Property description

Ideal lakefront setting. Large shoreline lawn and dock, perfect for all to congregate for water activities - Pontoon boat for leisurely cruise around the lake, kayaks, paddle boat, canoe, paddle boards and swimming. Plenty of beach towels and lifejackets too! Other custom boating services available by reservation with owner. Large deck with gas grill, two picnic tables. The house has beautiful knotty pine interior, a large kitchen; spacious dining area and large living room, all facing the lake with lots of windows. Satellite DirecTV and cablei internet access. Lots of outdoor games: ladderball, volleyball, wiffleball, to name a few. If indoor is your style - we have a sizable movie library and many board games, card games, and a Wii. Enjoy the evenings by the bonfire or enjoy a nice hot Sauna with a dip in the water (summer) or a roll in the snow (winter :~)

Bedrooms are very comfortable - new mattresses, good pillows - always fresh clean linens. All mattresses and pillows have hypo allergenic covers. One bathroom downstairs with jetted tub and shower - one bathroom upstairs with tub and shower. The kitchen is very spacious, easy to cook in and comes well stocked with everything you need.

As for other local activities.... can't name it all here. The Matanuska Susitna valley has hiking, Iditirod Mushers Dog Kennels to visit, visting Historic Talkeetna is a must, Hatcher Pass to hike and visit Independence Mine. the list goes on and on. Visitor Center is on the way too in case you need suggestions. So much to do - anything from Glacier guided tours, Ziplining to hiking and Mt. Biking is all within your front doorstep to 30 to 45 minutes from the lakehouse. Denali is about 2 hours North of Big Lake.

For Golf enthusiasts - Settlers Bay is less than 30 minutes drive.
