 Our cabin was located on Jade Lake which is a small quiet lake less than 2 minutes from Big Lake. We enjoyed the fun recreation on Big Lake and were able to retreat to the serenity of our cabin on Jade Lake.

We took leisurely walks around the lake or took a drive and explore the wonders of the Mat-Su valley.

South Port Marina is only 1½ miles away.
– Big Lake is Alaska’s well known summer and winter playground.
– Summer activities: swimming, boating, jet skiing and fishing.
