Private Riverfront Cabins Where You Can View Salmon From Mid July To September

Open during the winter

Our single room private streamside cabins rest on the Southfork branch of Montana Creek. Built from spruce and birch cut and milled from our boreal forest site. In late July-Aug, salmon swim by your deck.

We are a wonderful destination for travelers looking for a wilderness Alaskan experience. Our cabins are new, clean and sports amazing views of our stream. We do not have television or hot running water and our bathroom is a cozy outhouse.

For 2017 there are three cabins on two acres of river shoreline. The cabins are separated by 100 yards of heavy vegetation. The area is extremely private.

We are Members of The Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce

A Real Wilderness Cabin Experience with Sustainable Practices

We strive to create a "Truly Alaskan" experience. Our riverfront, cabins sites are situated on carefully managed wilderness property in a virgin, boreal forest environment.

Our cabins are perfect for any travelers with a vehicle that love to fish, hike, or commune with nature. Our streamside cabins have a sixteen-foot viewing deck where you can see an array of wildlife. Seasonally, from mid-July to late August, you can often see migrating and spawning salmon right from your deck. Please note this is salmon sanctuary and fishing for salmon is prohibited. There are numerous sightings of grouse, eagles, mink, fox, ducks, dippers, martins, arctic terns, and the occasional moose or bear.

The cabin materials were cut within a half mile of the property, then milled and constructed just a few miles away. Even the tables and counters are handmade from the site. You'll be surrounded by up to 80- to 200-year-old growth birch and spruce trees towering to 100 feet.

Our sustainable solar-powered cabins visually bring the outdoors to your windows with portable structures placed on the river bank. The large picture windows that make you feel a part of the environment, guest have commented that they have seen moose and bears laying in bed. A firepit and a small bundle of firewood are always available for your use.

The cabins have a coffee maker and a gas tea kettle. Coffee and tea are supplied.

Our solar-powered cabins are "dry." We have a brand new, daily serviced private outhouse, however, we do not have pressured running hot water. The cabins include a sink area with a large decanter of potable water with fresh towels for you to wash your hands and face and brush your teeth.

Please note, that although we don't have internet wi-fi, there is local AT&T cell service that averages two to three bars.

Heavenly Respite by the Stream

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! It's so peaceful and so quiet. The salmon stream is literally less than 10' from the porch. And yes, there are salmon in the stream. The interior is WAY more comfortable than you might imagine. The out house is nice and clean and just far enough away from the cabin. Don't let the fact that this is a dry cabin (I.e. No plumbing) deter you. The location more than makes up for the minor inconvenience. Owners are fabulous and super helpful. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, if for no other reason than the SUPER comfortable elevated bed with amazing views of the stream and forest. The seclusion is really wonderful. I even had reasonable cell service for texting. The interior is appropriately sparse but nicely and very tastefully decorated. It has a rustic Pottery Barn feel. It's very clean, very comfortable, and will surpass your imagination of a "tiny cabin in the woods". It has French doors and picture windows! Great for a solo traveler, couple, or small family. Short drive to town, which is quant, with all the necessities and gift shops, as well as surprisingly great beer, burgers (including veggie), pizza, and of course fish. The owner is delightful, super knowledgeable about the area, and very helpful. I had a perfect VRBO experience. Can't wait to return!! The only thing I would have changed about my stay was I wish I could have stayed longer.

AWESOME by the river

  • 5 of 5

As billed - the salmon were in, the water put you to sleep and the area was wonderful. My husband saw a black bear his first night.

Beautiful & Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place has the most comfortable mattress ever! It's so quiet and relaxing, and we had a lovely fire in the fire pit by the river. A great get-away spot!
