This log cabin in Palmer is framed in breathtaking beauty, from the majestic Pioneer and Twin Peaks in the Chugach Mountain Range to the Talkeetna Mountains in South central Alaska.
Located 42 miles northeast of Anchorage on the Glenn Highway in the Matanuska Valley, the Palmer’s unique history and heritage are unparalleled in the state.
Just outside Palmer roadside attractions include the Knik Glacier, Matanuska Peak, Pioneer Peak, Hatcher Pass and to the north the Matanuska Glacier, each of which offer several outdoor adventure opportunities.
You can trek on a glacier, go flight seeing or take an airboat ride, fish, hike, white-water raft, ride ATVs or horses, or sight-see and take pictures of some of the most accessible natural beauty in Alaska.
