  Your hosts are Ben and Casey

 Welcome to our property! Ben is a recently repurposed fire fighter and river guide. Casey works at the local hospital. While we are both transplants from the lower 48 (Ben from Grand Junction, CO and Casey from outside of Chicago), we feel privileged to call Alaska our home. We both have nomadic souls and constantly feel pulled to fully immerse ourselves in each place we visit. On just about every trip we take, we have the “could we live here?” talk, often at the local brewery. It has been hard to choose a place to settle down, but Palmer has provided the perfect ground to put down our roots. The Mat-Su Valley is a great base from which to explore the last frontier. So many activities are accessible within minutes- hiking, running, skiing, fishing, climbing rock, climbing ice, biking, kayaking, packrafting, etc. We also love to road trip with our camper. Within 5 hours we can get to Homer for halibut fishing, Kenai for fly fishing, Seward for sea kayaking, Girdwood for some resort skiing and great live music, Denali Park for our wilderness fix, Talkeetna for our favorite coffee and pastries, or Valdez to ascend some world class frozen waterfalls. And to top it all off, our local community of friends anchors us in to this abundant life we live in what is truly one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes. Ben is an avid wood worker and builds saunas and various timber frame structures in addition to running Rose Ridge, so there are always fun activities happening. Our guests are always welcome to roll up their sleeves and join in, but we understand if they would rather enjoy a warm summer day reading a book or exploring nearby Hatcher Pass. You are invited to freely roam our 10 acre property and forage for chaga and morels. Keep an eye out for our resident moose!
