Welcome to the Log Cabin at the lake. Serenity and privacy is all yours. Only a 15 minute picturesque drive from beautiful Palmer located in the Matanuska Valley. This is a new and contemporary log cabin built by one of Alaska's premier log home builders that sits on it's own private 1.25 acres in a small lake community. This is not in a cramped tourist area, here you get to enjoy Alaska like an Alaskan yet you are only 1 1/4 hours from Anchorage. But don't think you're sacrificing connectivity for the rustic life, the cabin is equipped with all the modern amenities of home including high speed internet, telephone (with free nationwide calling), Sling TV on a brand new 50" 4K UHD TV with movie channels and many premium programming choices. ROKU to enjoy streaming your favorite Netflix or Hulu subscriptions. Bluetooth Speaker which works with most mobile devices, radiant in-floor heating and of course a wood stove for those cozy nights in front of the fire. Be one of the first to stay and enjoy the zen relaxation of this home. There is a loft bedroom with his and hers closets and a beautiful view, queen bed, dresser and nightstands. Downstairs in the great room, one comfy queen Futon that sleeps two and a Simmons Beautyrest foldaway bed for those extra guests. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with a large french door refrigerator, dishwasher, full size stove, built-in microwave, toaster, coffee maker. Kitchen has all utensils and cookware. The dining area is spacious and comfortable, seats 6 and affords patio door access to the large open grilling deck with chairs, small table and BBQ Grill for enjoying the Alaska outdoors. There is a full length covered porch at the front of the cabin with Adirondack chairs and table for relaxing and watching the occasional Moose. The bathroom is large and modern with full size bath and shower. The cabin also has a modern washer and dryer with laundry items supplied.

If fishing is your passion, you are only a five minute stroll to the lake. We even supply poles and tackle. There are two golf courses just 15 minutes away that are surrounded by spectacular mountain vistas. Groceries, gas, churches, restaurants and bars are also only a short ten minute drive to Palmer. Wasilla is just twenty minutes by car and has all major shopping including Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Sears, Fred Meyers, plus a host of local stores. The famous Iditarod sled dog race begins in Wasilla every year. Just outside Palmer are Musk Ox and Reindeer Farms and Tours. Hatcher Pass is also close by and affords some great skiing in winter and hiking in summer. Both Anchorage city center and the Anchorage International Airport are an easy one and a quarter hours drive away.

What makes this cabin unique

There is simply nothing like a true log cabin experience. We call it the 'zen cabin' because of the calming effect you will feel as you walk through the door. Log homes are living breathing things and you truly feel at home and relaxed here. You will enjoy the best nights sleep of your life, no noise and you can literally hear a pin drop.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! It was very cozy and private. The only thing I would suggest to the owners would be a more efficient water filter pitcher. The current one doesn’t hold very much at all, and filters painfully slowly, so we ended up buying water from the store. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay!!!

Quiet Convenient Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the cabin with 5 teenagers for 3 nights. I chose the cabin for easy access to ziplining at Matanuska Glacier and hiking at Hatcher Pass. The cabin is also only 15 minutes from Palmer which makes it very convenient for shopping and any extras you may have forgotten. The cabin is secluded in a quiet neighborhood near a lake. The kids enjoyed the space to roam a bit outdoors and the adults enjoyed the decks and BBQ grill. We had a larger group and the owners added a few foldaway beds and supplied plenty of linen for all of our group. Overall this was a great stay in a very clean cabin that accommodated all our needs. Thanks again for making our stay special.

Better than other places in area.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was excellently furnished and set up. After using other places for several years, this is my new place to book in the future. Access was easy and the area was beautiful. 5 minute walk to the lake and 20 minutes drive to Palmer.

Alaska Gem

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful cabin is exactly as described. Its central location made a wonderful base camp for all of our Alaska adventures. It was clean, updated, had a nice lay out, and was well stocked with anything you would need. We had a wonderful time staying here and we would definitely book again.

Dream come True!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This cabin is perfect. It has everything you need. It is so comfortable. Our first day here we saw a big cow moose with her twins standing in the road. Moose tracks in the drive way. Far enough out of the city that you get the real feel of Alaska. There are plenty of places to go very close to the cabin. We visited a musk ox farm, a reindeer farm, and a gold mine all in the same day. We drove to Seward and took the day cruise to the glaciers, breathtaking! I hope to come back very soon.

What a fantastic, peaceful, and enjoyable escape during our Alaskan vacation. The Cabin provided us a place to rest in the quiet and enjoy all the comforts of home. Our vacation was filled with a mix of both outdoor adventure and quiet relaxation and we appreciated The Cabin as our retreat after a day out and about.

We enjoyed the many amenities of The Cabin that included modern comforts (dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc.) and also were grateful for the opportunity to light a fire in the woodstove on cool mornings.

We look forward to returning to The Cabin with our daughter as we felt she would enjoy staying here as well.
