Nancy Lake is a popular state recreation site -- nearby streams and lakes offer some of Alaska's finest Salmon, Trout, and Pike fishing. It is less than 15 minutes from Deshka Landing. The area includes an extensive (foot, canoe, snow machine) trail and waterway system of connected lakes and rivers. There are 100's of miles of trails, some of which connect to the International Iditarod trail (which lead to Nome on the Bering Strait.)

Nancy Lake is a large lake (five miles long), and is perfect for a full spectrum of watersports and winter sports. Hatcher Pass, also nearby, offers scenic vistas, excellent hiking and berry-picking opportunities in summer, and skiing and snowmobiling in winter.

Favorite activities as reported by previous guests:

ON THE PROPERTY -- swimming, boating, canoeing, waterskiing, hiking, fishing, sitting around the pit-fire to roast marshmallows, snow-machining, sledding, reading (great books available in our library), playing board games, cards, or the electronic game system, barbecuing delicious meals, watching movies (large selection in our video library) on the new flatscreen TV, and relaxing in comfortable chairs on the decks or dock as you enjoy the gorgeous views.

OFF THE PROPERTY (driving distance) -- fishing (world-class fishermen have been our guests!), river rafting, walking on a glacier, 4-wheeling, horse-back riding, mountain biking, visiting the musk-ox farm, dog-sled teams, goldmines, museums, Denali, Palmer, Wasilla, Hatcher's Pass, and Talkeetna.

About Theresa Wolcott

Jim and Theresa, with their three kids, have had a little dry cabin on the lake for 17 years, where they have been blessed with many wonderful memories. When the villa property became available (next lot over) they bought it, fixed it up, and have had the pleasure of making it available to vacationers from all over the world. It has been a great experience working with all the fabulous people who have come to stay on the property. They sincerely hope you enjoy the villa as much as they do!

Why Theresa Wolcott chose Alaska

A great place to relax and play! It's 'eye-candy' everywhere you look...we love Nancy Lake!

What makes this chalet unique

I love to hear the loons in the early mornings as I drink my morning coffee. I always feel a sense of peace when I'm relaxing by the lake and never get tired of the feeling of 'wilderness' all around us.

Note: We have a very cute 'dry' (no plumbing) guest cabin (queen bed) available in case a larger group of six is interested in spreading out. It is available for an additional $50 per night.

Awesome lakefront villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Jim and Theresa's cabin! They both went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, the house was graciously stocked with essentials. We had great weather for our stay so we were able to have a little bonfire every night and used the kayaks and canoe for some late night adventuring out on the lake! We would 100% recommend this place to anyone and would definitely like to return one day!

Great Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for five days at the end of May, during the time of the year where it seems to never get completely dark outside. We had great views of the lake from both the main floor and the second floor. It was awesome for watching the boats, planes, and even the next door neighbor's helicopter come and go. The house is just a quick walk down the hill to the dock and the lake. The lake is extremely peaceful and was perfect for kayaking or just sitting on the dock and having a beer. Hopefully we can make it back here again some day!

Cozy house

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time at the Nancy Lake cabin. It was the perfect getaway for us. We spent time down at the fire pit when it wasn't raining, and had enough room in the house to make dinner and visit. The property owners son was on site if we needed anything, too. I'd definitely recommend this place for families to gather.

Lovely cabin, great views!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we found the coffee pot was not working, so Theresa worked hard to make sure we had a means for coffee. She let us borrow the Keurig from the dry cabin. After that, the stay was awesome, so peaceful and serene! The view of the lake is amazing. The only strange part is falling asleep to sunlight at 10, 11 at night. Lol. All part of the Alaskan experience. We would definitely stay here again!
