Atención a los huéspedes

We love people and will do our best to serve all your needs as best as possible.

He loves to share his experiences filming as a high-risk and extreme outdoor photographer. However, if you so desire, your privacy and quiet are always respected.

Otros aspectos destacables

The facility is "home-like" and your needs are met with a great deal of personal attention. If you require something extra, please ask. We will do our best to make your stay as wonderful as possible. Since we live here full time, we can refer you to areas that offer great adventures, how to go and who to see. It has 10-steps to get up to so if you are wheelchair bound or infirmed, this is not the place for you. It is rustic and "Alaskan".

Jessica, your words touched me deeply and you cannot begin to know how meaningful they are to say the least. It is people like you that make this business which at times is difficult, so pleasant and wonderful! Yes, please stop by anytime as it would be wonderful to meet up again! Maybe next time I can be allocated the time to be your personal Alaskan wilderness guide! Jim

We actually ended up staying in the lake front cabin, and not the "private lake studio". There are several different cabins. The one we stayed in was the last one in the row and had a straight view of the lake. It was a superb cabin, with a loft sleeping area. It also features many details, and high-end appliances. Jim is meticulous and clearly put in a lot of work into these cabins. Wouldn't change a thing. In fact, we would buy it if I could :) The location is also nice. It's just a short driving distance to the city and fishing areas. Overall, recommended, and will hopefully return in the future. Ido and Ana

Wonderful place! Great variety in choice of lodgings there - all charming. Jim, the owner, is very responsive to guests' needs and requests. He'll do whatever he can to make sure your stay meets or exceeds expectations. Tip for a great stay: let Jim know what kind of experience you're looking for. If you're there for quiet alone time, he'll make sure to leave you be and make sure the other guests are being quiet as well. If you like to socialize and be regaled with tales of adventures far and wide, Jim will be a gregarious host eager to trade stories. Also: this place is just outside of (URL HIDDEN) proper, which was great: you can see a moose on the road outside in the morning, and a Pacific loon on the pond; and yet you have a giant Fred Meyer a few minutes away. Can't beat that!

When describing our stay at The Retreat, thee words come to mind. Inspiring, captivating and home. First to start with the property: Beautifully maintained with a very convenient boardwalk spanning the property, it makes getting around easy and safe. The boardwalk leads down to a captivating private lake that makes you want to stand and admire the wild beauty of it. The Retreat itself is very charming with all of the small touches to make you feel like you're at home. Full kitchen with stainless steel appliances makes cooking meals a breeze- including any fish freshly caught in the area. The bedroom is plenty spacious for two and has a nice electric fireplace which helps warm the room up and create a little bit of ambience. Living room has a very comfortable couch with a flat screen and a very nicely made bunk bed. Off of the living room is a sliding door with access to your own private patio, with access to washer/dryer. The Bathroom is simply beautiful and the jacuzzi tub and shower really make the place truly spectacular. The owner, Jim, is a truly passionate man and a gracious host. From the minute we arrived at the property he made us feel we were at home and he shared some amazing stories and thoughts with us. He is a wealth of knowledge for all things Alaska and he made us feel a sense of community when we stayed in (URL HIDDEN) Looking forward to coming back and staying with Jim again. I would highly recommend staying with Jim at any of his beautiful homes, when booking with Jim you will have both a beautiful place to stay and also an inspiring host who will make sure your stay is truly excellent.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your kind words humble me immensely. As an inn keeper, we all strive to make our guests comfortable, warm, safe and happy. And when someone like yourselves writes what you just did, it all becomes so worthwhile. A sense of great satisfaction of doing what you dreamed about. I am thrilled of what you wrote, I am so touched by your generosity. Thank you. Jim

Jim is a wonderful host and knowledgable about the area. His cabins are comfortable, clean, and perfect for a getaway. Hotel not anywhere near as nice as a stay at Jim's place. The lake front cabin has a beautiful lake view and worth the extra dollars if available. We saw and heard a flock of Sandhill cranes fly over, trumpet swans in the lake early one morning, and the bonus was the morning we left( close to sunrise) a moose ran across the road in front of us about 1/4 mile from Jim's cabins. Jim will welcome you and provide solid recommendations. We saw a river full of salmon where Jim suggested we take a look. Highly recommend and would stay again.

Quaint upper cabin rental with lower private, full bath. Kitchen was well equipped for meal preparation. Laid back rental experience with all of the small details included. Jim is very accommodating, and responds quickly and thoroughly. Jim spent quality time with us, engaging in conversations about Alaska and his very unique life. We would recommend this cabin to any Alaskan traveler!
