The SpaceOur 2000 square foot home is a one level ranch style house. It sits on the bluff above Matanuska River at the base of beautiful Pioneer Peak in Palmer Alaska. The one level ranch style home features an open concept kitchen/living room with soaring vaulted ceilings, beautiful floor to ceiling stack stone fireplace, 3 bedrooms (master bedroom: queen bed, guest room: queen bed, 3rd bedroom: full bed) 2 bathrooms and full laundry room. The master bedroom with 5 piece en suite offers privacy and relaxation. To see moose lumbering through the neighborhood is a treat in any season or in the summer watch black bears perusing the river bed, especially during the salmon spawning season; best viewed at a distance with binoculars. Enjoy the outdoor fire ring for foil dinners and roasting s'mores and if you're here at the right time pick fresh raspberries for your breakfast. In the summer take advantage of the 20+ hours of daylight and do everything under the sun-LITERALLY! Hike, camp, fish, hunt, explore, shop, swim. Going south, all the way through Anchorage, past Alyeska, through the mountain tunnel to Whittier (the only way to get there; not recommended for claustrophobes) take a beautiful cruise out of Whittier into Prince William Sound and watch million year old glaciers calf. Ride the tram or hike or even take the challenge and run to the top of Alyseka Ski Resort to check out the mountain and valley views then explore the village at the base. To the north, visit the historic town of Talkeetna, maybe you'll meet the mayor who is a cat, or enjoy the scenic drive to the town of Denali, and take a Flight Seeing Trip over and around Denali, (no longer called Mount McKinley). Then to the east of us drive up to Hatcher Pass. Hike around old Independence Mine and learn of life as a gold miner in the 1800's. The list is endless. Our MatSu retreat is magical for a family Christmas gathering, complete with all the holiday decorations. After a brisk day of XC skiing at Hatcher Pass or down hill skiing at Alyeska plan on a night cozier up to a warm, festive fireplace in a Christmas tree lit family room, popcorn, movies or family game night. The quaint town of Palmer itself offers historic insight to the early settlers. We are a water tower town with lots of community pride. We'll leave you a list of our favorite restaurants, artists, politicians, Farmers Markets, and even a great place for a pedicure, full service day spa or a steamed barber straight edge shave. Local taxi service is available but a rental car is recommended. The great thing about our Matanuska Susitna Valley Retreat is you can have stay-cations in the middle of your vacation like exploring the private HOA maintained river trails, enjoy Friday Fling Farmers Market in downtown Palmer, check out the Visitor's Center and learn of the 100's of years of the valley's history then walk through the Palmer gardens. See if your town is on the world sign post. There is plenty to do locally as well as excursions over multiple days. Guest AccessJust a few minutes walk away our guests will have access to hiking trails, fishing, and sport vehicle trails. Eight miles north is the town of Wasilla where the heartbeat of America, Walmart, proudly serves the Mat-Su Valley, Valley Cinema showing latest released movies, pubs serving their private brews of beers and ales. To the south 40 miles is Anchorage with easy access to Ted Stevens International Airport and downtown metropolitan and Native Alaskan shopping. Interaction with GuestsGenerally we are living in an apartment on the property when we are hosting guests. We are available to answer questions or help out where needed. We usually interact a lot with our guests but we don't need to if privacy and retreat is preferred. At times we may need to access the house but we will always knock or make arrangements with our guests beforehand. The NeighborhoodThe reason why all the people in this neighborhood live here is: #1-the spectacular mountain views #2- River Bend is a unique sort of neighborhood in Alaska because it is meticulously planned and developed, yet rustic, and has a high code of maintenance Getting AroundMat-Su valley is considered to be very rural so public transportation isn't readily offered. Taxi service is available but a rental car is recommended. Other Things to NoteAs exciting as it is to see wild animals; guests must remember THEY ARE WILD! (The animals, not the guests) Should moose or bear or a fox come into the yard DO NOT approach them. Photograph from a far and zoom in because no matter how fast a person thinks they can run....the animal can run faster! It is spectacular to to see the majesty of a bull moose so be smart and keep your distance to ensure the memory will always be a good one!

              From Palmer the drive to the cabin in the woods is 7 miles of paved roads. On your way you might want to stop at the scenic pull out just a couple of miles from Palmer and take in the Matanuska River and the Knik River valley. On a clear day you will see the Knik glacier. Don’t forget your camera. The cabin in the woods is located on 5 rural acres with a fairly steep driveway up the mountain. No problem in summer for a car. The cabin is all log . One bedroom, large living room, spacious kitchen and bathroom in 576 sq ft. The second bedroom is a separate 12 x 12 cabin just steps from the main cabin. Tastefully furnished with Alaskan art and artifacts yet rustic. The kitchen has full size stainless steel appliances and is well stocked with everything you will need except for food. The bedroom has a queen size bed. The deck out front looks out over the valley and is covered with clear panels to let in all the light. It is 10’ by 24’ and features a gas grill, table and chairs for 4 and lots of extra room for folding deck chairs. Beside the deck is a fire pit well stocked with wood. Our location in the famous Matanuska Valley gives you a centralized yet rural location to start your exploration of the great state of Alaska starting from the spacious front covered deck. The view stretches from the Knik River valley in the east , scans all the way along the Chugach Mountain Range including 3300foot(1005 meters) high Pioneer Peak to the Cook Inlet and far off Anchorage in the South West. From the Muskox farm just 15 minutes down the road to beautiful Hatcher Pass and its Historic hard rock gold mines to the Pioneer Museum in downtown Palmer you will run out of time before you run out of things to see and do. A 1 hour drive north up the Glenn Highway(hwy 1) is some of the most spectacular scenery the road system has to offer. At the end of that hour you will be at the Matanuska Glacier for the photo op of a lifetime. A must do drive. On the way back don’t forget to stop off at Sheep Mtn. lodge for a wonderful meal. Be sure and glass the mountain peaks behind the lodge for its namesake, Dall sheep. An hour the opposite direction is the eagle river nature center amid towering peaks on three sides. Walking trails will take you into the heart of this beautiful valley. If you haven't had enough hiking on the way back you can drive up the mountain to Thunderbird falls(a short hike) and beautiful Eklutna lake, the main source of Anchorages drinking water. Driving north on the Parks Highway (hwy 3) is also scenic with lots of places to stop and take pictures. The turnoff to Talkeetna is 2 hrs from the cabin. If it is a clear day the trip into Talkeetna could yield a fantastic view of Mt McKinley from the pull out just before you start down the hill into town. Once back out to the main highway continue north and look for the pull out once you have crossed Hurricane Gulch. This 1050 ft (320 meters) span is a breathtaking 254 feet(77 meters) above the white water of Hurricane Creek. Another 63 miles will put you at the turnoff to Denali Park. This is a long day trip so as evening approaches, even though the sun doesn’t set until close to midnight be on the look out for moose and caribou on the way home. In this area everyone is on 5 acre lots so there is plenty of privacy and it is very quiet. Most of the time you are hearing nothing but wind through the trees and the birds chirping.

