Why stay in a hotel room when you can stay in your home away from home!!!!!!!!
If you want to stay near it all this is where you need to stay!!!!!
COME TO ALASKA AND HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE: There is so much to do and see in Alaska that you will need to allocate your time wisely to get the most out of your vacation. To help plan your daily activities you will find an Alaskan Mile Marker Book giving you easy directions and details about the many attractions and destinations Alaska has to offer. If there is anything I can do to help make your stay the best don't hesitate to ask.
GREAT FISHING IS JUST MINUTES AWAY: There are hundreds of streams, rivers and lakes located just minutes from your location. The home is equipped with fishing poles. tackle gear, and wade boots for your fishing pleasure. Please remember if you plan on fishing while in Alaska you must obtain a fishing license. You can obtain this license at various places near your stay such as: Walmart, Target. or Bait Shops. You can even obtain one via the internet prior to your departure. If your trip to Alaska is for a fishing adventure...... look no further as this is an ideal location.
NEED HELP PLANNING YOUR ALASKA VACATION...JUST ASK: I will be more than happy to give you advice on planning your Alaska dream vacation. First time visitors may find it overwhelming to get information on all that Alaska has to offer. I had my home built in Houston Alaska because of it's proximity to all the major sightseeing attractions in Alaska. People who stay in Anchorage Alaska will have to travel much longer distances to Alaska attractions than people who stay in Houston Alaska. Remember....Alaska is huge so traveling will take up quite a bit of your time and location is key to getting the most out of your Alaska vacation.

Houston Alaska is located in the Matsu Valley region of Alaska. Houston is about 48 miles north of Anchorage. From Anchorage you would get on the Glenn Highway also known as Alaska 1. Take the Glenn Highway to Parks Highway, also known as Alaska 3. Parks Highway will take you to the city of Wasilla Alaska. You will go through Wasilla to Cheri Lake Road on your right. Great location for travelers to stay who want to experience all that Alaska has to offer.
Golf: There is a golf resort about 10 miles away in Wasilla. In the summer you can play golf till your heart is content with 20 hours of daylight.
Ski: This home is centrally located near ski facilities such as Hatchers Pass, Mountain Top, and Aleyeska Resort.
My home is centrally located to all the must-do's while visiting Alaska.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Please allow me to introduce myself....My name is Dennis Gorrebeeck and I own this vacation home. My parents are from Alaska and my brother was born in Anchorage. My father was stationed in Anchorage in the early 60's with the US Air Force. My parents and brother experienced the massive earthquake in Anchorage and lost their home. Growing up my parents would always show me pictures of Alaska and how beautiful the area is. I was intrigued with Alaska and knew that someday I would experience it for myself and that time came in 2001. I quickly fell in love with Alaska and began to travel there every single year. I purchased 2 acres of land and had this log home built in 2006. This home is my dream and I know you will love it as much as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Big Lake:
I purchased in this area of Alaska because it is centrally located to the very best Alaska has to offer. Skiing, fishing, mountain climbing, snow machining, Mt. McKinley, Hatcher's Pass, glaciers, Anchorage, Wasilla, and of course the most beautiful mountains in the world. I chose this location to build my dream home because the area is so beautiful and it is the perfect location to really experience everything Alaska has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
My home is the absolute BEST and I would love to share it with you. You will not be disappointed!!!!!!!! My home offers a cozy feeling the moment you step inside. This home is decorated with the finest furnishings and linens for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. Unlike other properties where you have to pay a fortune for these amenities, my home offers all of this and more at a very reasonable rate.
