With less than two months away from the election, certainly you’ve asked yourself (regardless of your political bent): Who is this Sarah Palin and why should she be vice president?
We here at VacationHomeRentals.com aren’t here to debate the parties’ policy stances, but Palin’s candidacy certainly shines a spotlight on her state of Alaska.
Whatever happens in November, the chamber of commerce must be tickled. The state hasn’t gotten this much play since “Northern Exposure.”
Palin was once the mayor of Wasilla, home to this Alaskan vacation cabin. The $155-a-night home looks out onto Cottonwood Creek, Hatchers Pass and all the eagles and moose that care to grace the natural surroundings with their presence.
“As I about to turn in for the night, I looked out the window and saw the Northern Lights dancing over the mountains,” said Pail Bauer, a Fairbanks, Ak., resident who stayed at the rental.
The Northern Lights, really? What an incredible opportunity, and way more exciting a story to share than saying you saw Palin’s old stomping grounds.
