Views

Each chalet has great views! (seriously, it doesn’t make a difference which chalet you’re in) There are mountains all around, and lake views! As Grandma Steele says: “Every window is a picture!”

Wildlife

  • Bears! They wander through once or twice a summer.
  • Moose! Same as bears.

Privacy

Each chalet is private and secluded, with it’s own hot tub.

  • The chalets share five acres and are within walking distance of each other- so you can rent more than one!

Check In/Out

CHECK-IN TIME IS AFTER 4 P.M. AST AND CHECK OUT
IS 12 Noon AST.

Early check-ins and late check outs by prior arrangement only.  Please do NOT arrive early without prior approval! Additional fees may apply.

Food

Stock-up on food in Anchorage or Seward. Estes Bros grocery in Moose Pass is open 9-7 (summer) seven days a week, but has limited inventory and only accepts cash.  There is a ATM near the store. Nearby Trail Lake Lodge has a restaurant and bar with satellite TV.

Fishing Information

Lake access is easy walking distance down the hill.  Canoes and kayaks are available for use.

You can fish in the lake, but better fishing is nearby. Please check out the regulations before you come:

  • We do not stock fishing gear at the chalets. Sometimes fishing gear is left by other guests.
  • Guides
    will have all the gear you will need and can take you to where the fish
    are.  Guides will also show you what tackle to use, and how to catch the fish. They
    also will clean the fish for you and help you ship it (fish cleaning is not permitted at the chalets as you do not want to attract bears).
  • Unless you are an experienced Alaskan fisherperson, a guide is suggested.
  • There is a separate freezer at the chalets for fish storage.  Please see the hosts.

We do not recommend particular guides. Please look at our Trip Planning guide for more information.

Amenities

Chalets have Satellite TV/DVD, Cell and WI-FI Internet service.
The chalets all are the same quality and each contain the following amenities:

    maker, mixer, blender, stock pot, baking pans, waffle iron, colander,
    rice cooker, crock-pot, etc.

  • All linens, towels and paper products are provided.
  • Septic safe soaps, dish and laundry detergents are supplied. ONLY USE THOSE PROVIDED.
    • Septic system means don’t flush anything but toilet paper and waste down the toilets. You’ll regret it.

Mosquitoes

Yes! There are mosquitoes and flies in Alaska. Good news is our mosquitoes don’t carry diseases. How many you’ll encounter depends on many variables. You’ll probably want bug repellent at some time during your trip.
