Excellent home with spectacular view, wonderful central location!!!

Me and my family with a 5yr and 10yr boys had plenty of room in home. Very clean home with wonderful amenities. I really liked being on the lake. I liked being out of town and away from the traffic of vacationers, but still close enough to get to grocery store (5-7 min). There are a chain of lakes that connect to this lake which make it very nice for hiking trails. A very wonderful stay. Booking agent was very helpful and courteous.

Beautiful Home

The views are beautiful and my favorite place is the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee. I spent Christmas here and my 2 boys came up to visit and loved the sledding hill. The home is comfortable and cozy. I have greatly enjoyed my time here and love the decor'. I would definitely recommend staying here even during winter. It is a quick drive to Wasilla or Palmer and easy access to highway to head to Anchorage or the hospital.
The Northern Lights from the deck are incredible! The claw foot tub in the master bathroom is wonderful for relaxation, book reading and bubble baths.

Liked best: The location and the home was beautiful. Owners were receptive to MOST issues and very helpful.
Liked least: It was advertised with WI-FI and spent hours on the phone with technical support trying to resolve problem. Owners tried to help but took 2 months to fix the issue.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our chalet and were comfortable and cozy this winter. Nothing compares to the views of Northern Lights dancing over the mountains and lake. Relaxing on the deck is a favorite place for most of our guests , along with soaking in the tub! It is great your boys came up for Christmas break and had fun on the sledding hill.
We apologize for the temporary glitch in the WI-Fi. Now with the new high speed router, it is better than ever, and there should be no more interruptions with Wi-Fi.
Yes the close proximity to Palmer, Wasilla and Anchorage are a big plus. With the hospital just 3 miles away it is ideal accommodations for medical professionals such as yourself who come to work at the hospital.

Thank you for your compliments, and for choosing Canoe Lake Chalet for your winter stay in Alaska.

Sincerely,
Geri and Kevin McCann

Absolutely the Best!!!

We will NEVER forget our stay at Canoe on the Lake with the wonderful accommodations, incredible views, and gracious hosts!!!! Geri & Kevin gave us complete privacy, but were extremely helpful with making our week everything we hoped for with their knowledge of the area and their giving ways. Returning "home" after a day of exploring Alaska was great in saving $ with complete kitchen and extras. Provided were movies, books, tourist guides, as well as the outdoor availability of dock, canoe, paddle boat, vests, and outdoor fire pit overlooking the lake. 5 stars to the accommodations and hosts!!!! Thank you for extensive efforts for your guests!!!

I could not believe it and it was the best ever!

The Chalet was everything we had hoped for. The facility was great, beds wonderful, views out the porch, lake down the hill, and beautiful forest. It was perfect. I was able to go catch as many trout as I wanted while the wife and sister slept. Best trout action ever and even caught an arctic grayling. Wow. Went everywhere we could for 200 miles in each direction and never had a dull moment. The Chalet is located in the most central location to all of the wonders of this area.
Kevin and Geri were the best hosts anyone could ever ask for and they know so much about the area and what to do. We are recommending this place to everyone we know. This was a once in a lifetime experience for us and we are so glad we chose this place.

My family and I have just returned from staying at this wonderful location. We live on the kenai peninsula and were looking for a comfortable place to stay in the Palmer/wasilla area while attending a family wedding. This place had everything you could wish for, a beautiful view, very comfortable living space, and it was stocked with anything you might need during your stay! It felt like home immediately and when it was time to go my teenage daughter begged to stay longer. The owners were great, thanks Geri and Kevin!
