Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

This original homestead cabin overlooks Cornelius Lake, is along side a salmon creek, and sports views of Pioneer Peak and the surrounding Chugach Mountains. From this cabin, Alaska's beauty is abundant. The cabin is close to highways for easy access to the large variety of activities and sights available here in the Mat-Su Valley. Yet, it is also the perfect place to relax. You will want to enjoy a BBQ dinner eaten at the picnic table right outside the cabin front door. While you are relaxing you will want to watch the pair of loons and a pair of white swans enjoying their summer visit to the lake. Birds abound between these two lakes, so you can watch eagles hunting and riding the air currents as you enjoy a morning cup of coffee. The cabin is also creekside, so you can watch both red and silver salmon (runs take place in August and September if you are here) as they make their way to their spawning grounds.

Use this cabin as a home base. Fishing spots, hiking areas, glaciers, animal farms, bike trails, shops, spas, gyms, and historic townsites are all located here in the Mat-Su Valley.

This log cabin has two cozy bedrooms upstairs. The larger one features a custom built pine queen size bed while the smaller one has 2 single beds. The new bathroom is located on the main floor and features a large tiled shower. The beautiful kitchen area has granite counter tops, an electric stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, refrigerator, and a washer and dryer. Linens and kitchen utensils, pots, and pans are provided. The living room has a comfortable leather couch, custom blinds for privacy, and large windows for gazing at the spectacular views of ' nature at its best'.

The cabin is not suited to folks with mobility issues or those who are traveling with very young children. The stairs are steep.
