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.

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.
