Stay in your own private log cabin with all the modern conveniences in the woods at Hatcher Pass Bed and Breakfast—it's perfect for independent travelers looking for a natural setting and Alaskan hospitality. Conveniently located just minutes away from alpine hiking trails and winter recreation, and only 20 minutes from Wasilla and 10 minutes from Palmer, nestled at the base of the Talkeetna Mountains of majestic Hatcher Pass.
Lifelong Alaskan Liz Jackson has run the B&B since buying it in 1997. An adventurous hiker and nature enthusiast, she can point you to area trails or tell you about life growing up in a fishing family. She fell into the business, as she says, since she could work from home while raising her children. And she’s a natural—she’ll stock your kitchen with any breakfast foods you request, along with her fresh-baked muffins made with rhubarb and local berries.
Choose from a single room or two-story cabins, all hand-made with local logs. They’re comfortable and clean, with quilted bedspreads and hot running water, kitchen, Wi-Fi, and TV/DVD. Sit out on your private deck and listen to migratory songbirds, or watch the long twilight of an Alaskan sunset.
Adventure is nearby, and Liz can direct you to the incredible hiking of Hatcher Pass. This area isn’t well known outside the state, but it’s a favorite of local and Anchorage folks since it’s full of trails, mining history, wildlife, and natural beauty. More travelers are discovering the area each year, but you’ll still find solitude here. And if you want to venture farther afield, Talkeetna and the Matanuska Glacier are only 1 to 1.5 hours away.
And though you’ll have your own cabin in the woods, Hatcher B&B isn’t in the middle of nowhere; there’s a store nearby, and “urban” adventures are close in Palmer and Wasilla.
