QUIET TIME is between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM.

Only the number of guests who are accounted for in the reservation can stay.

When walking on trails around the property, your chances of seeing wildlife are high. It's best to see them from a distance. For your safety, please sing, talk or make some kind of frequent noise. This will alert the moose in the area of your approach. Always be alert of your surroundings. Moose, especially momma moose, are NOT docile like cattle. They can be very dangerous. More folks are killed in Alaska by moose than by bears (both very rare, and usually if they are caught by surprise and/or have babies with them). If you see a moose, stop walking. Then slowly turn and walk back from where you came. If a moose's ears are down flat against his/her head, he/she is agitated and may charge. May and June are particularly noteworthy, as this is calving season. It is a good idea to keep your cell phone with you when you are in the woods.

Please note that the fence around the vegetable garden is electric, and delivers quite a shock if touched.

We have a chocolate lab named Daphne. She is an outdoor dog, and if she sees you coming up the driveway she will greet you. No need to fear; she loves people to pieces and just wants you to throw a stick for her. She has tons of allergies, so please don't feed her. She is also not allowed in the rental space.

What a wonderful and peaceful home to stay in the middle of the wilderness. Gretchen and Al are wonderful, down to earth, helpful, and considerate hosts and their rental has a lot of bang for the buck. Lots of room to spread out and plenty of every day essentials are provided. I recommend highly and i will be back!!

Gretchen is a spectacular host and the property is outstanding. We stayed on a work trip, however felt like family and a neat friendship has begun. The flowers and garden are gorgeous and her attention to detail to the accommodations is very evident. I look forward to coming back. Thanks Gretchen and Al.

Gretchen and Al were impeccable and gracious hosts. Gretchen actively texted me back, answering all my questions. She and Al gave us so many good ideas about things to do that would work well for our family, and they even let us borrow their fishing poles for our kids to use. They made their home feel like our home. Everything was extremely clean and orderly. It feels very quiet and out of the way, but is really only a 45 minute drive to Anchorage and close to many attractions. The views from their home are truly stop-in-your-tracks stunning. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you!!

Gretchen and Al were fantastic hosts and they have a wonderful, spacious and very clean place. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is interested in staying just outside of Palmer. Our friends from Switzerland loved staying with Gretchen and Al, who helped care for them and make their trip to Alaska an excellent, memorable and very special trip. Thank you so much, Gretchen and Al!

Best stay in Alaska. Quiet but sweet, clean with a sense of belonging. The view is unbeatable. We even encountered a friendly moose wondering around the front yard. And after all, the hosts, Gretchen and Al are truly genuine people, who cherish the beauty of Alaska. Don't miss the germ of Lazy Mountain.

Användarprofil för Gretchen

Gretchen and Al are longtime Palmer residents. They moved to Lazy Mountain in 2012, and love hosting in their home. Gretchen is retired, and volunteers for several organizations in the Palmer area. Al manages Matanuska Valley Federal Credit Union, based in Palmer. They enjoy cross country skiing, sledding, riding snowmachines and watching the Northern Lights in winter. In summer and fall they garden, hike, pick raspberries and blueberries, preserve produce, go fishing and dipnetting, and smoke salmon. One favorite pastime is sitting around their firepit in summer, or during a fun sledding party. Gretchen also loves going to the Alaska State Fair in Palmer each August!
