Nestled amidst the serene wilderness of Alaska, just a stone’s throw away from the festivities of the Palmer Colony Christmas Event lies an idyllic escape: Alaska Backcountry Cottages. As the community comes together to celebrate the joyous holiday season, our cottages offer the perfect haven for visitors seeking comfort, tranquility, and a touch of rustic charm.

We offer two cottage styles – either one story or two. Both styles are stand-alone, full-service, cottages, with all the amenities needed to feel at home. Our smaller cottages house 4 guests with two queen size beds, and the larger cottages have 3 queen size beds with a maximum capacity of 6. If cooking is your passion, our kitchens have everything you need to prepare a feast of your own, all you need to bring is the food! If you’d rather take advantage of others doing the cooking, local restaurants are just fifteen minutes away!

But the magic doesn’t end there! Just a short drive away, immerse yourself in the cherished tradition of the Nativity Display at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 560 W Bogard Rd, right before Palmer High School.

What a great place! Everything you need and very well designed. Great amount of counter space 👌. The views out the front window and deck are fantastic. – Mike H.

Highly Recommended!

This place is wonderful! The view of the mountain range is excellent and the spot is secluded if your looking to wind down. Highly recommended if you are wanting to adventure in the Palmer-Wasilla area. The cottage was clean and the bed was comfortable. The owner left milk, a few eggs, coffee, oatmeal and snacks for us. It was a nice surprise. – Courtney D.
