Location

Willow is the dog sledding capital of the world and we have world class sled dog farms with fabulous tours for visitors. Dream a Dream Sled Dog Farm is located in Willow. It's one of the best tours I've encountered.

Our scenery is breathtaking! Life in Alaska is like living in a National Park with all the views and wildlife that go with it.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I've been an Alaska resident since early 2004. Living there is unique because you feel like you are living in the middle of a National Park. A trip to Alaska is a life changing experience.

Why the Owner Chose Willow:
This property is in a small town that is spread over 20 miles. There's lots of privacy, but plenty of activity if one wants to join in. The area is heavily wooded, yet it still offers one of the best views of Mt McKinley (Denali) in the state.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beauty of the area is incomparable. It's like living in a spectacular National Park. The many attractions are too numerous to take in if you are only here for a week.
