Lot # 25: A Wild Alaskan Adventure
Ignite your family’s sense of adventure and immerse yourself in the spectacular natural beauty of Alaska!
Explore towering mountains, sparkling glaciers and amazing wildlife, all within easy reach of your beautiful mountainside retreat. Don your walking boots and venture out into the wilderness where you may spot a local resident moose or bear. Kayak the serene waters of Eklutna Lake in the breathtaking Chugach State Park or travel in style with a traditional dog-sledding ride.
With stunning mountain views and the perfect amount of seclusion, yet still conveniently only 20 minutes away from Anchorage, the three bedroom house is the perfect base for your Alaskan expedition. The start of the Mt. Baldy trail is just a stone’s throw away where you can hike to the mountaintop and revel in the panoramic view of Eagle River Valley and the surrounding mountains. Voyage out on a boat cruise to visit the sheer, awesome face of mighty Portage Glacier, a relic from the Ice Age, or for the adrenaline junkies, brave a zipline through the Alaskan canopy.
After a day of adventure, relax and take in the surroundings on the large deck with a glass of wine, while listening for wildlife. Fire up the barbeque or prepare a hot meal in the fully equipped kitchen - groceries are only five minutes away from nearby Eagle River. On a clear day, look north to see Denali, and at the right time of year, on a dark night, you may be lucky and glimpse the Northern Lights.
Last year’s winners were full of praise for the experience, writing to say “we went in early August 2017 and had a wonderful time, hiking, eating and exploring the beautiful wonders of Alaska. The highlight was seeing beavers at work, dragging logs in the lake and bringing them to their dam.”
Don’t miss the chance to get in touch with nature and experience your own Alaskan adventure!
