The Octagon is a rustic three-bedroom cabin with a full bath and kitchen set just steps from a beautiful, sandy sunset beach in Port Protection, Alaska. It's perfect for a family or a large group of campers. The cabin comfortably sleeps 4, but I will accept up to 8. To get a better idea of the area, check out the NatGeo show, Port Protection!
