This Kenai Riverside gem, the Bear home, offers gorgeous, upscale riverfront accommodations for your Alaska dream vacation. Nestled on the banks of the turquoise-colored Kenai River, this tranquil setting is the perfect home away from home, conveniently located in the heart of the Kenai Peninsula. From your private "basecamp," you can explore the local area by foot, raft or fishing boat - or venture on day trips to Seward and Homer before returning to your cozy home.

The main living space boasts large windows with excellent views of the property’s wooded, riverside location, along with a full kitchen set-up suitable for any home chef. Make the most of the spectacular natural setting located just outside French doors leading to the outside patio, with comfortable outdoor furniture to maximize your time in nature. Or, opt to stay cozy inside and gather around the beautiful palatial dining table which comfortably seats 8.

Private trails on the property offer excellent, casual self-guided forays.

This premium vacation home has three bedrooms with luxury linens and Sleep Number beds. Bedrooms sleep six with two additional extra-long, Patagonia-style daybeds with luxury bedding. The master bedroom suite features a king-size Sleep Number bed with comfortable reading area and en-suite master bath, with deluxe Jacuzzi tub and steam shower. This vacation home puts the Ahhhhh in Alaska!

Our Bear Chalet is one of three beautiful vacation home rentals on the banks of the Kenai River.
