We loved going out on the lake and enjoying the wildlife. The resident swans are beautiful! The place was very clean and had everything you need, plus some. It was a little difficult to find because Google Maps would not bring it up, but we figured it out. Would gladly stay again!

Private lakefront retreat

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with this rental. It looks as if it was just built. Everything is new, comfortable and very clean. There were only two of us but it certainly has room for more.

It is so quiet, just you and the great outdoors. We picked up groceries in Glennallen before we got there, then just made ourselves at home. I was fortunate to meet Roxanne who was very friendly and helpful. She even shared some fresh moose burger with us. What a treat!!

There is a small bookshelf of books which I always enjoy checking out. We also did a day trip to Wrangell-St.Elias National Park, the largest in the U.S.!!! I would highly recommend Roxanne's lakefront home to anyone traveling the Glenn Hwy.

Wonderful house..Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in the property for 1 day. We really wish we could have stayed longer. The host personally welcomed us and was very friendly. The house was nice, well-stocked, very comfortable and spacious. But we loved the location the most - at the end of the road, in front of a scenic lake. The views from the home and balcony were amazing as well.

Beautiful property in a stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this rental! The apartment is beautifully decorated and very well taken care of. It had absolutely everything that I needed for a comfortable stay. The property is equally beautiful. Watching the sunrise over the lake, hearing the owls in the mornings, and simply looking out over the landscaped yard and lake was such a treat. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

Roxanne's place is an awesome find with an amazing view of lake. We arrived late but Roxanne and his family were very accommodating. We stayed there for a short time, but we had an amazing time over there. Everything in the cabin was picture perfect. The main bedroom, kitchen and washroom were very clean, spacious stuffed with all essential goodies. They also welcomed us to use their paddle boat. I am definitely coming back when I visit Alaska next time. If you plan to go to Matanuska, Glennallen or Wrangler St Elias or Valdez, this is the best bet for your night stay. Highly recommended!
