Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Wasilla

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

This original homestead cabin overlooks Cornelius Lake, is along side a salmon creek, and sports views of Pioneer Peak and the surrounding Chugach Mountains. From this cabin, 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. You will want to enjoy a BBQ dinner eaten at the picnic table right outside the cabin front door. While you are relaxing you will want to watch the pair of loons and a pair of white swans enjoying their summer visit to the lake. Birds abound between these 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, so you can watch both red and silver salmon (runs take place in August and September) as they make their way to their spawning grounds.

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.

This log cabin has two cozy bedrooms upstairs. The larger one features a custom built pine queen size bed while the smaller one has 2 single beds. The new bathroom is located on the main floor and features a large tiled shower. The beautiful kitchen area has granite counter tops, an electric stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, refrigerator, and a washer and dryer. Linens and kitchen utensils, pots, and pans are provided. The living room has a comfortable leather couch, custom blinds for privacy, and large windows for gazing at the spectacular views of ' nature at its best'.

The cabin is not suited to folks with a physical disability or those who are traveling with very young children. The stairs are steep.

Keywords: historic log cabin, lakefront and creek access, mountain views, centrally located, easy access to highways, 1 hour drive from Anchorage

About Kathryn

Bob and I have lived in Alaska for more than 30 years. We love living here in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley and we love our lives. Bob is a General Contractor who builds custom homes locally. I am a teacher who loves working with elementary students at a local public school. Our two sons are hockey players. One son is currently out of state attending college. The other son lives is Anchorage and is currently working as a civil engineer there.

We are a very busy and active family.For more than 10 years, Bob and our younger son have both run the Mt. Marathon race in Seward on the fourth of July. We kayak and camp in Katchemak Bay every summer with friends. We like to ride bikes, hike, fish, and play golf. We have an older yellow Lab that is a 'frizbee nut' and goes everywhere with us.

Kathryn purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Kathryn chose Wasilla

The Mat-Su Valley really has the best of what Alaska has to offer, and we have lived here for twenty four years. We bought this amazing piece of property ten years ago. Bob built this great home on the bluff overlooking one lake at the back of the property. On the front of the property was an original homestead cabin. It took us 3 years to remodel the inside of the cabin and save most of the original logs. It is beautiful and we now would like to share it with others in the summer months.

What makes this cabin unique

If you enjoy watching birds like we do, you will especially enjoy your visit to this homestead cabin on Cornelius Lake . In addition to local water fowl and eagles, we get to enjoy viewing the many migratory birds who visit Alaska in the summer. Last summer Neklason was the temporary summer to home to a pair of white swans who raised six signets here. The parents lead the flotilla in parade style around the shore of the lake everyday when the signets were strong and big enough.The parents modeled for their youngsters 'touch-and-go' landings on water, traveling between our two lakes. We watched all 6 of the signets grow to young adults and then one day we watched all 8 of them fly south together in late September. It was soooo exciting!!

BEST DECISION IN YEARS, WONDERFUL

  • 5 out of 5
I only wish I had been able to stay longer. This cabin was everything claimed on the website and more. Beautiful views, well decorated, comfortable furniture and beds, well appointed kitchen and the flowers were beautiful. I have a difficult time walking and climbing and the stairs were steep and narrow but I was sure glad I decided to take a chance on this cabin and negotiated the stairs without a problem. If I am lucky enough to travel to this area again, I will definitely plan a longer stay at this wonderful cabin. Kathryn is such a nice hostess and provided an abundance of information. While there we took day trips to the Palmer area, Denali, Anchorage and Valdez. This spot is centrality located and the Alaska Railroad has a station in Wasilla which is a big plus.

Beautiful Cabin and View

  • 5 out of 5
We loved the cabin and wished we were staying longer so much more than pics show. We went for my cousin's wedding at Settler's Bay Lodge and wished we had more time to enjoy everything offered with the cabin. Kathryn was helpful and also brought me things I forgot to do the hair before the wedding(dryer and rollers). Our daughter loved the cabin too and already said we are going back. Location seemed centralized too for all the places we went while there.

Perfect "Base Camp" for Alaskan Adventures

Perfect "Base Camp" for Alaskan Adventures
  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I were pleased with everything about our stay at this home. The hosts were conscientious and gracious and the home had everything we needed. It's perfect for a couple, but could accommodate
more if necessary. It's a short drive to some beautiful hiking trails and drives. The kayaks and access to the lake were nice for an evening paddle in the bright nights of an Alaskan summer.

perfect family cabin!

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our five night stay in this cozy cabin. The owners are great. They welcomed us with treats of homemade smoked salmon and all the fixings for smores by the fire pit. We used the boat and kayaks everyday. The cabin was clean with everything we needed. The stairs are crazy steep but my six and nine year old didn't have any problems. We hope to stay here again on our next Alaskan adventure!

Wasilla Log Cabin

  • 4 out of 5
We reserved 10 days at this very clean, cozy log cabin north of Wasilla. The location suited us to do activities off the Parks and Glen Highways. The owners provided all necessary amenities. The mountain vistas off the deck were majestic. The only thing we, personally, did not care for was the traffic on paved road deck-side. Traffic and noise from it did not make for pleasant outdoor seating/eating for us. Also the stairs to upstairs bedroom were narrow and steep, which may be a concern to some travelers.
