This original homestead cabin overlooks Cornelius Lake and is along side a salmon creek (runs of reds and silver salmon are in late August and September). This cabin sports views of Pioneer Peak and the surrounding Chugach Mountains. From the front deck, Alaska's beauty is abundant. The cabin is close to highways for easy access to the large variety of activities and sights available here in the Mat-Su Valley. Yet, it is also the perfect place to relax.
As cabin guests, you are welcome to walk up the driveway to our home's lakeside lower patio
( located on a different lake), find yourself a comfortable Adirondack chair and enjoy an evening bonfire, a cozy chat, and a glass of wine. ( see new photos) OR you may want to enjoy a BBQ dinner cooked on the deck and eaten at the picnic table right outside the cabin front door. While you are relaxing you may want to watch the pair of loons and a pair of white swans enjoying their summer visit to the lake. Birds abound and fly between the two lakes, so you can watch eagles hunting and riding the air currents as you enjoy a morning cup of coffee. The cabin is also creekside and from the cabin deck you can watch rainbow trout and ducks as they travel back and forth between the two lakes.
Use this cabin as a home base. Fishing spots, hiking areas, glaciers, animal farms, bike trails, shops, spas, gyms, and historic townsites are all located here in the Mat-Su Valley.
