Girdwood house description

Located in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska, The Alyeska House is the perfect place from which to base your Alaskan adventure.

Do you want to see and experience the 'real' Alaska, without hordes of people accompanying your every move? Are you interested in hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, dog sledding and/or white water rafting? Do you want to set your own itinerary, based around things that you and your companions are interested in? If you answered yes to any of these questions then The Alyeska House in Girdwood is just what you've been looking for.

Arguably the finest rental property in Girdwood, The Alyeska House has everything you'd expect from a top end vacation rental. Two gas fireplaces, a hot tub on the front balcony, an enormous commercial styled kitchen, a master bed and bathroom complete with cable television and a walk in steam shower set The Vail House apart from other Girdwood properties.

In addition to the amenities offered at The Alyeska House, we also offer assistance in planning and booking your vacation. We know arranging a trip to Alaska is no small undertaking and are ready and willing to help. Our reservation manager, Luke, has years of experience living and working throughout south central Alaska. He can help with all facets of your vacation planning and is happy to offer friendly advice on what can and can't be missed on your trip.

Girdwood's location near Anchorage and very near the Kenai Peninsula make it a premium destination from which to base your Alaskan adventure. Whittier, the gateway to Prince William Sound, is located a mere 20 miles south of Girdwood and offers great day cruises with lots of glaciers, guided kayak trips and kayak rentals, water taxis and fishing charters. Within a hours drive of Girdwood you can find flight seeing trips (heli and fixed wing), fishing charters, amazing hiking and biking trails, class 5 white water, world class kayaking and awesome wildlife viewing. The world renowned Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is just a fifteen minute drive from the Alyeska House and offers up close views of brown and black bears, musk oxen, moose, caribou, and elk, among others.

The Alyeska House is located in a quiet neighborhood near the base of Mount Alyeska. An undeveloped meadow sits across Vail Drive to the south, and views of Max's and Alyeska Mountains can be seen to the north. Contact us today for more information on the house or planning your Alaskan vacation.
