Property description

The cottage is tastefully appointed and has a full kitchen, wood and slate floors, in-floor heating, gas fireplace, jetted tub, washer and dryer, cable TV and a screened porch. There are many lakes in the area, rivers for fishing, rafting and kayaking, and the Talkeetna Mountains with a restored gold mine at Independence Mine and trails for day hikes offering fresh air and fantastic views. Matanuska Glacier is also worth a day trip for a hike on the glacier.

Wasilla is the home of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race Headquarters/Museum, and dog farms are open for tours in the Big Lake and Willow areas. Close to Palmer are the Musk Ox and Reindeer Farms. Talkeetna is a good hour's drive to the north. This small community comes alive in April-June with mountaineers from all over the world arriving to attempt to conquer Denali, the local name for Mount McKinley, North America's highest peak.

Consider Alaska Birch Cottages your home away from home, or as base camp for your Alaskan adventure. Two-night minimum stay requirement
