About The Owner

Irene has lived in Wasilla for over 40 years and enjoys sharing her unique property with visitors from around the world.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1997

Why The Owner chose Alaska

The lake cabin was originally built by Irene's late father-in-law in 1952 as a family get-away. Over the years the cabin has been a family cabin, a full time rental and now a vacation rental.

What makes this cabin unique

Irene lives on the property next to the lake cabin. She enjoys the amazing sunrises over the majestic Pioneer Peak, dramatic sunsets to the west end of the lake. The local moose population varies during the year but is not uncommon to have two or three moose at one time in the area, and they certainly do enjoy eating Irene's Mountain Ash and apples trees. The property is conveniently located 5-minutes from Wasilla, making it easy to get to just about anything, but still offers seclusion and privacy.

Beautiful, quiet and serene

  • 5 of 5

The owner could not be sweeter! The location is nice and quiet and sits right at the water, giving you a beautiful view of the lake. It is an older cabin with a comfy feel of home. I slept great and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I will definitely stay here again!

This little cabin has everything you need, plus a beautiful view right on Wasilla Lake. It was clean and well-stocked, very comfortable. I would stay there again, for sure!

Wonderful get away

  • 5 of 5

Both my husband and I loved staying at Irene's cabin. It was clean, neat, private and enough room very comfortably for us. The setting on the lake was so beautiful and peaceful. In fact anytime I am traveling down to the Wasilla/Anchorage area I am hoping the cabin will be available.

Good times by the lake.

  • 4 of 5

Fun, cozy cabin… beautiful scenery from the back porch and out by the lake. Studio is spacious and sleeps three, in addition to a recliner. We only stayed for two days and didn't need them, but the washer and dryer are a nice option too. The bathroom has washcloths and towels, but they're pretty basic - I'd suggest bringing your bath items from home. A nice place to step away from it all and get some R&R, without being too remote. My husband and I had a great getaway weekend and would definitely stay again!

Great place for some rest and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Irene's cabin by the lake was a great place for my husband and me to visit after several weeks of craziness with family and events. We were able to sleep in the comfortable queen sized bed, eat meals in the kitchenette without having to go out for every meal, and enjoy siting on the dock on sunny afternoons. The studio set up is spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was well stocked with towels and such things (had a hair dryer, but you should bring your own shampoo, etc). Even though the cabin is next to the big house it was very private. The room had blinds to block out the Alaskan sun, but was brought in plenty of light during the day. Though there were only two of us, the place can sleep three. All in all, we really enjoyed the stay and would go back again!
