We provide a safe and exceptional experience for our guests to explore the Mat-Su Valley and immerse themselves in the local culture.


THE chalet

The Chalet sits on a South facing ridge. The full wall of windows allows a panoramic view of several mountains including Lazy Mountain, Pioneer Peak and most of the Chugach range. Knik Glacier is nestled at the end of the valley.

Chalet & Cottage




Welcome to our property! While we are both transplants from the lower 48 (Ben from Grand Junction, CO and Casey from outside of Chicago), we feel privileged to call Alaska our home.


We both have nomadic souls and constantly feel pulled to fully immerse ourselves in each place we visit. The Mat-Su Valley is a great base from which to explore the last frontier. So many activities are accessible within minutes- hiking, running, skiing, fishing, climbing rock, climbing ice, biking, kayaking, packrafting, etc. We also love to road trip with our camper.


You are invited to freely roam our 10 acre property and forage for chaga and morels. Keep an eye out for our resident moose!



  • About The Space
    The Cottage can sleep up to 4 guests in 2 bedrooms one with a king size bed and the other with a queen size bed. (Comfortable inflatable bed available upon request). The Cottage comes equipped with a modern kitchen with stainless kitchen appliances, a full sized bathroom, washer and dryer, and a jaw dropping view of the Chugach and Talkeetna mountain ranges. If you need to stay connected for business, or want to show your family how awesome a time you are having we also provide high speed internet. There is a furnished outdoor patio, gas barbecue, and central fire pit located outside where you can enjoy Alaska's uncommonly long summer sunsets. Or if you visit in the winter and bring warm clothes you may be treated to a Northern Lights display.
  • Summer Stays
    When you visit in the Summer, local activities abound. There are many ecotourism type establishments, fishing charters (Salmon, Halibut, World Class Steelhead), mountain bike/ski trailed, and nearby hiking in Hatcher Pass which offers some of the easiest access to rugged mountains you will find. There are also various animal observation tours and farms where you may see whales, bears, sea lions, otters, migratory birds on their trip north, musk oxen, Caribou, mountain and dall sheep to name a few of the possibilities. Or, if you are tired from doing all that, you can relax on the patio and rest while you grill your favorite dinner and enjoy a sunset that turns into dawn while alpenglow shines on the Chugach range.
  • Winter Stays
    In Winter there are nordic ski trails at the Government Peak Recreation and Hatchers Pass less than 10 minutes away. Additionally, there are unlimited backcountry skiing opportunities in Hatcher pass and a hopefully soon-to-be community ski lift. Ice climbing opportunities abound in the local area as well. Some are roadside, and the others require hike/ski in access. If the views from the patio aren’t grand enough, there are several nearby trailheads providing a range of mild to strenuous routes to the tops of our surrounding mountains for even more incredible views of the Mat-Su Valley. Winter adds an austere beauty that will certainly capture your attention and imagination.

  • Where You'll Be
    Palmer, Alaska The Fishhook Neighborhood stretches from trunk road all the way up to Hatcher Pass. It is close to Palmer and Wasilla but due to lack of development far away. We have wild life wander through the property on a regular basis. They seem to like using the driveway to get up on the the hill sides from the lower elevations. This natural setting in a convenient location makes for an ideal vacation location. You can stay anywhere in the valley or Anchorage and stay in a place that is very similar to where you live at home. At Rose ridge you are close to amenities but still on vacation.
  • Hosts
