Shackleford Creek Mountain House
Shackleford Creek Mountain House a unique home ready for your Alaskan adventure
The Shackleford Creek Mountain House is located approximately 102 miles or 2 hours south of Anchorage at the head waters of the Upper Kenai River. We are located on Snug Harbor Road in the shadow of Mt. Cecil Rhodes (4400 feet/1341 meters). We are surrounded by Kenai Borough and Chugach National Forest land comprising of spruce, birch, alder willow and aspen. The setting is quiet and private. There are two good size bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen sized sleigh bed with large bay windows that provide views of the surrounding mountains and woods. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed with a twin bunk bed. The loft is open with exposed wood beams and many large bay windows that provide commanding views of Mt Cecil Rhodes and surrounding woods. The feel is that of an enclosed tree house. The loft contains one queen four poster bed, two twin beds as well as a fold out double sized futon couch. The bathroom has a shower and claw-foot bathtub looking out at the surrounding forest. The kitchen is fully outfitted with pots, pans, dishes, a full sized refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, bar seating for five along with a dining table. A wood stove provides cozy heat and the outdoor 5-person hot-tub is perfect for relaxing after a hard day playing. The deck faces south, so when the sun is out the deck receives lots of sun, has a picnic table and gas grill. The separate gear shed is set up for storing your fishing gear and also has a chest freezer for storing your catch of the day. It is a special place where we join family and friends to explore the mountains, lakes, rivers and trails that are located in and around Cooper Landing. We are located a mile from the town center where multiple fish and river guides base their operations. Access to the world renown Kenai River for salmon and trout fishing is minutes away. For those seeking to hike and mountain bike the trail heads are all within minutes of the house. The communities of Seward, Kenai and Homer are an easy drive from Cooper Landing and offer a broad spectrum of activities from Glacier viewing to Whale watching to Halibut fishing and more. The design of the house is open and well suited for couples and families with kids older than 3 looking to explore the wonders of Alaska's Kenai Peninsula as well as kick back and enjoy the peace and solitude that is such a part of life here in Cooper Landing. We look forward to helping you share in the beauty of this place we call home. HOUSE RULES and GENERAL NOTES: 1.
