My place is situated on 1.3 acres in the heart of Wasilla. It feels like you're in the wilderness yet you'll be close to town for shopping, and it is a 30 minute drive to Anchorage. This cottage style house can accommodate 4 as I have an air mattress available upon request. The neighborhood is beautiful with a 2.5 mile walking trail. I do like hosting people and and hope you enjoy my special abode in Alaska.
A large part of the property is woods with a trail that leads to the creek. There is a deck and chairs available for viewing wildlife and just enjoying the beauty. I've coined the phrase "Creek Therapy" as I have spent many hours in the peace and serenity. The Alaskan Railroad passes nearby and can be heard tooting its horn a few times a day. You'll hear my husky mix howl along with the train's whistle!
Come stay in the stylish one bedroom cottage in the heart of Wasilla. The beautifully decorated in-law house is situated on the same property as the main house, with its own separate entrance and two private decks. It has a cozy queen bed and an air mattress can be provided to accommodate more quests. The kitchen comes fully equipped with all basic cookware and utensils for your convenience. This charming atmosphere has all the amenities you will need like high speed internet, microwave, TV and cable.
I like to socialize with guests but give them their space as well. I am available to to answer questions and help as needed.
As noted in the space description my home is located by the railroad track. In the summer the Alaskan railroad passes by at least 4 times a day. It does come by early in the morning between 6:30-7:00 am. Most of my guest like the ambience of the Alaska railroad. However, if you are sensitive to a train blowing its horn it would not be ideal for you.
Quiet time 10 p.m. Smoking is allowed outside only. Pets on approval.
I like to have fun and meet new people. I am new to Airbnb but have rented to many traveling professionals. This is what Kate, a physical therapist from San Diego had to say, "I stayed at Nola's in-law cottage for six months while doing contract work for a local hospital. The house was my little paradise to return to everyday. As a traveler, I've stayed in several "corporate furnished apartments" that were void of style or much comfort, but not Nola's. Her place was not only impeccably clean and nicely furnished, but truly relaxing. The main house is only ten feet away from the cottage, but due to the way the houses are oriented there is plenty of privacy while sitting out on either of the two decks. I spent many hours in fall and winter exploring and relaxing out at Cottonwood Creek, which flows along the edge of the property, in total solitude. Moose often passed fifteen feet outside my window, and bald eagles can be seen flying over the property every day. Salmon and rainbow trout run the creek at the end of summer. It's amazing that the home is only five minutes from downtown Wasilla (and about two minutes from the nearest coffee stand!) and I could be at work in no time. If working from home, the internet was always sufficient, and the cottage has great light. The shower and water pressure is fantastic! Nola was the perfect host- always available if I needed anything, very communicative and friendly, but respectful of space. I would absolutely recommend staying a night or an entire season at Nola's if you find yourself visiting the Mat-
Su Valley! "
