Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in Wasilla

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Located in south central Alaska, on the shores of Cottonwood Lake in the heart of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, Alaska Loon’s Nest Cabin Rental is centrally located between Palmer and Wasilla on seven secluded acres, yet within minutes of town and attractions. We’re only 40 minutes from Anchorage and three hours from Denali National Park. Come stay in a truly Alaskan log cabin on a pristine trout-filled floatplane sized lake, surrounded by the Talkeetna and Chugach Mountain Ranges.

Sip your coffee while listening to the call of the loon echo across the pristine waters of Cottonwood Lake. Or, sit on the dock and watch the trout jump in the evening glow of a long summer night as an eagle glides directly above. Better yet, wet a line with one of our trout poles and catch a rainbow trout for dinner. Explore the lake in the paddleboat, canoe or tandem kayak (lifejackets provided). Take a swim off our dock and soak in those warm summer days on the floating dock. Roast marshmallows and share stories around the lakeside fire pit. Relax and let time stand still!

Wintertime? Wonderland time! Watch the Aurora Borealis dance across the sky, listen to the ice take on a voice of its own as it contracts and expands, ice fish, ice skate, cross country ski, or snowmobile as conditons permit. Available October to May at monthly rates (check for winter monthly rates). Ideal for professional couples, traveling itinerants, or for temporary housing during transitions during this time.

Enjoy a place where time stands still, and breathtaking beauty abounds!

About The Owner

As a sourdough (lifelong Alaskan), Ron has a deep love for Alaska and the outdoors. When not selling real estate, Ron loves fishing, hunting, spending time with his family, and sharing his tales of Alaskan adventure. A “jack-of-all-trades”, Ron built the family home and has kept the family homestead cabin in tip-top shape for over forty years. Cindy, a Minnesota transplant, traveled to Alaska almost thirty years ago for a supposed two year adventure; and, it’s been an adventure ever since! When not teaching and cheering on three children in various activities, she loves to garden, fish, ski, read, and spend time with family and friends - preferably outdoors! Our rescue black lab, young lab/retriever, and two rescue cats round out our active family. We share a deep love for this great state, and would love to help you plan your Alaskan vacation!

Why The Owner chose Wasilla

Alaska Loon's Nest has been our family treasure since 1962. This original homesteader’s cabin was built in the 1950’s, and has been tenderly maintained by our family for over 45 years. The cabin features richly hued knotty pine throughout, with modern upgrades, while maintaining its original Alaskan history and charm. The cabin front offers expansive views of the lake and two mountain ranges, including the Hatcher's Pass area directly across from the cabin. Two decks, one lakeside and one with a gas BBQ overlooking the perennial flower beds and garden area, add to your enjoyment of this “one-of-a-kind” Alaskan setting!

What makes this cabin unique

Come enjoy a one-of-a-kind Alaskan setting while being within minutes of major attractions and conveniences. You'll soon discover why Cottonwood Lake is still a 'jewel' in the chain of lakes in the area, and why Alaska Loon's Nest seems like it's nestled in a world of its own. Watch eagles fly directly overhead on their daily flight path, visiting moose and fox, waterfowl, trumpeter swans, and my favorite, the loon. Take an early morning or late evening paddle around the lake as the loons' eerie calls echo across the water, and you'll understand why time seemingly stands still at Alaska Loon's Nest! Please note that the owner's home is next to the cabin rental.

Perfect Alaska Family retreat!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 4 arrived to our cabin on August 6th for a seven night stay. The cabin lived up to everything that we wanted and more. Loons Nest is a perfectly maintained older Alaska lake house. The kind that you normally only find when you have someone in the family that will let you use it. We loved it from the time we drove down the lush green private drive. The main house is next door, but it feels worlds apart. The Zmuda family maintains a wonderful lawn and flower garden. The lake and dock are at the end of the yard. We have two young kids(6&8) who were thrilled with the water toys, hammock, dock, boat and trout fishing. The cabin is immaculate and has everything that you need to feel at home. The caretakers have two wonderful Labradors that we're outstanding with the kids. I felt even safer with the kids outside around the great dogs. I can't recommend this cabin enough for a great family bonding experience. The cabin is very centrally located. Easy dive from
Anchorage, to Willow, Telkeetna and up to Denali. Groceries are nearby and the lake is great for fishing and swimming. Thank you Ron and Cindy. We loved it!

Perfect for our family vacation rental

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing vacation our family had at the Loon's Nest cabin. Ron and Cindy were great hosts and added all the touches that truly made our stay here feel just like home. The homemade salmon dip that greeted us to the salmon dinner on the grill we ate the night before we left let us know how much our hosts cared about making our stay a memorable one. The cabin was perfect for our family; just the right size and all the charm just made this place that much more special. We deeply appreciated the fishing gear Ron provided for the boys to fish with as well as the canoe and kayak available for their travels out on the lake to do so. Our family arrived as guests but left as friends. Our sincerest thanks to both of you for all you did for our family and for the wonderful time we had while staying here. You guys rock!! We can't wait to come back again and stay!! We miss Ellie Mae and Raven, too!

Where should I start? The cabin was perfect and the location is breathtaking. Cindy And Ron were very gracious and always willing to help with planning activities. The cabin has every amenity you can think of. We used the kayaks and cruised the entire lake. Watched seaplanes take off right in front of the dock which was very cool. Day trips to Palmer, salmon fishing, hiking in Hatchers Pass and just relaxing on the lake. A perfect vacation home away from home!!

Great Lakeside Cabin

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, toddler and I recently sent 3 days here. The cabin is beautiful and has everything you would need. It has a large sitting area with incredible lake views. The owners are very easy to work with. The location is ideal to visit Talkeetna, Denali, Anchorage, Seward. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Alaska.

25th Anniversary Vacation to Alaska

  • 5 out of 5
Cindy & Ron were so helpful prior and during our trip with suggestions.

The cabin was so homey and welcoming!! Loved the view of Cottonwood Lake and enjoyed waking up to the Loon calls.

The cabin had all amenities and more. The location was great for driving to other parts of Alaska and see all that we could.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Anchorage/Wassila.

Loved this cabin!! We were visiting family in the area and this cabin was perfect for hanging out. The owners were incredibly helpful and my daughter loved playing with their dogs. We spent the evenings on the water or around the fire pit and the mornings on the dock enjoying the eagles and Loons.
