Photos and Description of the Willow vacation cabin rental

Private Lakeside Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Rainbow Lake Lodge is a completely private cabin home on its own spacious lot on a lake in Willow, Alaska. The living area is on the second floor giving guests a panoramic view of the surrounding birch tree forest and beautiful Rainbow Lake. There are two bedrooms upstairs each with a queen size bed and a downstairs bedroom with two twin size beds. There is a full kitchen and the bathroom offers you all the comforts of home.

In the summer there are three docks in different locations along our 1,000 feet of shoreline which gives our guests the opportunity to enjoy the sun as it moves across the sky. We have a short walking trail which winds its way through the property passing our flower and vegetable gardens ending at our gazebo.

Our cabin has two large decks which overlook the lake. Our neighbors on the lake are mainly here on the weekends so if you stay with us during the week you might have the lake mostly to yourself. We have no neighbors that are visable across the lake from the guest cabin which gives you unobstructed views of the Alaska wilderness. There is no public access to the lake so only property owners have access. The lake varies from absolute silence most of the time on week days to busy with watercraft enjoying the long Alaska days during the weekend.

We only have one rental on the property so you will not have to share your cabin with any other guests. We have our own cabin on the neighboring property and are always available to answer questions or assist in making your stay an excellent experience.

Rainbow Lake Lodge is located on Rainbow Lake in the heart of the Matanuska Susitna Valley, between Anchorage and Denali National Park, bordering on the Nancy Lake Recreational Area Park in Willow, the home of the Iditarod Sled dog Race restart. There are many summer recreational options. Fishing, hiking, boating, 4 wheeling, flightseeing (Mt McKinley glacier landings), touring the historic Independence gold mine, dogsled demonstrations, sightseeing and more.

Our beautiful property offers an excellent chance to just relax and enjoy the loons calling and the occasional moose, bear, or smaller wildlife that does wander by. The area is well known for its excellent fishing with Willow Creek offering salmon, trout and grayling fishing. Guided trips can be arranged. Fly out trips for flight seeing and fishing can also be arranged.