Other Things to NoteQUIET TIME is between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM. NOTE: Check out time on Sundays is before 10:30 AM. Please do not leave the kitchen unattended when the stove is on! Only the number of guests who are accounted for in the reservation can stay. When walking on trails around the property, your chances of seeing wildlife are high. It's best to see them from a distance. For your safety, please sing, talk or make some kind of frequent noise. This will alert the moose in the area of your approach. Always be alert of your surroundings. Moose, especially momma moose, are NOT docile like cattle. They can be very dangerous. More folks are killed in Alaska by moose than by bears (both very rare, and usually if they are caught by surprise and/or have babies with them). If you see a moose, stop walking. Then slowly turn and walk back from where you came. If a moose's ears are down flat against his/her head, he/she is agitated and may charge. May and June are particularly noteworthy, as this is calving season. It is a good idea to keep your cell phone with you when you are in the woods. Please note that the fence around the vegetable garden is electric, and delivers quite a shock if touched. We have a chocolate lab named Daphne. She is an outdoor dog, and if she sees you coming up the driveway she will greet you. No need to fear; she loves people to pieces and just wants you to throw a stick for her. She has tons of allergies, so please don't feed her. She is also not allowed in the rental space.

Guided Salmon fishing with my husband, Dan. All you need is a license, warm clothes and food. Fish for King salmon until July 13. Silver salmon arrive mid-July through August. We can package, freeze and ship your catch. Kenai Fjords. Several options for day cruises. Some include special packages which include hotel & Sealife Center passes. Also have kayaking trips; they provide everything. Alaska Sealife Center. Much more than an aquarium. Started and funded by the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill of 1989 to rehab injured sea life. Allow about 2 hours. Non-profit! Alaska Wildlife & Conservation. You’ve got to stop here either coming or going. You can drive through with several pull off locations or you can park and walk it. They take in orphaned large game animals. Rehab & release (if possible). Most notable is the wood bison. They purchased a few from Canada, bred & raised them for years. Released a new herd in 2015 back into the Alaska wilderness. My favorite is the new bear bridge. Black on one side, Brown on the other. All non-profit! Whittier Tunnel. You can’t drive to Whittier without going through the tunnel. North America’s longest tunnel at 2.5 miles. It is shared with the railroad and has scheduled vehicle usage (to Whittier on the half hour/from Whitter on the hour). There is a $13 fee for using the tunnel. Seward Highway. Driving from Anchorage to Seward is spectacular scenery. Don’t hesitate to stop at any number of pull offs to take in the view. Look for Dall sheep in the rocks and beluga whales on the incoming tide. If you see several cars pulled over, you’ll want to see what that are seeing. Drive with headlights on and observe the 5 vehicle rule. Alyeska Resort. The crown jewel of Mt Alyeska in Girdwood. If you’re hungry, take the tram up 2,300 feet to the top and enjoy Seven Glaciers Restaurant ($$$$$). Make reservations and you’ll get complimentary tram ride. Another great spot for dinner in Girdwood is Double Musky Inn. OMG!!! My favorite; I’ve never had a bad anything there. I have their cookbook and have made several of their items. ($$$$). Recommend getting there when they open, otherwise you might have a wait, no reservations taken. Talkeetna. A great way to see Denali on limited time is by air. There are several Denali flightseeing tours. Search to find one that will fit your time and budget. Some will depart from Anchorage, but I think for the most bang for buck leave from Talkeetna. You’ll enjoy visiting Talkeetna for a couple hours either way. And check out the zip lining. I’ve heard it’s one of the best. Anchorage Museum. Spend a couple hours in Anchorage visiting the Museum and Native Heritage Center Other Things to NoteWe have 3 acres, feel free to roam around.

Our lakes are close at hand and annually stocked with rainbow trout and landlocked salmon. Palmer has a tantalizing variety of places to eat. It's worth spending a day just exploring historic downtown Palmer or enjoying the Palmer Museum. Or, you may wish to spend the day at Independence Mine at Hatcher Pass, only 17 miles from Palmer. For the athletically inclined, there are innumerable trails to hike. Wildflowers and wildlife abound. Or, just drive along the Glenn Highway National Historic Byway. The views are stunning.
