Overview

About the property

private, secluded cabins located near some of Alaskas most beautiful places!

We are a small family owned Cabin and Vacation Rental property in the heart of the Matanuska Valley Moose Range, just outside the town of Palmer Alaska. Our central location in the Matanuska Valley is the perfect location to use as a jumping off point for all your adventures in South Central Alaska. Located just a few miles outside of Palmer, you will find our 35 acre property nestled in the woods at the base of the Arkose ridge in the Talkeetna Range.

Our Cabins, recently featured on HGTV's Living Alaska, are decorated with various Alaska themes, each with its own cozy charm. All cabins have a full kitchen with everything you'll need for meals, full bath (indoor even!) TV, DVD, Phone, extra linens, pillows, blankets and access to onsite laundry facilities and much more. With miles of trails to enjoy and Moose Creek nearby there is plenty to explore right from your porch. A short hike from your cabin steps will bring you to the Arkose Ridge which nears 5000ft in elevation. Moose and their calves frequent the yards of each cabin so keep your cameras ready. You may also have the opportunity to see other neighborhood residents such as Bald Eagles, Fox, Ptarmigan, Grouse, Magpies, Hummingbirds to name just a few.

Our goal will be to provide each of our newest friends with the best and most personalized service Alaska can provide. We provide our guests the option of ordering your favorite drinks, food, snacks, ahead of your arrival and we will have those specific items pre-stocked in your cabin the day of arrival. We don’t want you to spend your valuable time in Alaska shopping or searching for your favorite goodies, so let us do the shopping for you. This service has A small additional fee and the cost of the groceries.

Please do keep us in mind when dreaming about your perfect Alaska Vacation and we look forward to making new friends and your stay at Moose Wallow Cabins as pleasant and comfortable as possible. If you would like more information please don't hesitate to call, message or email us and we'll do our very best to provide you with any information you may need.

Perfect little cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a great little cabin with everything you could need for a nice stay. We were looking for something near Anchorage for one night before we began our travels further east and this cabin was perfect. Not one for hotels and crowds, this place set the tone for the beginning of what turned out to be an amazing trip through Alaska. It is set off the road with a beautiful wooded forest and a nice area to sit outside and make a fire. There are other cabins nearby but you don't feel their presence or see them. If in the area again would definitely stay here again.

short stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and cozy. Only wish we had had more time time to stay. We got in late and never got to meet the owners, but the process was still flawless.

Quiet. Clean. Slightly remote yet still close to Palmer

  • 4 of 5

The cabin worked well for my needs and expectations. I myself prefer a slightly remote location to a hotel any day. It was quiet and clean. There is no reliable cell coverage at the cabin but there is wifi. There is reliable cell coverage maybe three miles away basically at the intersection of Buffalo Mine Rd and the Glen Hwy. The cabin is maybe a total of eight miles from all the amenities most will want or need in Palmer. The owners were great to deal with.

Cross country skiing right from your door!

Close to everything you can think of! Right here in Palmer we have Hatchers Pass which is only 15 minutes away, where you can hike, pick blueberries, ski, xcountry ski, Snow board and even pan for gold! We also have a Muskox farm with tours, a reindeer Farm and the Matanuska and Knik rivers. In August, Palmer is the home of the Alaska State Fair, where you can immerse yourself in the culture, try delicious foods and ride on amusement park rides!

An hour long scenic drive north right off the Glenn highway is the Matanuska Glacier where you can walk on the glacier! 90 minutes in the other direction is Talkeetna and if you're a lucky person, you will catch glimpses of Denali along the way.

Anchorage is just an hour south and you can continue for about 80 miles and visit The Wildlife Preserve, portage glacier and much more!

Let us know and we will help you book flight seeing tours, zip line, and even dog sledding on a glacier!
