About this listing
The Denali Sunset House is a four bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home located just 7 miles south of the entrance to Denali National Park and Preserve. The house is nestled in the Alaska mountain range and provides an intimate, simple and calming retreat. A wrap around deck provides sweeping views into Denali National Park & Preserve. There are restaurants, family-friendly activities and nightlife within 10 miles.
This spacious home with stunning views out every window is an island of peace from the frenzy of activity associated with the entrance to Denali National Park & Preserve. At the same time, it is within 10 miles of restaurants, gift shops, and the entrance to Denali National Park & Preserve. There is room in the house for 10 people. There is one bedroom downstairs (with double bed) and 3 upstairs bedrooms.
Many locals in rural Alaska don't have running water, and neither did this home for several years. When a bathroom was finally added downstairs, it was an after thought to put a toilet in a large linen closet upstairs. There is a sink for the upstairs toilet just outside the closet. Please keep in mind that there is only one shower (in the downstairs bathroom), so you may need to coordinate showers. There are also showers available at the Riley Creek Campground store if you need them, located 7 miles away at the entrance to Denali National Park & Preserve.
You will have access to the entire house, except the garage. This includes upstairs and downstairs decks, the yard surrounding the house, and of course you can step into endless wilderness just by walking down our driveway. There is one small cabin on the property that is a private residence and off limits.
