We loved the place. It was a significant part of our Alaska experience. Heating with wood brought back the memories. Julia and Art conveyed a sense of the kind of people who go to Alaska, what what is all about, and how it is different. Most of all, they are people we wish we had known all our lives. Special thanks for the support and advice which helped me overcome my self-inflicted car problem.
The ultimate Alaskan hut: remote, near a lake, woodstove inside. Nice and cosy. Julia and her husband are warm and welcoming and communicates clearly. Wonderful people.
The hosts greeted us and described how they built the cabin. Pleasantly surprised that "rustic" includes a fire going in the wood stove and plenty of instantly hot water. The loon call at bedtime was a nice bonus. Lovely people; unfortunately they are moving and closing the BnB.
We loved the rustic cabin. It was so quaint and beautiful. Getting to use the canoe on the lake was great, but my favorite part was doing yoga in the front yard, looking at all the wild flowers. The cabin was close enough to Wasilla for us to grab some essentials (food, drugstore, etc) but yet far enough away to be serene and peaceful. Julia and her husband were really friendly and made us breakfast the first morning, although we didn't realize it and felt bad about sleeping in. The sourdough bread and homemade jams were delicious.
When I arrived at the cabin I was surprised by the silence of the area. It felt remote and very private. In reality, although Houston doesn’t appear on some of my maps, it’s only 14 miles north of Wasilla on the Parks Highway. There is a ¾ mile gravel road that takes you to this cabin on a lake.
The cabin is simple, but it has the basics, including a small kitchen area, hot running water and electricity.
Julia and Art greeted us and directed us to a raspberry bush which made a great addition to our dinner. They also shared with us a bottle of homemade wine. We also enjoyed a canoe trip on the lake which was a nice ending to our day.
It’s a pleasant, albeit, dusty place to stay.
My son and I really enjoyed our stay with Julia, her husband and dog family. They were very kind, helpful and made us feel at home. The cabin was very nice and we enjoyed our canoeing in the lake.
Julia was so amazing and accommodating to our needs and schedule! We had a nice fire ready to start when we arrived and even made us a delicious breakfast including her many homemade jams in the morning! What a great stop on our honeymoon!!
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Julia, Art, their three dogs, and three cats. The cabin served as a great home base as we explored Talkeetna, Wasilla, and Palmer. The country setting was peaceful and comfortable.
It was our first place in Alaska and it was wonderful, an small house with a very comfy bed. The owner (Julia) was very nice and helpful. We could take a canoa over the lake. Totally recommended.
Julia was a wonderful host and the rustic cabin was perfect for our stopover on the way from Anchorage to Fairbanks.
Julia and Art were so wonderful to meet. Very nice, genuine, caring people. We were glad to have met them and hope to make it up to Alaska some day to stay in their cabin. They left us with some great local jam too, delicious!
It was a pleasure to have Julia in our house. Shame that we could not meet. The place was left perfectly in order, and I would certainly recommend her.
I've loved very much to have Julia as my guest: she's been so nice and precise and quiet!! And, at the end of her stay, it seemed nobody had used the apartment!! She left everything in perfect standing and I absolutely recommend her as a guest. I'd like to have her again here!!
