Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Wasilla - Carriage House
1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 1-2)
Carriage house sitting on a bluff on 5 wooded acres nestled in Alaska farmland. Inside, knotty pine ceilings and a chalet style roof line create a warm environment. Cook your fresh catch of Alaska salmon in the full kitchen. Sleep well in the full size bedroom with a queen size bed and double closet. Top/down-bottom/up blinds will keep the Midnight Sun out, if you wish. Satellite TV and WiFi Internet access allow you to keep in touch.
Outside, the view from the south facing, 2nd story deck includes Pioneer Peak and East Twin Peaks. In Spring and Fall, nearby fields hold migrating sand hill cranes and geese. A fire pit with nearby double-waterfall water feature make a perfect environment to relax and enjoy rural south central Alaska at its best.

Katie and Dale Fosselman are the owners of Carriage House. Katie, is a CPA who has owned her own firm in Palmer for 20 years and Dale is a credit union executive. We have lived or worked in the Matanuska Valley since 1984. Katie, whose grandfather ran a gold dredge in Fairbanks in the early 1900's, is lifelong Alaskan and Dale will reach the 30 year mark in 2011. In Alaska, we enjoy sea kayaking, skiing, fishing and canoeing. In the past 15 years we have been bitten by the travel bug and have visited more than 20 countries from Perth,Australia to Mostar, Bosnia-Hercegovina. We enjoy going to new places and try to help visitors have a rewarding visit to our neck of the woods.
We lived in the Carriage House for 6 months while we completed construction of our current home. Along with our 2 golden retrievers, we enjoy the benefits of living on a 5 acre parcel bordered by a Colony farm and open fields with an oustanding view. The design and amenities of Carriage House - full galley kitchen, double closet, W/D, satellite TV - that made the property suitable for a longer term stay also seem to make it quite nice as short term accommodation.
