Wasilla cabin description

Located in south central Alaska, on the shores of Cottonwood Lake in the heart of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, Alaska Loon’s Nest Cabin Rental is centrally located between Palmer and Wasilla on seven secluded acres, yet within minutes of town and attractions. We’re only 40 minutes from Anchorage and three hours from Denali National Park. Come stay in a truly Alaskan log cabin on a pristine trout-filled floatplane sized lake, surrounded by the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountain Ranges.

Sip your coffee while listening to the call of the loon echo across the pristine waters of Cottonwood Lake. Or, sit on the dock and watch the trout jump in the evening glow of a long summer night as an eagle glides directly above. Better yet, wet a line with one of our trout poles and catch a rainbow trout for dinner. Explore the lake in the paddleboat, canoe or tandem kayak (lifejackets provided). Take a swim off our dock and soak in those warm summer days on the floating dock. Roast marshmallows and share stories around the lakeside fire pit. Relax and let time stand still!

Wintertime? Wonderland time! Watch the Aurora Borealis dance across the sky, listen to the ice take on a voice of its own as it contracts and expands, ice fish, ice skate, cross country ski, or snowmobile as conditons permit. Available October to May at monthly rates (check for winter monthly rates). Ideal for professional couples, traveling itinerants, or for temporary housing during transitions during this time.

Enjoy a place where time stands still, and breathtaking beauty abounds!

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: As a sourdough (lifelong Alaskan), Ron has a deep love for Alaska and the outdoors. When not selling real estate, Ron loves fishing, hunting, spending time with his family, and sharing his tales of Alaskan adventure. A “jack-of-all-trades”, Ron built the family home and has kept the family homestead cabin in tip-top shape for over forty years. Cindy, a Minnesota transplant, traveled to Alaska almost thirty years ago for a supposed two year adventure; and, it’s been an adventure ever since! When not teaching and cheering on three children in various activities, she loves to garden, fish, ski, read, and spend time with family and friends - preferably outdoors! Our rescue black lab, young lab/retriever, and two rescue cats round out our active family. We share a deep love for this great state, and would love to help you plan your Alaskan vacation!

                      Why the Owner Chose Wasilla:
                      Alaska Loon's Nest has been our family treasure since 1962. This original homesteader’s cabin was built in the 1950’s, and has been tenderly maintained by our family for over 45 years. The cabin features richly hued knotty pine throughout, with modern upgrades, while maintaining its original Alaskan history and charm. The cabin front offers expansive views of the lake and two mountain ranges, including the Hatcher's Pass area directly across from the cabin. Two decks, one lakeside and one with a gas BBQ overlooking the perennial flower beds and garden area, add to your enjoyment of this “one-of-a-kind” Alaskan setting!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Come enjoy a one-of-a-kind Alaskan setting while being within minutes of major attractions and conveniences. You'll soon discover why Cottonwood Lake is still a 'jewel' in the chain of lakes in the area, and why Alaska Loon's Nest seems like it's nestled in a world of its own. Watch eagles fly directly overhead on their daily flight path, visiting moose and fox, waterfowl, trumpeter swans, and my favorite, the loon. Take an early morning or late evening paddle around the lake as the loons' eerie calls echo across the water, and you'll understand why time seemingly stands still at Alaska Loon's Nest! Please note that the owner's home is next to the cabin rental.
