  • Thé Perfect Lake Escape


    Erick made everything easy and welcoming. The 2 bedroom cabin was charming, clean and well appointed for my 3 boys and me. We loved the kayaks, paddle boards and paddle boat, plus Erick let us borrow some fishing gear. The boys loved the big yard and we had a nice camp fire one night. From check-in to check-out it was a wonderful stay.

    A fantastic spot of Big Lake. If you want the true Alaskan experience this is the place. We enjoyed the kayaks and the lake. Even in the rain. Victoria and Eric were just a quick text away. As stated in previous reviews it was a bit of a rough road but I expected it and rented the appropriate vehicle. We had no issues! Everything was fantastic!!!

    What we love about this is the location! Walk right out your door to your own yard and private dock. Inside, is updated and cozy after a long day outside.

    Love that we can walk out the door to a nice yard and a dock. No need to bring toys when there are kayaks and paddle boards.
