Why Jeff Maichel chose Houston
You can escape from the world at our Fort, but since the owners of this property are business people reliable communication being able to run a business from the property is a priority. Advanced internet has been installed and is available throughout the whole property. The property consists of 10 private acres with lots of room to relax an explore. During the Summer watch the wildlife and Salmon and during the winter many winter sports and activities are near by. The property was once home to the Big Lake Fish Hatchery with some of the history remaining. The property was designed after the owner has spent 25 years on the road at various locations around America. The design offers clean and tasteful accommodations in a classy comfort semi remote location where you can relax or work if needed.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Property is on a natural salmon bearing stream and with a private entrance to this natural compound we call "Fort Alaska". It is close to activities yet offers private 10 acres of isolated security. The property has Natural gas central heating for easy temperature control. Easy access to Big Lake but without the loudness of the lake during the Summer months. Downtown Wasilla is 25 minutes away but the Fort is remote enough to still feel like Alaska.
