Alaska Cabin & Vacation Rentals
Cabin or vacation rentals are perfect for Alaska travelers looking for authentic, unique, accommodations. They offer more space and privacy, as well as a sense of place that you wouldn't experience at a larger chain hotel. They're also great if you’d like to do your own cooking; many cabins come with kitchens.
Some places are wonderfully remote and require taking a water taxi to reach. Others are right on the road system in or near towns and national parks. Whether the cabin is luxurious or more rugged, wilderness cabins offer the kind of Alaska experience that many travelers are looking for.
Some resorts offer individual cabins on the grounds. These types of cabins may not come with kitchens, but the resort will usually have a restaurant or shared kitchen. Other properties are exclusive rentals.
