Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I are originally from Guatemala, and have lived in Anchorage, Alaska since 1988. We moved our family to Alaska because we were impressed by it's natural beauty and grandeur of this state. The lake house was built in the 1980's for a project that was never finished. We bought the unfinished house in 2004, and over the last 6 years we have been remodeling and enjoying the tranquil home ever since. This beautiful lake house is now available for any guest who wishes to enjoy the wonderful summers and winters that Alaska has to offer. We have enjoyed our last 20 years in Alaska, and hope that others will find the same pleasure in their next visit.

Why the Owner Chose Big Lake:
Big Lake Alaska is a popular getaway destination of the residents in Alaska. It is surrounded by incredible views for an unforgettable summer or winter. The house is located in the North Shore of the lake, in an unusually flat area, with 360 degree views. From the lake house, you can see, Mount McKinley, Mount Susitna 'the Sleeping Lady', the Alaska Range, Kinik Glacier and the Chugach Mountains. The lake house is far enough from the city for great privacy and is close to many Alaskan activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can enjoy water sports in the summer, rentals of any motorized equipment is available close by. Access to numerous fishing holes for Salmon, trout, pike, etc. You can make arrangements to be picked up by water plane and taken to incredible fishing areas and sightseeing. Incredible sights that can be admired in the backyard. The property is only three hours from Denali National Park, 10 miles from Wasilla (Sara Palin’s home town). For more shopping and dining options, Anchorage is approximately one hour away. The lake house is also one hour from Hatches Pass, home of the Independence Mine, and a historical site. In winter, enjoy cross country skiing, snow shooing, snowmobiling, Ice Skating, and Ice fishing in the back yard. Big Lake is the start point of the famous Iron Dog Race, and Willow, which is 10 miles north is the start point of the famous dog sled Iditarod Race. Enjoy the Northern Lights in the winter clear nights or visit Hatches Pass for a heli skiing or down hill skiing adventure.
