 days’ notice we refund 75% for the nights the unit is re-rented to another party.
A $100 Refundable Housekeeping Deposit is required. Wash your dishes (you may put them in the dishwasher and leave it running), take all your garbage out to the dumpster and clean up after yourselves and you will get your deposit returned.
You can buy your groceries and supplies in Anchorage or Fairbanks. Denali does have a nice store Great 1 Grocery & Sled Dog Liquor at mile 238.4 Parks Hwy which has most items for purchase that you might need such as fresh fruit, salads, eggs, milk, shampoo, etc.
We provide all linens, towels, hand soap, toilet paper, dish soap, sponges, trash bags & paper towels.
The coffee maker does not need filters.
We do not supply condiments, coffee, laundry soap or shampoo/conditioner. You need to bring all your own groceries and supplies.
Our kitchens are well equipped with everything you need to prepare and serve your meals.
We supply the propane for the outdoor BBQ.
You need to supply your own firewood for the outdoor fire pit. You can by bundles of wood when you buy groceries.
You can drink our water. We do not have recycling. We supply an outdoor dumpster for garbage.
95% of people who come to Denali only ride the bus 1 day. We recommend booking your bus trip well in advance. There is only 1 road so a more expensive bus takes the same route as the least expensive bus. We recommend taking the bus to Eielson Visitor Center. It’s an 8-9 hour day and you see the best part of the park. Most people don’t get off the bus except at rest stops. You can get off and hike around and wait for the next bus. If you have a large group you all may not be able to get on the next bus and there may not be seats together.
You can access the 1st 15 miles of Denali National Park’s Road with your rental vehicle and there are marked hiking trails and a visitor center.
It’s important to remember the beauty and wilderness does not end at the park border. We can highly recommend 1 day hiking out of the house, having a picnic and enjoying your family and friends. All our properties are on the park boundary and you have traveled a long way. 1 day enjoying the surroundings does not cost anything and can be quite rewarding (You are as likely to view wildlife from our living room as you are inside the park). You are living in the middle of interior Alaska.
As far as all the other organized activities in our area we recommend you book those upon arrival depending on weather and your group’s desires. Rafting, flight seeing, horseback riding, biking, golf, fishing, ATV, Jeep Tours and much more are all available and all their brochures are displayed in our homes. They are all nearby and most will pick you up at our homes.
You may call or text my (Dave) cell phone anytime. I’m happy to answer any questions or make suggestions. My number 1 priority is to make sure your group enjoys their stay in Denali and at our homes.
