The chocolate chip cookies were a sweet way to arrive and set the tone for our whole stay. Alaska is a beautiful state and we have enjoyed seeing much of it. When we make our way back, we will look forward to coming back here for a little slice of heaven! Blessings to you!

 07/28/2012

After looking up many places around Glennallen, I am so glad we found this place! My husband and I agreed that we wish we’d checked out this part of Alaska, including this cabin, four years ago when we were first stationed at Elmendorf AFB. After a long day of fishing & exploring this was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the lake, the paddle boat, and the cabin. You’ve thought of everything! Thank you for making the futon bed for my 3 yr. old. The bear and moose stuffed animals were his best friends for the night. The variety of breakfast food was very nice and we will enjoy the jam when we get back to base. We will definitely be recommending Pippin Lake B&B to anyone travelling this way. I hope we can stay here again on our drive back to the lower 48 where we will be stationed soon. You’re the best!

 ~Andrew, Diedre, Thomas & Claire

! ~Kipp & Ann, Valdez, AK

 

 06/07/2012

If I could put this dear, wee cabin (and the lake) in my suitcase to take home –I would. We loved staying here. All the lovely touches, patchwork quilts, home baking, and so clean and comfortable. We had a great drive to Valdez looking at glaciers and waterfalls on the way. Got back to go on the lake in the paddle boat and kayak. Went both nights to Tonsina River Lodge (3 miles) for Russian dinner. AM good, too. Thanks so much for our two nights

. ~ Diane & John, New Zealand

 

 06/05/2012

The cabin and location are fantastic! It was a wonderful surprise when we arrived to find a single cabin with access to the lake. The DVD on the history of Kennicott was very informative and an excellent prelude to our visit to Kennicott. Canoeing the lake at midnight with view of the Wrangell Mountains was awesome. We very much enjoyed our stay here. Thanks Gail and your daughter for a wonderful experience.

~Gregory & Gabrielle, Zurich, Switzerland

 

08/30/2011

We arrived after the long, bumpy and gorgeous drive from McCarthy just in time to take a quick paddle boat ride at sunset.  This cabin is the nicest B&B we have stayed in on our 30th Anniversary celebration trip from Oklahoma!  Thanks for your hospitality and for the jelly, which will be shared with other at home.  We will recommend Pippin Lake B&B to others we know coming to Alaska.  God Bless you!

Gail & Scott, Thank you for a wonderful stay!  We appreciated your cabin very much.  We had a wonderful evening canoeing, seeing muskrats, making a campfire, eating these great chocolate cookies and the delicious cake, having great views on the mountains…

On our way from Anchorage via Homer, Seward, Whittier and Valdez to Pippin Lake we stayed in hotels, motels and a lodge.  It has been fine.  But here…! Here we found a place to be “at home”, a place to be a family. Thank you for your hospitality and this great setting.  Wish we could have stayed longer.

~ from Germany

 

08/21/2011

Gail, this cabin is awesome.  Had we known it was this nice, we could’ve booked a longer stay. Anyway, it was perfect. The kids love it very much – the view, the lake, the breakfast, the rain.  It was all perfect and picture perfect. P.S. Coffee cake & cookies were awesome. P.P.S. I have never stayed in a cabin as awesome as this, it is definitely something most of all, to remember!  P.P.P.S. Thank you so much, this place was beautiful in every way

If hotel stars went to 10 this would be an 11! ~ Amber

My favorite part about Pippin Lake B&B was the quicksand-like bed. My favorite and most comfortable bed in the whole wide world! ~ Jared

 

07/17/2011

Thank you, Gail & Scott.  We intended on going on a hike, but the cabin was so cozy, well stocked with goodies, and the lake beckoned us to canoe & paddle the day away instead.

