What you'll do
You can park your car at the top of the private drive we built, I will be there to greet you and we will begin our walk. The road winds happily between birch and spruce trees and plants galore. It's a moderate 10-15 minute stroll down the road through boreal forest to our log home. We can take our time and ground ourselves in nature here. You gather in the beautiful views and I'll help ID plants along the way. My famous sled dog, Luzy will love to join us, I have written a book about her (Luzy Lessons, Adventures of a Wild Alaskan Husky) and she enjoys showing people the power of land. Then, a tour of our wood-fired sauna, my favorite way to bathe! The shop, and our solar energy set-up is next. You will see how we have built with the forest, hauling everything ourselves, including water. We can walk to the Artesian spring that flows year round so you can sip fresh water coming right out of our hillside. YUM. Next, the house tour and lounge on the deck admiring the vista and enjoying a beverage. We'll talk about the many upgrades to the property over the years & how it is to live here in peace and plenty. I look forward to meeting you!
I built my dream log home in the heart of the Boreal Forest near Talkeetna, cutting the trees and clearing the land to create my cabin paradise. Learn how my husband and I made our home from the wild land. We have been living here for twenty years and I would like to show you our beautiful place overlooking the Susitna Valley and the Alaska Range. I write, present, and coach on this lifestyle of connecting to wilderness and living the life you want. I have learned to create a life I love blending my experiences as an Archaeologist, Writer, Founder and Executive Director, Life Coach and Adventurer -all, from way out here, on my land. The bears, moose, coyote, and fox walk by, infusing this place with beauty. My two working sled dogs, cat and labrador, will remind you to go after what you crave.
The water will come from our Artesian spring, right out of the hillside below our home. It has been tested and is PURE…
There may be a few mosquitos so I will have some bug spray for you. Don't worry they won't be too bad!

Where you'll be
We walk the beautiful road we built to the home site we created from the forest and then tour the sauna and shop and the spring below our home. Then we will tour the log home built with our own two hands and we'll finish on the deck overlooking the Susitna Valley. All within our 20 acres of land.
