About the property

2 Bedroom 1.5 Bath Condo On Wasilla Lake

Christy's Cottage is a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath condo nestled on beautiful Wasilla Lake bathed in sunshine and meditative views. Conveniently located just minutes outside downtown Wasilla city limits, providing city amenities to enjoy. If you are in town to work for an extended period and want a place to call home, consider Christy's Cottage.

Christy's Cottage is new to the executive rental market. This home is immaculate and

appointed with new furnishings. It is always a luxury to be surrounded in a professionally decorated home with new furnishings. We want you to feel pampered by providing you with gourmet coffee roasted in Palmer, Alaska for your enjoyment, or a large assortment of Summit Tea & Spice teas from Anchorage, Alaska.

It is our sincere desire that you can go out during the day and wrestle with our great Alaskan rugged outdoors and come home and clean up and feel nurtured. The lake can be so relaxing to watch in the evenings and listen to our occasional loons. The lake can also be a play ground for both you and your neighbors.

* Christy's Cottage has a one hour advantage over Anchorage locations when planning a trip to Mount McKinley or Fairbanks. A convenient location for glacier sight seeing and charter fishing.

* Christy's Cottage can adjust room rental to a 1 bedroom master suite only and offer home at a reduced rate.

About Christy Rush

I have lived in Alaska over 30 years, and am a licensed Realtor for over 20 years. I am pleased to manage and offer this lovely lake cottage for rent to you. I enjoy the outdoors and spend my free time hunting, fishing, ATVing, and flying my Piper Cherokee. Owning properties and keeping up with the maintenance and upgrades occupies the rest of my time.

Christy Rush purchased this condo in 2013

Why Christy Rush chose Alaska

Christy's Cottage is located on one of Wasilla's largest lakes. Surrounded by beautiful Alaskan homes, over looking the majestic Talkeetna mountains. One can rent jet skis or kayaks and park them at our private dock, or take our canoe, (provided for your use), out on a peaceful evening.

What makes this condo unique

The unique quality of staying here is enjoying the Alaskan experience of overlooking a lake with snow capped mountains around you yet only being a few miles from all the conveniences of shopping and dining out.

Great place to stay with even greater views

  • 5 of 5

Christy's cottage was everything I could have wanted during our stay. Great location, amazing views, and the house is very cozy. The house is right on the lake and in a nice quiet location. However, it's still only a 5-10 minute drive from grocery stores, resteraunts, etc. The owner is easy to get ahold of and is very accommodating. I would highly suggest staying here to anyone looking to stay in the Wasilla area.

Christy's Cottage was so peaceful and relaxing. It was everything, even more than, we were hoping for. Beautiful location on the lake, stunning views, and easy access to all Alaska has to offer. We really appreciated how clean the cottage was and the high quality of the bedding and towels. Having a canoe and paddle boat to explore the lake was a treat. The simple and tasteful Cape Cod décor and feel is perfect. Thank you for the recommendations for dining too, Grape Tap was stellar. Highly recommend Christy's Cottage and we'll definitely be back.

Wonderful place with great views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 17 month old, stayed at Christy's Cottage while visiting family in Wasilla. Christy was very accomodating and provided us with a crib and baby gate for the stairs. Because of this we were able to travel with less items and felt more comfortable in the home with our young toddler. Christy also provided a baby life vest for my toddler. There was a paddle boat and canoe. My sister's family was able to visit us at the home. Her four kids were able to play in the grass and go out on the paddleboat with us. This was a treat for them since their father is in the military and has been deployed for over six months. Even my sister's eldest child with autism was able to enjoy paddle boating with our family. Most of us had never been on a canoe or paddle boat before. It was very beautiful and enjoyable. We had an amazing great time on the lake and great memories were made.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Christy's cottage and had the most wonderful experience! The home was clean and beautifully cared for. We stayed an entire week and were completely stocked with everything promised in the description from laundry supplies to toiletry items to the most delicious assortment of coffee and tea. We spent most of our time fishing from the dock and rowing around in a huge canoe of Christy's! We even had a few questions regarding stores and items within the nearby community, to which she was more than happy to answer at any time. As someone who traveled from very far away, we felt safe and relaxed our entire stay in an unfamiliar neighborhood. Thank you Christy for this amazing addition to our vacation. We would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be staying again during next years visit!

Cozy, quiet and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Alaska, and Christy's Cottage had been recommended by local friends. This was a great recommendation, as the condo was cozy, quiet and comfortable. The living room, kitchen and dining room all face out to the beautiful lake (steps away from the condo) and gorgeous mountain views. There was a canoe with paddles, life vests, etc. available for us and we took full advantage of peaceful mornings canoeing on the lake. From the kitchen stocked with gourmet coffees and teas, to the light, crisp, beachy/cottage décor - we almost didn't want to leave the condo to go exploring!

The location worked out perfectly for us - Anchorage, Eagle River, Wasilla, and Denali were all easy drives for fun activities like hiking, fishing, shopping, 4-wheeling, museums, glaciers and Mt. McKinley viewing. We had an amazing week and plan to come back again. And when we do, we'll be staying at Christy's Cottage!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

My time at Christy's Cottage was wonderful. The lake and mountain views from every room is truly an Alaskan experience to remember. The rooms are bright and airy, the cottage theme is tastefully done and the property is so clean you can truly relax and enjoy. I highly recommend this property.
