Although we didn't see any wildlife, the view from the cabin was beautiful. We slept with the blinds open so we could enjoy the view. Marilyn was so nice and the outhouse is probably the nicest I've ever seen. Grateful for this cute little hidden gem.

This sweet little cabin is beautiful and the hosts were incredibly warm and friendly! The view of mountains and glaciers from the cozy bed is simply amazing and we loved all the yummy fresh baked treats left for us! Plus you're super close to hatcher pass and the reindeer farm. I can honestly say this was my favorite Airbnb stay ever!

The cabin and the hospitality of the hosts are amazing and unforgettable. We recommend this cabin without any rethinking: the panorama is unique, tranquillity and seclusion are ensured. Moreover the cabin is easly reacheble and if you need anything, Mark and Marilyn are prompt to assist (URL HIDDEN) perfect. We reccomend the kayak tour, which give you the possibility to see the landscape from another point of view. La cabina e l'ospitalità degli ospiti sono incredibili ed indimenticabili (sopratutto la vista dala cabina: una spkendida vallata con il fiume e la lingua del ghiacciaio in lontananza). Consigliamo questa cabina senza ripensamenti: il panorama è unico, la tranquillità e l'isolamento sono garantiti. Inoltre la cabina è facilmente accessibile e se avete bisogno di qualcosa, Mark e Marilyn sono nelle vicinanze per ogni evenienza... quindi, perfetto. Raccomandiamo il tour con il kayak (da loro offerto), che vi offre la possibilità di vedere il paesaggio da un altro punto di vista.

The Johnson cabin is fantastic! Mark and Marilyn were extremely kind and made sure we had everything we needed. The view from the cabin is phenomenal, you can't beat it. And the overall feel of the cabin is clean and relaxing. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Palmer area.

Mark is a lifelong Alaskan. He was born and raised in the Eagle River/Palmer area. Marilyn is a long term Alaskan and owner of the Johnson House Cabin. Mark knows the area very well and can help you tailor your vacation to account for the changing Alaskan weather by aiming you to secret spots to the North or South.
