About the Property

1100 Sq Ft Alaska Log Home, Lake Community, 1 Loft Bedroom, Mountain Views

Welcome to the Log Cabin at the lake. Serenity and privacy is all yours. Only a 15 minute picturesque drive from beautiful Palmer located in the Matanuska Valley. This is a new and contemporary log cabin built by one of Alaska's premier log home builders that sits on it's own private 1.25 acres in a small lake community. This is not in a cramped tourist area, here you get to enjoy Alaska like an Alaskan yet you are only 1 1/4 hours from Anchorage. But don't think you're sacrificing connectivity for the rustic life, the cabin is equipped with all the modern amenities of home including high speed internet, telephone (with free nationwide calling), Sling TV on a brand new 50" 4K UHD TV with movie channels and many premium programming choices. ROKU to enjoy streaming your favorite Netflix or Hulu subscriptions. Bluetooth Speaker which works with most mobile devices, radiant in-floor heating and of course a wood stove for those cozy nights in front of the fire. Be one of the first to stay and enjoy the zen relaxation of this home. There is a loft bedroom with his and hers closets and a beautiful view, queen bed, dresser and nightstands. Downstairs in the great room, one comfy queen Futon that sleeps two and a Simmons Beautyrest foldaway bed for those extra guests. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with a large french door refrigerator, dishwasher, full size stove, built-in microwave, toaster, coffee maker. Kitchen has all utensils and cookware. The dining area is spacious and comfortable, seats 6 and affords patio door access to the large open grilling deck with chairs, small table and BBQ Grill for enjoying the Alaska outdoors. There is a full length covered porch at the front of the cabin with Adirondack chairs and table for relaxing and watching the occasional Moose. The bathroom is large and modern with full size bath and shower. The cabin also has a modern washer and dryer with laundry items supplied.

If fishing is your passion, you are only a five minute stroll to the lake. We even supply poles and tackle. There are two golf courses just 15 minutes away that are surrounded by spectacular mountain vistas. Groceries, gas, churches, restaurants and bars are also only a short ten minute drive to Palmer. Wasilla is just twenty minutes by car and has all major shopping including Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Sears, Fred Meyers, plus a host of local stores. The famous Iditarod sled dog race begins in Wasilla every year. Just outside Palmer are Musk Ox and Reindeer Farms and Tours. Hatcher Pass is also close by and affords some great skiing in winter and hiking in summer. Both Anchorage city center and the Anchorage International Airport are an easy one and a quarter hours drive away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

Why the Owner Chose Sutton-Alpine, AK, USA:
Unlike some vacation homes that are situated in primarily tourist areas, this cabin is located in a peaceful lake community inhabited by locals. You will have the unique opportunity to enjoy Alaska like an Alaskan.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There is simply nothing like a true log cabin experience. We call it the 'zen cabin' because of the calming effect you will feel as you walk through the door. Log homes are living breathing things and you truly feel at home and relaxed here. You will enjoy the best nights sleep of your life, no noise and you can literally hear a pin drop.
