Quiet stop back off the highway about an hour from Anchorage and the perfect distance from Denali Park

In Our Neighborhood

We are in a good central location for many activities and with so much to do we thought we would help you the traveler by pointing out some of the attractions.

If you wish to go to gold mines or to even prospect for gold there are 3 that are handy. The Crow Creek Mine which is located in Girdwood, The Petersville Mine is in Petersville near Trapper Creek or Independence Mine which is up in Hatchers Pass.

While we are thinking of Hatchers Pass, besides the beautiful view (the view alone is worth the trip) there are horseback rides with Alaska Riding Adventures, a petting zoo and ATV rentals.

Or if you want to view other animals, you could go to the Reindeer Farm in Palmer, which is about 15 miles from here. While you are there you can view the reindeer from the back of a horse if you wish from Kim?s Scenic Tours, LLC and possibly see other animals such as elk, moose and deer.

While in Palmer you can also go to the Muskox Farm which gives tours and has an interpretive museum, gift shop, and picnic area. Just a couple miles away is the Wolf Farm. Palmer also has an Open Air Market every Friday May ? Aug from 11am ? 6pm located right in downtown Palmer.

For the real adventurer, there is the Alaska Toy Rentals and Outfitting! They rent all kinds of play toys for big boys and give guided tours.

For a little calmer type of activities about 10 miles away is the Happy Trails Kennels of Martin Buser (a 4 time winner of the Iditarod). They give kennel tours, demonstrate the fine art of mushing sled dogs, and you get to meet and pet the puppies!

About 7 miles from us in the other direction you will find the Iditarod Museum and Headquarters, a few miles beyond them is the Knik Museum or turn around and go into the heart of Wasilla and you have the Dorothy Page Museum. Only 1 mile from our property is the Transportation Museum which also gives rides on a miniature train on weekends throughout the summer months.

For the avid fisherman, we are 7 miles from the Little Su River where you can cast your line out and fish for Kings or Silvers depending on which variety are running at the time.
