Welcome to Mary's LakeHouse! We offer three (3) double-occupancy rooms (must book each room separately on airbnb). If available, we can sleep up to 6 people at our home. Enjoy and relax! Our home is clean and comfortable with a quiet setting on beautiful Island Lake in Nikiski (north of Kenai). You'll love our place because of the comfy beds, the coziness, and your own coffee corner. You may paddle boat and canoe as long as you wear one of our life jackets. Enjoy!

The house had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. And the sauna and laundry were perfect after ending a camping trip. Mary is a thoughtful and friendly host. And her breakfast is huge and delicious.

Great experience! Mary and her husband John were exceptionally welcoming to my family! Their lake house rental is in the perfect location and very homey! Mary provided breakfast when we were ready-no rush which was very beneficial for me. She was very polite and provided great conversation and hospitality ensuring we felt welcoming and comfortable. John provided fishing poles for my husband to use on the lake. Both were very attentive to our needs and were available whenever we needed. We truly enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this lake house rental to a friend or family member! Thank you for making our Alaska trip that much more memorable! -The Thibeaux's

Mary is extremely kind, helpful and generous. She drove us around to show us the local hiking trails and to orientate us. She makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable and cooks the most amazing breakfasts. Her home and garden are so beautiful and everything you could need has been thought of and is available. Mary and her home is definitely a highlight of our trip in Alaska.

This is the place to stay if you are looking for a lovely home and owners who make you feel like it's your home as well! Mary and John went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Their place is very clean, and the beds are comfortable. And on top of all that, Mary is a wonderful cook! She made delicious and healthy omelets, sweets, and there was fresh fruit and juice as well. Don't miss the opportunity to take the canoe or paddle boat out on the beautiful lake. It's particularly wonderful in the morning when the lake is like glass and the loons are floating along. My husband went fishing and caught a nice trout. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

Mary was the hostess with the mostest! Her home is just as lovely as she is. The location near the lake is quiet and secluded. The beds are super comfy with blackout curtains for those long summer nights and the den is a cozy place to relax with a cup of coffee and a few chocolates. The breakfast was superb, but the conversation was the best part. We loved exchanging travel/life stories, hearing about her exciting life in Alaska, and just getting to know her. It was like talking to an old friend you haven't seen in a long time. We were even fortunate enough to meet her husband which was an absolute pleasure as well. We definitely look forward to seeing them again and I know my dad wants to bring my mom up to Nikiski so she can enjoy Mary's Lakehouse as much as we did. Thank you Mary!! Lots of love from the lower 48!

I have lived in Nikiski, Alaska since 1990, been in Alaska since 1982. My husband John and I have raised two beautiful (inside and out!) daughters here. We LOVE it here. I love to travel and hike and spend time with family and friends.
