The Eagle’s Nest
About this space
Despite its central location in Eagle River, this open concept, family-friendly home feels tucked away in the trees and hosts a spectacular view, thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows. 15 minutes from Anchorage and less than a 2-hour drive from tourist-attractive cities such as Girdwood & Talkeetna, with plenty to do and see in between. Endless activities such as hiking, fishing, and sightseeing available close by to complete your dreamy Alaskan vacation!The space
The house is approximately 2,300 sq ft and has 3 private bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Nestled in a corner lot, this A-frame 2 story house sleeps 10-12 comfortably with 4 beds (one is located in a living area), two full couches, and an optional Queen sized air mattress. It includes a 3 car driveway and RV parking (summer only). There is a back deck and fenced-in backyard for privacy and safety and well as a large grassy front yard complete with fire pit to sit around and roast s’mores together. Sip your morning coffee on the covered porch and enjoy views of the surrounding forest area. 2 large TVs with “Smart” capabilities, a ping pong table, and a large collection of board games are all available for a fun night in.
Guests have full access to all appliances, including a washer/dryer as well as the propane grill on the back deck- perfect for summer barbecuing!On a bigger scale, the house is conveniently located smack dab between major tourist attractive cities such as Girdwood (home to Aleyeska, the ski capital of AK) and the historic little town of Talkeetna on the outskirts of Denali National Park, with several noteworthy spots and trails in between.
Take a 15-25 minute drive south to Anchorage where you can explore bike trails along the coast, endless restaurants and shops, and visit the local zoo and recently expanded museum.
Or, stay in town and take advantage of the beautiful surrounding area for hiking, camping, and of course, fishing! The Eagle River Nature Center is a local favorite, complete with several trails and yurt camping sites (If you decide to do this, best to book yurts in advance, especially during the summer! ernc.org)
Got kids? We gotcha covered! The house includes two portable cribs (sheets available) as well as an auto rock n play and a baby gate for the top of the stairs.
We welcome guests of all backgrounds and walks of life to enjoy our home and experience dreamy Alaska!
All spaces accessible except for the storage unit in the front yard. Please reach out if you need access to park in the garage.
Other things to note
As Alaska is wild, please be mindful of wildlife that although rarely, may wander near the property.
We have two security cameras in place-one at each entrance into the house. This is for our guests’ safety and our peace of mind. We only monitor footage if needed.
