Willow house description

An adorably cozy, beautifully appointed 3 bedroom, 1 bath single level cabin home located just north of Willow and outside of Wasilla, Alaska. Big Southwest facing windows offer an expansive view of the forest landscape. The moose wander by almost daily, and nightime viewing of the stars and aurora is not to be missed. A super comfy livingroom funiture, oversized diningroom table, and a gorgeous tongue-and-groove pine ceiling are just a few of the details that make this rustic cabin a surprisingly decadent forest retreat.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: When not enjoying our Willow cabin we can be found cruising around South East Alaska on our boat, the Myrtle-C... or working to afford our little slices of heaven. One of us works on the North Slope in the petroleum industry and one of is an IT project manager.

                      Why the Owner Chose Willow:
                      Our dream of building a little cabin in the woods came true after a searching for the perfect spot in nature to call our own. We purchased the land and started construction in 2013 and put the finishing touches on the place in early 2014. It is/was a labor of love for us and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Amazing views, cozy warm living space, a great kitchen with a fabulous gas range, full size washer and dryer, and a fire-pit just begging for stories and s'mores!
