This is a guided remote Alaska wilderness experience in wilds of Alaska. This requires a five mile hike through the Alaska wilderness. Only for the physically fit and those that want a real Alaska experience. It is fully guided trip but guests have a private cabin. A lake offers fishing.
This is the real wilderness Alaska experience and only those that don't mind this type of experience should attempt it. No running water or electricity. A wood stove provides the heat. Here is a review from a person- “Here's what going to happen: you're going to hike five miles into the middle of nowhere. It will be a challenging hike -- about 2.5 or 3 hours of trudging through bushes and marshes and climbing up hills. The cabin itself sits atop a river/pond with an adorable pair of beaver neighbors. It has everything you need, including coffee and snacks and sleeping bags. On the second day, you'll do more hiking/exploring. The views will take your breath away. And you'll want to stay forever. Everything about this place is amazing. Mike (and his dog Asher) are wonderful hosts/guides. The views are unbeatable. I spent 10 days in Alaska and this was the highlight of my trip. I would recommend to anyone visiting Anchorage, Denali, or Fairbanks. My only regret was going to Denali after the cabin instead of the reverse, because I ended up being very disappointed by the views in the park. ”
The place is wild as it gets so be ready to see animals and still have the protection of a cabin. The cabin sits next to Denali National Park and is for those wanting extreme Alaska adventure. Not for those that want the five star hotel experience. You can see Alaska by looking out a window of a car, bus, train or plane or you can walk through it and experience it.
  • My husband and I had a great time out in the wilderness with Mike. Wished we could have stayed longer. It was an invigorating and humbling experience -- we couldn't have been farther from Chicago both mentally and physically-- that only deepened my already intense respect for the land and for animals but additionally, for the people who live and make Alaska their home. The ability to unplug and just sit and absorb the beauty and quiet at the cabin was balanced with Mike's passion to hike and show us the vastness and more beauty that surrounds his little corner of the world. Weather conditions limited our activity a little but we can't miss what we couldn't see and everything we did see was spectacular, including the moose and the industrious beaver. Mike is an exceptional guide (with an emphasis on safety), good cook, and all-around interesting and positive man who likes to share his ideas but never gets preachy. But listen to him when he says to bring rubber boots! In the days following the trip, I kept finding myself thinking, "I should have asked Mike about [fill in the blank]." As for logistics, the cabin has everything you need and more: Warm sleeping bags, comfy pillows, snacks, fresh/delicious/cold spring water (boy, was I glad not to have to pump/filter or use purification tablets), and good coffee! Definitely recommend it to anyone who is in decent physical shape and wants to get off the beaten path and have a unique Alaska experience.

  • First, understand this is far beyond "a place to stay". This is the most awesome, realest Alaskan experience you'll find. It will require you are more or less in shape, and have a sound mind, but the reward is beyond measure. In other words, I absolutely loved the experience. I'd recommend messaging Mike before to discuss logistics. Plan to block at least a couple of days if you can. I won't ruin the surprise, but the sights are breathtaking, and the wildlife is fantastic!

  • This was the absolute highlight of our trip. The 5 mile hike to the cabin was not easy but the beautiful scenery you witness all the way there will make you forget that you're tired (if you are). DO NOT SHOW UP WITH OUT BOOTS or you will not have a great time sloshing through wilderness with wet feet. The hike into the high country was breath taking. We saw caribou, beavers, lots of birds and one black bear. The cabin is cozy, comfortable and warm. Mike will make sure you're well fed! This experience is not for the out of shape, the trails are not easy and you will be going through dense brush and sloshy bogs. However if you love the wild, this trip is worth it 10 fold and you will not regret it. Mike is a very interesting man with a lot of wilderness and climbing experience, ask him about his climbs!!!! Highly recommend this experience, it will be one you will remember for years to come! Also....don't forget the boots, bring everything Mike says to bring.

  • The Bush cabins are an absolutely amazing experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a challenge. Mike is an amazing host/guide. He will push you and challenge you, but he knows the land out there inside and out and if you accept the challenge you will see some of the most beautiful scenery you have ever experienced. We spent 4 nights out there and enjoyed every minute of it. It did not take us long to realize that Jesus wants us to be happy, and so does Mike (you are sure to hear this line multiple times if you spend time with Mike). If you are planning on taking a trip to the Bush cabins, be sure to listen to all of Mike's directives before coming up. Rubber muck boots are absolutely necessary, and, as Mike will say, rain gear is survival gear, so do not skimp on this either. Again, this is the experience of a lifetime, you will not find a more true Alaska experience.

  • Staying at Mike's cabin has been a highlight of our Alskan trip. The cabin is remote and the descriptions are very accurate. Although the cabin was nicer than we wouod have anticipated being so remote, very comfortable! We went in late July / early August and rain gear was a must. It is important to take Mike's recommendations for gear as it could definitely make or break your trip. The weather was rainy and a bit overcast but was great for hiking, enjoying the cabin, each others company, and exploring. Mike is a great guide and knows the country very well! We felt comfortable and safe the entire time while we explored the true Alaskan bush. Highly recommend!!!

  • An authentic Alaskan wilderness experience. Thanks so much to our host Stephen who shared his significant passion for and deep knowledge of the area with us. We were looked after from the moment we first meet until we were dropped back in Talkeetna. The walk and environment is physically demanding and not for the faint hearted. Our deepest thanks to Mike and Stephen for sharing your slice of Alaskan paradise with us!

  • It is difficult to judge which was more spectacular: the hike to / from the cabin, the view from the cabin or the great pancakes with freshly picked blueberry's Mike made us in the morning. Mike is a great host who will guide you through the wilderness. Note that the hike is a bit more strenuous than an ordinary hike as you need to walk on rubber boots (rather than regular hiking shoes) as you will be passing some meadows/swamps with ankle deep water. You will also need to cross a river on a suspension bridge, so you need to be a bit adventurous. Once you get to the cabin, you will be right in front of a small lake with beavers coming out during the evening. The cabin is really basic with a couple of bunk beds and no running water. However, the scenery is so beautifull that you don't want to spend time inside, but stay out on the deck. Mike cooked us a simple dinner in the evening and delicious pancakes in the morning. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone and if you have the time, try to stay an extra night which would allow for a nice hike in the area.

  • The wilderness cabin was truly a wilderness cabin - a 5 mile hike out including crossing glacial river on a makeshift bridge, a midnight hike through the swamps and finally a magnificent view of the cabin. Mike was an excellent guide, getting us to a private location on trails he himself blazed. The cabin itself was well built and warm, with excellent views.

    Reviews from guests who stayed in Denali National Park and Preserve

    Wonderfully secluded. Fun times. Kayaking in the lake. Quality hiking. Wood burning stove and rain on the roof made for my deepest sleep in months.
    We enjoyed our short stay at this rustic log cabin. Very charming and it was well equipped. The hot tub was a nice surprise. Would definitely rent again.
