Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Wasilla

2,652 SF House, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths With 2 Family Rooms, (Sleeps 8+)

Playing in the snow on your mind?? How about a snow machine hub for you and your friends?!?! Jump on your machine and ride out to Sleeping Lady, the Yetna River and beyond from our place! The extensive trail system near Point Mackenzie is all within minutes of our place!! Teach the kids to safely ride on the lake powder as you drop ice fishing lines for a trout dinner! Tired after a long ride? Take a relaxing break in our lake side sauna while the kids play on our sledding hill or stoke up a toasty fire in our firepit! Coordinate your stay with the Knik 200 Sled Dog Race or Jr. Iditerod Sled Dog Race and watch the start and/or finish from our deck! Enjoy a campfire as you watch the Knik Lake Vintage Snow Machine Race. Also exciting is the Iditerod Trail Invitational, which is a human powered ultra marathon on the historic Iditarod Trail. The two distances are 350 miles to McGrath or 1000 miles to Nome. Competitors from all over the world compete by bicycle, foot or ski with the race start on our lake! Winter is a time to play in Alaska!

Now is your time to truly experience Alaska from our mountain facing lakefront home. Located within few minutes drive from numerous prime salmon and rainbow fishing holes, you will need an extra photo memory card to capture shots of all the fish you land! Primer salmon fishing at the Little Su River is less than 10 minutes away and Fish Creek is within 2 minutes from our place! Wade the rivers or take our kayak out onto the lake, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better location for the die-hard fisherman!

Not here for the fishing? Guests may also simply relax and savor the lakefront mountain view from the open deck. No noisy jet ski's on our lake! Knik Lake is one of the few local non-motorized lakes which equals unbeatable serenity not to mention safety for swimmers and kayak paddlers. During your stay, enjoy a scenic five minute drive to the 18-hole Settler's Bay Golf Course and fine dining at the Settlers Bay Lodge or take a five minute walk to the local Knik Lake Bar which features food, beverages, local entertainment and pool tables. Complete the day with an evening campfire or fully take in the endless summer sun with a midnight game of volleyball from our sand court! Experience the true Alaska as you enjoy our lakeside rustic sauna while you listen to the loons coo love songs in summer or the priceless call of the Iditerod sled dogs as you watch the northern aurora borealis in winter. Coordinate your summer visit with the Alaska State Triathalon and watch the start, the lake swim and finish from our dock!

We offer a fully furnished kitchen, new furniture and new linens. All dishes, utensils & glassware included. We cater especially to outdoor enthusiasts and families with small children, providing a small row boat, kayak, lake floatation, huge lawn and sand play area with volleyball system onsite.

The lodge is 2,652 square feet allocated between two levels with a king bedroom suite with an additional twin sofa sleeper couch, a bathroom, rec / laundry area on lower level. Main level includes a full bathroom, formal dining area, huge living room with a gas fireplace and 42' flat screen TV and fully furnished kitchen. Main level bedrooms include one queen suite and one youth suite with two bunk beds (four twin beds total). The home affords wireless internet, local phone service and cable. Patio furniture is also provided for your convenience.

About The Owner

Raised in Alaska I worked in the tourist industry to help pay for college. It was there that I learned the joy of sharing Alaska with travelers. Let my husband and I help you develop a love for this great place as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Wasilla

This is our vacation house as well! We gear up our three kids and ride snow machines out for winter weekends or drive out and spend the day playing in the lake during the summer. We take exceptional pride in how we clean, furnish and care for our place because it is our favorite vacation spot too!

Knik Lake offers numerous recreational activities including the start and/or finish of the Knik 200, the start, lake swim and finish of the State Triathlon and is one of the few non-motorized local lakes. The full Iditerod also runs past the lake after the Wasilla restart. The lake is fed by a fresh water spring that runs along our property line! The trout frequently convene around our floating docks feeding from the spring. Knik Lake is a trout stocked lake and is a local favorite for summer and winter fishing and paddling.

What makes this house unique

We love to walk down to Knik Bar and enjoy Friday night steak night. The steak, potato, salad and drinks are inexpensive, but the rustic charm is priceless. Local flare is what makes this a frequent hang-out with the locals. Also within walking distance is the quaint Knik Historical Museum.

Great Place for Family Summer Time Fun!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I, along with our kids and grandkids had a wonderful time in your home. The lake is quiet and the trout fishing was awesome! Our grandkids ages 4 & 8, had so much fun catching fish and taking tours in the rowboat on the lake. Don't want to forget to mention smores in the fire pit by the lake! The house was well maintained and the kitchen is modern with a big great room which makes it great for family time.

Charity the owner was very responsive to any questions.

The kids want to come back next year!

Wasilla/Knik Lake House

  • 4 out of 5
The Wasilla/Knik Lake House was good for our family of 8, ages 9 to 70...just wish we would have had more time to enjoy the lake and all provided. The location was about a mile from my brother's place where we celebrated the 4th of July and enjoyed seeing 2 generations of cousins get to know each other. A perfect 5th of July day was spent on a picnic to Hatcher's Pass with the combined families. We did have a problem with the washer that Charity handled.

Good place to stay. Very roomy. Gets a little warm in summertime. Could use some fans or A/C. Overall, good place to stay with kids. Good access to lake. Could use more shades, especially since it never gets completely dark in summertime.

Owner's Response: Kim and John, Thank you for choosing our place! It sounds like you made some wonderful Alaskan memories and lived each day to the fullest! I am so happy you were able to see the eagles too. I love watching how graceful they are.

If you get a chance, shoot me an email and let me know which rooms you had trouble getting dark at night so I can add more curtains in there. Alaska's midnight sun is hard to get use to, which is why we put both the cellular blinds and blackout curtains on each bedroom window. Also, thank you for bringing it to our attention about the fan!! The house keeper found them in the storage room. I am glad you said something because she hadn't put them out yet this summer. = ) Have a blessed summer and we hope you consider our place if your travels bring you to Alaska again in the future. ~Charity

Fisherman's Dream

Fisherman's Dream
  • 5 out of 5
This was our first time using VRBO. I must say we were extremely satisfied with our lake front rental. Our rental was as advertised and my communication with the owners was gracious and helpful. It was super clean, spacious, with all the amenities that make a home away from home truly a home. We explored Alaska during the day and looked forward to coming home to this spacious rental each evening. The view from the dinning table was fantastic....a beautiful lake with snow capped mountains in the background. We hired a guide and went salmon fishing, but we caught just as many or more fish from the our dock over the lake. We were somewhat secluded and our time there was quiet and peaceful. But, at the same time, we were near enough to Wasilla to run into town for those things we wanted or needed. I plan to use VRBO again and I would definitely recommend the Fisherman's Dream.
