Brand new washer and dryer for your convenience! Large front deck (20'x10'), boardwalk to facility (just 25 feet from private parking), natural cedar walls, tongue & groove pine ceilings, beams...that Alaskan rustic 'feel'. Kitchen-Aid gas barbecue, hand-made imported Italian marble shower (plenty of hot water for everyone!). We also installed a wonderful new two-person jacuzzi bath for your pleasure and romance! Please note the facility is not directly on the lake and not considered to be a 'lake view' property, the lake is 150-feet away and accessed by the boardwalk and a short path down to the water. A great and classy stand-alone facility that has a bright & airy feel and wonderful privacy. The rear faces a beautiful untouched private woods as you relax on fine furniture. Huge sliding glass door facing the woods. Living room skylight. Brand new Maytag washer and dryer for your convenience (no charge). Fresh-cut flowers and upon arrival, a special VIP guest tray of refreshments and fresh fruit! Your own private space in the woods on a private lake property. Easy to drive to, 10 minutes from town. Paved road until the last 300 yards. All underground utilities. Private parking, safe. Boardwalk to facility. Large private deck (10'x20') to sit and relax. We love our guests and if they prefer to be alone, that is wonderful too! Please tell us what it is that you so desire for your vacation or fishing for the world-famous salmon and we can be of GREAT service to connect you with local, experienced and professional guides for that truly Alaskan outdoor experience! We live here full-time. Our hand-built log home is on the property in the forest. Residential....we only have two immediate neighbors on the lake. There are other residences along the way but you experience a very 'secluded' feeling. Wildlife abounds and it is not uncommon to see eagles, moose, loons etc. right from your private deck). Taxi and C.A.R.T. Best to provide your own transportation such as a rental car at the airport in either Anchorage (3 hour drive north of us) or, in Kenai which is just 8 miles from our facilities. We also have bikes to use for free as well. Our compliments.More

About the neighbourhood
Private, secluded and quiet. We are on a private lake and this facility is called 'The Retreat' for many wonderful reasons! It is continually booked 100% of the summer season so if you are thinking about securing a reservation, please make it early in the year or, a year in advance.
How to get there
Will supply directions and additional information upon booking.
