We decided to try a loft cabin in Coopers Landing so that we could be centrally located in the Kenai Peninsula to use as a base to explore the area. The river front location is beautiful and generally peaceful. Some occasional noise from the highway, also large groups like to drink and revel around the campfire at night. Luckily our cabin was a fair distance from that noisy drinking group. It sounded like they were in that covered camp fire next to the main office area, but with our doors and windows shut they were not a problem.
There are several different cabin types; we stayed in the Steelhead cabin #6.
The cabin itself was fairly basic, but does the job. It was reasonably clean, and the beds were OK. We were a little concerned about musty smells after reading previous TA reviews, but happy to report that our cabin was fresh smelling and no problems at all with odors. The kitchen was equipped with cooking utensils, a propane gas stove. Full size fridge/freezer had some condiments supplied. Cupboards contained cooking oil, salt/pepper, foil, plates, bowls, silverware, pots pans. All we need is some one to catch some fish.....
Bathroom is very small, but somehow we managed. The cabin has its own large propane tank which supplies the stove and hot water. The hot water tank is fairly large so we never run out of hot water. Heating in the cabin is good. There is a small LCD TV which has a fair selection of DISH satellite channels. WiFi Internet is available in the office. My AT&T cell phone worked OK for voice and SMS TXT, but “Edge” data too slow to be useful.
We found a great place to do our laundry at Wildmans General Store across the bridge.
From our cabin we had great views of the mountains, and we had an enjoyable stay. I think it is better than a motel, you can have your own little cosy private place in the woods.
