Interaction with guests
We don't want to bother you during your stay unless you need help, have questions or just want to share stories.
Other things to note
Enjoy the outdoor fire pit & BBQ for foil dinners and roasting s'mores.
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 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.
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.
The great thing about our Matanuska Susitna Valley is you can enjoy 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. There is plenty to do locally as well as excursions over multiple days.
