About the Property
Private Lakeside Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
In the summer there are three docks in different locations along our 1,000 feet of shoreline which gives our guests the opportunity to enjoy the sun as it moves across the sky. We have a short walking trail which winds its way through the property passing our flower and vegetable gardens ending at our gazebo.
Our cabin has two large decks which overlook the lake. Our neighbors on the lake are mainly here on the weekends so if you stay with us during the week you might have the lake mostly to yourself. We have no neighbors that are visable across the lake from the guest cabin which gives you unobstructed views of the Alaska wilderness. There is no public access to the lake so only property owners have access. The lake varies from absolute silence most of the time on week days to busy with watercraft enjoying the long Alaska days during the weekend.
Rainbow Lake Lodge is located on Rainbow Lake in the heart of the Matanuska Susitna Valley, between Anchorage and Denali National Park, bordering on the Nancy Lake Recreational Area Park in Willow, the home of the Iditarod Sled dog Race restart. There are many summer recreational options. Fishing, hiking, boating, 4 wheeling, flightseeing (Mt McKinley glacier landings), touring the historic Independence gold mine, dogsled demonstrations, sightseeing and more.
Our beautiful property offers an excellent chance to just relax and enjoy the loons calling and the occasional moose, bear, or smaller wildlife that does wander by. The area is well known for its excellent fishing with Willow Creek offering salmon, trout and grayling fishing. Guided trips can be arranged. Fly out trips for flight seeing and fishing can also be arranged.

About the owner: Steve and Sharon are long time Alaskans. We have been bringing our family and friends to the lake since 1978. We built both the vacational rental and our separate Log Cabin Lodge and spend as much time here as we can. Steve is retired from the State of Alaska, has been a pilot, registered hunting guide, enjoys fishing, snow machining, and is a veteran. Sharon operates her own business in Anchorage as a Registered Guardian.
Why the Owner Chose Willow, AK, USA:
We choose this area because it is conveniently located just an hour and half driving time from Anchorage, on a lake with a south facing view, on well maintained roads, with all the conveniences and far enough away to be on the edge of a wilderness type setting.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Quiet. Easy drive from Anchorage. Private Lake. Your own fully equipped apartment with beautiful view of the lake. Excellent stop over to or from Denali National Park. Travel advice and tips from Alaskans who have been to all the tourist points of interest and can offer some tips that will make your visit unique and enjoyable.
