About this apartment

Bella Vista means "beautiful view" and that is exactly what our newly remodeled farm-style studio apartment delivers. Set on 5 private acres, this 600 square foot studio apartment is nestled on Lazy Mountain just minutes outside of the quaint, historic town of Palmer. The spacious floor plan has plenty of space to relax in after a full day of Alaskan adventures, with a comfortable queen memory foam bed, and a Euro-lounger that can accommodate 1 adult or 2 children comfortably. A playpen is available upon request. The full kitchen is great for cooking meals, or stop in to one of several fantastic restaurants or seasonal food trucks in downtown Palmer. Large picture windows will have you mesmerized by the stunning views of Hatcher Pass, Pioneer Peak, local wildlife that frequent the pond and yard, and of course the breathtaking sunsets and sky-scapes. With an expansive yard, the hosts of this property are happy to share the grounds with you which include a pond, soccer net, sand box, and basketball standard with plenty of room to play in the Summer/Fall months. The winter months at Bella Vista are not to be outdone by summer. During the winter you can enjoy the charm of our lighted sledding hill, snowshoeing, and ice skating on the pond if you bring your own gear and make prior arrangements with the host. Bella Vista Studio is conveniently located mere minutes drive from the popular Lazy Mountain Trailhead, Matanuska Peak Trailhead, the Butte Trailhead and many other amazing hikes that boast sweeping views of the whole Matanuska Valley. From Bella Vista, you can be skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, snow machining, hiking or exploring the ruins of the mining culture left behind at Hatcher Pass in approximately 25 minutes. Also just minutes away are popular tourist attractions such as the Palmer Visitor Center, Reindeer Farm, Musk Ox Farm and Pioneer Peak U-Pick Vegetable Farm, the Brewery and Kombuchary, Jim Creek, Knik Glacier viewing area, downtown shops featuring local Alaskan artisans, fishing holes, and many other excellent hot spots to visit. Whether you are enjoying our seemingly endless, lush, green summer days or the exquisite Northern Lights in winter, this studio is sure to feel like a home away from home.
**Please be advised this studio is on the second level and contains a staircase that is not accessible to wheelchairs and may be difficult for young children or those with physical challenges to access.

    Favorite stop of our Alaska trip.

    My wife and I spent 2 weeks between Seward, Anchorage and Palmer and by far enjoyed our stay here the most. The property is as described, which is to say beautiful and the loft is so clean and comfortable. The hosts were attentive and provided everything we needed. Needless to say we are looking forward to coming back.
