This new, light and airy lake front home looks at Sarah Palin's 'Alaska'. The Palin Home can easily be viewed from the front deck-as is the spectacular Matanuska Glacier. Lake Lucille offers the peace and beauty of remote Alaska, but the convenience of being within the city limits of Wasilla. It is accessible to many of the great wonders of Alaska and suitable day trips to glaciers, waterfalls, fishing, and hiking.
Although secluded it is only five minutes from downtown Wasilla.
The kitchen living room has a large sliding door which opens to the front deck. There are three bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has a queen bed and overlooks the lake. The lovely private bath has a window to the woods. The larger 2nd bedroom has a king size bed and overlooks the lake. This room shares a family bath with tub or shower with a third bedroom that has twin beds and a toddler crib. It overlooks the woods.
The single car garage has a medium size upright freezer, and some recreation equipment available for use.
Nights on the Lake are quiet and calm.

Vicki Malone was born and raised in Alaska. As a girl she came to the 'cabin' on Lake Lucille with her family to enjoy the wonderful summers full of water skiing, swimming, site seeing and hiking. She lives in Bethel, Alaska and enjoys time at Lake Lucille with her four granddaughters. In 2009, she tore down the old cabin and built a 3 bedroom home on the Lake. She named the new house 'Bob's Bungalow' after her dad.
Vicki Malone purchased this house in 2009
I want to retire on Lake Lucile. The Matanuska Valley is the heart land of southcentral Alaska. You experience the wild beauty of Alaska within minutes of all the conveniences of shopping and within an hour of the big City.
This is a great home to enjoy Alaska. The day trips from here are great. I am especially fond of Hatcher Pass, the Matanuska Glacier. I love spending the day in Talkeetna and taking the train to Hurricaine Gulch. I love coming home and watching the sunset on the lake. I have the morning sun on the deck. There are days when I don't leave the Lake. It is too beautiful and relaxing.
We found Bob's Bungalow the perfect place for our family to stay....all four generations of us! The home was so cozy, clean, and had everything we needed including being very baby friendly. Its location was ideal for taking day trips and was close to stores when needed. How we enjoyed the spectacular view of the snow-covered mountains, kids with dogs playing on the frozen lake, and the magical northern lights! We highly recommend Vicki and her bungalow, and we thank her for the memories!!
We travelled a long way to meet our first grandchild and this was the perfect place for it. The view of the lake and mountains was fantastic. The peace and tranquility - outstanding! Since the lake was frozen solid we observed people and vehicles travelling accross it - even a plane taking off every morning! Awesome! Even though it was cold and snowy the house was so cozy and comfortable. The house is furnished with everything you need and beautifully decorated. The photos do not do it justice. We would love to come back in fall! Everything about are experience was fabulous. There could not be any better place to stay in the area.
The views of Lake Lucille and the surrounding mountains are breathtaking, whether from the deck, the spacious yard, or inside the house. Every room has a view! As if that were not enough, there are even kayaks and a canoe so you can take in the tranquility of Lake Lucille, which is in your backyard. One of our favorite features was the float planes taking off on the lake - right in front of the house (but far enough away to be safe). They sound just like a Ferrari pulling onto the freeway! Need groceries or want to go out to eat? No problem, the center of Wasilla is just a five-minute drive away. Views and tranquility combine with modern convenience! The house itself is extremely well built and well thought out, with features such as radiant in-floor heating, triple-pane windows, and AMAZING well water. You feel more healthy breathing the fresh air and bathing in the wonderful water. Now to the best part: the owner. Vicki is WONDERFUL. My family arrived late at night but she was still there to greet us and make sure everything was okay. She was available at the drop of a hat (or the delivery of a text message) to assist us with anything we needed during our month-long stay. We have already made plans to stay here again; it really feels like home.
I'd like to say this property is a waste of money so it will be available whenever I want it, but I could not do this to Vicki. We had a blast and what a view !!! We had friends over and sat by the fire pit all weekend. Exactly what we needed. It felt like we were family the way she treated us. Thanks Vicki, our friends are already looking to rent from you.

House is basically brand new. This is our second summer staying at Bob’s Bungalow & we plan to come back next year. The renter is very pleasant to work with & has gone above & beyond to see that the rental is fully stocked with everything you may need. Lake frontage is awesome & there is a rowboat that my 3 daughters learned to row in. Last summer was funny watching them go in circles. This summer was awesome watching them row around the lake with confidence. Thank you Vicki for the awesome memories & awesome lodging.
