Plan a Perfectly Tranquil Getaway in South Central Alaska
For a relaxing vacation, consider lodging accommodations at a bed and breakfast in Chugiak near Peters Creek. With views of the Chugach mountain range, this small, quiet community features beautiful rushing rivers emptying snow melt from the mountains to the Gulf of Alaska's Knik Arm.
Wildlife abounds here, from bald eagles to bears to moose. Nearby sights include Thunderbird Falls, the native Athabaskan community of Eklutna (its Russian Orthodox/native log church has been in continuous existence for more than 300 years), and Eklutna Lake: a large mountain cirque (the lake's elevation is around 600 feet) hemmed by soaring white-capped mountains.
Serenity certainly does not mean boredom in this town, as Chugiak is the ending point of the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Sled Dog race, before officially starting the following day from their headquarters in Wasilla. Visitors can also rent bikes and kayaks there or walk the gravel path around the lake. Our local BBAA innkeepers invite you to experience the natural beauty of south central Alaska.