 ~ from Germany

 

06/10/2011

This is the most amazing little cabin in the most amazing location you can possibly imagine.
Located on the stunningly beautiful Richardson Highway, we were amazed by what we found. We did not expect this...
The cabin is so charming, so well appointed, so cozy, it's hard to believe it was a cabin in the middle of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, in the middle of absolutely nowhere!!A beautiful kitchen, sitting room and lovely comfy bed with a marvelous quit. The kitchen was stocked with food, so really we needed to go nowhere.
As you stroll out the back, you encounter what appears to be your own private lake.. Pippin Lake. A paddleboat, and a kayak is yours for your enjoyment at the end of your own private small dock. You have your own barbecue, your own lovely little wooden swing with a fire pit in front of it. It was like a childhood dream come true. It is so private, so secluded, so serene and peaceful, it literally brought tears to my wife's eyes. So quiet and tranquil. We never saw any life at all on the lake. It is as though you have the entire lake to yourself, and that it is all yours. Come for a day, a week or more. You will be so pleased. This place is like a little heaven on earth!

 

06/ 4th- 5th/ 2011

What a sweet, sweet space – very welcoming, restful, homey and clean. Your lake is soothing and delightful after a busy day in Wrangell St. Elias…loved watching the little water birds and muskrat in the evening light. Dad has felt so at ease with the kitchen, the separate sleeping space---so very charming.  Blessings on all who enter this restful home-away-from-home.  Thank you

. ~ Shawn & Harold, Boceman, MT

We will be telling everyone about it!

 

06/06/2010

Gail,

My husband and I stayed w/you on June 6th and I just wanted to say thank you for a lovely stay. Our cabin was spotless, toasty warm and just perfect in every way. Thank you for the special treats you left and the lovely note. We took the paddle boat around the lake twice and enjoyed the beautiful dock. We have some great pictures and will cherish the fun memories we shared at your place. I hope you enjoyed your Anniversary getaway too!

We will book again next time we are in Alaska and I will recommend you to all of my clients.

We hope to make it back to Alaska some day.

Thank you so much for such a great place to stay in our travels. The cabin was just wonderful, the view outstanding and the cookies and muffins were excellent. We really enjoyed “our” little cabin in the woods. We look forward to staying with you again on our next trip to Alaska. P.S. The fireweed jelly was great, also. Chris & Sue Anderson,

Gail, Thanks so much for your warm welcome. Things just go so much easier when we are around Christian friends. So glad we picked your B&B out of the Milepost to stay in. God’s presence is in this cabin. Thank you for the cookies & jam. When my husband saw them he said, “And she doesn’t even know us.” God bless you and your family.

Dear Gail,

Thanks so much for a comfortable stay - all we needed and more. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting and swinging out by the lake in the sunshine this morning. You are a great hostess.

-Tracy & Tom Broadwell, Dayton, OH

Gail, what a precious time we have experienced at your cabin. The delicious jelly, homemade cookies and apple bread, helping us have a wonderful fire and answering our questions were so appreciated. We really enjoyed taking the paddle boat around the lake, sitting on the dock, enjoying the mountain views, roasting marshmallows by the fire and cooking in the cabin. Thank you for making this all possible. The presence of the Lord is in this place.

-Don & Terri, The Russels from Nashville, TN

Gail, You have been the most accommodating host we could have ever hoped for. I wish we could stay longer here on Pippin Lake but we must press on in the spirit of adventure. Thank you for everything.

 - Dain & Paige Caraway, Greenville, SC

 

08/25/2008

Gail, After some disappointing accommodations, it was like a friend putting it’s arms around us and welcoming us when we walked through the door. So cozy and inviting. My husband’s first word was “cookies” - thanks for the recipe. If we had known how your cabin was set up we would have booked more than one night. Thanks for a great place to regroup before our next stop. God is so good.

- Ken, Karen & Katie Lisbon, Maine

Your B&B is so welcoming, cozy and thoughtfully decorated, furnished with Alaskan artifacts, art, and crafts. To paddle your canoe on a lake with majestic mountain scenery was so refreshing. We are truly blessed to be your guests and sample not only your hospitality, but also your delicious cookies. Thank you! Definitely a day of “R&R” midway during our Alaskan visit of discovery and majestic beauty. How great is our God’s creation! 

- John & Mary Ahnasi, Waukesha, WI

 

08/16/2008

Thank you so much for what has been one of our best stops along our Alaskan adventure!

This will be a fond memory when looking back on our vacation and we wish you the best. Thanks again. God Bless.

