We were looking for a centrally located cabin on the Kenai Peninsula from which we could take day trips towards either Seward or Homer as the urge struck us. This place served us perfectly for a 3-night stay.
The owners were very helpful both in making our reservation and in providing info about the region. Although we are not fisherfolks, the owners do offer professional fishing excursions and provide an indoor fish-cleaning and packing station on-site. They connected us to a local flight-seeing company for a possible grizzly-watching trip (although rainy weather prevented us from doing this).
We stayed in the Mallard's Nest cabin, a clean 1-bedroom unit with equipped kitchenette and sofabed. The only thing we found lacking: no wine glasses! The king bed was comfortable. There was internet access, cell service (via Verizon), and a flatscreen TV in the bedroom. A deck allowed us to sit outside at night, looking out over the small lake. One night as dusk fell a moose strolled along the lake shore right in front of our eyes.
There is a communal outdoor hottub, and also a washer/dryer in a separate building.
The grounds are small and shared with other guests in other cabins. There are nearby houses/lodges under construction but there was no work going on during the days we were there. There is a dock, with canoes and kayaks available. There is a communal fire ring with chairs for several guests to share the warmth.
The town of Soldotna is a very short drive, with a full range of shopping, at least 1 coffee shop, and several restaurants including a brewpub. There is a full-scale Safeway grocery store and a large outdoors store.
