Welcome to Homestead Guest Cabins, one of Alaska's best-kept secrets, located along the beautiful Glenn Highway National Scenic Byway, and surrounded by the Talkeetna Mountains on the north and the Chugach Mountains on the south. The cabin is nestled in a peaceful quiet valley surrounded by spruce and birch trees, an abundance of wild flowers, and the neighborhood moose that may just pay you a visit! We are conveniently located an easy 2 hour drive from Anchorage and 1 hour from Palmer, and just minutes away from the spectacular Matanuska Glacier. The area offers many recreational opportunities such as hiking/climbing on the glacier, river rafting, flightseeing, gold panning, hiking the many trails, fossil hunting, fishing, berry picking, 4-wheeling and snowmachining on the nearby trail systems, and amazing photographic opportunities everywhere you look! Don't let the word 'cabin' scare you off -- it is charming and cozy with all the modern conveniences, new furnishings, and tastefully decorated with artwork from local Alaskans. It has been handcrafted by your hosts, Dan and Sandy Lee, and is awaiting your arrival after a busy day exploring Alaska. Dan built the cabin from logs that he harvested across the Matanuska River and milled on his sawmill. It has a wonderful warm cozy atmosphere because of the logs, but don't think it is too rustic for you -- it has all the modern conveniences, private bathroom with shower, new queen size bed and furnishings, and is sparkling clean. Dishes, pots & pans, bedding, linens are provided and the kitchen has a full size refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, complimentary tea and coffee, and some basic food supplies/ spices. A second bedroom has been added in 2013 which has a double bed, and the cabin is heated with a TOYO stove which can be adjusted for your personal comfort level. Your get away cabin is nestled in the woods with ample parking right by your front door and just a short jaunt away from your host's log home. Hiking trails leave almost from your doorstep, and after a short hike you will be high enough to have a fantastic view of the Matanuska Glacier and the surrounding country. There are a few resident moose and if you are lucky you may have a visitor coming through around dusk or early in the morning.
