PRIVATE LAKESIDE 3BR CABIN W/ 1000FT SHORELINE & 3 DOCKS TO EXPLORE

Willow Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Private Lakeside Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Rainbow Lake Lodge is a completely private cabin home on its own spacious lot in a quiet lake setting 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.

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.

Steve and Sharon are long time Alaskans. We have been bringing our family and friends to the lake since 1978. We built both the vacational rental and our separate Log Cabin Lodge and spend as much time here as we can. Steve is retired from the State of Alaska, has been a pilot, registered hunting guide, enjoys fishing, snow machining, and is a veteran. Sharon operates her own business in Anchorage as a Registered Guardian.

Steve or Sharon Wells purchased this cabin in 1992

We choose this area because it is conveniently located just an hour and half driving time from Anchorage, on a lake with a south facing view, on well maintained roads, with all the conveniences and far enough away to be on the edge of a wilderness type setting.

Quiet. Easy drive from Anchorage. Private Lake. Your own fully equipped apartment with beautiful view of the lake. Excellent stop over to or from Denali National Park. Travel advice and tips from Alaskans who have been to all the tourist points of interest and can offer some tips that will make your visit unique and enjoyable.

Fantastic week

  • Submitted: Sep 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We had a fantastic week with you and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were very lucky.
Day 1 - Talkeetna Air Landing on McKinley in perfect clear blue skies.
Day 2 - Mahay's riverboat ride up to Devils Canyon and sitting at the face of class 6 water.
Day 3- Fishing w Lonn of Hellbent Fishing, catching and releasing rainbows, silver salmon and grayling with some great pictures. A perfect day.
Day 4- driving over Hatcher Pass, visiting Independence Mine Historical Site
Day 5- fishing Clear Creek, getting dropped off w TriRivers Charter, catching silver salmon, dolly garden, rainbows.
We will definitely be making annual plans to visit Rainbow Lake in the future to take advantage of the great location and great hospitality.
We had a great time using Steve as a guide and trip planner and will enjoy our weeks worth of memories for years to come.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your cabin these last few days! It was just the retreat we needed after our move from Texas. We loved how quiet & peaceful it is out here & the kids loved the sandbox & playing w your grand children. We seemed to really luck out with the weather- it was beautiful!! Thank you for your hospitality & for having such a cozy cabin on the lake!

Great hospitality

  • Submitted: Sep 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
What a fun and lovely, peaceful place. We had a great time despite the rain. We spent the afternoon on Friday in Talkeetna. The jet boat ride was fun and great food at the Wildflower cafe. Saturday we enjoyed movies, games and a puzzle while we watched the rain fall onto the lake. The afternoon brought clearer skies and we enjoyed visiting with you and your family. The boys loved the sand box and lake. Zane even caught a couple of frogs and was petting them. The boys loved the dog house room. Thank you for the great hospitality.
