(We could not improve on the eloquent and detailed write up from the owner)
“Wonderful lakeside property on 2 mile long lake with glacial erratics and stunning views of Mt. McKinley and Mt. Foraker (to the north) and the Yenlo Hills (to the west). There are approximately 15 cabins on the lake.
Silence is beautiful. It’s serene. Great to wake in the morning and have a coffee on the large deck and listen to the loons calling.
Custom designed and built, this is an awesome 3-sided log cabin built in the early 2000s. Open plan, one bedroom only, but a guest room in a separate building. The property has 180 ft lake frontage and is 600 ft deep, approximately 2.21 acres.
680 watts of solar panels power a bank of eight 125 amp-hr batteries which supply a 4kw sine wave inverter. We run 3-4 days without topping up the batteries with the Honda 3kw EU generator (cantilevered off the shed).
Fly on floats in 45 mins from Lake Hood or 30 mins on wheels to the strip (and then traverse the lake). Also possible to fly in from a roadside lake 15 mins away – but you need to drive 90 mins from Anchorage to get there. Charter service is also available from this location.
Access in winter is either by ski plane or snowmachine from the trailhead about 25 miles away (and a 130 mile drive from Anchorage).
52 ft long floating dock (detachable for winter), boardwalk from the lake to the cabin – 4 ft wide and easy to haul provisions from the dock – with the cart, or the 6 wheeler (included).
The cabin is first class – a beautiful kitchen – propane stove (full size), electric fridge (full size), wood stove (with circulating fan). Bathroom with shower and hand basin – the sanitation is out back in the world’s best designer outhouse!! There is a “tinkle toilet” (a camping/RV style portable toilet) in the cabin so you don’t have to wander outside at night or the dead of winter!! But if you want to go out in Fall or Winter there are four large floodlights to help you find your way.
Bedroom is the whole loft level: 14 by 24 ft. You wake up to a view of the “Big Hill”. Otherwise known as Mt McKinley.
So what else is there? Property includes 16 by 12 “shed”, half of which is an insulated and heated guest room with a separate entrance. This is not your usual cabin fodder. The other half of the shed is tool and hardware storage with a garage style door and ramp for access. There is also an 8ft by 6ft plastic storage shed which houses garden tools, boat motor, pumps etc, located near the lake and the pump locations.
All lighting is fluorescent, low power drain and there is plenty of light upstairs and down. A 20 by 16 pole barn contains a wood-splitting area with a gas powered log splitter, wood storage, outdoor fire-pit, brush chipper Polaris 6 wheeler, Yamaha long-track snowmachine, aluminum ladders and working platform and two wind surfers.
Included are all the tools to garden and pumps needed to supply water from the lake to the cabin for showers and dish washing. Fresh drinking and cooking water comes from an enclosed spring about 100 yds north. This is the best water in the world. Flows at about 20gpm and surfaces at about 40 degrees F. It flows year round.
All appliances, power system and generator, furniture, dishes, pots and pans, cutlery and a few decorative items are included. See photos for views of these items.” Chris Phillips
