Hi guys, so hubby and I have been looking around for property in the valley/ willow area. We currently live in Kenai and LOVE IT out here but for many reasons prefer the valley.
So tell me what it's like for you LIVING OUT THERE. I am a slope wife with a 2/2 rotation schedule - not bad but it tends to get very lonely at times. I have a 23 month old & am currently preg with #2 due in May. We are hoping if we find something that works to be moving this summer.
I see Willow is 22 miles out of Wasilla, how is it living out there. I read its 60% mostly recreational summer housing so its basically empty. Are there other families out there with little children? We plan on homeschooling/unschooling (still debating which will work for us)
Have any good real estate agents you could recommend? Websites? Know of any good property deals? We want land with a descent dwelling for kids to live in and for me to not go crazy during the winter months alone. We would like to spend max $100k trying to not go over unless the deal is good enough.
We currently use Natropaths/Homeopathy's any good references besides Anchorage as we use Adam Grove. Wasn't sure if there were any in the valley. Kid Activities?!?!? Kenai is a very family friendly town with lots of groups/activities you can have access too when feeling cooped up. Please tell me this is the same for the valley as my son is finally old enough to enjoy playing with others.
What sort of things are there to do in the summer time? We are looking forward to the U-Pick gardens for sure, but what else is there? Lakes? Hiking?
Thankfully we do Azure and what not and I am apart of Wolf Lake Wellness even though I'm too far to partake in your activities!
Thanks for taking the time to read my questions ~ we're getting excited but it's the whole moving into uncharted territory and as always a little apprehensive. Any comments are welcome! Thanks again ~N:
