Bob's Bungalow on Lake Lucille

Space 1,560 sq. ft.
Property type house


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

This light and airy lake front home looks looks up 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--a ten minute drive to the grocery store and restaurants. It is accessible to many of the great wonders of Alaska and suitable day trips to glaciers, waterfalls, fishing, and hiking. Talkeetna provide a great view of Mt. Denali and some great dining and tourist shops. Hatcherpass is only forty-five minutes drive.

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--sit by the fire and watch the ducks, grebes, muskrats and an occassional moose.

About Vicki Malone

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 five grandchildren. 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

Why Vicki Malone chose Wasilla

I want to retire on Lake Lucile. The Matanuska Valley is the heart land of southcentral Alaska. You experience the wild beauty of Alaska on the lake but are really only ten minutes of all the conveniences of shopping. Anchorage is only an hour away.

What makes this house unique

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.

Fantastic Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, and the lake view is beautiful! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bob's Bungalow. Vicki was easy to communicate with, and left good instructions for everything in the house. The location feels isolated, but it's a quick trip to grocery stores, etc., and not far from some wonderful hikes. I would definitely stay again.

What a beautiful home! The view is breathtaking with the lake and mountains! The house has everything you need. The owner, Vicki is fantastic, she will make sure you have everything ! The large windows up and down make for perfect views! Theres also a great deck and hammock for lounging. This is a great rental and close to stores and restaurants. The train less than a mile away. Very short drive to Anchorage and nice scenic drive to Denali National Park area. This house is definitely a home and Vicki.makes sure its YOUR home while staying there.

Beautiful view! Streams of sunlight throughout the house, lifts the spirit!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have had our Girlie Getaway at Bob's Bungalow. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here again. All of us really appreciate the windows that let all of the light in. Watching the sun rise over the mountains across the lake from the deck was a peaceful, wonderful experience! We love Bob's Bungalow!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a great location. The lake view is magnificent. We stayed for 10 days. We were extremely comfortable and the owner was very helpful. Everything was in great condition and we loved all the "everyday staples" that were stocked in the kitchen. We will hopefully stay there again because we visit Alaska several times a year.
