The house was clean and cozy. The waterfront experience with the Kayaks is what we enjoyed best. We paddled all the way to the south end, about a 20 min paddle, and were able to get some amazing views of Denali. Caught a couple small pike from the dock with the poles provided.
We stayed here for the first half of our honeymoon at the end of September and it was great! A perfect house for what we wanted. My husband loved being able to fish right from the backyard and I loved the swing! It's pretty secluded, do keep that in mind, but I would definitely recommend this place!
We enjoyed Christmas at the cabin, everything was well setup and stocked. Great sleeping arrangements and well stocked kitchen. Our only suggestion would be to update/upgrade the satellite tuner and TV upstairs. They worked but would be much nicer in HD like downstairs.
Our group of 7 women spent the first 8 days of our bucket list AL trip in Girdwood and surrounding areas. We decided that for our final 4 days, we just wanted some relaxing down time. This cabin was perfect! The cabin is equipped with everything it says. It was very clean and organized. Unfortunately for us, it rained all but the last day we were there. But we were able to get out on the lake with the paddle boards, kayak, and paddle boat and had such a fun time. I can't imagine how great it would be when the weather is nice and able to do that everyday. Even got a little fishing in, caught one, but the BIG one got away! We did go to Denali National park and as noted on previous reviews, it did take us about 2 1/2-3 hours to get there. We took the afternoon tour so we didn't have to leave real early. It does make for a long day, but since daylight is endless, it really wasn't that bad. Just a couple of suggestions for future renters. Make sure you bring everything you need (food and condiments) because the first time down the 12 miles on Oilwell Rd took us 45 min to drive. Of course it was raining, but the road has a lot of pot holes. Hopefully it's a little better now because we saw a crew working on it the day we left. You just don't want to spend your time driving when you should be enjoying and relaxing here. Second, bring lots of bug spray! I don't know if it was because it was raining, but the mosquitos were voracious. We had thought ahead, so we were ok. Overall, this cabin was such a great quiet retreat. A wonderful place to get away and just enjoy!
What a wonderful location, my family has spent time on the Kenai ( Girdwood, Homer) and were looking for something different. This delightful property was just perfect. Very private and intimate. We enjoyed exploring the local area of Trapper Creek and Amber Lake. Talkeetna was super cool, my 9 year old daughter even loved the place. Well she would love anyplace that had a cat as a former mayor.Well worth the drive from Anchorage, we are considering a fall or spring trip next time. This home has everything a family needs to have a cozy comfortable visit.
If you are looking for a peaceful lake experience this is a perfect location. The lake is quiet and calm offering amazing views of the sky. If you are fortunate to hit it on warm days the swimming is refreshing. There is plenty of nice water equipment to use and the outdoor patio offers wonderful lake views. The cabin has everything you could imagine needing and is very spacious and roomy so great for our family of four or for larger groups. The cabin is isolated down a dirt road so a great place to go if you want to get away. If you are thinking of day tripping to Denali or further north from here you should be mindful of the distance of travel. We definitely loved our stay here but something to note about this VRBO is that there are caretakers who oversee this property and although extremely lovely folks there is an engagement with them that was different then other VRBO we have experienced. So I think it is good to know that it is a package deal. Lastly we did not see this anywhere in the posting prior to renting but once arrived noted in the visitor book that there was a recommended 15% gratuity for the caretakers.
Everything was great (especially the caretakers!)
We absolutely loved our stay in your beautiful cabin. We spent time on the lake using the canoes and paddleboat. We sat around a campfire and even had a fire in the wood stove a couple evenings due to the cooler temps. Your little spot in Alaska was exactly what we were looking for. You had everything we needed to cook our own meals and the beds were the most comfy we have ever had in a vacation rental. We went to Denali and spent a day in Talkeetna and we loved it all! We will definitely be back!
What an amazing location to have a little house right on Amber Lake! The paddle boat and the kayaks were a great bonus as well as the fire ring near the water. It was quiet and private and perfect. We saw the Aurora on the first and third nights, (amazing), a moose on the second day while driving the gravel road out and on our last day we had the pleasure of spending time with Nancy and Hal who manage the property. I can’t say enough about what wonderful people they are! They invited us to their home to spend the afternoon there, meeting their dogs and exploring the area a little. It was fantastic all around!
Clean & peaceful. We absolutely enjoyed our stay at amber lake, my husband hopes to make it out again to “properly fish”.
