Amazing stay at Canoe Lake Chalet
This house was perfect for our group of 7. Three adults, 2 teens, 2 kids. Everything was well stocked. The view is amazing. The lake was awesome with plenty of trout caught. Row boat, canoe, kayaks were wonderful. Kitchen has everything you need. Grilled on deck every night. Made it to Denali NP and back in one long day-worth it. Plenty of room in the house. We rode bikes that were there for us. We would love to return. Geri gave us tons of useful tips onnwhat to see and do. Wonderful rental experience—thanks Geri!
Awe, your family was so enjoyable to meet and it is a blessing that we succeeded in our efforts to give you the best vacation ever here!!
Thank you for the compliments!! We do look forward to you returning again!!
Canoe Lake Chalet
Alaska at its BEST
Beautiful home and wonderful owners!
Again, we loved our stay here and wished we had planned for a few more days to enjoy what this home has to offer. The owners are awesome and have really worked hard to make sure the home has everything visitors could need. We can't wait to come back - thank you for hosting us yet again!
Looked all over for a spot for a high school reunion retreat for up to 17 women. It's not easy to find one that will accommodate a large number at an affordable price so we were absolutely delighted with Canoe Lake Chalet. It was not only a great accommodation and affordable, it was also comfortable, super clean, spacious and had absolutely everything we needed. Geri was a wonderful hostess and made everything about our booking and our stay easy and fun. We rented the whole house and were able to spread out and make ourselves very comfortable ~ The KCHS Sisterhood of 75 thanks you for our delightful stay in your beautiful home.
Your group was so much fun!!! We do hope you come again!! So glad our chalet turned out to be a perfect place for your annual retreat!!
Perfect Alaskan getaway!
Perfect Alaskan getaway!
Our family stay could not have been better. Everything was exactly as advertised and we had the most comfortable and enjoyable stay at the chalet. Everything we could have needed was there and the place accommodated our large family wonderfully. We had so many rave reviews from our traveling family members about the chalet. A fantastic location to get together, relax, and enjoy all things Alaskan. A real sweet spot!
Geri is very user friendly, house is great!
It sure was great meeting you and fun having your group of women up for training!!
We hope you return!
I didn’t realize the lake was such a climb to the house. Some of our family weren’t able to go to the lake. House was beautiful and kitchens were fully stocked.
It was a delight to have your family stay at our chalet. We are so sorry the stair system was not adequate for some of your family. We built the stair system to be as safe and comfortable as possible with just a few steps in between landings. We do have a more relaxed path down to the lake for those who have problems with stairs. I wish we would have known that some of your group had mobility restrictions we would have let you know.. Thank you for letting us know, will be making sure our future guests know there is a stair system down to the lake front. Thank you for the nice note your group left in our guest book.

Ice fishing is great in the winter, along with ice skating and skiing on the lake. Relax around a camp fire by the lake and soak in the Alaskan wilderness serenaded by loons and varieties of lake birds. Watch our nesting eagles and hawks hunt and dive for fish. View incredible northern lights displays right out your window!
