Owner, Rebecca Hinsberger, with grandchild at her art show opening
Rebecca settled in Alaska in 1975 and built her own log home single handedly while living in a lean to. She later married and raised five children. Her life in Alaska reflects her love of adventure, as she has worked as a biologist, an artist, a teacher, a commercial fisher, a builder, a farmer, and a dog musher. She partnered with her husband, who ran the Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome three times, back in the early days of the race. Currently she runs the bed and breakfast, farms, teaches, and travels; sometimes returning to Paris, France where she spent a year studying art at the Louvre and a private atelier as a teenager. She loves to meet people who come to the bed and breakfast from a variety of places in the world. She also makes great rhubarb-straberry pie.
Although the property was bought in 1986, the construction of the house we have today as the Hungry Moose Bed and Breakfast was started in 1994. This unique piece of land offers privacy, space view of 17 ½ hilly acres with lawns, gardens, and a pond. It has character, fresh garden produce and a view of the Kenai Mountains. There are lots of trees on the property. There is a barbecue, tables and chairs to cook a day’s catch. There is a fish cleaning area. And to be completed by mid summer- a log gazebo with a large outdoor deck with inset campfire pit and grill- built to accommodate outdoor gatherings such as weddings, family reunions, performances… or just for you and your group to enjoy an outdoor afternoon or evening around the fire while taking in the sinking sun over the Cook Inlet and the Chigmit Mountain range.
Freedom to roam & explore the property. For direct fishing accessibility, we are in process of making a private trail to the Kasilof River. There is an outdoor deck for guests to use. Has an old time Alaska character. You feel as if you are out in the wilderness in an outdoor setting. Facebook like us! Hungry Moose Bed and Breakfast, Kasilof, AK.
