Winter during Spring 2021 at AKBCC

by | Mar 26, 2021

March 20th was the first day of spring and Jessica & Antonella watched over a foot of snow fall during the first four days of spring here in Palmer, Alaska 2021. The blizzard they experienced truly felt like Winter during Spring!

The two of them stayed in the Forget-Me-Not Cottage, the one story on the left. 

Both of the ladies were born and raised in Florida and have enjoyed the warm, sunshine state their entire lives, and visiting Alaska was definitely on their bucket lists!

Jessica has family in Ohio so experienced the snow while visiting in the winter, Antonella on the other hand, has never even seen the snow!  This week was the perfect intro to life with snowfall!

Jessica & Antonella flew into Fairbanks and saw the amazing Northern Lights! The week they visited, Fairbanks had the Northern Lights necessities, clear, dark skies and solar activity! 

After both a helicopter flight and a snowmachine tour to Knik Glacier, they were both so enthralled by the mountains, they didn’t even seem to notice the cold!

Antonella’s eyes sparkled when she told me about their breakfast view!  I am grateful they took and shared this picture! They enjoyed, like many of our guests, having a full service kitchen at Alaska Backcountry Cottages to cook their own delicious food!

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these two energetic young adults!  I absolutely love sharing the wonders of Alaska with the world!



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.
