Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Gakona, Alaska
An 'Earthly Paradise,' we think so! Our custom built log home sits on a high bluff overlooking the mighty Copper River, with a jaw-dropping view of the Wrangell Mtns. Our 2 bedroom log home is an excellent place to base your Alaskan adventure.

You'll get the whole house, 3 acres of privacy, an amazing view, hammock on the bluff and all the amenities you need. The house was custom built by us, and has an open floor plan. The master bedroom faces the mountains and the stunning view! Did we already mention that? The furniture is all brand new, and the decor is totally Alaskan. You will be off the beaten path, but within striking distance of much of the greatness Alaska has to offer!

You'll have tv and wi-fi, cell phone towers are near-by. There is river rafting and king salmon fishing within minutes on the Gulkana...

Thank you so much for your feedback! We love the view too, and think most independent travelers will find the place very accomodating to their needs. It's not a Hotel.. it's a home, with a fantastic view!

The cabin is located on a bluff overlooking the Wrangle Mountain range, and it has a sensational view of Mt. Drum from the first floor living and dining areas, and from the master bedroom on the second floor. The cabin is conveniently located just a...More

About the neighbourhood
Just up the road from the Historic Gakona Lodge and the fine dining at the Carriage House restaurant. Gakona is a great place to base many adventures from including fishing, flightseeing and hiking. It is a great community with truly Alaskan characters, and away from the hub-ub of Glennallen. It has a full fronted view of Wrangell St. Elias National Park, and the mighty Copper River.
