Happy Hoppers, yep that's US! We LOVE people and we LOVE to travel! We have traveled to 6 out of the 7 Continents and have lots of life left! We view our guests as "Friends we haven't met yet!" Always up for a game of cards! We also understand that you are on vacation and may want a break from people, no problem, just let us know! You will love our home because of its close proximity to SO MUCH ADVENTURE!! We have a neat, clean place with a peaceful view of the mountains.
WE HAVE 3 BEDROOMS FOR RENT. Each room is a separate listing so if you need additional rooms, check out our other sites.
(Happy Hoppers GOLD ROOM and Happy Hoppers COPPER ROOM)
We also have a large Upper Room where we could set up an air mattress for 2 extra guests for a fee of $15 each.
Our 3900 sq ft, cozy home is a one hour drive from Anchorage's Ted Stevens International Airport. A great stop off point for a day or two on your way to Denali National Park. We are just 5 minutes from Wasilla city center where you will find lakes for fishing and swimming, restaurants, shopping and a movie theatre.
Общение с гостями
We are more than willing to help you with any questions you may have. As residents of Wasilla for 35 years, we love sharing our stories from being charged by a grizzly bear to birthing our 4th child at home...without assistance! There is also a large room upstairs if you prefer to hang out, read, computer work, games, tv etc. We understand that sometimes vacation is to get AWAY from people. Communication is key!
