A “Homesteader’s Dream” may come true with this place. Just as the original owner fulfilled his dream of having a place on Hewitt Lake he now makes it available to you to do the same for your enjoyment. By the way the original Homestead cabin is still there. It was literally hand sawed from local timbers and looks like it should be in a Jack London story.
A lot has been done since. The two story Main Cabin offers 3 bedrooms, a kitchen upstairs and a large, wide open “Great Room” downstairs with a huge wood stove that heats the whole place (even the coldest of winter days), an adjacent wood storage area, a water system and a covered walkway to the original Homestead cabin.
Of course there is the large Shop Building with a 5.5kw Luger diesel generator. There are several other storage buildings, which there will always be a use for if you spend any time in a remote area of Alaska. From storing your snowmachine to your 4 wheeler, what have you it seems you can never have enough storage area.
For those of you who are not familiar with Hewitt Lake, it is about the only good size lake that is accessible from the Yentna River system by boat, and of course you also have snowmobile access plus an apr. 1.800’ runway to accompany just about any single engine aircraft. It is about a 45 minute flight from Anchorage or a 3 hour boat trip from Willow/Deshka Landing.
There is great fishing in the lake, mainly for Northern Pike and the outlet of Hewitt Creek offers some fine King, Silver and Red salmon fishing and from there you have boat access to many tributaries of the Yentna – Skwentna River system and it’s tributaries for excellent fishing.
Moose and bear hunting is excellent! And many times moose and or bear can be seen crossing the runway, so for you pilots, “watch out” as they do not announce themselves.
A great piece of property for you and or you and a few friends together to help share the cost. $199,000.- Will get you this little piece of Paradise. With a large down payment (and not just $10K from your last heist) and your credit is better than Jesse James’, the owner may consider financing with reasonable terms. So let’s see what you have!