Gail,

Thank you so much for your hospitality - what a relief to arrive at 2am and see the beds for the kiddos all ready! The girls had several paddle boat adventures during the day and Adam caught his 30 Copper River Reds-woohoo! The cabin was the perfect home away from home. Delicious cookies and muffins and tea, very clean & comfy! Thanks again & enjoy the rest of the summer. P.S. Great cookbook-can’t wait to try the salmon brine!

-Julie, Adam, Ainsley, Allyson & Kendra - Fairbanks, Alaska

Thank you for giving us this opportunity to enjoy your great facility. We loved the cabin, the lake, canoe, paddle boat, sitting out on the doc…I could just go on and on. We scarfed down the cookies like hungry bears. Thank you for the jelly. You have given us some beautiful memories to treasure along with your gorgeous Alaskan landscape. We are truly blessed to have had this experience. Thanks for everything.

Gail, Thank you so very much - when I entered the cabin, “WOW” just beautiful. Thank you for the cookies and fireweed jelly. Sometimes there are no words to describe how beautiful our one night stay was - the paddle boat that my daughter and I enjoyed so very much and the beauty that surrounded us, peaceful and enjoyable.  P.S. It was a pleasure to meet you.

-  Sofia Kennedy, Arlington, Arizona 85322

 

Gail, we felt instantly at home in the cutest cabin in Alaska! Surely we’ll be back. The grill worked perfectly for our steaks and the beautiful evening made for a perfect fat-free, calorie-free dessert! We slept soundly and enjoyed the Kennicott DVD. Have a great day!

- Michelle

 

07/26- 27/2008

Thus far in our journey we have stayed in 3 cabins and yours is by far the best. It is great to find southern hospitality so far north. Thanks so much for the goodies, and the cleanliness of the cabin is especially appreciated. Hope we can see you again.

-Rick & Donna Collins Jim Davis, Richmond, KY

 

Dear Gail,

We so enjoyed our stay in your lovely cabin! The setting, décor, your hospitality-everything is wonderful! We only wish we could stay longer.

God bless you and your family-and please visit us in Fairbanks! P.S. We loved the cookies-can we have the recipe?

08/9-10/2006

We’ve spent 12 wonderful days driving through Alaska, and our journey has brought us here to Pippin Lake for 3 great nights, enjoying what you have created! Doing laundry today at the “lodge” down the hill, said they’ve heard great things about your place, and buying ice at the gift store at the top of the hill, I couldn’t stop the wonderful owner from “gushing” about the place and it’s owners! Thank you! The cookies were gone soon, the jelly goes home with us to share with Family & friends. What a beautiful sanctuary, sitting on the swing watching the ducks on the lake. Our journey takes us to one more location for 3 more days, then home. Thank you for being a part of our adventure! Your “extra touches” will continue to bring smiles to all that stay here!

-Karyn & Park Marks - Seattle, WA

 

07/13-14/2006

-Jim & Martha Berger - Alabama

 

06/17-18/2006

Thank you to you and your family for a very enjoyable stay. We truly appreciate all your thought and kindness in how you have designed a welcoming, cozy and most comfortable cabin, including the “decent” family films for our viewing. It’s very nice to meet other families with Christian morals. Thanks again for your warm hospitality you have shown to me and my Dad.

As I read thru the previous comments, they all reflect our sentiments EXACTLY! As I planned our amazing vacation to Alaska I ran across your cabin. After reserving it, I was so excited and thought to myself that it would almost be more fun to spend our 12 days in Alaska at this cabin! We’ve been to Seward, Cooper Landing, Homer, Anchorage, Denali & Fairbanks. But when we pulled in last night, my kids were ecstatic! They exclaimed that this must be heaven and why couldn’t we spend every night here! I was so happy that we were not disappointed, but went beyond our expectations! What a wonderful place you have! I will also definitely be a walking advertisement for you! How relaxing to spend the evening canoeing & paddling on your serene lake and just soaking in those beautiful mountains. Thank you! In Chirst, Dave, Melody, Kaitlynn & Kipp Miller - Alburnett, IA

God has blessed our hearts BIG time with our stay here in your cozy, adorable cabin. This darling cabin is just like I’d imagine my dream vacation home!

Thank you and God Bless!
