Rob Cox’s Beginning with Alaska Backcountry Cottages

by | Mar 9, 2020

Rob Cox 2018

Rob Cox retired as an Alaska State Trooper May 1st 2017. During his entire 26 1/2 years, he planned to stay working, even after he retired as a trooper. Owning a hotel was always a dream of his and when he joined forces with Alaska Backcountry Adventure Tours he saw how to make that dream come true.

The perfect piece of land was found, 3901 S. Lindsey Circle with a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountains including the iconic Pioneer Peak. Rob created the cottages and also built the office for Alaska Backcountry Cottages, opening for business in August, 2019.

Alaska Backcountry Cottage’s mission is to provide a comfortable place to stay, with amazing views and many opportunities to explore Alaska. In just  a few short months, guests from all over the world have enjoyed their stay with AKBCC

Our tagline is, “You won’t want to leave!” I had to chuckle when a guest texted me, as she was booking another night’s stay, “I just don’t want to leave!”

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.
