Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I had my mother and sister stay here during my daughter's graduation and it was every bit as great as we had hoped it would be. Away from busy roads with wonderful views of the Chugach Mountains. The nature center is just down the road, or Eagle River and Anchorage are close enough to be convenient.

If I end up with a full house again, I'll certainly look to see if this is available for additional guests.

We had a marvelous time at Eagle Peak Guesthouse. It was a short weekend trip, but the accommodations were wonderful. The house was clean and inviting, and the location fabulous. We would have loved to stay longer!!

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfectly clean, good beds and bedding, games, books, ... altogether a lovely place to stay in a quiet wooded area. Also, close to a small town with good restaurants and shopping, and a wonderful nature center with paths of varying length which were beautiful and secluded. Richard also provided bear spray (pricey to buy) which fortunately we did not need!

Wonderful place to come home to !!!

  • 5 of 5

The guest apartment is beautiful and immaculate. The location is wonderful. Close enough to town but out far enough to enjoy the wonders of AK. We saw moose, bears and birds. Nearby river, creeks and waterfalls. I have been coming to AK for over 20 years. This is the best accommodation we have ever had. Will definitely book again.

Great place! Will come back

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our son and I stayed here for a week in August. We absolutely loved it and were so grateful that we choose this gem over something in town. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The beds were comfy and spacious. The windows have black out shades/curtains, so it made it so we could sleep in. The bathroom is very spacious and beautiful. The kitchen is small, but we used the BBQ and were able to cook some meals. We also adopted Cooper, the owner's dog. He would be at our door in the mornings, just laying on the door mat. He would play with our son and was very lovable. If we could take him home, we would have. The Owner, Richard, was beyond helpful, informative of the area and just down right sweet. He made us feel like family and even went on a couple hikes with us. The Nature Center down the road was a great way to get out and hike. We did see moose on the road to the Nature Center.

We will for sure come back and stay here again. It was perfect for our family!!
