Look at this honey of an old log cabin in the small town of Hope, Alaska!
It’s rustic, it’s vintage Alaska, and it’s for sale!
Located in the former gold-mining town of Hope, about 90 miles south of Anchorage, this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom historic log home also includes an art studio/gallery, a woodworking shop, carport, and two additional outbuildings on .65 acres.
The town of Hope serves as a weekend retreat for folks from Anchorage so it would be neat to own this place as a gallery for tourists.
However, being Alaska, this place does not come cheap. It is currently listed for $485,900!
Still, you can’t put a price on history. The cabin dates back to 1916 – the frontier days of Alaska, but it has been meticulously maintained and updated over the years.
Check out the inside…
Is is both rustic and cozy, but also light and bright.
The kitchen is rather spacious for a small cabin, and has both an antique stove and a more modern (although not new) gas cook stove.
House Crazy Sarah is picturing an old white-bearded bachelor living here; a hermit of the Alaskan wilds.
And he has a cat for company:
The two bedrooms are on the upper floor.
Our bearded hermit seems to be an artist!
Back outside, the grounds are set up for relaxing and idling away a summer’s day.
And look at the adorable little gallery:
Inside the gallery:
Perhaps local artists have their work on consignment here.
Or maybe it is all the work of the artistic hermit?
Behind the gallery building is a workshop.
Oh mister hermit, why are you selling this heavenly place!
Apparently, it was used as a B&B in the past as well.
Look at the stunning scenery around this place:
But let us not forget the reality of where it is located… where it is winter much of the year.
Still, so charming!
