Walle's Place on Horseshoe Lake is ideal to kick back and relax; a comfortable retreat close to Anchorage for easy access but far enough to escape.
Apartment is fully equipped for weekenders or long stay. All you provide is food and clothes.
In summer birds nest and live on the lake. Moose, fox, snowshoe rabbits are in residence year round.
The lake has public boat launch and access to the winter trail system. Walle's Place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
Walle's Place is located on the north shore of Horseshoe Lake. It has a Public boat launch and is one of several lakes on a canoe trail. There's also easy access to the Big Lake Trail System for walking, snow machining and cross country skiing.

The property's north 5 acres is treed and partially cleared for wildlife viewing from the deck. Moose browse the trees. Its part of a fox's trap line. Bunnies are everywhere this year.

We live in the house on premises and available for questions, tips, assistance and general socializing. If we are cooking an Alaskan fish, game meal, harvested berry or veggie you may receive an invitation to join us.
When the lake is calm we take the floating barge out on the lake in the evening. You are welcome to join us.
Walle is a dog and greets everyone with barking. He is timid at first but loves people. His job is to watch over his domain. He loves the lake and back yard but also loves to walk himself. Gates must be closed at all times.
Sinclair is a white cat with black spots. He generally ignores humans.
Neither animal is allowed in the apartment.
I've compiled a list of good places to eat and fun things to do in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley (where we live) and in Anchorage. Please email a request for an MSWord doc.

I've lived in Alaska most of my life. Traveling the world is my new hobby but returning to Horseshoe Lake is coming home; its a place to unwind and repose.
Busy touristy destinations are tedious, although curiosity has driven the desire to see for myself at times. I prefer visiting local people and places in their day-to-day environment or venturing off the beaten path for a new experience.
I'm excited about signing up as a host for Airbnb and look forward to meeting interesting people and hearing stories about their lives and travels. I'd love to make your stay memorable (in a good way).
