If there was a sixth star these cabins would get it! Such a beautiful area and amazing accommodations! The cabin we stayed in was extremely clean and modern. There’s no where we would rather stay when visiting the Mat-su Valley. Dan and Matti are very friendly and great hosts. Thanks guys!

Our whole family stayed at the Alaska Backcountry Cottages and it is was AMAZING! The cottage was super clean and I loved how it was decorated. The kitchen had a stove and full size fridge and was equipped with pans, dishes, and utensils- everything we needed to make our own meals with the food we brought!

The best thing to happen to us...

Our original booking with another place had to cancel last minute and we ended up booking with Alaska Backcountry Cottages. I have to say that was the best thing to happen to us for our first trip to Alaska. The cottage was super cute, very clean, and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Checking in was a breeze and we appreciated the hospitality. The drive to and from was absolutely beautiful. Not too far from town if you ever needed anything. We will definitely be back again!

These cottages are incredible! I did an ATV tour to the Knik Glacier with Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours and afterwards stayed in their new cottages. The view from the porch is spectacular! Dan and Matti are awesome hosts. The booking was super easy and they were all ready when I arrived. These cottages are brand new and very clean. They even had a washer and dryer in the unit I stayed. If you're visiting Anchorage make the short drive to Palmer and stay here. Also book an adventure with Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours. The tour to the glacier is a must. Highly recommend.

What an experience we had! From the moment we checked into your ATV tour, we were made to feel welcome! In order of what we did, the cottage Pine - what a beautiful cottage; the quality of work; the beautiful view; and, all the lovely touches you did to make your guests feel special. And we really did! The ATV tour...a highlight of our Alaska vacation and we will be back!!! From seeing four moose, Dall Sheep, endless streams and beauty, Knik Glacier - incredible. Lunch was delicious! You are blessed to be in this incredible state and we are blessed you are sharing it with us. Thank you!

We want to thank you for your warm hospitality! I feel like we were friends even before we got here, and more so now! What a beautiful family you are! You should be very proud of the end result of your hard work. You can tell a lot of love went into this gorgeous cottage! All the finishes you picked are what most people would choose for their own home, not a rental cottage! The little special details did not go unnoticed! It was an absolute pleasure and delight to stay with you. I hope our paths meet again some day...

Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your gorgeous cottage with us. We are excited to get to be one of your first guests - your attention to detail and little personal touches made this a memorable stay. We were traveling down from Fairbanks for the weekend to visit the State Fair. We have spent the entire summer traveling around Alaska and exploring. We have been all the way up to Deadhorse and then all the way down to Homer. I have an affinity for tiny little, cozy Alaskan cabins and we book them often. Yours was definitely a favorite for us. Super inviting and cozy.
