Summers in Alaska

by | May 27, 2020

Spending summers in Alaska with her dad and stepmom is nothing new to Reesa.  This year, with the COvid fourteen-day quarantine, her first two weeks was a totally new experience!  Ressa’s dad lives down the street from AKBCC!

You can see by the picture of Reesa and her family skiing, that year-round backcountry experiences are nothing new to her either!

During the school year, she lives with her mom in Las Vegas, Nevada, and spends summers and other school breaks here in Alaska with her dad and stepmom. 

Reesa enjoyed the cozy Pine Cottage, a stand-alone, full-service, cottage, with all the amenities needed including WiFi to complete her school work.

Even though Reesa would have rather been with her family, she appreciated the beautiful cabin and amazing view as she rode out the two weeks of quarantine.  Now that her quarantine time is finished, on she goes to an exciting summer with her parents!

At Alaska Backcountry Cottages we are happy to have been able to provide Reese a comfortable home away from home!



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.
