Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Big Lake - Big Beaver Lake House

3 BR / 2 BA private lakefront home

Ideal lakefront setting. Large shoreline lawn and dock, perfect for all to congregate for water activities - kayaks, paddle boats, canoe, paddle boards and swimming. Plenty of beach towels and lifejackets too! Custom boating services available by reservation with owner. Large deck with gas grill, two picnic tables. The house has beautiful knotty pine interior, a large kitchen; spacious dining area and large living room, all facing the lake with lots of windows. Satellite DirecTV and wifi internet access. Lots of outdoor games: ladderball, volleyball, wiffleball, to name a few. If indoor is your style - we have a sizable movie library and many board games, card games, and a Wi. Enjoy the evenings by the bonfire or enjoy a nice hot Sauna with a dip in the water (summer) or a roll in the snow (winter :~)

Bedrooms are very comfortable - new mattresses, good pillows - always fresh clean linens. All mattresses and pillows have hypo allergenic covers. One bathroom downstairs with jetted tub and shower - one bathroom upstairs with tub and shower. The kitchen is very spacious, easy to cook in and comes well stocked with everything you need.

As for other local activities.... can't name it all here. The Matanuska Susitna valley has hiking, Iditirod Mushers Dog Kennels to visit, visting Historic Talkeetna is a must, Hatcher Pass to hike and visit Independence Mine. the list goes on and on. Visitor Center is on the way too in case you need suggestions. So much to do - anything from Glacier guided tours, Ziplining to hiking and Mt. Biking is all within your front doorstep to 30 to 45 minutes from the lakehouse. Denali is about 2 hours North of Big Lake.

For Golf enthusiasts - Settlers Bay is less than 30 minutes drive.

About Scott Theis

We built this house to have lakefront house to play and enjoy time together on the lake, on the trails - all within driving distance from Anchorage.

Scott Theis purchased this house in 2000

Why Scott Theis chose Big Lake

The house has a large front yard facing the lake for setting up volley ball, croquet, touch football or just sit around the fire or on the dock and watch the sunset.

What makes this house unique

Direct access to the Big Lake snowmachine trail system. Close to many unique Alaskan activities. Hatcher Pass and Independence Mine - 30 minutes; Glaicier Tours and Whitewater rafting on Matanuska River - 45 minutes; Talkeetna - 60 minutes; Denali hikes out of Talkeetna - 60 minutes.

Spendid property

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything promised and more. It's in a wonderful location for exploring this fabulous area just north of Anchorage. We saw a mother and baby moose in the backyard the day after we arrived. The owners are terrific.

Whoa!

  • 5 of 5

"Whoa!", to quote our youngest grandson. We came to this special spot for a family reunion with grandkids from 3 mos. to 18 yrs., and accompanying adults. Each one of us, loved our time in this well-appointed and thoughtfully outfitted cabin./home There is something for everyone to do, or one can happily do nothing. It's quiet, but active and interesting all at the same time. Amenities, when needed, are not too far away. You will know this is a place the owners love and cherish. It is wonderful they are willing to share it with the rest of us.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home and the owners do a fantastic job of making it ready for guests. From the plowed driveway, porch light on, fire set and ready to light in the wood stove, and everything in the house in perfect condition our stay could not have been easier or more enjoyable. We also enjoyed the lovely home decorations, especially the "loon" theme. We spent leisurely days skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the local area. When we needed a break from physical activities we watched a little football in high definition on a very nice "tv in the woods". We look forward to a return visit.

Wow!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property with great amenities! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated all the "extras" that the owners included. The weather wasn't the greatest but as true Alaskans we made the best of it! Thanks again!

Incredible family vacation at this beautiful lake and home

  • 5 of 5

We had the most incredible family trip to this lovely lakeside home. Everything was in place for visitor use all the way from comfortable linens, kitchen appliances, griddle, crock pot, pans, grill to lakeside water toys. We used every single one of them every day! Loved watching the loons and grebes with their young nearby or on their backs. The most amazing sunsets ever. 4 Wheeling right outside the driveway and we launched a rental jet ski nearby and the kids all went water skiing, endlessly! This was our first VRBO stay in our home state of Alaska and I would recommend this to anybody from the nearby area and out of state. Also, very clean and cozy inside and a nice TV for the kids in the late evening with plenty of movies to select from. You will not be disappointed.
