Nancy Lake is a popular state recreation site -- nearby streams and lakes offer some of Alaska's finest Salmon, Trout, and Pike fishing. It is less than 15 minutes from Deshka Landing. The area includes an extensive (foot, canoe, snow machine) trail and waterway system of connected lakes and rivers. There are 100's of miles of trails, some of which connect to the International Iditarod trail (which lead to Nome on the Bering Strait.)

Nancy Lake is a large lake (five miles long), and is perfect for a full spectrum of watersports and winter sports. Hatcher Pass, also nearby, offers scenic vistas, excellent hiking and berry-picking opportunities in summer, and skiing and snowmobiling in winter.

Favorite activities as reported by previous guests:

ON THE PROPERTY -- swimming, boating, canoeing, waterskiing, hiking, fishing, sitting around the pit-fire to roast marshmallows, snow-machining, sledding, reading (great books available in our library), playing board games, cards, or the electronic game system, barbecuing delicious meals, watching movies (large selection in our video library) on the new flatscreen TV, and relaxing in comfortable chairs on the decks or dock as you enjoy the gorgeous views.

OFF THE PROPERTY (driving distance) -- fishing (world-class fishermen have been our guests!), river rafting, walking on a glacier, 4-wheeling, horse-back riding, mountain biking, visiting the musk-ox farm, dog-sled teams, goldmines, museums, Denali, Palmer, Wasilla, Hatcher's Pass, and Talkeetna.

About Theresa Wolcott

Jim and Theresa, with their three kids, have had a little dry cabin on the lake for 20+ years, where they have been blessed with many wonderful memories. When the villa property became available (next lot over) they bought it, fixed it up, and have had the pleasure of making it available to vacationers from all over the world. It has been a great experience working with all the fabulous people who have come to stay on the property. They sincerely hope you enjoy the villa as much as they do!

Why Theresa Wolcott chose Alaska

A great place to relax and play! It's 'eye-candy' everywhere you look...we love Nancy Lake!

What makes this chalet unique

I love to hear the loons in the early mornings as I drink my morning coffee. I always feel a sense of peace when I'm relaxing by the lake and never get tired of the feeling of 'wilderness' all around us.

Note: We have a very cute 'dry' (no plumbing) guest cabin (queen bed) available in case a larger group of six is interested in spreading out. It is available for an additional $50 per night.

Secluded home in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Secluded but not isolated. Flight of stairs to living quarters. Washer and dryer in first floor garage. Clean, plenty of supplies. Excellent view, very comfortable. We enjoyed the paddle boat on the lake. Would certainly recommend to friends and family.

Iron and ironing board would be helpful.

Absolutely gorgeous, well maintained property. Owners are fantastic people. Best place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home on the shore of Nancy Lake. Decorated in classy, artistic Alaskan theme. Amazing views of the lake. Very clean and well stocked. Our entire family was impressed and would highly recommend this place. The owners are very kind and competent professionals. We have rented a number of vacation homes over the years, but this one tops the list as the absolute best!

Fantastic Alaskan Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Alaska at this awesome lake house. The Walcotts who own the property were extremely helpful and did everything to make our stay the best ever. The house was very clean and was well stocked. Nancy Lake is a great recreational lake. The property is located in a great location for experiencing Alaska. Great Fishing nearby on Willow Creek. Overall I highly recommend this place while visiting Alaska!

Peaceful luxury with the comforts of home in the middle of a wilderness paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Jim and Theresa have gone to great lengths to ensure that the villa has everything you need for a great stay! Their Nancy Lake Villa has all of the comforts of home in serene and beautiful surroundings. They obviously take great pride in ensuring that their guests are well cared for, comfortable, and have a great time. We were a group of 2 families (4 adults and 3 kids) that stayed 8 nights in July 2017 and we couldn't have asked for more from our stay. We very much enjoyed kayaking and hiking around the lake and most of all just relaxing in peace. Jim and Theresa recommended a couple of great kayak/hike trips on the lake. Because they have 4 kayaks, a paddle boat, canoe, and collection of all sizes of life jacket, we were able to outfit our entire group and saw plenty of wildlife on our treks. In addition, we enjoyed beautiful sunsets each night on the dock along with a view of Denali on a clear day. Thanks Jim & Theresa for a relaxing, comfortable, and peaceful stay, but most of all for making new friends in Alaska!
