The original Sourdough / “Homesteader” Cabin. This truly is remote and challenging to get to, most perfectly suited for the serious outdoorsman.
In order to find this place, well anyone can do that with the coordinates on the Google map and see the blue-roofed wilderness cabin on the edge of the meadow. Summer access is by bush plane on floats, around $400 from Willow, somewhat more from Anchorage. Fly over miles of wilderness with a great view of McKinley and the Alaska Range on a clear day. Land on a small lake and then pack across public land for a good mile on a wilderness trail to this cabin. Winter access would be by bush plane on skis to the same landing lake, followed by snowshoeing up to the cabin; or by snowmachine along the Yentna River from Willow to Donkey Lake (usually a trail) and from Donkey Lake you will be on your own. 5’ of snow on the ground is not unusual. Snowmachine access from the Petersville Road may also be possible. The nearest resident is about 1 mile away. You might never run into other people on this land.
There are black bear, grizzly and moose in the area. There are often ducks on the landing lake in the fall, and big pike year-round. There are grouse to hunt in the fall. The property has about 1,500’ of frontage on a creek with rainbow trout. There is a larger stream within walking distance which holds silver, chum, and pink salmon in season, as well as grayling and rainbows. The cabin is well stocked including fishing gear, and even a bow and arrow if you want to imitate our fore father’s lifestyle.
Drinking water is supplied by a natural spring about 50’ behind the cabin. There is a cleared area for a garden. There are plenty of big trees, mostly spruce and birch, for firewood or further building, with a thick understory in places. A chainsaw mill is included for sawing your own lumber. You can see a glimpse of the Alaska Range through a gap in the trees which can be widened with future wood cutting.
The cabin is rough but it provides all the basic shelter one needs in this harsh environment. It has a metal roof, wood stove, cooker, pots & pans, and lots of books related to wilderness living. Included are hand tools, an old Skidoo Tundra in good running condition, an 1850 Watt generator, a sluice box, a solar panel, garden tools, and chainsaws to keep your firewood stocked, as well as many other items that the seller will include in the sale.
If this in intriguing for you and you don’t mind wolves and bears as neighbors and the challenges of this remote country you may have just found the perfect place for you.
