4 Br, 2 Bath, North & South-facing Decks to Enjoy the Water and Mountain Views
Our family retired from the military at Ft. Bragg, NC in 2006 and moved to Alaska to finish raising our children. Randy started his second career working for the state on the Alaska Marine Highway (ferry system), and Colleen started a very rewarding job working for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough (MatSu) as a firefighter. That job excelled over the next six years to becoming an engineer with West Lakes Fire Department and an EMT. Our children are grown and live nearby with grandchildren arriving yearly:)
Colleen purchased this House in 2006
Why Colleen chose Wasilla
We recently secured jobs out of state that may become permanent. However, we're not ready to sell our house yet. We've put years into upgrading it, and we just love our home. We receive a lot compliments, and people wonder why we would ever want to leave. We're trying something new in our new found empty nest status, and are hoping to share some of the beauty and comfort of our home with others to enjoy.
What makes this House unique
We believe we have the best location on the lake for views and access. The lake is a peaceful wildlife breeding area with no loud speedboats or jet skis, although it becomes a roadway for snowmachiners in the winter. The lake freezes to about 2 feet thick making it a perfect place to ice fish, cross-country ski, or snow shoe. There is also a snow machine, ATV, and camper rental dealer in Wasilla for the very adventurous vacationers.

Spacious comfortable home with nice views
This vacation rental had everything we needed, and for once everything worked as advertised. TV and internet worked great. Kitchen was well supplied with all of the little things you need to cook - spices, syrups, condiments, coffee, etc. Colleen was quick to respond, and she was very helpful answering questions about the area. Everything in the house was clean and nicely updated. It was a comfortable house to stay in, and the large deck had a wonderful view of the lake. The canoe was an added bonus, and it was very fun to paddle around the lake. We would stay here again.
Pictures didn’t do the view justice
Our family had a great stay! The house is beautiful. Both front and back decks offer great views of the lakes and plenty of solitude. Would highly recommend!
The home was clean beautiful and in a quite spot. I can only imagine how beautiful the lake is in the summer. Highly recommend this VBRO
Great home and location
Loved the home and location. Shared the home with 3 friends and hiked 11 trails in 7 days. It was nice to come back to a comfortable home every evening. Would definitely recommend it and will use again in the future
Wonderful home ... they had everything we needed
We had a toddler with us and the house had everything we needed. Great kitchen and home layout. I'd highly recommend it for families.
Exceptional cleanliness, great location. Exactly as advertised
Great time, all we wanted
Views of Mt. McKinley within a short drive, Fur Rendezvous in February, Iditarod in March, halibut, rock fish, and salmon fishing charters from May through September. Year round rainbow trout fishing in the lake just steps away.
