Thanksgiving Delight at Alaska Backcountry Cottages

by | Nov 18, 2023

This Thanksgiving, trade the chaos for tranquility at Alaska Backcountry Cottages. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness and take the opportunity to reconnect with nature and your loved ones. Enjoy the picturesque views our cottages offer. A perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. Whether it’s a quiet evening watching for the spectacular Northern lights, “dancing of the stars”, or a day filled with outdoor activities, Snowmobiling or flying in a helicopter to the Knik Glacier, make your holiday staycation memorable at our cozy retreat.

We offer two rental cottage styles– with and without a loft. 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! 

Come experience Alaska Backcountry Cottages and all the breathtaking beauty! After a scenic 40 minute drive from Anchorage you’ll arrive at the PERFECT location and enjoy a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountains including the iconic Pioneer Peak.

Create cherished moments with your nearest and dearest, making this Thanksgiving season one to remember!

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.
