Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My wife and I are originally from Guatemala, and have lived in Anchorage, Alaska since 1988. We moved our family to Alaska because we were impressed by it's natural beauty and grandeur of this state. The lake lodge was built in the 1980's for a project that was never finished. We bought the unfinished lodge in 2004, and over the last 12 years we have been remodeling and enjoying its tranquility ever since. This beautiful lake house is now available for any special guest who wishes to enjoy the wonderful summers and winters that Alaska has to offer. We have enjoyed almost 30 years in Alaska, and hope that others will find the same pleasure in their next visit.

Why the Owner Chose Wasilla, AK, USA:
Big Lake Alaska is a popular getaway destination of the visitor to Alaska. It is surrounded by incredible views for an unforgettable summers and winters. The house is located in the North Shore of the lake, in an unusually flat area, with 360 degree views. From the house, you can see, Mount McKinley, Mount Susitna 'the Sleeping Lady', the Alaska Range, Kinik Glacier and the Chugach Mountains. The lake house is far enough from the busy city and provides great privacy with great access to many Alaskan activities.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
You can enjoy water sports in the summer, Kayaks, paddle boats and can rent any water craft equipment close by. Access to numerous fishing holes for Salmon, trout, pike, etc. You can make arrangements to be picked up by a water plane and taken to incredible fishing areas and sightseeing. Incredible sights that can be admired in the backyard. The property is only three hours from Denali National Park, 10 miles from the city of Wasilla . For shopping and dining options, Anchorage is approximately one hour away. The lake house is also one hour from Hatches Pass, home of the Independence Mine, a famous historical site, ideal for hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. Duting winter, enjoy cross country skiing, snow shooing, snowmobiling, Ice Skating, and Ice fishing in the back yard. Big Lake is the start point of the famous Iron Dog Race, and Willow, which is 10 miles north is the start point of the famous dog sled Iditarod Race. Enjoy the Northern Lights in the winter clear nights or visit Hatches Pass for a helicopter skiing or back country skiing adventure.
